Major Reforms In Midway // CCN

Image

The newly elected President Izel Atl Ixtli has began a major reform programme in the nation of Midway, with major new changes being announced in environmental, economic and educational policy amongst others. A flagship policy of Ixtli's campaign, the change of primary energy source from fossil fuels to wind, is already commissioned to happen with massive projects being constructed on both sides of the nation, in the vast sea territory controlled by the country. Enough energy to power the entire country twice over will be generated by a long-term - 20 year - plan that will totally phase out fossil fuels and allow the exportation of renewable energy to other Dovani nations. The cost will be immense, but the rewards major.

Another, cheaper, change is the change in regulations on businesses and unions. Unions will have power stripped away from them, requiring majority internal ballots for strike action and banning non-open shops. This is meant to 'decrease the unnecessary and burdensome burden on smaller businesses', according to the Conservative Union-controlled Finance Ministry. The country has also gotten rid of corporate tax for new, small-scale, entrepreneurial startups for their first year. The businesses effected by this change are predicted to grow far faster by economists, but once again it comes at massive expense to the country's coffers. This increase in expenditure has more than one economist very worried for Midway.

The massive role-outs in infrastructural, educational and economic plans and tax exemptions are all down in funding terms to the massive increase in inheritance tax. This proposal has caused a split between Ixtli's Unity party and the Conservative Union that has supported them in the Assembly. Instead, Ixtli must rely on the Socialists to institute the radical 'meritocracy tax' which taxes inheritance to a point unseen before in democratic nations across Terra. While it does have exemptions for inheritor of certain ages and health conditions, unless an inheritor has contributed towards the wealth they are inheriting, they will have to pay tax rates between 70% and 90%. This does increase public income, but also is deeply unpopular amongst the rich and middle class.

Midway Economy Booms, Welfare Reforms Passed // CCN

The centre-right Unity-Conservative alliance in Midway has continued to pass rather radical changes in the increasingly developed nation. Formerly a backwater in a backwater part of the world, reforms are continuing to astound pundits. Tanaka Tepin, the Prime Minister of Midway, has just this week spoken to some of the nation's most powerful business-people in a large conference meeting on the success of the Midway economy. The stock market of Midway has risen by 60% since the outing of the Socialist Party, while the GDP has grown to levels not too far off some Majatran nations. Amidst this success, a slew of more reforms have also been passed - particularly in the key areas of welfare and education.

In education, the investment from the government into schools and universities has increased by over 23% - creating a moderate deficit in the medium-sized Dovani nation. However, the changes are predicted to increase the average results of school children and students in Midway, especially due to the large investment in rural and poor urban areas that have lagged behind historically. Midway's schools and universities will have 'greatly improved and modernised resources to use to study and to learn', according to the Ministry of Education - led by the Unity Party's deputy leader Icnoyotl Zyacotl. President Ixtli herself held a round-table with headteachers and principals from across the nation before this policy was passed and 'got their approval', according to sources.

In welfare, the government will officially end funding for non-disability, non-pension welfare programmes next month - which will bring the deficit back into control. This will coincide with the official launch of the Ministry of Trade and Industry's new programme to seek out simple employment for able-bodied but unemployed people. By the end of the five-year term of the President, this being the middle of that term, the government is set to introduce a universal basic income that will cost far less than the current welfare programme, and will top up minimum-wage pay to a living wage without the need to put stress on business. Despite the massive increase in expenditure in Midway, the increase in economic growth is allowing income to catch up at an accelerating rate.

Midway warns international community; "We cannot help these refugees any longer."

A refugee camp in Midway

Midway - President Tsuga Kinzo warns the international community that a humanitarian disaster is developing. The Bianjie Civil War has now raged on for 6 years, and more than 170.000 refugees have arrived in Midway. But the Midway state does not have the recources to provide the Bianjie refugees of al neccesary goods to survive. In the biggest refugee camp in Midway, near Ngu̱hnu, more than 12.000 refugees are stuck in the crowded camp.

Food and water is limited, and diseases rule. After repeated criminal activities outside of the camp by refugees, the refugees are now locked in the camp. This has caused an even worse situation, as the refugees can't get acces to supplies outside of the camp. Humanitarian organisations are asking the international community to help. Their plea has yet to be answered.

The refugees are not accepting these problems, and over the last weeks the refugees have protested against this situation. The protests even resulted in 2 deaths after protesters attacked the police trying to control the riots. For now president Kinzo has put its military to guard the camps to control the refugees.

President Kinzo asks the international community to take over some refugees and provide money for the refugee camps. Other than that, he asks the fighting parties to negotiate a ceasefire before the whole of Bianjie flees to Midway.

UDAP begins humanitarian operations in Midway.

22nd November, 4382.

The United Developmental Assistance Programme (UDAP) working alongside humanitarian agencies within Midway and the World Congress has launched humanitarian operations to ease the burden on the government of Midway as the nation tackles a refugee crisis at the hands of the on-going conflict in Bianjie. Essential items such as food, water and clothing are expected to be airlifted in the nation. The humanitarian operation is a indicator that UDAP has expanded greatly in its years of silence, moving from a minor humanitarian organisation to one with transnational reach. According to officials from UDAP staged in Midway prior to the launch of official humanitarian operation, the refugees residing in the nation currently live in appalling conditions. Individuals within the refugee camp near Ngu̱hnu have been subject to various diseases which leads to the response by UDAP as the organisation moved to assist in the situation and potentially curb the formation of a health crisis in the camp and the wider nation of Midway.

UDAP has called on the international community to bring the situation in Bianjie to an end and allow for humanitarian organisations to enter the region and begin the process of "peace-building". President of UDAP, Detlef Kachel has stated that the organisation would be dedicating large amounts of humanitarian aid to the nation. It is expected that the various refugee camps in Midway are to be improved with UDAP provided amenities such as tents and mattresses. Mr. Kachel stated the organisation would be involved in the peacekeeping mission in Bianjie once the Northern Council has seized its bombing campaign and it has also stated that it will be involved to a major extent in the situation in Medina, providing humanitarian assistance to the nations and their respective people. Currently UDAP is the only major humanitarian organisation responding to the situations in Dovani.

From the Rutanian News Network

rep wrote:Rutania Elitist Party re-established: "we want full inquiry into the loss of our colony"

August 4403, Bozarburg, Commonwealth of Rutania- After more than a century of political exile, the offsprings of the old political dynasties of the party have returned to Rutania and decided to re-establish the Rutanian Elitist Party, the leading force in Rutanian politics between the 28th and 33rd centuries. The party of the Klausenburgs, Bozarburgs, Bruckenthals and Vandermarks has elected Sylvia Hinter-Vandermark (a descendant of the Vandermark-dyanasty which played an important role not only in the REP, but in the once great Orange party, and also gave the monarchs of the shortly-lived Kingdom of Rutania and East Dovani) at the helm of the re-founded party.

[...]

The party also want to set up a select committee on the colonial past of Rutania. "We want to uncover how the irresponsible politicians played away Rutanian holdings in the Carina Neck, formerly known as Rutanian East Dovani" - shared his anger the Shadow Foreign Secretary of REP, Oliver Vandermark VI.
