CLV Elections Inconclusive; Dyshini Making Key Visits

The elections in the Confederated League of Vascania have led to a totally inconclusive result. The parliaments of Vanakalam and Kalkalistan have both failed to produce majorities, with the centrists having the balance of power in both houses. The national senate also failed to produce a majority, with 79 of its seats to the right, 65 to the left and 56 to the centre. This very split, three-way situation has led to total disarray in the nation, with all three factions now entering talks with each other in hope of creating a first official government of the Confederated League of Vascania. Prisa Kotecha of the right and Som Shekhar of the left, who both went to the same schools as children, have became bitter enemies in a dirty backroom battle for support. The centre is threatened to split apart as different members announce their intent. 89 seats are pledged to P. Kotecha, 88 to S. Shekhar so far.

The Presidential results may yet be even less conclusive. B. Vermikesh of the far-right, who caused much controversy with his really populist and anti-elitist, has 50.01% of the votes and liberal candidate Lavanya Tamhanakar has 49.99% of the votes. This means they are separated by a margin so small a recount is absolutely certain, which could take months. Supporters of both sides took to the streets in parades supporting their candidate. That the controversial Vermikesh is ahead is particularly concerning to supporters of the left, who were certain that on the day people would vote for some continuity. Tamhanakar was ahead in the polls, but Vermikesh got a last-minute boost when T. Sagana endorsed him. That an internationalist leader supports this xenophobic candidate is pretty stunning, but it seems Sagana's crude political move bore some pretty serious fruits. A recount will be held over the next few months, Sagana will remain in charge for the meantime.

Tambethra Dyshini, the incumbent Vascanian President of the GA, is planning to make key visits to Noumonde to discuss a deal to satisfy both sides of the crisis' divide, and to a visit Dankuk for a visit of strengthening bonds. Crown Princess Katsura Eun Kyung of Dankuk will be one of the key hosts of Dyshini when she goes to visit the nation, the Taeyang Light Palace, the Hananim Cathedral in Sinsudo, old Ryeo Palace in Wolgwangsudo, the Great Wall of Dankuk are all scheduled for potential sight-seeing too as the GA President tries to build ties between the World Council and Dovani nations. On the other hand, a meeting in Noumonde between key figures on both sides of the crisis unfolding there could lead to a key stabilisation which would set a strong precedent for rooting out unrest before a war starts. This could be a key step in starting a trend of ending conflict before it really begins, beginning a period of greater peace.

Power Split In Vascania With Liberal President And Conservative PM

Elections in the Confederated League of Vascania have officially produced a fully conclusive result after several months of negotiation and recounts in key areas. After several recounts across the nation, the 0.02% lead held by far-right presidential candidate B. Vermikesh was erased as many thousands of provisional ballots were added in to give the left's Lavanya Tamhanakar a lead of 0.03% which grew with each recount. With the results against him, Vermikesh was forced to concede but announced that he would not relent in achieving his political aims of strict immigration control and small government. While 80-year-old incumbent President T. Sagana had reluctantly endorsed Vermikesh, it is believed that she and fellow reluctant endorser PM Prisa Kotecha were secretly happy to not have to deal with the antics of the antagonistic, anti-establishment figure.

This election result means that both PM and President of Vascania will be women, though the Governor-Generals and First Ministers of both constituent regions and the Governors of all but 5 of the dozens of provinces will be men. The result also means that Prisa Kotecha and her thin majority-coalition in parliament will have to strike compromises with the left-wing and avowedly progressive internationalist President Tamhanakar. Kotecha's hopes of continuing the authoritarian governing style of Sagana may be cast to the winds, though Sagana continues in her old age to hold tremendous sway over the politics of the population. Tamhanakar hopes to create a national health service and free education and adult education up until the age of 25 for all citizens. Kotecha wants to make the CLV the main leader of the Dovani Union and a military power with a strong navy. How they reconcile their wants and hopes will have to unfold.

Lakshmi The Black Returns To Vascania To Claim The Throne

Image

18 years after the official, uncontested establishment of the Confederated League of Vascania, and 15 years after the first unitary election, the President of Vascania - leftist Karam Vaknis, elected 3 years ago to his first time after two-term incumbent of the same party Lavanya Tamhanakar stepped down - has confirmed that a boat carrying the dreaded pretender "Empress Lakshmi the Black" has docked itself secretly onto the shores of the CLV and disembarked the frightful ex-consort onto the CLV's territory. Aided by a gang of aging loyalists, the 50-year-old pretender to the title of "Empress of the Vascanian Empire" - a title never previously held in the history of the officially republican nation - has sought refuge and is now plotting her next move to insight war and conflict in the massive nation. Loved by none, feared by all, this is a shocking turn in the recent history of what had become a sleepy country.

After nearly two decades of peace and tranquillity, the nation has developed to a point that leaves it not far behind the first world in terms of economy and technology. It is universally considered a Newly Emerging Economy (NEE) by all serious economists, and it has a rate of GDP growth that is putting even powerhouses like Indrala, Dorvik and Vanuku to shame. It has, however, tried to distance itself from the decades of violence that ensued within it - even if the war-time President, T. Sagana, lives on in her late 90s. The progress of Vascania, however, has left it crowded and diverse: there are many, many barrels of gunpowder that only need ignition before one ethnic or economic tension explodes into violence. How a deeply despised figure can possibly convince a nation to back her is hard to picture, but a motion to start as inquest on how she got to Vascania has passed unanimously in the nation's unitary upper chamber and the two devolved, dual-lower-chambers.

Takarana Sagana Dies Aged 95

Image

After a double-hip replacement surgery on November 23rd, former President of the Confederated League of Vasakana - Takarana Sagana - has died of natural causes at the age of 95 surrounded by her family at home in Sangora, Vanakalam, Vascania. She was with her son T. Darethan and daughter S. Venegahama when she died, and three of her eight grandchildren and five of her thirty-one great-grandchildren. She lives behind dozens of descendants and even a great-great-granddaughter named in her honour. Her husband,
T. Janasapan, died five years prior, and she will be buried next to him in Sangora's Hosian cemetery. The 95-year-old had shown several signs of her health weakening over the last year, culminating in multiple surgeries and several long stays at the hospital, but it was not until early December she was informed by her doctors she hadn't long left to live.

Sagana was born Tarabai Sagana on April 5th 4365 in Sangora to two rice farmers, growing up in poverty. She was lucky enough to get an education at a small school two miles from where she lived, to which she walked with her ten older brothers and one younger sister every day. While all twelve of the siblings attended the free primary education, only Sagana was granted a government subsidy for gifted children to attend secondary education - making her the first person in the family to still be in education by the time she reached 16. From there, she received yet another subsidy due to outstanding academic success, but delayed going to college after the death of both of her parents so as to look after her younger sister. After working to help her sister, she was finally able to raise enough money to send her sister to a nun-led boarding school - the cheapest way to keep her well looked after.

Sagana went to the only university in the Sangora region when she was 20, and studied Medicine in the hopes of becoming a doctor. However, she met her future husband Janasapan and married him as soon as she left university. She put aside her ambitions to have a twin son and daughter, but was discouraged from having any more children after a miscarriage. During her time as a parent, Sagana developed a keen interest in politics - particularly in keeping it fair and uncorrupted. After living as a full-time mother until the age of 38, Sagana entered the world of work as a electoral overseer. She eventually was able to work her way up from that position to the position of Electoral Committee Chairwoman due to her firm standards of electoral overseeing which had seen Sangora deliver the most accurate, traceable and unquestioned results in all of Vanakalam's elections.

Her push for free and fair elections brought her directly into conflict with the plan of communist leader Chairwoman Amishana Suhanthra in April 4411, when the nation's communist government refused to call an election. As IEC chairwoman, Sagana pressured the communist government but to no avail. Upon turning to the military for help in conducting a free and fair election, and having her compromises rejected by Chairwoman Suhanthra, Sagana and her allies were besieged by the forces of the communists. What followed was a bloody conflict that took years and years to resolve. Sagana was a key player on the side of the anti-communist forces, forming the Forum for Democracy and helping to organise the armed struggle that went up against urban and chemical warfare while facing a massive number of conscripted enemy troops. The Vanakalamese civil war raged on, taking millions of lives, until April 4424. Sagana became the Vice-President, but became President after the assassination of her predecessor.

The time for peace did not come yet, however, as the brutal oppression of the Kalkalistanis by Emperor Raghu led to another war, the Vascanian War, which saw a complex web of princely alliance form along ethnic and religious divides against the Emperor. Massive-scale war raged across the continent, with thousands of miles of battle-lines sprawling across the map. Millions died and millions more were injured during the heavy fighting which culminated in the usage of crucifixion and chemical gas attacks by the Emperor's wife. The brutal usage of princely levies, naval assaults, guerrilla warfare and last stands created a spider's web of conflict which may well go down as the largest single war geographically and in terms of population effected in the last few centuries. The conflict became the largest single theatre of the Dovani War. Vascania was ultimately united, and Sagana became the first President of the united nation, the Confederated League of Vascania.

Sagana was a figure that was, and still is, beloved and idolised in the nation she ruled and the nation she united. A towering figure in the politics of the region for half a century, Sagana came up against some of the most violent and cruel warmongers in the history of Terra and stood triumphant. Her legacy is a rapidly growing economy, a rapidly advancing nation and a union of many different ethnic and linguistic groups to create a continent that is united and at peace. 93% of Vascanians have a positive view of the former President, compared to just 2% who don't. Her death has led to public mourning in the streets, and services being held in temples and churches across the nation. With an election coming up in just a few months, the question of whether nostalgia for the late politician will help her Republican Alliance party is still up in the air. Whatever the case, no person has left as great an influence on the continent as her, and she may well go down as the most influential woman of the century, if not the millennium.

Domestic Terrorism Overshadows Election Results

Image
Above: The Bhadhaya Building was deliberately set on fire in the culmination of a series of covert terrorist acts.


Karam Vaknis was re-elected as the President of the Confederated League of Vascania, but his and his socialist party's electoral success has been overshadowed by monarchist terrorist incidents occurring in the Bhapor region of Kalkalistan. While Vaknis celebrated a 123-of-200 seat victory nationally and a litany of more regional victories - as well as Vakni's reelection to the presidency - the nation has had to mourn the deaths of upwards of 200 people in a series of religiously and politically motivated attacks by so-called "Disciples of the Empress (DotE)". The small group of radical traditionalists believe that the extremely feared and vicious Lakshmi "the Black", Vascania's most wanted criminal, who was responsible for the human rights abuses and war crimes of the pro-Imperial forces in the Vascania War, is in fact a personification of the Gods' rage come to return the world to the old ways.

The Empress' followers believe that the wicked and cruel actions of Lakshmi were done out of necessity for her - the perceived Avatar of the archetypal Death Goddess - to achieve victory in her holy crusade against western imperialism. She, in their minds, is fighting to bring the people of Dovani back to their old gods and to end the scourge of western influence on the continent. They have so far set on fire the famous Bhadhaya Building in Bhapor City, killing 87 people, and committed many random 'sacrifices', totalling over one hundred total victims so far from said activities. Other extra-judicial killings of those considered sinful have also occurred, though these were less sacrifices and more acts of vengeance in the name of the Empress. Authorities within the nation continue to try to crack down on the extremists, but with growing admiration of Lakshmi as a protector of the old ways in Vascania and now in Noumonde among the Malgy people, there are concerns she could actually take on the title of Queen of the Malgy and then wage wars of terror across the continent with her followers at her side.

Tambethra Dyshini's Daughter Elected New Leader Of Republican Alliance, Announced Presidential Bid

Image
Above: Tambethra Asharika.


Tambethra Dyshini, the former head of the World Congress, has passed on her political legacy to Tambethra Asharika, her daughter. Tambethra Asharika recently won a ballot to elect the next leader of the centre-right Republican Alliance, who has been out of power since the creation of the Confederated League of Vascania and has never won a presidential race. It only held power for the first parliamentary term, but now has lost support everywhere even in its heartlands of northern Vanakalam and southern Kalkalistan. Tambethra is probably the most reputable and well-known candidate they've yet to put up as their leader, and the recognition of the political dynasty "Tambethra" carries significant weight on the ballot papers and in the polls. Already, the RA and its allies have jumped from 31% in the polls to a whopping 51%, a massive increase that puts them for the first time in decades ahead of the left.

Asharika has announced that she will be running for President against incumbent Karam Vaknis who will be seeking yet another term, his third in total. 69-year-old Karam and 42-year-old Tambethra are probably as far apart as you can get in the society of Vanakalam. One born into a wealthy family of political significance and one growing up as a peasant farmer and a war veteran. However, Karam's inspiring and brave backstory will have to go up against a great amount of charisma and a lot of big ideas. For example, Tambethra has really tapped into the religious and traditional roots of many of the left's supporters, who are left mainly on economic issues. Knowing that she cannot win the fight on liberal economics alone, which has usually been the Tambethra playbook, she has now taken to praying openly and even entertaining ideas of a monarchy. How this refutation of her family's traditionally socially liberal ideology is yet to be seen in government, but perhaps it will be soon.
