Noble Colleagues of the 2nd Legislature
The sense of duty calls and the time has come for this legislature to take its first steps towards what is expected of it.
Without further ado, I call my noble colleagues to decide on the most important agendas of this first moment, which are:
1- We must deliberate and elect a president of this House;
2- We must deliberate and elect a new Imperial Chancellor;
3- We must deliberate on the creation of the Internal Statute of this House;
4- We must deliberate on the guidelines of this House.
For all of this to happen, however, it is necessary to have the First Ordinary Session of the House of Representatives, in compliance with Article 90 of the Imperial Constitution of Karnia-Ruthenia. It is extremely important for everyone to be aware of this article and others about the competence of this House in the Imperial Diet, as well as our entire Imperial Constitution.
We need to deliberate on the presidency of this House. Beyond the natural prestige that the position holds, it must be a choice beyond vanity. May him be an active, available person and, above all, have the virtues of leadership to lead this House toward the fulfillment of its goals in this Imperial Diet.
We need to deliberate on the Imperial Chancellor. It is a position of importance and responsibility and we must point out criteria for this choice, although it shall be done in the future, because in this first moment, we must observe the current situation of rescue of Politics in the Empire, except, of course, attending the minimum necessary for this choice to be within the quality criteria expected of us, as well as meeting the necessary anti-formalism at this first moment, so that people who think they are qualified for such position can fully invest in a candidacy.
We need to deliberate on the Statute that will ultimately govern the activities of this House not only in this legislature but in others. It is an old and unreached longing for this code to come out of the paper and it is up to us - why should it not be? - to be responsible for this further legal achievement of the Empire. There are certainly a wide range of possibilities for this to happen, naturally, through much dialogue and action, allied with other Houses and public organs of the Empire.
Finally, we need to deliberate action guidelines. For this to occur without major obstacles and for normality and flow in the activities of this House, I suggest the creation of a schedule. A planning that serves as a guide for semiannual actions (to be defined), so that everyone can define their own agenda and satisfactorily fulfill this mandate, as well as to avoid inertia before the Karno-Ruthenian eyes that put so much hope in our legislature.
I therefore suggest to my fellow members a deadline of one week from this Monday noon, 08/12/19, which may be postponed for another week until next Monday noon, 08/18/19, for exceptional reasons justified, in order to set a date in accordance with the possibility of all my fellow members for the First Ordinary Session to finally take place.
I am at the disposal of the noble colleagues for any questions and/or possible inquiries, and I look forward to the welcoming and subsequent acclamation of this suggestion which I leave you for now.
For the Constitution and for our people!
Duke of Daugavia, Duke of Taxus
