Hmm, seems to have skipped a month, so here's 2 in a row.

XKI Update

Date: July, 2012
Population: 2112
Delegate Endorsements: 811
Forum: http://10000islands.proboards.com/index.cgi

Political Events

- It’s primary season again in the Islands. The primary races for the Senate Seats for Lyonesse East and Himes West are underway and the General Election for those seats will be held in July. There are a lot of very qualified candidates, so this promises to be a historic election with high turnout expected.
- Paffnia has announced that he will not be seeking re-election, so the Lyonesse East seat is going to be up for grabs this election. Paff has served two terms and has done a wonderful job overseeing the House system in the Islands. He was originally elected in the Fall of 2011 in one of the closest races in XKI history. Running against Malecia, that race also broke the record for voter turnout. Paff has exemplified the kind of service that XKI Senators provide. In addition to overseeing the House System, he was charged with writing the monthly Senate Report, and updating the XKI Calendar as well as picking the Rookie of the Quarter. Thanks to Paffnia for his service and good luck in all future endeavors!

With the above mentioned changes, the composition of the current Council of Nine is:

- Grub (Founder)
- Ananke II (Delegate)
- MinnaCaroline (Minister of Immigration)
- Markanite (Minister of Education)
- Cerberion (Minister of Labor)
- Paffnia (Senior Senator, Lyonesse East)
- Valoniah (Senator, New Republica South)
- Malecia (Senator, Blue Canaria North)
- Aersoldorf (Senator, Himes West)

Question:

When can XKI be expected to stop comitting a war crime and switch from Proboards.

Never I'd say. I'm not really a fan of Proboards myself, but all our history is on the forum, so I don't really see us changing.
