I would like to say a few words in this debate: the amendments arrived at that are here presented are the fruit of several months of debate on various topics, debate which implicated members from all across our community in a discussion around the direction our Union should take moving forward. I believe that there are still improvements to be made to our Constitution, as there always will be, but it is important that we are taking these steps forward.

With that, I third the motion to pass to a vote.

Also, for reference, I cite the three Committee reports on the amendment included in this bill:
Parliamentary Development Committee Report on SO#2015-11 and amendments: No Significant Effects:
This proposal would have no significant effects on regional activity and development. While it does narrow some of the provisions of the Constitution, it would in all likeliness not change the status quo. This proposal simply does not address topics that would impact the citizens' engagement.
Parliamentary Rules Committee Report on SO#2015-11 and amendments: Favorable Recommendation:
This amendment, along with the amendments thereto, would pose no significant problems to the Parliamentary Process.
Parliamentary Management Committee Report on SO#2015-11 and amendments: Reported Favorably:
It is the view of the Committee that this Amendment will greatly aid in the organization and functionality of Our Government. Reducing some of the ambiguity in our Constitution can greatly clarify the jurisdictions and prerogatives of of Government Members.

I too would like to acknowledge the hard work of the ECC and the wide consensus over this proposal. I also second the Motion.

The Motion to Pass to a Vote tabled by Senator Saint Artica and the Nordic Kingdoms has gained the requisite support and is thus sustained. Please go vote!
