    The debate period shall now begin. It shall last five days, ending on May 22, 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.

    Perhaps the commissioner should have the same term as the Sec.-Gen.?

    This has now been added, along with appointment and impeachment information.

    We also are confused as to whether the commission has three or five seats.

    It varies every other election cycle. In the current state, five seats will be available in the next election.

    This is primarily to keep the atmosphere lively and allow periods of creativity in the event new nations join.

    We would prefer to keep it at either three or five, as alternating seats would make elections rather tedious.

    It has now been edited to keep the ECC at three seats unless the organization decides to expand to five when all seats are filled. More detail as to this process has been added.
    Given that there is only one person as of now, I see that we may have a three-seat structure for a while.

    Is this compromise acceptable to the GA? I can include an implementation delay to some point in the future if necessary.

    Speaking strictly as the Chief Justice we would prefer that it be implemented as soon as possible so it can be included in the special election. Other than that we are happy with the legislation.
