|Executive Order of 12 August 2015|
|Procedures for Transferring of the World Assembly Delegacy of the Social Liberal Union to Another Lawfully Entitled State|
|Date signed||12 August 2015|
Normandy and Picardy,
WHEREAS, the the term of office of the current World Assembly Delegate, Anaaxes, will be ending soon.
WHEREAS, the NationStates game mechanics allow any state who has the most World Assembly endorsements to hold the regional delegacy, regardless if whether or not they are lawfully entitled to hold the position under the governing laws of the Social Liberal Union.
WHEREAS, the defense and security of the Social Liberal Union is the responsibility of the regional government under Article 11, Section 1 of the Constitution.
WHEREAS, the Constitution of the Social Liberal Union does place basic restrictions on any non-lawfully entitled regional delegate during the delegacy transition period, it would be conducive to the best interests of the security of our region to minimize the time that any non-lawfully entitled regional delegate may hold the delegacy, and by extent, the inherent risks associated with these potential situations.
WHEREAS, it is important that a lawfully entitled delegate assumes power as soon as possible, in order to more easily execute in-game policy actions, preserve a positive public image of the delegacy, and for regional security purposes.
NOW, THEREFORE, by virtue of the authority vested in us, the duly elected Cabinet of the Social Liberal Union, by Article 7, Section 5 of the Constitution our region, it is HEREBY ORDERED as follows:
- 1. All member states of the Social Liberal Union who are also members of the World Assembly should endorse the lawfully entitled delegate (which will be publicly announced via forum posting, regional message board posting, telegram, and world factbook entry posting) as soon as possible.
- 2. Once the lawfully entitled delegate is the second-most endorsed state in the Social Liberal Union, the state with the most endorsements shall temporarily resign from the World Assembly or temporarily vacate the region until the next large, site-wide NationStates update occurs and is completed.
- 3. States should refrain from revoking their endorsements to the former delegate (or other state with the most endorsements in the region who is not the lawfully entitled delegate) until the the lawfully entitled delegate is the second-most endorsed state in the Social Liberal Union.
WE FURTHER DIRECT, that as soon as hereafter possible, this Executive Order be filed with the Office of the Speaker of the Union for proper archiving, and that widespread publicity and notice be given of this Executive Order.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF I, Anaaxes, have hereunto set my hand this 12th day of August, in the year 2015, and do declare under penalty of perjury, that this Executive Order has been passed by at least a simple majority of the members of the Cabinet of the Social Liberal Union, as required by the Constitution.
