SO 2017-42
Continuity Act

WHEREAS once this Parliament is dissolved, no further laws can be passed until a new Parliament is constituted following such elections as have not taken place;
BE IT ORDERED by the President of the Union, with the advice and consent of the Senators of the Union here assembled in Parliament, as follows;-

Article 1
If by two days following the prescribed constitutional date, the Founder has not called elections that should be held on such date, the Founder's powers as described in Article IV Section 3 of the Constitution of the Union are automatically delegated to Cabinet, which within two (2) days will appoint by unanimous vote a Temporary Elections Official from within the Cabinet to exercise such powers.

Article 2
All Bills of Parliament which have been to the President for assent or veto will become law by default at the dissolution of the Parliament which passed them if the President has not given his assent or veto to them by such time, and the provisions of this Article apply retroactively and to this Act also.

Article 3
This Act may be cited as "[The] Continuity Act 2017".

Aralunya wrote:I think having a collective body, with members that could be absent, elect a Temporary Election Official could also gum up and slow down an already delayed electoral process. I believe it would be best to designate an individual position to run the elections in the place of the Founder.

As regards the comments of my honorable friend Aralunya on the Drafting Table, I would like to clarify that the contents of this bill are not supposed to be the ultimate solution for the problem it addresses - it's intent is to provide a working solution for the particular instance of the problem that we currently face, where this Parliament will be dissolved with none elected to take its place. This bill's provisions are intended to work optimally for the current situation, and as no quorum is required for the Cabinet's vote to be valid, so long as all Cabinet members have been notified of the meeting and given ample time to attend their opinion, the ones present only need agree to a member to hold the elections and we're back in business. I think that once a new Parliament is convened, this Act should be repealed and replaced by a law that is more universal in its usefulness.

With that, I move to pass to a vote.
