QueenRebellia: Greetings and welcome to New Alderaan the newest member of the Federation

Ormund Selic gives a clap and smile “And a welcome to you into our council..”

X-1619 ‘Downz’ looks among the delegates “Apologies for the meeting changing at last moment. It would appear Tython is having an issue with Nightsisters at the moment.”

QueenRebellia snorts “Perhaps it was not a prudent choice to give them sanctuary”

Ormund Selic frowns “Well now I am sure they understand Yavin’s actions a bit better..”

‘X-1619 ‘Downz’ looked over “Yes, well, let us get to our pressing matter. The Constitution, does anyone have any final word changes, or things they would like to bring up?”

Ormund Selic clears his throat “i do not”

Aiden: “Well, the Kalway Jedi’s actions. Yavin itself did not deport the nightsisters, considering it a Jedi affair, but that could change, if the nightsisters become more of a problem”

QueenRebellia: Are we all agreed on the provisions of Mediator-ship ?

Aiden: “Or…” reads his datapad. “Guess I’m in error. Seems the Yavin IV government did revoke their visas.” remarks idly. “Why am I the last to know this?”

QueenRebellia smiles at Aiden wondering what kept him busy

Ormund Selic chuckles and waits for the rest ot be spoken of

X-1619 ‘Downz’ looked around “Okay, at the last meeting, everyone had agreed to the constitution. Expect for Dantooine, as Master Golds was unable to attend. However I believe Yavin IV, has some changes?”

Aiden: “Er, yes, minor tweaks, really.”

X-1619 ‘Downz’ nods “Okay, shall we hear them, then.”

Aiden: “Yes, just a moment.” looks at his notes.

X-1619 ‘Downz’ tells a joke

X-1619 ‘Downz’ looked to Levi “How is your situation at the Colony?”

Ormund Selic looks over to Downz and clears his throat “Ah…well it is much calmer. Still a bit tense. Death threats and the like…but luckily some of my loyalists have put together a small militia to act as my personal guards while I’m on world” The young senator explains. “But as far as I can tell, I am in the clear for now”

X-1619 ‘Downz’ nods “Excellent!” he’d look over to Golds “How is Dantooine going?”

Golds’Hark: “It is being fine despite of the murder trial. investigations are  classified yet”

X-1619 ‘Downz’ nods “Excellent to hear. Queen Reb, do you have anything you’d like to share about New Alderaan?”

Aiden rummages through his notes.  “Okay, think I’m ready here.”

QueenRebellia: I do, but will do so once the matters regarding the constitution are done

X-1619 ‘Downz’ nods “Senator Aiden, fire away. ”

Aiden: “The first matter was a clarification on taxes” he explains all ICly some good point while I, the player make the actual ooc point.

Aiden: “Okay, so the next matter was just a little bit of wording tweaking. Let me quote the Kalway Grandmaster who I sought advice from.” thumbs through his notes to find the spot. ” article 2, section 1… this line “The Executive of The Federation consist of 3 positions namely Chairman, Vice-Chairman, and Secretary of State , to be elected or appointed as the case maybe in the manner enumerated subsequently.” probably should be changed to “The Executive Branch of The Federation consists of 3 positions, namely Chairman, Vice-Chairman, and Secretary of State, to be elected or appointed as the case may be, in the manner enumerated subsequently.” Otherwise it reads that maybe the executives are outlined as follows, or maybe not.””Just a minor wording change suggestion there.”

QueenRebellia nods “Agreed”

Golds’Hark: disagree

Ormund Selic was about to speak until golds spoke, staying quiet to see what she had to say.

Golds’Hark: ” the word  ‘maybe not’ is very world wise, and can give place for corruption or even exchange of favors, If we want a Federation clearly effective and respected we can not give any margin to further interpretations according relevances whatsoever”

Aiden smacks forehead. “The word maybe not was not part of the proposed change.”

X-1619 ‘Downz’ looks over “That is why, we are wanting to change the word, from maybe to may be.”

Ormund Selic chuckles “I agree with Aiden..”

Golds’Hark: “as  clearly said before : … “The Executive Branch of The Federation consists of 3 positions, namely Chairman, Vice-Chairman, and Secretary of State, to be elected or appointed as the case may be, in the manner enumerated subsequently.” Otherwise it reads that maybe the executives are outlined as follows, or maybe not.”

Golds’Hark: “maybe not “,,,, we shall be clear on every instance

Aiden: “Hmm.” rubs his chin. “So, how *should* it be worded?”

QueenRebellia: “The Executive Branch of The Federation consists of 3 positions, namely Chairman, Vice-Chairman, and Secretary of State, to be elected or appointed as the case may be, in the manner enumerated subsequently.”

Golds’Hark: “better”

Ormund Selic nods “Agreed”

Aiden: “Agreed”

QueenRebellia: Are there any further changes proposed ?

Golds’Hark: “specify how long and how many times they can be elected and/or re elected?

QueenRebellia: Section 1 continues : “The authority and powers of the Executive flows from the elected congress. All elected officials will hold their positions for 4 months time (elected periods) and may only run for 3 terms, unless the amount of terms allowed to be served is extended by a unanimous vote by the current members of the Congress.”

Aiden nods

Aiden: “So that is covered, yes?”

Aiden: “Another wording tweak I have.”

Aiden: “but I’ll wait until we’re sure this issue from Master Golds is handled.”

Golds’Hark: nods as expressing them to go ahead

Aiden: “The other tweak from Grandmaster Iria was a continuation of her previous point in a later section. She said ‘and same thing in “Section 1 – Subsection 2: Elections or appointments as the case maybe should be held within 1 month of a post falling vacant or of an incumbent becoming incapacitated.” Should be, “Section 1 – Subsection 2: Elections or appointments, as the case may be, should be held within 1 month of a post falling vacant or of an incumbent becoming incapacitated.”‘ ”

‘Downz’X-1619 ‘Downz’ nods, looking around for agreements or disagreements on that

Aiden: “Just a change to ‘may be’ I believe.”

QueenRebellia nods

Aiden: “So, my last thing, also from the Grandmaster. She was concerned that the Chairman could just appoint anyone as vice chairman after he or she was elected. I explained to her that the intent was that the vice chairman would actually be a running mate with the chairman during elections and that they’d be elected together, but she pointed out that the constitution doesn’t say that.”

X-1619 ‘Downz’: Is that all the changes?

Aiden: “Well, that was all I had to share. As I said, very minor things that don’t really change anything, just clean up and clarify.”

Ormund Selic shakes his head ” I do not”

QueenRebellia: I think we can afford some discretion to the Chairman to appoint the Vice Chairman. There is a shortage of good politicians and would not want to limit the Chairman’s choice of a good candidate

Aiden nods as he is looking over his notes, missing the list of it, or he might object. “Mhmm” agrees assuming it’s a valid point.

Downz’X-1619 ‘Downz’ nods “Right, was there any more changes?”

Aiden: “Not from the Yavin delegation.”

X-1619 ‘Downz’: Right than

X-1619 ‘Downz’: I move a motion, to scrap the current Constitution.”

QueenRebellia nods “Agreed”

Ormund Selic looks over “Scrap…the one we just made..or the old one?”

QueenRebellia: The old one which is currently in force

Ormund Selic blushes and clears his throat “Oh…ah..sorry. Then yes..

‘X-1619 ‘Downz’ looked to Dantooine “Dantooine?”

Aiden: “Agreed.”

Golds’Hark: continue, please”

X-1619 ‘Downz’ looked to Tython who justed arrived “Tython, our current vote, is on scrapping the current Constitution, to make way for voting for the new one.”

Tee’leka Kani’a: * smiles ” apologies for my late arrival”

X-1619 ‘Downz’ nods “All is well. Does Tython agree to scrapping the current constitution?”

Tee’leka Kani’a: ” Tython agrees”

X-1619 ‘Downz’ nods “Dantooine, you have said continue please, is that an Agreeance to scraping?”

Golds’Hark: “yes

X-1619 ‘Downz’X-1619 ‘Downz’ nods “Then, it has been decided, by an unanimous vote, the Constitution is scrapped.”

X-1619 ‘Downz’: I now, will bring forth, for voting on, the new constitution. All those in favor, say Aye.

QueenRebellia: “Aye”

Ormund Selic nods “Aye”

Tee’leka Kani’a: “aye”

X-1619 ‘Downz’ looked over “Yavin IV and Dantooine?”

Aiden: “Aye”

X-1619 ‘Downz’: Dantooine?

Tee’leka Kani’a: *reaches over the balcony and prods the dantooine reps,,,*

Destiny VuissentDestiny Vuissent looks across to Golds’Hark

Tee’leka Kani’a: ” my apologize fellow representatives,, i must return to Tython,, our vote is cast,, i hope to receive the result in due course,, long live the republic!”

QueenRebellia nods “Farewell”

Ormund Selic coughs

X-1619 ‘Downz’ nods “Thank you for attending.” he’d look to Dantooine and wait

Golds’Hark: “yes”

Tee’leka Kani’a: * nods regards to all and leaves for his shuttle”

X-1619 ‘Downz’: Excellent!

Tee’leka Kani’a: ” hears that on the way out”

X-1619 ‘Downz’ would start clapping Ladies and Gentleman of the Congress, we have now ratified our new Constitution! Congratulations to all!

QueenRebellia smiles

Ormund Selic smiles and laughs “Well that is quite a weight off of our shoulders”

Tee’leka Kani’a: *smiles in the doorway and leaves*

Aiden claps loudly, relieved. “Now on to elections.” laughs heartily in his deep bellowing way.

X-1619 ‘Downz’ looked around “Well, I think, we can adjourn for today. Months of work, has come to completion. Elections shall most likely start this week, I will quickly review the constitution on them, then send a notice out for them.”
