It’s good to finally see some more progress made on this critical issue, but still the pace crawls frustratingly slowly.
The delays for a new security franchisee to be appointed for the Intaki system should serve as an absolute embarrassment to the Federation.
It is well understood by those familiar with Intaki politics that the topic of system security is a detailed and nuanced affair. But, what should be as crystal clear as the famed boulevard in Caille, is that under the Federation’s own franchise system, it is the Intaki Assembly who gets to award the security franchise in Intaki.
But not for the first time, the Federation has sought to overstep its bounds, and interfere in matters of internal Intaki policy. Interference which has done nothing but prevent the Assembly from carrying out their responsibilities, and has left the matter of security up in the air for months.
This is inexcusable.
The Assembly was able to confirm a number of franchise contracts months ago, but the Federation has sought to delay and frustrate the settlement of one of the most sensitive and critical contracts of all at every step of the process. In doing so they have created serious and unnecessary risks to the security of the people of Intaki.
Any moral high ground those within the Federation may have claimed in the past when discussing Intaki security has simply been swept away by this debacle, and we’ll take no criticism and disapproval from them in the future.
