According to sources in the Panem political circles, the convention locations for the Liberty, Labor, Conservative, and Civic Parties have already been selected and are awaiting formal announcement. More to come…
UPDATE 1: The Liberty National Committee chairman, Vance Ersine, took to the stage a few moments ago.
“Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. It’s been a pleasure to serve as chairman of this fantastic party for the past year, and it’s going to be a pleasure to serve yet another four years after my recent reelection as chairman. *applause* Thank you. As you know, the Liberty National Convention will be held very soon. It is with great pride that I announce that the second Quadrennial Liberty National Convention will occur July 17 through July 20 in District 4. While Districts 14 and 7 offered very lucrative options for this convention, we feel that District 4 is the best bet at this time. We look forward to bringing yet another Liberty administration to the Capitol in January by the means of Vice President Celine Oswald and Governor Dale Wilson.”
UPDATE 2: The Conservative National Committee chairman, Taylor Walters, has entered the room.
“Welcome, members of the press. It’s a pleasure to be here, and what a whirlwind process we have gone through. Hardly any of us expected to have such interest in bids for our national convention, but it became quite difficult very quickly. Through our process, we toured Districts 1, 5, and 6, and rediscovered the amazing nation of Panem. Without further ado, I shall unveil our selection of the dates and locations of the first Conservative National Convention. The convention will be held in District 1, from July 22 to July 24. While District 5 and District 6 presented valid reason to hold the convention, we feel that District 1 will be an excellent choice overall. We look forward to the nomination of Secretary Rick Canth and his running mate Kurtis Pierce at the convention and their win in the fall.”
UPDATE 3: The Labor National Committee chairwoman, Belinda Casto, has approached the podium.
“Hello, everyone! Wow, what an audience tonight. It’s exciting to see such support for the Labor Party. *applause* Tonight is a very special night. It’s a night that will begin a new phase in Panem’s history- one led by Governor Felicia Ren and Governor Walter Delta. This phase will usher in a new era of success for Panem, a peaceful one at that. No more will we have to worry about yet another war to be involved in, no more lives to lose overseas. Instead, we will keep our families together, our friends close. This era will begin at the Labor National Convention, to be held in District 10 from July 25 to July 27.”
UPDATE 4: The Civic National Committee chairman, Joshua Mason, has entered the room.
“Good evening, everyone! As you very well know, I am Joshua Mason, the Civic National Committee chairman. *applause* Thank you. The Civic Party is growing, is it not? After all, look at this crowd. This crowd is one that is hopeful- hopeful of change, of success, of peace. This crowd does not simply accept the Liberty Party, or the Labor Party, or the Conservative Party as the answer to their problems. *cheers* This crowd clearly understands that the Civic Party approach is the only way to go. Therefore, we will bring the change back to the Capitol from July 28 to July 30 in District 8. Not only will we usher Secretary Paylor and Secretary Trenton into the Capitol, but we will bring a successful alternative and a change there too.”
