    Glad you are back. You should take a vacation to my lovely planet and soak up the relaxing rays. That should help you recover quickly.

    Do you think it is my fault everyone is missing? I am wondering if they all went to check out my planet. I will check with my contacts to see if they are there.

    Proposal for Constitution Revision and Discussion Committee to carry through the month long hiatus of the Galactic Republic Senate


    Proposal for Constitution Revision and Discussion Committee to carry through the month long hiatus of the Galactic Republic Senate

    Senators, we come to a close our current Senate sessions. Over the next two weeks the hopeful resolution of our Republic-wide problems will be seen. Of course, with the commonly held holiday season, I expect the posting to be less active as it was of late. So, I will be bringing things along a might bit faster than I wanted.

    With this month falling back to its end, the Supreme Chancellor would like to further an idea that he posted during his time as Vice Chancellor in the last term. The Constitution has been a fine guide for us these past few months. Through our passage through time under it, we've come to understand that some things need clarifying and that some things need overall revisions. I've talked with the Senator from Ord Mantel, LemmingLord, briefly of this committee. He was the initial drafter of the Constituion and I would like to see him care for the revisions and clarification for somehting that he put a lot of work into.

    Would the Senator of Ord Mantel agree to head up the committee? Would Senators like to volunteer for the committee? Of course, as our proceedings take a month long hiatus, per the Constitution, at the end of this month, this committee will be working to revise the constitution and have it prepared for the next installment in Febuary. This committee, under the leader of the committee, will work independantly for the month. On the institution of the next installment, the committee leader will present the proposition for the new constitution, fit with changes, per the Constitution. After approval by the Senate in a majority, two-thirds vote, this will be presented to Strilo for immediate approval so as to affect the Senate's first month back.

    As we embark upon the rest of this month's game, let me as Supreme Chancellor, state how happy I have been with these proceedings. These has been some fine discussion and deliberation over the past month. In the past two months as well, we've seen unprecedented growth in our Senate numbers. Bravo! Perhaps over the next week and into the next session, we will see not only more growth, but more quality playing.

    Copy of holocommunication from the RIA Office

    The blue holoprojector blinked to life, presenting a large presentation. First showing was the circular symbol of the Republic Intelligence Agency followed by the face ofthe known face of Tookna Bahari, the RIA Agent. He looked slightly dishevled as he nodded to the Senate body as a whole.

    "Greetings, Sentors. I've got some good news and some bad news. Good news is that we've been able to use the power you've given to us to break-up parts of the Thranta Thugs from the inside, most with a peaceful solution. Many of the planets that were plagued by growing thug movement are counting less and less active cells. To tell you the truth, some of the thugs are even helping us out with information and subversion. Here in, though, lies the bad news."

    The large face sighed as it looked at a point off-camera.

    "This relative quiet has us worried. Though the RIA has done a lot work, the majority of the planets with the gang cells have jointed quieted down. The attacks on government officials have ceased to occur, as have appearance of thier rallies and crime. It's eerie, Senators. We have confirmed by a number of contacts th

    OOC:These posts take a long time to put together you know! An hour at least when one actually does it right. I'd welcome some relaxation, though this really, really has been a lot of fun so far. [face_batting]

    I believe I would, Supreme Chancellor, with the senate's blessing of course, accept the comission. Could I have your help in determining our deadlines?

    If we want to have the next session revisions compiled and voted on before the end of this one, we will have to work fast and will need to deal with the fewer postings that come with the holiday season.

    If we want to have the next session revisions compiled during our January hiatous, we would have more time, but our first order of business in February would need to be to vote on the revision.

    Supreme Chancellor, may I ask for your preference and for the preferences of the senate?

    1) Revise and vote for the adoption of the revised constitution before December 31st.
    2) Revise the constitution in January; vote for its adoption when the next session begins (probably February).
    3) Other?

    Very good! The chair does hereby appoint Senator LemmingLord of the planet Ord Mantel to work on the Constitutional Committee. You may choose to work with as many Senators as you see fit and work out your revisions as you see fit. I would encourage Senators to PM Senator LemmingLord with issues that they have had with the Constitution.

    I do think that, if suitable with Senator LemmingLord, that the deadline be set for the next opening of the Galactic Republic Senate sessions. Strilo has said it will likely be reappearing at time. Do you think six weeks is enough time for you and your committee to work things?

    Something that will also need to be addressed is the next session elections. Will it be the current administration continueing into the next month for the first four days?

    Congratulations for the Senator and best wishes to both him and his fellow committee members. May the work move swiftly and enjoyably.

    The honorable senator from Ord Mandel can count on me for ideas and any assistance needed in drafting the revisions.

    OOC Thank you Kalio for your efforts they have been fun to read and to be involved.

    Yes, six weeks should be plenty.

    I call for an amendment to the current constitution to address the issue of an interim government to handle the democratic ratification or rejection of the new constitution.

    Rule 9. The session 1 senate and Supreme Chancellor authorizes the Constitution Revision Committee to prepare a new constitution for session 2. The senate list at the end of session 1 will be the starting senate list for session 2. New senators can add themselves as described in this constitution. Session 2 will begin when Strilo or another moderator indicates it does.

    A special interim government will preside over the first four three days of the new session for the new constitution ratification or rejection by the senate. The special interim government will be led by Kalio Dynkos, or in his absence, Warrior of Mandalore, or in his absence, someone of Strilo's (or another moderator in his absence) choosing.

    The new constitution presented by the constitution revision committee will already be reviewed and authorized by Strilo (or another moderator if he is unavailable).

    Questions will be answered by the constitution revision committee on the first day; in the AM of the second day the presiding officer will lead the senate in a vote to ratify the new constitution. Voting ends at Noon, forum time, on day three. If the vote is 2/3rds or more in favor, the constitution is ratified; otherwise, the constitution from session 1 will continue to be the working constitution.

    The new constitution will have provisions for the first election of the new session; if the new constitution is rejected (i.e. not ratified); the vice chancellor at the end of session 1 (Darth_Integral) will preside over the election and the session 1 supreme chancellor (Kalio_Dynkos) will have tie breaking authority all as outlined in the election process. If Darth Integral is not available, LemmingLord will act as Vice Chancellor for that election process; if Kalio_Dynkos is not available, Warrior_Of_Mandalore will act as Supreme Chancellor for the election process.

    LemmingLord will contact all senators from the end of session 1 in a week in advance of the official session 2 start date.

    Very good, Senators. Allow me to contact our Speaker of the House about this meta-motion. As soon as he replies and starts sending th PMs to all Senators I will begin the voting process. I'd hate for anybody to be lost in this voting period.

    Frankly, however, I do not believe that this necessitates a constitutional amendment. Especially since this motion is very, very specific, even mentioning names.
