Law:The Accountability of Elected Officials Act
The Accountability of Elected Officials Act
WHEREAS in a democracy the people rule, and
WHEREAS people must be kept informed as to the official actions of their elected representatives, in order to know whether their representatives are in fact "representing" them, and
WHEREAS current Talossan law prevents voters from holding Members of the Cosâ and Senators accountable on the issue of votes on incoming citizens, because these votes are kept secret, and
WHEREAS this secrecy is inconsistent with the public actions of the Uppermost Cort on citizenship votes, and runs contrary to the ideals of an accountable elected government;
THEREFORE the Ziu hereby annuls the section of the citizenship law providing for secret votes on citizens, and mandates that votes on citizens in the Ziu shall be reported the same as all other votes in the Ziu.
