Wes Erni

Weston John (Wes) Erni is a former citizen of Talossa and of Atatürk Province. He served two terms as Seneschal and also served as Secretary of State during the 20th Cosa.

Erni became a Talossan citizen in August of 1985.

After the renunciations of 2004 that created the Talossan Republic, Erni was appointed to one of the many abandoned Senate seats, but did not stand for re-election when that seat was put before the electorate at the conclusion of his Cosa of service.

After King Robert I abdicated in August of 2005, Erni, who had retained his citizenship, was asked by the former King to bring suit in the Uppermost Court seeking to invalidate the election that had given the reins of power to the Conservative Loyalist Party by nullifying the citizenships of sixteen new voters, who the King had believed were improperly processed through immigration by CLP leader Fritz von Buchholtz. The resulting case, Erni v. Talossa, was decided in favour of the government.

Erni's participation in Talossa waned thereafter, and his citizenship lapsed.
