Yuri Allcca Canchasto (born 16.II.1649 AN) is a New Alexandrian politician, diplomat, and geopolitical consultant who currently serves as Vice-President of the Government of Nouvelle Alexandrie and Secretary of State. He is the founder and the party leader of the Moderate Caucus. He was first elected to public office in the 1703 general election as an independent Deputy to the Federal Assembly from the Wechua Nation. Ideologically a centrist and an advocate of "a balance between government and markets, the state and the individual, the federal and the regional", Canchasto has a reputation as a pragmatic workhorse.

A practitioner of "pragmatic diplomacy", learned from his former mentor Vicaquirao Alvarez, Canchasto has played a prominent role in shaping the foreign policy of Nouvelle Alexandrie, especially during the Great Vanic Revolt, Operation Landslide, and major foreign policy events for Nouvelle Alexandrie. As Secretary of State, he has pursued closer diplomatic relations with New Alexandrian neighbors such as The Hexarchy, Hurmu, Lac Glacei, Anahuaco, Zeed, and Suren. He has also has championed greater New Alexandrian involvement and international leadership in the Micras Treaty Organization, the Raspur Pact, and the Euran Economic Union, all serving as key bases for his preferred internationalist policies.

Alvarez's personal views have been described as "progressive", "international", politically centrist, and "strong anti-communist". He is an advocate for human rights organizations and for "cultivating a strong Raspur Pact". Critics described him as hawkish or "foreign policy hardliner" on some issues such as Çakaristan-New Alexandrian relations and Calbain-New Alexandrian relations.

Early Life

Born to a family of subsistence farmers outside Apurimaq, Wechua Nation in 1649 AN, Canchasto was given a basic education and was put to work promptly by the local ayllu in community building projects. He registered for military service soon after completing several years of local ayllu employment in 1666 AN at age 17, before moving to the Wechua capital of Parap in 1668 AN at the conclusion of his military service.

Entry into politics

After the collapse of the first Wechua kingdom and the Restoration, Canchasto entered politics serving as a civil servant that specialized in providing advice and consultation to Vicaquirao Alvarez at the beginning of his first term as Inkap Rantin of the then-independent Wechua Nation in 1673 AN. He served as Deputy Minister of Defense from 1678 AN until 1680 AN. He served as Secretary for the Audit Chamber from 1680 AN until 1685 AN, where he developed a reputation for being incisive, irreverent, and effective at preventing inefficiencies, fighting corruption, and terminating unlawful operations in the Wechua government. He resigned after the signing of the Proclamation of Punta Santiago in 1685 AN, in order to allow a new government to form.

Whims and Customs speech

In 1685 AN, Canchasto supported the creation of the Federation that is now Nouvelle Alexandrie. In a speech at a private political forum in early 1686 AN, however, he voiced concerns about his fear that the Wechua Nation would "become subservient to the whims and customs of other peoples". He came under serious criticism from political figures, business leaders, and even some Intian religious leaders. He promptly issued a brief yet contrite apology following the intense backlash created by his statements. Dubbed the "Whims and Customs Speech" by some in the media, the scandal damaged the carefully constructed brand of competence, fairness, and honesty that Canchasto enjoyed.

Private sector

From 1686 AN until 1693 AN, Canchasto remained in political limbo as his fortunes slowly reversed and changed. During this time, he held no political office. He founded Chicherias Canchasto in 1687 AN, a company that brewed specialty and popular varieties of chichas and kombuchas that became wildly popular in Nouvelle Alexandrie and in Ransenar. In 1689 AN, Chicherias Canchasto revived an old, classic Martino brand of rum, La Jueza Rum, using its original Cibolan recipe.

In 1693 AN, Canchasto was hired by his mentor and good friend, Vicaquirao Alvarez, to lead the Alvarez Foundation after Alvarez retired from national politics after the 1693 general elections. Serving as the Chairman of the Alvarez Foundation from 1694 AN to 1696 AN allowed Canchasto to develop a network of diplomatic, intelligence, and military connections throughout Micras, especially through Alvarez's service in the Micras Treaty Organization as Deputy Secretary-General. He resigned as Chairman in 1696 AN, encouraged by his mentor to pursue public office again.

Candidate for Mayor of Parap

In 1700 AN, Canchasto ran for Mayor of the city of Parap, running as an independent, non-partisan candidate. Waging a vigorous campaign that energized activists and voters alike, Canchasto was defeated by Nelson Allcarima of the Social Democratic and Liberal Alliance, but only by 3 points - the narrowest victory for Mayor of Parap in the history of the city.

The campaign propelled him to super high name recognition and aided greatly in the recover of Canchasto's public image. Coupled with populist rhetoric, he campaigned on issues affecting indigenous and poor communities, advocating housing reform, a drastic expansion of public transportation, and more equal redistribution of money from local resource extraction.

After his loss in the Mayor campaign, Canchasto returned to serve as CEO of Chicherias Canchasto until his second resignation in 1702 AN.

Deputy of the Federal Assembly

In 1702 AN, Canchasto resigned as CEO of Chicherias Canchasto to run as an independent Deputy of the Federal Assembly. Initially seeking nomination as a Deputy for the Federal Humanist Party, Canchasto instead opted to pursue an independent candidacy after connecting with two other aspiring independent candidates for Deputy from Alduria, Christian Clavier and Émile Dumont.

Leaning on the network of connections and fundraising developed for his unsuccessful run for Mayor of Parap, Canchasto was able to run a very effective and well-funded campaign throughout the Wechua Nation. Initially starting the campaign with the intention of running up the score in Parap, soon Canchasto saw himself campaigning in Rimarima, Taulliraju, Judah, and Huancavelica as his candidacy picked up greater steam and demand for public appearances soared beyond expectations. He was able to secure a sizeable amount of the vote on his own, enough to secure his seat in the Federal Assembly's 3rd session comfortably.

Political kingmaker, leader of the Moderate Caucus

In the aftermath of the 1703 general election, Canchasto, together with Christian Clavier and Émile Dumont, founded the Moderate Caucus with him as the leader of the new political grouping, and with Canchasto's sister, Sayarumi Canchasto, serving as Party Secretary. The party was founded based on the Common Sense Principles. These principles center around three main themes: favor the establishment of a prosperous market economy, prevent the erosion of civil rights and expand the freedoms of New Alexandrians, and to dissolve the Chamber of Peers to turn it into an elected Senate. The three Deputies had seen that there was an opportunity for them to enter into a coalition with the Social Democratic and Liberal Alliance, which needed two more seats to obtain a majority after the 1703 general election. Negotiating with Julio Delgado and the SDLA, Canchasto was able to enter government and secure the position of Secretary of State of Nouvelle Alexandrie in the new coalition government.
