Senator Paulina Perot nominated to be Prime Minister of Alinn
Augusta Lancet — The Alinnian Herald
For the second time in the nation’s history, the Prime Minister is a female. President Haines-Korbin announced that she accepted Prime Minister Bortreau’s resignation early Wednesday morning and nominated Paulina Perot, the Senior Senator from the district of Rivers’ Bend, to fill his position as Acting Prime Minister.
“Senator Perot has excelled in her position as the senator from Rivers’ Bend, so it is only fitting that I nominate her to serve as my left-hand woman on our path to move this nation forward,” President Haines-Korbin spoke quite passionately about Perot, one of the fiercest conservative voices in the Sentinel. Yet rising dissent to her tenure in office within her home district was evident in pre-polling, as her competitor Melissa McVenter currently trails her by a meek 3% in the polls.
Considering Senator Perot was running for re-election, what does this mean for her campaign? Under the Alinn City Accord, President Haines-Korbin has a maximum of two weeks to send Perot’s credentials and security clearance information to the Sentinel for her confirmation. Given that the election is only three days away, it is unlikely Korbin will look to confirm her before then. If the president loses re-election, Senator Perot will still have a chance at remaining the senator from her district. Under election laws set by the ACA, political parties are prohibited from changing their nominee for the upcoming election if the election is less than 14 days away.
Many political analysts view this as a chance for Korbin to bolster her conservative backing across the country as polls show Sindevir now leads her in key swing districts. While the economy is well on the road to recovery, opponents of the administration say many Alinnians are still “left in the dark without any guidance as to where to begin to rebuild”, Sindevir stated at a rally in Nyleno last night. The same political analysts also comment that this is one of the closest matchups this country has ever seen, and that no one can begin to predict the end result. “Earlier on in the campaign season, it was surprisingly easier to predict where voters’ minds were. Yet as the campaign season continued and the administration faced more issues, it threw the entire outcome of the election into uncertainty. It’s quite mind boggling,” commented Alendri Maksma, a Political Science professor at Alinn City University. “The great thing about it is that we’re going to see awesome turnout for this election, and essentially, that’s what it is all about. Democracy is clearly working.”
With the election three days away, one thing is certain: we have absolutely no idea who the President of Alinn will be on August 2nd.
I presume the other nations listed are like diaspora //immigration?

Anyone know what's happening with the Discord? Most of the channels aren't showing up.
The server is fine for me. I just saw that you have the 'CTEd' role in the Discord server, could that have anything to do with it?
I accidiently shut down my space program :/
Damn. How're you gonna defend against the aliens now?
The nation you verified with moosebot CTEd so I think you would need to verify with your current nation
The map process is too hard imo.
How's it hard? You just have to opt in on the WFE.
It could be easier.

National Primary Finishes With Surprising Results
By Loren Delaro
Results have come in from Alvero's nationwide primary, with a couple interesting and tight races.
First let's talk about the unsurprising. Adela Gallego has secured her party's nomination for a third term as leader of the Labor party. Gallego faced little competition with the only challenger being controversial figure Pascal Velares getting only 13% of the vote. Gallego campaigned on a platform of expanding the Gravian Prosperity Program, a universal basic income program trialed province wide in Gravia, nationwide. She also campaigned on reforming the healthcare system with her proposed Accessible Healthcare Act which seeks to nationalize hospitals and clinics nationwide and set a ten year goal to build accessible hospitals and clinics in the neglected rural regions of Alvero where the nearest hospital can be as far as two hours away.
Rupert Howard, current leader of the Conservative Party, faced a tough re-election with two major contenders challenging him for the party's leadership role. Eduard Celaro had been neck and neck with Howard in recent polls, with both polling 34%. But in a surprise upset, Roman Numos squeaked a narrow win of the party's nomination when he was polling at 22%. Numos, a former member of the Alvero First party, ran a populist campaign with a platform of curbing immigration, protectionism, and requiring term limits.
Eduard Galenz of the Liberal Party, a member of the party's social liberal faction, was challenged by Anton Bruno, a member of the party's Libertarian faction. Galenz won a narrow victory with his focus on building a new free trade agreement in the Gervase Bay region, and expanding low interest loans to private college for students below the poverty line.
Stella Carrero faced no serious challengers and won her re-election as leader of the Green Party with ease. The focus of her campaign was her People's Energy Act, which seeks to nationalize Alvero's energy infrastructure as well as the oil and coal production, with the goal of transitioning to 100% clean energy by 2032.
Richard Johnson of the Alvero First party, who repeatedly called for criminalizing Alvero's sex work industry and denounced homosexuality as being "degenerate", had declined to seek re-election after being caught soliciting prostitution from a male "catboy" sex worker, sending a shockwave through the party's socially conservative members. Vincent Alaro and Albin Septarus faced off in a tight race with Alaro winning by a four point margin. Alaro ran on curbing immigration by reducing work visas and deporting any immigrant convicted of any crime, and building a new border security agency.
Juan Vincente of the Communist party had faced a challenge from Ella Singh, but narrowly came out ahead. Vincent campaigned on the abolition of private property and ending Alvero imperialism abroad.
The election will be held on December 3rd.
