[Referendum] CH-BE Chocolate Unification Treaty

Day 1,896, 10:18 Published in Switzerland Switzerland by Archein von Drakenov

This article contains:
- an introduction to the Chocolate Unification Treaty;
- a message from the Government;
- a ballot for the Swiss people to vote.

Good morning/evening/night Swiss citizens,

You may have noticed that you still do not have the possibility to have a Congress this month (due to the everlasting PTO-threat from a certain country on our Congress, I guess you do not want to see another 400'000 CHF shipped off to that same country), the Government has decided to let you express yourselves through a more direct method, the referendum, or popular votation.

The Foreign Affairs teams of both Belgium

and Switzerland

arrived to an agreement with a new treaty between both countries:

It has been named the Chocolate Unification Treaty, or more formally Bilateral Treaty between the Swiss Confederation and the Kingdom of Belgium.

The text of the treaty is present here.

Here is the message from the Government concerning the Chocolate Unification Treaty:

The Government is favorable to the Chocolate Unification Treaty.
The CU Treaty has been elaborated to increase the partnership between our country and Belgium, to help each other in case of serious crisis in either political or military meaning.
Belgium has many common points with us, and it can only a good thing that we get even closer, helping its neighbor is always nice and appreciated.
If either of our countries will be attacked from the exterior or the interior, the other country will make decisions (send money, weapons and men and women; or team of counter-PTO) to help as much as possible the country in difficulty.
Let's make a clear example: Belgium gets attacked by one of its neighbors. The Defense Team of the Government will organize human and material warfare to help its ally, all this, inside CoT's environment.
Since we do not have Congress, we allow the Swiss people to express itself directly to this project.
We advise the Swiss people to vote YES to the votation.

Now that you have acknowledge of the CU Treaty and the message from the Government, you may now vote.

Only Swiss people above level 21 can vote to this referendum. Only the profiles' votes that will have been checked will be considered.

Your ballot is located

The votation will start when this article will be published, and will last until Sunday, 3rd of February 2013 at 12:00 EREP-time.

By Monday, 4th of February 2013, during that day, the results of the votation will be published.



Best regards,
Archein, Earl von Drakenov
Minister of Home Affairs

Yes Cronoss, I'm seating at my desk, waiting for your ballot. Prove yourself to be a good Swiss by voting.

Voted the article and in the votation. I'm glad we have such smart people running our government! I like it when eSwitzerland gets more friends. : )

voted article and treaty.

This is an important move for both eNations. We are both small and often looking over our shoulders to see what our big neighbours are up to. I have been a citizen of eBE, and attest to their sense of honour and duty [and very good natural-yeast beer].

I also think we should form a marzipan union that would include other threatened small nations, beginning with our eDanish comrades.

Greatmoff Day 1,896, 17:25

eDenmark doesn't exist. It opted to quit the game and merge with Germany.

It's kinda pointless as Belgium cannot send you any aid until you get a congress.

^ ok ^ . point being, if the big fish are always preying on the little fish, the best bet is for the small nations to band together. [and for the record, i'm glad you didn't tell me marzipan doesn't exist. that would be too harsh.]

anyway, we end up w/o a congress more than we do with... kinda reminds me of that old joke my old man used to tell about Eisenhower proving the US could manage w/p a prez.

I am very pleased to see that the government communication with citizens improved significantly.
Through the publications such as Rican's CP speech or initiatives like this one.
And it is very desirable to overcome the lack of interest
and political stagnation among the citizens.

I hope you two have the opportunity to a long and fruitful relationship. I've lived in both nations and have to say that this is an excellent idea and hope to see it become something more than this with more interesting prepositions in the future.

After reading the Treaty all I can think about is that I'm hungry

@Greatmoff: it's also to make our countries closer. Aid comes when really needed.
