Rovens' President K'yonte resigns

The beleaguered President of Rovens has finally caved into pressure and announced
his resignation to the Rovenian provisions National Assembly, which was broadcast
live on national television.

"It is clear that the people of Rovens hold me responsible for the assassination
of Rhosei Penyassa, and for the failures of this government, and as the man at
the top, I am ultimately responsible."

The President made the announcement as a million-strong protest assembled in the
capital for the second day in a row. This followed a week of strikes and protests
nationwide, which followed riots that seized control of numerous cities two
weekend's ago, in response to the assassination of the prominent but hardline
communist twelve days ago.
