Recommendation: Appointment of an Attorney-General

Voastra Maxhestá —

I come now before the throne seeking an audience to recommend the appointment of a Minister to Your Majesty’s Government.

Talossa is an addicting habit, as our website states. However, for reasons which often are beyond their will, many of us are forced to dedicate more time to their lives, to deal with unexpected personal issues, or with an upcoming important event; sometimes, instead, they are simply away due to less important problems (thankfully) like issues with their internet connection, or because they’re traveling. Luckily, this seems to be the case with Minister da Lhiun – although we are relieved to learn that nothing serious has happened to him, I feel compelled to replace him to ensure that the Government keeps working smoothly and the upcoming judicial cases concerning the Government are properly dealt with.

SO WHEREAS Lex.D.2.1 states that “All other Cabinet officers are appointed by the Seneschal (Prime Minister), serve at his pleasure, are responsible to him, and derive their powers from him”, and

WHEREAS one of the Ministers of my Government is temporarily unavailable; and

WHEREAS it is of our best interest to ensure that the Government is fully functional, and that all Ministers and Deputies are around to do their jobs; and

WHEREAS, thankfully, an excellently qualificated replacement exists and is willing to replace S:r da Lhiun in his position as Attorney-General; so

THEREFORE I, Lüc da Schir, Seneschal del Regipäts Talossan, with all duly vested authority and stuff, hereby recommend that Your Majesty appoint:

100px-JusticeBadgeDr. Txec dal Nordselvă
to the position of
Attorney-General

FURTHERMORE, S:r da Lhiun is not relieved from any other office he is currently holding within the Cabinet, and will continue to serve as Deputy Attorney-General.FURTHER-FURTHERMORE, WHEREAS Lex.D.2.1 states that “anything that any Minister can do (officially), the Seneschal may (if he desires) do himself.”, and WHEREAS until HM the King of Talossa countersigns this recommendation, Talossa will continue to have an inactive Attorney-General; so

THEREFORE until the required Royal Assent to this recommendation, the Seneschal will unofficially serve as Attorney-General ad interim, his duties including representing the Government in the pending court cases.

Confident that the Crown will consent to this recommendation, may I be the first to congratulate Dr. Nordselva in advance and and to wish him all the best for his term in office.

Lüc da Schir
Seneschal


I of course approve this nomination, and hereby appoint Dr Nordselva Attorney General.

Recommendation: Appointment of a Clerk of Courts

Voastra Maxhestá —

I come now before the throne to recommend the appointment of a new Clerk of Courts. As the office is currently open, the previous Clerk having been relieved of his duties last Saturday, it now falls upon me to recommend you, as per Lex.G.5, a person to serve as the new Clerk of Courts.

Therefore I, Lüc da Schir, Seneschal del Regipäts Talossan, with all duly vested authority and stuff, hereby recommend that Your Majesty appoint:

Judiciary BadgeMarcel Eðo Pairescu Tafial
to the position of
Clerk of Courts

I have already explained inside an answer to a Terpelaziun, earlier this month, the reasons under the Government’s choice of S:r Tafial, and I am fully confident of his ability and reliability, and of his willingness to serve Talossa at his best during his tenure as Clerk of Courts. May I be the first to congratulate in advance with Marcel and to wish him all the best for his term in office.

Lüc da Schir
Prime Minister / Seneschal


I am very happy hereby to appoint S:reu Marcel Tafial to the exalted and potent office of Clerk of Courts. Thank you for agreeing to serve!

Recommendation: Appointment of a Cabinet

Voastra Maxhestá —

I come now before the throne seeking an audience to recommend the appointment of Ministers to Your Majesty’s Government.

The Moderate Radical Party of Talossa, els Zefençadéirs del Repúblicanismeu Talossán, the Liberal Congress and the Progressive Party have agreed on the appointment of a cabinet consisting of the following ministers. We have deliberately chosen to slim down the team by having the Distáin hold a ministerial portfolio too and by merging the Home Affairs, Immigration and Defence portfolio to be held by a single Interior Minister as per 47PD01.

This is a team of ambitious and experienced people who are all eager to get things done and show Talossa that an active government is not an utopia. Allow me to add as a personal remark, Your Majesty, that I regard this as an absolute “dream team”, and that I have the maximum confidence in these citizens’ loyalty and dedication to the Kingdom.

Therefore, I, Lüc da Schir, Seneschal del Regipäts Talossan, with all duly vested authority and stuff, hereby recommend that Your Majesty appoint these fellow Talossan citizens and loyal subjects of yours to the following cabinet posts:

DistainBadgeMiestrâ Schivâ, UrN

Distain;

Confident that the Crown will consent to accept these recommendations, may I be the first to congratulate each of the newly appointed Ministers. I look forward to working with you all over the upcoming term.

Trusting that we have all the names right now :), I thank you for these recommendations, and am pleased hereby to make these appointments. Congratulations, thanks, and best wishes to you and all who have agreed to serve in your Cabinet.

Recommendation: Appointment of a Distain

Voastra Maxhestà,

I will keep it short this time, as my time is rather limited. Our Distain has resigned, and we are left with no other choice to accept his resignation.

Your Majesty, the MRPT/ZRT coaltion government has been able to find a good replacement, a Dame no less. It seems appropriate for the leader of the second largest coalition party to serve as Distain, more so, because her active involvement and ambition may very much help this government in getting things done.

Therefore I, Glüc da Dhi, Seneschal del Regipäts Talossan, with all duly vested authority and stuff, hereby recommend that Your Majesty appoint

I heartily endorse this nomination, and hereby make the appointment. Many thanks to Dame Miestra for agreeing to serve.

Recommendation: Appointment of a New Minister of Finance

Voastra Maxhestà,

As you may have read on the forum already, our Finance Minister has decided, after the outcome of the Senate vote on his proposal regarding monetary policy and coin design, to resign. S;reu Perthonest, who served in the previous government, has done a tremendous amount of work for our Kingdom and we are very thankful for that. His presence at the cabinet table will be missed.

Your Majesty, I would like to inform you that this government has been able to find a replacement, who is willing to take on the heavy burden of Finance minister. The previous weeks have been rough for this government, so we are very glad that we could find someone who is capable and whom we can trust.

Therefore I, Glüc da Dhi, Seneschal del Regipäts Talossan, with all duly vested authority and stuff, hereby recommend that Your Majesty appoint:

Finance Minister

Announcement: Month of recess (May 2014)

Announcement: Month of recess (May 2014)

Your Majesty, members of the Ziu, fellow Talossans,

As you all may know, there are a few issues that we are facing at the moment. The most recent clark has sparked some discussion about the interpretation of the results. The next clark would normally start in two days, but it still not clear what the results of the previous clark were and not much time is left for proposing bills for next clark. At the same time, it looks like our Minister of Finance has resigned over the failing of the coin bill, which means the governments plan for producing coins has come at least to a temporary halt. We will need to find a replacement and consider our plan on this issue. These and other issues require some sorting out.

Therefore it would seem wise to this government to declare the month of May a month of recess, which means the 4th clark will start on the first of June.

This does obviously not mean that this government will rest the next month. Instead we will be working hard towards coming up with new legislation and making progress on the projects we are working on. This decision will hopefully also give the MCs in the civil service committee some time to focus on finding a candidate for the Commissioner of the Civil Service.

That is all.

-Glüc da Dhi, Seneschal
