Law:The Replacing the House Law Act (Amendment)
37RZ6 — The Replacing the House Law Act (Amendment)
WHEREAS the rules governing the succession of the Crown are currently found partly in the Organic Law itself, and partly in the House Law of 11 February 1989 (as subsequently amended), and
WHEREAS it would be more convenient and make better sense to have them all in one place, and
WHEREAS the current law envisages the possibility of the King's adopting an heir, who would then be in line to inherit the Throne, but
WHEREAS that does not seem to be a good idea, and
WHEREAS the current House Law empowers the King to designate an heir, who would then be in line to inherit the Throne, but
WHEREAS that is obviously a bad idea,
THEREFORE the Senäts and Cosâ hereby approve the following amendment to the Organic Law, and transmit it to the populace for ratification:
- Article III, sections 4 and 5 of the Organic Law are replaced in their entirety with the following text:
- Section 4. Should the King at any time renounce or lose his citizenship, that renunciation or loss shall be deemed to imply his abdication of the Throne. Upon the demise, abdication, or removal from the Throne of any King, the Crown shall pass to his next heir; but if the King has no heir, the Crown shall pass to the next heir of the previous King, or (if he in turn has no heir) to the next heir of the next previous King before him, and so on, back to King John.
- For the purpose of determining who is the King's next heir, each person shall be followed in the line of succession by his natural legitimate sons in order of their birth (each followed by his own descendants) followed by his natural legitimate daughters in order of their birth (each followed by her own descendants).
- If the Crown should pass to any person who does not wish at that juncture to become King, who cannot legally be King, who is suspended from the line of succession, who is not a citizen of Talossa, or who has previously been King and has abdicated the Throne, it shall instead pass to the next person after him in the line of succession.
- Section 5. The Ziu may, by a resolution of two thirds of each House, not subject to veto, suspend any person from his place in the line of succession, and may, by a resolution of a majority of either House, not subject to veto, remove such a suspension and restore the suspended person to his place.
FURTHERMORE, the King, the Senäts, and the Cosâ in this present Ziu assembled, hereby enact that:
- Upon the ratification and proclamation of the above amendment, the House Law of 11 February 1989 and The Royal Succession Act (25RZ37) are repealed.
