Wolts steps out of life
September 3, 4348

Just days after the elections, former President Kristof Wolts has chosen to leave this life. He was 71 years old and became known to the public in 4313 when he was elected Representative for LNC.
Wolts had announced to quit politics once more. He already did that once, but made a comeback when asked to run as Presidential candidate for the coalition partners LNC and PLUP. He did rally for Dean Vonders, but the electorate found Lester Horton more suitable for the position. Kristof handed over the key to his office to vice-President Vonders, who now has the duty to pass it to the new President elect. The LNC family is devastated, but understands the decision of a good Gorkyist.

Annie Wolts makes a step back
March 26, 4349

Prime Minister Annie Wolts has announced to step back from office soon. She has lead the Government during the last decade. The death of her father, former President Wolts, has influenced her decision.
"It was an honour serving the people of Lodamun, not in the least during the last period when my father held the office of President. But it is now time to quit. Now is the time to invest some time in my family." Annie Wolts is happy to end her function under the current circumstances. "We have made some changes in Lodamun, we have helped all of our citizens to get a better life. Now it is up to the next generation to cherish what they received and to make Lodamun even better than it currently is. I can leave the office with the reassurance that my successor, Mr. Vonders, will do a hell of a job. Coalition talks with PLUP are in their final stage and I believe that we will be able to present a new Cabinet not later than next week."
Annie had a wonderful political carreer, but there still is one thing she would like to change: "I have seen my father being elected President of the Republic, yet I know he was quite reluctant to accept his candidacy for office. He prefers the way those before us used. And I believe it would be a privilege to change the electorate system of teh executive back to what it was."
Annie Wolts will remain Representative of LNC, that is if no one wishes to challenge her.

Wolts no longer Representative
October 4, 4354

Former Prime Minister Annie Wolts has announced in a press meeting that she has stepped down as Representative of LNC today. She will be replaced by the relatively unknown Freek Dejonghe. He was the only candidate for the position.
Wolts led the party for just over 20 years. Yet she feels as if the time has come to pass over the rudder of the party to a young force. It will be 34 year old Freek Dejonghe. He has been working in the Wolts Cabinet for a few years now and is said to be the coming man in politics. Paulo Mrazni, Minister of Education and Culture, would also quit politics. He will probably wait till after next elections.

CoS & GI: SELEYAN COUNTRIES SHOULD PURSUE THE PATH OF FURTHER INTEGRATION
Nowogard, September 4364

Original Article: CoS & GI: SELEYAN COUNTRIES SHOULD PURSUE THE PATH OF FURTHER INTEGRATION

Gloria Iustitia's new headquarters (building in the center) in Nowogard, Valruzia.

NOWOGARD - In what seems to be the first official document issued jointly by human rights and democracy organization Gloria Iustitia, and the Council of Seleya which is aimed at preservation of multicultural characteristics of the Seleyan continent and at the same time monitor the state of democracy, human rights and the rule of law, diplomats from the Council of Seleya and lawyers from Gloria Iustitia say that Seleyan Union should work out the future shape of the Seleyan Union. Gloria Iustitia praised the legacy of the Seleyan Union which in the last couple decades became one of the top three areas on Terra where democracy is respected and citizens of Seleyan Union can enjoy peaceful life outside of any life-endangering conflict. In the document called "Seleya: Agenda for future and peace 4400" Gloria Iusitia and Council of Seleya point out that in recent decades the Seleyan Union which represents saw an unprecedented economic growth and according to the authors of the document, that is the result of closer economic cooperation on the continent and taking down economic barriers between member states. Council of Seleya highlights the importance of the Aloboro Agreement which, despite Valruzia and Alduria are the only participants, significantly affected the economic cooperation between the two countries, especially in the automotive. CoS underlines the fact that the Agreement contributes to growth in all sectors of the economy and especially in services, as with no border controls people are most likely to travel throughout Seleya. According to the document, Valruzian Ministry of Internal Affairs claims that average annual number of Aldurian tourists visiting Valruzia is 230 thousand, while the National Office for Statistical Research about 310 thousand of Valruzians visit Alduria every year. When compared with numbers before the Agreement came into force, we can see that they are roughly twice as high without the border patrols. Both Valruzian and Aldurian tourist industry benefits greatly every year thanks to the Alboro Agreement, in both countries the recent decades of saw increase in the total number of hotels and resorts and both quantitative and qualitative growth of the tourist and leisure infrastructure. In Valruzia tourist and leisure services make up a total of 8.9% of the total GDP which is relatively high result in north Seleya.

CoS and GI point out that extreme, nationalist political parties tend to undermine or distort the achievements of the Seleyan Union and tend to overuse the claim that it limits the sovereignty of the Member States. Gloria Iustitia points out that no article in the Treaty on the Seleyan Union limits the political might of any Member State and that all 12 Member States can enjoy the same rights within the community and are free to leave the organization. Economists from Gloria Iustitia highlight that in order to sustain the economic growth of the whole region, Member States will have to sit down together and work out additional protocols or declaration which will reform the current union. One of the proposed solutions is an increased level of economic freedom by establishing a pan-seleyan corporate status for companies that are able and are willing to operate on the territory of Seleyan Union and that their services and operations will have transborder character. Gloria Iustitia point out that the Valruzian government have tried to establish such solution back in 4327 with the Seleyan Petroleum Company - the planned company was supposed to have a unique corporate identity and could be the first ever Societas Seleyanea - allowing it to operate on the territory of the whole Seleyan Union and to be the subject to a special procedures in countries it operates. I could be said that currently, companies like Bonning and Reglair are the closest to what the Valruzian Government wanted to implement more than 30 years ago despite they operate as Valruzian corporate entities, and are subject to Valruzian internal taxation. Creation of such ventures could allow for the creation of the Union's budget which could be used for structural programmes for underdeveloped regions in the Seleyan Union and as subsidies for development programmes of the Member States' governments.

Freek Dejonghe disappears from main stage
March 15, 4365

Barely 2 weeks after the elections, President Dejonghe has announced his resignation as LNC Representative and his retirement from politics. LNC has elected a new Representative today.
"I blame myself and no one but myself for this massive defeat during the most recent elections. Few people showed up to vote, but still, LNC hasn't profiled itself good enough during the last 4 years. I have erred, I am to blame. I'm sorry I let you all down and therefore I hope you will accept my resignation as party Representative." President Dejonghe clearly didn't process the loss of his party yet: "NGPoL has proposed a new Cabinet to the Presidium, and I'm sure their proposal will pass. In a few weeks I will no longer be President of the Republic. Probably Patton Deneel will succeed me. I wish him the best of luck."
New Representative of the party will be Loremie Michiels, a 37 year old medical doctor. She was elected by 81% of votes, while her opponent Ian Destaercke only got 16%. She has promised to return to the Nationalist path LNC was on a few decades ago: "President Dejonghe has done a fine job as leader of the nation, but as Representative he allowed LNC to stray towards the political center. We promise our voters Nationalist values, we promise them security, we will give them pride."

'We're on our way to a dark era'
March 27, 4377

Governor of the Province of Andalay Andreij Gorky is warning the federal politicians for a devastating outcome of their recent border security changes. He believes such actions can lead to a period of insecurity and fear and is creating a potential hazard for our national democracy. He is trying to get through to the MP, especially those of his own fraction LNC, but also those of the ruling party NGPoL.
'The law changes that were passed a decade ago already have an impact on our national politics, but I'm afraid that most politicians and even most of the people don't want to see that. Obviously these changes have got some positive effects, but one can not negate that our nation is putting its personality at stake. There has been interference from other nations, which might not seem obvious at first, but I can assure the public that these interferences exist. And that is not the strength of the Lodamun I grew up in,' Andreij states.
He has been talking to the party Representative Mrs. Michiels and asked her to intervene by handing in bills to change these weaknesses. He urges the chairman of NGPoL to do the same: 'NGPoL wouldn't be admitting they were wrong making these changes, but one should act forthe best interest of the nation.'

VALRUZIA PUTS FORWARD THE MULTINATIONAL CORPS PROPOSAL
Nowogard, April 4381

Image
Proposed logo of the Multinational Corps - Seleya North

NOWOGARD - It seems like Nowogard not willing to give up the momentum it gained with Minister's Izabela Vinciguerra bold response to the Hutorian military threats made against Aldegar, now sees it as a perfect opportunity to implement some measures strengthening the Seleyan Union. In a stepped-up process, the Valruzian Ministry for Foreign Affairs has prepared the Convention on the Multinational Corps - Seleya North which would be responsible for protecting the Seleyan Union. Apparently, Valruzia and Lodamun have already come up to an agreement and Lodamun was the first to announce its participation in the project. Basically, what Nowogard is trying to do is to fully implement the Article 7 of the Treaty on Seleyan Union, which says that the Member States will set up a defense force to protect the Union as a whole, to life. With more and more threats to the Seleyan Union, Nowogard wants to establish a collective defense unit which will be able to quickly respond to any threats against Seleyan Union, as well act as a deterrent for its hostiles. Analysts say that the formation will enable the Seleyan Union to influence countries like Likatonia and Saridan which in recent years turned hostile towards the Union. The MC-SN will especially give the Seleyan Union a way to at least try to influence the authorities in Saridan which in recent months have decided to turn Saridan into a rouge-like state with slavery and slave-trade legalized. With numerous reports from Council of Seleya and Gloria Iustitia calling for a quick response to the situation in Saridan, which according to Gloria Iustitia has become the most oppressive state in Seleya, and successively denies Gloria Iustitia and Council of Seleya observers the right to monitor the situation in the country, it is certain that the upcoming months will be deciding whether the Member States will take a larger responsibility on their shoulders.

According to sources connected with the Ministry for Foreign Affairs, the joint committee of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs and Ministry of National Defense has agreed to put Hel as the proposed headquarters for the new organization (under the jurisdiction of the Seleyan Union). Multinational Corps of the Seleyan Union would be responsible for monitoring the international situation and be tasked with rapid response to threats made against the Seleyan Union, as well taking part in different international operations. Vinciguerra believes that the recent crisis between Aldegar and Hutori will push other Members of the Seleyan Union to take part in the process and that Seleyan Union will be finally able to effectively defend itself from external threats. As for the numbers, it is not certain how many soldiers and what sort of equipment will be assigned to the Multinational Corps - Seleya North, but it is certain that it will include all three basic branches of the military force: land forces, air force, and the navy. According to sources connected with MOND, Valruzia is ready to assign as much as 8 thousand soldiers to permanent duty within the Corps. Valruzia puts its hopes to increased cooperation with its neighbors, its largest economic partner - the State of Baltusia, Democratic Republic of Lodamun, Federal Union of Gaduridos and the Democratic Republic of Tukarali. Despite the initial plan to only include Valruzia, Lodamun, Baltusia, and Gaduridos in the Corps, Nowogard has decided that more broad solution is necessary and has decided to invite other states mainly Aldegar and Tukarali.

Professor Walewski warns for future
October 2, 4386

For a mere 20 years NGPoL has achieved to maintain a majority in Presidium, despite the efforts of the other parties in Lodamun. Seems the citizens have confidence in the reigning party. Yet, at least one citizen disagrees. A professor from the National University Lindar Heights has been warning the people of Lodamun, as well as the politicians for the hard times to come.

"I have been watching and studying the political history of the last century the last few months. While collecting data, I noticed that a lot changed during the last two decades." Professor Walewski says: "When a colleague of mine was comparing the data with the economical evolution within our nation, it stunned me how much actually changed during the period NGPoL is leading the nation. And for what it's worth: this will be getting out of hand pretty soon."
Walewski found out that, eventhough the economy was blooming at that time, NGPoL managed to improve the economical figures during the first term in office. The Professor states this is a direct and shortterm effect of the geopolitical reaction to national changes in Lodamun.
"For years all went well in Lodamun, and the future was promising. You can't blame the citizens for supporting the ruling party. Things were better than they'd ever been during the last century. One should note that this was because of the combined effort of both LNC and NGPoL, both in their own way. Also, signing the Alboro Agreement made sure the economy bloomed to almost unknown heights. Unfortunately, that same agreement started the decline of our nation."
The Professor states that because of this agreement, too many things changed too soon. In his opinion, the people of Lodamun were not ready for such a swift change, and neither did the Lodamese economical system.
"The opening of the borders had a direct effect of investors making a rush on the Lodamese renewed market. Luckily the electorate realized there had to be some regulations to protect national investments, and that was about the only political issue LNC and NGPoL agreed on. But too little measures were taken. When the Presidium, or at least the ruling party, decided to even open the borders more and giving slack on the regulations concerning citizenship and rights of foreigners, all was lost. In 4380, LNC realized something had to be done. They demanded the withdrawal from the Alboro Agreement, but they didn't get enough support in Presidium. To make matters worse, legislators decided to band themselves even more while signing a treaty to support a Multinational Military Corps. This will be the drop."
Walewski hopes legislators will react to avoid an economical disaster, or worse.
