An Act

to Address the Collapse of Republican Government in Fremont
and Provide for the Reconstruction of the Same
Section 1 (Title)
i. The long title of this Act shall be the "Reconstruction of Fremont Act of 2017." It may be cited as the "Reconstruction Act" or "ROFA."

Section 2 (Emergency Powers)
WHEREAS, it has recently become evident that the former Governor of Fremont, having failed to make any post on the Atlas Forum for a period exceeding ten days, has been removed from office according to the provisions of the Fremont Constitution;

WHEREAS, the most senior member of the Legislative Assembly has failed to make any post for an equivalent period;

WHEREAS, all other offices of the Regional Government have fallen vacant;

WHEREAS, it can therefore be concluded that the Fremont Region is without a functioning government, as no person or body has any legal or Constitutional claim to office in that Region;

WHEREAS, it is the moral and Constitutional duty of the Congress of the Republic of Atlasia to secure for each Region a stable and republican government;

i. The Congress of the Republic of Atlasia hereby empowers the President of the Republic to appoint an Emergency Commissioner for Fremont, who shall be empowered to organize the election of a democratic government for that Region under the existing Constitution thereof.
ii. The Emergency Commissioner shall be the acting chief executive of Fremont until such time as the new Governor and Legislative Assembly shall have been fairly and democratically elected, with all the rights and privileges bestowed upon the Governor of Fremont by the Constitution thereof; but the elections described in this Act shall begin no more than seven (7) days following the appointment of the Commissioner by the President.
iii. The new Governor and Assembly having been inaugurated, the Emergency Commissioner will continue to oversee progress in the Region until such time as the President shall see fit to dismiss them.
iv. If, at any point following the elections prescribed in Section 2.i of this Act, one of the officers thus elected shall have made no post on the Regional Government board for a period exceeding ten days (240 hours), said officer shall be relieved of his duties under the Fremont Constitution. The Emergency Commissioner will then have the authority to organize a special election to fill the vacated post.

Section 3 (Recommendation for Constitutional Reform)
i. The present Fremont Constitution being a contradictory, ungrammatical, and byzantine document almost completely unintelligible to the rational mind, it is the recommendation of the Congress of the Republic of Atlasia that the first order of business for the Governor and Assembly elected under Section 2 of this Act be to draft a new Constitution for the Fremont Region, so as to establish the Government of that Region upon a sustainable and democratic foundation.

Desperate times, etc. etc.

Western Sahara Recognition Act


The Atlasian government hereby recognizes the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic as the rightful owner of the territory it claims.

The Atlasian government also invites the Sahrawi government to set up an embassy in Nyman, and looks to do the same when the SADP acquires the territory it rightfully owns.

Amending The Federal Electoral Act Act

Section 14 of the Federal Electoral Act shall be amended as follows:

Quote
Federal Activity and Political Party Requirements
1. A person may become a registered Federal voter if they have attained fifteen posts and have been registered at the forum for at least 7 days. Regions can optionally set the requirements lower. In registration, the person must state their name and State of fantasy residence; In addition, they may optionally state a political affiliation.
2. All those persons who have registered to vote 7 days (168 hours) before the commencement of the election posted at least 10 times in the 8 weeks (56 days) prior to the commencement of an election shall be defined as active for the purposes of that election. If a voter changes their state of registration within the 7 days, the state from which they were originally registered shall be the state from which their vote is cast.
3. Persons may only change their State of registration from one region to another region once every 180 days. Changes in State of registration may only occur within a single region every 72 hours.
4. Any registered voter who fails to vote in elections for six months for which they are qualified to vote shall have their registration no longer considered valid. The said voter may only be deregistered after missing three federal elections, not including runoffs and special elections. A vote in a special election or runoff will be counted towards activity the same as a vote in a regular federal election. This clause shall not be construed to deny a forum user the right to register anew.
5. Anyone who has cast an absentee ballot shall be regarded as an active voter, provided he or she fulfills the definition by the time the election commences for which the ballot was cast, of an "active voter"; However, the post containing the ballot shall not count towards the total number of required posts.
6. Any political party of three or more members is considered to be an organized political party.

Me and dfw had this idea. We were at first just going to lower the post number, but changed it to regionalization. An interesting topic I'd like for us to discuss--I will try to get other interesting bills up in the next few days.
