Positions Restrictions Reform Act (2021)

An Act that reforms and sets out new positions restrictions for government members.

______________________________________________________________

PREAMBLE

Noting, that many legislators have been forced to resign to give up their positions in Congress to become Ministers,
Believing, that this system is outdated and does not work anymore,
Understanding, that as time goes on, this will only hurt Thaecia by taking away competent legislators,

Congress hereby agrees,

Section I - The following positions of government shall be defined as Restricted Positions:

  • a. The Presidency

  • b. The Prime Ministership

  • c. Justice

  • d. Electoral Commissioner

Section II - Government members in Restricted Positions cannot hold any other position in government, this includes:

  • a. The Presidency

  • b. The Prime Ministership

  • c. Justice

  • d. Electoral Commissioner

  • e. Any Ministerial Position

  • f. Senator or Member of Parliament

Section I - Ministers must not hold any other Ministerial Position. They shall, however, be permitted to hold lesser ministerial roles in other ministries.

Section II - Within Congress, Senators and Members of Parliament may only be allowed to hold their positions and extensions to them, this means roles such as Chamber Leadership. They may not be allowed to occupy more than one of these extended positions within Congress at once.

Section III - Secretary positions shall not be considered as Restricted. They shall be exempt from restrictions placed on other positions in this Act, and will face no restrictions on that position. However they shall still face other restrictions placed out in this bill on other offices.

Section I - The passage of this bill hereby constitutes the repeal of L.R.004 Positions Restriction Act.

Read dispatch

We have now begun debate on the Positions Restrictions Reform Act.

Full support we have a massive brain drain that this will mitigate. Also for those who wish to amend: this will delay the bill too long when it is needed now before an election. Amendments can wait.

So. I had an amendment lined up to be added to this and debated, however, this bill is "long overdue" and "needs to be passed ASAP", so once again, we have been asked to push through this and "amend it later."

I do not agree with the idea that we can allow Ministers to also be Speaker or Chair of the respective chamber, and yes, I will be drafting an amendment for it AFTER this is passed.

You're welcome
