WHEREAS Article VIII Section 3 of the Organic Law reads, “Seats won by each party shall be divided by that party among its own members and supporters as it sees fit, with the proviso that each Member of the Cosâ may hold no more than thirty seats”, but

WHEREAS in today’s more populous Talossa, thirty seats is way too many for any one MC to hold, and

WHEREAS in tomorrow's even more populous Talossa, it would be cool (and cool is what we're all about) if the number of seats per MC would maybe drop proportionally, enabling more and more Talossan citizens to become involved in the national government, and

WHEREAS letting the Ziu decide and re-decide things that are worth changing with the times is better than setting them forever in stone in the Organic Law, and

WHEREAS we just spent a couple WHEREAS's showing that this seating thing is just such a "worth changing with the times" kind of thing, now

THEREFORE the Senäts and Cosa hereby approve the following Amendment to the Organic Law, and transmit it to the populace for ratification.

Article VIII Section 3 of the Organic Law is amended to read:

Each party shall assign its seats to such individuals as it sees fit, provided that each such individual is eligible to serve in the Cosa under this article and is assigned a whole number of seats. The Ziu may by law establish a maximum number of seats that any one Member of the Cosa may hold by law, but the minimum number of Members of the Cosa shall be no less than the number of Senators, and the same limit shall apply to all Members of the Cosa, and any changes to the limit shall take effect no earlier than the distribution of seats after the next General Election.

FURTHERMORE, the King, the Senäts, and the Cosa in this present Ziu assembled, hereby enact, effective for the distribution of seats after the ratification and proclamation of the above amendment, that:

No person shall hold more seats in the Cosa than ten times the total number of seats in the Cosa divided by the number of ballots cast for the Cosa in the most recent General Election, rounded up to the next integer.
