The Talossa Shall Choose Its King Amendment
« Reply #45 on: March 17, 2021, 05:04:52 PM »
BE IT ENACTED by the Ziu, for the endorsement of the nation in referendum, that the Organic Law, Section II.3, shall be replaced in its entirety as follows:

Quote
1. The King of Talossa shall be chosen by a Convocation of:
  • eight MCs, chosen by the parties represented in the Cosa in proportion to their Cosa seats;
  • all Senators;
  • the Seneschál;
  • all Justices of the UC;
  • all provincial heads of government;
  • all officers of the Royal Civil Service;
  • all Talossans who have been a citizen for at least ten years
2. Every member of the Convocation shall have one vote. All the discussions of the Convocation will be open, but its votes shall be by secret ballot.

3. The Convocation shall be chaired by the Senior Judge of the CpI, or in their absence the next available CpI judge in order of seniority, unless the Convocation decides differently.

4. The Convocation shall assemble upon the 6th anniversary of a King acceding to the Throne, or at any time that there is no King.

5. The candidate who receives the expressed support of 2/3 of the Convocation shall immediately receive the title of "Heir Presumptive".

6. Upon the demise, abdication, or removal from the Throne of the King, the Heir Presumptive shall swear an oath promising to protect and uphold the Organic Law of Talossa and the rights of all its citizens, and thereupon become King of Talossa. If there is no Heir Presumptive, the Uppermost Cort shall be a Council of Regency until an Heir Presumptive is chosen.

7. Unless the King of Talossa is chosen as their own Heir Presumptive, they shall be deemed to have abdicated upon having served in that role for 7 years.

As of when the Convocation is called, I assume - Ián, have I got this right?
