Baltisk City (B.C.)- Two nights ago, the “General-Secretary’s Role (A.B 651 2016)” was posted on the new DRCC Assembly Legislative Site. According to the CSP Chairman and Minister of Health and Transportation Henry Chester, “It is time for the General-Secretary’s power to be limited. A life time term and no elections until the first founder is dead or resigns, will destroy DRCC. And due to recent international affairs it is a great example of how this is clearly faulty.”
In Article 2, Section 5: “The Executive Branch” (b) it says,
The founder of the Democratic Republic of Cinnamon Creek is automatically the General-Secretary until death or voluntary resignation; after resignation or death a new General-Secretary will be the current Commissioner of DRCC at that time; after four years, the Assembly will open a vote to the People of DRCC and they will have a public vote to install a new General-Secretary.
“I strongly support His Excellency General-Secretary Dallin Langford however if DRCC is a republic and live to it’s democratic standards it is essential to not let a person have a life time term and ruin the country in the works. Let’s [bluntly] cut the crap and allow elections and change this amendment.” says Commissioner Jessica Clarkston.
The proposed amendment does the following:
- Impeachment Articles will be added to Section 5.
- The General-Secretary’s Office can be subject to Assembly investigations.
- General-Secretary elections will be held on July 2016, after Assembly Representative elections.
- A General-Secretary election system will be created and announced before April.
- The founder will no longer have a life-time term.
- A General-Secretary’s term will be one year, starting August after the election.
- The set term limit will be eight terms.
General-Secretary Langford has unavailable to comment on the proposed amendment.
“A life time term and no elections until the first founder is dead or resigns, will destroy DRCC. And due to recent international affairs it is a great example of how this is clearly faulty.”
-Henry Chester, Minister of Health and Transportation
