Format of the World Congress

Postby cm9777 » Sat Jun 02, 2018 11:20 am

The World Congress is Particracy's equivalent of the United Nations.

Representatives of all national governments and political parties/groups/organisations may participate in discussions at its General Assembly. However, the governing authority of the World Congress is the Security Council, which may pass official resolutions with the support of at least 4 of its members. The Security Council is composed of Permanent Members and four Non-Permanent Members.

The General-Secretary of the World Congress is responsible for chairing General Assembly and Security Council meetings, and is elected by the Security Council.

Members of the Security Council will be represented either by their Head of Government or a representative nominated by their Head of Government. A player controlling a Head of Government may opt to nominate another player to role-play the nation's representative at the Security Council.

All nations are entitled to take part in the process of nominating the Non-Permanent Members, which they can do using the relevant game mechanic law options.


Security Council elections

The Great Powers as determined by the Military and Economic Rankings are the Permanent Members of the Security Council. The current Great Powers are Dorvik, Istalia, Kazulia, and Vanuku.

The Non-Permanent Members of the Security Council are elected by the nations in the game. Using the relevant game mechanic law options, ALL nations may nominate one nation on ALL FOUR candidate lists to the position of Non-Permanent Member. Within three days of the first day of each real-life month, a Moderator will simulate the elections, awarding each seat to the nation which received the highest number of nominations. In the case of a tie, the Permanent Members will decide which nation wins the seat.

If a Permanent Member has the highest number of nominations, the seat is awarded to the next runner up.

A Non-Permanent Member can have a maximum of two consecutive terms, after which it is not eligible for immediate re-election. If the retiring Member has the highest number of nominations, the seat is awarded to the next runner up.

The candidate lists for each seat are as follows...

Seat A (Artania candidates): Aloria, Beluzia, Darnussia, Dorvik, Dundorf, Endralon, Hawu Mumenhes, Hobrazia, Keymon, Kirlawa, Kundrati, Luthori, Malivia, Rutania.
Seat B (Majatra candidates): Badara, Barmenia, Beiteynu, Cildania, Cobura, Deltaria, Istalia, Jakania, Jelbania, Kafuristan, Kalopia, Pontesi, Selucia, Solentia , Vanuku, Zardugal.
Seat C (Seleya candidates): Aldegar, Alduria, Baltusia, Gaduridos, Indrala, Kalistan, Kanjor, Likatonia, Lodamun, Mordusia, Rildanor, Saridan, Tukarali, Valruzia.
Seat D (Dovani, Keris & Macon candidates): Dankuk, Davostan, Dolgaria, Egelion, Hulstria, Hutori, Kazulia, Lourenne, New Endralon, Sekowo, Talmoria, Telamon, Trigunia, Vorona.

Security Council Resolutions

Both Permanent and Non-Permanent Members have the right to introduce and vote on Security Council Resolutions.

In order for a resolution to pass it must have the support of at least four Members, and none of the Permanent Members voting against it. If any Permanent Member votes against the resolution the resolution is defeated, irrespective of the total number of votes in favor.

Security Council Resolutions are binding.

General Assembly Resolutions

Any member of the General Assembly or the Security Council can propose a General Assembly Resolution. The proposal should be at most 3 sentences long and must include at least 2 voting variables.

The Resolution must receive the endorsement of five additional nations before it can be voted on.

The Head of Government or a representative nominated by the Head of Government can support a General Assembly Resolution on behalf of their nation. Third World Nations, NGOs, and opposition political parties cannot propose or support Resolutions.

Once a Resolution has received the necessary number of endorsements any Member of the Security Council or presiding officer can post the proposal in the Final Draft Approval thread, and Moderation will introduce the Resolution as a new law in the game system. Moderation reserves the right to refuse to implement Resolutions as laws.

If the Resolution garners a plurality of yes votes from the 58 nations within a month, the Resolution is considered adopted, and Moderation will remove it from the list of in-game laws.

General Assembly Resolutions are not binding but merely recommendations. However the Security Council may choose to enforce General Assembly Resolutions through binding Security Council Resolutions.
