TELLAR PRIME — The five leading candidates in the 2392 Federation presidential race will take the stage at Gral University for the final debate of the election cycle.
BERENGARIA VII — The Berengaria VII Caucus began today in the capital city of Urraca, with all major (and even many minor) candidates in this year’s presidential race present.
PARIS, EARTH — It is hardly news that the exact contents of a President’s speech be unknown to the greater public or even some insiders reporters go to for sources and sound bites. What is unusual is that the President of the United Federation of Planets should make no mention of the contents of her largest speech of the year, and perhaps the last major one of her career and then fly off to a soon to be completed space station on the far side of Federation space.
PARIS, EARTH — It seems the superlative ‘Most Popular’ has been stripped from President Nanietta Bacco. In a detailed poll released this week, only 11% approved of her handling of the current Federation Transport Union crisis, with 55% disapproving and 33% undecided. While her overall poll numbers remain high, the polls on the individual issues and current crises are abysmal.
MATOK, ELLUSSIA — The Ahl, famous for not only their neutrality and terraforming prowess but also their steep decline as a galactic power after the rise of the Federation, have made a surprising announcement this morning as their empress declared that her people’s former neutrality was no more and that they would welcome an alliance with a foreign power.
PARIS, EARTH — With three candidates officially in the race and Federation President Nan Bacco herself still undeclared, the 2392 elections have come off to a false start with a lack of popular or notable candidates only a month before the deadline for declaring their intent to run.
CEIDH, VULCANIS — The historic Vulcan colony world of Vulcanis, long a depository and breeding ground for Vulcan dissident movements, now appears to have a clear “illogical” majority.
EARTH — Ambassador Lily Ventu formally announced her candidacy today for the Presidency of the United Federation of Planets, becoming the first official challenger to incumbent Nan Bacco.
