Apollo Osrik Cerwyn Kódavak (Sabian: Abolo-Osrik Keruin Kodavái) is a Sabioveronese politician and poet who since 2017 has been the official Leader of the Opposition in the Parliament as leader of the Left Alliance, a position he's held since 2016. He previously served as Deputy Prime Minister of Sabia and Verona and Secretary of Diplomacy as part of the coalition government (2016–17) headed by Shounn Virny. Cerwyn is a member of the Sabioveronese Parliament representing the constituency of Gonn.

Early life

Cerwyn is a native Sabian of Caenian origin. He is the brother of fellow Left politician Hidram Cerwyn. Despite being originally from Caenia, Cerwyn belongs to the Pashqari minority of Sabia and Verona and moved to Tegula shortly after the foundation of Sabia and Verona in 2012. He graduated with a degree on law at the University of Elinore in 2013, and earned a second degree on political science from the same University in 2015.

Political career

Cerwyn started his political career in the Strawberry Party. Though he had brief interactions with the Free Suyu Front, he disliked the extremist nature of the Front's tactics, and favored the peaceful approach of the Strawberry Party. At the May 2013 general election, Cerwyn was elected to serve as boxunentir of the Courts of Sabia and Verona for Tegula. His first term in the Courts were marked by his support of the recognition of the Pashqar language's status as official language in the Kingdom.[1]

Cerwyn was a part of the conference that joined the Strawberry Party and the FSF into the Roots Party. Representing Roots, Cerwyn became Minister for the Environment in the Karasal Treaty-forged national unity cabinet formed by Napoléon Bleuberrie following the May 2013 election.[2] He was succeeded by Ryam Piper.

He joined Convergence and Amity when Roots split in 2014. For the March 2014 general election, Cerwyn became the PM-candidate of Convergence and Amity.[3] He led Convergence to win the second place in the election, behind Léon Galieri's Left Alliance.

Congress of Salisse and post-Haronos work

On 16 August 2016, Cerwyn became one of the participants of the Congress of Salisse, and as such is credited as a co-author of the present constitution of Sabia and Verona. Upon arriving in Alios, Cerwyn became involved in the Isadoran University of Darmosari, teaching law and political science and giving conferences on the legal development of Sabia and Verona and Sabioveronese history.

In May 2016 he was selected by Left Alliance members to become the party's next national leader, following the party's merge with Bakinn (Convergence).[2][4]

In the 2016 general election, Cerwyn led the Left Alliance to a third place and a much higher percentage of the popular vote than anticipated in polls.[5] With no clear majority, the table was set for negotiations between the National Artists' Guild, the second-largest party led by Prime Minister Shounn Virny, and the Left. Virny and Cerwyn spearheaded the negotiations which culminated on 22 September when it was announced both parties had reached an agreement and would form a coalition government.[6]

On 1 October 2016, Cerwyn assumed the posts of Deputy PM and Secretary of Foreign Affairs in the 8th Council of State.[7]

Personal life

Cerwyn is an atheist. He speaks Sabian natively and was a proponent of the introduction of Pashqar in the everyday culture and society of Sabia and Verona. He became a member of the Pashqar Language Authority in 2014, and was one of the authorities who declared the language extinct in 2015.

He is rumoured to have dated both Left Alliance MP Andreina Rossini and former NNS Commerce Secretary Shâssel Marlaryen.[8]
