Be it instituted within the Conclave of The East Pacific, under the authority of the Office of Viceroy, the following rules shall constitute a direction to the same.

[size=150]Administrative Rules on Acting Viceroyship[/size][/b]

A- ESTABLISHING TRUANCY

A.1- Truancy shall be declared when the Office or Duties of the Viceroy are unfulfilled -by inactivity or lapse of term- for longer than seven days from the time of a required action, such as the end of a voting period. Any Arbiter, Vizier, the Delegate, or the Provost may declare truancy.

A.2- Truancy shall only occur if the Viceroy and most recently appointed Viceroy Designee allow the Truancy Term to elapse without action, notice of intention to refuse action, or an equivalent notification.

B- TRUANT PROCEDURES

B.1- When Truancy is declared, the remaining Arbiters must assume the functions of the Office of the Viceroy by consensus. Any Arbiter may act as the Acting Viceroy, so long as no other Arbiter objects within 24 hours of the action.

B.2- Should an Arbiter object to the action, this immediately triggers a Viceroy election. The objecting Arbiter shall invite the Provost of the Magisterium to officiate a voting period of 48 hours, or until all Arbiters have voted, in the public area of Conclave to determine a Viceroy.

B.3- If no Arbiter is willing to stand for election as Viceroy, the Provost shall request the Delegate to appoint a Viceroy Pro Tempore to conduct the duties of the Office of Viceroy. This office holds no vote, may not opine on matters of the law, and must conduct the procedural business of the Conclave. The Pro Tempore may be replaced by the Delegate at any time.

B.4- The Viceroy Pro Tempore must seek to conduct Viceroy elections until a Viceroy is elected.

C- LIMITATION

C.1- At any time during Truancy Procedures, the Viceroy or the Viceroy Designee may reestablish procedural control unless the Conclave has chosen another Viceroy.

Viceroy’s Memorandum on Citizenship

Per the Concordat amendment passed on 2/14/2020, the Grand Vizier shall be taking over all citizenship duties formerly held by the Viceroy.

Per the wishes of the Grand Vizier, the Viceroy Memoranda relating to citizenship shall be updated to reflect this change of roles. The VMs shall eventually be transported to the Praesidium. After being transported, these original memoranda will be formally voided.
