OOC: Election of November 4345 (10th February In Real Life - GMT Time) - Away so I couldn't post

Eastern Party Extend Majority as Federalists Fall Apart
Brought to you by the CND Independent

The Eastern Party have furthered their dominance within the CND following an increase of 26 seats in the Federal Elections. Collecting the province of Carmarthen, as well as overtaking the Federalist Party in the Pong-am-ri Province, the pro-Draddwyr party raced away to a strong Assembly majority. Meanwhile, support for the Federalist Party collapsed following infighting over where the direction of the party should be headed following the emergence of the Eastern Party. The Left Party managed to gain a majority for the first time in Mieronjavre, whilst the Social Democratic Party held on to their plurality in Machynlleth, where the capital is located.

The results come following the abandoning of the position of Governor-General by the Eastern Party. Despite the increasing gulf between the two ethnicities within the CND, the greater number of the Draddwyr populace have helped secure the nationalist libertarian party an increase in seats against its rivals. Running on a platform of "fighting Dankukian corruption which has festered within the system," the government took home the full set of the "eastern states" (Pontypridd, Llanberis, Carmathen, and Aberhonddu) as well as winning a majority in Chandaemi. The party also managed to gain a plurality in the Province of Pong-am-ri.

However, the real surprise came, not in the extent of the Eastern Party's victory, but rather in the extent of the Federalist Party's collapse. Following its embarrassing performance in November of 4340, it must have hoped that it could have at least gained back a few of its lost seats from its traditional rivals, the Social Democrats, who won't be particularly happy either. Despite increasing their seat share in the province of Machynlleth, the majority in Mieronjavre for the Left Party sees the more extreme left-wing party in the Assembly gain the position of the Official Opposition.

Perhaps it is not surprising that, following the increase of more extreme right wing politics, that the Left Party would end up jumping ahead of the Federalists and the Social Democrats, as those to the left of the spectrum scramble to try and prevent the Eastern Party from consolidating their views into legislation. Winning a majority in any province for the first time in the party's history, the Left Party ironically most likely have experienced their success as a result of the government's successes this election. Despite this, the new legislature will be the most extreme in the CND's history. And that nearly always never ends well.

Social Democratic Party - 15 seats; Federalist Party - 12 seats; Eastern Party - 7 seats; Left Party - 6 seats

New Corruption Laws to Close Kyo Bank Accounts Greater than 10 million DRA
Brought to you by the CND Independent

The Eastern Party has today pressed forward with plans that will see the closure of hundreds of wealthy Kyo bank accounts, in the government's plan to clamp down on corruption. The move, which will see money removed from any citizen or foreign national who is ethnically Kyo, has been heavily criticised by the Opposition leader, Aase Kjellberg, who called the legislation "racist" and a "betrayal of the values of the CND."

The legislation being brought to the Federal Assembly by the government will automatically shut down any bank accounts which exceed a total of 10 million Dranland, the Dankukian currency which is used in the CND. The government reports that there are in excess of 3000 of these accounts in the country, and that the seizing of the accounts will result in another 90 billion Dranland going to the Treasury. In what they claim is a clamping down on corruption, the government argue that by seizing "foreign" assets, they can further the prosperity of the Draddwyr citizens of the CND through reinvestment in business.

The government also claim that their plan will remove wealth from those responsible for the oppression of the CND. Arguing that it "nearly all" Kyo nationals can trace their wealth back to the oppression of North Dovani, the ruling party are using the opportunity to take wealth out of the pockets of the Kyo populace, who tend to be the wealthier of the two major ethnicities in the CND.

The Finance Minister, Ceredig Bevan, said that the legislation would not only cut down on illegal profit made in the CND, but also allow the government to further incentivise and boost the North Dovanian economy.

There is a reason that myself, and my Right Honourable Friend, the Minister of Justice, have collaborated very closely in the process of creating this legislation. The government aims to kill two birds with one stone with this legislation, the first bird being the deep level of corruption still remaining from the Dankuk regime, and the second bird being the slowing down of the economy in recent times under a Federalist government.

Our plan is to simply seize the assets of wealthy Kyo nationals, nearly all of whom can trace their wealth back to the days of the Dankukian regime, and reinvest this new found money into our economy by encouraging the growth of small business, and of the ever growing tertiary sector. Whilst there will be a tiny few who may be innocent, in reality the extent of corruption amongst the Kyo populace is so deep that the full reset that we have proposed is necessary to stamp out Dankuk's remaining presence in our nation once and for all.


However, the Leader of the Left Party - the main Opposition party in the CND, labelled the bill as "racist," saying that the Eastern Party had shown their true colours as "fascist Draddwyr ultra nationalists." Whilst the Left Party leader praised the redistribution of wealth that this legislation would result in, Kjellberg said that many Draddwyr nationals had also benefited financially from Dankuk's administration of the nation, and through not seizing these assets as well, the Eastern Party was clearly discriminating based upon race.

This latest announcement marks a turning point in Eastern Party legislation. Whereas before it appeared that economic gain was the main motive of the pro-Draddwyr policies, this new law is clearly meant to attack Kyo nationals. The Kyo Heritage Group have made a public plea, calling for other nations to intercede before "discrimination descends to darker practices," a clear reference to their fear of possible genocide in the country.

OOC: I understand that for a 3rd World Nation the numbers quoted may appear relatively large. From the game mechanics (Dankuk's economics page) the Dranland appears to be a relatively weak currency, and hence the money in question isn't as big as it may appear to be.

Dankuk an "Imperialistically Minded, Bureaucratic Autocracy," says Chancellor of the CND
Brought to you by the CND Independent

Chancellor Penrose attacked the recent defeated motion within the Dankukian legislature. Although the legislature rejected the proposal, this was done over a matter of whether militaristic or diplomatic opposition would be adopted by Dankuk, rather than whether they supported the CND's current government. As a result, the Chancellor called the vote a display of an "imperialistically minded, bureaucratic autocracy" which confirmed Dankuk's aims, only leaving people in the dark over how these aims were to be achieved.

Rebutting the accusation that the Eastern Party was "oppressive and racist," the Chancellor said that Dankuk were the true racists.

If it is a matter of who's the racist, as Dankuk appear to have tried to make it, then it is quite clear that the only culprit is them. They wish to see Kyo dominion continued in an inherently Draddwyr nation. It is quite clear that they will be effected by our set of corruption laws, and as a result they have decided this is the best way to react - by getting all in a stir that their Establishment is finally being demolished in the CND.

The bill in question, and their disagreement over how they should approach the condemnation of our nation shows Dankuk to be an imperialistically minded, bureaucratic autocracy." They didn't debate on whether or not we were guilty of anything that they accused us of - which we are not. Rather they skipped straight to how we should be punished.


However, the Left Party said that, whilst Dankuk wasn't a traditional ally of the CND, their concern over the regime being set up by the Eastern Party was one shared by many in North Dovani. Kjellberg called on Dankuk to send respond to the matter with sanctions in order to attempt to stop the Eastern Party from "destroying any more of our country".
