SANDRA Where is Yuumi?

Kyoto, Yamatai -- After serving as Imperial Premier for 10 years, what is next for former Empress Ketsurui Yuumi? With the arrival of YE 43, it will soon be 10 years since the Imperial Premier took the position in YE 33. The Constitution of the Yamatai Star Empire, adopted in YE 34, specifies the position as a 5-year term with elections occurring on years ending in 0 or 5. Yuumi was elected by default in YE 40 for her third term.

Raised and groomed to serve as Empress by former Emperor Uesu, she served as Empress from YE 21 to YE 23 when she was killed by an Elysian attack that destroyed Geshrinopolis. After Ketsurui Hanako and the crew of the YSS Sakura found and rescued a restored copy of her in YE 29, she returned to Yamatai and restarted her career in politics.

Originally the premier was planned to have a two-term limit for a total of ten years. Now that ten years have passed, experts are speculating about whether Yuumi will retire, wait until YE 45 to exit, or run for re-election for a fourth term. The reason for this speculation is that Yuumi has been astonishingly reclusive. She has not made one public appearance since YE 40 and has not responded to communications from her ambassadors. Some members of the public have called upon the Empress to dismiss Yuumi, but it is unclear if she has the constitutional power to do so. However, the senate may be able to make a vote of no confidence and trigger the election of an interim Imperial Premier.
