The Grand Republic of Delvera was re-styled "the State of Delvera" this evening in a session of the Chamber of Deputies. With President Pemberton presiding, deputies from both provinces in attendance, and Consul Callahan urging to apply to Karnia-Ruthenia as a constituent state, citing constraints of energy from Delvera's leadership and the closeness with which K-R has worked with their counterparts.
"The matter I lay before you this evening is of great significance and much nuance," said Consul Dylan Callahan. "I have an act which will suspend the government of the Grand Republic. This I do not lightly, and I request no consideration of esteem or lack thereof for my person, only in the merits of the act. We see Delvera in a peculiar and, for our people, unusual situation.
Our most active and most dedicated citizens and leaders find themselves individually preoccupied beyond the ability to perform necessary governmental roles and responsibilities."
Deputy for Occidia, Joseph Marx, hesitated at the thought of dividing the provinces in the move, allowing Occidia to join K-R separately from the rest of Delvera. "Given the nature and scope of this decision, I believe that Occidians should make that call for themselves. However, I have given my concerns to this body for posterity and will not oppose the right for them to make that call for themselves," Marx said. He ultimately voted in favor of the proposal before the Chamber.
The motion to suspend the Constitution and apply to K-R passed unanimously.
