Logging in… Roden assumes office!

President Jacus Roden formally assumed office earlier today at his inauguration before the Gallente Senate. Shortly beforehand, incumbent President Souro Foiritan made a brief, formal statement to the Senate. Executive power rested briefly with the Senate before Chief Justice Broyal Alserette of the Federation Supreme Court swore in Jacus Roden as the new President of the Federation.

To a standing ovation, President Roden then took the rostrum and stood quietly for a moment before motioning for silence and giving a speech in which he reaffirmed his election pledges. President Roden stated that it was the policy of his government to “restore Federation control over the space and planets of the Luminaire system and to all Federation systems and worlds occupied by Caldari State naval and militia forces,” and noted that capsuleer forces of the Federal Defence Union had liberated several Gallente systems since the election. His wide-ranging speech took in aspects of policy such as corruption – another theme of Roden’s campaign – industrial policy, and the importance of the capsuleer class to the economy and security of the Federation. President Roden is himself a capsuleer.

President Roden finished his speech with a pledge “to return the Gallente Federation to the greatness that has been its undoubted destiny from the moment our peoples united to realize the historic project of universal freedom.” As he stepped back from the podium, the Senate once more erupted in a standing ovation, which the President acknowledged before leaving.”

About time! Hopefully something will actually get done now that Foiritan has officially gone away. I know it’s a bit strange, having never visited there, but I don’t think I could forgive the Caldari for what they did to the Intaki system. I doubt I’ll ever visit, but still… Not a big fan of the Caldari. My point being; I, like everyone one else in the ‘verse, blame Foiritan for the fact that the Caldari managed to hit us as hard as they did.

Anyway, enough flexing of my inadequate-political-knowledge muscles. It looks like I might be being called back to the Wormhole from my “base” in Sortet. Apparently some kind of hauling operation is going on, I don’t know, not really paying attention to the corp channel at the moment. I’m not really too enthusiastic about being called away from the Fed. Navy station here either, my agent has kept me occupied with various tasks that range from carrying stuff about in a shuttle to killing Serpentis fleets – I can’t help but feel a bit overqualified for this.

Makes me wonder, if it’s left to us privateers to try fight off Serpentis, Angel Cartel et al, and by the looks of recent events they’re not fighting the Caldari… What exactly does the Federation Navy do?
