The room was not an impressive one. Windowless, and dark - limited video screens around the peremeter, yet, it was all the newly elected Senator, Gideon Hask-Starr, had been able to get at short notice. Nestled deep within the United Protectorates Legislative HQ, the room was to serve as host for the first meeting of the 'Imperial Congressional Caucus' - a fancy sounding name for 'Newby Imperial Party Senators Club'. Gideon was not niave, he was very much aware that his infuence was limited, indeed, he had worked out that, if needed, he could probably count on two other Senators from the Imperial Faction to back a motion of his, or to be swayed by his arguements. However, the Caucus was a way for the lesser-known Senators to coordinate their agenda, and maybe, just maybe, get some motions and bills through, or stopped, that they wanted. Today was, therefore, a strategy meeting. Invitations had been sent out to Imperial Party members, and members of the Sith Empire more aligned with political causes, and, force-willing, they could leave today with some sort of plan of action moving forward. Entering the room, Gideon took his seat, and looked around. He wasted no time in getting down to the business of the day: "Good Afternoon, and thank you all for coming. For a great many of us, the field of politics as laid out by this 'Protectorate' is a new one, it is different to how the Empire did things, and to an extend, collaboration with the Mandalorians and Independents will be needed to ensure that the Protectorate is kept on track. Today, I would like us to decide what an Imperial Party led future will look like, what is the vision we can sell to the electorate, and then build upon in the House? For me, I think the answer begins with playing to our strengths. Industry. Security. Strength. The watchwords of the Imperial message, and I would therefore like to propose that our legislative agenda and strategy is build around those three core messages." He fell silent, waiting to see if others would chime in. OOC - This is open to all Imperial Party Senators.
