World Assembly Digest

General Assembly
Improving the world one resolution at a time​

Repeal: “Endangered Species Protection”

Status: Passed
Delegate's Vote: For
Final Vote (World): For: 13,539 Against: 2,859
Final Vote (TNP): For: 478 Against: 92 Percentage of WA nations voting: 38.72%​


Recommendation: The target, Endangered Species Protection, is well meaning but flawed as outlined by this proposed repeal. The target possesses vague definitions and is ambiguous on how far certain aspects it extends its protection to, which causes concern on what is protected and why is neglected in application. The resolution also does not prevent items such as harming organisms in a non-fatal manner, which allows for avenues for abuse. Furthermore, the repeal calls for restorative action to prevent species from remaining low once protected. Finally, replacement legislation must pass as soon as possible so as to protect those various organisms during this repeal.

For this reason, the Ministry of World Assembly Affairs recommends a vote For this proposal.​


Protection Of Airspace

Status: Passed
Delegate's Vote: Against
Final Vote (World): For: 9,737 Against: 6,749
Final Vote (TNP): For: 171 Against: 390 Percentage of WA nations voting: 38.5%​


Recommendation: Protection of Airspace possesses many flaws, the majority of which stem from the proposals definitions. "Aircraft" in the way that it is defined requires sapient beings to have total control over the vehicle at all times. This becomes problematic in UAVs/Drones and even autopilot for manned vehicles as neither would be 'aircraft'. Furthermore, air-foil based flight at increasingly high altitudes is much more complex than a question of whether it is possible or not at any given altitude. This definition also makes the application of all clauses and definitions forthcoming subjective as nations will vary. Finally, this proposal only aims to supply an arbitrary amount of sovereignty that is most likely already present unless further legislation is given. It then further requires supplying information to the ITSC for international travel despite not having any additional mandates to accommodate for the aircrafts responsibilities and works abroad.

For this reason, the Ministry of World Assembly Affairs recommends a vote Against this proposal.​


Preventing Species Extinction​

Status: Passed
Delegate's Vote: For
Final Vote (World): For: 13,528 Against: 1,522
Final Vote (TNP): For: 533 Against: 49 Percentage of WA nations voting: 39.97%​

Recommendation: This comprehensive resolution seeks to expand on protections initially outlined in the recently repealed GAR#66 and enhances regulation to encompass the full scope of living species. The resolution also clarifies the objectives of the WA Endangered Species Committee to better track and adjust for natural fluctuations in species' populations, and to take a more proactive approach in general conservation through strengthened enforcement protocols. Greater onus is also placed on WA nations to ensure habitat protection for at-risk species to reduce encroachment through human development. Nations must also develop plans for species recovery from near-extinction events, update both conservation and recovery plans frequently to align with the most recent science, and make greater efforts to reduce species-threatening pollution within their borders. Finally, the resolution allows common-sense exemptions, with WAESC approval, for nations to waive regulations when species pose a threat to the wellbeing of citizens, and eradication represents a net positive for the overall, living environment.

For these reasons, The Ministry of World Assembly Affairs recommends a vote For this resolution.​

Security Council
Spreading interregional peace and goodwill, via force if necessary​

Condemn Darkesia​

Status: Passed
Delegate's Vote: For
Final Vote (World): For: 13,757 Against: 2,020
Final Vote (TNP): For: 526 Against: 46 Percentage of WA nations voting: 37.65%

Recommendation: Darkesia is a long time player with an extensive history of condemnable acts. They began in the Pacific, serving under the New Pacific Order and advancing their agendas and influence where possible. Darkesia also participated in countless intelligence operations against other regions, namely The West Pacific. Furthermore, Darkesia participated and supported numerous coups in The North Pacific, The West Pacific, and The East Pacific. In conclusion, Darkesia has a history of espionage and undermining of sovereign governments, perpetuating their own agenda wherever they may see fit.

In accordance with the reasoning posted above, the Ministry of World Assembly Affairs recommends a vote For this condemnation.​

Liberate Politics Amino​

Status: Passed
Delegate's Vote: Against
Final Vote (World): For: 11,650 Against: 3,169
Final Vote (TNP): For: 261 Against: 267 Percentage of WA nations voting: 36.5%​

Recommendation: This proposal is factually incorrect and misrepresents the current situation in the target region. Politics Amino is currently not under the control of raiders but is under the control of a defender. This proposal thus miscategorises a defender as a raider. While a repeal of the liberation is not a bad idea, the situation remains fluid. As such, it is important to ensure the contents of the proposal are factually accurate before decisions relating to the repeal are made. In this proposal a significant error has been made. Given all of the above, Politics Amino is currently in protective hands, and there is no reason to rush to change its liberated status.

For these reasons the Ministry of World Assembly Affairs recommends a vote Against this repeal.​

Magicality City, 4/18/19

Dear St Oz,

The government of The North Pacific entreats you to accept Sanjurika as an ambassador between our two regions.He has been a citizen in good standing of The North Pacific for 1 and a half years and a legislator in our Regional Assembly for the same period and we believe he will meet the duties of this posting admirably. His responsibilities will include above all keeping your region informed of important affairs in The North Pacific, supporting our interregional ties by interpersonal ties through social involvement, keeping our government abreast of affairs in your region, and providing services to dual citizens should they be needed and welcome.

By accepting Sanjurika as an ambassador, we hope you will continue to honour the long lasting relationship between The North Pacific and Taijitu.

Sincerely,
McMasterdonia
Minister of Foreign Affairs

Introductions / Greetings and Salutations from The North Pacific!

Hello, hello from the newly appointed ambassador from TNP.

A little about myself: I've been playing NS since 2007. My nation is Isimud. I was once, in the long ago, a citizen of Taijitu.

Anyways, I'll be poking around here, generally being an annoyance and pest, and will be posting TNP propaganda exploring your forum and introducing you to fascinating events in TNP.

Hope that you'll say hello!

Janus
