SO 2017-4 Creation of a Minister Without Portfolio Act

Post by Abdoa on Fri Jan 13, 2017 3:03 am

SO 2017-4

Creation of a Minister Without Portfolio Act

REALIZING that there are duties in the government that do not fall neatly in the domains of any of the existing ministerial portfolios, and
UNDERSTANDING that Ministers may not always have enough time to deal with all their duties,
we, the Parliament of the Union, do hereby
ORDER that the position of Minister Without Portfolio be created in the Cabinet, as per Article II, Section J of the Constitution, allowing for the Prime Minister to delegate extra work to that individual, who may also be directed to aid other Ministers in their duties. The Minister Without Portfolio will also assume the duties of any vacant Cabinet post until a new appointment can be made.

I support this act, and propose that the Minister be called "Deputy Prime Minister".

Um, interesting idea, LibDem, but I would have thought that should we have a DPM, it would be a position with functions more similar to a replacement PM. Here, I intended the post to be more of a backup ministerial post.

You could talk me into it though.

I support this Bill. However, it would have to be a Constitutional Amendment as Article II, Section J says that Parliament can create new Cabinet positions, and not the Prime Minister himself.

To elaborate on what Abdoa said, this is Parliament creating a cabinet Minister to aid the Prime Minister.

@Abdoa A replacement PM is not exactly what I'm trying to convey. This bill portrays the Minister as a kind of assistant for the Prime Minister, doing odd jobs that don't fall under the other Ministers or occasionally taking their place. It seems to me that this Ministry should be less of a Ministry and more like the Prime Minister's staff.

Um, I see your point. DPM, to me at least, does however convey a more powerful message, but then again it may be just me.
