  10. March 2017 Senate Elections Shake Things Up Europeia is a region that has always held its Senate to high standards, and that was one again the case in our recent elections. Out of our seven precious senators, only three, Malashaan, Rand and United Vietussia ran for reelection. A crop of faces both new and old joined the race - successful CA Chair Grizzli, rising citizen JayDee, returning former Senator Isaris, regional founder HEM, ancient-hand from the early days Verteger, new citizen Constie and, returning after a long absence, Cerian Quilor. In a heated but polite campaign, the records and programs of all the candidates were thoroughly examined, and hard questions were asked of each and every candidate. Major topics for debate were the Citizens Assembly and current legislation on the floor of the Senate. The election itself proved to be a real change, with only one of the three previous Senators winning reelection - Malashaan, arguably the region's greatest legislative mind. Indeed, he won with the largest mandate in Senate election history, with 59 votes, twelve more than even the second-highest vote getter. The Senate also shifted direction in electing a slightly more conservative, or at least, conservative-minded, Senate that the last one. Following Mal, in order of votes received was Grizzli, Ceian Quilor, Isaris, HEM and JayDee. The elections of JayDee and Grizzli in particular prove that Europeia is always willing to elect new faces who have proven themselves through dedication to the region. Scandal Alert In what was supposed to be a week of fun and games, many of Europeia’s most prolific players were caught being sentimental in their speeches. Cerian Quilor Seven Deaths Sopo Cheryl Frazier When confronted about this shocking development, Cerian Quilor promised that such sentiment would not be routine, and we should expect his typical cynicism to return in the coming days. Meanwhile, Europeians and Foreign Visitors from around the globe participated in lots of festive games, including ‘President Spam points’ a game where each person adds points to a person who served as Head of State in a certain 2-year period. While everyone else was busy spamming away, two teams of Europeians raced it to the finish line in a tour around the history of Europeia’s 10 year existence, pitting the Europeian Chancellery vs. a team composing of Kaboom, Jahka, Wild Child, and United Vietussia, in which the Chancellery emerged victorious. All topped with a nostalgic look into Europeia’s past by some of Europeia’s oldest and most well known players. PS-I have been informed by my superiors that the last quote is actually from Miss Congeniality, I apologize for the confusion. Euro10 Celebration Offers a Glimpse into Regional Economy Europeia is a region where effort is rewarded. Earlier this month, that reward came in the form of capital. Executive Order 95.10 was signed by President Aexnidaral Seymour, establishing the Second Regional Bank of Europeia (SRBE). Government salaries and entitlements were created, taxes and bank fees defined, and the economy of Europeia was begun again. Backlash by dissident members of the citizenry was palpable and immediate, even among members of the Administration. "This economy will ruin Europeia and set the Old Guard in positions of great wealth and power!" said Minister of the Interior, Leo Drakan. The Chairman of the SRBE, Writinglegend, counters, "This low energy individual will be proven wrong by our magnificent BANK. My success is your success." The SRBE and its policies, spanning the length of Euro10, the tenth anniversary celebration of Europeia, were the frequent subject of debate throughout Europeia. An income tax, a seniority fee based on a citizen's date of entry, and a post-count fee all raised the stakes. "The frighteningly vaguely named 'Bank's Discretion Fee' is never even defined in an objectively quantifiable way, leaving citizens at the mercy of the Bank!" alleged Senator Isaris. Finally, the Senate made its will known, and vetoed Executive Order 95.10 and the Bank it spawned. Citizen response was overwhelmingly positive to the effort put on by the Ministry of Culture for this particular little game, including a comment from GraVandius. "I actually love it. This is the first time I've been having a lot of fun in Euro for a few months." In Other News The Europeian Republican Navy has led a number of successful operations in recent weeks, dethroning delegates and tagging regions left and right, including Nova Terra, Union of Proletarian States, Empire of Russia, Foxy, Brothers for Life, Central Rhodesia, and Unovathalamuss. The Presidential Elections have opened, with three tickets dueling for the Goldenblock: Kaboom/Rand, Calvin Coolidge/Darcness and Common-Sense Politics/Cat A Pact of Non-Aggression was signed between KGB and Europeia has been signed. Sopo was elected Chair of the Citizens Assembly

    Europeian Update July 2016

    July 2016 Trinnien defeats Calvin Coolidge and Aditya Republic in Presidential Election (Europeia, July 7, 2016) - Assemblyman Trinnien defeated President Calvin Coolidge and Assemblyman Aditya Republic in the recent election for President of Europeia. Trinnien and his Vice President and outgoing Supreme Chancellor, HEM, earned 37 votes (50.7 percent of the vote), while Calvin Coolidge and his running mate Kuramia earned 28 votes (38.4 percent of the vote), and finally, Aditya Republic and his running mate Zapper earned 8 votes (11 percent of the vote). "Europeia is more than just one person, it is more than just me. We have work to do in this term, as an Administration that seeks to revitalize and reinvigorate the spirit of the citizenry, and as a People that must find our passion and purpose. Nine years is too long of a time, a legacy too greatly created, sacrifices too honorably given, and beliefs too deeply ingrained for us to sit idly by. We are Europeia, and we have and we will overcome any obstacle in front of us," said President Trinnien in his Inagural Address. Some of the most notable changes he and his Vice President promised to make were to split the Interior Ministry into Recruitment and Integration, as well as implement an "internship" program in the Civil Service Officum. President Trinnien's Inagural Address can be found here: http://www.nationstates.net/page=dispatch/id=658462 Changes to Europeian Chancellery (Europeia, July 15, 2016) - After Supreme Chancellor HEM resigned at the conclusion of the Presidential election, two additions to the Chancellery have been made. Mousebumples and Drecq will join the team at Supreme Chancellor Lethen's side. Drecq will join the Chancellory as Vice-Chancellor, for which he does not need Senate confirmation according to the Constitution of Europeia. He currently serves as Attorney General and is one of the most distinguished members of the currently active community. "I feel the person chosen possesses all the skills I'd ask for in my deputy: oratory skills, reliability, an understanding of the expectations of the Chancellery and its duties, and a history of excellence in our region," Lethen explained. Mousebumples' appointment needed to be confirmed by the Europeian Senate first. Honored citizen and six times President Pope Lexus X argued that, "Mouse has been one of the greatest assets to Europeia. It is a massive decision to raise someone to level of Supreme Chancellor but I can scarcely conceive of anyone more deserving." Mousebumples was confirmed as Supreme Chancellor unilaterally with 6 votes in favour. Her appointment was widely applauded. HEM, whose resignation resulted in the appointments, seemed satisfied as he postulated that, "This is a new chapter for our region, and I suspect it will be a good one." Standing Period Opens for August Senate Election (Europeia, July 29, 2016) - The Republic of Europeia has just opened the standing period for the next Senate Election which will be held on August 5th. The standing period was opened by Vice Chancellor Drecq who said in his speech: "There exists no place where debate is as deeply enshrined within the very soul of the institution as it is in Europeia's Senate. So I encourage everyone, young and old, new and established Citizens alike, to run." In order to be eligible for the ballot, candidates must have been citizens at the time the election was called, and must declare their candidacy to the Oval Room prior to the end of the standing period. At the time of publication 17 candidates have stood for the Senate: Aexnidaral Seymour, Kraketopia, zapper, Rand, Kuramia, Potchen, Isaris, Malashaan, Aditya Republic, Possibly This, Shin 3.0, Anumia, Alnama, McEntire, Punchwood, United Vietussia and Notolecta. Worst of the Worst This past major update, the Europeian Republican Navy led a tag update operation with the Jomsvikings of Balder and the British Army in United Kingdom. Despite large variance and a quicker update then normal, we succeeded in the operation. Fun was had between our regions and we ultimately came out successful with increased cooperation between our militaries. Grand Admiral Writinglegend led and triggered with Commodore CptCarrot (also repping Balder), Midshipman Cat, Midshipman LeSageStupide, and Midshipman Cokeland participating in the operation. Huzzah! The Europeian Broadcasting Corporation Presents... Each report we file will feature at least one article from Europeia's state run media, the EBC, or from our private media center, the LethoMonarchy. Upcoming in Europeia... The EurOlympics, a mix of games and intra-administration competitions, will be held August 15th through August 19th. The next Presidential Election will be held on September 9th, 2016, with the Standing Period beginning between August 29th and September 2nd, 2016. This has been a joint production from the Ministry of Communications and Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Europeia. Thank you for reading!
