Regional Tags Act

Article I: Introduction

In order to further define our Union and the spirit of our Constitution, we, the Parliament of the Union, move to codify which tags we would like to attach to our region as symbolic of our Union.

Article II: The Rights of the Founder

1)     As per Article III Section B Subsection 5 of the Constitution of the Union, “The Founder has the right to alter the Regional Flag and the WFE.”
2)     However, as per Article III Section B Subsection 1, the Founder “will obey the decisions of the Parliament and respect the actions of the other Executive Officials.”
3)     Therefore, we ask that the Founder respect our Act and update the list of regional tags according to this Act and the wishes of Parliament expressed within.

Article III: Tags

The following tags shall be henceforth, by the consent of the Founder, all and the only tags that may be listed on the World Factbook Entry (WFE), apart from the automatic tags that cannot be removed:

-          Democratic
-          Regional Government
-          Independent
-          Offsite Forums
-          World Assembly
-          National Sovereigntist
-          Neutral

Article IV: Conclusion

We, the Parliament of the Union, do hereby enact this document and its provisions as law.

Mister Speaker, I wish to abstain from voting on this matter, as I am truly neutral to it. However, if my vote is needed to receive a majority, then you may consider this vote to be in favour of the proposal.

Might I inquire the reason for this unprecedentedly high abstention rate? As no objections or ambivalences with the bill were raised during debate, I would be interested as Speaker, but also as author, to know if there is any particular problem that the rest of the Parliament sees with this bill.

Thomolia, I would request that you refrain from announcing the results of votes before their conclusion, more specifically before I myself close the vote. I understand your actions are well intentioned, but they only create confusion amongst senators who have not yet voted.
I thank you for your understanding.

Yeah I'm very sorry but you have to be quick to.close the voting. Otherwise you're responsible of the excessive length of time to make the law executive. I thank you for your understanding.

I do not understand any sort of hurry. On the contrary, because our region has members in many different time zones, I will not close the vote, unless it is an urgent one - which this is not - until every time zone has had an opportunity to vote up through the day of the deadline. I will not be responsible for denying nations the opportunity to vote within the timeline that I have set, unless events have shown that the decision must be announced and applied as soon as possible. I stand by my decision to continue this vote until it is reasonable to assume that all senators have had the opportunity to vote on the day of the deadline; the vote will end in a few hours.

Vote closed and the results are as follows:

Voting: 9
Majority: 5

In favor: 6
In opposition: 0
In abstention: 3

The bill has PASSED and is sent to the President for assent or veto.

Also, I would like to note that this is the first time, I believe, in the history of this Parliament, that all nine senators have voted. Congratulations!
