I resigned before that post. I canít undo the past. I still think that this sets an unnecessary precedent and defeats the purpose of parliament. I mean this in a respectful manner but the government has outright disgraced the honour of parliament.

Parliament has disgraced the honor of parliament. Its inactivity in policymaking despite its crucial role in it has become infamous. You have broken parliament and parliament is breaking the region.

Well I agree with Meadrin on this.

Go and tell Meadrin, NR, Boris Cult, etc. that they voted "For" rather than "Against" without putting much thought into their votes because they are incompetent. Go and tell them that it wasn't because the rest of the jury had already voted For, and that "what they say won't matter anyways", and that it's simply human nature to go with what the majority voice says. Go and tell them that because of the bloated system, that prefers so many Justices instead of just three, that allows so much people that aren't made to interpret OOC law because the community is predominantly RPers, that they were really just bad judges and that if they were better, the jury system would've worked.

I wasn't ever a justice on the regional court so I didn't ever vote for anything, incompetent or not. LOL

I actively try to promote politics when I have available time. At the closing times of the term, I did not.
You can lead a horse to water, but you canít make it drink.

Yes, please blame it on me. Because itís my fault, isnít it? I was speaker for 2 months. Iíve voted when necessary. Iíve done my duty. Itís not my fault.

I can't literally make the horse drink the water, but if it doesn't drink it would be too exhausted to work and harm both itself and me, so I would let that horse go. That's similar to what we're doing here with parliament.

Read dispatch

Once you have sufficiently read the provided materials, please access the StrawPoll link at the bottom of this telegram. Please note that the poll will require the name of your NationStates account (e.g. Untecna, Orange Creek, Kingdom of Englands, etc...) in order for your votes to be validated. In addition, you will only be considered a valid voter if you are either a resident of the IOC, or a resident of an embassy region who is sufficiently active in the IOC to be accorded the right to vote for legislation. The assessment of the above criteria will be done by the regional officers in lieu of a formal citizenship system, which this region is yet to implement.

StrawPoll link: https://strawpoll.com/polls/NPgxk1Awen2

This referendum will close voting at exactly 11:59 PM on Friday, 18 March 2022, after which the results will be immediately implemented by the regional government.
