Popular Constituent Assembly to hold Vote on Trade Deal with Neferheim
The first official meeting of the newly elected Constituent Assembly has now begun, with the initial goal of beginning a mutually prosperous trade deal with the struggling nation of Neferheim. Despite being discredited by opposition parties as supporting questionable regimes, the Centre Party has reassured the public that this deal would only be economic. The effective terms of the deal are as follows:
-Vescarian private firms will be allowed exclusive rights to mine in Neferheim iron mines.
-Vescarian steel companies will be allocated 20% of Neferheim's steel mills for privatized use.
-In return, Vescarium will sell finished products (such as cars), minerals, and machine parts back to Neferheim at a reduced cost.
A delegation has been sent to Neferheim to further discuss the agreement, though the Assembly still remains divided on whether or not to go through with it.
WTF Sanctions on Mesoamerica Lifted
As news are received of Mesoamerican finally abolishing slavery, the Secretary-General of WTF has announced that sanctions on Mesoamerica will be lifted as WTF's purpose for the sanctions no longer exists. The Secretary General has stated that he is 'grateful' that Mesoamerica is finally following basic human rights.
The Medovian Right-Wing is still up in arms after what they call a "stolen election" and held a massive protest in Medovia's capital, Gavarnik. The protesters claim that the new PM, Simon Pagasov, directed false information to be directed by armies of fake accounts, which made the difference in Pagasov's party's very narrow victory. The leader of the right-wing Medovian National Front and ex-PM, Hakob Beliśavar, addressed the crowd affirming that the party will work at every step to oppose this 'leftist PM' and that his party will be applying to the justice ministry to investigate claims of fraud by the Democratic Alliance party.
The protesters in the end sang the national anthem and marched from the Parliament Square to the offices of the ruling Democratic Alliance party. A Democratic Alliance spokesman called the protesters 'sore losers' and that the Medovian National Front would better serve Medovia being a constructive political force in Parliament rather than shouting slogans in the streets. Political experts expect the Democratic Alliance to pass a series of social welfare reforms in Parliament as well as reviewing the Education curriculum. One subject of interest is the History of the Medovian Church which is taught as a separate subject. There are rumors that the subject may be removed, but such a move may risk the ire of moderates that are helping keep the centre-left coalition intact.
A few isolated incidents between protesters and police did take place in the aftermath of the event.
3 JULY 2020
The Fylka was abuzz with discussion. While intended to become a more democratic body with the advent of elections in October, as of now it was a collection of members of the clergy all appointed by the Nala to help support his reforms within the nation. Today, the Fylka would see its first test to see if it could effectively make decisions for the Divine State
The Guurissi, the original inhabitants of Neuewland before the Sivuk migration out of modern day Anderum, had declared independence against Neuewland for the tenth time in the nation's history. Normally, this wouldn't be of concern for Aleni, but these were special circumstances. After the offer to join the Union of Sivuk by the Nala, the Neuew Plutarchs had voted against joining the union, but with the potential to become involved if the member states supported the nation in their civil conflict. This had sparked debate in the Fylka, and the decision on how this conflict would be handled was the first topic the Nala would leave up to the Fylka, as a sort of test run.
The Fylka, since the debate had started, had split up into three factions.
There were some who advocated for full intervention in the war, to prove our friendship to Neuewland. The 21st century had already been a time of renewed relations between the normally hostile states, and had even seen the Neuew help the Alenians in various conflicts they had elected to become involved in. They argued that intervening in the war on the side of the Neuews would further cement that relationship, as well as strengthen the pan-Zeeite cause.
Others were hardline against the intervention. One of the major reasons that Mena Alen II thought the reforms were so vital was because the entrenched noble clergymen were the ones who pushed so hard for the war with Velutaria, which ended in a failure for the Alenians. Another war could very well turn public opinion against the Nala, which would give the Nobles an excuse to replace the current Nala with one of his many cousins, most of which were much more incompetent than him. This faction also argued that supporting Neuew interests was entirely against the best interests of Aleni, considering that the Neuewland has had rocky relations with nearly every other Zeeite nation. Interventing could jeopardize the stability of the Union, and bring crashing down what Mena so desperately wanted to work.
Finally, the moderates advocated for something different, which would create a test for another one of Mena Alen's many projects: The Union of Sivuk. Aleni would call a meeting between the leadership of Nerany, Whitmarche, and Paslin Island to determine what path they would take. How the Plutarchs would interact with the Union could forever shape how it operated, so they argued that the best course of action would be to have the leaders of the Zeeite states come together to determine how the crisis in Neuewland would be handeled.
The debate didn't seem nearly finished by the end of the day, and so it would continue until...
5 JULY 2020
The Fylka had finally come to a decision. The moderates had won out.
Worrying about what would happen if large groups of moderates started siding with the "warmongers" as they called them, many of those supporting absolute pacifism sided with the moderates to increase the chances that there would be no intervention. In the end, the moderates won out, and the Nala had to schedule a meeting which would go down in history as deciding what role the Union of Sivuk would play in the affairs of the Sivuk Gulf Region outside of purely trade and general cooperation.
Nala Mena Alen decided to write a short, concise letter to the leaders of Paslin, Whitmarche, and Nerany.
Dearest leaders of the Zeeite people,
The crisis in Neuewland shall be our first challenge. We will meet in Lenina within two weeks time, on 19 June 2020, to discuss the issue.
Regards, Nala Mena Alen II of the Most Divine Nalacy of Aleni
