This amendment to our Forum Constitution is hereby introduced by Senator King on September 27th, 2004.

The definition of an organized party as stated in Article V, Clause 6 shall be changed to:

Any political party with a party platform and either five members or an elected official is to be considered an organized political party.

I find the current recognition of an organized political party in our Constitution unfair, considering that the AFIP and AFLP parties are quite organized and powerful despite having less than ten members.

What have the AFLP done that makes them organized and powerful?

Well the AFIP is organized and powerful. The LP is just organized...

The and/or part makes this a little ambiguous.

In my opinion:

A party platform is definitely required in all cases.

Either having  5 members, or an elected official, should be the second requirement.  I think that federally appointed offices- cabinet, Supreme Court- should also qualify as an elected official.

The AFIP is powerful but not organized, and the AFLP is organized but not powerful.

I have nothing against this amendment.

Is a week considered five or seven days by the Senate? If its five, any debate should stop in 13 minutes.

A week has traditionally been considered to be seven days.  There are several Constitution provisions unrelated to the Senatorial Procedure Act that give seven days as the time required to do things.  I suppose we could even use a French Revolutionary Calendar week of ten days, but today is 3 October 2004, not 12 Vendemiaire 213, so probably not.

Alright, it has been 7 days. PPT Harry or Vice President Andrew needs to open up a vote.

Voting is closed. Since the majority of the Senate voted this vote passes 4 to 2.
