Bill: Citizenship Act of 3946
Votes: This is an ordinary bill. It requires more yes votes than no votes. This bill will not pass any sooner than the deadline.
Voting deadline: June 3947
|PURPOSE: Whereas the Ministerial Court has deemed qualifying exams as a condition of citizenship, for those born in Kafuristan or to Kafuristan parents, amounts to disenfranchisement of native born Kafuris, thus calling for a change in law. |
Section 1. Qualifying Exams.
All persons not born in and naturalized within the borders of Kafuristan or where Kafuristan has jurisdiction, including but not limited to the premises of a Kafuristan military base or embassy, or born to Kafuri citizens are required to take a basic exam to prove that they have met the requirements of citizenship as expressed by law and have basic knowledge of their rights and duties as citizens of Kafuristan.
Section 2. Agency Authority.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs shall administer the test and shall promulgate reasonable rules and regulations by decree with regard to the exam.
Section 3. Appeal.
If an applicant for citizenship finds that the Agency has acted arbitrarily or capriciously, the applicant may appeal to the Ministerial Court which shall grant a hearing at their discretion.
Section 4. Applicability.
This Law shall not applied to natural born citizens of Kafuristan and shall not be construed as nullifying exams taken and passed prior to the enactment of this law.
Section 4. Repeal and Severability.
Sections 1-4 shall be codified separately in the Unified RP Law Code and repeal of this law shall require 2/3 vote. If any changes or repeals occur with regard to the Articles attached other than Sections 1-4 those changes do not affect Sections 1-4. Sections 1-4 is to be construed as a separate RP Law and not an in-game law.
Proposal[?] to change Government policy concerning granting citizenship.
Old value:: Citizenship is gained by passing a qualifying exam.
Current: Citizenship is granted to all nationals.
Proposed: Citizenship is granted to all nationals.

IC: "Thubat cannot support any legislation in this vein which will not at least guarantee that the Majatran language is an option in which to take the test. We oppose."
