Indonesian Micronations Parting with Harjakarta
Indonesian micronations expressed their sorrow after learning the news about Harjakarta dissolution. Harjakarta has successfully developed itself as an example of a moderate micronation that able to mediate conflicting parties and micronations. Tommy’s micronational career that has spanned for almost a decade, would also caused further loss to the community that has been extremely accustomed with his presence in the organisation.
Theodorus Diaz said, “I am honoured to know Tommy as a friend, and as an ally.” Diaz further requested Indonesian micronations to show their respect, and to remember Harjakarta as a great role model for the community.
Falalian leader, Muhammad I also requested that the community shall respect any personal decision that has been decided by Tommy, including to disband his micronation.
“We Should Immediately Convene”
Vacancy of the Chairman position after Harjakarta departure forced AIM General Assembly to convene on a special session to resolve the issue. The issue was made further complicated since the AIM Charter are yet to regulate on the case of vacancy of chairman office.
AIM Secretary General, Eri Septio proposed the special session to convene tomorrow (04/07). Theodorus Diaz also requested that the General Assembly shall immediately appoint a caretaker to replace the chairman.
Several delegations also propose amendments to other articles of the Charter to be jointly amended with the necessary articles on chairman’s vacancy. One of the proposed amendment is on articles concerning conditions of membership revocation that was regulated by the By-laws.
