329.05 // Senate Factions Revolt Against Chief of State

For several terms, the current Chief of State has ruled with the support of a Senate majority. However, the current leadership of the Republic, and it’s longstanding mandate, have been challenged as senate factions reorganize to form a new coalition of affiliate members. This news comes at terrible timing, as political leaders of the Republic continue to struggle with the flu crisis in the core.

The coalition is lead by a long time opponent of the current elected body, Senator Kel Farlen of Onderon. Farlen, so far, has refused to vote in favour of a single piece of legislation proposed by the current Chief of State’s legislative board. Though, what comes as a major shock, according to political commentators, is the decision to place former Jedi Knight Rita Sandria, Senator of Corellia, as the deputy leader of the new coalition, titled the “United Republic Coalition”.

There is much speculation as to Senator Sandria’s reasons for betraying her once political allies, as she was formerly a member of factions backing the current Chief of State. It has been said Senator Farlen and Senator Sandria primarily bonded over their contempt for the Jedi Order and the need to increase military funding.

Other notable members of the coalition include Senator Karssk of Trandosha and Senator Tex Liezal of Iridonia.

Ithorian Senator Morat Hoorza has described this alliance as “horribly dysfunctional” and predicts internal battles will cause it to disband before the next election. However, this move by Senator Farlen and Senator Sandria has significantly increased their popularity back on their homeworlds, ensuring that their seats in the Senate will at least be safe for another term.

328.27 // A Cold War?

coruscant
The Republic continues to face difficult challenges with the secession of several Republic systems and the failing struggle to eradicate the dangerous outbreaks of illness in significant core systems. Consequential signs of envy for the New Empire, have risen, as Imperial systems reportedly enjoy better economic and political stability since their separation at the end of the Attrition Wars.

In addition, the Empire is superior militaristically. Their arsenal and technology are grandiose compared to our own. It leaves many systems uncertain of safety in the case of a possible war between the New Empire and Republic. Not to mention life sustainability against this dreadful disease that plagues the core.

Even though the battle seems inevitable, as the Empire flaunts their military and diplomatic power at opportunity, the Republic doesn’t seem remotely interested in fighting. They have made no effort to rival the Empire’s technology and prowess.

It leaves many questioning why the Republic and not the Empire?

Delmi-Simus

Newly promoted Jedi Masters Delmi N’Jork and Simus Cnydaria with Jedi Master Sebastin Creed

 

Today the Order recognises the dedication and contributions made by Jedi Knights Simus Cnydaria and Delmi N’Jork, by granting them the rank of Jedi Master. Both have spent many years learning the ways of the force and passing on that knowledge to both students and peers. While this will always be so, the Order is proud to acknowledge their successes and ask them to continue their hard work, leading by example.

328.03 // Ord Biniir and Ord Canfre Secede!

Galactic Senate Background

 

Breaking news from the Senate, in another session which was heavily dominated by the growing concerns of the flu epidemic, the representatives of both Ord Biniir and Ord Canfre announce the decision to break away from the Republic.

Information suggests both systems are angling to join the Empire, who have reportedly been more efficient in countering what little cases of flu they have. While no one can fault the decision to switch allegiances for the betterment of their people, some have not taken too kindly to the move which further damages the image of the Republic. However, no official switch has been made, as both systems remain neutral.

The Senate waits with bated breath to see if any other systems leave, causing what looks to be the beginnings of a time of anxiety and hysteria.

327.29 // Possible Health Crisis | Budgeting Inefficiencies

Coruscant Senate Chambers

At an open session in the Senate, the Secretary for Health, Kov Glorin, advised the Chief of State cases of individuals with flu symptoms have vastly increased to the point of intolerance. With the expectation more antibiotics will boost immune systems in those primarily vulnerable, such as children and elderly citizens, concerns are the cost of production may spin out of control in the process of fighting and containing this flu.

As the economy gradually recovers from the War, fears of possible costs on this scale could deliver a crippling blow to reconstruction. However, with the rise of people seeking medical aid for long periods of fever like symptoms, it’s been suggested the Galaxy could be facing a wide spread epidemic.

The Senate has begun to investigate and scrutinize these cases more closely prior to making any calls of labeling the growing concern as a ‘plague crisis’. It has been rumored other systems will be approached as it’s believed this may become a shared problem for every system in the known Galaxy.
