Confederation of Nations Regional Message Board

On The Empire of Il Corvonero amendment I will like to add the following:

6. The first election for Regional Judge will be 7 days after the enactment of this Constitution.
7. This Constitution shall take effect immediately its approval.

I think that the constitution has a strong foundation, but I have two questions and would like to propose some amendments as well.

My first question is that unless I missed it, it is unclear as to how members of the legislature are elected and how many members of the legislature there will be?

Amendment #1: The Judicial Branch shall consist of 3 judges, each nominated by the President and ratified with the consent of three-fifths (3/5) of the Legislative Assembly. The term length for each member shall be the length of the President's term. A judge may continue to serve another term in his or her position if 1) The President Elect ask him or her to continue for the duration of their presidential term or 2) no nation is willing or eligibly to serve as part of the Judicial Branch.

Amendment #2: Following the election of President, a transitional period of three (3) days shall be given in order for the President-Elect to receive endorsements, appoint Department Ministers and nominate Judges.

Amendment #3: The interim government shall continue in its position until new elections and the transitional period have concluded. These new elections should be held within ten (10) days of the ratification of this constitution.

One your question about the Legislative Branch, Every World Assembly Nation will be member of the Legislative Council. I believe everyone should have voice and vote on the matters of the government.

On your 1st amendment: I believe the more judges the better but due to the population we have we cant have many seats in the Court, that why in my proposal I made the seats due to population. One the first 49 WA Nations, 2 more when reach 50 WA nations and 2 more when reach 75 WA Nations making a total 5 judges. Maybe the number of WA nation we can lower it if you have a idea of what a reasonable. Also dont think the President should nominated judge, but be elected by its peers cause I am afraid the President can put in the Court his friends or nations that just gave them vote. Remember every WA Nation would have a vote in council so by having the President nominated the candidate that judge just have 2 votes in its favors even without debate. Also I believe the Judge position should longer than President term by giving 90 days and not 60 days as the President the Judge will technically can be in court under two presidencies. I believe the executive branch shouldnt touch the judicial branch. Also there shouldn't be term limits. Term Limits are hurtful cause you can limit the power of nation its job and can create a lame-duck situation.

On the Second Amendment: I like it!! But we can put that as a Law because in the law you can present the punishment (if any) by not endorsing the President/WAD, maybe you can present as the first bill when Legislative Council get establish :)

On the third amendment this is my opinion I like what The Empire of Il Corvonero cause it will permit the continuity of the interim government for at least one term after the one term the CON can decide to give a second term (if the interim government in this case decide to run for re-election. But again if the majority of the nations like your proposal we can make a change.

Ok, that makes sense that all WA nations make up the legislative assembly.

On the issue of judges I think one judge for up to 49 nations is too little. I think three judges until 100 nations and then after 100 nations increase the number of judges by 1 for every 50 new nations. Also I think it is important that a President be able to nominate to the legislative assembly but perhaps the President and the nominee's vote won't count. I think that should satisfy your concern on +2 votes.

I think the interim govt should continue, but I also think that it is important for the nations of this beautiful region to elect a government as soon as possible which is why Ithink the first elections should be held on August 27th, 2017

Hello and thanks for the invitation! I'm sorry i cannot join the Wa because this is a secondary nation. But i liked your recruitment telegram so i come! My time is not much, but i can help you in some degree, anyways is a pleasure to be here!

On the Judge issue I have little bit of a problem right now because with put three judges right now with only 5 World Assembly Nations currently residing will cause that the 60% of the region will be in the judicial branch when the judicial branch should be the less occupy and less subject to change branch of the government. Again not saying the should be one judge but I think the format proposal in the constitution will work. We can lower the number to ease your doubts. One Regional Judge with the first 25 WA Nations, 2 more Judges with the 35 WA Nations and 2 more with 50+WA Nations, so there will be one judge per every 10 WA Nations resident.

Dont think the President should nominate judges and have them vote in legislative council due to President is Ex-officio member of the Legislative Council meaning the president has all same rights as any WA Nation in the Council. I believe Judges should be win their post with the votes of their peers (WA Nations)

I dont think the region should have a strong republican format of government but a somewhat parliamentary system. I believe the main power should enmated from the Legislative Branch where one day (hopefully soon) be the biggest and the most representative branch in the region.

I support and agreed the arguments that The Republic of New Porto Rico has presented. I firmly believe NPR should continue as President as soon the Constitution is establish because the work has done to bring to region back to live admirable and should be recognize. But again is only for one term as soon as the first term ends a election should be done and if NPR decide to run well he need to win to continue.

About the judges, NPR point is right on when say judge should be voted not nominated and I believe the format of 1-2-2 that he presented is a strong viable one, but The Holy Empire of Handal Ands comment about 50 nations for one judge he is in the affirmative on this particular issue, I believe the number should be lower.

NPR, I see your argument there and am now in agreement with 1 judge until 50 nations are present. NPR and EoCII, I am still of the firm belief that the President (or Prime Minister if we are going for the Parliamentary System) should nominate the judge to be considered by the legislative assembly, and the legislative assembly would have the power to ask questions of the nominee before voting whether to accept OR reject the nominee. The nominee should not be able to vote for themselves and the President regardless of status should not vote. Having a nation run to be a judge compromises the nation to much, and may force or cause it to make promises to a variety of different nations in order to secure the majority needed to become a judge.

I propose the following amendment:

“The Court shall be the court of last resort in the Confederation of Nations and shall be composed of one (1) Regional Judge. Two (2) additional Regional Judges will be elected immediately once there are thirty (30) World Assembly Nations residing inside the Confederation. Two (2) new Regional Judges vacancy will be elected immediately after the Confederation has fifty (50) World Assembly Nations residing inside its borders.”…

I believe that this amendment will ease The Holy Empire of Handal Ands thought thus lowering the number WA Nations resident so we can add new Judges. By putting 1-2(30)-2(50) it will guarantee that for every 10 WA Nations we will have a judge. Also, the amendment only changes the numbers, whatever follow after “its borders” continues the same as publish by The Republic of New Porto Rico
