Vauleo-Buryatian Election begins

Prop2.png

“Election season in Vauleo-Buryatia has begun with much fanfare today. Voting across the country will begin in the next few hours in what is promised to be a hotly contested election with a record voter turnout.

As always, BCNA has organized a press conference so that members of the local and international press can ask questions of each of the Presidential candidates before the election. Facilities are in place to permit the transmission of questions via telephone, fax, internet and text message.

In the Presidential race, the incumbent President Trubachev took the surprising decision to run as an Independent candidate after failing to gain the nomination of his party, the SDP. The Social Democratic Party has thrown its weight behind its new leader Dr. Miroslav Anyatevich. With all 1500 seats in Parliament up for grabs, the SDP needs to hold onto at least 750 seats if it wishes to retain control of the Legislature and avoid the need to form a coalition.

Also of note is the referendum question asking voters if the government should abolish the monarchy.”-Reporter

"A question for all candidates--what is your position on education within your nation? Is there anything that needs to be changed to improve it? If so, what? If not, why?"

“Education in Vauleo-Buryatia is in drastic need of an update. There needs to be a reformed curriculum for all schools that includes a Buryatian-centric approach to education at all levels. Too long have we used an education system that has glossed over the tragedies of history and is severely biased towards the previous occupying regime. There is also an unwillingness to confront these previous issues, which cannot and should not occur. We also need to eliminate the practice of having schools instruct in Russian alongside Vauleo-Buryatian. Other than this, there is nothing else that is in need of change in the Vauleo-Buryatian education system “–Natalya Zhukova (BLP)

“The main problem with Vauleo-Buryatia’s education system is a lack of sufficient funding to certain areas, particularly the liberal arts and social sciences fields. I must acknowledge that we have an excellently structured and easily accessible education system.“-Altan-enkh (DPV)

“As President I have been deeply committed to improving the education system in this country. Throughout my tenure we have consistently increased funding to all sectors, we have constantly reviewed and updated curricula and programs in keeping with changes. We have built hundreds of new schools, and raised the quality of both the infrastructure and the education available at our schools significantly. The implementation of the Schools and Regions Act, which would make it a criminal offense for any child not to be sent to school would be a high priority of mine, should I be elected to a second term in office.” -Victor Trubachev (Independent)

“At present we have one of the best education systems in the world. Literacy has stood at 100% for the past 10 years, access to education has expanded to 99.6% of the Vauleo-Buryatian population and the number of highly trained and qualified teachers in the education system has more than doubled in the past 5 years. There is still some work to be done. We need to completely standardize all schools across the board to a single government approved curriculum. We need to increase funding in several areas including infrastructure to keep up with the demands on our educational institutions”-Miroslav Anyatevich (SDP)

"What are your views of the Malvinas Islands, the Umbrella Corporation, the disaster at Porton Down and the very recent spree of murders springing up around the settlements of CITY 17?" said an Umbrella Corp News reporter.

"To all candidates" he asked quickly

“As the Malvinas Islands are neither in Eurasia or Oceana, we see no reason to hold any position towards their government. As for the murders you speak of, we see that as an internal matter to be dealt with by whatever authority runs the Malvinas”-Natalya Zhukova (BLP)

“While we see the government of the Malvinas as being a positive global citizen, a number of decisions on the part of this government have caused us to question its motives and intentions.”-Altan-enkh (DPV)

“No comment”- Trubachev (Independent)

“I choose not to comment on matters that are the internal affairs of a nation that we have no diplomatic ties with”-Anyatevich (SDP)

"How do you feel about the FRA/Troina MDP/FTA and also Troina itself?" asked a Troinan news reporter. (OOC: The question goes to all candidates)

“We are not in a position to comment on a treaty between two nations that we don’t have diplomatic ties with due to a lack of information regarding the treaty and the signatories.”-all candidates

A few questions to all candidates.

1. What is your position on poverty and social equality?

2. What do you expect to be your general position in regards to Foreign Affairs?

3. Would you be willing to cooperate with the Phoenix Empire on Military and/or Economic matters?

“It is my belief that poverty and social inequality may only be truly addressed when the government seeks to protect the vulnerable and aid the downtrodden by providing them the opportunities needed to advance and better their situation. We remain decidedly committed to the ‘Look East’ approach to foreign affairs and will retain this policy for the foreseeable future. I would have to say that I could not support military cooperation with a non-Asian nation. I would not rule out limited economic cooperation as long as this cooperation takes into account the political and cultural system that exists in Vauleo-Buryatia.”-Trubachev (Independent)

“I share President Tubachev’s position on poverty and social inequality wholeheartedly. In the realm of foreign affairs, I am more than willing to liberalize our foreign policy aims however they will be guided, to an extent by the ‘Look East’ policy. Regarding cooperation between the Phoenix Empire, I would approve of economic cooperation, but military cooperation is absolutely out of the question due to the Phoenix Empire’s location.”-Anyatevich

First results:

With just over 10% of the vote counted, Miroslav Anyatevich (SDP) is far ahead with almost 93% of the vote, compared to his main rival President Trubachev who trails him in a distant second with 3%. For the Legislature, it appears that the Nationalist party has a small lead over the Social Democrats, but this lead is expected to decline as more of the traditional SDP regions report their results.

Breaking News: Final Results are in

"We interrupt your regularly scheduled programming to announce the results of the election. We sincerely apologize to any member of the press who asked questions that remained unanswered at this time.

First, to the Presidential race. The SDP's candidate Miroslav Anyatevich, demolished all other Presidential candidates to win the election by the largest margin in the modern history of Vauleo-Buryatia. President-elect Anyatevich gained 92.5% of the vote pulling far ahead of all of his contenders. In a distant second, with 3% was the Incumbent Victor Trubachev. Mr. Altan-enkh and Dr. Zhukova polled 2.5% and 2% respectively. This decisive win by the SDP also was evident in the election of MPs to the Great People's Khural.

Of the 1500 seats up for election in the Great People's Khural, the SDP managed to gain a hefty 975 seats giving them a whopping 65% of the seats in the legislature. The Democratic Party of Vauleo-Buryatia (DPV) was the largest opposition party gaining 330 seats, while the United Nationalist Party (UNP) and the Buryatian Liberation Party (BLP) gained 60 and 45 seats respectively. Additionally, there were 45 Independent MPs who were elected to Parliament.

It is expected that, despite their small numbers in Parliament, the Democratic Party will attempt to from a coalition with the Nationalists and the Independent MPs for a slightly more influential 435 seats in Parliament. Regardless of the size of the coalition formed, it is clear that the SDP will dominate the Legislature at least until the next election cycle. As for President Trubachev, he is expected to formally turn over power to President-elect Anyatevich early next week. Surprisingly, despite losing the Presidency, Mr. Trubachev managed to be narrowly elected as an Independent MP in his home town in Aldan Province.

In the national referendum on abolishing the monarchy, the voters of Vauleo-Buryatia voted narrowly to retain the monarchy with 53% against dissolution and 43% against, with 4% of votes ejected.

The Great People's Khural will hold its first session tomorrow as President-elect Anyatevich is expected to name his cabinet of Ministers as well as his nomination to replace the Governor of the Autonomous region of Novaya Zemlya."-Reporter
