It is my
privilege to announce reopening of parliament, taking place in TWC Parliament. If you are interested in throwing your hat in the ring, please telegram me privately on your intent to serve His Imperial Highness and His Government.
Being a parliamentarian has many privileges, such as: writing laws and bills for our region, passing legislation, amending and repealing our constitution if deemed necessary, and
being apart of something new. The technicalities and fine print is included in Article III of our newly ratified constitution.
THE THIRD CONSTITUTION of THE WOLF CLAN
We the People of The Wolf Clan do declare a region that is accepting of all nations seen fit in the eyes of the Eternal Emperor, . We dedicate ourselves to the proposition that all nations have an equal voice that pertains not to their size nor creed, and that one nation does not always hold all the answers; that we must move together in hand-in-hand to weather whatever may be thrown at us. Henceforth, the Alpha Wolf Second Constitution is hereby rendered null and void.
ARTICLE I | Hierarchy
Eternal Emperor, Alphonse Heinrich von Wolfhart II, shall serve as the Head of State and Government of The Wolf Clan. They are the source of all executive, legislative and judicial authority and as such can exercise said authority however they deem necessary, including the right to be exempt from having judicial proceedings levied against them. For clarity, the term "Emperor" is the in-region term used to describe the Founder. The use of the term "Founder" (as well as "Seated Founder") will be made redundant upon the passing of this constitution.
Imperial Family will consist of persons appointed by the Eternal Emperor and the Tribunal at their discretion, its members being those who have the full trust of the Eternal Emperor. Its collective responsibility is to advise or assist the Eternal Emperor in his imperial and noble duties, whether it be military, domestic, or other matters that are relevant to the state.
Imperial Chancellor is the democratically elected Head of State and Government and as such is the primary public figure of the The Wolf Clan. As an Executive Officer, the Imperial Chancellor has similar authorities to the Emperor. However, in practice, these are undertaken by the Imperial Chancellor as the elected half of the Executive.
