New CCCP-MTP government headed by former university chancellor
COARNIGG (Coare), 14/06/318 || After almost six month since the early elections took place in the Coare Republic, the parties CCCP (Coare's Civil Connection Party) and MTP (Movement for Trade and Prosperity) have found a way to form a coalition government without the need for new elections. The agreement was in fact already signed in April, but since part of it was that the government ministers would be fully acceptable for both parties, finding and screening the right persons took longer than expected. The government consists entirely of new members (although the minister of housing, Eddie Lyon (MTP), was a second minister in a former Bowdani government) and will focus on a more coherent tax and public insurance system, an item on which both parties had to bend a lot to find each other, and a modernisation of the countries' infrastructure and army.
As agreed between the two new ruling parties, both party leaders, Mr Drew Stone of the CCCP and Dame Mildred Kerr of the MTP will not take place in the new government, which means that the new prime minister is someone different entirely. After tough negotiations, the parties settled on former chancellor of the Medical and Pharmaceutical University of Sarimiow (LUKP) Osbert Hindhalleigh. Hindhalleigh (born in 259 in Kensobes (Hikirk)) is an eye surgeon by profession but taught at the MPU of Sarimiow from 304 to 312, after which he was elected chancellor of that university. After the dissolution of Bowdani two years ago he chose to have the Coare nationality, which meant however that he had to give up his post at the MPU and move to the Coare Republic. In the last two years he had a practice in Coarnigg whilst being politically active. Hindhalleigh is officially non-partizan, although he leans towards the ideology of the CCCP.
Ministers on other key positions will be Agatha Libby-Kiljoy (foreign affairs), Urpa Beoryc (defense), Gcosar Laag (domestic affairs), Jessica Yeovilland (finance), Grahame Bosuorthy (justice), and Tiberius Kensall-Twyne (budget and trade). The new cabinet was approved by the First Chamber of the House of Coare this morning and subsequentely sworn in by the president, Sir Julius Whittington. (OBAT NO'MEOG)
