Quorum Act


Senate Order 2020-1
An Act to make provision for the various quorums within the Region in times of relative inactivity.

WHEREAS in previous times due to inactivity within Our Region it has occurred that Parliament did not have enough candidates to fill the quorum for it to operate;

AND FURTHER WHEREAS these instances have posed challenging questions for the legitimacy of the said sessions of Parliament and the legislation therein made;

AND MOREOVER WHEREAS we are now in a similar situation, in which the Founder under Article III, Section B and subsection 1 of the Constitution, after deliberation with and approval from Libertarian Democracy, now President of Our Region and Member of Parliament, and other such Members of Parliament, have concluded and agreed that certain actions are to be taken in this matter and for connected purposes therewith;

CONSIDERING heretofore there were no provisions or conventions to satisfactorily end the questions arising from similar issues and problems;

BE IT ENACTED by Us, by and with the advice and consent of Our Parliament, and by the Authority of the same, as follows:—


Article 1
This present session of Parliament shall have lawful and legitimate authority as all previous Parliaments have had, by and under the Authority of the Founder under Article III, Section B and Subsection 1 of the Constitution, thereby bypassing the required quorum to act legitimately.

Article 2
-1. This Act comes into force immediately after it has been passed through the current session of Parliament and has been signed by the President.
-2. This Act has retroactive effect from the first day of the sitting of the present Parliamentary session.
-3. Article 4 of this Act comes into force on the first day following the dissolution or prorogation of the present Parliamentary session.
-4. This Act may be cited as “[The] Quorum Act”.

Article 3
-1. In the instance where there are insufficient candidates during or after an Parliamentary Election to fill enough Seats to meet the required quorum, the quorum shall not apply for that Parliamentary session.
-2. The previous provision of this Article does not apply in the instance where a Parliamentary seat has become vacant and there is to be called a by-election, because of which the quorum shall not be met for less than seventy-two hours, unless that Parliamentary session is dissolved or prorogued in less than five days from the moment that the by-election is held by the Founder.

Article 4
No single person may hold more than one Seat in a Parliamentary Session.

Article 5
In the instance where a question arises concerning the legitimacy of a Session of Parliament due to the number of seats filled by candidates, the Prime Minister, in his capacity as Speaker of Parliament, and in the absence of such a Prime Minister the President, may, in conjunction with the Founder, make further provisions that have force of law. In such instances, the Prime Minister or President and Founder must act in the interests of the Region as a whole, and not in the political interests of a section thereof.

GIVEN on the nineteenth day of February in the year 2020.
