(Dismissed) Amend WA Accountability Act

Post  UnitedStatesOfScouting on Sun Dec 28, 2014 4:17 pm

Over the past weeks, I've noticed a few of the WASC members tend to go inactive several days at a time. Legally, we cannot petition for their removal until 7 days of inactivity has passed. Most legislative articles go on a 2 day discussion and 2 day voting period. Which mean approx 4-5 days before a topic is either passed or dismissed. With the obvious fact that each WASC member has a duty to review each pending legislation, I feel that it is necessary that we tighten the inactivity law. changes to the law below are outlined in red.

WA Accountability Act, Rev. 1.0:

With the aim of ensuring that the most responsible nation states and the most active ones are deserving to serve at the World Alliance Government, to ensure the efficiency of the institution, Eurussia proposes the passage of this proposal into law, the World Alliance Accountability Act.

Under this law, all nation states of the World Alliance that are serving and holding any position at the World Alliance Government are obliged to maintain their activeness in the delivery of service and discharge of their duties as part of the World Alliance Government.

Thus, any member state of the WA Government, which will be proven inactive for five (5) days can be dismissed from their position. To ensure due process, in the case of the Security Council, if a member state is found to be inactive, any member state of the World Alliance petitioned to any member state of the Security Council who shall then serve a notice (via TG and via Forum Post) giving the concerned member state noticing them of their pending dismissal by the President of the WASC. The member state complaining against the inactive member state may formally request the immediate head of the body, which in this case the President of the Security Council, to issue the dismissal. Should a member state be dismissed, the member state has 48 hours to petition he removal. Upon petition, if within the 48 hour time frame, the WASC is required to review the member nation's reasoning behind his/her inactivity and vote on reinstatement of said member state. Should the vote pass, the member state will be reinstated with no further punishments for being inactive.

On the other hand, to ensure fairness, any member state of the WA Government, knowing that there is a strong probability of inactivity due to acceptable grounds, may file a leave of absence to the immediate head of the body, which in the case of the Security Council is its President and if the latter is the concerned member state to its immediate subordinates, stating the reasons for the leave of absence and the duration (via TG and Forum Post) which thereafter shall determine and approve the said request for a leave of absence. And if approved, the concerned member state may terminate the leave of absence (via Forum Post only) and cannot exercise its powers and privileges during the leave of absence.

Eurussia is not supportive of this amendment since we believe the 7-day period is the most reasonable time frame since it is equivalent to 1 week.

If you're going to be gone for a week then you should have a LOA. Plus with the way it is currently you actually have 9 days. Since you get 2 extra days to say you're active.

Why would you want to have a member nation AWOL for 11 days PLuS 2 days to say that they're active? We have leave of absence for a reason...

I agree, I think it should be reduced to five days, then the two days to explain. That gives a week. Still the original week long thing but reduces it to a moderate amount of time. This sound fair for everyone?

My amendment suggests 5 days only with 48 hours AFTER removal to appeal to the council. This way the council has more of a say in a member nations inactivity.

Unfortunately, we became lost in the sea of words and opinions, but the majority of it appears just and decisive. New Rhodinia is in favor.
