The President has enough power. He makes appointments and can dissolve a branch of parliament. The point is that the GM is a position that should not be left to the decision of one man. The office is subject to abuse and inactivity that requires some method to undo.

Elections would typically be the method, I would imagine. Especially since they're likely to happen more often under a parliamentary model.

Just a question. Did you remove my section of Article III dealing with Presidential powers?

I removed the Cabinet (as it is now the PMs), the State of the Forum address (that has never been practiced in my experience), and all references to the VP.

I was referring to the Section 3 of my proposed article on the President which is now on the floor.

I hadn't referred to it, but I can throw it in. Some of it seems extraneous to Atlasia.

What does everyone think of Hashemite's list of presidential powers?

The list is good. The only problem is ''largely stolen from the Slovak Constitution''. We should remove it in the final version.

I bring the following article on the presidency to the floor for a vote. Please vote Aye, Nay, or Abstain. This shall last for 48 hours.

Aye on the Supreme Court.

Could people explain why they're voting nay on the President section?

Thank you to all those who voted, although I am disappointed by the growing number of delegates that seem to be drifting away from the Convention.

That is because this whole Convention is taking way to long.
