Government Officials III: Senators

Senators in AHSCA are elected to represent their individual states in the AHSCA Congress. Each state votes for up to two candidates to sit in the nation's legislative body and Senators can serve up to two consecutive terms. Roles of Majority and Minority leader are elected in a national campaign also for six-year terms. In certain instances, senators can be appointed without a vote, e.g in the event of sudden death or early retirement and can run when again when a national election is held and in other times, a special emergency election can be held. Each state is represented by two sitting Senators. The Congress is largely dominated by two major political parties, the United Island Party (UIP) and the National Liberal Party (NLP) though smaller third parties have sought and even gained representation in the Congress.

Role of the Majority Leader and Minority Leader

The role of the Majority/Minority leader are to call roll, set the agenda and caucus with their party on certain bills. AHSCA does not employ the use of party whips, rather this duty falls to the Majority and Minority leaders when desired. The Majority Leader is often the designated Speaker and has been since the inception of the UIS Congress at the birth of the nation, although it's not mandated by the Constitution and could theoretically be any elected official should the majority leader decline the role.
