United Region Alliance wrote:The United Regions Alliance is holding their Super elections at the end of July. Candidate gathering is taking place for all positions till July 14th. All members of URA regions are eligible to vote and run for positions in the Alliance Cabinet. If interested in running or voting please join the URA server. The following positions are up for election in the Super Election.

President, Vice President, Head of Security, Head of Liberation, Head of Recruitment, Head of Public Affairs and Head of Inter-regional roleplay. A timeline of election month and position descriptions can be found here.


United Regions Alliance
THE SUPER ELECTION SEASON

A guidebook to what happens, and what’s up for grabs during the super election season.
TIMETABLE
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.

POSITIONS
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.

The real new poll! How do you feel about living in your NS country? Sorry. I accidentally restricted it residents initially. It's open now

idk if you guys did it like this but I used this NS to create a country I wish existed/I wish I lived in. So yeah 100% I'd want to move here haha

the one downside would be I accidentally clicked in favour of the Human Sacrifice policy a few weeks ago, and now 9.9% of my populace dies from it, but ya can't win them all right? What's a little bit of ritual sacrifice in favour of free universal healthcare and legalized marijuana?

XKI Summer Olympics

June saw the first-ever XKI Summer Olympics hosted by Cultural Officer HumanSanity and Cultural Office Assistant Grea Kriopia, which ran as a month-long event spree where 3 Olympic teams competed for points, trading cards, and bragging rights. Events featured spamming contests, an Issues writing contest, a short story contest, Card collection competition, Factbook writing contest, team debates, and more, each awarding a points reward to the winning team. The event had a staggering 96 participants in total and much friendly competition was had!

In the end, Team ALEN led by THX1138 took home the gold with a total of 525 points.

~ Some XKIers moseyed over to a Texas Saturday morning BBQ for a nice chat and friendly regional visit.
~ The Summer Olympics brought lots of additional spam to Taco Island, but the chaos only grew as a Linkcriminal manhunt was underway for Shy Guyia. Full support to Mayor Louisistan as he seeks justice!

XKI Game-Side

A regional poll in June by Jabberwocky asked Islanders what soda they thought was sodalicious.

This month’s RMB posts show what's really on Islander's minds during quarantine...

Self-confidence is key!
Suspect everyone...even the pigeons
Weird flex, but ok
Grandmas be like...
Cards go vroom
A nice reminder
Darn, copyright!
It's called fashion

Poet Laureate Competition

June brought around the XKI Poet Laureate Competition where the region's finest poet's faced off on the topic of 'anger', aiming for the best poem on the topic in any form or style. The winner of this competition was Liberdon and their poem, The Storm's Wrath, is featured below:

The Storm’s Wrath

The midnight sea lay still
Until a wind started to blow
And silence fell to a shrill
And once calm waves began to grow

Far above foaming dark
Rested thatched roofs and clay walls
Nestled in straw, a lark
All unaware as the wind calls

Higher! Higher! the waves howl
Leaping, lashing the salty rock
Suddenly the skies growl
Tick, tock, tick says the clock

Crash! A terrible sound
Waves strike and tear, unleashing wrath
Bash! Bang! Roar! the waves bound
Forgetting caution, the waves scathe

Wind grows weary and dies
Waves calm and recede to the sea
Morning dawns on clear skies
But on wreckage and debris

But do not despair, for
The storm has no more spite
Rejoice and leap and soar
And rebuild what was lost last night

For no storm can last long
And clear skies will always return
The trick is staying strong
Until the waves and wrath adjourn

Until next month, your XKI Update Staff is signing off - Grea Kriopia
Read dispatch

Oh well....
The legislators voted to trash the ABS-CBN franchise renewal appeal. So, what are your thoughts on this?
