The AIN Parliament is the legislative branch of the AIN Government. In the Parliament, union-wide laws are proposed, debated and voted on. Each law must go through this process and to come into effect, it must pass by majority-rule.


History

The power of the Parliamentary services is entrusted to it by the Alliance of Independent Constitution. The AIN Constitution allows all members to participate and allows for the existence of the legislative branch of AIN.

Minister of Parliamentary Services

The Minister of Parliamentary Services oversees the process of the bills and discussion to ensure all people have a say and to help assist if necessary.

Laws

Proposals

For a new law to be voted, discussed and/or passed, the proposal (or bill) must be proposed in the Legislative Assembly. A proposal is a formal introduction to the bill and possibly a new law. This is where all of the basic information is given. After the proposal is made, the bill makes its way to discussions (Also in the Legislative Assembly).

Discussion

After the initial proposal the bill moves to the next phase in the Parliamentary system, the discussion. The discussion is when all the little details are discussed and comprises are made. The discussion is usually the longest process of the bill's life. The discussions occur in the same place as the proposal, the Legislative Assembly. When all discussions are finished the bill goes into the final phase of the Parliamentary system, the Senate.

Voting

After the discussions take place the bill continues to the final phase of the Parliamentary system, the Senate. Here all nations are allowed to vote on the final draft of the bill. Majority-rule decides if the bill should become a law, return to discussions, or fail and not become ratified.

Rights

All Full and Associate Member are allowed to vote only ONCE for each law. This is to ensure that not country can gain to much power (Examples: dependencies or role-play nations).

Choices

The Parliamentary system allows the voter (country) to decide from three choices. The three choices are:

  • Yes - meaning, I want to ratify this law and my country obeys to follow it.
  • No - meaning, I do NOT want to ratify and my country will only obey to follow it if it passes in the Senate.
  • Abstain - meaning, you have no opinion on the matter.

Members are encouraged to vote as soon as possible to help shorten the process of ratifying a bill.
