Repeal 'Voting Equality for Freed Inmates'

Background Information

Proposal title: Repeal 'Voting Equality for Freed Inmates'
Author: Tinhampton
Purpose: To repeal previous legislation, which blocks the WA from passing new legislation that would require member states to grant full suffrage to current and former prisoners, as it currently reserves the decision on this topic to the individual nations.

The Office's Analysis

Although GAR#419's intentions were admirable in prohibiting the disenfranchisement of voters by their criminal history, included in that resolution were the means to disenfranchise citizens who remain imprisoned. The current repeal provided by Tinhampton is aimed at allowing future General Assembly law to extend guaranteed voting rights to the incarcerated. OWL voters have deemed that voting is a civil right that all citizens should have, and that a repeal is necessary for new legislation to this end.

Anatasha is a Citizen of the South Pacific. They posted this on their OWL vote:

Anatasha wrote:While some criminals and those that have gone to prison might have done horrible acts, most of the criminals are generally not that bad. Just like what Cocao has said, many of these criminals will serve long times in prison so that they will turn into better person and turn into a new leaf instead. Therefore, I believe that they should have the right just like any other individuals to be able to vote in the democratic process.

Concrete Slab is a Local Council member of the South Pacific. He posted this on their OWL vote:

Concrete Slab wrote:Anyway, I agree that prisoners should have the right to vote, and Article 3 of the target resolution could prevent them from having this right. Thus, the delegation from Concrete Slab is pleased to cast a For vote.

Doge Land is a legislator of the South Pacific.

Doge Land wrote:The quality of proposals has taken a huge drop lately. Yeah no, just because some crap proposal hit the voting floor in the SC (and got stomped accordingly) doesn't mean you can make some 2-liner repeal and expect it to pass. I need more than one reason, or maybe I'm just bored and want to see some proposal die on the voting floor

NEW SECURITY COUNCIL PROPOSAL DISCUSSION AND VOTE
---------------------------------------------------

Title: Commend Valentine Z
Author: The Chuck (co-authored by Destructive Government Economic System, Orca and Narwhal, and Honeydewistania)
Purpose: To award Valentine Z a badge of commendation for a series of achievements, most notably their extensive public work in all things data, and involvement in the North Pacific and the Free Nations Region.

The Chuck wrote:The World Assembly,

Affirming the mission of this Council to recognise nations who have made immense positive contributions to the international community, and believing that Valentine Z is one such nation,

Applauding Valentine Z for their painstaking efforts in the utilisation of multiple supercomputers to process statistics from every nation in existence to publish “Trends, Correlations, Anti-Correlations, Oh My!”, a repository of graphs that deal with how possible statistics may affect other statistics when addressing national issues,

Delighted that Valentine Z has also released the raw statistical data for public use, allowing other interested nations to create their own graphs and make observations,

Appreciating Valentine Z for their curatorship of a list of every single dilemma posed to national leaders, as well as their creative usage of technology to automatically update the list, granting speedy access to this documentation of issues for the perusal of all,

Extolling Valentine Z’s creation of the application "Gold Retriever", a highly versatile and vital tool that enabled nations to easily track cumulative art valuations and funds from multiple entities, an otherwise complicated and time consuming process which posed onerous barriers to artwork trade,

Admiring Valentine Z's involvement in The North Pacific Cards Guild, the predecessor the current Ministry of Cards, an artwork organisation that promotes unity among collectors, wherein Valentine Z served as Deputy Guildmaster and played a critical role in the recognition of impressive collections via “The Monthly Card Collection Competition”,

Observing that in the The Free Nations Region, Valentine Z under the satellite state Vostrov served as Minister of Information and as a moderator of the region’s official communications channels, contributing to the distribution of crucial regional updates and the enforcement of proper conduct in communications media,

Further noting that Valentine Z has also published articles that distribute information to the public, notably a well-researched news bulletin that documented a recent thermonuclear war, granting many curious people access to a plethora of knowledge regarding the international event,

Pleased that as a candidate for the 2020 WA Secretary-General election, Valentine Z joined forces with Atlantian Oceania and achieved fourth place, and that this pact between the two nations has been credited with forging unlikely alliances between many nations that last to this day,

Lauding the linguists of Valentine Z for spearheading the international documentation of the Valentian language “Valkyrie Språk”, a microcosm of many different languages, with the goal of ensuring that the cultural entities of those languages can all feel included as part of the Valentian country,

Grateful for Valentine Z’s multiple, extensive contributions, every single one being of an inspirational, motivational, or helpful and informative nature and generally spread a morale-boosting message internationally, promulgating ceaseless positivity to all nations in the name of peace and well-being, hereby

Commends Valentine Z.

NEW SECURITY COUNCIL PROPOSAL DISCUSSION AND VOTE
---------------------------------------------------

Title: Commend Roavin
Author: Vippertooth33 (co-authored by Praeceps)
Purpose: To honor Roavin's immense contributions to the South Pacific and The Order of the Grey Wardens, and the Defender community in general, with a shiny badge of commendation.

Vippertooth33 wrote:The Security Council,

Recognising the selflessness of Roavin as a resolute protector and public servant to regions across the NationStates community,

Celebrating Roavin’s contributions to the just and noble cause of defending during their service as First Warden of the defender region The Order of the Grey Wardens, where over the course of a year they:

  1. Tripled membership of the Wardens, ensuring more regions were able to be protected,

  2. Led the creation of the Guardian program, empowering less active defending nations to contribute to operations through focusing on detag and piling, providing a basis for future success,

  3. Created an advanced registry of nations in regions which could be mobilized in the event a defence was required,

Applauding Roavin’s work as a mentor for well known and respected defenders including the current WA Secretary-General and commended nation Kuriko, as well as Nakari, Merlin, Aumeltopia, Phoenix, Omega, and Pyrohy,

Astounded by Roavin’s sheer determination to protect innocent regions completing well over 1600 defenses and liberations, most notably:

  1. Leading a liberating force of 49 nations against an occupation of Japan in 2017,

  2. Liberating the Philippines just in time to save the Christmas holidays,

  3. Besting an active raiding force of 25 nations to help defend Portugal,

Acknowledging Roavin’s strategic and technological abilities, which have enabled thousands of defensive victories in raided regions, including but not limited to:

  1. Developing a technique in 2017 that allowed greater accuracy whilst defending regions, in spite of usual limitations such as size or proximity to large regions that would otherwise make some regions hard to defend,

  2. Establishing strategies to ensure that the endorsements of a large liberating force are placed in an accurate and timely manner,

  3. Training organisations in the attrition run technique to dislodge raiders with large influence levels,

  4. The creation of the “Hunter Prime Operations Technology” in 2016; increasing organisation and operational security for defender communication channels,

Impressed by Roavin’s significant contributions to The South Pacific (TSP) over several years in a variety of areas which have made TSP more secure; including:

  1. Serving as the Prime Minister of the region for five terms, where they emphasized Cabinet forum discussions over instant communication media, improving record keeping and quality of discussion, introduced initiatives aimed at increasing transparency and addressed communication issues between the Ministry of Regional Affairs and the Assembly,

  2. Serving as interim Minister of Foreign Affairs for TSP during an attempted coup of The East Pacific, coordinating TSP’s response which included mobilizing TSP’s military and their citizens’ militia as well as disseminating progress updates to TSP citizens,

  3. Authoring “Commend Tsunamy”, a Security Council Resolution that recognised a nation for their contributions to the stability of TSP,

  4. Being notably involved in improvements to TSP’s legislation through collaboration in creating premises, writing legislation, or lobbying for the passage of legislation such as:

    1. Comprehensive judicial reform to simplify the judicial system, eliminate loopholes, and transform the court into a non-adversarial system,

    2. Rewriting the transparency laws to ensure it applies to the Court as well as the Executive, requiring thorough documentation, and permitting auditing,

    3. Empowering the Council of Regional Security to utilize border control,

    4. Creating the Legislator Committee which streamlined the bureaucratic system in which new representatives are acclimated to the legislature.

Noting that the Curious Observations made by Roavin on the state of Lazarus in July 2017 were right, and that they exposed corruption and subterfuge within the region,

Extolling the dedicated service of Roavin in the noble struggle to prevent the advance of the Nazi/Fascist menace, as evidenced by them:

  1. Uniting multiple major regions with varying ideologies to fight Nazis/Fascists through founding the organization Ruining Nazi Sandcastles,

  2. Supporting liberating the regions The Red States and The Empire of Lights from Nazi/Fascist control through serving as a border control officer and planning the operations,

  3. Providing logistics support in the Union Of The Fascist Nations operation, a region just short of 700 Fascist nations at its peak,

  4. Coordinating, planning, strategising the raids against Nazi Imperialist Japan and Elite Region Of Global Command, and securing the demise of these hateful regions,

Believing Roavin’s contributions have made an immense positive impact on the international community, hereby,

Commends Roavin.

Roavin has been doing an incredible job in TSP alone, and while many of their other achievements noted in the proposal predate my time in NS, I've still heard of Roavin's great leadership ‒ and I'm not even a person particularly involved in the R/D sphere, which makes the fact that that information trickled down even to me even more impressive. I also don't have anything to complain about regarding writing or formatting of the proposal, so full support from my side.
