Lord Austin Jaax retires – Kingeston downsized

Austin Jaax of Kingeston

Sunday 22nd saw Lord Austin Jaax retire from frontline politics, resigning most of his positions within Austenasia.

This came after Lord Jaax took on a greater role in Canadian local politics, resulting in increased demands on his time.

Lord Jaax joined Austenasia in December 2018 as the Governing Commissioner of Kingeston, a new crown dependency which upon its creation consisted of an uninhabited area of farmland.

Kingeston was expanded in May last year, becoming a Town with the annexation of a part of Jaax’s family home, making himself and his brother Austenasian residents. Jaax was appointed Acting Representative of the new town, being elected to the position proper a few months later in July.

Now, however, the changes made to Kingeston in May 2020 have been reversed as a result of Jaax’s resignation. An Act of Parliament was passed yesterday, transitioning Kingeston back into a crown dependency.

Jaax will be staying on as Kingeston’s governing commissioner due to the comparatively few duties required in administering an autonomous and uninhabited claim, but has resigned from his other posts, including Baron of Kingeston; as a knight, he will therefore henceforth be known as Sir Austin.

Jaax had served as Chancellor since June 2020, and as Speaker of the House of Representatives since February earlier this year.
