Amendment I, Abdoa:
 
To number the first and second paragraphs of Article II of the bill Sections A and B respectively, and to append the following language to the bill as Section C of Article II:
“The following text shall be added SO#2016-18 as Article III, Guidelines 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, and 19:
10) When one or more seats fall open through the resignation or removal from office of an incumbent within two days from one another, a by-election shall be called by the Founder for the number of seats that have fallen open within those two days after they have passed, and the nominations will last three days; anyone may declare their intention to form an electoral list, alone or with specified others.
11) If there are more than one seats to be filled in the by-election, the Founder will follow Article III, Guidelines 2), 3), 12) and 13) of this Act in that order.
12) The Founder will then enter the Number of Seats as the number of seats that are to be filled in the election, set the Percent Hurdle to “0”, and put the number of votes for the electoral list with the most votes in the Party 1 section, the number of votes for the electoral list with the next most votes in the Party 2 section, et cetera, before clicking on calculate.
13) Thereafter, the Founder will follow Article III, Guidelines 5), 6), 7), 8 ) and 9) of this Act, unless there are only two single candidates running, in which case he will not follow Article III, Guideline 7 of this Act, and if the election finishes in a draw between the two candidates, then the seats are awarded to the nation with longest permanent residency.
14) If there is only one seat to be filled in the by-election, the Founder will follow Article III, Guidelines 15), 16), 17), 18), and 19) of this Act in that order.
15) After the candidatures are closed, the first round of voting will begin. The Founder will post a three-day poll on the regional page with the name of each candidate and their (optional) political affiliations.
16) If, in the first round of voting, a candidate secures a majority (half plus one) of the votes cast, they are elected to the vacant seat.
17) If, in the first round of voting, no candidate secures a majority (half plus one) of the votes cast, then a second round of voting will be held. The Founder will post another three-day poll on the regional page with the name of the two candidates with the first and second highest number of votes in the first round and their (optional) political affiliations.
18) The candidate with the most votes in this second round is elected to the vacant seat.
19) If at any point in this process there is a relevant tie of votes, the candidate with the longest permanent residency in the region is favored.”

This is an informal vote, so as soon as the notes the presence of a majority either way (adoption or rejection of the amendment), the Chair will close the vote and proceed to the the vote on the bill itself, whether amended or not.
