REPOSTING OUR STATEMENT HERE FOR EASE OF ACCESS BY THE GENERAL CITIZENRY
The government of the Republic of The League of Conservative Nations was recently informed that our application to the Partnership for Sovereignty agreement was rejected by a margin of 1-2, with 3 abstentions. We have asked to be informed of the voting decisions of each region, but have not yet been updated on that request.
We would like to thank the organization for considering us, however, now that the issue is finally formally resolved, we have a few other comments we would like to make. Continuing, we fully recognize the right of the partnership to make this decision, but feel it was handled extremely poorly.
We are immensely disappointed with how our application was managed. The Office of the Consulate fully understands that exist concerns about previous out-of-character practices, that much is obvious. We do not feel, however, that it warranted the treatment our application received. We applied to the Partnership for Sovereignty on the 27th of January, the same day as The Union of Democratic States. They were accepted on the 3rd of February, and we were not even officially told that our application was finally being voted on until the 1st of March.
What was originally a foreign policy no-brainer for the LCN Council of the Republic to agree upon slowly became a point of skepticism and annoyance, to no fault of our own. The LCN feels it was treated both unfairly and unreasonably from the submission of its application until the beginning of the voting process (as in, the management of our application was unreasonable treatment, not the result of the vote). There was not a justified excuse for us to have been continually postponed for a month with no definitive information on our status. We understand that several member regions were busy and had other affairs occurring in this timeframe, but it would be dishonest if we said we felt this excused the extreme and repeated delays our application was subject to with little to no information passed on to us regarding that.
We wish the Partnership for Sovereignty the best, but we seriously hope their ability to review, schedule, and manage the entry process is corrected and made uniform for all applicants. Our region and its officials became more and more discouraged as the process went on, and it is both unfair to the regions applying and hypothetically detrimental to the organization to be so ambiguous and unclear to those who might seek membership in the future and subject to similar controversy in the review.
We are disappointed both with the rejection but primarily with the amount of time it took for the rejection to come to fruition, and we hope to move forward quickly in foreign affairs after having spent a month waiting for the result of this bureacracy.
