We Had a Short Amendment Buried in a Larger One Act

WHEREAS, Before the last General Election, Article VIII, Section 5 of the Organic Law read, "Each MC will represent, for ceremonial purposes, a particular geographical "constituency." The exact procedure will be determined by law.", and

WHEREAS, In 2012 we fixed the "will represent" problem by passing a law (44RZ25) declaring that those who wish to represent a particular constituency need only declare such representation, and that those who do not choose a particular constituency shall be deemed to represent the Kingdom as a whole, and

WHEREAS, The author of an omnibus amendment to change various parts of election law decided that 44RZ25 had no effect, and despite it being unnecessary, he decided to amend Article VIII Section 5, and

WHEREAS, His omnibus amendment was passed, ratified, and proclaimed, and

WHEREAS, Article VIII, Section 5 of the Organic Law now reads, "Each MC may represent, for ceremonial purposes, a particular geographical "constituency." The exact procedure will be determined by law.", and

WHEREAS, When El Lexhatx was created, 44RZ25 was incorporated into the code, but only the portion which read "Any Member of Cosa that does not wish to or fails to choose a particular constituency to represent shall be deemed to be representing The Kingdom of Talossa and its citizens as a whole." (H.10), and

WHEREAS, H.10 of El Lexhatx now conflicts with the recent changes to Organic Law, because MCs no longer need to be "deemed" to represent a particular constituency, and

WHEREAS, We still need to prescribe the exact procedure for representing a constituency for those who do wish to represent one, and

WHEREAS, In keeping with the "Short Act" traditions, I have once again tried to make this as not-short as possible, and

WHEREAS, I believe I have accomplished that goal, NOW

THEREFORE, Section H, Subsection 10 of El Lexhatx which currently reads: 10. Any Member of Cosa that does not wish to or fails to choose a particular constituency to represent shall be deemed to be representing The Kingdom of Talossa and its citizens as a whole.


shall be amended to read: 10. Members of Cosa shall be free to represent any constituency within the geographic boundaries of the Kingdom of Talossa including any and all of its territories and overseas colonies. Any Member wishing to represent a constituency shall publicly declare such representation before the conclusion of the first Clark following a General Election.
