As I stated before in the regional Discord: I won't run again for Member of the General Assembly. My activity as member has been lower than expected and I haven't even drafted the proposal I wanted to propose. I probably chose the worst time for running, I spent these months studying every week and when I had the chance to do something else apart from voting was like a week ago. My idea for the proposal for changing the way the Supreme Court is chosen made less sense than in the beginning, and I dropped it.
So, my reasons are how I failed to fulfill my electoral promises and the amount of candidates running. I hope every candidate will do it far better than I did.
Unity In Diversity,
My question is how do I create a vote on something in the General Assembly
Greetings, President of the United Socialist States in the Middle East (Mustafa Awad)
Welcome! If you’re asking how to submit a proposal to the WA, all you need to do is go to the proposals page for either the General Assembly or Security Council, and there’s a “Submit a Proposal” button you can click on. You’ll need at least two endorsements to be able to submit one (I’ll endorse you so you have your first one) but once you have that you should be good to go.
Let me know if any of that doesn’t make sense, I just woke up so it might be a little confusing, lol.
General Assembly Announcement: Dual Citizenship Minor Amendment (Holding Offices) has PASSED the General Assembly in a unanimous vote (7-0).
Asturies-Llion - FOR, "The original bill can be interpreted in a wrong way, and the amendment clarifies the first section"
Grod Island - FOR, "It's a good amendment which will clarify the Dual Citizenship bill."
HELP ME TAKE OVER THE WORLD PLEASE - FOR, "I think it will clarify section 1 of the Dual Citizenship bill."
Kongoland - FOR, "Some of the original bill's wording seems quite unclear, and the amendment will fix this problem."
Podria - FOR, "I think this is a good little piece of legislation that will clarify the code of laws."
Soviet Catgirls - FOR, "This changes the wording to be in line with how the GA has come to agree it should be handled. However, it should mention that it was edited by visitor Galfridine (TRR) on the Discord server."
Talao - FOR, "Same reasons as my last couple votes."
Unity in Diversity!
General Assembly Announcement: I would like to present Right to Bear Arms Bill for a regional forum. Please feel free to discuss the bill on the RMB. The discussion period will end in 24 hours.
The bill seeks to grant people the right to bear arms.
The bill shall be implemented immediately.
The right to bear arms is guaranteed to all Assemblians;
Bear arms are defined as the arms of a bear;
Those in possession of bear arms will be found really friggin' cool.
Unity in Diversity!
With all due respect, it is customary for GAs to stop working once a general election begins unless something urgent comes up that needs legislating on. This is so we aren't distracting from the election itself, which a joke law seems particularly likely to do! 😛
Based. Full support.
Not really sure what to say. You would have to ask Podria as they're still speaker. He's just given me premission to put the results of the vote on RMB and introduce legislation on the RMB.
I am announcing my candidacy for Secretary this March, 2021! Please check out my manifesto below:
Podria for Secretary!
Progress, Unity, Diversity
Hello everybody! I am Podria, and I am running for Secretary this General Election. For my formal resumé: I am currently Speaker and Member of the 20th General Assembly. I also serve dually as Minister of Roleplay and Minister of Community Affairs, and have served as Minister of Roleplay for some time now, but only stepped up to the post of Community Affairs after the previous holder departed the region in January. Before this term, I have served as Member of the General Assembly in the 15th, 16th, and 17th General Assemblies (that's since November of 2019!), as Vice Secretary of the Leftist Assembly, Minister of World Assembly Affairs, and as Ambassador to The Internationale. Needless to say, I am well experienced in all branches of the government - from regional law to gameside mechanics to community involvement to foreign relations, I've done it all and I hope to do it in a greater and more impactful capacity as your Secretary. Beyond my formal experience, I've also been an active member of the community since the founding of my nation in Fall of 2018, I am currently pursuing a degree in Public and Nonprofit Management, I am actively involved in my local Democratic Socialists of America chapter, and in general I am absolutely stoked to be able to serve The Leftist Assembly as Secretary.
As Secretary I plan on taking this region down a different path than has been taken previously. The greatest thing I will once again bring back to the region is a volunteer corps of Assemblians who will serve as aides to Ministers. While previously this has been known by the term civil service, I wish to differentiate this new programme from the old initiative. I believe my experience in real life volunteering and organising, combined with my extensive knowledge on the running, operations, and needs of the various facets and goings-on of the region will allow for this programme to be the best it can possibly be. I believe that many ministries, in ways big or small can be assisted by increased helping hands. In addition to this, I also intend on continuing the growth of the region's foreign presence with other socialist, communist, anarchist, and progressive regions on the site; I believe that left-wing regions on NationStates must continue to remain united against fascists, capitalists, and neo-conservatives that threaten basic human decency and human rights. Finally, I want to ensure that the duties of the executive are fulfilled to the highest quality and deepest completeness - I want to make sure that what the executive does is well explained to and understood by the Assemblians, I want to make sure that our actions are as transparent as possible, and in general, I want people to be able to know more about what happens in the executive - too long has the cabinet acted mostly in the shadows and behind closed doors. Of course I will also officially remove Kava's ability to double post, declare France illegal, promptly invade the CCD, and work tirelessly to destroy NationStates once and for all.
I believe that I am the most experienced and fit in the race to serve as your Secretary, and I hope that what you've read so far brings you to the same conclusion. I will work as hard and as much as I possibly can to make this region the best I can make it, and I know this cannot and should not be a one person fight. I intend on being a Secretary for the people and will try my hardest to act as an extension of the will of all of the Assemblians, and want to make my Secretaryship one of Progress, Unity, and Diversity. I want to make abundantly clear that I am always open to suggestions, questions, comments, concerns, or any other communiques from Assemblians to ensure that I have the most representative term as Secretary ever. As part of this, I'd like people to know that in addition to telegramming me they can also send me a Discord DM (Hugh Mungus#6146), an email (firstname.lastname@example.org), or submit something via the suggestion box which I intend to expand and utilise as much as possible. Really, all I want to do is serve this region the best I can, and ensure that our region is as enriched as possible. If this doesn't convince you, feel free to contact me and I'll do my best to make sure that you know that I'm fighting for you and for our region.
For Progress, for Unity, for Diversity. Vote Podria for Secretary!
