Message=== From the Desk of the President of the Commonwealth ===

To Parliament:

I hereby put forth this legislation for your consideration. It is time for the Commonwealth to do away with the role I currently hold, and combine the roles of Chancellor and President. Doing so will streamline operations of the nation and make it clear to our partners and friends abroad who is actually in charge at any given time. Just today I received a message from our neighbors in Davostan that should have been received by the Chancellor and Foreign Minister. My colleague from Acton, Mr. Jim O'Neill, will address that message during Chancellor's questions.

I want to stress that I do not believe that this a Monarchist-Republican issue. It is a good governance issue. Therefore, I propose that the First Minister - the name I believe best fits the combination of the Chancellor and President - carry the honorifics related to the Presidency until such a time in which we resolve the Republican/Royalist issue.

I hope my colleagues from both parties will see the immediate benefit of this change and vote for this Constitutional Amendment.

Sophia Morris
President of the Commonwealth

MessageOOC: you guys do understand that this gives the fist minister the power to veto any cabinet proposal

ToDebating the Constitutional Amendment 1: Consolidation of Chancellor and Presidential Roles
MessageOOC: No it doesn't. It means its impossible to have a Cabinet without the FM in it. In the Proposals you can still list another Party as HoG (basically a Deputy) and on the Cabinet page itself itll list the other person... but this legally means the FM is head of the Cabinet.

MessageOOC: Basically what will happen is there will only be 1 election, instead of both a presidential and parliamentary election, the head of state will be whoever is given the role of First Minister

MessageOOC: Umm no... the FM as far as I'm aware still gets an election of their own. They are just guaranteed a seat at the Cabinet table

MessageMr. Speaker,

There is still time for the Consumers or USPH to change their votes. I will remind both of them that doing so resolves a number of the issues parties have suggested they have with the "Republic at last" bill.

Leader of the New Liberals
