Everyone, I cannot emphasize enough how crucial it is that you participate in the ECC process. This is simply the largest change we have had in Union history. We are essentially rewriting our Constitution. This is no simple matter. I encourage everyone to please telegram Nassau with your candidacy so we can continue bringing progress to this great region!

So, lads, what had happened for these past month?? :)

Aralunya, Abdoa, and Libertarian Democracy

Sorry for my low activity this days, but I'm on a 6-days holiday in Milan.

We have a new Parliament, and we're holding elections for the delegates to our first Extraordinary Constitutional Convention (ECC)!

Abdoa

Attention All Senators:
We need one more person to nominate themselves for ECC Delegate. This is an important role with great responsibility, but nevertheless it is a necessary position and we need someone to step up.

I may be inactive for a while everyone. I have Hurricane Irma right at my doorstep.

Thank you very much!

I have to ask: Is this ECC going to be like the Convention to Amend The Articles of Confederation where the Delegates just drafted an entirely new Constitution?

Aralunya wrote:I have to ask: Is this ECC going to be like the Convention to Amend The Articles of Confederation where the Delegates just drafted an entirely new Constitution?

It might be, but it might not, for several reasons. First, the Articles of Confederation was essentially a treaty between thirteen separate nations to form a weak EU-style alliance. The states were quickly growing apart culturally, and the states each had different policies for everything, even currency. They fixed that with a Constitution.

Now, what we have here is a Constitution that works almost perfectly. I would expect the majority of proposals to add to the Constitution, not drastically changing existing policy. But I may be wrong, and it really is in the hands of the Delegates.

ECC is live!

PHASE I is official starting! The deadline for submitting proposals is September 13th.

I apologize for not being so active lately. I've been following the development of the region. However, I have not been interacting due to the flu and trying to keep up with schoolwork.

The flu sucks, man. Get well soon!

ECC Delegates: Today is the final day to submit an Amendment!

Hashkin

But it has to be a well-written document or it can just be a proposal?

Abdoa and Thomolia

Where do I submit it?

Lhistonia wrote:But it has to be a well-written document or it can just be a proposal?

It can be either, but its easier to debate if its already well developed.

When is everibody coming back...
I miss you guys...

As Abdoa said, a complete document is preferred. However, if it's a work in progress, that's ok, as long you can finish it soon. However, for just an idea, I don't think that will work, since the Delegates won't really have much to debate.

Abdoa

Just checked, what you posted was perfectly fine. At a certain point during debate, you'll just have to do some formatting stuff (ie writing "we do hereby amend Article Blah section Meh to read as follows" and all that fun stuff), but you have some time.

Abdoa, Lhistonia, and Hashkin

Also, Senators, just because there's an ECC doesn't mean that you are on leave. Do your jobs! There are a bunch of bills that need to be debated and voted on.

Abdoa and Hashkin

Also, ECC Delegates, debate has begun! This process will move very quickly, so being steadfast, reliable, and active is absolutely essential. At minimum, Delegates really need to be checking the thread once or twice a day.
