    RWA Draft v2

    Post by RWA on Thu 5 Aug 2010 - 18:32

    First topic message reminder :

    The Preamble
    We
    the nations of The United States, in the interests of forming a more
    perfect region, based on the virtues of a vibrant and interactive online
    community of Nation States establish this Constitution for The United
    States.

    Article I -
    The Legislative Branch
    Section 1: The Legislature
    All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of
    the United States, which shall consist of The Senate and The Assembly.

    Section 2: The Assembly

    The Assembly will consist of every respective citizen of The United States.

    Clause A:

    The Assembly will have the authority to draft any law, regulation,
    amendment, or order to govern the region that does not unduly inhibit
    the constitutional authority directed to the other branches or the
    nations of the region.

    Clause B:
    Such drafts, after the majority approval of at least 51% [See Article IV, Section 1: Standing Orders] of the bodies members, then go to the Senate for further review. [See Section 3, Clause B]

    Clause C:

    The Assembly will also be given the authority of starting all charges
    of impeachment (of elected officials) or treason, they may also call for
    a criminal case against a non-elected official in the government, to be
    tried by the [insert court name] all under the majority vote of at
    least 51% of the bodies members.

    Section 2: The Senate
    The
    Senate will be comprised of a select number of elected members. The
    number of seats will be relative to the number of Citizens, which for
    starting purposes shall be set to 5 Citizens to 1 Senate Seat. The
    timing of elections, as well as the ratio of citizens to seats shall be

    nations of the region.

    Clause B:
    In order for this legislation to pass, a majority vote is required,
    relative to the number of Senate Seats, unless a member specifically
    abstains from voting. In order to become law, the Consuls signature is
    required and in the case of constitutional Amendments a 3/4ths vote, as
    well as a majority vote in the Assembly. Drafts from The Assembly may be
    altered in any fashion, however The Assembly with a 3/4ths vote may
    block the move of the legislation to the Consul and demand a committee
    to be formed. (see Article IV, Section 1: Standing Orders) This
    committee must then adjust the legislation so that both bodies approve.

    Clause C:
    The Senate will handle all trials of impeachment or treason, expect in
    the case of one of its own members - in this case the [insert court
    name] will run the trial. Standard voting rules apply.

    Appointments of [insert court name] [insert judge title] will also be
    confirmed by the Senate, by standard vote, as well as any appointments
    to a Consul or legislative created position or office within the
    Executive.

    Section 3: Legislative Heads
    The Assembly will be
    lead by the Speaker of The Assembly and The Senate by the President of
    The Senate. Each will be elected at the start of a term according to the
    standard vote rule. Each can be removed in the same fashion. They will
    help keep order in both bodies and operate them per the Standing Orders.

    Article II: The Executive Branch
    Section 1:

    Executive Branch will be lead by the Consul and all Powers of the
    Executive as outlined in Article II, Section 2 will be his or his

    the formal head of state. An election must begin by the 7th day after
    the ratification of this document. Elections will be governed by
    Standing Orders.

    Clause A:The Executive Branch shall be
    responsible for recruitment, maintaining foreign embassies (both on our
    forum and foreign forums), running elections, maintaining citizenship
    rolls, running the military and handling WA policy.

    Clause B:

    Consul may also issue Executive Orders, which may only govern matters
    in which the Executive controls. Such Orders may be declared

    Section 1: The [insert court name]
    All Judicial Powers herein granted shall be vested in a panel of nations, the [insert court name] of the United States.

    Section 2: Appointment & Seats
    The
    number of seats on the court will be set by the Senate, relative to the
    census conducted by the Executive. The number of seats must always be
    odd, and for the purposes of the start up of the region - will be set to
    three. Two will hold the title Tribune and one the title of Chief
    Tribune. All will serve a life-term, or until resignation. In order to
    be appointed the Consul must select them and the Senate approve. To
    remove a Justice a Consul may ask The Assembly to begin removal
    proceedings, with the Senate having final say.

    Section 3: Powers of the Judiciary
    The
    [insert court name] will have the final authority on matters of the
    Constitution and criminal matters. (They may review Senate decisions on
    Treason at the request of the Consul or nation on trial and with a
    unanimous decision overturn) Standing Orders will govern the day to day
    operation of the court.

    Section 4: Activation Clause
    Due to
    the undo need of such an organization directly at the "founding" of a
    region, this Court will remain inactive until September the 1st, 2010.
    However, a vote of The Assembly, The Senate and an Executive Order from
    the Consul can decrease the deadline, or if deemed necessary delay it.

    Article IV: Matters of Governance

    Section 1: Standing Orders
    Each
    branch of Government is expected to maintain at LEAST one constant
    Standing Order list. This list will have details on how to conduct the
    day to day operation of the various aspects of our government. Standing
    Orders are determined by the heads of each branch, Consul for the
    Executive, Chief Tribune for the Judiciary and the Speaker of The
    Assembly and the President of the Senate for the Legislature.

    Section 2: Citizenship
    The
    original citizens of the region will consist of the list created during
    the 7 day period prior to August 1st, 2010. The future of Citizenship
    however, will lay with the future legislature.

    Section 3: The Legion
    The
    military of the United States will be known as The Legion. The military
    will maintain the sovereignty and regional security of the region and
    her allies.

    Section: Amendments
    Realizing the imperfection of
    any document, Amendments to the Constitution can be made in the manner
    described in Article I, Section 2: Clause B.

    The court name is simple enough.

    The idea of official war is vague however.

    Citizenship time line needs adjustment.

    I also want to adjust the activation clause.

    Should expand on the legion details probably.

    Also I was thinking of a separate document, establishing a list of rights.
