Midori Ten Days First Stage Ends in Massive Sprint

Nanako's flagship cycling race started today to great fanfare. The first stage between Narakonai and Hashikoshi, 227 kilometres with several middle mountain difficulties, had the profile of a sprint stage. And indeed, the peloton broke away in the last few hundred meters from the finish in the boulevards of Hashikoshi, at the old port. All forty-five riders sprinted hard for the first stage victory and to open the points. It was eventually Komatsu Thoki, the Nihonese sprinter, who took the blue and white jersey at the photo finish. Hiramia-Omfew leader Alexander Paulson came in second on Komatsu's wheel, closely followed by Nanako rider Nitta Ayumu. The three riders arrived literally in a neck and neck with a time of 4 hours 42 minutes and 31 seconds, the difference being measured in milliseconds.

In the mountain rankings, the stage could only provide 21 points, the highest mark of the stage being 507 metres. Jack Shimano, leader of Nanako's team is for the moment the red jersey with 10 points in the mountain championship, followed by the British rider Richard Parker, then the Angladian Luc Martin.

Tomorrow's stage will be much more competitive, with the finish at the mythical Redberry Gap at an altitude of more than 2,000 meters, without forgetting a succession of two passes at more than 1,000 meters. The stage has a positive difference in altitude of nearly 4,000 meters, with a start at sea level. At the moment, the Nihonese team leads the ranking with 26 points. But the arrival of the mountain stages tomorrow could be a problem for the team that seems to have worn out its riders, less specialized in the mountains, in this sprint stage that was nevertheless very hilly.

Midori Ten Days Cycling Race 2022, Men's, is an international cycling stage race held annually in Nanako. It is renowned for its difficulty, often confronting participants with rigorous and extremely difficult mountain stages and climbs. Uniquely, Midori Ten, as it is often nicknamed, is not part of the professional cycling circuit as the teams competing are national ones. It is thus often compared to a sort of cross-country stage cycling world championship. Midori Ten is named after the infamous Midori Pass, the tour's traditional finish line for the final stage, at 1,187 meters. The tour is 9 stages long and is interrupted by a one-day stamina break whose position during the ten days varies from year to year.

The Race is still ongoing!

Read dispatch

The Hiramian forces were now ready for the Battle of Bangkok, as there have been formal preparations for the attack of the city for a while and the army was preparing for the attack for a while now, though the Thai army took the first steps themselves and attempted an attack via Kritsada Nakhon village.

The attack on Kritsada Nakhon village was two-fold and comprised of the 2nd Infantry Division (it and the 1st Army Division were the ones securing the Bangkok area) splitting in half. Hiramian forces had control of the towns of Thawi Watthana, Sala Thammasop and, to the further northeast, Taling Chan. The plan began on the 25th of July. One half would attempt an attack via the Bangkok Thonburi University, where they were met by military police.

The attack of the Bangkok Thonburi University would be a success for Thai forces, allowing them to head towards Mahidol University in the west, currently headquarters of the attacking 2nd Malay Division of Hiramia-Okfew, comprising of at least 5,000 soldiers.

On midnight of the 26th, Hiramian forces from the 2nd Malay Division (of at least 1,000 soldiers) attempted to raid the Thonburi University via rocket launchers and humvees - this was unsuccessful after a good defense from the Thai army. A call for artillery and air raids towards the university was called, though for now the soldiers from Hiramia would have to retreat towards Mahidol University to form a defensive line between it and the village of Sala Thammasop with the help of the road Phutthamonthon Sai 4 and the Phutthamonthon Park. Casualties were minimum on the Thai side and major on the Hiramian side, at least 100 were dead with another 130 wounded.

Later the same day, around noon, an attack with the 3rd Malay Division of 3,000 soldiers was undertaken from the town of Om Noi towards Bangkhae via the Petchkasem Road, a large roadway towards the interior of Bangkok itself - capture of Bangkhae would also allow Hiramian soldiers to use the Bangkok Metro to penetrate the city itself - there would be numerous Thai soldiers (including an armored infantry division). The Hiramian Air Force would send some small air fighter and bomber units to bombard the road system and generally harass the Thai forces.

Fighting in that area started with an assault towards Puttha Sakhom Road, a large elevated roadway. The roadway was bombed by air units from the Hiramian air force from 3pm on the same day with general attack from 4:30pm. The attack was brutal - both sides claimed massive casualties, though the Thai retreated towards the road Phet Kasem 116, the Hiramians managing to secure buildings along the way.

The fighting generally ceased for the next few hours until, around 9:30pm that night, a group of 100 Hiramian forces went south via Muban Kansa Alley - close to the Bangkok Metropolitan Land Office government building for the area. The Hiramians took the building with ease and went south towards the Phet Kasem 81 road, allowing them to bypass the Thai forces. Approaching the end of that road were a small group of a similar amount of Thai forces. Fighting commenced and the Hiramians won, capturing 40 Thai personnel and sending 35 Hiramian soldiers to march the POWs to a hastily organized POW camp near the Thai Merry Company Limited building along the AH2 highway. However, the remaining Hiramians marching along Phet Kasem 81 Road realized they were in too deep and mapped out the area, marching back towards their side.

Back to the 2nd Malay Division which were in the Phuttamonthon Park area. The park became the new headquarters for that division - Thai artillery forces bombarded the park around 11pm the same night towards late in the morning of the 27th, where an attack commenced. Thai Air Force units assisted in the assault and the Hiramian Air Force was unable to beat them back - the 2nd Malay would have to retreat from the Phutthamonthon Park towards the Tha Chin River.

The 3rd Malays, on the other hand on the 27th, begun an attack from Phet Kasem 81 Road with their 2,500 men - easily able to march through the road towards it's end, they split so that one would go north and one would go south.

The 1,250 who went towards the south went towards the end of the street towards Macharoen 1 Yaek Road before turning left and crossing the Mana Son River, heading towards the end of the road leading them to march towards the marches and farmland towards the Wat Udomrangsi School towards the Nong Khaem District Office.

The 1,250 who went north decided to hold position and secure the houses around them, checking for anyone inside. Not many people were left - those rumors about the Hiramians still using certain tactics still were popular around the area and many fled towards Bangkok itself, excluding a few partisans. However, the area was secure. Let's leave them for now.

The Hiramian Air Force sent two fighter squadrons towards the general area where the 2nd Malays had been chased about, beginning runs to attack the Thai Air Force who were in the area. With the larger firepower the Thai Air Force lost a couple of planes and the rest of them retreated. This helped the 2nd Malays to head back to the Park, and the fighter squadrons begun to mercilessly attack the Thonburi University. It was here that many Thai soldiers were killed and the area was taken shortly thereafter. The Air Force had also decided to commence general bombing runs of the area past the local highway 9 - the area past the highway would lead to Bangkok itself. Bombing runs would commence to this day, generally towards military, civilian and police targets, though some bombs did end up in houses.

To the east now with more better news. The Hiramians were in Samut Prakan and were closing in on the city with the help of the local metro's Green Line which ran towards the center of the city. Thai forces had essentially abandoned the area towards a final defensive line from the Green Line towards the Chalong Rat Expressway - however there was major resistence at Suvarnabhumi Airport which served the city. The airport was bombed many times, the soldiers there fought well but the Thai were able to keep the airport. This had been going on for a while even with the help of drones. The airport would continue to be bombed to pieces, only surrendering on the 1st of August and capturing thousands of Thai soldiers and civilians. The airport wouldn't be used by the Hiramians as there was too much damage to the airport and the surrounding area. The Navy would dispatch their LHDs to attack southern Bangkok and ferry troops into the area.

In other news, the countryside was further being taken by Hiramian and allied forces - in fact, the two sides met in the province of Chaiyaphum, with Hiramian and allied forces securing the area and the south and north of the country.

The rebel held area in the Mae Wa National Park would be bombarded by bombing runs in the national park itself, Hiramian forces also closing in on the park. The park has still not been secured entirely, though the Hiramians have made leeway from all sides.

By this point the Thai forces were getting more desperate, continuing to launch missiles towards the Malay peninsula. Air defences in the area with anti-missile rockets and Air Force support continued to provide help - though a missile did hit Pajahwrsk's suburbs which triggered an air raid warning for the city itself. 5 people died with another 40 injured, and civil defence provided help to the area. In response, missiles would be launched towards the Grand Palace in Bangkok's downtown area. Air defences in Bangkok shot down most of the missiles bar two, one hitting the building of the Bureau of the Royal Household and another hitting the Piman Rattaya Throne Hall, causing some damage to both buildings.

Finally, Hiramian forces in the north of Bangkok continued to slowly weave towards Bangkok, approaching the city metro's Red Line just today north of Wiphawan Village. This line can be used to approach the Purple Line which connected towards a circular Blue Line service surrounding the city's interior. Thai soldiers had, however, blown up part of the Red Line near Sripatum University, which would be a problem.

Note that while I may post this on the 2nd of August, some information may include times from the day afterwards. This is due to Bangkok being generally 13 hours behind the United States, where I live, and thus it is the 3rd of August over there.

Not many people were left - those rumors about the Hiramians still using certain tactics still were popular around the area and many fled towards Bangkok itself, excluding a few partisans. However, the area was secure. Let's leave them for now.

The march to the Nong Khaem District Office was successful and the building was taken with ease - this allowed the Hiramians to ransack and take the building for themselves. However with that came many Thai soldiers who attempted to take the office back.

The office was invaded from the north by 500 Thai soldiers and soon half of the 1,250 Hiramians sent to the office would be sent to defeat the Thai soldiers. The Hiramians were able to beat them back, but the building would be constantly bombarded and the Hiramians would have to evacuate from the building before it collapsed shortly thereafter. The area was, though, secured and the 1,250 assigned to the area would move to take the surrounding stores and the like, bar the northern AH2 road from where the attack on the District Office would come from.

The 1,250 from the north would begin to charge towards the AH2 road, finding it abandoned - many of the troops spotted earlier had to retreat to attack the District Office. The AH2 behind them was thus secured by the Hiramian forces and it was decided to march further.

On the other side in Bang Khae, at least 25,000 soldiers would be trained in urban warfare as most of them were partisans and recruits - they would have control of various villages south of Bang Khae. Hiramian intelligence informed the higher ups that there were many thousands of soldiers massing in Bang Khae, thus it was decided on the 28th to send 40,000 Hiramian soldiers to the area - comprised of the 3rd Malays, 4th Malays, several National Guards units and the 2nd Java Division of 15,000 soldiers. These units would be sent to Om Noi and by the 31st most of them were assembled in the area.

By the 31st it was calm as both sides were gathering soldiers for the Battle of Bang Khae.

On the 31st, Thai soldiers of 25,000 strong would begin an attack from the south (Santisuk and Kanniwet Villages) towards Cowboy Village and Sirikhet 1 Village. The call came for Hiramian soldiers to respond and, by noon, both sides had invested most of their alloted soldiers at Suphawan 4 Village, southeast of Cowboy Village. Both sides fought each other hard and fierce, the Thai gaining more casualties due to most of them being unale to train in time.

At midnight on the 1st of August the Hiramians were able to push towards the Manee Wattana School, securing a hospital. Artillery would continue to fire past the school from the Hiramian side, and from the Thai side artillery would continue to fire towards the hospital and past it. The hospital was lost.

Slowly, the Hiramians would push towards the AH1 in the northeast, pushing past the school by 6am and bombing the area past the school. The Thai would take thousands of casualties - the Hiramians too, but they had more men and supplies. Some Thai partisans tried to use shock tactics, rushing towards the Hiramian line before running back, though this failed after a while. Both sides resorted to destroying nearby buildings, causing massive devastation at Kanniwet Village. At the end of the 1st, however, the Hiramians had secured the village and were heading straight for Bang Khae (not too far now).

The 34,000 remaining soldiers would secure the area, some troops heading for the southern Bang Khae Phirom Park.

Meanwhile in the North, many Thai soldiers would retreat to help their brothers in the Bang Khae battle and the northern Hiramians were able to march as far as the Thonburi 2 Hospital. There were few soldiers defending Taling Chan and on the 2nd the Hiramians attacked that village, taking it shortly thereafter - though east of the Taling Chan Floating Market was thousands upon thousands of soldiers, for they were very close to the final defensive line of Bangkok, comprised of the Bangkok MRT Blue Line's circular portion.

Both the Hiramians in the north and the south would march towards Bang Khae, surrounding it on most sides. On the 2nd the village was bombarded heavily, the Thai trying to fight hard - however by midnight on the 3rd they have had to surrender the village, and with that came the thousands of prisoners. Not many soldiers were left in Bang Wa and Phasi Charoen, the two villages between Bang Khae and the MRT Blue Line circular portion, though there were more soldiers in the south defending Asiatique the Riverfront and the southern portions of the city west of the MRT Green Line.

It is now 8:22 AM in Bangkok, Thailand, and by now the Thai soldiers, now totalling around 150,000 were inside the Blue Line's circular path and preparing for a final stand. Hiramian forces, from midnight, began to continuously bomb buildings inside the path and though they have been beat back by anti-air defenses, they have had more success. By this time the rest of the countryside lay mostly abandoned which gave Hiramia-Okfew and Indochina free rein to take the rest of the country, which will take some time.

Hiramian and allied soldiers now surrounded downtown Bangkok - defined as the area inside the MRT Blue Line's circular portion. By this point the city was essentially destroyed, and especially the downtown area - despite the best efforts of Thai anti-air machinery and the remaining Thai Air Force, the interior of the circular was mostly ruin - with some small exceptions.

By the 4th, the encirclement was finished and, after an attempt by a few Thai soldiers to charge the Hiramian line at Khlong Toei (southeast of the Victory Monument) failed, there were some discussions at a potential surrender as a few people on both sides were allowed to leave the circular to meet at the Ramkhamhaeng University, where General Mohammed bin Salem (who commanded the eastern portion of the Hiramian forces surrounding Bangkok) negotiated with high ranking Thai generals.

Inside a bunker somewhere in the circular stood the leader of Thailand (General Baveethran Chuthathep), who was preparing for a final stand somewhere in the east towards Huai Khwang. He had ordered the Rama VIII Bridge, the Krung Thon Bridge and other bridges at the Chao Phraya River to be destroyed - this was done only in the Krung Thon Bridge. Morale in the Thai side was essentially gone and, by the start of the 5th, many Thai units begun to surrender.

By the evening of the 5th, about 75,000 Thai soldiers were left, mostly behind the Victory Monument and the Don Muang Toll Way. Hiramian planes flying over the city no longer carried bombs of explosives, but obmbs of paper - they dropped leaflets all over the circular calling on the Thai people and armed forces to surrender.

The area west of the Chao Phraya River, after the destruction of one of the bridges, was abandoned for the most part - most soldiers there had either surrendered or made their way via the Rama VIII Bridge east of the river. Some equipment, including a handful of tanks, were left behind. The Hiramians moved in towards the Chao Phraya River from 9:30pm on the 5th, being able to take the area by midnight of the 6th bar a few holdouts surrounding the Rama VIII Bridge, who were able to retreat past the river by midnight.

However, there were reports of some Thai soldiers attacking the Royal Thai Army Headquarters from 1am, where the leader was reportedly staying. Carrying various flags and weapons, they attacked the headquarters and were able to breach the interior. The leader was informed of this action and was evacuated towards the Wat Benchamabophit Dusitwanaram - an opulent marble temple.

They had rushed out of the bunker, and Chuthathep only had his advisors and a few guards. One of the guards, a loyal guard turned dissident who wanted the leader to stay behind and lead the final advance, decided to act on his own. He aimed a pistol at Chuthathep, firing three times before the guard was subdued and killed by another guard.

Chuthathep, however, was shot twice in the stomach and once in the neck. They turned towards Vajira Hospital in the northwest. He was still alive as the group entered the operating room, but despite the best efforts of doctors he passed away at 2:30 the morning of the 6th.

In the rush many documents were left behind - including various army plans and a plan for surprise missile attacks towards Hiramia-Okfew planned towards the start of August, but that wasn't what mattered. General Chuthathep was gone, and this news spread easily. Those who stormed the headquarters cheered and begun to attack other government buildings in Bangkok to attempt to kill other government and army leaders.

The Hiramians received word of rumors that the Thai leader was dead - they didn't know if this was true but decided to spread word over loudspeakers and social media services that this was true and that Chuthathep had died.

The Thai soldiers, at this point, begun to surrender en masse to Hiramian forces - the circular from the east was breached and encountered resistence with many Thai soldiers going to the Hiramians with white flags - though there was some actual resistence inside the Wat Phra Chetuphon temple which is still continuing. However, for all intents and purposes, the Thai War was over... for now, anyway - now was a time to celebrate and, for that, the Hiramians and Okfewians were planning a bit of a big parade.

Hiramia-Omfew wrote:[...]though there was some actual resistence inside the Wat Phra Chetuphon temple which is still continuing.

At least 1,000 Thai soldiers were held up in the Wat Phra Chetuphon temple and the general area surrounded by the Thai Wang Alley, Maha Rat Road, and Chetuphon and Sanan Chai Roads. They were surrounded by way more than a thousand Hiramians and Okfewians who, by 4am had set up positions around the area, especially from the Saranrom Palace Park im the northeast.

An assault begun at 4:30am from said northeast, where the Hiramians made ground - this was followed by a general assault where, by 5:45am the temple complex itself was surrounded. The temple was sieged two times before 7am, one attempt at a siege from the west resulted in failure and the deaths of 45 Hiramia-Okfew soldiers and 30 Thai, and another attempt from the south resulted in 80 Hiramia-Okfew soldiers and 50 Thai dead. Let's leave them for now.

In the rest of the damaged city preparations for a massive victory parade was already underway - building damage begun to be cleared and hospitals begun to be checked and repaired for damage. They would be run by military administration for now, and all hospital ships owned by Hiramia-Okfew's navy would be ordered to Bangkok and Pattaya to assist local medics.

Now that Thailand was defeated for the most part, attention turned to occupation and rebuilding - for the Hiramia-Okfew side it was decided to install Hiramian occupation headquarters at the State Tower (though subject to negotiation) and garrison a large amount of soldiers at the former Royal Thai Army Headquarters. More information about occupation would have to be agreed by Hiramia-Okfew and Indochina, including if the monarchy would remain or not.

Back to the attack on the Wat Phra Chetuphon, where at 6am it was decided to fire artillery shells - though not at the complex, towards the river, to intimidate the defenders to surrender. This begun at once though the defenders continued to hold their ground, even beginning an assault upon the Hiramian line at 6:50am from the east. The Hiramians feigned a retreat, moving east to the Sanam Chai Road towards the Territorial Defence Command - though when at least 400 Thai were chasing the Hiramians, the Hiramians closed the line and surrounded the 400, beginning to attack them. The 400 would hold off until the last of them died, the Hiramians then beginning to move from all directions towards the compound itself as a result.

This time, the remaining soldiers would slowly retreat towards the centre, losing more and more of their defences so that, by 8am, they had decided to surrender. With this came the end of the Thai War de jure.

It is now 10am in Bangkok and while the Wat Phra Chetuphon sustained medium amounts of damage, the damage could be dealt with. Those who surrendered were taken to the Territorial Defense Command building, now a makeshift prison, where they were secured.

Hiramian forces would continue to secure the countryside, now more speedily, alongside their Indochinese allies in the east. The focus was again on reconstruction and supplies would begin to be sent towards reconstructing the country and feeding the people. The Hiramian Navy was given the order by President Jakobus von Slooten to make sure the blockade would remain and to continue to inspect ships headed for Thailand, though some of its' ships would have to retreat home.

Meanwhile in the heavily damaged Saranrom Palace, the building was ordered to be rebuilt immediately. This area was heavily guarded by Hiramian forces, though this wasn't requisitoned for government or military purposes. The Head of the Army's Department of Signal Intelligence, General Suhendra Raja Tedjo, would arrive at 9am in the area to communicate with local officers and a small group of special forces, including plans to install and take over surveillance equipment towards the occupation.

The news of victory came in an address not too long ago - at 11am Hiramian time in fact, where President van Slooten addressed the country to declare that hostilities would cease in Thailand and that the focus would be on "...rebuilding a brother country from a devastating and unfortunate war." Celebrations around the country, though mostly in the Malay peninsula and Pajahwrsk, would've already begun a day earlier though with reports of Thai soldiers surrendering en masse.

Finally, the reservists, including the 400,000 who had been called up due to the tension before the war, would be told that after celebrations had passed they would generally be released from active military service - though it was ordered that at least 200,000 soldiers would remain in Thailand to rebuild.

van Slooten had ordered also that, at least for the Hiramian side, rebuliding efforts would be done in order to grow the Thai economy, make it somewhat dependent on Pajahwrsk and Saigon, and to demiltarize and democratize the country. The Parliament of Hiramia-Okfew, therefore, passed a law on the 3rd that set up the National Reconstruction Board, under the control of the Ministry of Finance, in order to deal with war reparations and set up an economic reconstruction plan (this would be headed by General of the Army Mikosan Pavlolych and Deputy Minister of Finance Saribad Milansen) for such a reconstruction.

Actuality in Clarkstan|August 2022

The day that was expected for seven months, which is when the parliamentary investigation, the public report of the chief prosecutor and the review of his work in connection with the tragedy on the Anderson bridge that happened in January, will connect on Monday, August 8.Due to the excessive importance of the tragedy in which many people died and the emphasis on solving the case as soon as possible, the strongest party is facing a big challenge.Most of the analysts, even those on the left, believe that the People's Republican Party has no involvement in that case. While the liberal ones believe that if their responsibility is proven, the government of Vyaceslav Kanaev should resign.
If hypothetically such a thing were to be justified, the ruling party would experience a big drop in ratings and a big reputation that it built with its actions during its rise to power in 2000, when the fight against organized crime was announced and successfully implemented.The government should definitely resign then because there would be a wave of protests and new parliamentary elections would undoubtedly be called.The leader of the People's Republican Party-Christian Democrats, Emily McLayde, said that she would be the first to leave the position of leader and before that she would demand the resignation of the government if it turns out to be like that. But she also emphasized that she is convinced that no one from the party is behind the tragedy.
Everything will start with the public hearing of the supreme prosecutor in the parliament on Monday and end with the parliamentary investigation. If everything goes without complications, the epilogue is expected at the end of October and the beginning of November.
______________________

The radical right-wing parliamentary coalition, the Patriotic List, unites into one party called the Right Alternative party.According to analysts, this shows that the right is more united than ever, which is not the case with the left, which is divided on many issues.The right has been the leading ideology in Clarkstan for 22 years. Former President Gavrić was considered the leader of the ideology for many years, and now Prime Minister Kanev has succeeded him.Also, the newly formed party will continue to be the main supporter of the current government.

___________________________

After the recent visit of a press team to the government, a picture of the current prime minister was taken at his working desk, behind him was the Clarkstan map, which included all of Sybira under state control.Until recently, the same folder was also in the presidential palace while Gavrić was in office, and it is still present in the headquarters of the People's Republican Party - Christian Democrats.

Recently, in a TV show, the member of the ruling party in the federal parliament, Edward Harrison, said the following:Whatever the name of the people who live there, they are Clarkstanian but apostates. The territory of Sybira is historically Clarkstan and the communists are to blame for the fact that it is independent. Its integration into Clarkstan's universe should be a long-term goal.

The leftists have an answer to that, they agree with the statements that it is Clarkstan territory, but its possible annexation would be harmful, columnist Kate Lanshet analyzed two scenarios of the annexation of Sybir.

1. Military: Clarkstan would have been exhausted, that war would have lasted a decade. Victory would have been likely, but the average Clarkstanian would have felt it painfully because his standard of living would have been affected.There is a high probability that Clarkstan would end up in a recession in the worse than it was in the 90s.
2. Joining by the free decision of the citizens of Sybir, least likely, easy but very difficult. In this case, institutions and the economy would voluntarily accept Clarkstanian economic legislation. But there would appear an economic division into the rich West and the poor East. Internal immigration would be without any doubt.There would be a possibility of conflict due to the decline in the standard of living of the western part of Clarkstan.

In the conclusion, it is stated that the annexation of Sybir is a difficult mission, because it is similar to the annexation of a larger but poorer part that should get back on its feet.

Liberals believe that the issue of Sybir is a case that has long been resolved, according to them, it is an independent state.

Voting age to permanently be lowered to 16 years

    CARDIFF -- During the 2015 general election, Moderates leader and eventual Prime Minister Léo Trudeau made lowering the voting age to 16 for all elections and referendum questions a key part of his strategy to win Angladen's younger voter bloc. This worked--the Moderates won over young voters and toppled the incumbent Conservative government. After forming government, the Moderates pushed forward a law to create a 10-year trial period in lowering the voting age to 16 with the foundation to codify that trial period into a permanent age minimum embedded within said law. 16 year-olds were enfranchised first in the 2016 local/provincial elections.

    4 elections later (5, after this year's local/provincial elections), SDP Prime Minister Kristina Moulin has announced that the government will codify the lowered voting age permanently. While the trial period for the lowered voting age does not expire until 2025, the Social Democrats are attempting to galvanize Angladen's youth who are forming an increasing segment of the electorate into participating in the upcoming elections and to win votes in key races. A spokesperson for 10 Chester, the Prime Minister's official residence and workplace, said "the Prime Minister is working expeditiously to make the enfranchisement of our country's future a right rather than a privilege."

    Leader of the Opposition John O'Toole (Con) criticized the government's action, saying that "I am not opposed to giving our youth the ability to vote, but the government doing so before the trial period is over is a power grab that displays the despair that the Social Democrats are in about the upcoming elections." Christopher Williamson of the People's Democrats echoed O'Toole's criticism, saying "the Social Democrats know they can't win so they have to turn to brainwashing our youth." Frasine Waters of the Greens, Eva Nokleby of Indigenous People's, and Ishaan Khatri of The Left each individually issued statements of support for this action and committed their caucuses to yes votes on the impending legislation.

    Parliament is expected to consider this legislation early next week.

SDP is in disarray in Québec--party braces for a wipeout in September local/provincial elections

    MONTRÉAL -- At the Social Democratic Party's campaign headquarters in downtown Montréal, it is eerily empty considering the election season for the 2022 local/provincial elections is in full swing. A few campaign staffers moved around, putting on pots of coffee, shuffling papers, and typing out e-mails. The atmosphere of the country's governing party's campaign operations in the country's second most populous province reflects the grim state of its campaign here.

    The Social Democrats form a minority government in the Québec Deliberative with party leader Anaïs Delwart-Kumar holding the chancellorship following the resignation of former Chancellor Chantel Dubois to take on the office of presiding officer at the United Forum of Nations Parliament. Delwart-Kumar, in her third term representing portions of Montréal in the Deliberative, had little name recognition prior to succeeding Dubois as SDP party leader. Now she faces the daunting role of preserving an SDP government in next month's elections--with deflating traction. Delwart-Kumar, however, remained optimistic when the Daily Herald spoke to her at her Montréal townhome, saying "I am confident that we will prove to millions of Quebecois that the Social Democrats have delivered results for them and will continue to do so under my governance."

    The SDP's woes at the provincial level have seeped into the local level as well. In Montréal, the country's second most populous city and a dominating force for the left, incumbent mayor Valérie Bergeron narrowly survived a vote of confidence by the city's SDP association last month. Bergeron's term as mayor has been dogged down by scandals which have clouded public confidence in her governance and spurred investigations that are ongoing, including one into her policy advisors having accepted multi-million dollar bribes in exchange for mayoral backing of awarding of lucrative contracts to their originators. In Québec City, the provincial capital and a more conservative city by Angladien measures, the SDP has struggled to field candidates for all positions for the city assembly and haven't won a mayoral race there in recent memory.

    Québec has long been a stronghold for the governing Social Democrats, even as the party was wiped out nationally by the Conservatives in 2011 and later by the Moderates in 2015. The Social Democrats have continuously formed a government at the provincial level in the 21st century, though the thinning majorities indicate that voter confidence in the party to pursue policy has diminished. September's local/provincial elections will be a test of how the party will grapple with its decline in the province and how national Social Democrats will move forward.

NHS working on procuring additional monkeypox vaccines

    CARDIFF -- Minister of Public Health Howard Tsui (SDP) announced Friday that the National Health Service (NHS) is in a global search to procure additional monkeypox vaccines "as expeditiously as we can" in order to tackle the monkeypox disease. As of this article's publishing, Angladen has recorded 1,359 cases with a little less than half of them being in Ontario. As he announced work on procuring vaccines, Tsui stressed that "there is no cause to panic as we currently have adequate numbers of vaccines to offer them to all high-risk individuals." Unlike the United States which has authorized smaller doses, Tsui also noted that "Angladen is studying potential authorization of vaccine dose divisions to expand vaccination availability but that is not yet authorized."

    Monkeypox cases have been steadily climbing and Prime Minister Kristina Moulin (SDP) declared a public health emergency earlier this month on 5 August. The current public health emergency allows for additional funds and resources to be allocated and activated to handle the monkeypox disease. However, Moulin, when declaring the public health emergency, stressed that "we are not foreseeing a repeat of COVID-19 pandemic restrictions but I encourage all Angladiens to take necessary precautions such as avoiding unnecessary physical contact and frequent handwashing to protect themselves and their loved ones."

    On an equality and equity lens, Minister of Culture & Cohesion Anna Elkson (SDP) issued a press release on 8 August saying "monkeypox, contrary to false reports, is not a gay disease. We must avoid any form of discrimination and stigma as we confront this public health issue together as Angladiens."
