Republic Chancellor Resigns

March 8, 2012

Reporters Daana Kira and Rakiko Lowtide travelled to Bakura to speak with former Chancellor Baccus Altus.

Rumours were spreading quickly that the Republic’s Chancellor had quit, so we were quite pleased to receive a notice from Baccus Altus to set up a meeting and talk about what had actually transpired. We were able to meet him with along with former Bothawui Senator for former chancellor as well Talia Kristan on Bakura. Starting out the interview, Baccus Altus did confirm that he resigned from the Chancellorship due to stress from the position and that several of his recent decisions had been unpopular with the senate.

Surprisingly he placed Master Jedi Panelope Vella to oversee his duties because the vice-chancellor; the Vice Chancellor Muuonigar Muhindra, hasn’t been heard from for almost a year. Also one of his last acts was to name Ryan Adams as Minister of Defence. He’ll now be working with him to make sure the Republic is secure.

Senator Talia Kristen also conveyed the stress from working in the Senate. Se herself has returned to her home planet of Bakura where she sits in the local systems parliament.

As for the future of the Galactic Senate and when elections will be held, hopefully the next meeting will answer these questions. Also several systems have been waiting to enter the Republic such as Bengat, Ukio, and Orto Pluntonia. However, the Chancellor was under the impression that Ukio had been voted in as a member.

    Wait a second… A jedi master as chancellor? That’s a really, really bad idea. I suppose master Panelope realized that she shouldn’t be there, and she should give the seat to someone else

    The seat is not given to her; she is merely stewarding the seat til the election. If a new chancellor were to be appointed then there would be no use in having an election and therefore be against the GSoNR’s own constitution. Normally if I chancellor resigns the Vice is to take the position til the next election. Since he is no longer about it seems that is why I nominated Master Vella (a respected and a trusted member of the advisory council) to steward the seat til either elections are done or Vice-Chancellor Muuonigar Muhindra returns.

      Why not a senator and a JEDI advisor? Was no senator capable to keep a period the chancellor place?

    To the position as Baccus clearly stated to those incapable of reading a simple holo new network. The Position of Chancellor is one that is no easy task, there are more responsibilities then you could imagine, there is also the constant interaction with the intolerable. Such as people who can not read.

    Jedi advisers have always been apart of the Senate dating back to the era of the Grand Old Republic.

    (( Just a thought: someone who has been missing for nearly a year probably shouldn’t have the second highest position in the Republic. It isn’t realistic even in an IC setting – and I don’t know whether Muuonigar’s absence is IC or OOC/RL related – as they would be replaced for the sake of proper Government. So it might be a good idea for the new Chancellor, whoever that proves to be, to chose a new VC ))

      ((One year is the in-world time I suppose. The New Republic itself is one year old in real time (January 2011). The Vice chancellor is unseen since several months now, without giving news as far as I know, but the senate is often secretive. It’s not the first time a vice chancellor is missing in action and not quickly replaced. This may pose problem only when both group leaders are off.))

    (( Even so [ assuming an IC year ], can you imagine the Vice President of USA being missing for a year, without being replaced? What I was saying was either OOC or IC an absence that long isn’t especially realistic for an important government. They say the VP is ‘one heartbeat away from being President’ [ i.e. if something happens to the President ], and I would imagine the same goes for the Chancellor of the Republic. For the reason that can be seen now with the Chancellor resigning, this is a situation the Republic should not allow to occur ))

    I’m hoping that the next chancellor of the Republic is actually done by vote. After all this is a Republic, you know…democracy. Also hopefully this new Chancellor will be able to show more then vaccilation over issues that are on-going in the galaxy.

    Course if the chancellor’s office actually decided to work with it’s intelligence branch, perhaps things wouldn’t have devolved to this point.
