Quote from: Miestră Schivă, UrN on December 28, 2021, 09:15:21 PMOrgLaw V authorises "election laws", even though they're not mentioned in OrgLaw VII.3, so OrgLaw VII.3 cannot be a definitive list. Since OrgLaw IV both mandates that parties win seats, but that individuals hold seats and vote in the Cosa, the question of how parties assign seats to individuals must come under election laws. And that's excluding the whole question of whether OrgLaw VII.3 is a list of "permitted topics for legislation" or "topics on which only the Ziu may legislate, not the provinces". If you believe the former, it doesn't actually include (for example) criminal law. Half of El Lex would disappear overnight.

QuoteThe Seneschál shall have the right at his discretion to withdraw any legislative proposal from the Hopper and instruct the Secretary of State to treat it as a properly submitted bill.
QuoteThe Cosa shall elect one of its members to serve as Speaker of the Cosa (Talossan: el Túischac'h) for the upcoming term. The Speaker shall preside, direct and maintain order during Living Cosas and in other Cosa debates, in an unbiased fashion. Otherwise, his function will be to advise Members of the Cosa of appropriate decorum. He is considered the honourable President of the Cosâ and shall be awarded all due veneration when serving as such.
