Government formed as State Opening is planned

HAWK CITY – As Überstadt prepares for its first State Opening of Parliament to bring in the third term of the Kingdom’s legislature, the composition of the new government has been announced.

Prince Aaron, Renaissance Party leader and newest Prime Minister, had formed a coalition with the center-right Cat Party the day after the election. His recent disclosure of the composition of his cabinet hints at the sorts of policies that will be revealed at the State Opening scheduled for Friday.

The head of government and royal heir apparent has personally taken the newly-created position of Minister for Culture, and placed in charge of the new Ministry for the Environment Theron of Edmount, the prince’s predecessor and leader of the Contractors’ Democratic Party. King Adam, as is customary, remains responsible for the treasury.

Analysts say that the absence of Cat Party leaders in the cabinet reveals much about the lack of faith of the Renaissance Party in their coalition partners. The Cats, despite being the dominant party in terms of membership numbers, have a reputation for political apathy.

The creation of two ministries, which sophisticates the Kingdom’s government more than at any time under the monarchy, has been interpreted by political experts as indicating the primary facets of the Renaissance-led agenda. The Ministry for Culture, unprecedented by any historical governmental organ, was almost expected by analysts due to the Renaissance agenda of developing Überstadti culture. The Ministry for the Environment seems to indicate an environment-heavy platform.

Friday’s State Opening of Parliament, a ceremony of which was not held for the first two sessions of the legislature, is scheduled for 2:00 PM local time (2200 UTC). King Adam will give his first Speech from the Throne, written to reflect the Government’s agenda, after which the first several bills to be laid before the Third Parliament will be debated and voted upon.
