Amend the Delegacy Act to Clarify Powers
« on: January 18, 2016, 09:47:39 PM »
I believe it would be prudent for us to formalize and clarify how foreign affairs are handled by adding the following language to the Delegacy Act:

Quote from: Delegacy Act
1. Qualifications and Election
1. Any citizen of Taijitu may stand for election to the office of Citizen-Delegate.
2. An election for Citizen-Delegate will be held if three months have passed since the start of the previous election, the Ecclesia chooses to hold an election by a majority vote, or the office of Citizen-Delegate is vacant.
3. No person may serve as Citizen-Delegate for more than two consecutive terms.
4. The Ecclesia may remove the Citizen-Delegate by a majority vote.

2. Powers and Responsibilities
1. The Citizen-Delegate will serve as head of state and conduct foreign policy.
2. The Citizen-Delegate will hold the in-game delegacy of the region of Taijitu with full powers and will exercise them as provided by law.
3. The Citizen-Delegate may negotiate treaties and embassy exchanges.
4. The Ecclesia may ratify treaties and embassy exchanges negotiated by the Citizen-Delegate by a majority vote.
5. The Ecclesia may repeal a treaty or embassy exchange by a majority vote.

3. Citizen-Diplomats
1. The Citizen-Delegate may appoint any number of citizens of Taijitu as citizen-diplomats to assist them in conducting foreign policy.
2. The Citizen-Delegate may dismiss citizen-diplomats at any time.
3. The Ecclesia may remove any citizen-diplomat by a majority vote.
4. Citizen-Diplomats may appoint any number of Citizens as Citizen-Ambassadors to extend the message of the Glorious Revolution to other regions.

I think "conduct foreign policy" should be more clearly defined. Such as maintaining embassies, communication, a stable of diplomats, etc.
