Minister for Environment starts operation of new wind energy park

Today Minister for Environment Dr. Maria Sollorz-Herbermann started the operation of the new wind energy park outside the coast near Bremen. During the speech preceding the ceremony, she indicated that investigations on renewable energy need to be stimulated and continued. "Eiffelland can fulfil its energy needs with its own oil and coal reserves for the most part, but those reserves are limited," she said. She also indicated that Eiffelland will continue stimulating investigations on wind energy, solar energy and biofuels. An additional solar energy park will be opened in Emsland soon, as said by the Minister.

The Government of Burgesia commends the Eiffelland commitment to renewable energy. In recent years, despite a still abundant coal supply, we have devoted considerable resources to developing solar technology, and if the Eiffelland Government is willing, would be happy to co-operate with you in the further research of sources of renewable energy.

Crown-Prince Albrecht becomes regent, effective immediately
King Heinrich IV announces his abdication

Today King Heinrich IV announced his abdication in a speech for the Eiffellandian television and radio senders. He indicated it as follows:
“Since my father died in 1966, I have been the King of Eiffelland. I have always done my tasks and obligations with much pleasure, and with the best intentions towards the country. However, now I feel that it is better to hand it over. My position in the Eiffellandian constitution is a very intensive and difficult task. A task asking very much energy. Unfortunately, I don’t have that energy any more. Therefore, I will abdicate in favour of my son, Crown-Prince Albrecht. He already took over my duties as regent. On the 31st January, he will be crowned as King Albrecht V of Eiffelland. With that, I will become the first King of Eiffelland to see his successor accede to the throne.”

The King will go into retreat in a monastery in the Papal States until the abdication ceremony will take place. Preparations for the ceremony have started in the Weissenfelser Stadtschloss. By tradition, the Eiffellandian Kings are crowned by the Archbishop of Weissenfels in the Weissenfelser Hofkirche. Furthermore, a renovation of Schloss Glienicke has started today. It is said that King Heinrich will move to that palace after his abdication.
After his abdication, King Heinrich will become Prince Heinrich again.


Talemantine Empire opens educational system to Eiffellandian students
Education treaty with Talemantine Empire

In a joint press conference, Chancellor Jörgens and Minister for Education and Science Prof. Dr. Rudersbach announced that they had signed a treaty with the Talemantine Empire opening each other’s educational systems to each other’s pupils.
Up to now, the Talemantine educational system has been extremely difficult to enter for foreigners. Access to higher education is only possible with a degree from a Talemantine secondary school, or after approval from a special commission supervised by the Consistory. Access to a Talemantine secondary school is only possible for foreign children after approval by the Minister for Education. Because of these restrictions, it is also quite difficult to Talemantine students to enter universities abroad.
The treaty signed by the governments of Eiffelland and the Talemantine Empire gives Eiffellandian pupils access to Talemantine schools, Eiffellandian students access to Talemantine universities, Talemantine pupils access to Eiffellandian schools and Talemantine students access to Eiffellandian universities.
Minister for Education and Science Prof. Dr. Rudersbach indicated that both the Talemantine and the Eiffellandian educational system prepare their students very well for their further career. He also said that he realised that opening the educational system for foreign students was an experiment to the Talemantine Empire, but that he has good faith that this experiment will succeed.


Prince Sebastiano de Vesci attends Königliches Gymnasium in Trier

One of the first Talemantines to study in Eiffelland is Prince Sebastiano de Vesci, one of the grandsons of Emperor Waylon. Today was his first day at the Königliches Gymnasium, which he attends together with the Crown-Prince’s youngest son, Prince Ludwig.
The Crown-Prince indicated that his family enjoyed the presence of Prince Sebastiano very much. “He is an intelligent boy, and discussing with him is very interesting,” the Crown-Prince said.

The Pope sends his congratulations to the Royal House and the people of Eiffeland. It is with regret he sees the King leave and with joy he sees the King-Regent take office.

The parishes in Eiffeland are granted and ordered to use the national coulors and all hounors needed on the day of the coronation. They must hold special services either on the 30th of the 31th or both. The Primate of Eiffeland will write a letter for this occasion, to be read in all churches.

The Papal States will send a delegation, attending ecclesiastical services on the 30th and the coronation on the 31th.

Finally, the Pope, primus inter pares of the Dominican Church and ruler of the Papal States, sends his personal blessing to the Royal House and renews the committement of Dominici to the long-lasting outstanding relationship between our nations.

We thank you for your kind words. The Dominican Church has always been and will always be an important factor in Eiffelland and in the Royal family. This factor is symbolised in the role Archbishop Strelecki will have in the coronation.
