Mid-election

Resignation of Emmeline Marino

Emmeline Marino, who was Deputy President at the time, had resigned with the following statement: "After the Mutual Recognition with Australis and with the President unconstitutionally denying someone to create a political party, I announce I shall resign as Deputy President and leave DPF. It's a shame I have to do this, and I hope the President now starts to realise what he has been doing isn't the best. Good day.". After Marino's resignation, Leon Montan was appointed Deputy President.
