G’day

It seems that there hasn’t been a lot of news recently in the DRF, so we’ve tried our best to give you some news. So, sit back, relax, and enjoy DRF Chronicle #8!

Breaking News:

1. Puetavisa ends trial

What has been the main story in the DRF for the last two months is now over... for now. On Sunday 1st September, the Foreign Secretary of the DRF, Abbots was free from the charges of treason presented to the DRF five weeks ago. Puetavisa, Archduke of The Wolf Clan, was presented with a deadline after no progress was on the trial, and announced his decision on DRF Regional Court RMB. This decision was made however, with the option of reopening the case, if Puetavisa sees fit. So to conclude what has been an eventful few weeks, Abbots, the Foreign Secretary pick for new PM Zweites Preussen, he/she is off the hook, but only for now.

2. Immigration boom in the DRF

Following the creation of recruitment nation, DRF Office of Recruitment in the last few weeks, the DRF has seen a huge rise in the number of new arrivals, taking the DRF into the top 500 of regions and making the population 29 nations as of the 4th September. Prominent arrivals include Vicuraus, Eurasia america and africa. This is the second highest the DRF has reached, and hopefully it just keeps bringing positivity to the region.

3. DRF adopts new regional message: #climatechangehappens

After the two new embassies with eco-friendly region were finalised recently, the leader of one of the new embassy regions, Paris Agreement Founder has been getting involved in the DRF RMB. One of the campaigns presented to the region by the Founder of Paris Agreement was #climatechangehappens.
This campaign has been started to raise awareness of climate change, and Abbots, who begun this eco-friendly stance, has proceeded to help the campaign. #climatechangehappens was then put in the DRF WFE to spread the word.

Interregional News:

1. New embassy for DRF

A new embassy has been added to the list for the DRF! Zentari is a medium and democratic region, a lot like the DRF. Hopefully this can lead to stronger relations between the two regions in the future.

2. The Clover Confederation threatens to leave the Wolf Kingdom

In the last two weeks, The Excalian-Wolf Clan Puppet announced on TWC RMB that the TCC would be leaving the Wolf Kingdom. The reasons given were that the TCC wants to be an independent region. Despite this, a puppet of Puet in TCC cancelled the closure and talks began between the two sides.

And so that concludes the eighth DRF Chronicle, I hoped you enjoyed it! If you have any comments, I love to hear them, so feel free to TG me!

I’d also like to thank everyone for reading my interview with Puetavisa and for helping it take it to #7 on the dispatch list, I will definitely provide more.

Just remember: #climatechangehappens

Unpopular opinion: The region is going downhill due to the lack of political drama, the parties don't have strong positions on specific issues anymore.

I can make the parties have strong positions on specific issues, I'm good with that :smirk: lol

Me and my Independant fellows demand that everyone is given possession of a miniaturized nuclear warhead. Or we will kill all of you. That is our position and we shall not back down.

Sounds reasonable

Honestly it’s going downhill in political quality, I think, and uphill in general quality. At this point, the parties all have very similar views, so arguments are few and far between. That also means we’re making progress on other fronts: opening a university, having less squabbles in the Senate... But yeah, I miss the days of the TPU, the PPT, the TSP, and the FAIP. The reformists ushered in a new era of politics, but one much more vicious than the last.

Recreational McNukes™ for everyone!

  • Section IV - The President may call for a snap election in the Upper or Lower Chambers of Congress with the consensus of Cabinet Ministers. Should no majority be found 10 days after an election, the President shall also be allowed to extend the deadline for the formation of a majority coalition in the Senate or House of Commons by up to a maximum of 10 days if no coalition can be formed in time. When this deadline is reached, a snap election shall be held.

  • Section V - The President has the legal power to ban in the event of a regional emergency. The Cabinet must give its consent to the President before this action is taken. The Court has the power to overturn this decision, provided there was no regional emergency.

Article II - The Legislative Branch

  • Section I - The Legislative branch of government, also known as congress, shall be a bicameral legislature. The lower chamber shall be called the House of Commons (also known as the Commons or simply the House) and shall consist of at least seven members of parliament (MPs). The upper chamber shall be called the Senate and shall consist of at least 5 senators. In order to expand the number of seats in either house, two thirds of both chambers and the region, in the form of a referendum, must approve of the expansion. The expansion must always result in an odd number of seats in a chamber.

  • Section II - Any bill drafted and proposed by one of the Chambers of Congress must achieve a majority of the chamber's support, before it can go to the other chamber of Congress where it needs to reach the same majority. If it fails to reach a majority in the second chamber, it may be sent back to the first chamber to be amended or scrapped. If it does command support of the second chamber, it will become law.

Both roles are chosen by a simple majority vote by the members of the respective chambers. Parties can only put forward one candidate for the chambers leadership elections.

If no new majority is formed, a new election for that chamber must be called. Motions of no-confidence shall be capped at one every 60 days for the Senate, and one every 30 days for the House of Commons.

  • Section V - Any chamber can create legislation. If legislation is voted on and passed by a chamber, the other chamber must hold a confirmatory vote. If this vote passes, the bill becomes law.

I would disagree, the university hasn't done anything yet, it's a university in name only. The fact we had more parties back then means nothing, you barely saw any arguments involving people in TSP or FAlP.

Thaecian People's Party has taken note of the declining political activity in the region and would like to inform the the citizens of Thaecia that it would be stepping up its political activity in the next few days.

You know, as a region, we do not need to always be in a tense political state. If anything, after election time parties ought to ditch the partisanship and come together to solve the region's problems.
