General Assembly Resolution At Vote
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
General Assembly Resolution #419 “Voting Equality for Freed Inmates” (Category: Furtherment of Democracy; Strength: Mild) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.
Deeply concerned that Article 3 of GA#419 prevents this august body from requiring member states to guarantee "enfranchisement for individuals under incarceration," hence implicitly allowing them to deny such individuals the right to partake in the democratic process as equals, and
Noting that this state of affairs cannot change, nor can a new resolution which strikes down all barriers to voting based merely on one's prior or current imprisonment be enacted, unless GA#419 is repealed...
The General Assembly hereby repeals GA#419 "Voting Equality for Freed Inmates."
Debate this resolution in the General Assembly forum.
