State Opening of the Cosă
« on: October 10, 2020, 01:56:58 PM »
Estimadăs és estimats citaxhiens, I draw your attention to El Lexhatx H.1.1.:

Quote
Following each General Election there shall be an official “State Opening of the Cosa”. At the start of the State Opening, the new Seneschal shall be sworn to the office publicly. The Sovereign shall then deliver a speech outlining the Government's legislative agenda and programme for the term. The contents of this speech shall be communicated to the Sovereign by the incoming Seneschal prior to the ceremony. The Seneschal may announce Cabinet Ministers during the ceremony. A rebuttal by the Leader of the Opposition shall follow, which may be followed by a further rebuttal by the leader of the third largest party. When practical, the State Opening shall be held during an official Living Cosă for which food and drink shall be featured and as many Talossans as possible shall be invited to attend.

I have the pleasure to announce that the Government has set the State Opening of the 55th Cosă for Saturday, October 24th, TST. We hope to confirm that date with His Majesty, and we are working on the content of the Speech from the Throne.

Questions? Comments?

Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Talossa. Ask me anything.

Assuming it happens, then absolutely great. I think it would be best to have the Speech from the Throne, the Reply from the Leader of the Opposition, and the announcement of Ministers live.

... if the King doesn't turn up, will I have to give the Speech myself?

Acting as regent for the crown, I can confirm that I will be able to appear at this event.  Please communicate the necessary speech as soon as possible, so that I can record it in a decent fashion.
