Sean Khan announces retirement from politics

Former President and Green Party leader, Sean Khan has announced his retirement from Parliament in a public statement today. Khan who was President of Slokais from 2001 to 2009 and was Vice-President from 2021 to 2023, also announced he will not attend to run in the next Presidential Election.

Khan, who was born in what became Andhrapur and immigrated to Slokais at age 14 is regarded as one of the most influential modern Presidents. Starting as an environmental lawyer, Khan took the Green Party from infancy to a major political party in just 15 years through a combination of liberal policy and popular economic reforms. Widely blamed for the Second Kaijan War, and criticized for his hesitation to use force in Kaijan, Khan lost in 2008. Despite this, Khan remained a key part of the Green Party’s leadership and continued to be an environmental lawyer and activist. In 2020, Khan ran for President again, although he lost, he was chosen as Joseph Chavez’s VP after Alexandra Ahmad stepped up to become Prime Minister.

When asked about his reasoning, Khan stated “It’s time for someone new, there are so many young leaders, and at age 65, it doesn’t feel right to represent their views anymore”. When asked if he believes that other older leaders should retire, Khan admitted he had other secondary reasons. “I can’t do enough in my current position as a leader, I don’t know what my next step is, I’m probably going to do so more writing, to be honest with you”. Sources have also speculated, that Khan may stay at his mountain cabin in the Silverado Mountains in his time away from politics. The Green Party now must find itself a new leader, a decision picked by the Green Party’s members believed to be in a few months.

In related political news, a new poll has shown the New Right as leading in preference by voters with 25%, followed by the National Alliance at 23%. Experts have suggested, that right-wing voters are fed up with Conservatives over the Kaijan Issue, while both the National Alliance and Greens are losing ground to the more radical Socialist-Labor. In addition, the Centrist Party has dropped even lower in polling with many Minjian voters leaving after Joseph Zhang’s departure last year.
