MCARTHIA – The Mcarthian Parliament opened provisionally today, with five MPs taking seats until elections for Public Representatives are held later this coming week.
President Kit McCarthy, Horatio Eden (Representative of Bosconia, Foreign Secretary and Justice Secretary), James Frisch (Culture Secretary), Patrick Renwick (Relations Secretary) and Mike Lewis (Finance Minister) will be legislating provisionally on behalf of the Mcarthian people until elections are held soon.
Mr. Eden, Mr. Frisch and Patrick Hytholoday, who are also members of the same party in Beacon City, where Mr. Eden serves as Chief Minister and Mr. Frisch as Prince, are discussing forming their own Mcarthian political party, on a base of democratizing the Maelternt, which even President McCarthy publicly admitted “is in many respects undemocratic and potentially open for corruption”.
Dallin Langford, the Head of the Watchdog Service who is referred to as the unofficial opposition in the Mcarthian Parliament, was granted observer status in the new “fordenskaelinc” – Mcarthian for the public assembly in which the six now operate. He does not, however, have access to confidential information the parliamentarians may discuss.
It is as yet not clear how many candidates will run for seats when the Public Representatives are elected. Horatio Eden and Kit McCarthy will retain their seats as Representative of Bosconia and President respectively, though how many others who are currently sat in the chambers will return after the election is concluded is as yet unclear.
