Queen Bee To Become Powerless Figurehead as Local Hive Transitions to Representative Democracy

MELBOURNE, FL – In a sweeping and stunning political move, a local beehive has decided to officially transition from monarchy to representative democracy leaving the hive’s queen to become a ceremonial leader devoid of governing power. 

The new government will allow all bees, including worker drones to vote as part of a new democratic system. Elections for the Hive of Representatives will be held in the fall. However, since the monarchy has played such an important part in the hive’s past, the queen will still remain a prominent figure and the royal wedding of her grandsons will be celebrated with much fanfare.
