Galactic Senate debate on the Defence Reform

May 28, 2012

Galactic News was invited to follow the senate meeting, in a new secret location.

The Galactic Senate met exceptionally out of Coruscant. The reason was the senate building structures were damaged during an attack and the security was not assured. The new location was not published, suggesting other meetings would happens there in the future.

By Chancellor Downz’ invitation, the Jedi Master Catherine Umino made a report on the padawan kidnapping issues in Yavin 4. Apparently they stopped, even if a Jedi adept was briefly held half a dozen of days ago without harm.

New Senate Room

The Senator Shan Connell of Bengat reported the arrest of Mortem, followed by his escape during a raid of the New Confederacy. The Vice-Chancellor Ta’kara said he had talked about the alliance between the New Confederacy and the Obsidian Dominion with the Sith Empire’s support.

The Chancellor Downz then detailed the two points the Senator Vandergraff of Velmor, missing at the meeting, was worked on. The first was a press bill establishing a pass to attend to the senate meeting. It might simplify the access since the journalist wouldn’t have to negotiate with each guard. It would also ease the access for other media, at least if they know where and when the Senators meet. The bill also refer to closed sessions although without defining a criterium. By the way, the bill was unanimously voted.

The next part was an amendment to the constitution related to the defence. According the Senator Vandergraff’s message it would give an official status for miscellaneous militias, the Grand Army of the Republic, the New Republic Grand Fleet, the Senate Guards. The text would also manage the military operation from the Jedi Order in the Republic, the Senator reported she had seen them “(acting) without cause or need.” The article is expected to dampen the disagreement between all the existing bodies.

Xena Silvercloud, a representative from Bakura objected the decision related to the Grand Army and stated it should be agreed by their Clone Council. Link Algoma from Tython reproached this text to place the Jedi under the Chancellor’s command. The Jedi Master Sari Khandr did not see the Jedi inserted in a chain of command. Because of the length of this debate, the session was adjourned.

After the meeting end, the Chancellor Downz was disappointed by Naboo‘s earlier comments, which he said refused the help they offered. He noted the Grand Army of the Republic was present to protect the Swoop Race. The Vice Chancellor Ta’kara Darkmoon will work to organise a meeting with representative of Naboo, the Republic and the GAR.

In other news, the Senator Nasaji Oba from Tython was released and is currently recovering.

    I am happy to see so many continuing to work for the betterment of all of those within the new republic. What I am not happy is hearing that there was a known terrorist in the room during this meeting. Whether in disguise or incognito, this is a huge breach. No matter what excuses are given, you cannot wash the past of ones terror on the galaxy, no matter the face they use today or tomorrow.

    Be warned citizens that an enemy of the new republic, walked into this room with the chancellor. It is unclear but to the civilian people, it seems the chancellor may be working with the enemy behind the scenes.

    Citizens we must up-rise against this and continue to tell our leaders that the past cannot be forgotten, no matter the mask one wears. To completely not see that only means that the republic may end up in the hands of our enemy, the chancellor handing it over to them.

    The citizens of the new republic are watching, and are very concerned.

      I doubt any rumors you heard are true, nor is it rational to start a rebellion or some form of movement based on rumors you heard. I really suggest you be less vague and use a little more then rumors at least. Or you can run for Senator of your planet, and then run for Chancellor after this term and hope to win. But saying things as silly as “I heard the Chancellor is friends with terrorists, there’s no evidence but we need to fight this!” is making you look foolish. Oh and I heard you ARE a terrorist, I have no evidence, but you know, the citizens of the New Republic are watching you, and are very concerned.

      (( I want it to be clear that the person that is being talked about was actually in the room as a different character. Just because they are a member of one group does not mean they are in the room as that group. You need to stop metagaming. ))

    I would say to our Citizens in the New Republic that if they are to speak of such issues, then please have evidence to back it up. That is how democracy works. I would question your status, you sound more like a trouble causer. And as a former Senator of the New Republic and now serving Governor of the Susefvi colony i can say the citizens of the New Republic support the Senate and the Chancellor as they have now opened most senate meeting to the media, but if a situation comes up where, for example, the Chancellor may be at suspect of wrong doing against the New Republic then we as a system would recognize this and deal with it accordingly.

    ((May I just quickl;y address that, as ooc nonsense, as the person you are refering to Hans Starsider, was actually there ICly as a member of a media company and not as ANY of his normal characters. Angel Paramour, we tried telling you this serveral times and each time you refused to listen and continued to mix ooc with IC which again you have done here. ))

    (( Chancellor, I have no idea where you are going about accusing me of doing things I have not done. Please do not muddle my name in your mouth ooc. In regards of the so called Hans Strider, in all honestly i think it does look very bad from an ooc standpoint. I cannot mix ic with ooc btw as I was not there and only heard from it through other sources that are legit. ))

    a holo image of a small, blue skinned woman dressed in armor and robes, shakes her head as she begins speaking,” I do hope the senate and its members can work through the political issues at hand. It is nice to see the senate wanting more equality and unity. In this time of war it is needed to stay a strong force, to remain strong for the new republic and the many people that are counting on their leaders.

    Thank you and may the senate continue being a champion of unity and justice for all the new republic.”

    A yawn escaped the individual, as if already bored. “It seems the Republic is crumbling by itself.. or the foundations are splitting slowly atleast.”

    The man took out a vibroshiv and began twirling it in his fingers, staring at the recording device.

    “The end is near. How about we just speed it up and end it already? Surrender is possible for you. So many have died just by -trying- to stop us. Make the call.”
