JNN Opinion
Nationalists, your sun will soon start setting
By Javier Espinosa

__________________________________________

If nothing else, Justosia has been known as a beacon of Nationalism, Monarchism, Capitalism, & relative social Conservatism. What do all four share? Rightism of course. Justosia's general, defining trait. For how much longer is the question.

Take the PM. Elected to his first term with 53.3% of the vote. His predecessor PM Blount received 59.4% his first cycle. An absolute landslide. 6+% difference. It didn't help that his opponent was a hard leftist. Is this Nationalist support & enthusiasm fading? Liberalism growing? Not quite. PM Blount didn't trek to the center often, but he was quite convincing when he did. He also has Tiburan Catholics in his immediate family. Tiburans always broke pretty hard for him. This is widely credited by Avalon politicos for that bounce & his breezy reelection, both times. If you're a rah rah Nationalist, you shouldn't get or stay complacent. Justosia may be the most resistant to the gradual liberalization that comes with subsequent generations, but not immune. Eventually an SDU lawmaker will become PM. For the first time since 1969. It may not be this generation, but probably the next. No one can defeat Father Time, but the NCRA is putting up one hell of a fight.

Suarez is more of a rightist than his predecessor ever was. His reelection bid should make for an interesting gambit.

° The Senate, via tiebreaker vote by the Emperatriz herself, has ascended the treaty between Justosia & Tarusa. The fledgling archipelago empire & the large, prominent union up north have agreed to mutual port of call, especially in emergency situations, for naval & civilian ships. Increased trading incentives via tax breaks for shipping conglomerates. Also a conventional non aggression pact. Deal was inked over loud & fierce opposition from all but one SDU Senator who ultimately relented. Sovereigns expected to sign their respective copies promptly.

° Convoy of SDU senators en route to Santificado Palace to demand audience with crown.

° SDU allied legal groups reportedly looking into all possible legal options.

° Crown Prince: All I wanna do is fly.

° Stocks in raw materials, metals, & seafood up over trading pact news.
