International Democratic Union Regional Message Board
Wasn't it almost time for the next election, anyway? If so, then I suggest that -- unless either Xiomera or Grosseschnauzer objects -- we leave any major attempt at re-balancing endorsements until after the vote.
Does anybody second this?
EDIT: I suppose that Democratic Republic of Eiria, as the Vice-Delegate and thus as the person who would normally take over if something went wrong with Xiomera's tenure of office, would also have a reasonable right to object to this.
Trive 38, keep in mind that the current Vice Delegate only has five endorsements. As Bears Armed Missionhas noted the region is due for elections any day now, and perhaps your attention should be focused on that. You’re doing the sort of thing that just muddies the situation. And I’ve checked, our elected delegate lost two endorsements in the past week due to CTE nations. Did you even bother to read my TG to every member of the elected government? You certainly didn’t bother to respond.
WA Delegate Schedule II nominations are open.
All IDUSA members are eligible for nomination.
Grosseschnauzer, I'd appreciate it if any objections you have towards my response be taken to telegrams. Discussing concerns on the Regional Board is not going to help.
We have voted against the GA proposal 'End Conversion Therapy' because of apparent internal inconsistency between clauses that seem to rely on everybody interpreting certain terms in the same way that the authoring nation -- which did not adequately explain them in the text -- does. Also, we do not regard this as justifiably an 'international' issue.
Fair point on the faults in the text, but you don't think persecution of LGBT+ people isn't an international issue?
Given the faults in the text, the fact that the active clauses -- rather than just the preamble -- are about "persecution of LBGT+ people" is not automatically obvious: Activists in the relevant field might know what the author means by some of their terminology, but I am not such an activist, and to me those clauses could as easily be about the right of people in "LBGT+"-dominated nations (of which NS, unlike RL, does have some...) to become non-"LBGT+" instead...
And isn't existing GA legislation really enough to bar [legal] persecution, anyway?
