    PROPOSAL- Omnibus Charter Amendment III

    We always vote on specific regions before establishing embassies with them, and you know that well, so you can veto any region that you consider as not-"leftist friendly" individually, and in that case I am certain that you won't be the only one to do so. It is wrong to exclude all of them, because of a "not all".

    PROPOSAL- Omnibus Charter Amendment III

    I disagree with this, but not strongly. I believe that the WAD should have the ability to vote for the next councilors, since the time of vote is basically a time of transition, and especially to be able to vote for themselves if they want to be re-elected. Plus, this was passed not that long ago, so it will be hard to change it again. Other than that, I am supportive for any other amendment, except maybe the one that fuses the CoI and the CoA to a single position, about which I haven't decided yet. I think that when it comes to moderation, the initial thought behind this should be discussed too, and how they are going to blend with another potential change: that of the change of the position of the WAD. That was what I had in mind when I first discussed this with WAU and the rest of the Council. In a few words: The three Councilors remain the same, no change in those positions. Combining CoI and CoA up for a discussion, though. The Comrade WA Delegate loses all extra authorities and is the WAD of the region only. Participates in every thing that is WA related (voting, approving proposals, ILC, etc.). This will grant the WAD the ability to become more involved in all those. Helping comrades to write proposals could be a good addition to the role too. All in all, the WAD becomes just a WAD and the position loses the ''first among equals'' part. This will increase the presence of the region in the WA and will decentralize the council (not that this last one is necessarily a positive). The WAD will not change every term and will be voted always once (discussable). The WAD can be impeached, however. Two-three moderators are added. They will have border control authority only. They will moderate our discord server (be able to ban and kick). Moderators will put up for a vote everything the WAD does currently. Not sure if they should be voted each term or get the WAD treatment I suggested above. I am not saying that this is a better alternative to what WAU proposed, or that I necessarily support this, but I am putting this here as an alternative to be discussed. And I know I could have presented all this much better, but I would prefer to hear some thoughts first. @World Anarchic Union Can you add the following amendment to the proposals too? I mentioned it, but you either missed it or it slept your mind:
  3. This passes with 7 votes in favor and 2 absentions.
  4. I am conveying this message by comrade Frits, since they are unable to post here.
  5. We are not interested in being the "greatest region" in any coalition. We are seeking relations of solidarity and camaraderie with fellow leftist regions, not to manipulate and use them by dragging into coalitions we are the most powerful members. That being said, we are not the most powerful region in the ILC. That's a big misunderstanding. Each region has one vote, no matter the population. ILC is not the European Parliament. And we are not in competition with TCB. We have embassies with them, they are our allies. Keep in mind that by vetoing, you are making this vote fail. That means this proposal will fail because you think that we want to be the most powerful region among allies, which couldn't be further from the truth.
  6. I am proposing that we construct embassies with the region Mariner Trench. Mariner Trench is the home region of the MT Army, a leading military in the fight against fascism in NationStates. For those that don't know, the MT Army has cooperated along with The Red Fleet, in which many comrades of The Internationale are members, countless times to bring down in-game fash. Tags that make constructing embassies with them possible: Anti-Fascist tag Common Embassies: Antifa, The MT Army Significant part from the WFE: "With the rise of the Nazi party/Fascism, the world full of hate, oppression and intolerance, we took the responsibility upon ourselves to try and better the lives of those worldwide. Our entire population was converted into mighty Anti-Nazi warriors, The MT Army is known as the godfathers of Anti-Nazi/Fascism military action on NationStates."
  7. Comrade Members of The Internationale, I would you to consider me when you are voting for the regional Councilor of External Affairs. I am about to present my plans for the term in a summary, but first, a few words should be said about myself and my time in the region we all comprise and love, The Internationale. The Question of Who Residency: approximately 2 years, as also my time in NationStates. Residency in Other Regions: North Korea, The Federation of Anarchist Communes Positions Held: Comrade WA Delegate for three consecutive terms, during which I often took up matters of external affairs. It should also be said that it was at the time of those terms that after a careful examination and consideration of the then current embassies by me and Aarnonia (CoEA back then), a clearance of many came, something that would later shape the embassies our region holds, until now. Other Positions: Admiral of the TRF Sankara Squadron (currently). What do I like most in NS: Bashing fash, interregional politics. Favorite Food: Pastitsio The Question of Why So... why would I nominate myself for the position of the Councilor of External Affairs now? The answer is two-fold: firstly, I am at a stage of transition in real life, the biggest yet, and I have plenty of time to commit, and secondly, there have been a few signs that this can be a very busy and interesting term for the CoEA and for the General Council in general. The... this is not actually a Question (?) Having established my case so far by means of possession, whether that is having experience, time, presence on and familiarity with allied regions, I would like to move to the important part: my plans for the coming term. The Question of What °Re-looking at current embassies. °Searching at regions to build embassies with. °Daily look at whether embassy requests exist, and putting them up for a vote if they do and are in line with what is said on the regional Charter. °Presentation of regions we are voting for. °Possible amendment proposal for the embassy section. °Communication with allies, especially NSLeft regions, and attempt for interregional (NSLeft) activities, along with the Councilor of Activities. °Informing members with the use of RMB posts about foreign affairs matters, and NS players in general with the use of dispatches and, possibly, forum gameplay posts, all that by cooperating with the Councilor of Information. °Furthering our relations with The Communist Bloc, with which we recently built embassies, and shaping our attitude away from what once where a skeptical look at them. °Cooperating with the WA Delegate and briefing them, as also the General Council, on all significant matters of external affairs. Having a presence in the Council and discussing all general matters that come up. Good luck to all other candidates! Always happy to see elections for every position at a region that is sadly usually politically inactive.
  8. Not really. I was a new sailor at The Red Fleet when I ran for Delegate and retained the position for three whole terms... There is no problem, you will continue being a member after you have finished being the WAD. And the WAD is not the easiest position in the region.
  9. I would like to nominate myself for the position of the Councilor of External Affairs.

    Welcome!
  11. I vetoed too, but for another reason. Firstly, the region has an Egalitarian and not a Feminist tag. Also, it withholds from having a Communist tag, although it has a Socialist tag, which doesn't make that much sense to me, especially for a region named Soviet Democracy. And secondly, and most importantly, it is stated on its WFE: That is concerning. Do they also mean that capitalists and fascists are allowed to be on that region?
  12. The NewsStand is not a region like any other, it is an advertising space. I don't know why it has the Capitalist tag (probably has to do with the founder's personal views), but there really aren't any alternatives if you want to promote stuff like dispatches, newspapers, polls, etc. in the game from what I know of. I believe that this that the above part of the Charter was not written in order to be followed that strictly and that embassy-collecting regions and regions like the NewsStand ought to be excluded, as it is usually done in this cases, even if it is not explicitly stated so in our regional law. I mean, I think I was the one that proposed the amendment that added the Capitalist tag to this part and this is what I had in mind when writing it. I don't believe we should lose the opportunity to build ties with an actually leftist region because of such a typicality. By the way, this poll should have been locked 5 days ago. Not that this is supposed to mean anything at that point, only an observation.
