This is the official Mideast Assembly Thread.  Once all 3 members have taken their oath of office, business can begin Smiley

Shouldn't this be in the government board, not the elections board?

You're right; if a Mod could move this, that'd be great.

The Voting Booth thread seems more appropriate to me. Afterall, the Pacific's legislature thread is in the Voting Booth thread and one would assume that would be the perfect place to place such a thread. Anyway, that's my opinion and you Mideasterners can do whatever the hell you want.

For those wondering about our role. Here is the relevant constitutional parts.

Section 1: The Assembly

   1. The legislative power in the Mideast shall be vested in the Mideastern Assembly, henceforth to be referred to as "the Assembly".
   2. The Assembly shall be composed of five members, each of whom must be resident in the Mideast Region.
   3. The Assembly shall have the power to elect its own officers and judge the qualifications of its members.
   4. Elections to the Assembly shall begin between 0001 Eastern Standard Time on the third Thursday of each odd-numbered month and 0001 Eastern Standard Time on the first Friday thereafter, and shall conclude exactly 72 hours after beginning.
   5. The method of election shall be PR-STV, as specified in Sections 4 to 17 of the Atlasian Proportional Representation Act (F.L. 21-2).
   6. Any vacancies in the Assembly shall be filled through gubernatorial appointment.
   7. Legislation may be proposed by any citizen of the Mideast.
   8. For legislation to be passed by the Assembly, it must be voted for by a majority of those voting.
   9. Three days after the passage of a bill by the Assembly, it shall become law unless the Governor calls for a Proposition on the bill.
  10. Within three days of the failure of a bill in the Assembly, the Governor may call for a Proposition on the bill. This right may only be used once in the Governor's term.

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

What do you fellows feel should be our first order of business?  Is there any truly pressing need in terms of Mideast governance, should we in fact elect a speaker, or should we focus in on needs of the citizens like tax laws and such?

Great, looks like this farce can now get down to business.  Good thing we have an incompetent governor who appointed who a treasonist Frenchie who can't get elected to anything else instead of the Fmr. Gov. who rightfully should have this seat

Well, adding qualified judge who supports regional rights and is not a treasonist Frenchie did not seem to fit with that last statement Smiley

He isn't a treasonist no matter what everyone else says about him.  However he is a frenchie. Smiley

He left Atlasia and formed his own country.  How would you define treason?

DWDL, if you care so much, move back to the Mideast.  Otherwise, shut the hell up.

It will have no effect at all on anything; instead of being in the Assembly, Inks is elected Governor.  Stop bitching, and take the better result.

My conduct will have no effect on the national results for the RPP, and you know it.  However, you've decided to bitch and whine, simply because you dislike me and Hashemite.

Rather than all this squabbling can we get back to the task at hand?
