IC - Rio Cana military today had military exercises on the Atlantic about 10 km. from the Rio-Aurea border. The exercises were considered a success.
Official government video of the military exercise (remember use your imagination its Rio)-
OH YEAH BABY
NATION OF THE NATIONS
THE BEST INNOFENSIVE CENTRIST DEMOCRACY OUT OF ALL THE INNOFENSIVE CENTRIST DEMOCRACY
No word on Aurea on the military exercises we held 10 KM. from there border.
Prime Minister Marco Basurto issued a statement saying that the Imperial Aurean Navy closely monitored the Rio Cana military exercise and that there are concerns. Specifically, the prime minister said that the number of units involved was much higher than had initially been reported by Rio Cana and that, along with previous ground operations near the border, it seems that Rio Cana is preparing an invasion force.
The ambassador of Rio Cana was summoned to the Office of the Prime Minister to explain the actions of his nation and there Sr. Basurto said that the aggression and provocation against his nation will not be tolerated. The prime minister ended saying he will speak with international partners later today.
OOC: stay safe Rio! It is so painful to see what has happened in the Caribbean islands! I hope the islands can recover and that their corrupt governments don't steal the aid or use it as electoral bribes.
Also ooc: Brazil's president is involved in MORE corruption investigations. The monarchy was never so corrupt....
BREAKING NEWS — President Elena Cazador announces she will not seek a third term.
Speaking at her party's pre-election convention in Cartagena, President Cazador has said she will not be seeking the presidential nomination for the right-wing, conservative Frente Nacional (National Front) in the January 2018 presidential election. Presidential primaries are set to take place next month to decide the various party nominees for the presidency. It's thought Mrs Cazador made the announcement on the back of continued low approval numbers; the latest showing her approval being at only 25%.
Cazador has served as Tayrona's first female president since 2010 having previously served as first female Vice President from 2006 to 2010. She was the hand-picked successor of César Valerio—affectionately known in Tayrona as "El Libertador"—who overthrew the communist dictatorship of Felipe Macías in 1989 and served as President of Tayrona from 1990 to 2010. The Frente Nacional has held control of both houses of the National Congress since the restoration of democracy in 1990.
The announcement will no doubt energise opposition parties, most notably the centrist, social-democratic Estado Nuevo (New State) party.
First really competitive election in decades for Tayrona then. Interesting times.
Coalition deal keeps Engel in power
NIEWEBAACH — Chancellor Wëllem Engel will remain in office after successfully renegotiating the center-right coalition he first struck four years ago. The National Assembly will now meet Monday to confirm his position via a vote of confidence.
Engel's liberal-conservative The Conservatives will continue to work alongside the right-wing populist People's Party in the Cabinet, with support in the National Assembly from the Country Alliance and the Christian Democratic Party.
The election on September 12 saw the governing partners—The Conservatives and People's Party—each lose a seat. Despite this, the right-wing coalition they head in the National Assembly gained one seat overall due to the Country Alliance doubling its seat share.
Despite a promising start to the campaign, the Labor Party lost seats and votes mainly to its smaller far-left partners the Party of the Left which gained the 2 seats Labor lost. As a whole, the left-wing electoral alliance lost one seat.
The full results:
Party (vote%) — #seats (+/-)
Labor Party (27.4%) — 22 (-2)
The Conservatives (25.0%) — 20 (-1)
People's Party (15.2%) — 12 (-1)
Country Alliance (10.3%) — 8 (+4)
Party of the Left (6.0%) — 5 (+2)
Liberal Party (4.4%) — 3 (-1)
Christian Democrats — 3 (-1)
Green Party (3.2%) — 2 (±0)
Right-wing Alliance — 43 (+1)
Left-wing Alliance — 32 (-1)
Prime Minister Charlotte Alban has called Chancellor Wëllem Engel and congratulated him on his return to office and said she looks forward to working with him in future.
