    Constitution of eNorway

    Post by Salve on Wed 18 Jun 2008 - 2:02

    I am adding this thread so that we have a place to discuss changes we would like to make the constitution (regardless if the Congressional Law Committee becomes active or not). Here is the Constitution as it stands today (I'll try to keep up with it as it changes), anyone with a change they'd like to make should post their suggestions in the new "The eNorwegian Constitution" section citing the full article they would like to fix, and their suggested version for us to discuss.
    The Constitution of eNorway wrote:

    A. Form of government, Religion and Freedom of speech.

    22.2 Votes that do not follow 22.1, urgent matters, shall not be used in other cases than time of war, or MPP (MutualProtectionPackt) with other countries and future wars. This vote must be open for at least six hours.

    note: I tried to organize this to make it as easily readable as possible, the forum limits how effectively I could lay it out however so I'm sorry if its still a little hard to break down. Sad

    Perhaps Dave, you could create a special section under the "Politics" group to move this too. That way for each suggestion someone could create a separate thread to discuss and/or vote and the "Party Discussion" section and the Constitutional discussion could remain more tidy this way.
