World Assembly Act (2017)
An Act to enhance Europeia's ability to influence the deliberations of the World Assembly.

Short Title

(1) This Act may be cited as the World Assembly Act (2017).

Office of the World Assembly Delegate

(2) The President shall nominate an individual to the Office of the World Assembly Delegate whenever that office is vacant. Nominees under this section shall require Senate confirmation with a greater than 2/3rd's majority in order to take office.

(2a) Once confirmed by the Senate, the World Assembly Delegate shall serve indefinitely, subject to Senate reconfirmation every 180 days on the motion of the President. The President may choose to nominate another individual to the office instead of seeking reconfirmation of the incumbent World Assembly Delegate, upon which the previous World Assembly Delegate shall cease to be in office.

(3) The World Assembly Delegate shall designate a nation they own ("designated Delegate Nation") to hold the in-game position of WA Delegate of Europeia.

(4) The Office of the World Assembly Delegate shall be declared vacant if any of the following occurs:

1. The incumbent resigns.
2. The incumbent is not a citizen.
3. The designated Delegate Nation of the incumbent does not reside in Europeia.
4. The designated Delegate Nation of the incumbent is not a member of the World Assembly.
5. The incumbent has been inactive in completing their duties as World Assembly Delegate for a period of time longer than 14 days, without lodging a formal leave of absence.
6. The incumbent is removed from office by a request to such effect that is initiated by the President or a Senator and achieves two-thirds absolute majority support in the Senate.
7. The Senate declines to reconfirm the incumbent delegate.

Office of the Deputy Delegate

(5) The World Assembly Delegate shall appoint a citizen to the Office of the Deputy Delegate whenever that office is vacant.

(6) The Deputy Delegate shall designate a nation they own (“designated Deputy Delegate Nation”) to hold the second most in-game World Assembly endorsements in Europeia.

(7) The Office of the Deputy Delegate shall be deemed vacant if any of the following occurs:
1. The incumbent resigns.
2. The incumbent is not a citizen.
3. The designated Deputy Delegate Nation of the incumbent does not reside in Europeia.
4. The designated Deputy Delegate Nation of the incumbent is not a member of the World Assembly.
5. The incumbent is removed from office by either the World Assembly Delegate or the President.

(8) The Deputy Delegate shall assume the powers and duties of the Office of the World Assembly Delegate whenever that office is vacant, and for the duration of the vacancy.

Maintenance of Gameside Powers

(9) The World Assembly Delegate or the Founder may, at their discretion, take such steps as they reasonably deem necessary to ensure that the designated Delegate nation maintains the in-game position of WA Delegate of Europeia, including but not limited to establishing endorsement caps and ejecting nations from the region that threaten the designated Delegate Nation's position. Similar steps may be taken to ensure the designated Deputy Delegate Nation maintains the second most in-game World Assembly endorsements in Europeia.

(10) Upon confirmation of a new World Assembly Delegate and their accumulation on the designated Delegate Nation of sufficient endorsements as to have the second highest or highest quantity in the region, the preceding designated Delegate nation shall resign from the World Assembly so as to lose all of their endorsements. Rejoining the World Assembly afterwards is permitted.

(11) The President and their deputies shall be responsible for the formulation and execution of policies relating to World Assembly affairs, included but not limited to compilation and distribution of information, development of educational material, organization and training of personnel, and diplomatic obligations.

World Assembly Affairs

(12) The World Assembly Delegate shall exercise the Designated Nation’s vote on World Assembly resolutions to reflect the directive of the President or a designated deputy, or if there is no such directive, to reflect the views of the Europeian citizenry as made known to the Delegate.

(13) Should anyone other than the Deputy Delegate or Delegate hold the gameside Delegate Nation, they are required to: (a) not exercise the Delegate Nation's vote on World Assembly resolutions in contradiction to the provisions of this Act for the World Assembly Delegate, and (b) not exercise any gameside powers other than voting on resolutions that are specific to the Delegate Nation except as directed by the President or a Supreme Chancellor.

Repeals

(14) The World Assembly Act (2012) is repealed in its entirety.
