Indian Genius for Senate

Introduction

I, Indian Genius is going for the Senate in November, and giving some of my personal views about the future of Thaecia. I believe in centrism betweenGovernment, and of The People of Thaecia.

Section: I The Main Campaign

Partial Direct Democracy:Yes, Direct Democracy. Some would say that this is an old proposal, but it is still not amended. I want Partial Direct Democracy to be amended, as it reduces corruption, and increases efficiency. Suppose, if some Senators go offline for a week, there will be delay in amending important laws. I have also a bill for that, gives the power to the people, thus reduces corruption in the government. nation=indian_genius/detail=factbook/id=1256023
If its amended, Thaecian Congress will work more efficiently, as the elections for passing a bill will be checked by the people and the elections will be like a snap election and will take no time. I believe people should be the voice of the region rather than some corrupted MP. And two MPs, Fishergate and Snowflame have sponsored the bill. My bill will regulate the Congress, and increase the efficiency and accountability of Thaecian Congress.

Unicameralism:Yes, that same old issue, which is idiocy, isn't it? NO, it isn't. As I believe in centrism, I also want Unicameralism. Why? Because there is no use of a Bicameral Parliament, it is inefficient and leads to corruption, and I find it logic-less that why is a Senate bill more important than a petition. My vision is that there will be the same number of seats in the Unicameral Parliament as of the present House of Commons and Senate combined. The laws in the Constitution of Thaecia has to be curved according to the manifesto. These are my views, and we will hold a referendum for the former said things to be amended. As I believe in centrism.

Section:II The Extended Campaign

The Roleplay Minister: The RP minister has nothing to do with the mainstream NationStates, so he may be any member of the Parliament or the Legislative Branch. This is the current system, so I have no problem with it.

The Justice Minister: My vision is that the Justice Minister should not be in any Political party, so that there is no chance of unequal views. So that, there is no corruption.

The Electoral Commissioner: The Electoral Commissioner as well, should not be in a Political party. Even if the Commissioner is in, then there should a Electoral Secratory who is not in any party and checks the elections. I am going to write a bill on that soon. The Commissioner will conduct the elections of the bills in a Partial Direct Democratic Government. The bills which are proposed first should be set to elections first.

The Speaker of the Parliament: There should only be one Speaker as according to Unicameral System.

Post Statement: The Cultural Minister, The Foreign Affairs Minister and The Home Minister hasn't been discussed because I think that all the laws about them are good enough.

A Well-Maintained Military: I believe that there should be a well-maintained military, so that we can retaliate any attack from other regions. And I wish that the Defence Minister is selected soon.

My campaign for the vacant Senate seat, if anyone of u has any problem, lodge it in the RMB or #general of discord and mention me, I will explain my logic to u. Anyone, literally, UNI member, TPU member, TPP member, any non-party resident, anyone.

Fishergate wrote:Announcement from the Chairman of the Unity Party

Following a thorough and lengthy review of our party's manifesto and internal constitution, involving advice and suggestions from many different party members, the Unity Party of Thaecia is proud to release it's new, improved manifesto and constitution:


Overview


The Unity Party of Thaecia (UNI) is a catch-all political party. It was founded on July 19th 2019, after a merger between the Pirate, Freedom Alliance and Solidarity parties of Thaecia and has since grown to include members from all across Thaecia's political landscape. The main objective of the party is forming effective and organised leadership for Thaecia and adopting policies based on what is the best for the region, rather than what serves solely our own interests.

Home Affairs

  1. The Unity Party of Thaecia stands against the ejection from the region of multiple members of the former Thaecian Reformist Party and will endeavour to bring justice to those affected by this action.

  2. We believe that Thaecia's should adopt a unicameral legislature as this will improve the quality of Congressional leadership, the scope of debate within Congress, and the representation of voters by Congress. The Unity Party will push for a regional referendum on this issue.

  3. The Unity Party of Thaecia believes that the Minister of Home Affairs should increase interaction on the RMB and discord. We believe that the minister is responsible with greeting new residents, as well as instructing them with any questions regarding the functioning of the government and politics in our region. An active and interactive minister helps turn Thaecia into a better community for all.

  4. The Unity Party of Thaecia believes in semi-absolute freedom of speech, so long as it doesen't violate any of NationStates' rules. We reject banning any individual of this region due to them having their own political beliefs, and we will always seek to oppose amendments or laws which infringe on this right.

  5. We believe that any type of immigration is beneficial to regions as a whole in NationStates, as new people help making our region larger, improving activity and allowing for more interaction and activity between citizens.



Foreign Affairs

  1. The Unity Party of Thaecia believes that Thaecia should adopt a progressive approach when it comes to inter-regional relations. We reject simply building embassies just for the sake of building embassies. We support finding pro-active new allies which are not involved in raiding and hold peaceful relations with the inter-regional community, in order to expand Thaecia's influence in NationStates.

  2. We support the upkeep and maintence of an active and experienced Ambassadorial Corps, which works with the Foreign Affairs Ministry to promote better relations between Thaecia and it's embassy regions.

  3. The Unity Party of Thaecia supports the freedom of a of a strong defender led military to act decisively in the region's best interests. We believe the military should be able to respond quickly to threats without requiring Congressional approval and that it can be held accountable for its actions afterwards. Although active raiding should not be a primary goal of our region. the Unity Party supports collective raiding or military missions within interregional cooperation or mandate, which improves our military and foreign presence in nationstates and builing a strong idenity in Nationstates.

  4. Our party believes that Thaecia can benefit from joining inter-regional organisations, but we believe any opportunity to do so must be considered carefully to ensure that Thaecia will benefit from joining and we reject any inter-regional organisation that will not benefit Thaecia.



Culture and Roleplay Affairs

  1. The Unity Party of Thaecia believes that Thaecian roleplay should remain independent of politics and should be allowed as much autonomy as possible. However, we accept that the Thaecian government should retain the ability to take control of the roleplay, but only when absolutely necessary, such as when the roleplay's internal management breaks down.

  2. We believe that the Culture Minister should work with the organisation of monthly regional events (for example regional online games or competitions), as a way to promote activity and interaction in the region. We also believe that the Culture Minister should organise weekly polls with a variety of different topics, as a way of promoting interaction on the RMB.



Justice and Law Affairs

  1. The Unity Party of Thaecia opposes any attempts to establish copyright laws in Thaecia (Eg: Copyright laws for party logos or any other government or privately owned institutions). We believe copyright laws in a game like NationStates are unnecessary, and only restrict the freedom of citizens.

  2. Our party opposes the usage of government-owned institutions and government privileges in campaigning. Therefore we believe acts such as using of communications privileges to send region-wide telegrams campaigning on behalf or against a party or candidate, or the usage of the WFE or government-owned nations to campaign on behalf or against a party or candidate, should be criminalised.

  3. We believe that the Justice Minister, with consent of the Prime Minister and the President, should be allowed to have the powers to temporarily close the regional borders during an election. This power could be used in order to prevent the influx of puppets during an election, which may influence the results.

  4. The Unity Party of Thaecia proposes the creation of a lower Associate Court to take criminal and civil cases, to which the High Court can serve as a court of appeal, while serving the primary purpose of constitutional review.

  5. Our party is strongly against political involvement by High Court justices. We believe the justices of the Court should remain politically independent and refrain from making public comments about court cases or persons involved in them - justices' opinions should remain within their official channels on the Court RMB. In order to uphold judicial independence, we believe the justices themselves must remain independent.

  6. We propose reforming the High Court's official procedures to improve their efficiency and transparency. At present the Court works slowly and silently, we believe this should be changed and can be changed by reforming the Court's procedures.

  7. The Unity Party of Thaecia proposed the creation of a People's Attorney Office to serve as a guardian of the people against abuses by the government and will be able to provide legal representation to Thaecian residents in court.

  8. We believe the Justice Minister should be able to publicly advise Congress on the constitutionality of certain bills, and publicly advise the Prime Minister and the House of Commons on the competence and integrity of potential High Court nominees.



Internal Party Organisation

Party Constitution

  1. Membership
    Any citizen of Thaecia can become a member of our Political Party. All members together form without exclusion of any member the supreme authority in the Party. Membership can be limited or revoked by the governmental institutions of the party.

  2. Leadership Council
    The Unity Party of Thaecia shall be led by a Leadership Council, consisting of 5 members. 3 members will be elected by a free vote of every Unity Party member and the remaining 2 seats will be granted to the Unity Party's leaders in Congress. The Council will choose a Party Chairman from among its members. The number of members can be modified through a party vote, which can be triggered by a petition signed by 20% of party members or a motion approved by a majority of the leadership council. Elections for its members are to be held every 4 months and are to coincide with Thaecian general elections. Should a seat on the leadership council go vacant, an internal party election shall be held for the vacant seat.

  3. Party Chairman
    A Party Chairman shall be elected by the Leadership Council. The Chairman shall serve a term of 4 months, with the possibility of seeking re-election. The Chairman shall be the main representative of the party, the campaign manager during elections and shall have the ability to maintain the day-to-day workings of the party, however in general most important decisions require the consent of the leadership council. Internal party referendums and elections shall be organised by the Chairman, or by a person designated by the Chairman, except in the event that the Chairman is standing as a candidate, in which case they are required to appoint someone else who is not running in the election to organise it. In the event that there is no Chairman, the remaining members of the leadership council shall decide who will organise the elections.

  4. Shadow Cabinet
    The Unity Party shall choose one party member corresponding to each of the cabinet positions in the Thaecian government of the day. Any party member can run for each position, but they must gather 3 signatures from Thaecian citizens to be considered by the Leadership Council, which will ultimately decide from the valid candidates who will be admitted to the Shadow Cabinet. Their job in the Shadow Cabinet will be to follow the events of their ministry and keep pressure on the incumbent Minister, as well as to promote the Unity Party's solutions for the area. They may be removed by a vote of no confidence by party members, with 15% party members being required to sign and 60% of voters to support it, or by the Leadership Council with a simple majority.

  5. Disseminating Candidates
    In order to run candidates in elections, the party shall organise internal party primaries. Should the leadership council decide that the party shouldn't run any candidates in a specific election, this decision shall also be voted on by party members.

  6. Impeachment Procedures
    A vote to impeach a member of the leadership council may be called if a motion for impeachment receives the signatures of 20% of the membership. If a motion does obtain the signatures of 20% of the membership, support of at least 50% of voting members shall be required in an impeachment vote in order to impeach a council member. An impeachment vote can also be called by the Leadership Council if two-thirds of its members vote for it. The remaining members of the leadership council, not suffering the impeachment vote, shall decide who will organise the vote.

  7. Amending this Constitution
    Any changes to the Manifesto or Internal Party Constitution of the Unity Party of Thaecia must be approved by a majority of voting members at an internal party referendum.



Party Code of Conduct
  1. Members of the Unity Party of Thaecia are encouraged to avoid using toxic campaigning or accusations which lack facts or are generally illogical or have the primary purpose undermining other candidates/parties. We as a party put professionalism above electoral victory. We believe all criticisms must be made with a logical base.

  2. Any party members who are convicted of corruption by the Thaecian High Court will be removed from the party. Our party is absolutely against corruption, we see it as extremely harmful to the region's development and growth. Any members also facing trial for possible corruption will have their memberships temporarily suspended pending trial and permanently revoked if convicted.


Read factbook

The Unity Party and Thaecia have both changed a great deal since the PPT, TSP and FAlP merged back in July and I am confident in saying that the new manifesto reflects those changes while seeking to instigate further, much needed changes in Thaecia.

The Unity Party now stands strong on policies that set us apart from other parties in the region. We stand for unicameralism, we stand for judicial reform, and we stand for justice to be served to those affected by the TRP banjection. As Thaecia's strongest party, we will push hard get these things done and to change Thaecia for the better.

UNI is the future, join UNI today.

What does „we stand for justice to be served to those affected by the TRP banjection.“ mean exactly?

Because in my eyes they got what they deserved

Rhyssua wrote:If I must spell it out for you I'll do it via telegram. I'm not the biggest fan of the TPU; before Unity I always voted Pirate, and viewed the TPU (the dominant and largest party at the time) as a potential one-party state. Some of Andusre's actions are questionable, I'll even admit.

HOWEVER, implying that he's done nothing for the region since July is not only insulting to the entire region, but betrays your own ignorance. He's appointed every minister and Justice in the region, helped maintain regional security even without a defense force. Since I'm in school rn I'll give you a more detailed list in a few hours.

Saying he did nothing is an exaggeration which even I used, and it is my mistake that I used it. However whatever, literally whatever he did was showing either incompetence, inefficiency, lack of communication or corruption from his side, usually more of this are the same thing. TPU is still dreaming for its former glory and potential for mostly uncontested domination - just look how they claimed they were "stolen" the majority in the House and Senate when it was their own incompetence which caused Unity not to trust them for a coalition, yet they have the guts to claim the Congress was rigged through the formation of a very legitimate, popularily validated coalition.

No, investigation was made by us, the people of Thaecia, he means he will do this.

U r perfectly right! That's what I mean to say.

Even I was ok with a TPU-TPP coalition which is why I first accepted Titanne’s offer but their arrogance and poor thinking led me to think that Thaecia will not be safe in TPU’s hand.

Also anyone with opinions on Unity Party's manifesto and Constitution? I believe that outside one part (unicameralism), it is the best manifesto a Thaecian party ever had, and I am proud to say I had contributions to it. Thank you to Fishergate for being an excellent Chairman and to actually take my ideas into consideration unlike other Party Chairman who claimed that by expressing my views, I was trying to lead the TPU however I wanted, and he had to stop me. I am sure the Unity Party, with a now new manifesto, will provide our region with competent government and leadership for the future.

It means that the Unity Party will push for an investigation into exactly what happened and why, with the goal of ensuring that the law is followed truly. We don't wish to open up a can of worms, which is a risk I'm aware of, we just want to use the legal systems available to us now, that weren't available at the time, to determine whether or not the President's actions were right and just. If they are determined to not have been, then we will push to see the banjection reversed.

Welcome to Thaecia, Franciscan Monks! Glad to have you here

Me as well. Indian Genius has shown zero of the maturity or responsibility required to help run the region. I formally condemn his campaign, given that it’s my seat which he is running for.

I could spend time arguing with bitter and spiteful people with blatantly overt chips in their shoulders but I'd rather do maths homework.

You don‘t wish to open a can of worms? That‘s exactly what you‘re doing tho

To me it looks like you just want to have a reason to attack Andusre even more. Even though he‘s acting petty and immature imo it‘s not worth it to reintroduce Thaecia to the infestation called [redacted].

Unnecessary partisan if you ask me

Yes while I don’t like the way the ejections happened, you have to admit they did lighten the mood and now everyone’s moved on. Opening an investigation would devolve the region back into endless fights.

I'm pretty sure it's just us who call it 'math' actually :)

Titanne wrote:Yes while I don’t like the way the ejections happened, you have to admit they did lighten the mood and now everyone’s moved on. Opening an investigation would devolve the region back into endless fights.

Actually it is very doubtful for me that the TRP would even want to return to the region they got banjected from in a climate of toxicity and partisanship. The purpose of the investigation, which will not be the public spectacle the "competent" incumbent government made it to be, is to finally see if an overreach was done, even if we exclude the corruption and bad use of offices thing, and turn off the page from this event once and for all rather than just put it under silence.

Would You Rather:

Have Infinite Money or Infinite Food?

See, I agree with you, but the fact that the investigation is under fire means it has already come under the spotlight.

I nor the UNI manifesto said anything about Andusre. This has nothing to do with party politics or attacking particular individuals, it's about setting the record straight about what happened. I hope we will be able to hold a bipartisan investigation, through the proper channels, without anyone fighting or getting hurt over it.
