Chancellor Declares Day of Remembrance
By Lira Deacon

Chancellor William Lancaster has declared today a Day of Remembrance. Today is the first anniversary of the Lights Festival Attack, a terrorist attack performed by The Autocratic League for Liberation, commonly known as TALFL, at the Ņuceda Festival of Lights. The Festival has been going on for centuries, usually attracting 25,000 people each day over the three-day festival. The Attack killed 288 civilians and 63 Members of the Guard of The Republic, including Major James Lancaster, the Chancellor's older brother. Major Lancaster and his regiment helped to evacuate the festival, drastically reducing civilian casualties, but he and some of his crew died in the process. Chancellor Lancaster gave a moving speech to start off the festival, as well as the reveal of a stunning mural in the town Square made by the Delacroix husband-wife duo. Our hearts go out to the families of the fallen.

Eiria Divided over Conference
By Jacqueline Alton

Eiria's recent decision to hold a trade conference was initially met with support from many, but not without protest. Many members of the Formido Party have expressed their dismay for the conference. The Party Leader, Senator Alexander Dukov, releases this statement this morning:
"This 'Conference' will do nothing but make Eiria an international babysitter with squabbling children. That is what the Lancaster's want, and that is something I cannot allow to happen". He then goes on about how "The Lancaster Administration has been systematically weakening Eiria. If I were Chancellor, I would never let that happen". Dukov has 3 failed chancellorial runs under his belt, he seems to be gunning for the Chancellor's seat for a fourth time in 2020. Will he make it, or will he be defeated yet again?

Emperor of Xiomera Dead
By Lira Deacon

We regret to inform you than Emperor Topilpopoca had died of his injuries sustained from an assassination attempt. All Xiomeran flags are being lowered to half staff for a period of mourning. The funeral will be held on October Twelfth, and Minister of Diplomacy Alice Lancaster will be attending on the behalf of Eiria. The Chancellor released this statement this morning:
"We are deeply saddened by the loss of Xiomera's Noble Emperor Topilpopoca, and we stand with Xiomera, and offer our assistance for anything they may need".

Support and Condolences for the Emperor's family and friends is pouring in from all over Eiria. Over 60 Senators have already sent condolences, from multiple political parties, and more are soon to follow. It seems that loss is one of the few things that can unite us. We send our condolences to Xiomera, and pray they can overcome this devastating development.

Eirian Factory To Be Built In Shen
By Caleb Frank
The Bureau of Trade and Foreign Economics has announced plans for building a major Tech factory in the Shen Empire. Many top officials have expressed hopes that this will lead to closer relations with the Empire, and that it would help improve the economy of both nations. The announcement comes a day after the Trade Bureau announced a trade deal with Kerlile and trade discussions with Sunemia. It seems that Eiria is becoming an up-and-coming international trade partner.

But these deals aren't without controversy, coming from both sides of the aisle. Senator Alison Legrand, an Eclipse member on the Foreign Relations Committee, made this statement this morning: "While I wholeheartedly support foreign trade, it is also our duty to guarantee the resources we Import come from humane sources". Minority Leader Alexander Dukov said this when we reached out to him for comment: "Economic Growth is a good thing, but we shouldn't have to be dependent on a nation like Kerlile to keep our economy running. Their vile policies of Matriarchal supremacy is a stain on our world". Dukov has expressed anti-Kerlian sentiments before, and he even started the "#BoycottKerlile" Movement last year. More developments are sure to come in, and we'll be reporting on them when they happen.

Yahumi Elected Empress of Xiomera
By Jacqueline Alton

Xiomera now has a new ruler, Empress Yahumi. She was chosen by the delegates of the Great Selection earlier this evening in the famed Huēyi Teōcalli, the beautiful temple dedicated to the Xiomeran Pantheon, and the most holy place within the Xiomeran Empire. Her coronation is set for tomorrow.

In related news, we are informed of the death of Tepilcayotl, Yahumi's main rival, by ritual suicide. This is sadly normal for Xiomeran Politics, and though it may seem Barbaric to the standard Eirian viewer, this practice has survived for centuries, and actually used to be quite worse.

We also have heard a rumor that the attempt on Yahumi's life recently was orchestrated by Tepilcayotl himself, but we don't know the legitimacy of these rumors, or if they come from a credible source. All we know is that he is dead, and Yahumi holds the Obsidian Throne.

Bishop Denounced by Zamastanian Congress.
By Caleb Frank

President Anya Bishop of Zamastan was denounced by her own Congress earlier today for her ordering of military troops to a PoverTea protest, which resulted in the death of 4 protesters. The vote was passed 469-30, with Speaker Foley Sakzi Abstaining. This appears to be the most recent of Bishops transgressions, with her and the Legislature facing several other disagreements earlier this year.

Minister of Diplomacy Alice Lancaster spoke on this subject earlier today from Xiomera. "President Bishop is walking a thin line between support and being deposed. Her order to use the military on protesters clearly states her inability to rule a democracy like Zamastan effectively. In Eiria, she would already be out the door. Her incompetence cost 4 protesters their lives today. I hope the Zamastanian Congress does the right thing and starts the electoral process". The Chancellor also spoke on this, but slightly less aggressively than his twin sister. "I am deeply saddened by the use of the military on protesters by President Anya Bishop. It is a flagrant abuse of power. My heart and prayers go out to the families of the four killed in the clash".

It seems that a big majority of Eiria agrees with the Lancasters' statements. Central Party Leader Justin Olmansēn made this statement when we reached out to him for an interview: "It is ridiculous to use the military on a group of protesters. Such actions are fit for Authoritarian Dictatorships, not republics like Zamastan". Will the Zamastanian Congress launch a vote of no Confidence in Bishop? More developments sure to come.

Provīri Recovering
By Lira Deacon

We received word that the Provīri is recovering nicely after surgery on his shoulder. He was shot yesterday in Liberty Square while speaking about the new drug bill waiting on the Senate floor. The gunman, according to Geminus Chief of Police Joshua Croix, has links to the terrorist group TALFL, A Fascist organization attempt to revert the nation back to what it was before the civil war, but after the coup.

Doctor Jessica Emmett, Chief Surgeon of Compassion Hospital, said this when asked about the Provīri's condition: "He is recovering nicely. The bullet didn't hit anything important, except for scratching the Subclavian Artery, and went in pretty cleanly. The Provīri is very, very Lucky". Everyone here at ENN wishes the Provīri a Calm and quick recovery.

Bishop ousted from Zamastanian Presidency
By Caleb Frank

President Anya Bishop of Zamastan is officially out! On Saturday, Bishop was ousted by the Zamastanian Senate 68-30-2. According to Zamastanian law, once a sitting president is ousted, they may not run for public office for six years. Interestingly, the people who voted for her removal were almost equally split between the major political parties.

Alice Lancaster made a statement about Bishop's removal on Sunday. "I thank the Zamastanian Senate for putting aside party lines and ending Bishop's reign early. I hope Zamastan can recover with a new President to undo the damage of the Bishop Administration".

Across Zamastan, protests have begun to try and get Bishop legally prosecuted. Traffic has grinded to a stop at different places all around Torfino, and several Subway stations are experiencing delays. We also received news that a protester was shot. We don't know about their condition yet, well report once we receive more information.

Senate Denounces Zamastan
By Lira Deacon

Late Yesterday Evening, the Senate Voted to Denounce Zamastan 74-13-3. This comes after major Zamastanian incursions into both Xiomeran and Legionarian Waters. The incident started earlier this week, with Zamastanian ships entering unannounced into Xiomeran waters. The Xiomerans sent some ships to intercept, and they were locked in a standoff.

Xiomera, Rhand, Lauchenoira, Shen, Kerlile, and Now Eiria, have condemned Zamastan's Actions. Zamastanian officials claimed the Xiomerans overreacted and that the condemnations were the international community "Pushing them Around".

Chancellor William Lancaster made gave a speech this morning about this Subject. "I ask Zamastan, President Sazki in Particular, to think about what he is doing. He is gaining a reputation that rivals his Predecessor, and his refusal to do something as simple as apologize has caused all of this. Is this really what is best for Zamastan? If Zamastan de-escalates and apologizes sincerely, we will happily withdraw our Condemnation. Until then, Enjoy the storm, President Sazki, for it is one of your making".

He went on to announce Eiria's attendance of the Catican Conference, hosted by the new Empress, Wu Zhao. Both Lancaster Siblings, Vice Chancellor Leah Stendē, And all four major party leaders have shown disgust at the murders of the rest of the Wu siblings in the succession, but that is a problem for another time.

Levant, Anarchist Haven, Gains Community Status
By Jacqueline Alton

The Montterre Provincial Government announced today that Levant, an Anarchist Village in the Southern Hills of Montterre, has gained sufficient population and income to be classified as a community. Governor James Tesečs made this statement when interviewed:
"We are pleased to welcome Levant into the rank of Community within Montterre. I'm not sure how government with a new Anarchist society is going to go, But you have my word I will try to make it as smooth as possible by cooperating as much as I can with the People of Levant".

Levant, founded in 2018, has grown rapidly up to a stable Population of around 3,000. Many political and infrastructure experts alike were stunned at the rapid growth Levant has made into the prosperous community it is today. Rumors have stated the rapid growth was due to support from the nation of Kvask, but these rumors are unverified.

Since Levant only has 3,000 people, their representation could go one of two ways. The first way, is that they are grouped together with other communities to form the population needed to elect a representative. The Second way, is that they are still grouped together with other Communities, but each community elects a representative on it's own, and the representatives form a council. They vote on a bill when one comes up, and their collective decision counts as one vote.

Recently, Levant has been receiving an influx of new citizens, mainly Eirians who are tired of bureaucracy and politics, and we predict that influx is only going to increase. We believe Levant will grow exponentially in these next few years, however, only time will tell for sure.

Troops Arrive in Vulkaria
By Lira Deacon

This evening, The Eirian Army Command announced that the troops heading on the 'Vulkaria Expedition' have arrived at their base camp successfully without any trouble. Chief General Māris Jansons stated that "Around Eighteen Thousand Eirian Troops, assigned to the new 'Vulkaria Expedition', have arrived in a redacted location in Vulkaria. We wish the honorable and brave troops luck, and we will be helping any way we can to get them back home safe and sound".

The 'Vulkaria Expedition' was announced after the Malvarian Liberation Front, A Vulkarian-based Terror Group, attacked the Central Merēta Convention Center, killing 56 and injuring 213. The Senate voted on the deployment of troops on the third, passing 283-152-15. Lieutenant General Natalie Letālia was selected to lead the expedition. She lead a major part of the Battle of New Riga in the Civil War as a Colonel, Earning the name "Colonel Lethal".

A surprising part about the Senate vote was that the Majority And Opposition Leaders, Alison Legrand and Alexander Dukov, agreed on the vote! It is sad that 56 lives lost is what it takes us to unite, but it is still progress. We wish those fighting in Vulkaria luck and our support.

Election Results Announced
By Jacqueline Alton

Breaking News! The National Elections ended this morning, and the results were just announced. Here are the Results:

Chancellor: William Lancaster, To the surprise of none, won 64% of the vote by the second round, and Shall remain in office.

Senate Seats: The Eclipse Liberal Party won 269 Seats, A loss of two from 2018. The Formido Conservative Party Earned 135, a loss of three. Socialists for Eiria gained two seats for a total of 24, and The Eirian Centrist Party gained Two, for a total of 19. Three Independents were also elected, an increase of one.

Governor Seats: Each party remained with the same number of Governor Seats as in 2018, with Eclipse at 4, Formido at Three, Centrist Party at one, and An independent Governor.

It seems a small shift has started from the big-tent parties to the Socialists for Eiria(SFE) and Eirian Centrist Party (ECP). Is this a sign for things to come, or just a temporary shift? We'll be watching closely at the political stage these next couple years to figure out the answer to that question.

In related news, Formido Party Leader Alexander Dukov has apologized for his frequent arguments with Eclipse Party Leader Alison Legrand, and a few of his comments in said arguments. "I have made many mistakes in my career, and my arguments with Legrand, which would blow up over the simplest things, is one of my main regrets. I also apologise to the Chancellor, for I have not been fair to him, his sister, or his husband. I will do my best to work across the aisle and cooperate with Legrand and the Lancasters from here on out".

Dukov has seemed to mellow over the past few months, bit only time will tell if his promises are genuine.

Artists Hold Auction to Raise Money For Terror Attack Victims
By Caleb Frank

A couple of artists in Merēta are holding an auction this evening to raise money for the families of the victims of the January First Terror attacks all around the world. The couple, Avery and Nathan Resà, are local artists with their own gallery in downtown Merēta, Galerièja Resà, and are well known in the artistic community for their charity work and political art.

The 9 pieces of artwork for sale in the auction this evening are themed as tributes to those who were lost. For example, one depicts the shattered facade of Central Merēta Convention Center adorned with 56 blue roses, one for each person killed in the attack. Proceeds from the auction will be put in a fund for the surviving victims and the families of those lost.

This is not the first time the Resàs have honored the victim of a tragic attack. Last year, they were one of the groups of Artists recruited to paint the inner mural walls of the Ņuceda Attack Memorial. They are part of a new artistic movement in Eiria, which focuses on capturing the emotion of daily politics. We wish the Resàs well on their endeavors.

First Adenovirus Case In Serenity City
By Lira Deacon

Serenity City Health Officials announced this morning that the first Eirian case of Adenovirus has appeared outside Serenity City. The patient is said to have been in Milintica vacationing, and came back home last night. Six people who came in direct contact with this individual are now being quarantined, and the Serenity City Airport First Terminal is currently undergoing decontamination.

Minister of Medicine Doctor James Darana gave a speech in front of a group of assembled press members this morning. "If you are experiencing symptoms, especially if you are near or have been near Serenity City, please visit a doctor immediately. Every moment wasted could result in another person getting infected, and your chances of surviving drastically falling".

Travel was already restricted to Zamastan and other affected nations, and all but forbidden to Shuell, but Milintica, being only recently infected, had not been affected by the regulations. The Health ministry has placed Sheull under Rose Watch, meaning anything or anyone coming from Shuell must be tested thoroughly. We'll see if the infection spreads, or is contained fast enough.

New Political Movement on the Rise
By Jacqueline Alton

A new Political Movement has been on the rise in Eiria, especially among University Students. Called "Center-Moderate Reformism", they believe that moderate beliefs should be reformed, and their main focus is making sure that the systems already in place within Eirian Politics can't be exploited, instead of focusing on further change and reform.

The CMR Movement was started by an anonymous social media activist under the Pseudonym "Delia Crobas". The bio of her account admits three things: That Delia Crobas is a Pseudonym, that she is female, and she makes her career in politics. Judging by the caliber of her debates and arguments, it looks like she is telling the truth. Many theories have emerged that she is any of a wide spectrum of well-known politicians, but only time will tell.

Restricted S-8 Documents leaked, Secret Project Revealed
By Lira Deacon

Two Days ago, an anonymous source sent copies of a Restricted S-8 clearance file to three small Geminus Newspapers. The file describes the creation of a secret group of peacekeepers who would protect Eirian society and steer public opinion of the government in a positive way.

This has many political experts concerned, because if one of the "Einherji" Agents was stationed in high political office, it would give the government power to manipulate the public. The files released were from 1985, so it's possible the current administration either didn't know about these files, or didn't participate in the project. Either way, quite disturbing.

One of the newspapers, the Borean Tribune, claims that the source of these documents was the anonymous political activist with the Pseudonym "Delia Crobas". We do not know if these claims are true, but we have no idea how "Delia Crobas" would get ahold of these documents. We will wait and observe the government's response to this crisis.
