I would like to propose the following constitutional amendment:

Constitutional Amendment

Author: Scalizagasti
September 11 2019


Purpose

This bill seeks expand the scope that proposed bills can take. There are a few ambiguities within the field system that need to be resolved, and there are also certain actions that should be legal to take yet are not included in the Constitution.


Proposed Law

  1. This bill acts upon Field M3 of the Constitution to change the Constitution in a way that includes more actions that bills can mandate.

  2. Field X2 is reclassified to C3 to accurately reflect the communicative nature of recruitment telegrams. Field X2 will instead deal with the actions that an Officer position can take outside the scope of NationStates permissions.

    1. The new Fields C3 and X2 will both have a pass ratio of 1/1.

  3. Field M4 is created to call an early election, whose date must be no closer than 48 hours in advance.

    1. Field M4 has a pass ratio of 2/1.

  4. Field M5 is created to clarify an ambiguous function of regional administrative procedure.

    1. Field M5 has a pass ratio of 1/1.

  5. Field M6 is created to create an official government institution.

    1. Field M6 has a pass ratio of 2/1.

  6. Effectively, Section 1 of the Constitution would be amended to include the following:

The first version of this amendment failed 2-1 on 2019-09-05

It will be sent to a vote after the current poll is finished.

VOTING METHODOLOGY
The first choice votes of all voters are counted, and the candidate with the least number of votes is eliminated. Those who voted for the losing candidate have their votes shifted to their next choice, and the process repeats until three candidates are left. Ties are broken by determining which candidate is preferred less. Unbreakable ties are resolved randomly.

FIRST ROUND

Bvakkstyi 1
ImperialRepublic 1
La Montevideo 0 - ELIMINATED
Pekares 1
Scalizagasti 3

SECOND ROUND

Bvakkstyi 1 - TIED FOR ELIMINATION
ImperialRepublic 1 - TIED FOR ELIMINATION
Pekares 1 - TIED FOR ELIMINATION
Scalizagasti 3

TIEBREAKER - Count the second choice votes of those who voted for Scalizagasti

Bvakkstyi 1 - TIED FOR ELIMINATION
ImperialRepublic 1 - TIED FOR ELIMINATION
Pekares 4

SECOND TIEBREAKER - Count second or third choice votes of those who voted for Scalizagasti and/or Pekares

Bvakkstyi 3
ImperialRepublic 3

Per law, all final ties are broken randomly. I will generate a random number between 0 and 1. If the number is greater than 0.5, I will elect Bvakkstyi. If less, ImperialRepublic.

I have generated 0.11895751069169835. ImperialRepublic wins the tiebreaker.

ImperialRepublic, Pekares, and Scalizagasti are our next administrators.

OOOOOOF

Acting on Field X2 of the Constitution, this Region changes its recruitment telegram to the below text authored by Scalizagasti:

Greetings, %NATION%!

We know you're receiving a lot of recruitment telegrams so we'll keep this one brief. The Great Experiment, or TGE for short, is an active community for roleplay and regional politics. This is a mid-size region of around 70 people, meaning that it is very easy to get involved and make a difference, while not being so small that actions seem irrelevant. If you join, you will join a community of inclusiveness where newer members are welcomed and their contributions not ignored. From regional elections to sports tournaments, TGE has a lot to offer.

For this reason, we hope you will join our great region.

I propose this bill for vote.

Like My New Flag?

Oof
