    That sounds like a solution. If you want to prevent people from even posting foreseeably pointless VonCs in the first place, you could add a provision, that anyone posting a VonC that fails to gather...

  11. [ABANDONED] Re: [VoNC] A Vote of No Confidence of the Consul (Akar)

    I think Garb is quite correct in his assessment of what Akar's behaviour up to a few days ago looked like. It has cooled down since then, though.
  12. [ABANDONED] Re: [Amendment] Curial officer VoNC Section I art II and section II art III

    In fact not. A vote of no confidence can just be tabled in most parliamentary democracies if enough members of parliament support it. The point about allegations misses the purpose of the intended...
  13. [ABANDONED] Re: [AMENDMENT]Curial officer VoNC Section I art II and section II art III

    By that argument we shouldn't have elections in the first place, hence the argument is void - if we followed it we'd have to disestablish the entire Curia which is self-contradictory.
  14. [ABANDONED] Re: [AMENDMENT]Curial officer VoNC Section I art II and section II art III

    The electoral body expressing its lack of confidence in whom they have previously legitimised with their vote is not political prosecution, but ordinary democratic practice.
  15. [ABANDONED] Re: [AMENDMENT]Curial officer VoNC Section I art II and section II art III

    And the requirement for a 2/3 majority would quickly put a stop to such nonsense - if you even get three supporters for such a flimsy proposal.
