Successor states of the People’s Federation of Quebec

The Chair informed the Quorum that the President McGrath of Quebec had dissolved Quebec and replaced it with the Sauveuse Republic, and that it had transpired that this action had been unconstitutional under Quebecois law. The Chair stated that the Sauveuse Republic had not notified the GUM of this change. The Chair further stated that the former Prime Minister Lewis of Quebec, whom the President had fired, had formed an alternative Quebecois government, and that a dispute had arisen as to which was the legitimate government of the nation. The Chair further stated that President McGrath had eventually recognised Lewis’ government as the legitimate government of Sauveuse, but had also created a new breakaway state known as the Socialist State of Paloma. The Chair put it to the Quorum that it must resolve to recognise either Sauveuse or Paloma as the successor state to Quebec, or neither. The delegate for Ledilia pointed out that Mr. Montan of Ponderosa Hills was the new President of the Sauveuse Republic, which he considered nonsensical, and advocated for recognising neither state. The delegate for Misberia stated his belief that the organisation had no right to determine the legitimate successor state, and also advocated for recognising neither. The delegate for Hrafnarfjall concurred. The provisional delegate Cycoldia suggested that the Quorum should refrain from making a decision until the situation resolved itself. The provisional delegate for Aenopia also stated that the Quorum should recognise neither, as both successor states were both very young by GUM standards.

The Chair issued an executive proclamation recognising that the People’s Federation of Quebec had dissolved on 7 November 2019 and had therefore ceased to be a full member state of the Grand Unified Micronational. There were no objections.

The Quorum adjourned at 18:32 UTC.
