Law:The Vote of Confidence Act
6RC23 — The Vote of Confidence Act
The following question is to be added at the end of every CLARK form from now on: "Do you wish the current Government to continue in its term of office?"
MC's may vote on this as on any other bill. The results are announced on the next month's CLARK.
If "yes" obtains a majority of the vote, there are no political ramifications.
If, however, "no" obtains a majority of the vote, the Government must resign within 15 days of the announcement, and new elections must begin no later than 15 days after that.
The King may not veto a Vote of Confidence.
Proposed by: Robert Madison (PC-Vuode)
Scribe's Note: The intent of this legislation continues today, while the actual Act has been repealed by supersession. (See Article XII, Section 6 of The 1997 Organic Law of the Kingdom of Talossa)'
