    Information

    Post by Kaevi on Fri May 08, 2015 12:02 pm

    The debate period shall now begin. It shall last five days, ending on May 13, 2015, at 00:00 UTC. Following the voting period, a three-day voting period shall commence. The Speaker may extend the debate period if requested by a 4/5 majority of nations debating a bill, and may close it with a 4/5 consensus. The author of the proposal may also close the debate with the permission of the Speaker.

    Votes will be counted via simple majority of nations present. Nations may submit a vote of for, against, or abstention. The Speaker wishes to inform abstention voters that votes of abstention will be counted as votes in favor. Votes cast during the debate period will not be counted.

    We wish to amend the above to allow for the absence of the Chief Justice. For example, should the Chief Justice resign, then the oldest residing (in the region) nation who is an Associate justice should administer the elections.

    This has now been implemented.

    The dates signed are based on the RP Calendar or the Real Time Calendar?

    They are based on real-life time. This has now been specified in the resolution.

    If there are no further concerns I will begin the voting period.
