ROMA - General Junio Borghese unexpectectly announced a political plan today to guide Italy from military rule to civilian democracy by March 2010. Tonight, in a national broadcast watched by his countrymen, the General said five months would be needed to prepare Italy for civilian rule.

''Values do not change overnight, nor do people change old habits as if one were switching off and switching on the light. Military rule, if enforced too long in a peaceful and stable country like Italy, might bring unnecessary violence and dissent. I hereby declare myself Presidente a Vita (Life President), and start the democratization process that will return Italy to civilian rule. However, restrictions will be still enforced on anarchists and communists who will not be allowed to take part to political activities" the General said.

In five month of independence from the former Greater Nordic Reich, Italy's economy and technology level reached the standards of many Central European countries such the Rheinmark and Deutschland.

''Economy and infrastructure have been fully restored and reached the level of a first world country, our mission is almost completed'' the General said today listing the achievements of the Republican Military Government during its mandate. ''Law, Public Administration, Social Services and Investments have been perfected brilliantly by the Regime.''

Earlier today, the Government released a 200-page white paper that detailed the transition to civilian rule. The timetable provides for a constituent assembly in January, removal of a ban on party politics except communist and anarchist, regional elections and census in February, and general and local elections in March.

Italy's Constitution, adopted in 1948 but largerly reformed by the Republican Military Government, is expected to be retained largely intact. But in one major change, the number of political parties is to be limited to four. Provisions that have not changed include: a bicameral legislature (Senate and Chamber of Deputies), and a restriction limiting Prime Ministers to two terms of four months each.

In his speech, General Junio Borghese warned politicians not to try to speed up the transition.

''The Government does not recognize any sacred cow and would like to remind politicians that the ban on party or partisan politics is still very much in force,'' he said. Today, the Republican Military Government report rejected the privatization of major companies. The military also rejected ''the imposition of a political ideology on the nation. The Government believes an ideology will eventually evolve with time and a political maturity of the country,'' the report said.

General Junio Borghese also pointed Italian Somalia will remain under Italian rule, but with the guidance of Colonel Siad Barre, the colony will obtain more autonomy from Rome, and be allowed to design a new flag and a new coat of arms according to the country's history and culture.

Under the citcumstances, the Republic of Transvaal is pleased to hear that Junio Borghese will remain Life President. While the perceived threat of democratic fundimentalism in Repubblica Italiana was cause for alarm, our Government is realising that Italy is just mirroring our own republican system.

Under the citcumstances, the Republic of Transvaal is pleased to hear that Junio Borghese will remain Life President. While the perceived threat of democratic fundimentalism in Repubblica Italiana was cause for alarm, our Government is realising that Italy is just mirroring our own republican system.

With some variants and cultural differences, the Italian RMG is just the ultra nationalist version of Malan's RMG, with an additional "social" task, the task to form a nationalist spirit in a country without an "Italian" government since 2005. As the task is being achieved, the same people who created this country from ashes and destruction, will have to step down and let the country prosper in the future presided over by the new responsible political class we forged.

These monumental changes are not coming unexpectedly, for us. We think the regime was necessary to rebuild the country and forge a new Italian culture. Now the country is rebuilt, and the citizens are proud to be Italian, the political class will have to step down, with the exception of General Junio Borghese who will just leave the office of the Prime Minister to concentrate on his primary role, the Head of State, in Italy the President of the Republic. His job will mainly consist in making sure laws and decrees do not violate the constitution, he will not lose the rank of General and Commander in Chief of the Armed Force, he is still the Head of the National Defense Committee but will not retain any legislative power. Being the Father of the Fatherland, or Pater Patriae as we call him here, his guidance in the upcoming months and after the democratization process will be necessary to defend Italy from the communist and anarchist menaces.

Despite the changes, the Partito Fascista Repubblicano (Republican Fascist Party) in charge since June 2009 (From June 7 to June 15 with the name Partito Nazionale Fascista, National Fascist Party) will partecipate in regional, local and general elections.

A Democratically Elected Facist is better than just one who abuses the constitution of his lands and just takes power. Democracy extends to Authoritarian goverments: If the people wish to invest power in one man, or in our case woman, than let them eat cake! However, I recommend putting in a balance here, allowing the nation to PEACEFULLY remove someone from the office of President.

What if he does something that harms the nation or harms the people? What if he is corrupt and funnels funds? What if he sends the army to kill protesting, unarmed people? If it is not written into law, the President can do whatever he pleases. Dont assume he is all loving and caring for his people. Power Corrupts, Absolute power corrupts absolute.

General Junio Borghese would never harm his Nation, he is the founding father of the Italian Republic and his place is in the Office of the President.

You cannot assume these things! I do not argue against him being the leader, I argue the lack of control! Our leader would never intentionally harm our nation, but 3 times have we brought the THREAT a vote of no confidence in her, as a sign not to start waging war or exile people. Had those gone through and passsed, she would have been removed. These votes only apply if a majority of the Senate agree she is harming the nation.

The Presidential duties will be written in the constitution. Nothing will be left empty or open to vague statements. However, Junio Borghese is and will always be the most important Stateman this nation has ever had in its modern history, since 2005 to present, and he has the solemn duty to guide this nation trought the democratic process of transition to civilian rule.

The VIIĀ° Part of our constitution, defining the role of the President of the Republic, says:

Article 68 [Presidential Duties]

(1) The president is head of state and represents the unity of the nation.

(2) The president may send messages to parliament.

(3) He calls parliamentary elections and sets the date of their first meeting.

(4) He authorizes the government's legislative initiatives.

(5) He promulgates laws and issues decrees with the force of law as well as government regulations.

(6) He call a referendum when provided for by the constitution.

(7) He appoints state officials as provided by the laws.

(8) He accredits and receives diplomatic representatives, ratifies international treaties once they are authorized by parliament, provided parliamentary approval is necessary.

(9) He is the commander of the armed forces and chairman of the supreme defense council constituted by law; he declares war according to the decision of the parliament.

(10) He chairs the superior council of the judiciary.

(11) He has the power to grant pardons and commute punishments.

(12) He confers the honors of the republic.

General Junio Borghese is still trusted and supported by the majority of its people and there is no need to put restrictions on him. If the wheels are moving towards democracy is thanks to his efforts and his own initiative. He can controls his temper and would never take a decision that would harm the Italian people or the Republic, for example he would never mobilize against a country for ideological reasons and challenging the entire international community with little or no support on his side.

That's why Italy is still on her feet, stronger than ever. The reason he will not leave or asked to leave the office of the President is because he is the only man capable of representing the nation without provoking any harm to the nation itself and the citizens. He is not part of either the legislative or executive branches. He will approve or reject the laws proposed and approved by the Parliament if they conflict with an article or a principle expressed in the constitution.

Nice dig at our goverment. Being subtle is key for leaders. While I strongly recommend you put something in there, just in case, It is your decision. What about if he is incapacitated? Who, if anyone, takes over? Or will these powers be removed in the event a new president is chosen?

In the case of permanent inability or death, his duties are carried out by the speaker of the senate ad interim, until a new President is elected by the parliament.
