Istapalian Citizen
President Successful In Llaqta Power Struggle

21st May 4315

Istapalian President and leader of the Socialist Party Yolyamanitzin Cipac has emerged victorious in a struggle for power centring on the leadership of Suyu Llaqta's United Socialist Worker's Party (USWP). Following weeks of tough campaigning, the President's preferred candidate Yana Pinto emerged victorious in the first test of support for the Socialist Alliance of Dovani (SOCALLID) from a party membership since its formation last year. Pinto's rivals were both publicly sceptical of the alliance and the leadership contest became dominated by the issue as the campaign wore on. Political analysts had highlighted the race as an important sign for the future of the young supra-national organisation.

The leadership election followed the resignation of incumbent leader Illari Caipa and was conducted as a ballot of the entire membership of the USWP, one of the largest internal party electorates in the world. Pinto's primary rival was Chawar Alca, a perceived moderate who was described as being "cautious" of Istapali, and the third candidate was the nationalist Ignacio Rottmanner- a fierce critic of the SOCALLID. Both defeated candidates were critical of President Cipac for mobilising the Socialist Party of Istapali to support Pinto's election campaign. Estimates suggest that the eventual winner spent twenty times more on campaign material, such as leaflets, billboards and social media campaigns, than his rivals. Rottmanner decried it as a "foreign stitch up".

Speaking to journalists shortly after the result was announced, the President referred to Pinto's victory as a "fantastic outcome for socialism, internationalism and cooperation between nations on Dovani" however Tochtli Atl, a professor of International Relations at the University of Okopetlan had a more cynical view. According to her, "the result means that Istapali has massively increased its influence in the Socialist Llaqta Republic and in Suyu Llaqta as a whole. With Pinto's position so entirely dependent on the support of the Istapalian Socialists, his government would be foolish to act against their interests. Across the border in the Free Territory, the news is unlikely to be received well."

Istapalian Troops to be sent to help Medina

3000 Elite Istapalian Troops will be flown in by air to support Medina against foreign invasion. By first world standards, the force is nothing too special, it will likely be far more experienced and better trained than most of the third world opponents it is facing. Due to the naval blockade, the troops will have to be flown in by air.
