THIS POST IS FROM AUGUST the 14th, 2011, FOLLOWING THE RE-FOUNDING OF THE GUM.
IT HAS BEEN REPUBLISHED FOLLOWING THE LAWFUL EXECUTION OF A MOTION OF THIS ORGANISATION.
Ave, Sandum Citizens.
This evening and, in fact, this whole day has been one of great work and business. In fact, it was some weeks ago that M. Tierney, a citizen from Egtavia, came to this government and asked us what this government thought of our oldest intermicronational organisation, the Grand Unified Micronational, returning. This government, of course — as a strong supporter of that organisation in recognition of what it has done for this state, accepted the thought and set to work with M. Tierney to re-found that organisation.
Indeed, this was aided by the recent arrival of the permanent advisor, M. Robert Lethler. Over the past few days, we have gathered former members of the GUM and created a working quorum. It was today, however, that the final wheels of motion began to gain their final momentum. Earlier this morning, a several delegates gathered to await a quorum. Today, at around 3:30 GMT-5, it was reached. The quorum immediately went to work.
Its first motion was to refound the GUM: the motion passed unilaterally.
The next motion was to elect an acting Chairman, M. Tierney was nominated: the motion passed and M. Tierney was elected.
The next motion was to elect an acting Vice-Chairman, the Sôgmô was nominated: the motion passed and the Sôgmô was elected.
The next motion was to elect an acting Supreme Judge, M. Austen was nominated: the motion passed and M. Austen was elected.
The next motion was to vote on the full-membership of the Kingdom of Wyvern: the motion passed, Wyvern has become a full-member of the GUM.
The next motion was to vote on the provisional membership of the Democratic People’s Republic of Tiana: the motion passed, Tiana has become a provisional member of the GUM.
This government shall act and cooperate in full-faith with this old organisation and work towards its prosperity.
Note: This article was drafted the same day of the original re-founding of the GUM. The GUM is in no-way linked to the 9/6 Dossier against M. Aldrich Lucas and, later, several members of TASPAC. This is to show that the GUM organisation stands firm for the integrity and prosperity, fostered in a united organisation, for all of its member-states. As several member-states’ delegates authored the Dossier, the Dossier was sent to them first. This government re-affirms its 8/14 unilateral Pledge, stating that it shall protect and defend the further advancement of GUM member-states.
