VOTING - AMENDMENT TO ARTICLE III OF THE CONSTITUTION
Alright Senators, let's vote on this. I don't know what each of you think is the best course to take now, but I support the amendment and will therefore be voting 'aye'. If the amendment passes with the requisite 2/3 majority, the Electoral Commissioner will have to decide what action to take regarding the ratification referendum.
RESULTS - AMENDMENT TO ARTICLE III OF THE CONSTITUTION
I hereby declare the amendment to Article III of the Constitution has passed the Senate by a vote of 6-0. It is now in the remit of the Electoral Commissioner Rhyssua to organise the ratification referendum.
OPENING DEBATE - EXECUTIVE BRANCH IMPEACHABLE OFFENCES ACT
I have rewritten the Impeachable Offences Act to address the concerns raised by Senators and MPs regarding the crossovers with the Legal Code. I hope this new, simpler bill will be acceptable to Congress as I believe it is important to properly establish the offences for which a Prime Minister or President may be impeached.
I like how this bill takes all the good from the act of the Impeachable Offenses Act and gets rid of all of the bad.
I support the bill and as my colleagues has already stated it provide a much clearer 'distinction' and solves the contradiction with the legal codes.
It's definitely much better than the previous Impeachable Offences Act. My one problem is that a violation of NS rules is (usually) not a big deal, and impeaching someone because mods intervened would seem a bit harsh. Perhaps the bill could be amended to include repeated violations of NS rules, rather than leaving it to just one awkward violation.
I have no issues with this new bill and wholly support it.
Senators, please note that I have made an amendment to Article II of the bill. We will begin voting soon.
VOTING - EXECUTIVE BRANCH IMPEACHABLE OFFENCES ACT
We will now vote on this bill. Please note the changes made to Article II since the bill was first brought to the floor.
My own vote is of course 'aye'.
