C. A. S. Constitutional Convention

Post by Unovia on Thu Mar 07, 2013 11:41 am

Valgard City, Unovia
Ben Connors, Leader of Unovia, sat at his desk. "Ok. We have set up this Constitutional Convention. Now we have to wait." He called in his secretary, Lauren Hughes. "Mrs. Hughes, get me the Constitutional Convention proposal." "Yes sir", she said. 10 minutes later, the proposal was on his desk. "Hopefully we can get going on this soon."
In front of the Government building, there was a banner. It read,
DELEGATES! WELCOME TO THE CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION!

Connors greeted, then spoke. "Hello Zakiristan. It is great to see you. Well, I hope to start as soon as Turkieye, Schorr, Aloia, and New Zealand show up here."
He pulled out his proposal. "Do make yourself comfortable, this will take a bit, as all of us, I am sure, will have differing ideas on how to create this government and Constitution."

*New-Zealand Ambassador Johnson runs in* "Sorry I am late, the traffic on the way here was just gridlocked for miles. Some idiot was driving to fast and knife jacked his truck, he ended up blocking the entire south bound side of the highway. I do commend your emergency service though, they were there in an instant and got the road cleared up in a few hours." *He then sits down in his chair and takes a large drink from his glass of water*

Connors said, "Well, welcome to you all. We have two more members who are planning to come, but I don't know when they will show up, so lets start this Convention."
Connors continued. There are 3 things we are here to discuss. First, of course is the writing of the Constitution. Second, we are going to discuss locations for a planned regional capital. Third, we will discuss Government offices and basic structure."
Connors sat back.

Connors said, "Ok. Lets get to the first issue, the writing of the Constitution." He pulled out a folder. "This is the Unovian proposal." He put it on the desk and asked Mrs. Hughes to distribute copies. "The version we are offering is 2 and 1/2 pages." The option offered read as follows:
The Constitution of The Confederacy of Allied States
Preamble
We, the nations assembled and within the region of The Confederacy of Allied States, in order to officially organize as a region, do propose this Constitution to be in effect as long as the region exists. We, as a region, believe this region to be of a sound basis for a Government by the nations and for the nations.

Crown Prince Eric, son of Queen Aetra, replies, "I'm still not sure what purpose the jury serves. If they don't have any voice in the court discussions, what purpose do they serve?"
"I agree with Eric. I also would support some kind of security council charged with maintaining the safety and stability of all nations in the region. We could have a massive coalition of armies to do the bidding of the council," Athena Rhodes, official representative of Aloia states.

Connors said, "This is a proposal. If you have an idea on how to fix it, or have a proposal of your own, please bring it up. How would you address those questions in a Constitution?"

"I suggest we eliminate the jury and create a security council. The council will be served by the 5 nations with the largest military forces and be overseen by the Parliament. The Parliament will tell the Security Council how to act and what actions to take and the members of the Security Council will oversee the mobilization of the armies, navies and air forces when they need to go to war to defend freedom," Athena replied.

Connors said, "Ok. That makes a lot of sense. Article IV will be amended to better fit the needs of the nations in the region."
He looked at the others. "Are there any changes you all would suggest we make?"

I walked into the conference room and quickly picked a seat at the table. I had been sent as the represenative of Kambana, a former colony of Unovia that is now independent. Our President Jallin Lamor has pushed for us to join the C.A.S and it eventually passed the Congress. I greeted President Connors of Unovia.

"Hello Mr. President. I am sorry for my late arrival. I will be representing Kambana at this convention."

I sat back down. Connors must have thought it was ironic, that a man of Unovian descent would be representing Kambana at this summit. Well, I smiled to myself and loosened my tie and cuffs nd grabbed a cup of coffee. I then looked over the articles thus far and made my position known.

"My first thought is that a simple majority is not enough to ratify this constitution. Article IX states as of now that all is required is a majority. But what if it passes by a narrow fold of only two, or even one nation? And will all nations have a single vote, regardless of size and population? Or will all nations have a single vote? I feel we must be more specific when building a government. I propose that a 2/3 is required for ratification. And all naions regardless of size will have only a single vote."

Connors said, "Hello Mr. Collins. So you are arguing one nation, one vote. We intended to let this be open to all nations. I am not sure if we can get 2/3 of all nations in the region. Most don't even actively participate. If anything, maybe the vote should be 2/3 of all ACTIVE Nations in the region. Otherwise it may never be passed."
