The Minister for State Security*  The Right Honourable Anna Lindström PC QD QA, has announced that the Grönsson led government is committed to upholding the anti fascist sections of the constitution and the Syndicalism, Protection of Socialism and Anti Fascism Act 2014.

The Zealandian Guardian had heard rumours of one of the Independent members of the Riksdag was planning on introducing a bill to repeal both the Syndicalism, Protection of Socialism and Anti Fascism Act 2014 and move an amendment to the constitution to remove the antifascist clauses.

Minister Lindström said with regards to the Zealandian Government policy on fascism and Nazism “We will stand by our legislation and continue to combat fascism and Nazism where we find it,  if we find it in Zealandia we will crush it under the peoples’ collective boot”, the Minister then spoke about her concerns about the rise of the far right in the wider micronational community “We are hoping that like the BUF the rise of the micronational far right turns out to be a flash in the pan, however it is very concerning and it is something that we [the Zealandian Government] feel not only impacts on state security but also on our foreign affairs”.

Lindström also hinted at a possible agreement to be signed on antifascism between the Zealandian Government and the two major political parties (Communist and Alternative!) saying “Its possible that something may gained from the talks that will be held in Canberra, between the Zealandian Government, Alternative! and the Communists”.

Lindström finally stated that she and the Zealandian Government where wholly committed to supporting the fight against fascism and nazism in all their forms

Formateur Appointed

Following today’s election Her Majesty Queen Astrid has appointed Their Excellent

Hugely popular and possibly the next PM?

Excellency The Right Honourable Lord Dylan Grönsson QA QD KWC KCZL KCRS KCOZ , the Duke Grönsson (IND), who is currently the Minister for Health and the Environment, Human Rights Commissioner and Marshal of the Realm as the Formateur of Government.

The position of Formateur is a relativity new concept in Zealandian politics and is borrowed from both Dutch and Belgian politics, the job of the Formateur is to form a group of people for whom the Queen can then appoint to the Privy Council and its cabinet subcommittee, essentially forming a government for Her Majesty.

The word itself is of French origin and means someone who shapes in that language, used in the Dutch and Zealandian sense it means someone who leads the formal talks to forming government.

Grönsson has already hit the ground in this task by opening talks with Alternative!

Lindström is in talks with Grönsson

(Alternative! Party of Labour and Independence) leader and current Minister for Foreign Affairs and Society, and Minister for State Security The Right Honourable Commissioner Anna Lindström QA QD EQD ZWD who is also member of the Zealandian Watch over possible inclusion of Alternative! in the Grönsson led administration.

Grönsson has been a runway political success since they began their political career in Zealandia earlier this year, having come from an activist background, they have provided something of a fresh breeze into the body politic of the Commonwealth.

Their rise has been rapid starting off as Human Rights Commissioner, followed by appointments as Minister for the Environment and Health and then appointment as the

very first Marshal of the Realm in Her Majesty’s court, their rise has been in a way mirrored by their partner General Ax Rödsson of Her Majesty’s Civil Guard, who successfully pulled off Operation Tyr earlier this year.

Grönsson’s victory also is a possible signifier that party politics is could be on the way out in the Commonwealth with his personal popularity way ahead with the Zealandian people than the popularity of either the Moderate Party or Alternative!.
