Plan to Re-Establish a Consitutional Monarchy on Bakura

March 11, 2012

After receiving information from a GAR trooper about plan to reorganise Bakura’s government, reporters Daana Kira and Rakiko Lowtide met with local parliament member Talia Kristan.

Talia Kristan is no stranger to politics, having served as senator from Bothawui where she was also an heir to the royal family, as the Republic Chancellor for a short period, and as a Bakuran Parliament member, a position she currently holds. However, we were able to catch up with her to speak about plans to re-organise the Bakuran government.

Talia Kristan explaining the new form of government in the works on Bakura.

Miss Kristan held a public conference earlier whereby the announcements was made that Bakura would return to its heritage of having a monarchy. The project is supported by members of the local Senate like the senator Spantiz. Stating that the current government was very weak to do anything and with the Prime Minister not having made a public appearance in some time, that a new system of a constitutional monarchy, similar to that of Naboo’s would be instituted.Under this system the citizens would still vote for the legislature, but would also vote for an executive that would be made into a monarch, either a queen or king who would administer the executive duties for their time in office. Miss Kristan stated this would put the government back into the hands of the people.

Also GAR would have the ability to oversee this monarch with the power to remove them if they began to turn into a dictatorship. They would also hold a seat on a council that would be working with the monarch and legislative body. For the change over, all the current politicians and appointed officials would keep their jobs, just under the hierarchy of the new system. GNN will keep abreast of the situation to see how the system is truly instituted and when elections will be held for the new positions.

    Sounds very intrigueing these developments in Bakura. I wish the best for the people of Bakura and in their decision. If this is what the people want, I am all for it. Talia is a great leader of the people. She is strong, deligent, and a fighter for the people.

    I wish her the best, always.

    Talia for a constitutional queen huh? Well at least this would do something to keep GAR in line, at least I hope so.

    I wish her well in this endeavour,however with the Republic seeming very weak right now.I’d have preferred to hear news concerning the now vacant Chancellorship.

      Keep GAR in line? It would seem GAR already has the reigns given that they’re permitted, according to the article, to remove the monarch if it turns into a dictatorship. Essentially, at least to me, that means “we don’t agree with you, get out.”

      Why not just give GAR full control and turn it into the police state it’ll undoubtedly become?

    General, it is not as simple as that. The Grand Army do not have the authority to dictate over the Government, for example say if the King/Queen declares that all citizens shall pay higher rates, and the reason being i want more money.. The Grand army Clone Council has the authority to vote on electorate to have the current Monarch removed if they have the evidence of that monarch being corrupt. Not if the Grand Army has a bad day and that Monarch is in the firing line.

      Fair enough then, I suppose. I will certainly watch with interest. Though I do advise the Monarchy to proceed with caution. Not because of the Empire, but because of the people they will serve.

    Why on earth, are we going back to a ridiculous system? Why are we abandoning our longstanding government system, because a few people could not apply for the elections that were called at-least two standard months BEFORE our Prime Minister went missing in action? A monarchy is not our heritage, a government with a Prime Minister is our heritage! Talia is not even a parliamentary member!

    Why should us Bakuran people have to put up with being under another dictatorship while our true government operates from the shadows again? Did the rule of Ma’at teach us nothing? WE NEED to vote for our NEW Prime Minister, considering its still open for elections and the current government is a caretaker government!
