His Excellency, the head-of-state Staatspresident Botha has therefore called for a National Election to determine the next [b]Prime Minister of the Republic of Transvaal[/b] and representation for the 6th Session of the National [i]Volksraad[/i]. [i]TERMS OF OFFICE: June 1st 2010 to November 30th 2010[/i] The office of Prime Minister is open to any party candidate of the white Afrikaner race. All citizens of the Republic of Transvaal regardless of race residing in the Republic may vote for Prime Minister. [IMG]http://i39.tinypic.com/z30ao.jpg[/IMG] [b]Annetjie VAN MATTEUS[/b] (National Party – incumbent) In office since April 30, 2009 and former prime minister in office in May-June 2007. Deposed by military coup in 2007 after publicly executing one of her ministers on television. Later tried for alleged treasonous involvement during the GOONS war but acquitted by the courts. Regarded to be a neo-fascist outside of the unabashed racist groups like [i]Verwoerd Front[/i] but generally supports the current republic format and has adopted a more conciliatory, moderate approach during her current term in office. She resigned from the National Party after H Strijdom became prime minister in October 2008 and later formed the Martens Party of Transvaal as a far-right opposition group alternate to the [i]Verwoerd Front[/i]. After the invasion of Transvaal during the Karma War, she dissolved the Martens Party and reconciled her differences with H Strijdom when she rejoined the National Party and with whom she conspired to force the RMG to resign and restore civilian rule. Subsequently appointed prime minister by Field Marshal P Malan when the Republican Military Government resigned and returned to their barracks. She managed Transvaal’s atomic bomb programme during Strijdom's government and successfully detonated the nation’s first atomic weapon on Bouvet Island. [IMG]http://i41.tinypic.com/1scn6c.jpg[/IMG] [b]Hendrik STRIJDOM[/b] (National Party) held governor posts in Namibia and Transvaler Suid-Amerika previous to being named prime minister after JM Hertzog’s resignation. Prime Minister of Transvaal from October 2008 until February 2009. Responsible for negotiating an end to the war in Paraguay and Transvaal's withdrawl from South America. During his term as prime minister Strijdom expanded the [i]Seemag [/i][Navy], increased government spending in the civilian sector, created an National Earth Day to help improve awareness to the nation’s environment, clamped down on radicals both leftist and rightist, and developed Transvaal’s nuclear weapons programme. Became Foreign Minister during the Republican Military Government and co-Deputy Prime Minister in Van Matteus’ government. [img]http://i36.tinypic.com/209k3v8.jpg[/img] [b]Jakob Martin HERTZOG[/b] (National Party independent) – former prime minister of Transvaal, the longest serving prime minister in the nation’s history, governed over two successive terms from November 2007 until his resignation on October 2008 and then briefly again from February to April 2009 when his government then collapsed during the Karma War. During his three terms in office, Transvaal’s population tripled in size and he successfully managed the painful economic transformation from Maroon to the Orange trading sphere. Due to his difficulty speaking English, foreign policy has generally a critical, weak aspect of his rule and he took the fall for leading the nation into a disastrous colonial adventure in South America. During his time in office he built 4 labour camps, legalized the [i]Nederduits Gereformeerde Kerk[/i] (Dutch Reformed Church), re-annexed Cherokee Namibia, withdrew from Angola (later re-annexed), joined the Pan-African Coalition, constructed the [i]Transvaler Seemag[/i] and began technology deals with Franzharia. His government handed out R$20.5 million in foreign aid while receiving R$9 million in return. During the Republican Military Government, he led the opposition faction within the National party in alliance with the DBP. His legacy and political position is reflected by Transvaal’s period spent in Orange and IRON and is opposed the nation’s re-affiliation with Nordreich. He is viewed as leading the so-called left-progressive wing of the National Party favouring more political involvement of Transvaal’s non-white citizens - and while maintaining membership within the National party, he now follows an independent course and often opposes official party policies. [img]http://i36.tinypic.com/fxxg4.jpg[/img] [b]Marthinus HOFMEYR[/b] (National Party) Minister of Finance, Trade & Education. Advocates government spending to increase the technology level in Transvaal and was responsible for carrying out most of Transvaal’s post-war reconstruction. Not much is known about his politics and is viewed as middle of the road and un-ambitious compared to Strijdom and Van Matteus. [img]http://i35.tinypic.com/21j242w.jpg[/img] [b]Frederik GELDENHUYS[/b] ([i]Demokratiese Barakke Party[/i]) Leader of the Democratic Drillhall Party which admires Field Marshal Cruywagen and favours the involvement of progressive elements within the Transvaler military to participate in running the government so as to remove the threat of white supremacists in Transvaler society. Since the end of the Republican Military Government, the DBP has lost influence as the Verwoerd Front fizzled out and many civilians opposed the re-involvement of the military in domestic politics regardless of ideology. [img]http://i37.tinypic.com/2mwt54z.jpg[/img] Field Marshal [b]Petrus MALAN[/b] (independent) - Former junta leader of the Republican Military Government which governed the nation during the Karma War and post-war reconstruction period. His legacy is the adoption of a controversial immigration law (which consequently has never been repealed) to inflate the number of white citizens in Transvaal by limiting immigration to whites and promoting birth control amongst African citizens. He voluntarily resigned as leader of the RMG which returned the nation to full civilian rule at the end of April 2009. He had held the post of Ambassador to Repubblica Italiana and is currently Commander of the [i]Transvaler Raketkops[/i] [Rocket Corps] and maintains Transvaal's small nuclear weapon arsenal.[/color] Edited May 17, 2010 by Botha Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
