[center][size="4"]The third presidential elections for the Republics of Newfoundland and Labrador.[/size][/center]

"Good morning to those on the islands, and the mainland, of Newfoundland and Labrador. As you may know by now, our old President Dominic Johnson decided to give up power of being president after suffering from a unfortunate accident. As such, this will mark the third presidential election. Here are the candidates; Aodhan Quilan of the New States Party, Danny Williams of the Newfoundland&Labrador First Party, Françoise Rode of the Newfoundland&Labrador Socialist Party, and Ern Condon of the Labrador Party. The polls will open soon, and will last for some two weeks. During these two weeks, we, and the international community, will get to interview the candidates from time to time. Now, here's a brief outline of the parties."

[size="5"]Live from St. John Newfoundland and Labrador, this is to be the next presidential debates![/size]

Moderator "Welcome to St. John, where the people of Newfoundland and of Labrador, as well as those from outside of the republic, will get to ask our candidates questions that they feel are of concern for our nation. The subject of our economy I feel should be what we get to talk about first. Many feel that our unemployment is too high for us. Gentlemen, what is your take on this?


Aodhan Quilan "Well, I have to agree that our unemployment is too high. I think that to help lower it, and at the same time help those who suffer from it, we should fund charity programs to help those in need, as well as hire people to staff such programs and even let in some volunteers. I think we should even help fund such programs from our government treasury."

Danny Williams "I must agree with Mr. Quilan. We should help fund some charities. But I don't believe that will fix most of our problems. I think what we could do is open a few more mines in Labrador, where most of the unemployment is. That will create more jobs for both the building of the and workers of the mines. And with that, more wealth will be made, and be available to be spent, which will help increase our economy and lower our unemployment. As well as more resources for us to sell on our markets."

Françoise Rode "Danny, you seem to have forgot to mention that with those mines, there's more of a risk of a disaster, and illness. I say we do as Mr. Quilan said. Along with with more social programs to help ease the burden of those unemployed and or in poverty. If we could do that, we could allow these people to spend as they need to, which would also create jobs."

Jimmy Tuttauk "Mr. Rode, why would we need more social programs? They just bankrupt everyone involved if such programs get too large, and the people too dependent. Being from Labrador, I can tell you that we do need the jobs. And the resources in our region can provide all that and more. sure, there's a risk of accidents happening. That's life, there's risk everywhere we go. I can assure you, that we'll try to the best of our ability to protect our workers.

Federation press would question the candidates on foreign affairs, especially towards the Canadian sphere of nations. Plus, views on foreign companies doing investments in the republic. Beyond that, the government of the Hudson Bay Federation watches the upcoming elections with quiet interest.

A member of the J Andres press core would pose the following question for Aodhan Quilan: "And how would you propose to sustain such a large portion of the economy through charitable giving? You insist that the governmental funds can support these charities, but jobs are required to provide income to the government. Do you see these charitable programs as a permanent fixture in the government's role to provide for it's citizens, or a temporary one to help your people through a rough patch?"

Moderator "Candidates, As questioned by the Hudson Bay press on our foreign affairs and etc, how will you four respond?"

Aodhan Quilan "Our foreign affairs to most, and including those of the Canadian and otherwise north American nations is to have friendly relations with them. With pacts and treaties with (currently) a few of the Canadian nations, being the Hudson Bay, and Greenland.

Ern Condon "I think we tried to send something to Quebec that so far remained unanswered. I'm not exactly sure on the details of that tho.

Danny Williams "Yes, it would make sense for us to remain friendly with these nations in the sphere on Canada and north America. Our military, like any-other in the world, can only handle so much. Better to try to remain on friendly terms, than angry fire.

Françoise Rode "I think it would help us all more, however, if we lost our semi-isolation stance. To what I know, we hold three treaties, with only two of them from the region of north America."

Aodhan Quilan "Françoise, that's a much better idea than previous thoughts you may have had. I think we should do as you said."

Ern Condon "I feel we had that semi-isolation stance for a reason. However, I do agree that a few more friends in north America would be great for us, but to others, we should keep a mostly neutral stance.

Danny Williams "I have to concur with Ern, a semi-isolation stance has worked well for us. I feel it even got us out of wars, aswell as the problem of choosing sides. I don't think we need more treaties, as they will pull us closer to some random war with some nation we would be less than prepared to fight against.

Moderator "Fellows, the second question now. Regarding foreign companies investments in our republic."

Aodhan Quilan "I believe we have always allowed foreign investments in our republic. Actually, I think I heard a rumor from somewhere that our government was going to sell off some of the lands in Labrador, to resource extraction companies. I say, let them have what they want, to the extent of not taking too much land."

Danny Williams "Other than a few regulations, and a few more for any new mines in Labrador, I think we should do as we always have, let most foreign companies work and invest here, should they choose to. And to Aodhan, I think we're already doing that."

Françoise Rode "I think that as long as the companies behave as kindly as they have been so-far, and follow our regulations, I'm alright with the presence of foreign companies' investments here. So long also that they agree to follow our laws, and try to help the people with their profits. And to Danny, as it is true we are already allowing foreign companies to set up in Labrador, I think Aodhan was speaking of this on a somewhat bigger scale."

Ern Condon "On a much larger scale my friend. We plan to lease a good piece of the land for resource extraction. If we could do such, I think he could truly help out the region's people."

Françoise Rode "I hope not too much land will be sold, as those mines harm nature during their run, and after.

Moderator "A member from the J Andres press core has asked a new question, for Mr. Quilan. Mr. Quilan, how will you answer this?"

Aodhan Quilan "I think that if we could encourage our citizens to give something to those who truly need the money to pay their bills and taxes, that the people may be alright to do so, so long as it is truly needed. I would not say however that it will be a large portion of our economy, but just big enough to help those who would need it. I believe that government funds can help support such charities, and I believe that these will mostly be temporally, as to help those who happen to be in a rough time. And for those who need the money, with such, they would be able to spend their money on what they need, and encouraged to save what would be left for when they would need it."

Moderator "Françoise Rode, you seem to be leading the latest polls. Tell us, why do you think this is so?"


Françoise Rode "I think it's because of what I stand for. The international community may also recognize this I believe. They want a Newfoundland and Labrador that is able to both grow, and provide for their citizens. Our citizens want a nation that is as concerned with keeping them well feed and having jobs, as we are with our latest space program. And I think they and I believe that what I have in mind may help grow our economy, to rival that of other nations, and to increase our number of jobs to help grow that economy, as well as providing programs for our citizens who need the extra cash to make it in life. And my vision, as they believe, is what they want to see happen. I look forward to trying to bring Newfoundland and Labrador into the future. And I look forward to being your next elected president."

[b]Despite Socialist party losing ground in our senate, Françoise Rode of that vary party makes it as president[/b]

"Today, Françoise Rode of the Newfoundland&Labrador Socialist Party has been elected as our next president of Newfoundland and Labrador. As the people have chosen, other parties have taken our senate. And with the Socialist party just hanging on to controlling the majority of it, one of their people, being Françoise Rode, has managed to convince a majority of the people into letting him take office. We can hope that this Mr. Rode can make this nation as great as it can be, and to make it more perfect."

"Today, shall be a great day for us!", Françoise Rode would say in his acceptance speech, "Today, we shall stand for what we believe in. Before me, I see a nation that years ago, wasn't. I see a nation that has since then grew in terms of its economy, as well as land, with its acquiring Labrador. And with my guidance, I hope to bring Newfoundland and Labrador future prosperity, so that we will grow stronger."

(out of 265,318 registered voters.)

Aodhan Quilan of the New States Party: 3.9% of the popular vote

Danny Williams of the Newfoundland&Labrador First Party: 23.6%

Françoise Rode of the Newfoundland&Labrador Socialist Party : 53%
