I would like to thank the Magisterium for their swift appointments. We now fit the constitutional requirements of having an odd number of Arbiters on the Court.

The Magisterium of the Sovereign East Pacific,
Represented by the Provost,



Notifies the Conclave of the following Magisterial Resolution:

Resolution to Enact Instant-Runoff Voting
 


Endeavoring to insure that the Delegate is always elected by a majority of those voting in an election

Observing that the Instant-Runoff Voting Act was vetoed by the Delegate who stated, "The Instant-Runoff Voting Act is infringing on the Concordat, which has not received proper consideration in my view."

Finding The Concordat specifies in Article A, Section 2, "The Delegate of the East Pacific shall be a Citizen elected for a term of four months by a vote of the Citizens of the East Pacific."

Noting that the Condordat does not provide specifics on the voting process, nor instructions on a run-off process if no candidate receives the majority of the vote.


Therefore, be it resolved:

The Magisterium hereby calls upon the Conclave to implement Instant-Runoff Voting for Delegate Elections, which shall be outlined below:

(A) Ballots in The East Pacific should include all candidates running in an election - allowing voters to rank each candidate preferentially from 1 (most favored candidate) to their least favored candidates.

(B) Voters may choose to not rank any number of candidates.

(C) The first preferences of all voters should be counted.

(D) If a candidate holds a majority (50%+) over said votes, that candidate has won the election.

(E) If no candidate holds a majority over said votes, then the candidate with the least amount of votes shall be eliminated and any voters who voted for this candidate shall have their vote transferred to their next preferred candidate (as indicated by their ballot).

(F) This aforementioned process shall be repeated until a candidate holds a majority.

(G) In the event that any candidates, with the least amount of votes, tie - they will all be eliminated.

The Magisterium has granted honorable Citizenship to A mean old man.

Yes, he is. And now he can always be a citizen. This started as a response to some discussion about changing the requirements for citizenship. And some Magisters wanted to make sure AMOM was protected. So they used their power to give him honorary citizenship. Yes, it is redundant. And it is consistent with the Concordat.
