Forza D'Assalto compromised in Uroboria
Strike Force has withdrawn from secret operations on war-torn island

An elite group of Forza D'Assalto troops, some of the best military officers in the country, were compromised in Uroboria yesterday following a surprise rebuke by both Hiigara and Shushtrepistaz which has made the front pages of many international newspapers today. It is the first time since the Forza was founded in 1942 that an ongoing missions has been compromised in international media, and questions are now being asked about why the Strike Force was in Uroboria.

The Ministry of Defence was on lockdown yesterday amid the rapidly developing situation, although we now understand that the Forza D'Assalto troops have been withdrawn from Uroboria and are now en route to the Pacific base of the Marino Salvatori, in Calaré for a debrief from senior colonels. Some parts of the Uroborian government have stated that they believe the Cattalian Special Forces were assisting the rebel fighters in the south east of the country, where fighting has intensified since Hiigaran troops arrived to put down the rebellion.

The Forza D'Assalto was initially formed in 1942 to counter the fascist occupation of Cattala, and has since become an elite unit that is shrouded in mystery. It's most infamous deployment was to Roumeli in 1949, in which up to 1000 rioters were shot dead by special forces. Demilitarisation campaigners have referred to it as "Cattala's answer to the Nazi Stormtroopers", as they were historically used as an anti-rebellion force in Cattala, but they haven't been deployed on Cattalian soil in over 18 years now.

The latest information on this developing story will be provided in our late edition tomorrow morning.

Forza D'Assalto was not in Hiigara
Government denies rumours of spying and secretive military murders in the Confederacy

The Ministry of Defence launched a damning rebuke against the rumours of espionage by Cattalian forces in Hiigara, as rumours of a Security Council showdown rapidly become true. "The Forza D'Assalto did not, and never has, been based in Hiigara. We have no interest in the Confederacy and what their government gets up to. Our current concern is with the treatment of civilians in Uroboria." said the Defence Minister Lord Horandi this evening.

Horandi also criticised foreign media for suggesting that the Forza D'Assalto was carrying out missions in the Hiigaran Confederacy, and refused to take questions from all overseas journalists during the press conference.
Suggestions that Cattala may face a hearing at the new Alliance Security Council were also waved off by the Defence Secretary as "speculation", but when questioned on what he would do if he was forced to go to a Security Council meeting in Hiigara, Horandi replied: "We would strongly resist any charges of espionage. The Forza D'Assalto has done nothing wrong and we will defend them if necessary."

In a further revelation, all Cattalian diplomats in the Hiigaran Confederacy will now have increased security, with the Blue Guards of the Realm guarding all Cattalian embassies and consulates in Hiigara for up to three months. A contingent of over 100 Guards is expected to fly to the Hiigaran capital tomorrow to be assigned to protect senior officials and civil service employees in Hiigara until more "diplomatic police" can be deployed to protect the officials.

The Democratic Party's fate is in your hands
If Greenwood loses, expect years of in-fighting within the country's dominant political power

20 years ago, journalists like myself had to scour every corner of Alder Hill just to find a single person that opposed the Democratic Party. Today, the scene is very different. Cattala's most successful political party in history is now struggling to remain a contender in this election, and their leader, Dominic Greenwood, is the least popular Opposition Leader since the rotating door of Conservative leaders during the 1970s. The party that has led 50% of all the governments since the war is now in the midst of a crisis not seen in Cattalian politics since the dark days of the Seventies. If Greenwood fails to secure at least second place, then you can expect his resignation within seconds, or a humiliating ousting within minutes. "He has failed to save this party - if he loses this election as badly as it appears he will, then we are all going to suffer" said one senior politician within the Democratic Party.

The downfall of 'Partito Democratico' has been a long and punishing one. Over the past two decades, the party has had seven leaders and the only one who managed to get 50% public support was Lord Williams, who led a frail government for six arduous years until a landslide victory by the man who looks set to crush Democratic dreams once more - Lord Secolo. His centre-right government has remained stable and affirmative in holding back any resurgence from the Democrats, and has only suffered from the rise of Il Popolo, who have benefited from left-wing voters changing support from Democratic to "The People's Party". If Greenwood has any chance of saving face, let alone his career, then he must regain the loyalty of life-long left-wingers, or risk seeing his party plunge further into the chaos similar to that which is now a distant memory to Cattolica Conservatori.

Il Popolo launches scathing anti-AIN posters
Party accuses Government of "dithering" over dealing with the militarisation of other states

Dr Rohan Viscoti, head of Il Popolo party, today launched a vast attack on the current Government, and even called into question Cattala's membership of the AIN. Viscoti told party faithful in Calora that the government has "failed in it's duty" to protect Cattala from "violent forces" from abroad. He unveiled a new poster showing images of Syldavian and Veratlantian helicopter gunships during training last month, and stated his belief that they are training to attack Cattala. "These helicopters are targeting Cattala. They are targeting innocent people like yourselves - just like Hiigaran war vessel did in West Jennai several months ago. These attacks won't stop, until we stand up to them and show that we won't be bullied." bellowed the 61-year-old. "These people aren't our friends. Unless we show them that we are strong - that we are united - then they will keep laughing at us and flying their war planes over our land and sending their ships to threaten us! Do you know who will show them that we are strong? Il Popolo will!" Thousands of supporters, many waving banners and cheering, applauded his speech and his presence was clearly felt. "There was no sign of age in that man. He's stronger than I've ever seen him." commented the Daily Telegraph's Hermione Western, who was attending the rally alongside much of the national media.

Support for Il Popolo continued to rise this week, with the latest polls suggesting it could now form a strong minority government if the election turned out as the polls suggested. A coalition with the Democrats would result in a majority government, according to the polling agency.

The controversial poster by Il Popolo


International allies condemn Il Popolo
Foreign Ministry has been "stunned" by global criticism of the left-wing nationalists

The Il Popolo rally yesterday has led to rebukes from both close partners and hostile nations after the party's leader criticised the Government's "failed" attempts to "stand up" to foreign forces. "We can confirm that numerous international partners have made clear statements about the speech made by Dr Rohan Viscoti yesterday." said the Foreign Minister in a press release. Amongst those who have lambasted the words of the Il Popolo leader were close allies of Cattala, including the Tirnreich, who issued stern advice for Il Popolo to "bite it's tongue or risk diplomatic ruin if they win the election" according to Foreign Ministry sources.

Alongside close friends who were angry at the comments were infamous foes Hiigara. They sent the strongest warning of all the nations, which led to the Foreign Ministry sending a statement to Il Popolo condemning the words of Dr Viscoti. "We feel that your party is risking the well being and safety of Cattalian citizens by making statements directly in opposition to successful partnerships and diplomacy with other nations. Your leader's speech today was highly provocative and provoking nations who we are not close friends with is not helpful in the slightest. Our partnerships with AIN allies has led to economic, political and military gains and can only continue to benefit the people of Cattala in years to come." said part of the leaked letter. Il Popolo has refused to publicly comment on the reaction to Viscoti's statement, and the Foreign Minister has also turned down interviews with the media.

7 days to go
Final countdown to the election of our next 4-year Government

The final campaign efforts have been ongoing all week, with Lord Secolo out campaigning across the countryside and Dominic Greenwood holding a series of rallies in Jennai, Celeste and Calora. Secolo, who has spent much of this campaign in the main cities, is spending the last weekend before polling day in Monte Calida, a province that is currently split between voting for Il Popolo and Cattolica Conservatori and will be crucial in deciding the outcome of this election. Meanwhile, the leader of the aforementioned left-wing party, Dr Rohan Viscoti, is also campaigning in rural communities in the north of Cattala - he is visiting Hellas province, which is a deeply Catholic region which consistently votes for Cattolica Conservatori. This time though, Viscoti is hoping that the fishing and farming communities in the islands will vote for the former field labourer turned medical soldier from the mainland.

Hung Parliament is "most likely" say analysts
Cattolica Conservatori and Il Popolo will fail to reach the 50 seats needed

With one day to go until polling day, the Democratic Party has regained ground from both Cattolica Conservatori and Il Popolo, meaning neither party is expected to reach the 50 seats needed to lead a majority government. Cattolica Conservatori has continued to be the most popular party in today's poll by Bernstein-Polls, opening their lead over Il Popolo to two points. However the analysts said that the rise in support for the Democratics has reduced the chances of a majority government being elected from "reasonable" to "unlikely". Voting begins tomorrow at 8am, and ends at 10pm and turnout is expected to be at 90%, the lowest turnout since voting was compulsory.

Atlantic Federation attacked by New Oren militants
Rebel Government invades kingdom in the north of Veratlantia

Rebel forces in the smallest Veratlantian nation of New Oren seized power yesterday and have begun shelling Northern Veratlantia and entered Atlantic Federation territorial waters illegally, according to local news reports. Fire crews have been battling blazes in Mirvan, reportedly started by rebel shelling from New Oren. International condemnation has been swift, with Hiigara and Corraile criticising the attacks. Corraile, a North Atlantic ally of the Atlantic Federation, is sending it's 7th Fleet to the region to assist the democratic Veratlantian nations.

Il Popolo are in talks with both major parties
Viscoti will need to make a difficult decision - which is his lesser enemy?

Last night's election result, a Cattolica Conservatori hung parliament, means that the leader of Il Popolo now holds the key to power - if he joins with Cattolica Conservatori, which some of the right-wing members of his party would like, then it could cause ripples of discontent within the left-wing ranks of Il Popolo - Viscoti himself is a socialist and wouldn't wish to join with conservatives. However the Democratic party has never had a friendly relationship with The People's Party - Dominic Greenwood once called Dr Viscoti a "communist dog" and has refused to stand alongside him at war memorials in the past.

So it's clear that "The Doc" has few friends in other parties - but factions of his party would be willing to work with either one of the main parties. He leads a divided party, with both right-wing and left-wing members who need to be decisively led in a difficult time like this. In recent years the nationalists have been suppressed by Viscoti, but given the opportunity would jump at the chance to really prove to their constituents that they aren't nasty socialists like Cattolica Conservatori rivals have tried to suggest in this election.

The final and most crucial question of this election is whether Viscoti will disregard his personal beliefs and put his party, and his country first. The answer though, will contain either a right answer, or a left answer.

Il Popolo's Rohan Viscoti at a meeting on Monday

Il Popolo "close to deal" with Democratic Party
Viscoti has visited Dominic Greenwood in person

Il Popolo is close to agreeing a deal with the Democratic Party, according to sources within both parties. Dr Rohan Viscoti has been in talks with the head of the centre-left party, and has met him "multiple times" over the course of the weekend. Viscoti, who is a socialist, would rather form a coalition with the Democratic Party and has publicly expressed his disapproval of Cattolica Conservatori's leadership and policies.

However discussions with the largest party in the Assembly are still ongoing, added sources within Il Popolo. However, with only the High Tory contingent of the People's Party supporting a coalition with the centre-rights, it appears any discussions with Cattolica Conservatori are unlikely to achieve anything meaningful.

Analysts have said that the chances of a Democrat-Popolo coalition are "considerably higher" than a successful coalition between Tories and Il Popolo.

[Note: Il Popolo contains High Tories (traditional conservatives). Cattolica Conservatori's members are often referred to as Tories in a British sense]

High Tory member Agatha Varmini leaving last night

High Tories walk out of Il Popolo meeting
10 senior MA's refuse to join coalition

In a major blow to Il Popolo's chances of forming a coalition, at least 10 of it's most senior politicians, including deputy leader Agatha Varmini, walked out of a late-night meeting to discuss working with the Democratic Party to form a majority government against Cattolica Conservatori. The High Tory contingent of Il Popolo left the meeting following "tense conversations" between the two sides of the party, who have become increasingly fractured since the election result. The Socialists, led by Dr Rohan Viscoti, are arguing for a coalition with the Democratic Party, but they need the 10 MA's from the High Tory side of the party to cooperate otherwise a majority would be impossible. The High Tories, led by the party's deputy leader Agatha Varmini, are refusing to agree to terms including a 15% increase in overseas spending and a 9% rise in healthcare spending.

"They're messing us around, and ruining our chances of a strong, socialist-led government." said one angry Il Popolo member after the meeting. Party leader Dr Viscoti has vowed to continue discussions with the Democratic Party, whilst the High Tories are still talking to Cattolica Conservatori. It's not known whether their party leader agreed to these split meetings. "It's risky," said one High Tory member of Il Popolo, "but regardless of our past disagreements with Cattolica Conservatori, we feel it's best to work with them and not Greenwood's socialist hippies."

Despite the highly public split between Cattolica Conservatori and the High Tories nearly 50 years ago, it seems that the current group of traditional conservatives are willing to sacrifice their allegiance to Il Popolo, whom they merged with in the Seventies, to ensure that they are returned to power in a right-wing majority government - not a left-wing one.

Lord Vermini, the father of Agatha Vermini, when he was Lord Celestine in 1974

Return of the Vermini
Agatha may not be a Democrat, but she sure has her father's fiery soul

20 years ago, Lord Cristian Vermini left power after nearly 2 decades at the forefront of Democratic Party politics. Now, his daughter Agatha is leading the family's charge back to the political forefront. Agatha, a staunch High Tory, was a rising star within Il Popolo until two days ago, when she and 9 other senior MA's walked out of a meeting to discuss a coalition with the Democratic Party. Since then, talks have all but frozen and the country remains in a state of limbo - with no government. "Vermini has a fighting spirit, just like her father. She may yet see a return for her family to the big league of politics, especially if she can force the hand of Il Popolo." said one political historian. "Her father suffered a coup in 1983, and had to leave power for 3 years. Maybe this is her version of that? The family fell off the political map, but now she is in the media's eye. Who knows what she will do next - she now holds the key to the next government, not Dr Viscoti."

Rohan Viscoti seen three nights ago after tense meetings with colleagues

Il Popolo "in turmoil"
Socialists and High Tories continue discussions - without their party leader

Il Popolo, Cattala's third party, has failed to agree a deal over the future of Cattala's government once again. The rebels in the party, led by High Tory Agatha Vermini, left meetings last night without an agreement as a startling revelation about the situation with the party leader has emerged. 10 days on since the election, the socialists within Il Popolo are still pushing for an agreement with the Democratic Party, whilst the High Tories are still discussing a deal with Cattolica Conservatori. "It's hell in there," said one Il Popolo member. "The High Tories are refusing to agree to a deal with the Democrats, the socialists won't even talk to Cattolica Conservatori. And now Viscoti has disappeared and didn't attend last nights meeting."

The news that Viscoti has not been attending party meetings, aimed at agreeing a deal with either one of the larger parties, means that the socialists have no senior voice at the meetings whilst the High Tories are united under the party's deputy leader Agatha Vermini. "Any talks with the Democratic Party must have finished if Viscoti has stopped attending meetings. It's clear that the party is massively divided and the only clear voice is coming from Vermini's High Tories." said one analyst. High Tory members still insist that discussions with both Cattolica Conservatori and other Il Popolo members are ongoing, and the Democratic Party has refused to comment on the situation.
