The Office's Analysis

A distinguished member of the NS sports community, Kelssek is nominated by the at-vote resolution "Commend Kelssek" to receive official recognition by the Security Council in the form of a shiny commendation badge. In addition to their impressive contributions to sports roleplaying, their historical involvement in the WA and its predecessor and work for The East Pacific, as convincingly presented by the proposal in a clear and structured manner, finally leave no doubt that the nominee is deserving of such. Thus, OWL recommends a vote FOR the at-vote resolution, "Commend Kelssek".

Tepertopia wrote:I'm not familiar with the nominee, but the accomplishments laid out in the proposal seem really extensive and are enough to merit a commendation, I think. Of course the proposal could have expanded a bit more on some points, as others here have pointed out, but I won't oppose it just for that.

Ceni wrote:Full support. As a former Olympics host, I can personally attest that hosting one is OOCly is a massive undertaking. Hosting multiple... well, it's a blessing that Kelssek is still around in the community.

Electrum is another known participant in the NS Sports scene and has authored SC resolutions such as "Commend Audioslavia" and "Commend Valanora" for their sporting achievements. On the forum thread for Commend Kelssek, they wrote:

Electrum wrote:I wholeheartedly endorse this resolution. Kelssek is a well deserved candidate for commendation. Kelssek's been instrumental in advancing human rights in the World Assembly, with two of its resolutions, the 'Convention Against Genocide' and 'Refugee Protection', forming an integral part of WA/GA law. Hosting four Olympic games also shows an insane amount of dedication -- I can attest to how difficult this achievement is -- many dozens of hours over a short period of time goes into hosting one of these, let alone four of them.

HumanSanity is a legislator in The South Pacific and a SC author. On The South Pacific WA Voting Centre's RMB, they wrote:

HumanSanity wrote:The more I think about it, I just become more skeptical of this proposal. I think the nominee is deserving but the writing is haphazard in some parts and generally lacks narrative and structure. It falls more than almost any other resolution for the "time to list some things" flaw, as it essentially consists of a list of UN/GA resolutions, a list of sports hostings and sports victories, and then a very very sloppy laundry list of every position they ever held in TEP. At no point does it create narrative and the TEP section in particular is sloppy, as positions do not equate to contributions. I'm against with a "go back, fix the writing, and try again" theme

Qvait is a legislator of The South Pacific. On The South Pacific WA Voting Centre's RMB they wrote:

Qvait wrote:While the proposed resolution has a somewhat solid RP component to it, the list of positions the subject has served as part of The East Pacific with no mention of their particular relevance undercuts the strength of the proposal. The author could improve the proposal by elaborating on the relevance of the subject serving in these positions or omitting the section entirely.

Praeceps is a citizen in The North Pacific and the author (and co-author) of several Security Council resolutions. On The North Pacific's forums, they wrote:

Praeceps wrote:Against. While the RP part may be commendable, the list of contributions to TEP are incredibly unspecific—it is just a list of positions—and should either be removed or explained further. I doubt that the list of positions needs to be included to make the case that the nominee is commendable.

NEW GENERAL ASSEMBLY PROPOSAL DISCUSSION AND VOTE
---------------------------------------------------

Title: Prohibition of Honor Killings
Author: Greater Cesnica
Purpose: To ban any practice of killing an individual for violating an honor code, and ensure such get treated equally to "normal" cases of killing in criminal proceedings.

Greater Cesnica wrote:The General Assembly,

Believing that honor killings are especially heinous acts that represent a fundamental betrayal of the trust afforded by a person to their relatives and members of their community,

Appalled that such atrocities occur in this current day and age, often with the tacit or explicit support of local authorities,

Seeking to put an end to this vile practice,

Hereby:

  1. Defines an "honor killing" as the killing of an individual by or at the direction of a relative or any other member of a community due to the perception that the individual has brought shame or dishonor upon their family or community, or has otherwise violated an honor code.

  2. Prohibits:

    1. honor killings from being carried out in any member state and;

    2. the belief that the victim of a killing brought shame or dishonor upon their family or community, or otherwise violated an honor code, from being permitted as a part of:

      1. any defense in criminal proceedings questioning whether such a killing was a criminal offense or;

      2. any argument to reduce the severity of criminal penalties potentially applicable to the perpetrator(s) of such a killing.

  3. Requires member states to prosecute alleged honor killings with at least the same severity as they prosecute other forms of alleged unlawful killings.

Honor killings ar part of a culture that we ourselves might adopt. It shows one's love for their nation and could even have spiritual ties. The definition could also be abused.

It's simply appalling that we have honor killings occuring in the world today. There are certain grievous acts that are simply universally evil and the World Assembly has a moral obligation to outlaw such acts when national legislatures fail. I ask that all WA members of the South Pacific vote For so that honor killings can be eliminated.
