It amends the following:
the Constitution

Fiôvâ Provincial Chancery

WHEREAS the politics of this province is lethargic and could do with some shaking up, and

WHEREAS we have some very capable individuals in Fiova who could make that happen, and

WHEREAS those interested in doing this are often unrewarded in a direct democracy, and

WHEREAS doing something is better than doing nothing, and

WHEREAS a similar system seems to work alright in the EU, and

WHEREAS an ambiguity as to the way in which Executive Orders work should be removed in order to preserve democracy, now

THEREFORE be it enacted by the General Assembly of Fiova the following amendments to our Constitution:

1. The addition of 7.2 under Article VII (The General Assembly) which reads as follows:

The General Assembly shall elect a Standing Committee, or Praisidíeu in the national language, every year in November.

The Praisidíeu shall consist of 3 members, elected by Single Transferable Vote by all General Assembly members. Precise details shall be included in the Fiovan Elections and Referendums Act. The Praisidíeu‘s role shall consist of:

- drafting legislation to present to the General Assembly;
- making nominations for provincial Túischac'h and Secretary of State as and when required;
- suggesting nominations for the Landsdoom to the Cunstavál;
- offering advice to the Capitán and the Government as and when required.

Vacancies in the Praisidíeu between elections will be filled by nomination of the Túischac'h and approval of the General Assembly.

2. An amendment to 9.1 under Article IX (Precedence of Law) to read as follows (with emphasis added purely for the benefit of the General Assembly)

Provincial Law consists of (in order of precedence) the Organic Law of the Kingdom of Talossa, the laws of the Federal Ziu (except in matters reserved to the provinces), this Constitution, the Laws passed by the General Assembly, decisions of the Landsdoom, and Executive Orders. Executive Orders are issued by the Cunstavál in the name of the Government and must be co-signed by the Capitán before becoming law. They may be overturned by the General Assembly.
