News Anchor Glo`tharius Smith: Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. We interrupt your regular programming with a momentous announcement from the Chiss Ascendancy. In a surprising turn of events, Syndic Cong`liddo Nollaig has been appointed as the new Grand Syndic, succeeding Remus Soran. This change in leadership was officially announced late in the evening. Let’s now go to our correspondent, Liara Tornar, for more details on this historic development. Liara?
Reporter: Thank you, Glo`tharius. Indeed, this is a momentous occasion for the Chiss Ascendancy. Late tonight, Syndic Cong`liddo Nollaig addressed the Chiss nation from aboard a starship in hyperspace, marking the beginning of a new era in Chiss leadership.
During his address, Grand Syndic Cong expressed his gratitude for the trust placed in him by the Chiss people. He outlined his vision for unity, prosperity, and continued expansion within the Ascendancy, emphasizing the importance of preserving Chiss traditions and values.
Let’s take a moment to listen to a brief clip from his address to the Chiss nation:

Grand Syndic Cong: “I am humbled by the opportunity to serve as your Grand Syndic. Our Ascendancy has always been guided by our traditions, our values, and we will grow together in facing the challenges of the future. Together, we will forge a path toward prosperity while preserving our unique Chiss heritage and so we rise as people to be guided by these values. After years of New Republic criminal occupation of our territory it will take a generation to erase the harms they caused, but thanks to our Imperial friends, our time is coming. My gratitude is also extended to Grand Syndics Thresk and Soran, I am blessed to stand on their shoulders to carry on their works, and fully acknowledge the great responsibility and privilege it is to lead the Chiss Ascendancy.”
Grand Syndic Cong is no stranger to leadership within the Chiss Ascendancy. He has a distinguished history, having served as commander of the Chiss Expeditionary Defense Fleet and spearheading critical operations on the frontier, including the recent efforts to combat the Purgill infestation on Gekto III and embarking on a major CEDF rearmament project.
The announcement of Syndic Cong’s appointment as Grand Syndic however comes as a surprise to many within the Chiss Ascendancy. Soran’s leadership has been marked by a commitment to stability and economic growth. Yet, it was the securing the Treaty of Uoti that is the signature mark of his leadership and his statesmanship with the wider galaxy was a credit to the Ascendancy.
This change in leadership carries great expectations and hope for the future. The torch has been passed from one dedicated leader to another, and Chiss space waits to see what this new era will bring.
News Anchor: Thank you, Liara, for that update on this historic transition in Chiss leadership. As we continue to follow this development, we will bring you more insights and reactions from within the Chiss Ascendancy. Stay tuned to CPIN for the latest developments on this significant moment in Chiss history.
