I would also like to point out that Sepharich is no longer MoC due to their having left the region (their puppet Paragero would have to be appointed for the same person to be MoC).
Also, I must also remind the Union that, though Junastria has been refounded, they are still not in their functions as MoD - especially since they aren't a resident of the Union.
IMPORTANT - Writ regulating a General Election

Founder of Our Region
I thank the Prime Minister and the King of Arms for this unexpected honour. It has always been a pleasure serving the Members of the Union in various capacities in both elected and appointed positions. I thank the Union for allowing me to serve, and for this noble distinction.
I must ask the King of Arms, however, how I should now stylize my title?
I am pleased to report to the Members of the Union that the Government is beginning to execute the New Recruitment Initiative (NRI). We are officially taking steps to remedy the inactivity situation, beginning with the formation of the the Recruitment Task Force.
I think that the bestowal of this honour is only right; you two have dedicated a lot to this Region, and that ought to be recognized. Your style comes in various forms. The most formal is that of "The Right Honourable The Baron Libertarian Democracy", though "Lord Libertarian Democracy" is right too. In parliamentary proceedings, you are to be styled as follows: 'I thank my Noble Friend/The Noble Lord, Lord X'.
If you want, I can edit your name on the forum in order to assume a more... political neutral name ;) I will then also add the word "Lord" to the name. Of course, the same goes also for Abdoa.

---Official Message from the Speaker of Parliament---
It is my unfortunate responsibility to inform you all of less welcome news this Christmas. Parliament has begun proceedings to impeach President Nassau-Windsor. They have opened the matter for you all to comment and express your thoughts and opinions.
Please do so here: http://parliamentaryunion.forumotion.org/t634-proposed-impeachment-of-president-nassau-windsor-public-discussion-thread
The Right Honourable Minister of Jurisprudence Lord Libertarian Democracy, RO MP LSM GSM
Speaker pro Tempore of Parliament
Attention all! The Recruitment Taskfoce is conducting a survey about recruitment strategies and demographics in the Union, so please all go and respond to this short poll:
Your participation is warmly thanked in advance!
-The Recruitment Taskforce
I would like to inquire informally on the state of affairs concerning the election of the 14th Parliament - the current legislature is due to be dissolved soon and we need a replacement.
I can tell the Noble Lord Abdoa, as well as all others whom it concerns, that apart from my own, I have received not a single electoral notification as of yet. Therefore, I do, by this message, extend the period for such notifications until the first day of January, next.
I must dispute this statement by my Rt. Hon. friend. Six days ago I, on behalf of my party, the Classical Liberal Party, submitted our electoral list. The telegram is indeed in my sent items folder.
Could you send it again? Perhaps it was a technical error...
Happy new year everyone!
Best of wishes to all of you for 2018.
Since the 13th Parliament is now due to be dissolved from regular business (though we still need to continue voting on the impeachment of President Nassau-Windsor here: http://parliamentaryunion.forumotion.org/t635-president-nassau-windsor-impeachment-vote), I would like to inquire as to why a replacement Parliament has not been duly elected and announced.
IMPORTANT - New Session of Parliament
After the call for a new Session of Parliament to be formed, two electoral notifications were received. The first being that of the Noble Lord, Lord Libertarian Democracy, for himself and other members of the Classical Liberal Party. The second was that of myself.
Thus, a total of four Candidates were forwarded. As there are sufficient Seats in Parliament, there is no need for a division.
Therefore, the following Members of Our Region will be Members of Parliament during this Session instant until the next:
The Noble Lord, Lord Libertarian Democracy GSM LSM MP - Classical Liberal Party
The Noble Lord, Lord Abdoa GSM LSM MP - Classical Liberal Party
The Right Honourable Nassau-Windsor LSM MP - Independent
The Right Honourable Hashkin LSM - Classical Liberal Party
Members of the Union! I implore of you.
If you can spare even only five to ten minutes each day, please join us in Parliament! Otherwise, we are currently paralyzed, and cannot pass any laws.
If you are interested, please send a telegram to our Founder, Nassau-Windsor, who will announce you automatically elected so long as there are still seats available in Parliament (and since there are 5 vacant right now, I doubt there will be any shortage of space).
Best of wishes for the New Year to you all!
