    Right so this to plan and discuss the elections going on in Sayf. There is no main thread, and most updates will come in my news thread. There's going to be a way where other countries can attempt to influence the election, either by attempting to rig or fund a certain party to help them win. Election influence form: https://goo.gl/forms/1Z4DgEKwD10oOKKa2 National Democratic Party - Social Democrat Republican Left of Sayf - neo-liberalism/centrism Conservative Action Party - liberal conservatism Islamic Brotherhood of Sayf - Traditional Islamic Law Sayfi Revolutionary Party - Marxism Libertarian Liberation Party - Anarcho-Capitalism Baath Party - Ba'athism

    SAYF NATIONAL NEWS: ELECTION SPECIAL Rashid: Hello viewers, I'm Rashid- Fatima: I'm Fatima- Fatima and Rashid: and this is SNN: Newshour! Rashid: Today we'll be discussing the upcoming presidential election. Fatima: Yes, it's been 5 years since the last elections in 2014, where our current president Ali Al-Karim was elected for his third term. Rashid: Yes, and unfortunately Ali Al-Karim will not be running again. Fatima: Such a shame, he's currently out longest running president at fifteen years, and such is not a surprise with a 75% approval rate. Rashid: Yes, he's always been a man of the people, but he's retiring after this term. I imagine it's quite exhausting running Sayf for fifteen years with little to no breaks. Fatima: Yes, of course. Let's move on, candidates have been on the campaign trail since last year and since Ali Al-Karim isn't running, they may actually have a chance since he was such a popular candidate, him retiring leaves a lot of voters looking for a replacement. Rashid: Speaking of which, here's the list of people who've announced their candidacy: Abdullah Al-Fiqri: Candidate from the National Democratic Party, he's a social democrat from southern Sayf. Tahira Muqasim: Controversial female candidate from the Ba'ath party, she's a Ba'ath socialist who wants to restore Sayf's former glory using socialism. Hajra Nasir: Another female candidate, she's from the Republic Left party, and is quickly rising in popularity, backing some of Al-Karim's policies as well as critiquing them. Abbad Al-Shakush: A former Sayfi military general, a critic of the leftist parties, and of course from the Conservative Action party. Akram Fadel: Working with the Islamic Brotherhood, wants to take Sayf back to it's Sa Haran roots. I expect a dive in the number of seats the party holds. Faizan Tariq: A communist of the Sayfi Revolutionary Party, wants to totally reform the country and make it into a full communist state. No candidate from the Libertarian Liberation party as of yet, but they usually announce later along the campaign trail. Fatima: Excellent, remember to vote on July 5th on election day! Rashid: I'm Rashid! Fatima: and I'm Fatima! Rashid and Fatima: and this is Newshour signing out!

    Title says it all. I've been considering the idea for quite a while now, but I've never gotten around to actually doing anything about it. What I imagine is a free-for-all thread where anyone can post short stories pertaining to crime, preferably organized crime. As there won't be any solid storyline, the main purpose of the thread is simply to serve as a depository for such stories. Those who do wish to come up with multiple posts in a storyline could simply add a list of post links at the bottom of each post, or to just create a new thread. Another alternative would be to create a thread about organized drug trafficking, which is particularly a more popular topic in crime fiction. This time, we could connect the storyline by showing interactions between different crime organizations, friendly or hostile. Of course, since we're involving organizations, we could veer off a bit from drugs every now and then, as these organizations do involve themselves in other types of crime as well. To start it all off, I'll be coming up with a post sometime, after we've solidified our plans. This is still a rather vague and undeveloped idea, so feedback is always great. Also – do say if you're interested to join. That would be awesome. Of course no RP thread is complete without an actual title. "In the Shadows" is already taken by @Rihan but it would make a great title if we choose the drug trafficking storyline. Proposals are always welcome, so fire away!

    This article was originally featured on Tuesday, February 19 Home | World | Salvia | Business | Politics | Opinion | Tech Saulius Speaks Out Against Communism, Other Liberal Ideas in Address As the clock struck 6:00 evening in Deopolis, millions of Salvians tuned in on their televisions and radios to the several channels and stations broadcasting the annual People’s Address, this year made by Archbishop Patrick Saulius. As Saulius exited from the main balcony overlooking Joseph’s Square he was greeted by a cheering crowd, and quickly began his address. And an address it was. Saulius wasted no time with formalities. He rapidly began to discuss pressing issues, influences, and problems he and many others deemed threats. He did this while also intertwining moments of pride for the nation- the economic boom, foreign relations with former rivals warming, and otherwise a generally great year for the people of Salvia. However, Saulius also kept coming back to a certain topic, that being the attempted modernization of the Church and liberal ideas, especially communism, becoming more of a threat. A surprise to many, Saulius directly denounced communist nations such as @Fulgistan and @North Dniester, stating, “These nations, their ideologies, are a scourge to Eurth and God’s people.” Saulius intentionally left out two members of the ICEB, @Ahrana and @Bulgenstaz. The former due to religious ties, and the latter- and more important one in the eyes of Saulius- in order to maintain good relations. Saulius has always been soft on Bulgenstaz, previously commenting on them before he was elected that they were “good reds.”
