Azraqi opposition demands Emperor takes reins after Cabaon crisis Jugol, PAHINA - Azraq's main opposition party has called on Emperor Tiirka Illah to dissolve parliament and rule absolutely following the ongoing turmoil in neighbouring Cabaon, a former Caledonian colony. The Party of Principles blamed the ruling coalition's lack of majority for the instability, suggesting a "strong government" would have prevented the unrest in Cabaon. Azraqi Prime Minister Hika Qiltu has been scrambling around for a new coalition partner after the Shamo People's Liberation Front pulled out in protest of what it saw as an aggressively interventionist foreign policy. Azraqi special forces are believed to be active in Logo, another ex-Caledonian colony, and the Azraqi air force has carried out air strikes targeting communist rebels in the country. Local press report Qiltu is currently negotiating with nationalists from Kollam, also known as the Azraqi Spice Islands, although members of his own Justice Party are pushing for a minority administration. The Principlists, who were in power before the current left-wing coalition swept to victory, argue the lack of stability has put Azraq in a weaker position geopolitically and want the Emperor to intervene directly. "His Imperial Majesty should take action before the Empire is in critical danger," a Principled spokesman said. The Imperial Household has yet to comment and few believe the Emperor will abolish democratic governance given the constitutional crisis it will cause. However the move will put yet more pressure on Qiltu and his allies the Movement for the Poor and Dispossessed to either forge a new coalition, go alone or call fresh elections.
