Return to Normalcy (cont.)
After two and a half months of heavy restrictions due to the RRS-CoV-20 pandemic, life in Minachia has mostly returned to normal. While mask usage remains commonplace and those who are at high risk of complications continue to stay at home, most professions have gone back to work and most restrictions have been lifted. Last week, the Emperor handed back authority to the Senate, which is now holding normal sessions again. International travel restrictions, of course, remain in place, but the process and rules for being granted permission to enter or leave the country have been significantly reduced. Furthermore, elections are set to take place as normal on July 15.
In other news, the Emperor, at the request of the Apostolic Pontifex, has offered special permission to the Vanyan royal family to visit Aurelia to celebrate the elevation of Augustine.
Pilgrimage Pending as Pandemic Winds Down
His Highness the Duke of Athos has praised the generosity and magnanimity of the Emperor following word that special permission had been granted for the princely family to make a pilgrimage to Aurelia in celebration of the elevation of the Apostolic Pontifex. As many as fifty thousand subjects of the Greater Vanya are expected to descend on Aurelia in the next month and hotels have been flooded with reservations. His Serenity the Xiaoxi Wang has announced through the Foreign Office of Eugrela that he will accompany his father as will his sister Her Highness the Countess of Lusarat.
Since all life is futility, then the decision to exist must be the most irrational of all.
"It is in the interests of the Essotori-Eugrela partnership, that we develop friendly ties with our neighbors and friends, as such, the King of Eugrela shall be guided and assisted by Colonel Harold Eskalder. He will convey the blessings of Essotori and assist the King in lighting the spark of peace. The Nozerod has been informed and wishes her representative in Minachia a fine reign."
Essotori has attempted to decrease tensions between Minachia, itself and Vanya over the issue of Eugrela with offering support to the new Pontifex. The Essotori representative, Harold Eskalder, is expected to give a speech in Minachia too, celebrating cultural ties between our nations, and stressing the value of peace.
The Minachian government has reiterated the offer given to Vanya, in that the invitation to visit Aurelia was extended only to the princely family as a personal favor from the Emperor; all commercial international flights from Vanya to Minachia remain grounded, and all border crossings entering Minachia remain closed, as per the pandemic travel restrictions that remain in place by both Senate resolution and Imperial declaration. The government extends its apologies to the Vanyan citizenry for the miscommunication, and it has asked hotel and travel companies to allow Vanyans to move their reservations forward to mid-August, as by then restrictions are expected to have been eased.
Furthermore, while the Emperor's invitation naturally extended to guests of the princely family - such as Colonel Eskalder - officials in Aurelia have stated that there are have been no arrangements for the Essotori representative, nor anyone else, to give speeches in Minachia, as the visit to the Holy See is simply a pilgrimage.
Expansion of the Hampshire Pact
The Hampshire Pact is a economic, cultural and military cooperation/defense pact that was signed between the nations of Treka, Entaria, Essotori and Chuukango (who left early this year). The Expansion of the pact was never a large issue until a need for close allies for Treka and it’s sphere as many others began shifting towards a more neutral stance became apparent. With this, the pact has added 4 new members. After talks with all of their leaders, the nations of Quangsuh, Sereine, Derptingtonn and Arells all agreed to join the pact. All 4 nations have added to the pacts overall power, quangsuh being currently a 2nd or 3rd world country (depending on who you ask), unlike the other 3, stands out. The nation has begun working with Treka economically and militarily recently and is expected to become a major Trekan ally as it develops itself more and more.

Potential Constitutional Reform!
Consul Joannes Norbanus today announced - ten days before national elections - that the Imperial Government has begun considering drafting major constitutional reforms for Caero-Minachia. He said, quote, "I believe it's time we faced the fact that our current apparatus of government, fundamentally, was not designed for our nation in her current form. It was formed in the 1960's for the then-new Republic of Minachia, a country which, although the inheritor of the system of the old Empire, was much smaller and decentralized than our new Empire. To that end, should I be reelected, I will form a committee of top governmental officials and constitutional experts in order to draft changes to our country's constitution. Should I be defeated in the coming days, I also strongly encourage my successor to do the same."
He went on to explain that among the changes thus discussed within the Imperial Council include the introductions of a lower house of legislature, restructuring of the Senate, restructuring of the judiciary, and changes to term lengths. All changes will need to be approved by the Senate and the Court of Censors, as well as by a national referendum. The Emperor has stated that he will support any changes approved by the people, as long as they "do not destroy our nation's storied institutions or prevent efficient governance."
It is unclear how such a sudden announcement will affect the results of the upcoming election, however most polls conducted in the hours following the announcement suggest general public support.
