Definition of Powers/Reinterpretation Act

Resolution Number: [1]


Establishing that the recent usage of the powers mentioned in Resolution 0 while necessary, have caused a great deal of controversy as to their interpretation. Establishing further that the root cause of the current crisis between the Aestorean Commonwealth of Ausitoria and the Republic of Inyursta is the lack of clearly delineated powers of both the Prime Minister and the Council.

Establishing further that Coalition Prime Minister Henry Kazpia has cited Resolution 0 as the source from which he derives his power, stating "the Prime Minister can maintain wide discretionary powers to carry out his duties without government complicated legislation".

Noting that these ill defined discretionary powers have served as the source of the ongoing disputes in the Council...

The Council hereby proposes Resolution 3 which endeavors to:

1. Delineate the powers of the Prime Minister and the IFC Council
2. Prevent further disputes over membership by placing any and all decisions on the matter within the hands of either the Council itself(wherein the expulsion of a member shall be put to a vote and require a simple majority to expel any member)
3. Establish circumstances under which a member of the Coalition maybe removed

Establishing that the Prime Minister under Resolution 3 shall have the power to submit legislation to the Council, call for votes on legislation in the absence of Speaker or his deputies, call sessions of the Council, and name members of the cabinet.

Noting that the Prime Minister shall not have the power to remove members of the coalition without due cause before submitting any expulsion proposals to the Council, shall not be able to remove members for any disagreements with the PM, shall not be able to remove members for abstaining or voting nay on resolutions, shall not remove members based upon past quarrels.

Establishing that the Council shall have the power to approve cabinet nominations, approve any expulsions by the Prime Minister or cabinet, approve any proposal for intervention or request for assistance etc. Further establishing that the Council shall hold the sole power to appoint or nominate the speaker as well as interpret Resolution 0, its subsequent amendments and the extent of the PM's powers.

Noting that members of the Council shall only be removed under the following circumstances:
1. Having governmental policies that conflict with the democratic values of the Coalition or enacting policies that promote discrimination of minorities.
2. Engaging in armed conflict with another member of the IFC.
3. Subverting the authority of the Council or abusing the power of an elected or Cabinet Position.
4. Supporting or assisting enemies of the IFC.
5. Engaging in treasonous acts or aiding and abetting opponents of the Coalition in cases of crisis or during times of war.

Further reiterating that the Council alone shall have the power to expel nations for the above violations.

Finally noting that the purpose of this resolution is not to limit the ability of the Prime Minister to govern, but rather to preserve the democratic values of the IFC as well as uphold its members personal rights.

Addendum: Adding that the Council shall as part of this Resolution reach a final decision upon the matter of the Republic of Inyursta's membership within the International Freedom Coalition, by a simple majority vote.

Signed,


[Arcturus Nile, Imperium of Aravea]

Environmental Conservation Act

Resolution Number: [2]


Understanding that the natural world and the wildlife it gives life to is one of our fastest diminishing resources, this resolution seeks to ensure greater voluntary cooperation between members of the IFC to help better protect sites of natural significance in their respective nations.


Section 1: International Protection Zones


a) Hereby calls for the willing and voluntary creation of international protection zones, also to be known as "Blue Zones" among member nations which are eligible for direct funding in order to police, protect and research necessary variables such as organic life, soil and water pH, chemical content, etc. by the donations allotted by signatory nations outlined in Section 1b.

These international protection zones will be selected and designated by member nations using the R6-A form.

b) Hereby calls for the creation of a seperate fund formed entirely of donations from willing nations. This fund will not be expected to take any extra money from the rest of the IFC budget nor will members be mandated or coerced into paying into this fund.

This fund will be created using donations outlined and granted by member nations using the form R6-B.


Section 2: Extradition Cooperation Clause


a) Hereby creates a specific-crime extradition treaty between voluntary signatory members to help better prosecute the illicit acts such as poaching, dumping and intentional poisoning of water or soil.

b) In the case of a criminal(s) whom the host nation should refuse to give up for any reason, this action will be allowed by the member nation provided the crimes levied against said criminal(s) by other affected nations be brought against them in the home nation.


Section 3: Clarification and Waiver


Defines signatory nations as nations who willingly choose to participate in this international effort.
In the immediate time frame a vote of "AYE" to this resolution will be considered a signature of approval, however if a nation wishes to vote in support of this motion but does not wish to sign they may clarify so with their vote.
In the future a new member shall be asked if they wish to sign this cooperation treaty shortly after joining the council.
A signatory nation may choose to exit from all duties outlined by this measure at any time.

Signed,


[Melissa Lorena de Vertrun Jimenez; Republiqua D'Inyursta]

Code: Select all
I, the delegate of [b][nation name][/b], hereby request to have the following sites listed as Blue Zones for international protection.
[b]Name of site(s):[/b]
[b]History&Description(s):[/b]

[b]Threatened or Endangered Species (if applicable):[/b]

Code: Select all

Rectification and Overhaul Act

Resolution Number: [4]


Growing tired at the continued inaction and bickering of the various factions in the Coalition Government and the Coalition itself,

The Council hereby:

1. Calls for an immediate suspension of the current IFC government and suspension of the Eighth IFC Summit.

2. Demands that a summit/convention to determine the course of the IFC be held immediately within the Imperium of Aravea, Kirishima, Shazbotdom, or Organized States.

3. Recognizes the need for a neutral party to head up the summit and therefore called upon the nations of Kirishima, Organized States, and Shazbotdom to act as arbiters in the discussions on the fate of the IFC. Should the aforementioned nations not partake of their requested role, they shall be substituted with candidates chosen by simple majority vote within the council. Furthermore the PM nor government shall have the power to appoint or nominate arbiters during this process.

4. Requests that a caretaker/steward government headed by Kirishima, Organized States, or the Empire of Muzztopia manage Coalition affairs until such a time as when new elections can be held.

Section 2

Furthermore during the summit the Council hereby calls for the complete review of the IFC charter by the aforementioned arbiters to interpret its true meaning as well as the extent of both Governmental and Council powers, while also hereby calling for:

1. The Creation of an independent IFC judiciary to investigate violations of the IFC charter and try violators. Said Judiciary will at its inception be composed of the three aforementioned arbiters. Following the conclusion of their terms, which shall be no more than two months, they shall be replaced by candidates elected via majority vote in the Council. Once again the PM or Government shall not have the power to nominate or appoint the members of the Judiciary.

2. For the creation of a new IFC Charter/Constitution consistent with the decree that shall be issued at the conclusion of the summit on what the IFC's new direction shall be.

3. Formally establishes the continued IFC membership of the Republic of Inyursta.

4. The Creation of a ruling executive council or triumvirate that will act as an extension of the Council's will.

Section 3

Finally as of this Resolution's passing the Council hereby decrees that:

1. Resolution 5 shall be rendered null and void, while Resolution 3 shall be reinstated for the duration of the IFC Charter/Constitutional Convention.

2. Should the ruling government not stand down following this act's passage they shall be expelled from the IFC for abuse of power and treason.

3. That the IFC Headquarters shall be moved from Musrum, Bratislav to a location to be determined by majority vote at the Constitutional Convention.

4. That the position of IFC Speaker shall henceforth be elected via majority vote in the Council.

5. That the positions of Deputy Speaker(s) shall henceforth be filled by candidates selected by the Speaker rather than the PM.

6. That the reigning government shall not interfere in the selection of the Speaker or endorse any particular candidate.

7. That all votes in the Council shall henceforth be decided by simple majority vote rather than a two-thirds majority.

8. Establishes a limited veto power for the Steward that will be capable of being overturned by a majority vote within the Council

9. That no binding legislation, decrees, or resolutions shall be adopted at the Eighth IFC Summit. Furthermore, this Council establishes that all future legislation following the Conclusion of the Constitutional Convention must be submitted to and passed by the Council.

10. Any attempt to circumvent Section 3 Clause 9 is to be viewed as treason and thus grounds for immediate dismissal from the Council.

Judicial Powers Act

Resolution Number: [5]


This Council,

Expanding on the ideas outlined in Section 2.1 of Resolution 4 separate from any political agenda, to isolate any said judiciary from legislation which may taint the lack of bias

Noting the absurd degree of infighting, power abuse, and sectionalism that passionate tempers and individual antics have wrought,

Yet recognizing this issue to be chiefly due to individual irresponsibility rather than issues inherent in the IFC

1. Creates a judiciary branch known as the 'Judicial Committee' which shall dispense just rulings and condemnations where warranted to resolve the immature and universally chaotic infighting which has led to such widespread disillusionment and a scourge of recent resignations

2. Proposes this committee consist of three level-headed and fair-minded individuals who can appropriately hear arguments and dispense consequences as per the values outlined in the IFC charter and the common standards of ethical behavior and constructive commentary; these individuals are prospectively to be the author, the representative from Flardania, and the representative of the URA. Being accountable to the people in very regard, these individuals can at any time be voted off the committee by a council supermajority for perceived bias in rulings or other corrupt activities slandering the equity of all those heard before the committee.

3. Subjects all member nations and all legislation to the purview of the said committee, which is ordered to treat each member fairly and hear at least a case and rebuttal in self-defense before prescribing a punishment. These punishments shall range from verbal warnings to temporary bans for exceptionally vitriolic, counterproductive, or repetitive infractions. The maximum length of expulsion shall be one month, as any permanent expulsions require a council vote.

4. Ensures that all proceedings by the committee shall be held in public on a separate thread, and prohibits any attempts to shield rulings or arguments from the general membership.

5. Invests in this committee the power of judicial review of legislation, if that legislation is seen as contrary to the principles of the alliance or is otherwise intended not for the prosperity of the coalition but for individual gain or vengeance

6. Members of the judiciary committee are prohibited from running for Prime Minister while serving on the committee, and the Prime Minister, Secretary General, or any alternate executive, is prohibited from joining the committee or tainting its lack of political or personal bias.

Judicial Powers and Constitutional Restoration Act

Resolution Number: [5a]


This Council,

Noting the absurd degree of infighting, power abuse, and sectionalism that passionate tempers have wrought,

Yet recognizing this issue to be chiefly due to individual antics rather than issues inherent in the IFC,

Therefore desirous of establishing a mechanism by which the Council may more easily hold to equal account the activities of members and ministers,


Hereby:

1. Directs the government to establish the 'Judicial Committee' which shall function as Supreme and Final Court below the ultimate judgment of the Council and above all courts created pursuant to Resolution 9 to dispense just rulings and condemnations where warranted to resolve the infighting which has led to such widespread disillusionment and various resignations over the past few months.

2. Proposes that this committee consist of three level-headed and fair-minded individuals who can appropriately hear arguments and dispense consequences as per the values outlined in the IFC charter and the common standards of ethical behavior and constructive commentary; composed originally of the representatives from Novo Wagondia, Flardania, and the URA. Being accountable to the people in every regard, these individuals can at any time be voted off the committee by a three-fifths majority in the council for perceived bias in rulings or other corrupt activities slandering the equity of all those heard before the committee.

3. Subjects all member nations and all legislation to the purview of the said committee, which is ordered to treat each member fairly and hear at least a case and rebuttal in self-defense before prescribing any punishment. These punishments shall range from verbal warnings to temporary suspensions for exceptionally vitriolic, counterproductive, or repetitive infractions; and the Committee may also move in the Council for the expulsion of members.

4. Ensures that all proceedings by the committee shall be held in public in a separated place, and prohibits any attempts to shield rulings or arguments from the general membership without the approval of the Council.

5. Establishes that the committee shall elect a President to preside of the committee, who shall be barred from holding any other positions in the International Freedom Coalition. All members of the judiciary committee are prohibited from running for Prime Minister while serving on the committee, and the Prime Minister, Secretary General, or any alternate leader of the executive government, is prohibited from joining the committee or tainting its lack of political or personal bias.

6. Emphasizes the ultimate supremacy of a majority-in-Council over all the aspects of government.

7. Encourages the government to commission an inquiry or inquiries into the loss of the members New Carloso, Inyursta, Brytene, and Aravea; to address the following questions:
(a) Why did the IFC lose those members? Was there a power vacuum?
(b) Were any actions committed which were in breach of the letter of the law or in breach of the spirit of the law? If interpretations were made, who has or exercised what interpretative powers?
(c) What limits remain on executive powers? Can the executive government function effectively as it is at present?
(d) What are the prospects for united action in the IFC? To what extent is unity desirable?
(e) What lessons can be learned and improvements to government structures made?

8. Appends to Resolution 0: Also establishes that the clauses of Resolution 0, as effectively holding Constitutional Importance, may not be overturned or rendered invalid unless explicitly stated; and that implicitly contradictory legislation should be struck down.

Condemnation of the Ardokian Government and Clarification Regarding Usage of Military Force in Space

Resolution Number: [6]


This resolution, if passed, hereby condemns the Ardokian Government for its false reporting of the true intention of its orbital platforms. False reporting of a satellite's true intentions and capabilities creates a legitimate barrier to the free and safe use of space for commercial and peaceful purposes, and indeed, has created the unfortunate situation seen on the International Stage. Additionally, this resolution hereby supports the use of Military force to defend interests in Orbit, particularly if it would in any way,

a) Minimize Collateral Damage
b) Support Joint I.F.C. Military Operations and the Military Operations of its members, particularly in situations wherein the National Security of a Nation is threatened by a foreign power
c) Support Concurrent Space Operations, carried out by Scientific Agencies (such as the O.S. Air Force Space Defense Force, the O.S. National Aerospace and Science Administration, or the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency)
d) Safeguard Commercial Space Flight (operated by organizations such as the Space Exploration Technologies Corporation, Blue Origin, Inc., or the United Launch Alliance)

Additionally, this resolution supports any future use of Military Force in Orbit if any of the above criteria are met. Additionally, as to mitigate future Space-based Defense Threats, this resolution proposes the creation of an I.F.C. Military Committee on Space, headed by a nominated Space Operations Officer/Senior Astronaut/Senior Extra-Orbital Pilot or Combat Systems Operator.

Signed,

Declaration of Hostilites against Ardoki

Resolution Number: [7]


This resolution hereby declares the actions of Ardoki belligerency status, and allows the International Freedom Coalition to use all resources available.
-

Section 2: Grievances


The Roskian Federation notes that the following actions are indeed considered hostile towards members of the International Freedom Coalition

Subsection 1:
The recent incident in which military equipment violated the low orbit airspace claimbed by a memberstate. This is a wholly unreasonable endeavor, one that all members need to consider.

Subsection 2:
Unreasonable hostilities and militarization against members of the International Freedom Coalition, who whooly have not provoked such an incident

Subsection 3:
The government of Ardoki wholly provides none or very little of the information we call for, including political, economic, and social freedoms.

Section 3: Declaration


This article passes a declaration of general hostilities between the International Freedom Coalition and Ardoki, who has done its best to thrust the idea of war into our court and has made it impossible to ignore any longer. There are members of the International Freedom Coalition who have total existantial threats by the current Ardokian government's existance, and an article would allow us to have a immediate attack in self defence.

Signed,

Mikihail Poresnkov, Roski

Declaration of Expulsion Of Ardoki

Resolution Number: [8]


This resolution hereby declares the immediate expulsion of the Ardokian Social Democratic Republic from the International Freedom Coalition.

Concerned with the inability for the current leadership of the IFC to address the concerns of this Body,

Astonished that Membership was granted for a Nation which has, in the past and most recently, shown that they are unwilling to negotiate at all with the International Community, including in turning over key members of their Government who has either issued or carried out horrific acts across the world.

Frustrated that by the looks of the Application, the Ardokian Social Democratic Republic seems to have just lied about many things that they have done and are wishing to 'sweep it under the rug' to better their position within the International Community. This is not limited to acts of Genocide and Mass Murder, mainly within Aanglandia, and the illegal shooting down of a Civilian Airliner under the guise that it would further the idea of 'Progressivism'.

Hereby, by order of the voting membership of the International Freedom Coalition, the unconditional Ejection of the Ardokian Social Democratic Republic from our glorious body.

Signed,

Concerned by the recent political instability within Ardoki,

Determined to act to ensure the creation of a proper free government, in the interests of the proper maintenance of stability and human rights,

12. The IFC Council otherwise directs the IFC government and IFC members to act to ensure that all persons who carry out any acts contrary to Universal Rights within Ardoki shall be prosecuted.

13. The IFC Council calls upon international observers to provide support for the operations of the temporary government.

Articles of Impeachement against the Prime Minister of the International Freedom Coalition

Resolution Number: [9-1]


=====Section One=====


The Roskian Federation hereby states the following list of grievances and ultimately reasons why the Prime Minister is no longer fit to be in any form of control over the alliance:
  • Repeatedly placing the International Freedom Coalition in many situations in which the alliance members are forced to chose sides, what the Prime Minister wants or the reality of the situation
  • Repeatedly placing the national interests of the Prime Minister's nation in front of the will of the International Freedom Coalition, taking a hard "join or die" approach
  • Repeatedly suppressing the interests of nations if they are not consistent with the Prime Minister's national interests
  • Forcing the International Freedom Coalition to accept a member with many recorded instances of hostility towards the alliance and individual members, under a promise to conform to the requirements of the International Freedom Coalition. This indicates that the Prime Minister has accepted a national application that was not consistent with the minimum requirements for entry.
  • Forcing the International Freedom Coalition to accept a member who has made the "promise" to conform to the International Freedom Coalition's Minimum Requirements, only to have the memberstates ignore the past times the same nationstate has made that claim and did not follow through.
  • Repeatedly bringing political instability to an alliance with common ideologies and a large international influence
  • Instead of solving the instances of grievances, the Prime Minister has instead opted for "alternative solutions", or, in essence, the opposite of what the memberstates of the International Freedom Coalition want, and instead what the Prime Minister wants.

=====Section Two=====


The International Freedom Coalition, upon the creation of this document, is not required to vote immediately for the removal of the Prime Minister from Office, but instead for the acceptance of the proceedings needed for impeachment. By voting for the document, you are not immediately counted as voting for the removal of the Prime Minister, but instead are voting for the ability to begin the impeachment cycle.

=====Section Three=====


The impeachement vote will require 50%+.5 of voters to successfully remove the Prime Minister from office. This 50%+.5 refers to the voting members, not to the population of the Organization as a whole.

Active memberstates of the International Freedom Coaltion will receive one entire vote, as they are the immediate nations who are offended by the actions and have to be around for post-impeachment. Understanding that the impact will affect nations who are observers of the International Freedom Coalition, all observer states who are registered at the creation of this document will recieve half of a vote.

=====Section Four=====


Legal Definitions
International Freedom Coalition: Refers to the military alliance of which this council sees over
Memberstate: Any current member who has joined the alliance, with exception towards Ardoki.
Prime Minister: The Current Prime Minister of Libraria and Ausitoria and the acting Prime Minister of the International Freedom Coalition
Prime Minister's Nation: Libraria and Ausitoria
Observer state: Versail, Central Kadigan, Thracia
Minimum Requirements: The access to basic freedoms by every day people.

Protection of Membership Status

Resolution Number: [0 10]


Observing that former regimes which have held the position of Prime Minister have used fluid and un-described interpretations of power to forcefully eject or suspend members who have caused serious opposition and democratic disruption of the Prime Minsiter's goals.

Concerned that this may become a trend amongst future leadership.

Understanding that the Council has legislative authority, not the Prime Minister.

Questioning what purpose granting the Prime Minister serves that legislative supremacy and the IFC's commitment to Freedom and Liberty.

Believing that the decision to eject or suspend a fully functioning member of the IFC is an issue which all members Council should decide, not just the one Prime Minister.

Hereby seeks to ensure that the position of Prime Minister cannot use ejection, suspension or the threat thereof to stifle debate, opposition and legislation by establishing that the IFC Council and only the IFC Council have the power to strip membership status from full members.


Section I: Defining Prime Minister's Authority



Section IA) This act hereby removes the ability and/or interpretation of ability of the Prime Minister to unilaterally eject or suspend full members.

Section IB) This act does not limit nor bar the Prime Minister from proposing legislation to have a member removed or voting upon legislation proposed to remove a member.


Section II: Defining Ejection Procedure



Section IIA) This act hereby codifies that members may only be ejected or suspended by a majority (>50%) vote of the Council.

Section IIB) This act sets the following precedents for ejection or suspension; including but not limited to:
- Hostile military action taken against another member
- Forceful or otherwise physical disruption of the council
- Failing to depose of or the rise of any internal ruling authority which supresses any number of human rights or civil and political liberties
- Participation in any event that contributes as war crimes or crimes against humanity
- Any other action deemed exceptionally heinous or in operation against the values of Freedom and Liberty


Section IIC) This act allows for but does not demand a trial period if requested by the member or members under threat of ejection or suspension in which evidence for and against their action or participation in any of the above illicit situations may be presented before their peers prior to the vote. This action can be invoked only if requested by the member in question or a short summary motion is passed by members of the Council.

Section I: Defining the State of Suspension


Section IA) This act defines the state of "Suspension" as a condition in which an IFC member is denied full organizational affiliation with the IFC, the right to vote on Council legislation, and the right to call upon the mutual protection of Coalition members.

Section IB) The State of Suspension shall be considered inherently transitory, and may only be inflicted upon a full IFC member (by written notification by the Prime Minster) as a measure leading imminently to a vote on the suspended member-state's expulsion.



Section II: Defining Prime Minister's Authority


Section IIA) This act hereby removes the ability and/or interpretation of ability of the Prime Minister to unilaterally eject full members.

Section IIB) This act does not limit nor bar the Prime Minister from suspending a full member, provided the suspension is publicly registered in a "notification of suspension," and conforms with the progression of procedures set forth in Section III.



Section III: Suspension to Expulsion: Defining Procedure


Section IIIA) This act hereby codifies that the Prime Minister may suspend a full member as they see fit for the violation of the values of the International Freedom Coalition, provided the suspension adheres to stipulations set forth in Sections IIIB-D, and produces a decisive vote on expulsion within time constraints described therein.

Section IIIB) To suspend a member, the Prime Minister must issue a public notification of suspension, effectively relegating one or more stipulated member states to a "status of suspension" for a period not to exceed 24 hours. From the publication of the Prime Minister's notification, the suspended state(s) shall be granted 23 hours to request a trial and review of all relevant evidence pertaining to the suspension. Following this request, the 24 hour limitation on the suspension period shall be extended until the conclusion of the review, and the passage or failure of legislation of expulsion proposed by the Prime Minister.

Section IIIC) In the event a suspended member declines (or fails) to request a hearing of evidence by the 23rd hour of the suspension period, the Prime Minister must submit legislation of expulsion to the Council. The state of suspension is thereafter extended until the passage or failure of the resolution. In the event the Prime Minister fails to produce legislation of expulsion either 1.) immediately following the conclusion of the judicial review requested by the suspended member, or 2.) by the end of the 24 hour period beginning from the start of the Prime Minister's notification of suspension, the state of suspension shall be immediately and effectively "lifted".

Section IIID) Legislation of Expulsion proposed by the Prime Minister must produce decisive voting options to the council - producing either an ejection or retention of the member state in question. Legislation may not, under any circumstance, permit an "indefinite period of suspension" as an outcome of the final vote. Should expulsion legislation permit voting options beyond ejection or retention, the resolution shall be considered null upon submittal, and shall not qualify to extend the suspension period.

Section IIIE) This act hereby codifies that members may only be ejected by a majority (>50%) vote of the Council. In the event the Council elects to retain the suspended member, the state of suspension shall be immediately lifted.

Section IIIF) This act sets the following precedents for ejection; including but not limited to:
- Hostile military action taken against another member
- Forceful or otherwise physical disruption of the council
- Failing to depose of or the rise of any internal ruling authority which supresses any number of human rights or civil and political liberties
- Participation in any event that contributes as war crimes or crimes against humanity
- Any other action deemed exceptionally heinous or in operation against the values of Freedom and Liberty as outlined in the Musrum Declaration

Rapid Response Force Removal and Reformation Act

Resolution Number: [11]


The Rapid Response Force, which is powered by voluntarily "donated" military units, creates a lack of military cohesion, intensive logistical strain on the government of the International Freedom Coalition, creates additional, unneeded departments within the government of the IFC. In addition, smaller nations are incapable of "donating" military units, as it creates a deficiency in their defenses. Additionally, the "donation" of military units is essentially impossible, by placing the citizens of one country under the command of every IFC nation at once, essentially.

SECTION I

Upon being passed, the Rapid Response Force would be completely disbanded, and military forces of nations would be returned under their command. The IFC Secretary of Defense, as well as the Secretary of the Army, Navy, and Air Force, would be completely removed from the IFC.

SECTION II

The creation of the International Freedom Coalition Emergency Response Initiative is also within the passing of this article.

SECTION III

The International Freedom Coalition Emergency Response Initiative is a group intended to coordinate the individual Rapid Response and/or Emergency Response forces of nations, in order to provide a major buildup of military forces until dedicated strike or defensive units can arrive.

The initiative also encourages multinational coordination of military units in order to provide the most effective relief in a military setting. In addition, the IFCERI does not require military settings only, meaning that in events of natural disasters or other non-military crises, individual nations can decide to send other relief units, which may be better suited to specific crises.

Additionally, nations that are totally incapable of providing military assistance could provide economic aid or material aid instead, also under the IFCERI.

SECTION IV - POSTWORD

The IFCERI should face minimal IFC Governmental interaction, except as maybe suggestions of picking priorities, if needed. However, nations who are represented by the government are still suggested to assist.

Signed,


[Nikolai Markeno, Roskian Federation]

Expulsion of Libraria & Ausitoria

Resolution Number: [14]


Observing, that the nation of Libraria & Ausitoria has been the cause of several controversies, foreign policy threats and as a political entity do not represent nor defend the values of the International Freedom Coalition.

Concerned, that Libraria & Ausitoria will unapologetically and unrepentantly continue these behaviors which may compromise the IFC and the values it represents

Hereby seeks to remove Libraria & Ausitoria from the IFC.


Section I: List of Grievances & Offenses



Section IA: Threatening other Members

Noting that clear, concise and direct threats of hostile military action against other members of the IFC should not be tolerated and observing that Libraria & Ausitoria has in the past:

- Threatened direct invasion of Aravea for issues of petty revenge and monetary gain
- Indirectly threatened Inyursta by aiding and abetting an enemy which was in direct combat against said IFC nation
- Made threats against the sovereign borders of Inyursta while Inyursta was still a member of the IFC
- Attempted to assassinate the Grand Premier of Guadalupador as well as the IFC delegate of Guadalupador with a jumbo jet
- Threatened military retaliation against Guadalupador in defense of Ardokian militaristic power projection and intercontinental aggression

Section IB: Obstructive Values

Observing that the International Freedom Coalition is founded upon a certain set of ideals, including liberty, freedom and democracy; and while understanding that some of these ideals are subjective, find that Ausitoria does not by any measurement fit these ideals for the following reasons:

- Anti-democratic rhetoric**, behavior and opposition to the idea of popular rule
- Rejection of national and regional sovereignty and self-determination in favor of policies which benefit the Ausitorian agenda
- Support of dictatorships and criminal régimes, including Ardoki, Asigna and Tuva SSR
- Possible authoritarian government, including but not limited to a police-state like nature, excessive state surveillance of private citizens, and an elitist oligarchy which favors the "Ausitorian Establishment" and its subsequent interests rather than the will of its own people

Section IC: Power Abuses Prime Minister

Recalling that the reign of Ausitoria as Prime Minister was by far the most tyrannical and unfree as the IFC has ever seen, and reminding honorable members of the Council of some of these heinous abuses of power including:

- Uncalled for, illegal, and undemocratic ejections and suspensions of members deemed a threat to the Ausitorian agenda, including Aravea, Inyursta, Deian Salazar and Pillowlandia
- Power Consolidation**, including moving the IFC Council to Ausitorian territory where unwanted members would not be let in and other members could be threatened by obnoxious uses of force.
- Forcing and Silencing legislation without fair or consistent voting time or participation; as well as outright ignoring and rejecting legislation deemed a threat to the Ausitorian agenda
- Forcefully allowing Ardoki - a nation notorious for insane and irreconcilable crimes against humanity (including genocide, human experimentation, state-sponsored rape, etc.) - direct membership against the will of the Council

Furthermore understanding that abuses of power as Prime Minister are not and should not by nature be taken as ejectable offenses, but noting that in this particular case when added to all the other offenses against other members, should be held in extreme regard when reviewed by the Council.

Section ID: War with SACTO

Understanding that warfare is a natural part of international relations and incidents, but likewise appalled by Ausitorian doctrine which advocates mass retaliation and nuclear warfare over the slightest of perceived offenses. Recalling that the nation in attempted to start a war with SACTO, another powerful alliance, for posing a threat to Ausitorian global dominance. We bring to the attention of the Council where Ausitoria has not once but twice brought to IFC to the brink of nuclear war with another alliance:

- In the Aravean Crisis, where Ausitoria threatened nuclear retaliation over petty rules of engagement
- During the Second Tarkan-Whiteshore War; where Ausitoria attempted to back an anti-democratic régime (which was persecuting political minorities at the time) for no other reason than to "challenge SACTO"

Furthermore understanding that repeatedly trying to cause a war is not an ejectable offense by itself but noting the destructive, irrational and inhumane nature of the caliber of warfare proposed by Ausitorian doctrine, again paired with all the other offenses against other members, should be held in extreme regard when reviewed by the Council.

Section IE: Illegal Seizure of the Position of Speaker

Observing that Libraria & Ausitoria has literally just attempted to appoint themselves to the position of Speaker after blatantly and objectively loosing the election fair and square in a landslide; and furthermore confirming that the IFC cannot allow nations to seize or act upon positions which they have not been appointed to or elected for, especially in the purpose of passing their own agendas.


Section II: Council Action



Directs the Council and all appropriate officials to, in accordance with Resolution 10C, move to eject the nation of Libraria & Ausitoria from the IFC.

We hope that honorable members of the Council can come to agree that threatening other members is bad, ruling the IFC like a dictator was bad, democracy is good, and nuclear war is bad.

Council Procedure Reform

Resolution Number: [15]


Observing, that the defined voting procedure and respective confirmation/denial is ill-defined in many aspects which has resulted in extra hassle and gridlock among the Council during the debating and voting process of voting on Resolutions.

Concerned, that Council procedures are not boldly outlined.

Resolving, to outline Council procedures for smoother Council functioning

Section I: Voting Process



SECTION I(A): Vote Time
This act sets a minimum time interval for the voting process at approximately two days and recognizes that it is the right of the acting Speaker to determine any upper bound on voting time.

SECTION I(B): Self-Voting
This act recognizes that the delegation(s) involved with the draft process of a Resolution automatically receive a vote in favor of their own resolution unless stated otherwise by the delegation(s).

SECTION I(C): Referendum Votes
This act recognizes all votes not on resolutions to be classified as "Referendum Votes" and acknowledges they require different attention that voting for resolutions.
This act does not grant self-voting to delegates during the process of a referendum vote and requires that they must vote for, or against, themselves during such a process to receive a vote.


SECTION I(D): Voting Power
This act confirms that "One nation receives One vote" and empowers IFC leadership to deny any attempt by a delegation to receive two or more votes. The only exception to this is in the event of a changed vote, where this act confirms that the new vote overrides the previous vote by said delegation.

Section II: Additional Power



SECTION II(A): Deputy Speaker
This act creates the separate office of the Deputy Speaker to act in place of the speaker either by request of the speaker or in the event of their extended absence. The Deputy Speaker has the same rights and privileges as the speaker when they are assuming the post.

SECTION II(B): Motions of the Council
This act confirms the power of individual delegations to orderly request a change in Council procedure for a vote. Motions may be seconded, thirded or greater but the acting speaker is not required by legislation to accept the motion unless fifty-percent or greater of the Council agrees on a motion.
Furthermore, this act limits the power of motions only to:
    I: Extend Voting Time on a Resolution
    II: End Extended Voting on a Resolution
    III: Throw out "Trollish" Amendments to Resolutions
    IV: Call for an Official Tally
    V: Call for a Re-count of Votes

Dissolution of Rapid Response Force Act

Resolution Number: [16]

The passage of this document immediately dissolves the Rapid Response Force, and all organizationss involved with it

On IFC Rapid Response Force Independent Requisitions, items will be offered for sale at a discounted price (25%) to memberstates, as soon as they have returned from deployment. After 180 days, they can be sold to other nations. The Prime Minister reserves the right to deny any sale to any nation for any reason, and is not required to state why.

Joint Military Readiness Act

Resolution Number: [17]


The Passage of this Document immediately creates the Joint Military Readiness Initiative

SECTION A:
The Joint Military Readiness Initiative is a non-restrictive version of the Rapid Response Force. Instead of having the International Freedom Coalition government in charge of any response force, individual memberstates can more flexibly move their units around. Joint Military Readiness also will provide facilities to promote multinational cooperation by military commands.

SECTION B:
The Joint Military Readiness Initiative (JMRI) will be supported by Joint Military Readiness Facilities (JMRF), located strategically around IFC memberstates. Any large military installation can become a JMRF and others can be built. Port Nakrev IFC MIlitary Installation will become a JMRF.

SECTION C:
JMRI will provide direct communication to military leaders, primarily through JMRFs, and secondarily through direct channels to military headquarters. Nations are encouraged (but not required) to create an emergency communication route with JMRI, which will be the center of multinational communication. Host nations of JMRFs are required to create direct emergency channels.

SECTION D:
JMRI will have a central facility, constructed as a portion of Port Nakrev JMRF. This facility will be a medium for meetings amongst military leaders, as well as the central communication center between national armed forces.

SECTION E:
JMRFs will be paid for by the IFC Government, however, the troops, equipment, and other things directly related to the armed forces (as in not the facility, barracks, or land) will be supplied and paid for by individual memberstates. This creates a way for individual states to pull troops in the event of a substantial crisis, or creates a way for troops to be placed in an area in immediate danger of conflict.

Signed,

Restraining, from dictating to current member nations their internal policy;

Declaring that all people have a right to participate in the political process, no matter their views,

Pointing out the colonialist tendencies of the new government of the Union State of Chkalovsk with the appropriation of the Republic of Kazakhstan and the invasion of Belarus;

Let it be resolved that the membership of the Union State of Chkalovsk be put on probation on account of the political ban of all parties that fall on the left side of the political spectrum. Should the ban on the political parties on the left stay in place, the Union State of Chkalovsk shall be thrown out of the IFC.

Furthermore, the IFC shall put sanctions on the Union State of Chkalovsk should its government continue in its course of disenfranchising those who have political beliefs contrary to the government.

ADDENDUM: It is highly suggested that the selection of candidates for the position of IFC-PKF Commander-In-Chief come from member-states that remain fully committed to the International Freedom Coalition over other commitments to other international alliances and treaty organizations.

FUNDS: The equipment will be purchased from a series of encouraged donations from new and existing members to purchase equipment for humanitarian missions, military, and other expenses.
A discretionary fund made up of combination of donations and levies from the larger Coalition Fund will be established. This discretionary fund will be allocated by the Prime Minister with advisement by the Council.

RECRUITMENT: The IFC-PKF will be made of volunteer forces of various member states. These forces will then be stationed in bases across member states and integrated fully, no segregated units will be encouraged. The recruitment will be preferential to former and active military members of member nations. Citizens that are up to the physical standards may be admitted to the IFC-PKF.

EQUIPMENT: The Commander-In-Chief and their general staff will allocate funds to purchase equipment to be issued to the IFC-PKF as they are under Coalition contract. This equipment will provide the IFC with standardized military equipment that will allow for seamless integration of member forces.

ENGAGEMENTS: Engagements will be provided to the IFC Council for careful consideration, if they meet the standards set forth by the Council then they will call upon the CIC to order the IFC-PKF into service. The Rules of Engagement will be written by the Commander-in-Chief and their general staff.

The CIC has the power to bypass the IFC Council to activate the IFC-PKF only in very special circumstances. Engagements considered "Emergency Actions" which are considered but not limited to: a Civil War within a Member-State, Mass Civil Disturbances within Member-States, an offensive conflict against a Member-State by a hostile force, response to a hostile act against the entirety of the Coalition, etc.


Signed,
