November 4433

The new President of Xsampa, Lhamo Dramuktsang

As demanded by the peace terms between the Northern Council and Xsampa, elections have been held throughout the country. Two different parties have been former in wake of the election.

The first party is the National Republican Party. The NRP has stated there support for republicanism and democratic elections. They’ve also stated there support for a new, reformed government that supports the Northern Council and denounced colonial nationalism.

The second party is the Imperial Monarchists Party who continues to support a constitutional monarchy and wishes to elevate a new monarch to the throne and create a new Xsampan Empire.

The elections results were very close, however in the end the National Republican Party won with 53.5 % of the popular vote.

After the vote, King Wangdue gave a speech in front of the Imperial Palace, congratulating the National Republican Party and stating he was resigning from the post go king

Soon after that speech, it was reported King Wangdue left the Imperial Palace and entered a limousine heading in a unknown direction.

Now the minority Hosianisms in the area (Hosianism make up 10% of the populous) are under the control of the majority Daenists (Daenists make up 87% of the populous) and with the Hosianism monarch apparently leaving forever, Hosianisms may never be as powerful as they once were and will soon be ruled over by Daenists

Civil Strife Increases As Paramilitaries Attack Party Supporters
OOC:I know I’ve been absent. But here’s the first post in a while
May 4442
For Almost 20 years Xsampa has been locked in civil and political strife. The two parties, The Nationalist Royal Party and the Republican Party, have continually fought back and fourth over the Senate of Xsampa. Laws have stalled and no party has ever gain enough for constitutional changes like the Nationalist Royal Party continues to want. Laws have stayed the same since the beginning of the republic.

Yet now it seems as though the nation could be plunged into civil war. Recently the Nationalist Royal Party has established a Paramilitary, against national law. The police weren’t able to stop them as corrupt police officers and political officials refused to arrest any party members. In response the Republican Party changed the law to legally allow paramilitaries and created there own.

Now political violence has spread throughout the nation. And with only 49% of the population voting or even participating in national elections, it seems that the nation has lost interest in politics.

But the politicians have not and they’ve gotten more desperate to change the nation. Political distress and violence has continued ever since the end of the empire.

King Wangdue hasn’t been seen since he left the palace years ago. Babpiboon has become ruler over large swathes of Hanzen and now has proclaimed himself the Emperor of the Hanzen Empire.

But life remains the same in Xsampa. The people are relatively poor and live in villages and ghettos. The government is corrupt and the nation is poor altogether. If something doesn’t change in the government, this will always be the same.

Protests Begin In Xsampa As Report Detailing Government Corruption Comes Forward

August 19th, 4462-A recent report by independent media sources has shown that the senators and president of the republic make more than 250,000 dollars each.

This has sparked protests throughout Xsampa and especially within the capital city. The government has proclaimed these protests illegal and have sent federal forces into the streets with orders to disperse any crowd they spot forming.

Image

However many soldiers have also joined the protests and they’ve continuously grown in numbers. The protests haven’t stopped. On the contrary, the protests have instead grown in size and magnitude. Yet this has only prompted the current Republican government to call upon its paramilitary to end the protests.

We shall see if this leads to anything.

Royalists Elect New Leader
Choezom Gyaltsen becomes sixth consecutive Sikyong from the conservative party

Friday 22nd October, 4486
Image

Desi Bhuchung II approved the formation of a new government this evening, following a change in leadership for the governing Royalist Party. Choezom Gyaltsen has been appointed as Sikyong, shortly after he was elected leader of the Royalists in a vote of the party's governing body. Gyaltsen's election makes him the sixth consecutive premier to come from the Royalist Party and they have now governed Xsampa for over twenty years since the collapse of the republican system in 4463.

Elections are scheduled to be held for the Legislative Assembly, the Parliament's lower house, next April but these are unlikely to impact the legislature's overall composition. The upper house, the Spiritual Assembly, is dominated by conservative religious delegates who are perceived as extremely loyal to the Desi. Consequently, they can be relied on to vote in favour of Royalist legislation on most occasions. Even so Gyaltsen spoke of his hope of increasing the party's majority.

Like his predecessors, the new Sikyong is an experienced politician. A former lawyer, he spent half a decade as the Desi's most senior legal adviser prior to his election to Parliament. Unlike his predecessors, however, Gyaltsen is identified with the ultra-conservative wing of the party and has promised that his priority for governance will be restoring traditional Xsampan values to society. Critics in the outlawed National Republican Party have argued that in reality, this will mean further curtailment of political freedom is to be expected.

Sikyong Choezom Gyaltsen Announces New Economic Program
November 4486(backlogged)
——————————————————————————————————————————————————
Sikyong Choezom Gyaltsen has announced a series of economic programs to-in his own words-“better the ailing nation”.

The new economic programs will mainly focus on three things, according to Mr. Gyaltsen himself.

The first and most important is industrial expansion. Mr. Gyaltsen has stated his willingness to lower tax rates and tariffs to entice businesses to set up factories and regional headquarters in the country.

Next, Mr. Gyaltsen stated his willingness to enter a free trade agreement with nations such as Kimlien, Lourenne, and Indrala.

Finally, Mr. Gyaltsen has announced a domestic business initiative, where the government would subsidies the costs of domestic companies in exchange for them keeping there business in Xsampa and continuing to pay taxes to the Xsampan government.

Several companies have already begun talks with the government concerting opening up regional headquarters.

The Antone Corporation announced there intentions to open a casino and a Keymon electronics store within Xsampa. They also announced there plans to construct a regional headquarter within the country.

The Sikyong’s initiatives have been met with public backlash however. Members of the banned National Republican Party have criticized the move as a “populist push”.

Backlash has also come from members of the hated Xsampan Communist Party or XCP. They’ve complained that the working conditions in Xsampa need to be reformed and have also criticized the government’s decision to allow foreign companies to invest drastically in Xsampa.

However the government has stuck to its guns and hasn’t backed down from the plans.

Sikyong Choezom Gyaltsen Proposes Anti-Communist Legislation
April 4486(backlogged)
——————————————————————————————————————————————————
Sikyong Choezom Gyaltsen has proposed anti-communist legislation into the Legislative Assembly, currently being dominated by the Royalist Party.

Image
Sikyong Choezom Gyaltsen

Sikyong Choezom Gyaltsen has continuously criticized the Xsampan Communist Party as a-“destabilizing agent of foreign socialist demands”.

The legislation proposed, if passed, will forbid the XCP(Xsampan Communist Party) from maintaining a paramilitary, which would make the Royalist Party the only party to have a paramilitary.

The legislation would also forbid registered members of the XCP from owning any firearms in the future and all XCP members would also have to turn in there existing firearms.

This change has been met with immense backlash from the XCP and has caused small acts of violence. It is currently being reported that a small group of XCP members have vandalized a local city hall.

The XCP has officially condemned the legislation and the acts of violence committed by some of its members in an official press statement.

The XCP however has been met with violence from royalist paramilitary forces and from armed citizens, officially called “vigilantes” by the government.

However, the Legislative Assembly at this point is merely a rubber stamp for Sikyong Choezom Gyaltsen.

The bill is almost certain to pass both the Legislative Assembly and the Spiritual Assembly, both of which have become rubber stamps for the royalists.

It is also unlikely for the courts to overturn this decision, as the constitution does not state that citizens have the right to keep and bear arms, therefore the government can take whatever actions it wishes, concerning firearms.

Xsampn Communist Party Holds Protest in Capital City
May 2nd, 4486, 6:25 P.M
——————————————————————————————————————————————————
After legislation that banned us from maintaining a paramilitary and preventing our members from owning firearms, we’ve decided to protests this decision by marching in the capital city Lhasa.

This march is to prove to the Sikyong that we are not rebels. We are political opponents and that we have a voice. A strong loud voice.

We shall all meet together at the courthouse, then we shall march towards governmental offices and buildings.

We are not to use force against police and counter-protesters. We are peaceful, not violent.

We shall bring a petition right to Sikyong Choezom Gyaltsen to allow our members to carry firearms, like all other citizens are allowed to do.

We hope that he will accept this petition due to our numbers. However we must also be prepared to accept failure.

We hope to see you all there.
