First, may you extend section 6(a)'s exemption for unpaid taxes to all unpaid government debts, including tax penalties and fines? Second, will you drop the term " res judicata effect" and replace it with "preclusive effect"? There's no need to be showy, Ambassador. :p "I a...

OOC: I don't see any need for them but I'm not wildly opposed either. To be honest, I prefer to do the polishing of the text as the last step, and first of all take care of the substance of the issue, so I'll circle back to them if this approaches some final draft stage. Ooc: I would be the most en...

It's purely a nonexistent role. No one is obliged to recognize Kuriko, even as a mere figurehead. @SP: wasn't there a Secretariat of some sort appointed to enforce the rules? Besides, everyone knows that Murray the Evil Skull is the True Leader of the Festering Snakepit. Nobody else comes close to ...

That's not creative, that's just noncompliance. No, noncompliance, is simply saying I'm not gonna. Creative noncompliance is coming up with creative (and I use that terms loosely), ways of noncompliance without actually violating the "law." In this case, compliance is quite impossible bas...

OOC: Welcome to the GA! I suggest you read the FAQs, as well as the Rules and General Advice Compendium! It may help clear up your confusion. There is no Head GA person. The GA is shockingly egalitarian like that.

Strongly, without a doubt, AGAINST. This proposal is badly written and does not argue its case well. When they use grammar as a reason to not vote for your legislation, then they must not have any legitimate reasons, and you therefore have won. "No, ambassador. It means that the delegation too...

Civil Rights was a rename of an existing category and not a new creation. That's why. The resolutions were still voted on as Human Rights.
