"This election is a very tight election. You and JB are at a 50/50 tie according to the survey. How will your campaign platform appeal to the voters?"
"You know, I define myself as candidate of change. The Democratic needs to experience new ideas, new thoughts as I aspire to ensure that nobody will be let down during my term. That is why The Democratic Republic needs more political maturity. Regarding the citizenship, I intend to submit an ambitious bill which will prevent spy activity. In fact I will create a title of resident which will last 2 weeks before the latter can submit a request of citizenship. I truly believe that the contribution of any individual of The Democratic Republic will lead to its success. My campaign is based on the progressivism as I truly believe that we need to change and be open to new ideas, such as giving opportunity to new people and give them the opportunity to evolve safely."
"What are your plans for the regional military? Should we be strictly a raider region or a little bit of both?"
"I intend to strenghten our military as I believe that a military is essential in order to protect our region. Regarding its mission, I rather say that our army must do both of the roles, raiding and defending."
"Do you feel we should have peace with TDC? If so how would you negotiate that?"
"I don't think it is necessary to exacerbate the current tensions in TDC in these times. I think The Democratic Republic must focus on its current relations with other friendly regions such as Aukumnia in order to avoid any pernicious action from TDC. We need a lasting peace with TDC but it is not acceptable to assist to such chilidsh behavior from their part. Despite the fact that I condemn their way of acting, we must not continue the war, at least not alone. I would be firm, I know that we must do a compromise that will satisfy everybody but I cannot accept ridiculous terms. If they continue this way, I will do the same. That is why we should have allies in our side and have better relations with every other regions ! By having good relationships and influence in World Assembly, TDC won’t hurt The Democratic Republic."
