    The news about the shooting on Georg Bush has shocked the danish people. USA have been our ally in over 50 years, and our freindship has been a great one.
    This is just another example of how important the war against terror is. We must continue to make democracy in Iraq, and try to stop the corrupted terrorists.
    From your ally

    OOC: This is just me nitpicking, but Tony Blair said he would step down in September 2007. The story is in October 2007. So it really should be from Gordon Brown, not Tony Blair. :p

    We pray and hope that President Bush is still in good health and that the perpetrators of this hideous crime are caught and punished most severely.

    We also hope that if something has happened to him that Dick Chaney will honor our deal signed by President Bush.

    China would like to extend our best wishes to President George W. Bush and we hope that he was unharmed in the attack. THe PRC would like to reaffrim our friendship with the United States, and if the United States needs any help in bring to justice the people or group behind this plot the PRC is more then willing to help our friend the United States.

    India hopes that your President is well and that your country will remain a strong and stable nation as it has always. We hope, however, that this tragedy will not be used to bring more.

    OOC: Actually Sheep was going to try and have someone off GWB either way, so I figured I'd incorporate it into a story.

    Considering how easy it was for someone to try and off JFK, RFK, Ford, and Reagan (whether they succeeded or not) I do not think it would be difficult at all for someone to try had they a little bit of common sense.

    As for what I intend to do, and what happens to Bush, that's entirely my concern. The rest of you can just wait and find out. :p

    OOC: Bush's assassination attempt goes perfectly with the 20 year theory. Every single president elected in 1900, 1920, etc. from 1840 to the present, has either died in office, been assassinated, or had an attempt on their life.

    The Grand National Assembly elects Abdullatif Sener as the 11th president of Turkey. Although he is a parliamentarian from the governing Justice and Development Party, he gathered enough support from the opposing Republican People's Party and the election session had the minimum two-thirds attendance. He will assume his post on 17 May.

    Biography:
    Spoiler :
    Born in 1954 Yildizeli. Completed primary and secondary education in Sivas. GraduatedAnkara University Faculty of political sciences in 1977. Following various positions in the public sector as a functionary and auditor started academic studies in Bolu University faculty of economics and administrative sciences. Earned his PhD in finance and served as vice-Dean in the same faculty. Earned his associate professor title following a move to Hacettepe University, faculty of economics and administrative sciences. Became Sivas MP as a result ofthe elections in 1991. Served as the ministry of finance in the 54thcabinet between the years1996 and 1997. Has been Sivas Mp for the 19th, 20th, and the 21stparliamentary terms. Has abook and numerous articles and essays published under his name. Married, with 4 children.



    Controversies
    Spoiler :



    The first law Sener will review is the "change in election procedures". The widely detested election laws will be modified by this law by converting 100 of the 550 parliamentary seats into national type. These 100 seats will each be decided by 1% of popular vote. This will allow representation of many smaller parties that were not able to get into the parliament under the existing system of 10% limit. The remaining 450 seats will still be available only to parties with more than 10% popular vote.

    to USA

    The Grand National Assembly of Turkey condemnes the recent assassination attempt on the life of President George W. Bush, and sincerely wishes a quick recovery of his health. This unfortunate incident was yet another evidence that international cooperation against terrorism is a moral obligation for all countries of the world.


    to Iraq

    We have been watching the conflict in your country with concern, and hope it ends soon.

    We would like to bring to your government's attention that PKK, which is recognized as a terrorist organization by UN, EU and Interpol, is still not labeled as such by your govrnment. It is in the interest of our countries' neighborly relations that you take some necessary steps (such as recognizing PKK as terrorists) to prevent the northern part of your country from being a base of operations for regional terrorism that targets Turkey and Iran.

    Election Results from Turkey

    Justice and Development Party (religious, previous government): 17% - 112 seats (lost votes due to lacking a hardline stance about EU, about Cyprus and also due to the presidential election controversy)

    Republican People’s Party (liberal): 19% - 125 seats

    Nationalist Movement Party (nationalist): 18% - 118 seats (gained votes due to EU and Cyprus)

    Motherland Party (center right): 15% - 99 seats

    True Path Party (center right): 12% - 77 seats

    Democratic People’s Party (Kurdish): 7% - 7 seats

    Others (all kinds): 12% - 12 seats


    15 December 2007

    After much inter-party deliberations RPP, MP, and TPP reached an agreement on terms for a coalition government. The total number of seats they hold in the parliament is 301, which is 25 more than the 50.2% requirement. Deniz Baykal became the Prime Minister of the 55th government of Turkey.
