Earlier today, United Secular Movements of Dovakhan (Tzâbîks Lâîk Fûjövk Dövâkhângöp) issued a memorandum of thanks to its corporate sponsors and individual donors for helping the national coalition of charities meet its fundraising goals set by its Winter of Light Campaign. The efforts bring the organisation’s annual tab thus far to eight billion Lirot ($16 million USD), which it hopes to increase to ten billion Lirot ($20 million USD) by the end of March 2008 in the Gregorian Calendar or by the end of 5768 in the Republican Calendar.
Khagan-Chancellor Ânâtöl Êfösêbâd will board the first morning train today to return to work in the capital after an extended two-week break for the Solstice celebrations. The Khagan-Chancellor is expected to deliver an address before the Dovakhanese Cama congratulating the nations on the Gregorian Calendar for the start of their new year and announcing an effort by his government towards further diplomatic rapprochement. In his address the Khagan-Chancellor is also expected to outline further economic liberalizations to come in the Cama’s spring term and on through the Dovakhanese New Year.
More specifically, the Khagan-Chancellor and his New Democratic Alliance party hope to study the privatization of such state-owned enterprises as Dövôpöjûpîk, the state pharmaceutical company, and DâbösfêtDövâkhân, the public television authority. Also on the agenda is a scheduled review of family planning measures promoted by the Department of Health’s Population Agency.
