(Alexios, Amanra) The STCC has announced the results of the Speaker’s Chair for Amanra and it is long-time Council-member Lylian Whyte. The upset began when Whyte and co-challenger Daneel Ruyden both tallied 37.5% of the popular vote, ending the five-term, 15-year run for Cassia Verhal — who was largely considered the most progressive force in Solrain politics.
A 30-year veteran of the Council, ‘Lyl’ Whyte had tried to unseat Verhal three times without success. She is a long-time member of the council and close personal friend of Demeter Garreth. Her political views are extremely conservative and her fiscal positions are “traditional.”
