Pursuant to Lex.H.1, I am required to begin preparations for a State Opening of the Ziu. Unfortunately, parts of the agenda are a little moot, as I imagine the Seneschal will want to name a Cabinet in short order instead of waiting around for a State Opening. The Seneschal himself has also already been officially appointed, though he could still be sworn in as a formality.

However, unlike the previous term, this time we have the option of taking advantage of the H.1 provision combining a State Opening and a Living Cosă: we'd have the King swear in the Seneschal, the Seneschal outlining his programme, the Opposition rebutting, and debate and voting taking place on the First Clark.

Thoughts? Opinions?

I remember when the new Seneschal had to telephone the King and recite the oath in Talossan. When it was my turn, I had a now disgraced former Secretary of State help me by writing the oath out phonetically so I could speak Talossan and swear on a copy of The Loom of Language. I miss some of those more quirky rituals we used to have.

I downloaded an e-book of The Loom Of Language for my swearing in!

To be clear -- the Government should make up their mind about what exactly they want to happen, since I can't compel anyone to attend, and most of the ceremony is centered around the Seneschal.

I will be happy to conduct the proceedings and to facilitate the scheduling of the event, but I can't do much more. Whether the agenda includes a swearing-in, and/or a Cabinet announcement, and/or a Speech from the Throne, and/or a rebuttal from the Opposition, etc., is not up to me.
