Liore Broadcasting Company (LBC)
Non-profit Broadcasting agency that receives subsidies from the government. Neutral, but does lean slightly towards the government's stance.

Liori Telegraph
Main centre-right newspaper. Displays news neutrally regarding economics but does tend to support Liori politicians over Kunikatan ones.

Tainá (The Star)
Centre-left newspaper. Respected, but known to post biased left-wing news. Written in Liori.

ディスパッチ (The Dispatch)
Far-left newspaper, that often criticises the government. Advocates many populist ideas, which it writes in Kunikatan.

Tabare (The Independent)
Right-wing, pro-Liori newspaper. Advocates mainly for the removal of all Kunikatan culture, and make it compulsory to be Liori to run for office.

Liore Broadcasting Company (LBC)
Far-Right Liori Nationalists seize power in the House

- Conservative Plata Yvyguy voted President
- Coalition expected to see Nationalist Leader Tumé Tekove become leader of the House
- Left Wing party in House of Representatives for the first time in 50 years


Image
The Results of the House Election:
Liori Nationalist Party: 57 Seats
Communist Party - 40 Seats
Conservative Party - 30 Seats
Prosperity Party - 15 Seats
Kunikata Green Party - 8 Seats


The normally stable two-party political system in Liore has collapsed as the Prosperity Party and the Conservative Party lost heavily to extremist parties in the House of Representatives elections. Despite Plata Yvyguy of the Conservative Party comfortably winning the Presidency against the Liori Nationalist candidate, Marangatu Tupa Ñembo'agueravyju, in consequence to the unprecedented move of the Prosperity Party to endorse their traditional rivals in the second round. The introduction of the Kunikata Green Party, and the major success of the Communist Party also saw a properly left wing party win a seat within the House since the Prosperity Party abandoned its far-left platform fifty years ago.

The Liori Nationalist Party, which openly supports the genocide of all Kunikati and Midway people within Liore, looks set to have its leader be granted the position of Leader of the House by the President in a shaky coalition between the two more nationalistic parties. Whilst the Conservatives will doubtless disagree with the radical populist agenda of their likely make-shift allies, it appears they would be more open to the LNP than siding with the communists, though nothing has been confirmed as of yet.

Human Rights activists have already sounded the alarm of these results. The LNP fester support off the hatred of former colonialists the Sekowans, as well as the prehistoric feud with the Midway peoples. With almost 20% of the population consisting of Kunikatan people, and a further 4% of Midway people, were the LNP to get their way, over 2.5 million people could be in danger from thallerist-esc genocidal action.

President Resigns Under Popular Pressure
Bureaucratic chief replaces under-fire leader and begins widespread reforms aimed at restoring public confidence

Wednesday 29th October, 4487
Image

Following weeks of large-scale protests across the country, París Sumancho has announced his resignation as President of the Republic. Sumancho has been under pressure to resign for months following economic and political turmoil but this week it became particularly intense, with around 1 in 40 citizens estimated to have attended simultaneous marches in Naranpá and the capital Yamabiro. With Sumancho officially leaving office on Friday, questions were raised over who would replace him as leader of the nation.

The House of Representatives passed an emergency amendment to the constitution changing the process of Presidential succession yesterday morning, empowering themselves to elect a successor. Despite a decisive Conservative majority in the chamber, party leaders have chosen to appoint former head of the national bureaucracy Pipon Ccarima. In an attempt to restore public trust in the government, Ccarima has already announced his proposed reforms to the nation's political and economic institutions.

Ccarima has identified his immediate priority as restoring energy to the various parts of the country which have been plunged into blackout over the past year by nationalising two of the country's three largest suppliers. Aside from that, he spoke of his desire to create a more effective political system by improving the ability of the executive branch to act decisively and increasing the efficiency of the House of Representatives. The new President is expected to meet with the Chief of the Central Bank of Liore tomorrow afternoon to discuss the issuance of new currency to combat ongoing deflation.

Legislature Divided By Constitutional Reforms
Ccarima's threats to steamroll through legislation leads to early elections and new factions emerging

Tuesday 3rd September, 4488
Image

The legislature remains split over the President's proposals to push through radical reforms to the nation's political structure. Pipon Ccarima, an experienced bureaucrat, has been in the role for less than a year having been appointed to succeed París Sumancho following his resignation last October. Since then, he has sought to significantly alter the institutions of Liore and, in particular, to empower the head of state to make decisions on behalf of the nation but his latest round of reforms attracted a backlash from the leaders of the Conservative Party.

The legislation which has attracted the controversy would dramatically change how the government operates. Rather than a bicameral house, the House of Representatives would become the unicameral Federal Council and it would lose the power to override the President's legislative veto. In addition, the reforms would create the position of a National Director, above the President and the legislature, who would be responsible for "administering justice and the Constitution".

Although the Conservative Party appointed Ccarima and have been supportive of much of his platform, the party's federal leader made clear that he could not vote for the reforms. In response, several Conservative representatives joined with opposition party members to announce the formation of a new political faction called the "National Movement" to support the constitutional reforms. In the early elections which followed, the Movement failed to win a legislative majority but they successfully unseated the Conservatives as the largest party.

Ccarima has announced that the House will vote on the plans before the end of the month but their success hinges on the votes of the resurgent Prosperity Party. Public opinion appears to be strongly in favour of the reforms, with many citizens feeling that Liore has a complacent and ineffective government, although some critics have suggested that they give too much decision-making power to the executive branch and leave the national legislature as a "talking shop". The President himself described the reforms as "absolutely crucial to our survival as a nation".

President "Sacked" by National Director
Long term national figurehead is dismissed following controversy over attempts to unduly influence legislative votes

Wednesday 2nd February, 4495
Image

National Director Rudá Moriharu has utilised his "extraordinary power" to dismiss the nation's elected president, Pipon Ccarima, following controversy over his decision to urge the legislature not to approve various programmes being spearheaded by the National Movement party. For several years, Liore has been in a period of political and economic instability with constitutional reforms and economic adjustments being implemented and imposed on a constant basis. In announcing the dismissal of Ccarima, Moriharu claimed that it would mean "the end of an era of corruption and turbulence".

Pipon Ccarima had been President of Liore for the best part of a decade and during his tenure the country has undergone a series of transformations which have created, removed and modified a variety of roles and bodies within the government. Notably, he created the National Director position which has now led to his removal from office. The position is elected by the leaders of the country's nine departments and is intended to be an apolitical role that ensures smooth and effective government.

Over the past two years, though, Ccarima has been fighting a losing battle within his own political party. National Movement, founded to support the first constitutional reforms, is now the largest party across the country and dominates regional government but it has become fractured between allies of Ccarima and Kyr Guañuna, a radical nationalist and leader of the legislature who has called for "work camps" and an immigration shutdown. Moriharu's appointment as National Director last year was highlighted as the death knell for Ccarima's agenda due to the former's close relationship with Guañuna.

As a last stand against his political rival, the President has worked hard to convince legislators in the Federal Council not to override his veto of recent legislation passed to establish the first "work camp" for the unemployed in the mountainous regions in the north of the country. Moriharu claimed this was an overreach of Ccarima's power and has now called early presidential elections to replace him. In the interim, Moriharu himself has taken on the responsibilities of the President, with his first move to overturn the various vetoes Ccarima issued over Guañuna's legislation.
