WA SECURITY COUNCIL ACT
Authored by the Empire of Great Eurussia


Emblem of the World Alliance


First Headquarters of the World Alliance Government


Current Headquarters of the World Alliance Government


New Headquarters of the World Alliance Security Council


As committed by the Eurussian Government during the passage of the Constitutional Nullification that created the supranational Tenth Security Council of the WA, we hereby present to this body the comprehensive code to ensure the stability of the world under the Security Council while upholding the principles of freedom and democracy. Hence, we propose the World Alliance Security Council Act.

Section 1 - Preamble

The World Alliance Security Council shall be the supreme and supranational governing institution of the World Alliance and all its nation states without prejudice to their inherent rights as sovereign countries such as the right to exist, the right to sovereignty, the right to independence, the right to due process, the right to association, the right to self defense, and the right to self determination. The WASC shall have the primary aim of ensuring, promoting, and developing the peace, security, and stability of the World Alliance and among its nation states.


Section 2 - Repealed by Law:

[url=http://worldalliance.postalboard.com/t41-world-alliance-security-council-act#29707]Section 2 - Composition


The de facto leadership of the WASC shall be handled by a Eurussian (Eurussia) official being the founding nation of the WA, by default, as its President, while the position of the Vice President shall be handled by an official from the nation holding the Delegacy to the World Assembly, if willing, otherwise, by appointment of the President, by default. There shall also be thirteen (13) member states representing each of the continents of the WA also appointed by the President provided that they are not puppet states, on the WA Map, and active in both roleplaying matters and out-of-character matters which can also be removed by the WASC, for any grounds, at anytime and at will. The WASC may reorganize itself, internally, for efficiency, provided that such actions will have no negative implications on the prescribed authority of each member state and overall collective authority of the WASC.



If a member state of the WASC is a proven puppet state, it can be subjected to outright and immediate ban and ejection from the WA. There must also be a minimum of three member states in the WASC before its decisions can be enforced, otherwise, its powers shall be exercised by the Founder for the benefit of the World Alliance.[/url]



Section 3 - Functions
The WASC shall have the de facto supranational powers over the executive, legislative, and judicial matters in the WA which shall be enforced through a sixty six percent concurrence of all its voting member states. Being a member state of the WASC, Eurussia, as the Founder, may exercise veto power on the WASC while the nation holding the Delegacy may exercise veto power over matters about the World Assembly but shall never be allowed to possess executive controls over the World Alliance. The WASC shall also have the authority over the administration of all WA Neutral Territories in the world.

Section 4 - Executive Authority

The WASC, under its executive authority, shall ensure the effective enforcement of the laws of the World Alliance directly or indirectly through its authorized international institutions. The WASC may appoint any of its member state in acting as officer-in-charge in an initiative through the directive of its President or through its consensus provided that the enforcement of its executive power shall be exercised by the WASC collectively.


Section 5 - Legislative Authority

The WASC, under its legislative authority, may propose international laws for the benefit of the World Alliance through its member states. All nation states of the WA may also suggest international laws through a member state of the WASC. From the day a proposal is submitted to the WASC, three days thereafter shall be the debating and amendments period and two days after shall be the voting period which can also be adjusted for efficiency unless otherwise a member state of the WASC rejects. The WASC may appoint any of its member state as officer-in-charge in administering proposals through the directive of its President or through its consensus provided that the enforcement of its legislative power shall be exercised by the WASC collectively.

Section 6 - Judicial Authority
The WASC, under its judicial authority, shall ensure the delivery of justice among member states of the WA solely based on facts and on the laws of the WA with complete transparency and due process. The WASC may appoint any of its member state as officer-in-charge in administering a complaint or a case through the directive of its President or through its consensus provided that the enforcement of its judicial power shall be exercised by the WASC collectively.

If a nation state files a complaint against another nation state, both parties shall agree to the arbitration before the complaint be heard as an international case otherwise the complaint shall not be elevated into an international case and be deemed unsuccessful. However, if the complainant nation state asks the WASC to bring the refusing nation state into compulsory arbitration, the WASC shall hold a vote to elevate the complaint into an international case which shall be based on facts beyond reasonable doubt. Thereafter, the case shall proceed and both parties can then subjected to the arbitration.

If a member state of the WASC is involved in international case, that nation state shall be prohibited from voting on any procedure of the WASC regarding the international case to ensure fairness and equality. On the other hand, if a nation state files a complaint against the WASC or any of its instrumentalities and any of their policies, the officiating nation state of the concerned international institution shall participate in the compulsory arbitration, acting in behalf of the concerned international institution.

The WASC, under its judicial authority, shall also be the sole interpreter of international laws in the WA.

Section 7 - Organization

As such, all nation states of the WA are subject to the WASC without prejudice to their sovereignty and independence.


Section 9 - Repealed by Law:


The WASC, particularly its incumbent composition, the Tenth Security Council, shall schedule a general election for the succeeding WASC through a legislation provided that there are at least three nation states in each of the continent of the World Alliance whereby each continent shall elect their representatives to the WASC which will then comprise the thirteen (13) member states of the WASC. After their proclamation, the Founder and the WA Delegate shall then become honorary member states of the WASC perpetually effectively dissolving the Tenth Security Council succeeded by the new WASC upon taking office on the first day of the succeeding month after the month of the scheduled general election of the WA.



Thereafter, all member states of the new WASC shall elect their President and Vice President, by majority vote, among themselves which they can still change anytime still by virtue of majority votes throughout their term. Each WASC shall have a term of three months.[/url]
