(Passed) Amend WA General Elections Act

Post  Great Eurussia on Sun May 03, 2015 6:07 pm

Amendment to WA GENERAL ELECTIONS ACT
Authored by the Empire of Great Eurussia


This is an IC/OOC proposal.
This proposal is not a means to change or alter the objectives or aspirations of the WA General Elections Act but this proposal and amendment aims to provide more privileges to the elected member states of the Security Council due to the fact they were elected democratically by the whole World Alliance. The proponent just realized lately that these provisions should have been included during the deliberations of the passed WA General Elections Act and most importantly, the by-elections.
Therefore, the provisions below shall replace the existing and corresponding provisions under the WA General Elections Act and add any other provision as stipulated herein;

Section 1) This Act shall replace the existing and current ways and methods of getting sovereign states of the WA becoming member states of the Security Council. But it shall maintain its voting requirements of sixty six percent concurrence of all its voting member states to enforce any executive, legislative, or judicial action. It shall maintain its capability to reorganize itself internally for efficiency. There must still be at least three member states of the Security Council to enforce its decisions, otherwise, the Founder, may still exercise its powers for extraordinary circumstances for the benefit of the World Alliance.
Previous version:

Section 1) This Act shall replace the existing and current ways and methods of getting sovereign states of the WA becoming member states of the Security Council. But it shall maintain its voting requirements of sixty six percent concurrence of all its voting member states to enforce any executive, legislative, or judicial action. It shall maintain its capability to reorganize itself internally for efficiency. It may also remove or suspend any of its member states, elected or endorsed, for any grounds any time, and at will, provided that seventy five percent of all its members are in favor of the same. There must still be at least three member states of the Security Council to enforce its decisions, otherwise, the Founder, may still exercise its powers for extraordinary circumstances for the benefit of the World Alliance.
Section 7) If any of the elected seats of the Security Council, aside from the Presidency and Vice Presidency, has a vacancy resulting from dismissal or resignation or in any manner, the Presidency shall immediately order the Founder or any other officer-in-charge of elections at the time of vacancy to hold special elections to fill up the vacancy to serve the remaining term of office.
Previous version:


Section 7) If any of the elected seats of the Security Council, aside from the Presidency and Vice Presidency, has a vacancy resulting from dismissal or resignation or in any manner, the next in line based on the final ranking of the highest number of votes on the preceding general election beyond the top thirteen nation states that assumed the elected seats, shall have the privilege to immediately assume the vacant elected seat, unless otherwise revoked voluntarily. 


Section 8) However, if the office of the Presidency becomes vacant resulting from dismissal or resignation or in any manner, the Vice Presidency shall assume as the Acting Presidency, if willing. And if not, the WA Delegate shall assume as the acting Presidency, if willing. And if not, the Founder then. Until a new duly elected Presidency has been elected by the Security Council among the incumbent elected seats. If such procedure is unsuccessful in filling up the vacancy on the Presidency, the Acting Presidency shall immediately order the Founder or any other officer-in-charge of the elections at the time of vacancy to hold special elections to fill up the vacancy on the Presidency to serve the remaining term of office. The Acting Presidency is prohibited on exercising the powers vested to the elected Presidency unless otherwise as may be provided by law or with approval of the Security Council.
Previous version:

Section 8) However, if the office of the Presidency becomes vacant resulting from dismissal or resignation or in any manner, the WA Delegate shall temporarily assume as the acting Presidency, if willing. And if not, the Founder then. Until a new duly elected Presidency has been elected by the Security Council among the incumbent elected seats.


Section 17) For any vacancy on elected seats in the Security Council, the Security Council itself may opt to conduct special elections one month after the incumbents' start of their term or two months after the incumbents' start of their term, whichever is convenient and practical on the discretion of the Security Council, to fill up the aforementioned vacancies by which shall serve the remaining term of the incumbent Security Council's term of office.


Section 18) The elected seats of the Security Council can only be subjected to a dismissal from the Security Council by virtue of a seventy five percent concurrence of all voting member states of the Security Council on the grounds of violating any existing international laws of the World Alliance as attested by a guilty verdict arising from a judicial case.
The proposal may now be debated within three (3) days.

Against; with the way you've made a WASC member first have to be proven guilty of breaking the international law, then they have to be voted out by 75% of the security council. Think of it as DPRK, if there's only a couple of friends that the country has, they can hold that seat simply by voting against whether or not the country is in the wrong, so long as the vote falls below 75%. You're making it extremely difficult to get rid of bad apples, and as such, I must vote against.

Eurussia concurs, it is precisely the intention of the law itself. Previously, under the appointment system of the Security Council, it MUST be easy for a member of the SC to be removed from the body. However, this time, since the seats of the Security Council are now DULY ELECTED by the World Alliance, the privilege of getting elected and the fact that a nation has been chosen by most resident nations of the WA, there must have an accompanying privilege in office and that is being hard from being removed. It is like impeaching a President.
