    Campaign Announcement

    Some might say Mal's post was initially answered at the level of substance it has, others might beg to differ, all the things some say can be so confusing. Some others including yours truly might just say, have a nice campaign!

    Request for Review: The Court's Illegal Review of an RA Proposal

    Thanks for that decision. With this the saga comes to an end and the power of the court has been clarified for future reference.

    Request for Review

    Thank you for the decision, this should clarify a lot. Is there an indication when the court expects to rule on the request by Sillystring that now needs to be decided on?

    Now that a fresh THO has been appointed, is it possible to get an indication when a decision maybe expected?

    The delegate would now have to appoint a fresh THO it seems.

    Appointment of THO

    In the R4R that has been pending for some time and was the subject of a recent motion to recall the appointed THO's, one of the appointed THO's has vacated his office due to inactivity. Pursuant to: Section 3.2: Appointment of Hearing Officers 4. A conflict of interest occurs when a Justice or...

    Recall THO's

    Has one of the THO's been here since the message in the court thread? Are they even aware of all this? Could an administrator perhaps say if any of them have been here recently? I havent voted yet on the recall, for now I'm inclined to the benefit of the doubt and the possibility a recall will...

    Recall THO's

    The law very clearly states that quorum is based on number of citizens voting in -at least one of three- votes, not that the lowest number of votes cast in one vote determines the quorum. I gather that the speaker also reads the law this way given the modified quorum posted.

    The Speaker's Desk

    I looked at the registry, but I have no idea how I can determine from it that a citizen voted in one of the last 3 legislative votes or how many citizens in total did that. It does mention a quorum of 12, but it appears that cannot be correct currently as we already know 46 citizens voted in one...

    The Speaker's Desk

    In the debate about recalling THO's it is now relevant what the quorum is to determine how many citizens are needed to force a vote. I think there is currently not a proper reading of the relevant law being applied. Quorum is determined by the number of citizens who voted in at least one of...

    Recall THO's

    Quorum is determined by the number of citizens who voted in at least one of the last three legislative votes. In one of the last 3 votes, the one about the security council amendment, there were 46 votes, so quorum cannot be less then 15 (when runding down) or 16 (rounding up). It is possible a...

    January 2018 Term Summary

    All the (in)action in the court has now spilled over to the RA it seems, so its quieter in the court :). Best of luck in your term Goyanes and may your succession plan indeed not be needed even though you have a fine AG in waiting.

    Recall THO's

    4 days to go until the vote begins and a good discussion may draw additional objections. To kick it of, a pro and con of the motion to recall: pro: its the only obvious way to do something as te court is missing its own timeline and there is no indication when something might happen con: we...

    Recall THO's

    The rules of the Regional Assembly do not seem to require a specific motion to vote, since the rules leave much discretion to the speaker the speaker could arguably request such a motion before scheduling a vote unless the speaker chooses to schedule the vote of his own volition as the rules...

    Gratz to every candidate for a nice campaign, and gratz to the winners, may you enjoy your terms. People are asking for a recount, is there any reason for that? No reason seems to be supplied with the requests.

    So by failing to deny it you confirm being a joke candidate running merely to discredit the regressive party?

    Falapatorius FTW

    Falapatorius, good to see you run, we need more cats with guitars as candidates. A few questions for you In your qualifications you mainly cite military experience outside TNP, do you think military experience is an essential prerequisite for a delegate or not and what are your reasons? Asking...

    Gladio for Delegate - January 2018!

    Gladio, good to see you expand your interest in the government of TNP. A question. You have been especially active in the military, the delegate is not primarily a warleader but typically more concerned with diplomacy, do you believe your military experience will help or hinder in this aspect...

    Mall! Good to see you running, your platform is, if nothing else, quite different from other candidates. A few questions if you will. Highly credible rumours have emerged that you are a double agent and your candidacy for delegate is a mockery designed to discredit the regressive party, what...

    Request for Review

    For the courts consideration, a quick brief in response to the briefs filed above. Was precedent upheld? While the court in the decision reviewed here acknowledged precedent I do not think it upheld it. The precedents cited by the court and me hold that court decisions are reviewable, indeed...

    The power of the court

    The big issue is that the court recently, in just a few lines of text, managed to declare itself unbound by any rule, and the reviewability or lack thereof of court decisions is only part of that. If the constitution were amended to make explicit that court decisions are subject to review, even...
