NOLAND – The process of selecting delegates for the Nolandish delegation to the Grand Unified Micronational commenced today, with Lords Daniel Bandler and Walter Schutz taking an early lead with two votes a piece out of nine cast (so far, three people have turned out to make their opinion heard).
“If Noland joins the GUM, we’ll be alloted three delegates, one of which will be me,” Prince John V remarked in opening the vote. “However, the Congress will decide on the other two.”
Congressman and DJP President Horatio Eden was rendered incompatible with running for the delegation on account of his already representing the Federal Republic of Whestcorea at Quorum.
Eden was heard to remark that he supported Lord Bandler and Lord Colin Furch for the post of delegate, but evidently his position on the latter Congressman has changed, likely being convinced by the Prince’s assertion that “as Mr. Furch has shown a dissapointing lack of intrest [sic.] and high levels of inactivity I’ve voted for Mr. Schutz, as he has been much more helpful to the development of this nation.” Meanwhile, the official ratification of the Charter is currently proceeding through the Congress of Noland, with three votes in favour as of press time.
The nomination process continues.
