Apparently the Seneschal is on vacation and thus presumably unavailable

No, the Seneschál is available and enthusiastic for all his official duties re: the State Opening; he only delegated the legislative stuff to me.

I'm free up until Friday, then I'm busy with my Sister-in-law's wedding for the next week.  Though not sure what role I play, since the State Opening is in the Cosa, yes?

Lexh H.1.1. states that the Speakers of both Houses of the Ziu conduct the State Opening, but I don't know what that really entails. Based purely on the letter of the law, the only people who have speaking roles during that event are the King, the Seneschal and the Leader of the Opposition. So I have no idea what you and I are supposed to do in the meantime.



So then, when's the best time for the King, the Seneschal and the (Deputy) Leader of the Opposition to all meet up in a livestream?

I am still very much around. I took a few days to go on a short holiday while interviewing with a University, but I am fully on board with moving forward. The issue is getting the King and the Op Leader together with me to officially get the ball rolling.

Try accusing His Majesty of letting AD have the keys to the Monarchy, he'll turn up here in 10 seconds :D

His Majesty relays that he has been in touch with the Seneschal regarding the Speech from the Throne, and he looks forward to the event.

But when is the best time to *have* the event? I need to know what everyone's schedule looks like to pick a date that isnt extremely awkward for one or more people involved.

I can confirm that the Seneschál is putting the finishing touches on the Speech with His Maj's input.

Where are we on this? Have the issues with the speech been resolved? Is scheduling happening?

He's had it for over a week. If he doesn't do something by Monday morning, I'll be forced to take the issue to the UC.

No scheduling has happened yet. The relevant parties are seemingly refusing to get back to me.

This is very strange, because I've just had Cabinet Minister T. Roibeardescù tell me: "who are we waiting for? I thought we where waiting for the túischac'h?...At least I am as I offered to help set up the twitch live link... But haven't had a whiff of contact since he suggested it"

This is turning into a clusterfudge because the law does not actually say who should be organising the State Opening of the Cosa. I call upon the King, the Seneschál and the chairs of the Houses of the Ziu (or however many of them can be contacted) to get together right now and make a plan for moving forward

EDIT: I am an idiot, the Law says clearly: "The event shall be organized and conducted by the Speakers of both Houses of the Ziu"

The issue for me is that I can‘t schedule if I don‘t know on which days and times everyone is available. The whole event would be rather pointless if one or more of the people involved couldn‘t show up.

It‘s true that I haven‘t had contact with S:reu Rôibeardescù since, but as I see it, without knowing when the event even is (or can be), I didnt have anything to contact him about.
