BEER Affair: Secret deal “purely my decision”, says Rôibeardescù

Senator Txosuè Éiric Rôibeardescù agreed to speak briefly to ETT giving his side of the affair. While declining to be quoted at length, as he was in a somewhat emotional state, he did share with ETT the following:

  • He felt very strongly that the BEER position should be filled, believing that it would have been “cool” to have such an office active. The Seneschal however declined the suggestion.
  • Becoming aware that Gaglhen Fortaleça was both enthusiastic about space issues and about to add a bill to the Clark claiming territory on the Moon which he found repugnant, the Senator claimed that he attempted to manipulate the situation in order to achieve both his aims simultaneously, “like on Game of Thrones”, i.e., activating BEER while neutralising legislation he felt would be disastrous.
  • He stated that at no time was the Seneschal or any other government figure aware of his scheme, which he said was “purely my decision”. He also claims that he did not deliberately lead Fortaleça to believe that the Seneschal was aware of or in agreement with his proposal.
  • He also confirmed his previous statements on Wittenberg claiming that he has been coping with some serious emotional issues recently which explain his erratic behaviour in the last few weeks.

Meanwhile a source close to the government has confirmed that the FDA’s internal disciplinary action against Senator Rôibeardescù is ongoing, but that a final decision on the Alliance’s next course of action may have to wait until after 4th August, when the Seneschal returns from a trip abroad.

No official comment has been made by the FDA leadership on the status of the disciplinary action or what sanctions are envisaged since Senator Miestrâ Schivâ stated yesterday evening that she supported the expulsion of Senator Rôibeardescù from the Alliance.

Profile: Lüc da Schir, O.Be, Distain

S:reu da Schir is 17 years old and lives in Italy. He has been a Talossan since 2012, and is a citizen of the province of Benito. He has been a member of the Ziu since the 44th Cosa, firstly as a Member of the Cosa for three terms (44th, 45th and 46th), and then as Senator for Benito from 2014 (47th Cosa). He has also held a number of posts in the provincial government of Benito, most notably serving as Maestro (governor) from July 2013-October 2014.
He was Party Whip of the MRPT during the 46th Cosa, and later became Party Secretary. He is also the publisher of the Talossan Observer newspaper, currently on hiatus.
He was appointed Minister of Stuff during the 46th Cosa, and during the 47th Cosa was apppointed Senechal of the Kingdom as head of a coalition of the MRPT, ZRT, Liberal Congress and the Progressive Party. As Seneschal he additionally filled temporary vacancies in the Cabinet during the 47th Cosa, including Minister of Finance and Attorney-General.

Statement from Seneschal: “A Nation Healed?”

Original post on Wittenberg

A few years ago now, two wonderful states looked past their differences and instead focussed on the things which united them. They saw that they shared one nation; they shared a culture and a language, they shared a history as well. Sure, its constitutions varied as did their use of diacritics, but there was an underlying Talossanity which brought us together. Thanks to the hard work of a handful of negotiators, our Talossas became One Talossa. It became a politically different Talossa, with some culture clashes, not to mention personality clashes.

I’m not going to stand here and tell you that all of these things have gone away. There’s a significant amount of enmity between some people in Talossa. Heck, we still have some rebelliousness over the language as well, but I figure that’s more of a good thing than the former. But, things have changed for the better. Reviensadeirs can be found all over Talossa, contributing to the development of our language and the government’s education programmes, contributing to our literature, serving as legislators or ministers.

Reviensadeirs can now claim to have fully integrated. For the very first time, a Reviensadeir has been appointed as Seneschal of the Kingdom of Talossa. A (sort of – I prefer an elective monarchy m’self) republican, for the first time in quite some time is our head of government. But I don’t want to be Seneschal of Republicans. I’ve done that already, believe it or not, when I was a wee bit younger, and the political competition wasn’t quite so stiff. No, I want to be el Seneschal of all Talossans: whether republican, monarchist, or somewhere in between like me.

Our first challenge once votes have been validated, will be to tackle the Proclamation Crisis. My government will resolutely stand by the Democratic Amendment which is currently floating in the Hopper. I urge our future legislators to do the same, whether you’re sitting as a Socialist or a RUMP conservative; whether you’re a Progressive, a Moderate Radical, or a liberal Free Democrat – the Democratic Amendment will see us fix some of the problems with a monarchical system. And, I believe it will strengthen the monarchy: it will be a more democratic monarchy, a more constitutionally limited monarchy, and a better monarchy. It is a monarchy we will all be able to tolerably live under, which is important, because Talossa is a home to a very diverse family of settlers now.

Later today, I will be making my recommendations to the King as to whom I will be including in my Cabinet. I’ll be drawing on talent from the Free Democrats, from the Moderate Radicals, and the Progressives. It is my hope to invite talented Talossans from outside of this coalition to join us as junior ministers too, so that this government can effectively serve all Talossans.

Thank you!

PS. WHERE’S MY CHAIN?!

48th Cosâ Election: Forming a government

According to the Organic Law (Article XI, section 2), the King appoints the Seneschal. If a single party controls a majority of the seats in the Cosa, then they designate the person to be appointed, and the King must appoint that person. It is however certain that once the 48th Cosa election has been validated by the Election Commission, no single party will control a majority.

In that case, the King must engage in talks with the party leaders in order to appoint a Seneschál who is capable of keeping the confidence of the Cosâ. This is of crucial importance as there is a Vote of Confidence each month the Cosâ is in session. If no new Seneschál can be appointed (or the incumbent cannot be re-appointed) who can command a majority within one month of the end of the election then the King must dissolve the Cosâ and new elections are held.

At the time of writing the most probable outcome is a renewed FreeDem-MRPT-Progressive coalition. The (unvalidated) 107-seat total of the coalition parties gives them a clear majority, two seats down from their combined total at the dissolution of the 47th Cosâ.

The RUMP, which as the largest single party in the Cosâ would anchor any alternative coalition, lost eleven seats and would need either the FreeDems or the MRPT to abandon the coalition in their favour. The probability of this at the time of writing would appear to be low. The alternative, to assemble a coalition ranging from the Socialist Party to the Progressives, and including either independents Hayes or Ardpresteir, would also appear ambitious at this point and would only have between a one and three seat majority.

The election has shifted the balance of power within the outgoing government parties. The FreeDems managed to remain the largest single component of the outgoing coalition despite a loss of five seats from the combined ZRT-LibCon total at dissolution, and sources close to the alliance state that the mooted fusion between the component parties is still planned.

This will probably result in a change of Seneschál, as the FreeDem candidate C. Carlüs Xheraltescù staked an early claim to the position during the campaign, and neither MRPT’s outgoing Seneschál Lüc da Schir nor the Progressives publicly demurred from the logic that the candidate of the largest party in the coalition should be the Seneschál nominee.

It was however a narrow margin: forty-seven seats to forty-six in favour of the FreeDems. Indeed the MRPT, alone among the established parties in the Cosa, managed to improve on its seat total at dissolution with a gain of four seats, and will be disappointed at losing the leadership of the government due to such a close result. The third coalition partner, the Progressives, lost one seat.

These seat totals however assume no change in the distribution to each party after the validation of the results. The invalidation of even one popular vote could effect the distribution of one to two seats in the Cosâ-and with it the leadership of the government.

The Government totters over disputes between Ministers

Just a couple of days inside this Cosa's Month of Recess, halfway through the 46th Cosa, the Government is living its first serious crisis since the Cabinet took office. As if Istefan Perþonest's resignations as the Finance Minister, following the Senate's refusal of the coinage bill, weren't enough, a heated debate arose between prominent members of the Cabinet: MRPT's leader Glüc da Dhi (Seneschal) and whip Lüc da Schir (Minister of Stuff), ZRT's leader Miestra Schiva (Minister of Culture) and Liberal leader Carlüs Xheraltescu.

The argument seems to have begun with Xheraltescu affirming that his party was the only to prioritize "freedom, localism, reform and fighting conformity" and da Dhi opposing his view, providing examples for each point made by Xheraltescu.

Soon enough, the discussion moved over MC Andrinescu, former MRPT member serving in the Cosa, when ZRT's Schivâ blamed the MRPT leadership's actions over Andrinescu's seats. A hot topic of the evening was also whether the Liberal Congress would be accepted as a full coalition member.

Later on, Distain Xheraltescu resigned from the Cabinet, with a heated attack over the Seneschal, accused to be uncommunicative towards his ministers and to have repeatedly snubbed his party. Da Dhi replied stating that Xheraltescu was leaving only because he didn't get his way on the coalition deal and that his [da Dhi's] reasoning wasn't arbitrary but consistent with his reasonings in the past years. Schivâ, instead, begged Xheraltescu to reconsider.

After Xheraltescu's resignations, the stability of the Government is at risk. MRPT's Minister da Schir has reportedly softened his position, submitting to the Government a seven points plan to reconcile its Ministers. Among them, a call to da Dhi to recognise the Liberal Congress as an official Coalition party and to Xheraltescu to retract his resignation.

The recognition of the LC as an official Coalition party has the favour of the ZRT and of a majority of ministers plus MRPTer da Schir. The MRPT, including the Seneschal, appears to be still against it, although da Schir's aperture to Xheraltescu was followed by da Dhi's decision to hold talks among his party.

To further confirm the Government's willingness to continue working, among the seven points is a request to the Seneschal to announce Perþonest's successor as soon as possible.

MCs for the 46th Cosa

As the General Election is finished and the seats have been splitted up between the four parties contesting the elections, the four Party Leaders have already assigned their seats to the new Members of the Cosa.

RUMP - 96 seats
Txec Roibeard dal Nordselva, 12 seats
Alexandreu Davinescu, 12 seats
Ma Count la Mha of Thord, 12 seats
Sir Cresti Mataiwos Siervicül, 12 seats
Marti-Pair Furxheir, 12 seats
Ian da Bitour, 12 seats
Eovart Xhorxh, 12 seats
Danihél Txechescu, 12 seats

MRPT - 56 seats
Lüc Ianescu Braneusëfiglheu da Schir, 14 seats
Alexandreu Soleiglhfréd, 14 seats
Eovart Andrinescu, 14 seats
Magniloqueu Epiqeu da Lhiun, 14 seats

ZRT - 44 seats
Cauvesc Carlüs Xheraltescu, 9 seats
Oïn Ursüm, 9 seats
Gödafrïeu Valcadac'h, 9 seats
Moritz Fernaodescu, 9 seats
Evan Cuntainça, 8 seats
With two seats unassigned, probably due to a wrong calculation by the party leader.

RPT - 4 seats
Mximo Carbonél, 4 seats


Additionally, it seems that the efforts from the "Time's Up Coalition" to form a new government have succeeded. ZRT's party leader Carlüs Xheraltescu has posted on Wittenberg a message which states that "[the ZRT and MRPT] confidently believe that further talks will lead to the formation of an effective government".
The new government will probably be led either by MRPT's da Dhi or by ZRT's Xheraltescu, and the other one acting as Distain. No official communications about the new cabinet have been made, though it will probably feature MRPTers, ZRTers, RPT's MC Carbonél and maybe a couple of Independents. More updates soon.

The Talossan Observer’s Analysis on the January 2014 General Elections

Everyone wants to read it. Everyone asked us to do it. And therefore the Talossan Observer presents...



The Talossan Observer's Analysis on the January 2014 General Elections
An almost un-biased report of the latest GE

a. Nationwide
Well, this isn't much of a surprise anymore: the self-styled "Time's Up Coalition" (MRPT and ZRT) has won a hundred seats in the Cosa (54 the MRPT and 46 the ZRT), which would be just enough to keep a government up during a legislature. With the RPT's four seats, these two parties could build up a Cabinet that would have the majority in the Cosa, a requirement the King counts very seriously (and the OrgLaw too) when it's time to appoint a Seneschal.

The RUMP hasn't actually seen a serious decrease in their number of seats, just two less than the last Cosa. This has been already predicted by myself during a chat, only two hours before the closing of the polls, when I told Glüc da Dhi that "[the RUMP] won't lose many [seats], but a drop of up to five seats is predictable [...]".

Also, for the records, I had nearly nailed even the final results during the same chat: "My best guess would be a close majority of the coalition, kinda like 105-95"

But the number of seats the RUMP took isn't as serious as the fact that, despite still being the majority party, unlike the past Cosa they don't have a coalition partner to form a government with. Sure thing, the King may ask a RUMP member to form a government on his behalf, but they need a coalition partner and the only one possible seems to be the MRPT. Which, having itself the chance of leading a government, perhaps will rather want to group up with the ZRT and maybe the RPT. But after these months of "Time's Up for the current government" slogans it the presence of the RUMP in the next Cabinet is everything but sure.

Kudos to the Acting SoS Furxheir: this election was overally well conducted, and this first semi-secret ballot experiment has worked. Next time, we expect a fully automated online form, but other than that, there's nothing relevant to be changed.

Keep an eye on...
Carlüs Xheraltescu, leader of the ZRT. Even if the ZRT is no longer the leading opposition party, he was the (unofficial) leader of the opposition during the last Cosa, and he's still the most experienced of the 2+1 Party Leaders that lead the Time's Up Coalition.




Glüc da Dhi, leader of the MRPT. As the leader of the biggest party in the Time's Up Coalition, if King John decides not to give another chance to the RUMP, he's likely the one who will receive the call. A politician from long time, despite his experience da Dhi has never held any Ministerial posts neither when he was in the PP, nor after he founded the MRPT in 2011. Until now, it seems.


Mximo Carbonél, leader of the RPT. Now here's the only man that could decide which government will be the next of the Kingdom, except for King John. Carbonél has already led a brief MN-ZPT royalist and conservative government in 2004. When he returned, in 2011, he picked the ZRT, republican and democratic, as his new party, only to leave and found a new one, the LPR/RPT, even more radical and leftist. If he joins the Time's Up Coalition, a reformist government will be formed. But if the RUMP promises him important ministerial posts, would he change his mind again and take part in a conservative cabinet?

Ián Anglatzarâ, former Senator for Fiova. He looks like the obvious candidate if King John prefers to appoint an independent Prime Minister. Anglatzara has the right experience, even in both the KRI Kingdom and in the Republic. He is also unaffiliated with any political party and may seem the right Seneschal to guide a wide coalition.

Txec dal Nordselva, outcoming Seneschal and leader of the RUMP. Even if the Rexhalistaes will probably fail to lead what would have been their ten government in a row (only the PC has done better with sixteen governments in a row), they may still have one last chance. Either way they will probably have to reorganize themselves, starting from Nordselva himself, who has failed to be present enough, since this summer, to keep the government up and working.

Then, let's not forget about some of the prominent Talossans who don't belong to a party anymore: Litz Cjantscheir, Istéfan PerþonestOwen Edwards and Dieter Vercaria have been in Talossa for quite some time, and Cjantscheir has led two governments. While none of them is a serious nonpartisan candidate to the Seneschalsqab, their experience could be an asset for a new government.

The turnout
If we look at the turnout, 55.03%, we can say that it could have been worse. 189 citizens were allowed to vote, just one more than the last election. This compares with 17 newly allowed citizens in the 45th Cosa GE, and a record 48 more citizens in the 44th one.

The turnout, instead, has been shrinking from 76.61% (44th) to 71.81 (45th) to 55.03%, an incredible drop that brings Talossa back to the April 2010 General Election which had an even lower turnout of 51.18%, but with way less people entitled to vote. We have to go back to October 2005 to find a similar turnout, 53.06% with only 49 citizens. That one was also the first election ever challenged by la Mha and Unamind's newly formed Random Unilateral Movement Party, the RUMP.

One of the things that really worries me is how many recent immigrants didn't vote. These people have basically took their citizenship and fled. Some of them looked even interested, in a first moment. Does it mean that immigrating has become too easy? Should the next government make immigration criteria stricter? This is definitely an issue that whichever government will be appointed will have to target and solve.

The results
Now, let's head towards the results themselves.

RUMP - Rexalistaes Uneuxhinds pr'iensa Monarc'ha Perpetul
Seats: 96 - Popular vote percentage: 48.00%

This will likely be remembered as the first election since April 2007's GE that a RUMPer will not be the next Prime Minister. Why that? They have lost just two seats, by the gods.
Well, the RUMP has always achieved an absolute majority of seats from April 2007 to April 2013, which means that Talossan has been ruled by a no-compromises-needed government for six years. Their seats, however, have begun to shrink at the point that the party has lost its monopoly with the 45th Cosa, when a coalition with the INDs has been necessary to keep a RUMPer at the Seneschalsqab. Now, with no coalition partners at the horizon, it seems that the RUMP will have to stay at the opposition for the first time since 2007. Maybe the voters are tired of the same party, which - apart of changing name and candidate every election or so - hasn't really sought to improve itself lately. A good revision of its dirigent class, its candidates and its policies might help to bring the RUMP back at the Seneschalsqab next time.

MRPT - Moderate Radical Party of Talossa
Seats: 54 - Popular vote percentage: 27.00% 

While the RUMP in the future might not want to remember this election, here's a party that has many reasons to do so. The MRPT is truly the party who has gained more with this election. When the RUMP was beginning its slow shrink, the newly formed MRPT collected barely eight seats. This was just the start of an unpredictable growth which saw them getting eighteen seats, then twentyone, then, now, fiftyfour, an incredible achievement for a party which has never been considered one of the "bigs" - and no opposition party has ever hold so much seats since the RUMP vs PP bipolar period around 2009. This is an occasion that da Dhi and da Schir's troops won't have to spoil.

ZRT - Zefençadeirs dal Republicanismeu Talossan
Seats: 46 - Popular vote percentage: 23.00% 

Despite the disappointment for not being the second biggest party anymore, I'm sure the ZRT will surely remember this election as perhaps the greatest moment in the history of Talossa after the Reunision.
They took fourtysix seats, that's two more than their first election. That election, however, was spoiled by the ESB Affaire, so this one means that election wasn't entirely faked.
Then, the ZRT will have the chance of forming a non-RUMPist government, and this party is surely the one who has urged more the need of having an entirely new government.
So yes, Xheraltescu's guys have plenty of reasons to toast to this election as the greatest ever contested in Talossa's history. Now it's up to them to accept the RUMP's invites to cooperate on reforms.

RPT - Republican Party of Talossa
Seats: 4 - Popular vote percentage: 2.00%
The Republican Party is the true loose cannon of this Election. Nobody can predict what Carbonél will do now. He may agree to flank the Time's Up Coalition in exchange for a Cabinet seat. But if the King will give a RUMPer the task to form a government, they will have to pick either the MRPT or the RPT as their coalition partner, or they could try to face the Cosa with a minority government. Anyway, they could offer Carbonél the position of Distain (which the MRPT/ZRT coalition cannot offer him) and/or support for reforms in order to gain his consent and lead another government.

b. Senators
Four Provinces have elected their Senators during this Election, and Vuode's Premier has appointed a new Senator as the previous has resigned.
Benito 
Tric'hard Carschaleir has been confirmed unopposed (if we don't count a single write-in vote for Istefan Perþonest) to the post of Senator of Benito.
Fiova
Despite ZRT's Miestra Schiva's victory over Dieter Vercaria by 4-2, a complaint to the Landsdoom has been filed by a citizen (then backed by several others) who lamented that the ProvSoS had not informed everyone about the election. Therefore, this appointment is on a standby.
Florencia
Pol d'Auribuérg (RUMP) is the new Senator of Florencia, defeating Mximo Carbonél (RPT) by 8-1. He takes now his wife Audrada's former seat.
Maricopa
Dien Tresplet (RUMP) is the new Senator for Maricopa, with a 6-3 victory on Beneditsch Ardpresteir (independent). He will now succeed to Sir Iustì Canun, who has been filling Maricopa's Senate seat for six Cosas in a row.
Vuode
Although he hasn't been elected, Sir Trotxa Betiñeir has been appointed as the new Senator of Vuode by Premier Eovart Grischun after that the previous Senator, Viteu Marcianüs, resigned his offices and quit Talossa during the Elections.

c. Provincial Assemblies
To close our lengthy analysis, let's take a look at the composition of the provincial assemblies.
Atatürk
The results of Atatürk's House of Commons elections are:
RUMP    9 seats
MRPT    4 seats
ZRT     4 seats
ANP     2 seats
With one more seat to be assigned either to the MRPT or to the ZRT. Martì-Pair Furxheir will manage the ANP's two seats, and both the MRPT and the ZRT have assigned two seats each to Evan Cuntainça and Oïn Ursüm. The nine RUMP seats currently stand unassigned.
Atatürk's next Basbakan will likely be a conservative, perhaps Martì-Pair Furxheir. No Basbakan is currently in office as after Evan Cuntainça's resignations no one has been elected or appointed.
Benito
The results of Benito's Legislative Chancellery elections are:
MRPT    10 seats
RUMP    1  seat
Lüc and Erschéveþ da Schir will have five seats each and the single RUMP seat is not assigned yet. With such a MRPTer landslide, Lüc da Schir will likely be confirmed as Maestro of Benito.
Cézembre
The results of Cézembre's L'Etats elections are:
RUMP    7 seats
MRPT    7 seats
ZRT     3 seats
IND     3 seats
Glüc da Dhi gets four seats and Alexandreu Soleiglhfred three of the seven MRPT seats. Ian da Bitour will have six RUMP seats, one is left unassigned for the moment. Moritz Fernaodescu will manage the ZRT's three seats and Litz Cjantscheir will probably hold the IND's seats, perhaps along with Ian Anglatzara.
We have no clues about the possible new Senechal as it's elected by the entire citizenry and not by l'Etats only.
Fiova
Every Fiovan has the right to take part in the General Assembly's work, no election is therefore required.
Florencia
Florencia's Nimlet seat division hasn't been done yet.
Maricopa
Every Maricopan has the right to sit in the Cleivi, no election is therefore required.
Maritiimi-Maxhestic
This is the composition of the Ninth Assembly:
RUMP    3 seats
MRPT    1 seat
Grand General Secretary Alexandreu Davinescu takes two of the three seats of the RUMP, and the other one is taken by Grand Specific Undersecretary Sir Mick Preston. Magniloqueu Epiqeu da Lhiun takes the only MRPT seat.
Vuode
Every Vuodean can claim a seat in the Estats Xhenerais, no election is therefore required.
These are the citizens that have claimed a seat so far:

  • Eovart Grischun
  • Viteu Marcianüs (he has quit Talossa, so he'll likely not receive his seat)
  • Sir Trotxa Betiñeir



That's the end of the Talossan Observer's Analysis on the January 2014 General Elections. We'll deploy our usual round of interviews shortly. A new article with the MCs for the 46th Cosa and the composition of the new Government will appear here by the end of January.
Stay tuned!

Elections of the provincial Prime Minister: Fiôvâ, Vuode-Dandenburg and Cézembre

With the provincial elections in Fiôvâ, Vuode-Dandenburg and Cézembre underway, let's have a look at the situation.
FIÔVÂ
The second Capitán election from the creation of Fiôvâ sees the outcoming ZRTer Carlüs Xheraltescu facing the NPWer Dieter Vercariâ.
Fi flag.pngXheraltescu, fresh of his nomination as Tuischac'h of the Cosâ, aims to create a League of Provinces to aggregate ideas over best practice and receiving support from the national government. Maintaining provincial autonomy, having a Cunstaval who has been approved by the provincial population first are some of the main objectives of Xheraltescu's candidacy.
Vercariâ, MC for the NPW, is the first Peculiarist since the reunision to candidate himself as provincial leader. He ran as Senator in the 44th Cosâ, being defeated by Ián Anglatzarâ and tooking the same number of votes as Miestrâ Schivâ. The sustainability of the provinces in Talossa, cooperation and eventually a merger between provinces are some of the ideas Vercariâ throws into the ring.
The election is being conducted by the Tuischac'h of the GA, Miestrâ Schivâ, by secret ballot. All the Fiovans are entitled to vote. An interview is planned to be conducted with the new Capitan.

CEZEMBRE
We have the current Whip of the MRPT Alexandreu Soleiglhfred againist the RUMPer Ián da Bitour. The outcoming Sénéchal Niclau Patici has decided not to run again. Elections are currently conducted by Glüc da Dhi with public ballot on Cézembre's section of Wittenberg.

THE UNITED PROVINCES
Two candidates for two roles: the Vuodean councillors are electing the Premier and the Presiding officer of the United Provinces. The only nomination for Premier is the one of the Scottish-Talossan Eovart Grischun, MC for the CSPP, while the Senator for Vuode-Dandenburg Marcianüs is the only one running for the post of Presiding Officer. Voting will close May 21st, with only one of five votes cast so far.

the Talossan Observer 2013-04-16 17:57:00

Elections are up, gentlemen! Let's have a look at the results.

RUMP - Rexhalistaes Unenuxhinds pr'iensa Monarc'hà Panincestind
The RUMP has won 98 seats (49,19%). This is the first time since April 2007 that the RUMP does not gain an absolute majority of seats (at least 101/200) in the Cosâ.
The party leader, S:r Pôl d'Auribuérg, hasn't announced the list of MCs yet.

ZRT - Zefençadéirs del Republicánismeu Talossán
The ZRT gained 29 seats in the Cosâ (14,52%). Party Leader Cauvesc Carlüs Xheraltescu has announced the list of MCs:
5 seats to Cauvesc Carlüs Xheraltescu (party whip?)
5 seats to Óïn Ursüm
5 seats to Miestrâ Schivâ
5 seats to Gödafrïeu Válcadác'h
4 seats to Erschéveþ Üchescu


MRPT - the Moderate-Radical Party of Talossa
The MRPT gained 21 seats in the Cosâ (10,48%), three more than last election. Party Leader Glüc da Dhi hasn't announced the official list of MCs yet, but as long as this party has previously issued a mandatory candidates list, we have this almost-official-but-still-not-confirmed list:
7 seats to Alexandreu Bisquinc (party whip)
7 seats to Lüc da Schir
7 seats to Ben Putnam

CSPP - the Common-Sense Progressive Party
The CSPP gained 21 seats in the Cosâ (10,48%), two more than last election. Curiously enough, CSPP and MRPT have taken the same amount of votes again.
Party Leader Owen Edwards has announced the list of MCs:
4 seats to Owen Edwards (party whip?)
4 seats to Eðo Grischun
4 seats to Eiric Biançeu
3 seats to Flip Molinar
3 seats to Vit Caçeir
3 seats to Daviu Lundescu


IND - the Indipendents's Party
The INDs gained 13 seats in the Cosâ. Party Leader Erschéveþ Cjantscheir hasn't announced any MCs list yet.

NPW - the New Peculiar Way
The NPW gained 11 seats in the Cosâ (5,65%). Party Leader Dieter Nanoc'hfiglhëu Vercariâ has announced the list of MCs, but not their seats, as he assigned 2,75 seats each:
? seats to Vitxalmour Conductour (party whip?)
? seats to Andreas Lorentz
? seats to Ián Txáglh
? seats to Dieter N. Vercariâ

Vitxalmour Conductour explained later, "Article VII section 3 of the Organic Law states that "Seats won by each party shall be divided by that party among its own members and supporters as it sees fit [...]". The NPW feels that all MC's should be equals, and while we cannot force our belief on other parties, within the NPW, we "see fit" to assure that our MC's are equal to each other."
The Secretary of State sir Iustí Canun hasn't answered yet, but he'll hardly accept this assignment.


LPR - le Parti Republicain
The LPR gained 7 seats in the Cosâ (3,23%). Party Leader Mximo Carbonél has assigned all the seven seats to himself, but "Any person who want a seat send me an MP.
Only condition: to have voted LPR in the last election."



More updates + Senäts and Provincial results soon!
