Amends the requirement in CRL 16 and states citizens in the WA can file a waiver to the FAD to unendorse them for the duration of a resolution if their vote is counter to the delegate’s, to ensure the citizen’s vote is not nullified by the delegates opposition. The FAD will have the discretion to tell the citizen to unendorse others if it would threaten their delegacy, and if the delegacy is at risk the FAD can reject the waiver.
The LCN Government Declares:
- Recognizes: the importance of the Foreign Affairs Director as the WA Delegate
- Understands: the need for enforcing the endorsement of the Foreign Affairs Director above all others
- Signifies: the need for WA member autonomy in their viewpoints
- Realizes: a citizen’s vote counter to the delegate is deemed null and void due to the structure of the WA
- Authorizes: the use of an Official Citizenry Opposition Vote Waiver which allows citizens in the WA member to unendorse the the FAD if they disagree
- Recognizes: the threat to the delegacy with unendorsements and therefore
- Allows: the Foreign Affairs Director the discretion to instruct the citizen to unendorse other members that could threaten their delegacy before unendorsing the FAD
- Approves: the Foreign Affairs Director’s ability to reject the waiver only on the grounds of significant threat to their delegacy even after the endorsement reallocation instructions
