Post by Sepharich on Tue Mar 21, 2017 5:51 pm

SO 2017-16
Speaker Pro Tempore of Parliament Act



I - Introduction

Authorizing the Prime Minister to relieve himself of his parliamentary duties from time to time, allowing him such liberty as to attend to his governmental duties in fuller capacity, we, the Parliament of the Union, do hereby create the office of Speaker pro tempore of Parliament.

II - Definitions

The "parliamentary duties" of the Prime Minister are defined as in Article III Section D Subsection 3 of the Constitution of the Union and in all laws associated with that clause.

III - Status and Duties

a - The Office of Speaker pro tempore of Parliament is hereby to be established following the enactment of this Act.
b - The Prime Minister may at any moment and for any duration of time choose to delegate his parliamentary duties to the Speaker pro tempore of Parliament.
c - By extension, the Prime Minister may at any moment revoke such a delegation of his powers.
d - However, if the Prime Minister is inactive on the forum for more than a week, the Speaker pro tempore of Parliament automatically receives the delegation of duties as per Article III Clause a of this Act, assuring the continuance of parliamentary proceedings.
e - Under no circumstances may any non-parliamentary duties be conferred on the Speaker pro tempore of Parliament.

IV - Election

a - At the opening of each Parliament, a vote is held amongst the senators to determine, by exhaustive ballot, the Speaker pro tempore of Parliament until the dissolution of that Parliament.
b - At any moment, a Senator may table a Motion of No Confidence in the Speaker pro tempore of Parliament which, having made its may through Parliament pursuant to the provisions enumerated in SO#2016-3 ("Parliamentary Procedure Orders"), Article II, dealing with ordinary Bills of Parliament, if passed, will force the immediate resignation of the incumbent Speaker pro tempore of Parliament, whereupon  the provision of Article IV Clause a of the Act must be re-executed.

V - Conclusion

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

I believe that you should add another clause which states that in any case of the Speaker pro tempore is also inactive , a new PM shall be selected with immediate effect.

I think that that is unnecessary, because Parliament can get rid of the PM through a motion of no confidence anyways. It might be a good idea though to write a bill on how those work, because I do think Malaya raises the point of if both PM and Spt are inactive, how do we pass motions? Anyone else have any ideas?

Perhaps the longest serving Senator could have the power after the PM and Spt. Then it continues down the line if there continues to be inactivity.

Yes, good idea I guess. I think though that the simplest solution is to write another bill which says that if the PM or Spt are both inactive for a week say, a motion of no confidence in either of those officials may be tabled and voted on directly by any member in the Voting Chamber. If the PM is dismissed, then the WA members automatically elect a new one, and if the Spt is dismissed, then a new election can be held in Parliament by the Founder.

But I think this issue is too large to put in this bill; I'm drafting a new one for that purpose expressly.

I believe that to be prudent.

May I remind my Honourable friend that I already wrote a Bill concerning Parliamentary motions (SO 2016-16), although that my proposal did not pass Parliament because there was a lack of quorum? You may wish to use my initial Bill as a guide...

I think I will, thank you, if you don't mind me putting more stuff around it. But I think the debate seems to be finished, and the time limo is far past. Sepharich, please copy the original post of this bill into the Voting Chamber, and give us four days to vote!
