Constitution: GA #27 to GA #30

General Assembly Resolution #27

Proposed by: Hiram Land
Status: In Effect

Esteemed UNOE Parliament Delegates,

The Prime Ministership in this Region is a powerful role in the Region. Without the Prime Ministership, the Founder role and select ministers would have the main role to lead the Region. Therefore we believe that the Prime Ministership should be regulated to keep the democracy in the UNoE active, fair and free.

ARTICLE I:

The Prime Ministership should have the ability to keep the already given powers stated by the Constitution. The Parliament has the right to impeach the Prime Ministership when they prove to break the powers given, or break any regional law. This article hereby requests that:

The Prime Ministership must take a oath of office, herein stated of "I, and my delegates, of the people of [nation], declare that we will honour and defend the Constitution of the United Nations of Earthlings, and that I am responsible for the actions when given the power. So help me God..

ARTICLE II:

The Prime Ministership must have open transparency in the acts that they do. Transparency leads to a open and fair Prime Ministership, and it leads to the same stuff in the Region. Along with this, Executive Orders are allowed to be issued, but they must be reviewed by Parliament and the High Justice. This article hereby states:

The Prime Ministership must give out any information requested, unless they are military secrets, or secrets that may damage the Region.

The information must not be given out to any other regions, unless they are allied with us. If they are not allied with us, they must be reviewed and requested why they need the information, and what they will do with the information.

Article II(b):

The Prime Ministership is allowed to pass Executive Orders, to take effect after it has been carefully reviewed.

The High Justice and Parliament must review the Executive Order requested carefully and thoroughly. If it breaks any constitutional law or regional law, it must be sent back for a rewrite.

Once it has been approved, Parliament must approve it by a simple majority. Any nation in Parliament is allowed to dispute the Executive Order in a civil lawsuit presided by the High Justice.

Executive Orders, once approved by Parliament, and without any lawsuits, will take effect the week after Parliament approves it.

Executive Orders are directives issued by the Prime Ministership that manages operations of the regional government and has the force of law. Therefore it should be treated as such.

Executive Orders will expire when either Parliament votes to make it expire, or when it has been 2.5 months.

ARTICLE III:

This law will take effect from when Parliament approves the law.

The current Prime Ministership will be affected from this law, when it is approved, from the 16th of February.

The UNoE Prime Ministership has allowed this law to pass into the Parliament, and is needed for the regulation of the Prime Ministership.

General Assembly Resolution #28

Proposed by: Hiram Land, Icetropical
Status: In Effect

Esteemed UNoE Parliament Delegations,

The world of NationStates is full of raiders and defenders. A raider, like Stattgang, can attack the UNoE. In several cases, Stattgang has done such. In one instance, Isle Hay removed Hiram Land as WA Delegate in an act of raiding. In all cases, we have to be on lockdown. We need to be safe against such, along with N and Z Days.

ARTICLE I - Military

This article defines what is needed in the combined Regional Military.

Article I(a) - Basic Definitions and Functions

The Regional Military shall be split into two, the Home Guard and the Earthlings Pact.

The Home Guard requests 15,000 troops from nations joining the Regional Military. The Home Guard is strictly for peacekeeping purposes, and will not be used to help one side win a war.

The Earthlings Pact is a pact of members where the pact defends the entire region against raiders, or to be used on N-Day and Z-Day.

The Home Guard will have a Navy and Army. It will not have an Air Force, however it will be allowed to have a Naval Air Command, only for operations of helicopters and transportation planes.

The "Service Medal" will then be the second highest medal awarded, for honour and service to the region. It will be awarded by the General of Defense Forces and the Commanders in Chief.

Then the "Most Promoted" will be awarded, for making the way to a high rank. It can be awarded by the HGC or EPC.

Then the combined medal systems of the member states will be awarded. Members are allowed to submit their own medals to be used regionally.

General Assembly Resolution #29

Proposed by: Argentinstan
Status: In Effect

Ladies and gentlemen of the Parliament of the United Nations of Earthlings.

As a region, we have had our share of longtime members, inactive members, members who have ceased to exist, and members that are no longer with us in our community.

But there is a significant amount of members who we can trust that are no longer with us.

In this piece of legislation, I hereby propose the following:

Allowing any member who was a citizen member of the UNOE at any point to be able to apply for dual citizenship, even if they do not reside currently in the region.

Stipulating that any application must be carefully reviewed without bias or prejudice by the Foreign Ministry and the Ministry or Defense & Security.

Once granted, that any dual citizen shall have the same rights and privileges as a UNOE resident citizen such as the ability to vote in UNOE elections and Parliament, participate in the RMB, and claim a regional map spot while limiting the rights and privileges to the ability to run for a government office or any abilities outside the scope of what gameplay is possible.

Once passed, effective immediately and directing the regional government to immediately set into action a plan that conforms to this piece of legislation.
