SO 2016-16, Parliamentary Motions Act 2016

Post by Abdoa on Tue Oct 18, 2016 2:30 am

An Act to grant the privilege of using motions to Members of Parliament.

DESIRING that Parliament should have the opportunity to make use of motions;

KNOWING that Parliament has at current no such opportunities;

BE IT ENACTED by and with the advice and consent of Parliament, and by the authority of the same, as follows:-


Article 1
A Parliamentary motion (hereafter ‘motion’) shall be defined as follows: “a formal proposal by a Member of Parliament that requests another body of governance to take a certain action or requests that a certain action will not be taken, or requests that the authority expresses an opinion”.

Article 2
A motion must be written by a Member of Parliament. If in between the voting on the motion and the proposal of the motion the Member will lose his Seat in Parliament, the motion shall not be considered to be nulled and void. In such case the proposer may defend his motion until a vote has been taken.

Article 3
A motion may not be identical to another motion that has been introduces or that has been voted upon three weeks before its introduction. If it be so the Speaker of Parliament shall declare the motion nulled and void.

Article 4
The handling of a motion shall go as follows:

1) A Member of Parliament shall introduce the motion on the Debate Hall of Parliament;
2) The Speaker has the opportunity to declare the motion nulled and void;
3) At least one other Member of Parliament must second the motion;
4) A time lap of 48 hours shall be reserved in order to debate the motion;
5) The Speaker puts the motion to a vote;
6) The vote lasts for 48 hours and will be taken and preceded by the Speaker;
7) The Speaker announces the results of the vote and whether the motion has passed or not.

Article 5
If any Member of Parliament is or represents also the body  that the motion is taken on or to, he may not take part in the vote. The Speaker shall declare his vote nulled and void if he does vote nonetheless.

Article 6
A motion shall pass the vote when it receives a simple majority (50% +1) among the Members of Parliament that took part in the voting legitimately.

Article 7
When a motion passes the vote, it shall be forwarded to the [holder of the] position or body to which the motion was directed by the Speaker. Parliament may expect that passed motions will be carried out.

Article 8
Motions may not involve matters:

a. That are already being debated upon or voted on because of a Bill;
b. That would violate the law upon the moment that the motion is introduced;
c. That requests an organ or position holder to come forward with a Constitutional Amendment.

Nassau-Windsor's vote is counted as In Favour, taking into consideration his latest post in the Debate Hall, saying as much.

The bill has failed to meet the required threshold, and is dropped.
