  1. If a position is vacated 21 days or more before the commencement of the general election, the following shall apply:

    1. For the Secretary or a seat in the General Assembly, a by-election shall be held to the elect the new member

    2. For a seat in the Supreme Court, a portfolio in the Cabinet that the Secretary wishes to replace, or a newly-created portfolio in the Cabinet, a confidence vote shall be held to approve or reject the new member nominated by the Secretary

    1. World Assembly citizens shall be permitted to vote in a two-day poll on whether to accept the nominated member

    2. Military Voting and dual citizens shall be permitted to vote on the Regional Message Board in the same period

Read dispatch

To further elaborate on the purpose of the amendment, having an election committee will also allow the citizens organising the election to watch over each other's action and prevent possible corruption. It will also bind the body organising by-elections to section 3 of the Electoral Conduct Act. It also wouldn't affect the speed and efficiency of a by-election since the Secretary is picking the citizens that are forming the election committee.
