General Assembly (The Leftist Assembly)
|Membership||7 Members (inc. Speaker)|
The General Assembly is the legislative branch of The Leftist Assembly. It consists of seven members (known as MGAs).
Each MGA's term lasts for three months, with elections commencing at the start of March, June, September and December.
This body proposes and votes on new laws and amendments to existing laws as per the Legislative Process Act.
Upon its founding, the region functioned with a multi-party system. This system was complicated and details were often disputed between editors and interpreters. Essentially, candidates were nominated to different positions by their party. Once these were elected, an additional vote was held to determine the number of seats each party received out of the total 100 in the General Assembly. Rather than there being 100 individual nations each representing their party, each party would put forward a single stance on each legislation. For example, the 1st General Assembly required any two parties to vote for a piece of legislation to pass it. In late August 2016, the members of the region democratically chose to change the government to an independent system in the form of a 9-member council, as proposed by Llorens.
The Legal Standard Act was proposed by Llorens in the 5th General Assembly and passed by referendum, 18-3, on 21 May 2017. As per its changes, the positions of Chief Justice, First Justice and Second Justice, held at the time by New Lonopolian Empire, Rathfarnham and Llorens respectively, were each renamed to Justice and given equal voting power on all legal proceedings of the Ministry of Law.
Secretary voting power
The Equal Vote Act was proposed by Llorens in the 6th General Assembly and passed by referendum, 18-3, on 18 July 2017. As per its changes, the Secretary was stripped of their power to change the required vote to pass a bill if they were not in favour of it and instead established standard requirements for all bills to be passed, irrespective of the Secretary's approval of it. These changes would not have affected any bills ever previously passed by the General Assembly.
Minister of Immigration and Customs
The Legislature Reduction Act was proposed by Llorens in the 6th General Assembly and passed by referendum, 12-5, on 25 July 2017. As per its changes, the Minister of Immigration and Customs was merged into the Minister of Foreign Affairs as of the September 2017 election. As a result, the number of members of the General Assembly fell from nine to eight, but did not alter the vote threshold to pass bills.
Minister of Defence
The Military Removal Act was proposed by Llorens in the 7th General Assembly and passed by referendum, 20-4, on 25 October 2017. As per its changes, the Minister of Defence was abolished due to lack of Leftist Defence Force participation, despite every effort to do so over the existence of the region. As a result, the threshold to pass bills was reduced to four votes from seven total members.
The Judicial Separation Act was proposed by Llorens in the 7th General Assembly and passed by referendum, 19-1, on 6 November 2017. As per its changes, the General Assembly would then consist of the Secretary, Prime Minister, and 5 Senators, with the Justices being nominated and approved by the Secretary in a separate Supreme Court, and Ministers being appointed at will by the Secretary. The size of the General Assembly and the threshold to pass bills were unaffected by the change.
The new Constitution and Code of Laws was proposed by Llorens in the 11th General Assembly and passed by referendum, 28-1, on 26 September 2018. As per its changes, amendments to the Constitution require a two-thirds majority in a referendum to be passed.
The Separate Cabinet legislative package was proposed by Greylyn, Llorens, and Uan aa Boa in the 14th General Assembly, with a referendum passing 43-1 on 2 August 2019, and two subsequent statute law amendments passed by the General Assembly, 7-0. As per its changes, the Secretary and Prime Minister ceased to be members of the General Assembly, supplementing this with an increase in Members of the General Assembly - renamed from Senators - to 7. It is also implemented the position of Speaker to assume the organisational role of the Secretary within the General Assembly, which is to be internally elected from amongst the Members of the General Assembly. This made the executive and legislative branches entirely distinct, where the General Assembly has previously performed many of the functions of the Cabinet.
