Poll on Sudestian Independence

Auleus – Today the Aulean National has announced the results of a poll conducted on Sudestian independence within Sudestia. The results are as follows:

 

Leaving the Confederation: 60.2%

 

Remaining in the Confederation: 35.9%

 

Other: 3.9%

 

The victory in this poll has been a major boost for the leave camp; because of the poll the movement has received the backing of the Aulean National. Justine Jozefo said, “Today the people of Sudestia have shown the way they feel in the independence debate”. Yesterday Channel 4 broadcasted a programme about the Hillser period in Sudestia called ‘’Hillser’s Sudestia’’ this further flaming the support for independence. ‘’Hillser’s Sudestia’’ was a documentary about life in Sudestia during the Hillser regime, a large amount of the documentary was spent on the prosecution of separatists.

 

William von Fernly was elected leader of the Confederal Front the main organisation wanting Sudestia to remain. Despite this victory for the leave vote is still predicted.

Sudestian independence plebiscite to be held

AULEUS – Today a spokesperson for the Leader of the Confederation has announced that the Plebiscite (Sudestian Independence) Act 2018 has past. The spokesperson also stated that the plebiscite would take place in April. Current polls predict an overwhelming independence victory, with the states of Johnsburg-Wedfry, Fevevia and Aestra likely to join them.

As the Sudestian parliament lacks a meaningful opposition to independence, the remain campaign may lack unity. The leave campaign has significant leadership, with the Premier of Sudestia, Justine Jozefo being the likely candidate for leader.

When asked for comment on the situation the Aulean Chancellor Finley Muller, he said ‘The people of Sudestia will democratically choose whether they wish to remain a part of the confederation’. Muller has attempted to deny Margrave Poppo’s claims that the confederation is undemocratic, he also tried to distance himself from Thomas Hillser who persecuted Sudestian separatists, despite the fact one of founders of his own party was Hillser’s son.

The Leader of the Confederation Oscar II has so far remained silent on the matter, which has been used by the republicans to increase support for themselves.

The plebiscite is scheduled to be held in late April.
