47RZ38: The Election Mega-constitutional amendment Part VII - The Political parties

WHEREAS I attempted a massive reform of the Organic Law and it failed AND

WHEREAS people asked me to divide it in parts because one or two parts were controversial and others were fine AND

WHEREAS the idea of a computerized voting form never entered the mind of the legislatures AND

WHEREAS in reality, 85% of the votes sent to the Chancery from the 47th Cosa were made using that online form AND

WHEREAS a lot of critic has been made on the fact that there were not drop-downs in the form AND

WHEREAS the law doesn't currently allow said drop-downs since anyone can vote for anything AND

WHEREAS that's not even counting stealth parties or party hijacking when a voter votes for an un-registered party and someone else registers it for them AND

THEREFORE the ziu resolves to:

Amend the Organic law as follows:

Article VI: Political Parties

Section 2 which currently reads:

Only "registered" political parties may obtain seats in the Cosâ. Parties which win votes but are not registered may not assume their seats in the Cosâ until they register. A party may register at any time with the Secretary of State as follows: First, the party must have at least one member designated as its "Leader." Second, the leader must provide the Secretary of State with a 50-word (or less) statement of the general aims and views of the party. Third, the Secretary of State may request from all parties a fee, to be set by law, to cover the cost of the election. This fee shall be uniform for all parties.

Is split and amended into multiple sections as follows:

Section 2:

Only fully "registered" political parties may obtain seats in the Cosâ. Parties which win votes but are not fully registered may not assume their seats in the Cosâ until they are fully registered.

Section 3:

To be fully registered, a party needs to both file an application to the chancery and pay any fees for registration as set by law. This fee shall be uniform for all parties.

Section 4:

To file an application, the leader of a party needs to submit to the Chancery at least 24 hours prior to Ballot day the following documentation:

• The full party name

• The party initials as defined by law the voters will use to vote

• A 50-words or less statement of the general aims and views of the party

• The name of the party leader(s)

Upon filing an application, the party is "filed" or "pre-registered" and can be printed on the Ballot as one of the choices, regardless of status of payment.

At this moment or at any point before Ballot day, the leader of the party may also submit to the Chancery the following documentation for possible display on the ballot:

• The URL of a party platform • A candidate list for seats
