Another question, can only citizens vote? Because it says they becomes members and then can vote, but then says they can vote if it had already commenced

I think there should be two legislative bodies, one for members and one for cabinet members.

Hi, I expected that there would be a lot of holes and errors after last night's revisions for something that is clearly WIP, so I have to reread it and think it through (current events have pounded on my mental health).

Hi, I've looked up the cabinet and in the UK and many European countries, a cabinet is not a standalone legislative body but more of a top-level portfolio for the government. Therefore to have a separate legislative body for the cabinet only would be a mere clone what has already been created and defined.

My intention for the bit about citizenship was the additional power to vote on bills, not on elections. I may have to merge Citizenship with the Membership of the Vouli to clarify on this. My health is still low at the moment.

Takeonme

To clarify on the above: all residents should be able to vote in elections and referendums, and citizens can vote on bills.

I have made a major update to the draft: nation=minoa/detail=factbook/id=642465

The State of Minoa wrote:To clarify on the above: all residents should be able to vote in elections and referendums, and citizens can vote on bills.

What is the difference between a referendum and bill? I think it should be a universal policy to wait until citizenship before being able to vote in anything. Because if anyone can vote in elections, tons of nations could join and vote to elect someone just to rig our elections. Also, the legislative process is confusing to me, we vote on something, the revise it into a bill, and vote on it again? It seems a little unneeded to have the entire region vote on something twice. Maybe vote it through the Senate but have it pass through another body after that.

In Part 4 (Citizenship), I think I should say that a nation that resides in Minoa for at least fourteen days may apply for citizenship, which allows them to take part in the Vouli and vote in elections - referendums refer to the constitution amendments, which take inspiration form the same sex marriage referendum in Ireland (2015).

In Part 5 (The Vouli), I think that the revised procedure is that when a member proposes a new law to the cabinet, and when a certain proportion of the cabinet approves the proposal, it gets debated by the whole Vouli. It is a bit like the WA, but there is more leeway because WA proposals cannot be amended after submission.

In Part 6 (Elections), referendums refer to constitutional amendments and motions of confidence against the Chancellor.

Alright, it just seems inefficient to have it pass through the Vouli twice. Maybe have the cabinet discuss it, the region discusses it, to form it, then it goes to a poll
