I think Article 85 of the Constitution makes it so that the Electoral Commission would have to enforce its provisions:
The Election Commission shall be a permanent body that shall prepare, supervise, direct and verify all aspects that have to do with elections and referenda and shall declare their results

Though this would also make the bill itself unconstitutional, as it specifies the creation of a new body for this purpose.

Then it'll be an amendment. Around 40k would be nice, given the median income is probably around 20k.

We should also not give a specific value for the salary of MP's, given that inflation is a thing.

Unless, of course, someone thinks the government can somehow keep inflation consistently at 0% forever.

What's "the legislative bill"?

Also, question to the Speaker, can bills be amended by the author after submission?

Seeing as how I set the precedent that you can't just change a bill once it's brought to a reading, no.

But if it would be ok with the community, I can add an extra motion that would table an amendment for us to vote on before the bill is voted on ut totum
