Nessa'sofac Ishtak-Jin'Var Wins Ithor's Senatorial Bid!
A Blue-skinned, elderly twilek female stands below a Bafforr tree on an Ithorian Plaza. Below are a crowd of Ithorians who all are rumbling loudly in a sort of applause. She raises her hand for a few moments as the crowd dies down. She slowly begins in a measured voice, "As many of you know... I am not the public speaker I once was. So I will make this brief." She looked about the crowd, "I, Nessa'sofac Ishtak-Jin'Var humbly accept the senatorial seat for Ithor, as you all voted for." another rumble flows through the crowd before she continues, "This planet took me in in my most desprate hour... And I am honored that the good people of this world have offered me the chance to give back. I will not fail you in the Senate. Thank you." There is a final round of Ithorian rumbling before the broadcast ends
Vessa Kristi Elected as Senator of Tatooine
A young, Tan skinned Arkanian woman appears on screen standing behind a podium. She has medium length White hair with Blue streaks and wears a white medical lab coat. She smiles before looking directly at the camera and speaks in a soft voice. "Thank you, people of Tatooine for placing your faith in me to represent you in the New Republic Senate. I hope to aid in bringing long standing peace and prosperity to Tatooine, it's citizens, and the Republic. Part of my plan for doing this is to maintain an open forum with the people of Tatooine. To that end, Citizens of Tatooine may reach me either by mail or on channel 4668 with questions or concerns, and I will be happy to answer them as much as I am able. I will also use this channel to continue to provide free medical care for all citizens in need." The image fades out as a New Republic Banner appears on screen.
