I renumber them when they enter the debate hall because it makes more sense to have them coming out more or less in order. It's also easier for me. However, if the Parliament passes a law clarifying its procedure, I'll be happy to oblige. ..hint...hint. Wink

What kind of advantage? Like using multiple puppets to get the multiple senate seats? Or banning Parliament from passing any laws that could in the most crazy interpretation be viewed as restricting rights?

Zodiacs suggests altering the mentioned clause as follows:

Section D: Add “Article I, Section D, Subsection 2”

We move to add the following to the Constitution as Article I, Section D, Subsection 2:
“No member may create a puppet nation so they can have two concurrent Government or Senator positions in the Union.  Upon first offense, the member/s
1. (including the master nation and puppet nations)
2. will immediately lose their Government position(subject to decision of PM or founder in case PM himself is the accused)

and will be permanently barred from being elected or appointed to Government or Parliamentary positions, and upon the second offense, shall be permanently banned from the Union.”

PURPOSE OF REPHRASING BEING :

  1. Adding Specific mention of puppet nations as well


  1. Prevent damage from the culprit nation before his term in government ended

We probably should do that if we want to keep with the spirit of reducing ambiguity, lol.

How does this sound:
We move to add the following to the Constitution as Article I, Section D, Subsection 2:
“No member may create a puppet nation so they can have two concurrent Government or Senator positions in the Union. Upon first offense, the member, and all puppets thereof, will lose their government position if already a member of the government or Parliament, and be permanently barred from being elected or appointed to Government or Parliamentary positions. Upon the second offense, the member and all residing puppets thereof shall be permanently banned from the Union.”

I will start the voting on the amendments as soon as possible after you have decided which amendment to propose.

Seen as no one has responded, I have arbitrarily decided, through my powers as chair of Parliament, that the latter will vote on the amendment proposed by Libertarian Democracy.
