Mabuhay! Kamusta na mga kababayan?
In case you missed it, the debates for this election cycle for our alliance URA will be concluding. You can check out my performance via Discord: https://discord.gg/BExPgPF
What's next? The elections itself, of course! URA residents and members are eligible, so please go out and vote for the alliance positions up for grabs. Just a reminder, I ran for Head of Public Affairs, and let me tell you that competition is quite stiff.
Election Days will be from July 25 to 31. Voting will be done via Google Forms, unless otherwise stated.

THE SUPER ELECTION SEASON
A guidebook to what happens, and what’s up for grabs during the super election season.
Hey there! If you’re reading this dispatch, chances are that you are interesting in the upcoming super election season, which is great!
First, we start off with an election timetable to keep dates and times in order. The Electoral Council has decided to use the standard following timetable:
You may realise that positions such as the Overseer of the Assembly, Head of WA Affairs or the Head of Elections are not on the timetable for January and July. This is because the Overseer of the Assembly is not a contested position, and thus their immediate position as Head of WA Affairs is not—instead, their term is renewed every four months by the President.
The Head of Elections also has their elections every April and October annually, which is not during the January and July super election season.
You will also realised that the Founder position is contested during the election as well. However, this does not mean that the Founder’s position is up for grabs. Rather, it is part of a biannual poll for people to vote if the Founder is deserving enough to keep their executive powers for another six months.
If you want to be a candidate on the ballot for the election, you need to start knowing what the respective heads do.
The President oversees the work in all the councils and checks in on the respective councils from time to time—to ensure that everything is alright and that there are no problems.
The Vice President assists the President in this work, and can take over the President’s job when the President may not be as active and may not be able to handle the bulk load of work for the time being.
The Head of Security directs the Security Council in ensuring that all member regions of the United Regions Alliance qualifies for membership. The Head of Security also directs their fellow enforcers in ensuring that there are no suspicious raiding activities in any member regions, and do well to comply with the Liberation Council in liberations.
The Head of Recruitment directs the Recruitment Council in going from region to region to attempt and entice regions into joining the United Regions Alliance.
The Head of Liberation directs the Liberation Council in patrols of member regions to keep track of vulnerable regions—such as those with an executive World Assembly Delegate—and assists in liberations.
The Head of Public Affairs directs the Public Affairs Council in arranging fun and casual activities for members of the United Regions Alliance, as well as attempt to spread the word about the alliance through other forms.
The Head of Roleplay directs the Roleplay Council in the maintenance of the alliance’s roleplay, such as keeping track of the census and production yields. Their word is final on many roleplay concepts, and they make sure it continues to go soundly.
Though not contested in January and July, I better explain the Head of Elections, who directs the electoral council in ensuring that elections are run smoothly, and so are their debates. The Head of Elections announces the victor of the election. Once again, do note that this position is only contested in April and October.
Maraming salamat sa inyong suporta!
Heyo friends of Philippines!
The Free Nations Region is hosting a debate session on Saturday, August 1st at 19:00 UTC, and we want YOU to come on over to our discord and participate in some lively discussion. But, first things first, we need to decide what we will be debating.
In this dispatch, I have outlined in detail eight questions. These questions are presented in four groups of two, each of which contains questions related to each other. In the following poll, you can decide which two questions we will be answering on Saturday:
I hope to see you there and I can't wait to see what topics the community decides upon!
Mabuhay! My warm congratulations goes to Lanaograd for winning the post of Head of Public Affairs at the URA. It was said to be a close vote until the last minute, but we made it. Here is to the continuous raising of the international profile of the Philippines.
Let us support the activities and programs our Regional Affairs Minister will spearhead at the alliance. Maraming salamat.
If you want to join this military organization aimed to protect the Philippines, first step is to join the World Assembly.
Philippines formed its first ever military organization, the Philippine Defense Force (PDF), as a pillar to uphold regional integrity and sovereignty.
This follows the concept of a force in being, initially proposed as 20% of total membership, has been forwarded by Ariusgrad for years as an effective deterrent for regional security and potential avenue of foreign assistance for regional allies. The requirement to participate as member of this force is quite simple - join the World Assembly.
As of May 8, 2020, the organizational structure of the defense force is created accordingly based on an established set of criteria, and is presented here as follows:
The Delegate (President) shall be designated as Commander-in-Chief of all forces, while the Security Officer (Defense Minister) as the Chief of Staff of the Philippine Defense Force.
Secular State of the Philippines
Communist Party of the Philippines
Republic of Bukidnon
The Luzvimindan Islands
All officers are ranked by order. Military rankings are subject to change via a process of promotion.
We salute all the defenders of the region. You are hereafter mobilized to duty.
Mabuhay ang mga magigiting na tagapagtanggol ng bayan! Para sa kaisahan, katatagan, at kaunlaran.
Para sa kaisahan, katatagan, at kaunlaran.
Thank you for the overwhelming vote of confidence, Delegate and President Ariusgrad, and my fellow members in the Philippines. Thank you also to our alliance members who saw my potential to lead this new office. You have empowered my resolve.
As the first official Head of Public Affairs of the URA, I pledge to make the next six months a fulfilling one for all the alliance members. Indeed, it was a close fight, but now we move forward into the future. The alliance communications arm is vast, composed of 33 regions with their own publications and connected with the global media outlet NationStates Today. I am committed to strengthen this and more. Soon, we may be looking at a regular publication for the Philippines as well.
But I hope I will be up to the task under the leadership of our founder Ellenburg, alliance president Suvmia, alliance vice president Honeydewistania, and my fellow members in the alliance cabinet. Please pray for me and my mandate to all of you.
Your RAM Lanao, now your HoPA Lanao, too. Mapiya, salamat!
