VOTE SIGUINE FOR A BETTER TOMORROW
People of Haense, I’d first like to thank Aedan Capulei for his endorsement. Haense is a proud nation of Highlanders, one which has persisted through its harshest times. Only to come out stronger in the end. It is this fighting spirit that lives within all of us. One that I fear has been forgotten in recent years. I’ve seen division begin to grow within Haense itself, Houses fighting not with swords and men, but with words and intrigue. The growing disconnect between those who claim to rule for the people, and the people they rule has been made obvious. Now is the time to push for change and call for unity among the people.
With elections drawing near, I will outline my stance on issues and policies that I shall push through the Senate. I claim to be the voice of the people, and I do not speak honeyed words. I spoke to several leading members of the populists to plan and establish policies that shall benefit Haense if I am elected to office.
I. If elected to the Imperial Senate, I will strive to keep Haense as it is; a Highlander state that administers its own affairs, protected in the warm embrace of the Empire.
II. In order to protect Hansetic Sovereignty we must also strengthen our own military. We cannot rely Imperials to defend Haense, instead we should be promoting growth within our ranks. Something we haven’t seen since Lord Barclay was removed as Marshal.
I swear to resist any attempt to centralize into an Imperial army, sons of Haense
Promote growth, and ensure resources are given to the Brotherhood of Saint Karl
III. Restoration of Nobility within Haense. In recent years, many of the noble houses within Haense have gone overlooked. Those who have worked to earn their positions and help Haense are ignored. While those who simply have the friends are granted positions and lands denied to others.
Promote growth of Nobility within Haense.
Ensure those who have earned their titles through merit and hardwork are not overlooked.
Prevent corrupt and unfair advantages given to a select few who are favored simply because of their name or friends rather than merit.
THE CANAL DEBATE:
I. If elected to the Imperial Senate I shall finally end the bureaucratic gridlock blocking the completion of the canal. I will endorse a bill with a simple plan to fix the issue:
Have experts reevaluate the usefulness of the Canal and the possibility of our enemies using it against us.
Based on the conclusions, the Canal will either be finished or filled in with Imperial aid.
I. Under current Orenian law, guilty by association gets the same punishment as guilty. I would put forth a bill to reform this law.
Those who are associates of a crime can not be charged on the same level of those who committed the crime.
Prevent those with only minor offenses, from being punished by the full wait of the law.
II. Under current Orenian law, any crime committed within a vassal state can be claimed by Imperial courts. This is a violation of Haense’s sovereignty, which must be protected.
Any crime committed within a vassals borders will be dealt with by said vassals courts. Imperial Courts are denied the ability to make a ruling on the case.
Imperials can only claim cases that cross vassal borders, and involve two or more parties from different vassals..
