At present there is a democratic deficit in our Republic. The last elections for a Prime Minister was over 9 years ago and the process was a travesty of Democracy in which the outcome was predetermined and rigged in favor of Maleatu Shakor, who continues to lead an authoritarian regime at present and defacto “Prime Minister for life” of the Minmatar Republic.

At present there are currently no scheduled future elections to my knowledge, to which as a citizen of the Minmatar Republic, I find despicable, considering our established tradition of being freedom fighters and a people willing to stand up to tyranny and injustice.
I acknowledge the brave and courageous nature of our Prime Minister and his credential’s as a revolutionary and fighter, but does this really grant him a free pass to be the unquestioned dictator for life in the Minmatar Republic?
Some may argue that with the ongoing war against the Amarr Empire and their allies the Caldari State, that it somehow justifies Shakor’s authoritarianism; and that increasing security acts and measures that curtail the liberties and gain’s of the liberation are necessary for the sake of the ongoing war effort. To this I say rubbish!
It is time for a new democratic movement to foster some political pluralism and perhaps a much overdue election for a new Prime Minister of the Minmatar Republic. A genuinely free election with more than one candidate on offer.
