It is very likely that it does not need any further discussion and thus bumping it serves no purpose. If you feel it is necessary to make a new reply, you can still do so though.

((Private: Mars))

Your Majesty, if I may be so bold, I would contest that my appointments have been arbitrary or in any way, shape, or form injurious to the Royal Judiciary; I have, without fail, sought to appoint loyal and trustworthy men, men of high calibre and unquestionable loyalty to the Crown and to the Divinely appointed Sovereign. I will concede, of course, that many are members or associated with the Royalist League, but that is an incidental factor - it just so happens that the Royalist League holds to the divine right, the notions of blessed autocracy, and the moral absolutism of the Sovereign tantamount as well. Thus, I can find no true bias, save for a bias towards preserving the monarchical status quo and preserving a good and righteous order.


My successor to the Grace and Justice Secretariat, however, took an exceptionally partisan tone, favouring those of his party above absolute loyalty to the Crown; thus, I rejected them without pause, and instead supported those with the aforementioned traits of loyalty and monarchical virtue - these were opposed by Senor Fernandez, though he did, ostensibly attempt to present an olive branch, which I courteously and graciously accepted on the condition that monarchists be preferred. It was then that Fernandez, quixotically, reversed his position and began - again - a wholesale appointment of Yellows over trusted and honest monarchists, those who typify the values of this regional party over those that champion the values that have been state policy since the reign of Your Royal Grandfather.

I will, of course, accept Your final decisions, but I believe that the present portrait painted of me by Senor Fernandez is highly innaccurate.

-

The Marquis de Pontevedra, after hearing of increasing violence in the north, begins preparations to step in to ensure this does not escalate needlessly; he similarly commissions an investigation over the disappearance of U.H. Etxeberria. He requests from the War Secretariat that troops be made available in the off-chance that such forces are needed to effectively pacify the region.

The Portuguese crown is once more in-debt to Spain. If not for the timely intervention of the Spanish army, the throne my father fought to claim would no longer be in the hands of the true rulers of Portugal! We thank you for your service. Each officer and soldier shall receive a personal reward from the Portuguese government, and I grant the following honors:

King Felipe VI for ordering the intervention, the Duke of Victoria for leading the intervention, and for the Marquis of Pontevedra for being the strongest advocate for intervention, we hereby induct all three into the Order of the Immaculate Conception of Vila Viçosa.

-Miguel II, King of Portugal and the Algraves

His Majesty is most generous, and I am thankful for the honour presented upon my person. However, I am most thoroughly pleased by the swift and efficacious restoration of order across Portugal, and this restating of the close and amicable ties between the Iberian Nations. May peace once again reign over our lands, and may prosperity and stability be the watchwords of the coming years.

In keeping with the general of considering the ban upon the People's Party, the Interior Secretariat - with support from the First Secretariat - now recommends that all regions of Spain remove the offending party from the ballots whilst the present matter is deliberated; similarly, the Interior Secretary recommends that all funds directed by the state towards that party be frozen, that her accounts be checked for misdeed - indeed, the sordid relationship between that party and flagrant radicalism is well rumoured, and thus necessitates such action - that the presses associated with that party are shut down during the interim, and the leadership of the party detained and questioned for varying matters, related to extremism, defending the non-redundancy of the party, and other matters.

It is further recommended that, to facilitate the good conduct and swift resolution of the voting, and in keeping with the measures set up by the Interior Secretariat to ensure free and fair elections, that all regions accept oversight from the Interior Secretariat, and further reserve the responsibility of the Interior Secretariat - specifically the Electoral Committee - to oversee vote counting and other related matters. His Majesty's Government should, after all, retain the power to ensure that such elections are conducted in an honest manner and in accordance with the King's law, and further that the experience this office and the Interior Secretariat in general possesses - as well as its position as the preeminent body for home affairs - should thus retain this power for the benefit of the voting populace and His Majesty's Government.

~ Pontevedra

"This is an inappropriate demand from the First Minister. His Majesty's own law outlines this matter cleanly and clearly - that a new department will oversee elections throughout Spain, chaired by an individual who hold no other position. And, setting aside the implication that the First Minister does not value His Majesty's law and conscious mind, I must make clear that this is not a matter for the Interior Secretariat, although it is of great concern to both myself and my deputies that the First Minister has developed a strong penchant for overstepping the boundaries of his office.

"Certainly, there is a great irony that a man who long served in the facility of Justice has such a blatant disregard for the law, its implications, and the source from which it derives its authority. I can only hope that the other supporters of the Royalist cause have a greater ideological dignity than the First Minister has shown in his efforts to undermine the provisions which have been passed with the confidence of not just the Audience or State Council, but by the Spanish Crown itself."


Cesc Roma,
Deputy for Girona,
Industrial Secretary

The Interior Secretariat has, since the first elections were held, ensured the they were conducted in an efficacious and fair manner; it must further be stated that this Committee stands firmly in line with the section regarding "individual who hold no other position." Therefore, it would make entire sense that, at least for the duration of this election - whilst this new system is being implemented - that the present body that has conducted such a role should maintain it. Or should we, perhaps, brazenly step forward without clearly vetting a new body and permit disorder and poor conduct upon the electorate? Furthermore, I do not believe that there was any matter in the law that prevented those who served upon the Electoral Committee ably to serve on this new body - and, though I feel it is unnecessary - any such limitation could be taken as a limitation of the power of the King to appoint as necessary (indeed, the provision regarding "individual who hold no other position" could also be construed as such, which merely highlights the various problems of that law the need for its rectification).

In short, this seems to be pedantic whinging that would merely allow the elections to be held without a meaningful degree of oversight. I cannot, in any way, see how that is a positive for the Kingdom, nor can I conceive of my actions being some overstepping of my office's directives, or some grand violation.

Parties of the Election of 1890

Partido Popular de España
Interventionism - Protectionism - Moralism - Anti-Military - Limited Citizenship

Leader: Don Francisco Pater de Valle
Ideology: Christian Democracy

The Partido Popular de España is a centrist Christian Democratic party. Its ultimate goal is the establishment of a Spanish Christian community free from corrupt and nepotistic rulers, protected by democratic institutions and the Rule of Law and united under God and His Most Catholic Majesty. To achieve this, the People's Party shall seek to create an independent judiciary to uphold the laws of the Kingdom, to create a society in which all are judged equally before the Law. The People's Party will also seek to expand fair representation and enfranchisement, which has already been achieved in the People's Party-controlled regions of Valencia and Andalusia, to all of Spain. The People's Party will seek an end to the Occupation of Portugal, which is not a Spanish Struggle and does not service our national interests. Lastly, the People's Party shall seek to protect the Middle and Working classes from exploitation through the legalization of non-governmental trade unions, the establishment of a free press, independent from the office of censorship, and the end of gerrymandering by private interests. These Reforms are vital for a New Dawn for Spain, where democracy, peace and prosperity reign.

The Establishment of an Independent Judiciary
The People's Party will spearhead the creation of an independent Parliamentary Committee for Judicial Affairs, which shall oversee the appointments by the Secretary of Grace and Justice and veto them if the candidates are proven to be partisan, the committee will also investigate the actions by already appointed judges, whose non-partisanship is called into question due to indecent ties with extrajudicial organisations and people, and shall take the necessary steps to protect the Rule of Law and the independence of the judiciary.

The Enfranchisement of Communities
Currently, many regions still maintain the irrational disenfranchisement of thousands of honest, hard-working Spaniards, in favour of protecting private interest, private profit and private control. This broken system causes entire villages and communities of Spaniards to be disenfranchised, as in small farm villages, only the pater can vote for the entire community, and his vote is worth less than that of the plantation owners in the Spanish Overseas Colonies. This causes these villages to suffer under a system that does not care for them, while at the same time, their brothers in the ever expanding cities of Spain, the heartland of a new economy, are voiceless against the oppression by profit-seeking industrialists, as they cannot buy the land required to buy the right to vote. The People's Party does not believe a right to vote should be bought, it must be earned through hard-work, loyalty and contribution towards the community, and these traits are ingrained in the thousands of Spanish communities that form the strength of this Kingdom. The People's Party therefore proposes a Great Reform Act to expand the franchise to include these hard working, honest Spaniards.

The End of the Portuguese Occupation
The People's Party believes the Kingdom of Spain strays on the wrong side of history by supporting the oppressive and corrupt regime in Lisbon, to which the Portuguese people do not own their loyalty and which is must alike to the old French Regime in Spain. It is therefor that the People's Party proposes an immediate end to the persecutions and the military reprisals against innocent citizens in Portugal. The People's Party will encourage His Most Catholic Majesty's Government to serve as mediator in Portugal until a stable and democratic Kingdom of Portugal can be established, which enjoy the support of the Portuguese People. For if we do not end this struggle, we risk the lives of our brave soldiers, our fathers, brothers and sons, in a struggle that is not theirs for a cause that is not ours, and we risk to end decades of fruitful cooperation and mutual friendship between the Portuguese and Spanish Peoples and Kingdoms. Those are prices we are not willing to pay.

The Protection of the Weak and the Voiceless, Our Duty
The Works of Mercy, both spiritual and corporal, shall be the centerpiece of the People's Party in Government and in the Royal Audiencia. They form our guiding principles and must be ingrained in any Spanish Government. The People's Party shall introduce legislation in the Royal Audiencia to achieve the first four spiritual works of mercy - instructing the ignorant, counseling the doubtful, admonishing sinners, and comforting the afflicted - in the Catholic Schools and Hospitals across the Kingdom, who shall be dutifully supported in these momentous tasks by the People's Party. The People's Party shall also seek to support the Roman Catholic Church in its mission to achieve the Corporal Works of Mercy - to feed the hungry, to give drink to the thirsty, to clothe the naked, to harbor the harborless, to visit the sick, to ransom the captive, to bury the dead -, and it sees a pivotal role for the State in achieving them. It is therefor that the People's Party will seek to reform the State, from its current jingoistic and partisan form, to an institution which fulfills both its Christian, as described in the seven corporal Works of Merchy, and its historical, protecting the Spanish People and the King, tasks.

These are the duties and goals of the People's Party for the next Royal Assembly, and it is our earnest hope that the Spanish People support us both in this General Election and after that. For the People's Party makes no baseless promises. The future will not be easy. But this time peace, rather than war, must be won. The People's Party offers a New Dawn for Spain and a plan which will win Democracy, Peace and Prosperity for the People.


Partido Autonomista
Free Trade/State Capitalism/Pluralism/Full Citizenship/Anti-Military​

Leader: The Duke of Menorca
Ideology: Regionalism, Monarchism, Liberal Conservatism, Mutualism, Proto-Libertarianism

Formed out of the loose arrangements of the Movimiento Rojo, the Partido Autonomista was the culmination of Cesc Roma's gradual takeover of his uncle's political movement, which had moved the party away from the general apolitical positions of Eloi Roma, and towards the Proudhonian economics of the Duke of Menorca's mutualist explorations. As a result, when he made the decision to officially merge the most successful regional associations of Los Rojos, the Duke found himself overseeing the establishment of a political party which was a syncretic mixture of ideologies.

The most significant element of Las Autonomistas was that the new organization had a much more formal and rigid hierarchy and campaigning mechanism, although their pursuit of regionalism was not significantly dulled by this merger, and the Partido Autonomista continued to grant local chapters of the party a great deal of autonomy, particularly in regard to campaigning, which was still a decentralized process, although the new political infrastructure was intended to assist in achieving more widespread electoral successes.

Liga Realista
State Capitalism / Protectionism / Moralism / Jingoism / Limited Citizenship

Leader: The Marquis of Pontevedra
Ideology: Carlism, Royalism, Traditionalism, Archconservatism

La Liga Realista was largely devised by the Duque de la Victoria, the Marquis de Pontevedra, and several other nobles, though it sought to establish itself as a broad-tent organization of people. Its overarching goal is the support of traditionalist and conservative views and its leadership and members are dedicated to defending the spirit and essence of the Carlist Spain. It reaches out to all classes of society - priests, nobles, rural landowners and conservative peasants, as well as officials, officers and other representatives of the conservative middle class. It advocates cohesion between all social classes, firmly stand in defence of the moral values and religion, as well as loyalty to the Throne. The League believes in a strong army and advocates for its active development, proactive colonial policies, maintenance of the Spanish overseas empire.


Los Amarillos
Laissez Faire | Free Trade | Moralism | Pro-War | Residency

"Leader": Luys Blas Ximon Hortun y Llorente Etxeto
Ideology: Economic Liberalism, Social Conservatism, Royalism

Los Amarillos was a court faction set up by the Marquis de Riojo's grandfather, Dom Barros Etxeto. In the wake of the formation of national elections by the King, and the failure of the establishment of a suitable party, the Etxeto household (under the steady hand of the current Dom Etxeto) used it's influence to recreate the Yellows, which had been forgotten by the court and de facto defunct by 1864 and the passing of late Dom Barros Etxeto.

Although Dom Luys Etxeto has the powers of the Etxetos behind him, this is not expected to be a powerful counter to the likes of La Liga Realista.


El Movimiento Socialista
Free Trade - Planned Economy - Moralism - Pro Military - Full Citizenship

Leader: Salbatore Verdejo
Ideology: Moderate Socialism, Monarchism
The Movimiento Socialista, or the socialist movement, begun as a coalition of socialist groups across Spain's cities, and has come out in force for the 1879 elections. It is primarily focused in the middle class, with few nobles supporting its unorthodox platform. It has gotten a headquarters in Madrid, and with its Chairman, Salbatore Verdejo, it has begun to challenge the established parties, and will bring the idea of Marx and Engel to Spain, Under a more moderate and monarchist platform, of course.

The Socialist Movement is unlike any socialist party in the world, promoting a form of state socialism led by an enlightened monarchy supporting state regulation of the economy. It doesn't support an abrupt overthrow of the Social order, instead working within the bounds of a monarchy to further the interests of the worker.

Liga Realista

The Royalists have and will continue to promote a strong foreign policy, a stalwart defence of the monarchy, a robust and active hand in ensuring economic growth and stability, and shall maintain a commitment towards greater efficiency, administrative reform, and a strong series of protections awarded to all Spaniards by His Catholic Majesty and His Government. We shall, with continuing support from the Spanish public, work towards the expansion of the Royal Army and Navy, reform of the colonies, development and protection of domestic industry, and the maintenance of the present privileges enjoyed by the working classes and poor of the Kingdom.

~ Pontevedra

-

The Marquis continues his speaking tour, and quickly encourages other Royalists, traditionalists, and Pontevedran allies to do the same, whilst beginning a new media campaign; Royalist and state newspapers are continually touting the successes of the Royalist government, and decrying the radicalism of the opposition. The Marquis also continues efforts to ensure the Electoral Committee, in some way, shape, or form, dictates the vote counting policies throughout the Kingdom.

Party: Los Amarillos

Fernando Armando Hernando Rolando Fernández sought out all his industrialist friends to express his support for Los Amarillos and their policies of free trade and laissez-faire economics, a great boon for any decent profiteering capitalist. A few well placed loans or gifts to struggling businessmen earned further support. Fernando also started handing out bonuses to employees who showed an interest in Los Amarillos, although this could not be proven as more than a coincidence.

Imagine this being an impressive speech regaling people on the reasons to vote Los Amarillos. I can't be bothered to actually write the speech, but it was a speech made nonetheless.
