James was tired. It had been a long day, but that was nothing unusual. When Governor Murray had invited him to come along with him to the Tanganyika Colony, the game warden had thought it a wonderful idea. Explore the open country, live like a king at the Queen's expense, and hunt the most dangerous game this side of the Mediterranean. In reality it had meant ceaseless, mind numbing errands. Iain was his friend, like a brother, even, but God how he longed to be in England again.

Dar Es Salaam was cool, in relative terms, without the sun overhead. Winding through the side corridors and low, wide streets he almost forgot how badly he wanted to be out of his damp clothes. There was, on the way to his appointed residence, a small kiosk that he liked to frequent. The man who ran it, an older fellow with a thick, grey beard named Ambokile, was kind and so he tipped him well.

James stopped in front of the small, wooden stand. He frowned. A sign hung from the bannister, 'CLOSED' scrawled in simple, blocky letters in English, German, and a handful of other local languages. He looked around, paused, and then stooped to collect a discarded newspaper. He would get a fresh copy tomorrow morning and ask Ambokile to start leaving one at his home.

The hunter paused, confused. Iain was on the front page of the August 21st edition. A smile plastered on his face, he held up a piece of paper in triumph beneath the headline: ELECTORAL REFORM FOR NATIVE FREEDOM. James scoffed and threw the paper back onto the ground. What a load of rubbish. He was sure that would be a problem for another day.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Under the direction of the new colonial governor for Tanganyika, Iain Murray, the Legislative Assembly passes a sweeping omnibus bill with his razor thin majority of appointed members. Its effect is two fold, establishing an upper house and eliminating first past the post. The upper house, a counterpart to the Legislative Assembly, called the Assembly of Chieftains, is framed as a way to give greater representation to the native population and empower traditional aspects of Tanganyikan governance. The new assembly has the primary responsibility of approving any and all actions made by its counterpart, a introduction of what Murray has called: Separation of Powers. Comprised of the leaders of the various Tanganyika tribes ethnic groups, the Assembly of Chieftains has nearly doubled the size of the legislature, with 60 members now making up this upper house. In the result of a deadlock, the governor has retained the power to make caretaker appointments to ensure stability and good governance if the two houses cannot agree on ministers.

In a further effort to better reflect the wishes of the populace at large, first past the post voting has been replaced by proportional representation, enabling the diverse and varied peoples of the colony to better express their views. With this change in voting came a change in how the government itself will function. Powers over local policing, revenue collection, and land regulation have been given over to the tribal chieftains.
