SO#2017-91
Motion to Impeach the President

Article I: Introduction
Under the powers vested in this body by Article II, Section G of the Constitution, and for the reasons enumerated herein, we, the Parliament of the Union, do hereby move to order the Speaker of Parliament begin proceedings to impeach The Right Honourable President Nassau-Windsor, MP LSM from the office of the President of the Union.

Article II: Justification
We do hereby recognize the following items as the justifications of this Motion:

1. The President has failed to display an acceptable level of activity in striking contrast to the precedent set by the resignation of the former holder of the office thereof, The Honourable Lhistonia, MP.  We do note that as of 20 December 2017 the incumbent has not logged in to their NationStates account in eleven days and has not logged in to their forums account in twenty-six days.
2. The President has failed to put forth any significant effort to execute an essential Act of Parliament lawfully passed by Parliament and subsequently given assent by the previous President on 30 October 2017, SO#2017-76 ("New Recruitment Initiative Act"), in their thirty-one days in office.

We additionally note that this bill is proposed during a State of Emergency enacted by SO#2017-90.

Article III: Procedure
1. Immediately following the passage of this Motion, the Speaker of Parliament shall open a thread in the Citizens' Forum and at least five (5) but no more than seven (7) days shall be allotted for public comments on potential impeachment of the sitting President.
2. Immediately following the conclusion of the public comment period, the Speaker of Parliament shall hold a formal Vote of Impeachment among the Senators against the sitting President, and shall last for five (5) days.
3. If the Vote of Impeachment achieves five or more votes in favor, The Honourable President Nassau-Windsor, MP LSM shall be considered impeached from the office of the President of the Union and shall immediately be stripped of all powers, duties, privileges, and titles associated with that position, and a Special Election shall be called to fill the vacancy under the following special procedure which shall supersede all other procedures in this case only:
A: the Speaker of Parliament shall publicly announce on the RMB that a Special Election will be held.  From that moment, there will be seventy-two (72) hours for members to publicly announce their candidacy on the RMB.
B: if there is only one valid candidacy by the end of the announcement period, that candidate shall automatically become the President and no election shall be held.
C: if there are multiple candidates, normal procedures shall apply.

Article IV: Conclusion
We, the Parliament of the Union, do hereby enact the above provisions as a Motion under SO#2017-26 ("Parliamentary Motions Act").

20 December 2017
The Right Honourable Minister of Jurisprudence Libertarian Democracy, RO MP LSM GSM
The Right Honourable Leader of Parliament Aboda, MP LSM GSM




It is with great sadness that I table this Motion to impeach my friend Nassau-Windsor.  It is unfortunate that his inactivity prevents our government from functioning.  We, however, are in a State of Emergency and therefore must take whatever actions necessary and proper to ensure the survival of the Union.  We are losing members every day, and we cannot have an inactive President stand in the way of Recruitment Reform in this crucial time.  We cannot afford to wait until the elections at the end of January.  Our region may be too far gone by then.  We need to act now.  If we work quickly to pass this motion, we could potentially have a new president in two weeks' time.

Note: this proposal has two authors and therefore it will immediately pass to debate.
