As you can probably tell by the title, I am putting myself forward to run for CP on the 5th May. The eUK is going through tumultuous times at the moment, facing an internal PTO danger and invasion by two foreign countries. I’m running for the Presidency because I think that the eUK desperately needs new ideas and impetus to counter these many threats, and I believe that I can deliver a Government that tackles all of the issues the eUK faces, with enthusiasm, activity and fresh ideas.
I am putting my candidacy to all parties at the same time, because while I'm a member of ESO I am ultimately running to represent the whole of the eUK, so I am approaching this election as an apolitical candidate
So, just who am I?
I figure that it’s probably a good idea to write a brief summary of who I am and what I’ve actually done to think myself qualified to lead the eUK. I got active in June last year, having come back to the game after I made an account about three years previously. Party-wise, II’ve been in ESO for a large proportion of my time, with an excursion to the BEP (now GBDP) last year, when we made a decent fist of trying to be a proper party.
I’ve been in Congress for three terms this year, and was Speaker once- during my time there I spent a great deal of time pushing for reform of congress to make it more effective, but ultimately to no avail.
I’ve gained some experience in Government over the past half year,occuyping every role in the MoHA at some point and being vCP in January. Whilst I know this is not a staggering amount of experience, I do think I understand how it works, and the roles and responsibilites of each government ministry.
I’ve condensed this into just three short paragraphs because I think that things I’ve done in the past are only secondary to running for CP; what really matters is the ideas I have, and my attributes as a player now.
Now, this is just my introductory article; I intend to spell out all of my policies in coming articles, but I want to give a brief overview of what I want to do if elected to the CP Chair:
- Firstly, the PTO threat is starting to get out of hand, with fresh PTOers being granted citizenship and taking root in our community. This is a massive threat to the eUK and it is high time that the government stepped up and started leading and co-ordinating the eUK’s attempts to protect itself. If elected I will establish a dedicated government Ministry of Internal Security, which will take an active role in organising ATO actions.
- In Foreign Affairs, we obviously need to kick the invading Taiwanese and French out of our lands, that goes without saying. On top of this; I would like to see much closer co-operation between the eUK and the other friendly nations that border the Asgard alliance (eNL, eGer, eLatvia, eLithuania, eEstonia) so we can work together to try defend ourselves and/or launch combined attacks on Asgard should the chance arise.
- In Domestic Affairs; I would like to totally re-organise the department, with the Minister of Education becoming the primary domestic minister, encompassing the traditional role of the MoEd as well as everything currently covered by the MoHA. In my opinion having two separate domestic ministers is unnecessary, considering the light workload each ministry has. I would like to expand the BBC News operation; and get the domestic ministries back to producing regular informative and educational content.
Okay, so hopefully that has given you a flavour of what will be contained in my coming manifestos, and ultimately what an Adastros CP term will bring.
I’m going to open up applications for my cabinet straightaway, please use this gdoc to apply for a position in my Cabinet: http://tinyurl.com/AdastrosCabinet
