WHEREAS last time we proposed this bill it was said by many that there had not been enough time to discuss the subject, and

WHEREAS now we have had almost an entire term to think about it now, so:

WHEREAS there are more Cosa seats than citizens, and

WHEREAS this reduces competition for Cosa seats, and

WHEREAS we need more Talossan citizens who don't hold seats to fill other offices, and

WHEREAS a 200 seat Cosa means we would probably have to wait an eternity for this to be realistic, and

WHEREAS with a smaller Cosa this goal might actually be realistic on the medium long term, but

WHEREAS switching to a 20 seat Cosa now would have some unwanted consequences, and

WHEREAS this compromise leaves smaller parties a better chance of getting back in the Cosa as long as they can get more than one vote than a threshold or a 20 seat Cosa would, and

WHEREAS a 60 seat Cosa is much more proportional than a 20 seat Cosa or a Cosa with a threshold, now

THEREFORE WE, the Ziu, hereby enact the following:

Article VIII, Section 1 of the Organic Law, which previously read: “The Cosâ is composed of 200 seats, apportioned among political parties based on their performance in the General Election”

Will be amended to read: “The Cosâ is composed of 60 seats, apportioned among political parties based on their performance in the General Election”;

FURTHERMORE:

Article VIII Section 3, which previously read: “Seats won by each party shall be divided by that party among its own members and supporters as it sees fit, with the proviso that each Member of the Cosâ may hold no more than thirty seats.”

Will be amended to read: “Seats won by each party shall be divided by that party among its own members and supporters as it sees fit, with the proviso that each Member of the Cosâ may hold no more than nine seats and seats must be assigned as a whole and cannot be divided among multiple MCs." UNLESS "The Share the Cosa Take Two Amendment" is approved in a referendum at the same date as this amendment, in which case the Share the Cosa Take Two Amendment takes precendence regarding Article VIII, section 3"
