We hereby move to insert the following after Article IV and to re-label the Articles that come after to reflect the insertion:

"Article V. Undefined Procedures:

In situations where no Procedure is defined by this Document, the Constitution, or other Acts of Parliament, the Prime Minister, as Speaker of Parliament, shall have broad discretion to proceed in a matter in which they see fit, however they must act in accordance to the spirit of the Laws and the Constitution and is still subject to potential removal via a Motion of No Confidence by the Senators."
