Officeholders Need to Show up Amendment

To the end of Article VIII Section 3 of the Constitution, add the following:

Quote
3. If any officeholder, elected or appointed, federal, regional, or subregional, fails to vote in a regularly scheduled election, they shall immediately and automatically forfeit any office held or won. Additionally, for one's election to office to be valid, they must cast a vote in said election. This clause shall be retroactive to April 2024.

Quote
Amendment Explanation:

This amendment will help remedy the situation of chronically absent officeholders leaving themselves and the nation in limbo for months, by having any officeholder who misses a regularly scheduled election automatically forfeit any office held or won, and by requiring one to vote in an election in order to win any election. This does NOT require one to vote for any particular candidate or affect anyone's citizenship.

Save the Senate Amendment

Modify Article III, Section 1 of the Constitution as follows:

Quote
(...)
3. The Senate shall consist of eighteen Senators; nine elected at large and one elected for each region and each subregion. Effective July 6th, 2024, The Senate shall be permantely reduced to a size of twelve senators, six elected at-large and one for each subregion. However, this section shall not be construed to prevent any duly elected senator from completing any term to which they have been elected, with the full rights, powers, and privileges of said office.
(...)

Modify Article III, Section 2 of the Constitution as follows:


Quote

1. The manner of election for at-large Senators shall be as follows:
i. The nine six at-large Senators shall be elected for a term of two months by the eligible voters of the Republic according to a method of proportional representation prescribed by the Senate. Elections for the seats shall be held in the months of February, April, June, August, October, and December.
ii. If no other method of proportional representation is prescribed by law, at-large Senate elections shall operate on single transferable vote.
iii. At-large Senate vacancies shall be filled through appointment by the executive of the former Senator’s Party; but should a vacancy occur as the result of the death, expulsion, or resignation of an at-large Senator not being a member of a major Party, then a special election shall be held within twenty days of the vacancy to choose a replacement to serve the remainder of the existing term. Effective July 6th, 2024, the seats of the members elected 7th, 8th, and 9th according to the June 2024 Election Results shall not be filled if they become vacant. Ties shall be broken according to most first preferences, then most second preferences, and so on. In the case of such a vacancy, such a seat will not be relevant to the question of passage or quorum on any matter before the Senate.

The manner of selection for regional Senators shall be as follows:
i. Each region shall elect a Senator for a term of four months by popular election of the region’s residents administered by the regional government in a manner prescribed by the legislature thereof. Regional Senate elections shall be held in the months of February, June, and October.
ii. Regional Senate vacancies occurring more than thirty days prior to the end of the term shall be filled by special election of the region’s residents administered by the regional government within twenty days of the vacancy.

iii. Regional Senate vacancies occurring within thirty days of the end of the term, as well as the interim between a vacancy and a prescribed special election, may be filled in accordance with the laws of the region in question; should no such law exist then the region’s executive shall have the power to make such an appointment. Effective July 6th, 2024, no remaining or future regional senate vacancy shall be filled. In the case of such a vacancy, such a seat will not be relevant to the question of passage or quorum on any matter before the Senate.
(...)

Quote from: Amendment Explanation

In accordance with declining activity in the game, this will reduce the size of the Senate to 12 seats, six at large and one from each subregion. It is implemented gradually to avoid holding elections to non-existent seats and provide time for affected senators to find their next role in the game.

  • foster a genuine movement towards reconciliation between settlers and indigenous people that acknowledges rather than sidesteps the violence and trauma of settler colonialism;
  • issue policy recommendations to improve the material and socioeconomic conditions of indigenous peoples, protect the sacred lands, waters and resources of indigenous peoples from desecration and pollution, defend and expand indigenous political sovereignty and develop genuine government-to-government relationships between the Republic of Atlasia and indigenous nations; and,
  • under the leadership of indigenous elders and with the robust public input of indigenous communities, chart a path towards reparations for the genocide, dispossession, displacement and other crimes against humanity committed by the U.S., Atlasia and their respective regional, state and local governments against indigenous peoples.

ii. The Office of Truth, Reconciliation and Reparations established in the above section shall be allocated $100 million dollars annually.

SECTION 4. Implementation and Cost
