Izt Ferdig'There is no question as to who won this election.'
A cold day was somehow filled with warmth this afternoon as the Greenlandic national election was officially decided in favor of soon to be President Wismark Schmitz. In a patriotic speech before the ruins of the former Republic Building, President-Elect Schmitz vowed to once again set down the path of restring Greenland to greatness, and promised that as long as he was the head of state Greenland would never again bend its knee to a foreign power.
By all indications, he'll have the political power to back it up. Because the percentages of votes in the presidential election are used to directly calculate the seats in the Senate, it would seem that 79% of President Schmitz' Senate will be able and ready to back him up, even when the people may not be.
All of the others candidates had already called to congratulate the future President before the election was officially over, as his victory was evident since he won his third province by 11 AM. He has not, however, even begun to silence the voices of those who oppose his party, and in all likelihood the five other parties will be banding together to try and even out the balance of power in the Senate. It won't matter.
"I think we've come face to face with a situation here where there is very clearly a winner and a loser, losers
in fact", said our resident political annalist Gustav Halbaan. "Even if the other parties were to suddenly form into one, they would still only have a 21% control of the Senate, not nearly enough to have any major influence anymore. Quite simply, they lost."
While there's no question that Greenland will be changing-rapidly-in the months to come, how it will change is still uncertain. Whatever may happen, former President Pro Tempore Helga Batstami is still optimistic.
"I know the inner strength and determination that my countrymen have. No matter how bad things may seem, I'm confident we have the strength to pull through."
We'll bring you news of the new President's cabinet choice tomorrow.
