SO 2017-54 Amendments to SO#2017-26 ("Parliamentary Motions Act 2017")

Post by Abdoa on Sat Jul 15, 2017 9:39 pm

Senate of the Parliamentary Union
SO 2017-54
Amendments to SO#2017-26 ("Parliamentary Motions Act 2017")

We, the Parliament of the Union, move to amend various clauses of SO#2017-26 ("Parliamentary Motions Act 2017") as follows:

Article 1
Article 6 of SO#2017-26 ("Parliamentary Motions Act 2017") is amended to read as follows:
"If any Member of Parliament is or represents also the body that the motion is taken on or to, he may not take part in the vote. The Speaker shall declare his vote nulled and void if he does vote nonetheless. However, such a Member of Parliament may vote if the removing him from the roll for that vote would lower the number of Members of Parliament eligible to vote less than four."

Article 2
Point c of Article 10 of SO#2017-26 ("Parliamentary Motions Act 2017") is stricken and removed from that Act.

Article 3
Article 15 of SO#2017-26 ("Parliamentary Motions Act 2017") is amended to read as follows:
"Article 9 of this Act is excepted in the case of Motions of Confidence and No Confidence, which are only binding in cases stated elsewhere in this Act, and if a Motion requests an organ or position holder to come forward with a Constitutional Amendment, in which case the Motion is not binding under any circumstances."

July 15, 2017
The Rt. Hon. Prime Minister Abdoa, MP LSM GSM

This is to correct some idiosyncrasies in the current law.

The proposed amendment to Article 15 does not reconcile that the Act in question makes a distinction between Motions of Confidence and Motions of No Confidence. The proposed amendment needs to reflect that distinction.

It does? Here, we're talking about exceptions to the previously stated provisions in the Act, and there is clearly a difference between a Motion of Confidence and a Motion that requests another body to propose constitutional amendments in the proposed Article 15.

What I meant (and I definitely worded that horribly) is that you say "Motions of Confidence, which are only binding in cases stated elsewhere in this Act".  I assume* here you are referring to the exception in Article 13 of the original Act which states:
Motions of No Confidence are only binding only when passed against the Prime Minister or the Speaker pro tempore of Parliament.
However, that clause is regarding Motions of No Confidence.  In your proposed amendment, I believe that you mistakenly group together Motions of Confidence and Motions of No Confidence, which are two clear and distinct ideas within the Act.

*If my assumption is wrong, then I don't know why you would include that clause, because no where else within the Act is there an applicable exception.

Well, thanks a lot for catching that: corrected to Motions of Confidence and No Confidence.
