Non-voting class membership will always be made available. * * * _ #_13__ VOTER AUTHENTICATION: Voters must only provide their name (as registered), and at least two methods for contacting the voter, as part of their registration. When two or more methods of contact aren't provided by the voter, then further explanation will be considered by the Vote Counting Ministry verifiers. Violation of this or any other rule will automatically disqualify a ballot. Additional Measures Once 500 Members of International Parliament (MIPs) are elected, the following rules automatically take effect: 13.a Registered voters must meet stricter verification standards and each vote to be verified. 13.b Elected MIPs must also meet the same stricter verification standards and each MIP vote to be verified. 13.c Registered voters and elected members must apply for ID#, verification and validation when voting online, via postal, telephone, facebook or at conventions. The issuance of the ID# will be required for the registered voter to participate. 13.d ID# information will be stored in the International Parliament's files in chronilogical order. 13.e All new sign-ups, nominees and elected names within each party/category will qualify for the ballot and will be ranked below all other names on the prepared ballot. The order of these names will be determined first based on the rankings of "nomination ballots", and secondly by chronological order of the dates that the nominee's name was received. Ties are broken alphabetically. 13.f First International Parliament Election Guidelines 2017 The first 500 new sign ups are considered elected as Member of International Parliament (MIP) by the process of signing up. Once 500 names sign up, new sign-ups become the "nominees" in first International Parliament Election. On Feburary 1st through March 31st Nominations will be accepted. At the time of the writing of these guidelines (1/13/2017), new signups are occurring after the 500th signup, and the new signups between January 13th and February 1st will also be considerd as nominees and added to the blank ballot. April 1st to April 19th is the preiod for ballot preparation and no new nominations accepted. April 20th Eballot is released April 20th to August 5th votes accepted. New sign-ups are accepted as #1 vote for new sign-up name. August 5th, voting closed. August 6th votes counted and election results are announced. After August 5th 2017, new sign-ups will no longer counted as votes for MIP but the signup action may count as a #1 vote for the person signing up to seats in the Cabinet as Director. 13.g The details of the first election schedule and guidelines for the election which follows the "International Parliament Election of 2017" will be set by the International Parliament's Vote Counting Ministry. The names elected to the "International Parliament Election of 2017", along with nominees set by a future vote on guidelines, will all qualify for the election to follow to be known as the "First International Parliament" and the specifics will be detailed in the here in guideline item 13.f. Estimated time frame for First International Parliament Election will be one to ten years after 2/1/2017. 13.h TOP TEN TICS Once voting for MIPs begins when all the above items have taken effect, each registered voter is asked to vote for a maximum of ten names in any election. When more than ten names are correctly ranked in consecutive order on the ballot or eballot, then only the first ten names are considered recipients of the ranked votes, but not names enumerated number eleven (11) and after number eleven (11), which are affected. The Vote Counting Ministry is directed to count the earliest marked eballots which rank more than ten names until all 500 seats are guaranteed to be elected. Once 500 names are guaranteed elected, then all marked eballots that follow, the Vote Counting Ministry is asked to count only the top ten names on each marked eballot. 13.i Once an automated/robotic voting system is in place, the limit of eleven rankings may not be required and may not be in effect. 13.j Once the ID# is registered then the voter is encouraged to use the eballot, but the paper ballot is also acceptable. * * * #14 The top-ranked names for the 500 elected MIPs (MIP=Member of International Parliament) and the top-ranked names for the 500 Senators are elected as a set of 1000 names which are listed based on rankings and grouped together in groups of parties/categories. The 501st-ranked names for MIP and Senator, along with all additionally consecutively ranked names, serve as back-ups. * * * #15 RANKED VOTING ONLY: All voting and vote counting shall be in the form of ranked paper ballots only (and eballots when practical and verifiable). Consecutive numbers beginning with the #s 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. etc. must always be used when marking on (e)ballot of all alternative decisions or names. Deviation from this guideline will disqualify the ballot, and the ballot will be marked spoiled. * * * #16 Pure proportional representation (PR) will always be used. * * * #17 THE SAINTE-LAGUE PARLIAMENT SYSTEM, Hagenbach-Bischoff method, under ranked choice voting, for seat allocation in all multi-seat districts: Divide the election's total number of votes by the number of seats. This is the 1st quota. Divide this quota into each candidate's votes, and round off to the nearest whole number. That's that candidate's seat allocation. If, due to rounding, this awards a number of seats different from the desired number of seats, then adjust the quota slightly up or down, till, when paragraph two is carried out, it will award all seats. * * * #18 Any resident of earth, nominee and/or proxy may observe the counting of the ballots. Volunteer counters will conduct the vote counting. * * * #19 Choices marked on "eballots" are posted for public view and are not bound by confidentiality under the behavior of officers of the Parliament. * * * #20 EBALLOTS are ballots cast via email and must be emailed to unitedcoalition "at" international-parliament "dot" org, a private email address used by the secretary and observers for receiving such eballots. No reply email will be sent to voters who cast eballots other than a verification message, unless the voter indicates that he/she wishes to be self appointed/elected to the www.international-parliament.org site or when a question regarding verification or validation is raised by a volunteer vote counter. * * * _ #_21__ Volunteer vote counters may be added to the exploder email address unitedcoalition "at" international-parliament "dot" org as a subscriber by sending the message "subscribe" to unitedcoalition "at" international-parliament "dot" org. * * * _ #_22__ Telephone voting is permissible, acceptable and verification and validations will be provided when requested. * * * _ #_23__ Elections of rules shall be perpetual and the simple majority vote, by elected MIPs/Senators who vote on rules, passes rules. * * * _ #_24__ BALLOTS AND EBALLOTS: All world residents are eligible to vote once, in each International Parliament Election cycle. * * * #25 1000 Members of International Parliament (MIPs) There will be five-hundred "Members of International Parliament" (MIPs) who are elected members for free under ranked choice voting as one 1000-member at-large district. * * * #26 THE PARTY LEADER within the International Parliament is a label for the highest ranked name categorized under each party. Party leaders are responsible for the distribution of all ballots and rules to the members of their party/category and lists. * * * #27 Such ballots may be retype set or altered to specifically identify their select nominees' correct name and party affiliation. All ballots released to public used by the International Parliament's elected secretaries shall count as a legitimate ballot and shall be presumed to represent the correct and most current candidate name information. * * * #28 BALLOT: ORDER OF NOMINEES of all names in the parliament elections and subsidiary parliament elections will be determined by the results caused by the voters' ranking of the nominees on the previous election's ballots. This is known as the correct consecutive order of nominee. Appointments and self-appointments will be listed chronologically. * * * #29 NOMINEE ACCEPTANCE AND WRITE-INS: Only names who formally ACCEPT the nomination of their name, self write-in names and those currently already elected will qualify for the ballot/eballot for the International Parliament. * * * #30 A verifiable name and contact information must be provided in order to qualify as a nominee for the (e)ballot. * * * #31 The final order of the parties/categories on the final prepared ballot will be determined by three criteria; 1) ranking in assembly based on votes cast as proof, Senator block, and lastly new nominee names. * * * #32 TIES: Ties will be broken by holding a runoff election only when called by one of the Ten Executives. In all other cases, all the names/items in a tie will be included in the results and will be in a new "tied" category, even if the size of the assembly or agenda list must be expanded beyond normal size set forth by these rules. * * * #33 ONLY ONE SINGLE PARLIAMENTARY BALLOT, IS PERMITTED TO BE MARKED BY EACH WORLD RESIDENT: All living world citizens may vote one time and only one time. In cases where a second ballot (or more) is cast, only the latter of the ballots will be counted, the former will be marked spoiled, deleted and regarded disqualified. * * * #34. SENATORS A maximum of 500 Senator "seats" are elected/appointed based on a $60. annual donation. * * * #35. SENATOR TERMS The term for Senators begins on the date of the donation and continues for one year (365 days) in the following year of sign-up. The first criterea for ranking of Senator seat is donation level. The second criterea for ranking of Senator seat is chronological order. The third criterea for ranking of Senator seat is votes cast in 1000-member assembly elections. The Senator's donation will be recorded and received. Should the Senator ever wish to "stand down", then the donation amount will be not be refunded nor will the donation be transferred to another name. The numbers of seats for Senators shall never be more than the number of free elected members of International Parliament (MIPs). The Senators may vote on Senate guidelines and decisions from time to time but there is no requirement for such votes which are voluntary only. These compilation of votes will be conducted only by the Senators themselves. All Senators shall have access to all financial records for the International Parliament. More detailed information which isn't available on the Treasury Ministry's web page will be made available within 90 days to Senators after a request is made in writing to the Treasury Minister. All payments are to be in US dollars only unless pre-approval is obtained from the Treasury Ministry. * * * #36. SENATOR DONATION Once the donation/contribution is received, the donor's funds will be deposited into a bank account which is controlled by Treasury Minister, the President and the Vice President of the International Parliament. All donors who contribute a minimum donation amount of $60. to the International Parliament (IP) will promptly and automatically become known as "Senator", once the donation has been correctly registered with the Treasury Minister, and/or is received by the appropriate clerk. * * * #37. The 500 Senators are not elected during regular election cycles of the parliament's elections. The total donation amount will apply as both an annual sum or a total of multiple years. The annual donation is primarily for convention services and the sum from multiple years has a secondary purpose which can apply to different purposes other than the annual convention services. * * * #38. When five hundred Senators have been elected, special new guidelines for Senator elections, the nomination and election of the new Senator guidelines will become effective, and an election of current and newly nominated Senators may take place within 90 days of reaching the 500 Senator sign ups. * * * #39. When Terms of Senator Ends After expiration date of Senator term, based on $60. per year, the Senator is automatically elected as MIP on the first day of the first year which follows their term as Senator. All Senators past and present, are automatically elected into the Republic of Earth, Province, the Province where the country from which the Senator/donor originated, until new Province guidelines for elections are established. Once the 500-seat Senate chamber is elected, lower-ranked Senators/donors "spill over" into a national Republic of Earth, the country from which the Senator/donor originated. When no country is known then the name is eliminated from all records and no splill-over takes place. * * * #40. Senator IDs Senators receive by email a special ID acknowledging the one-year term for Senator. The term begins on the day the donation is received and lasts through one full year. The ID will have text on one side only and will be in digital form and emailed or sent via facebook text. The signers on the ID will be the top-ranked President and top-ranked Vice President, of the Ten Volunteer Executives. Should there be no willing signer among the choices of President and Vice President, then the highest ranked Execs who agree to sign will be acceptable. The process for approving Senators is as follows: --The Senator completes the sign-up form and pays the donation. --The Senator confirms their identity by messaging a copy of their state's identification. Only names on state IDs can be used on certificate. --The Senator's term begins on date of donation and lasts through the end of the sign-up year and the next consecutive full year. --The Senator's name remains on the home page of the International Parliament for the complete year that the donation had been paid, and at the end of the first full following year (December 31st), the Senator's term concludes. Senators of whose term had expired, are then transferred from the title "Senator", to "MIP", and they are removed from all communication lists for Senators. --After the new Senator completes the required steps, an ID and certificate is completed and emailed to the new Senator. The ID and certificate are broadcast via email and/or facebook to popularize the title of Senator. * * * #41. DECLARATION Senators must sign a special declaration provided by Vote Counting Ministry. The declaration will be emailed, and must be signed and returned with origibal signature on paper within 90 days of receipt or the Senator will be removed from post. * * * #42. TWELVE WORLD-WIDE POPULATION-BALANCED DISTRICTS The earth's total population will be grouped in twelve population-balanced Province Republics where no boundary is breached. Countries and groups of countries will be ranked from top most populated Province (#1) to lowest populated province (#12). In cases like China, India, Africa and America, the country-groupings can be alternately staggered, based on magnitudes of populations. Subsidiary countries, states and provinces within these tweleve population-balanced worldwide Provices need not be adjacent to each other when alternating the grouping-order within whole countries or centinents which were ranked consecutively based on population-totals of each subsidiary country, state and province. The highest criterea for grouping countries, states or provinces within each of the twelve worldwide population-balanced Provinces is the population counts and the ranking or all states being grouped. The world's total population will be divided into twelve population-balanced regions for organization purposes: Navigation to the Earth's Twelve Population-Balanced Provinces (Est. 2016) 1. China #1 2. China #2 3. India #1 4. India #2 5. Africa #1 6. Africa #2 7. America #1 8. America #2 9. EurAsia and Middle East 10. Russia 11. Europe 12. Asia Pacific Individual "Republic of Earth Parliaments" Grouped by Continent (Est. 2013) * * * #43. Senators to Province Senators names may be listed to their own Republic of Earth, Province Parliament. Listing of Senators is updated at the end of each year before December 31st. * * * #44. Paper Share/stock Certificates From 12/13/2016 forward, all Members who donate $60. or more, are entitled to purchase shares/stocks from the International Parliament's All Party System Co. store as an option. Restictions apply. * * * #45. Paper Share/stock Certificates Restrictions The All Party System Co. manages finances and all things to do with money in the International Parliament. There will be a $25. minimum transaction fee for all share/stock transactions (buying and selling) and restrictions apply. * * * #46. "Voting Stoppage" Whenever a financial crisis occurs where the costs for paying basic maintenance of the International Parliament are not being met, including the costs of domain hosting, web design and obligations to all of the Members, then the Treasury and/or Vote Counting Ministry can place end to all introductions of free membership sign ups of Members of International Parliament (MIPs) and other free services provided by the Vote Counting Ministry and this ending of free services will be known as the "voting stoppage". This bylaw item can also affect the internal Cabinet voting by Ministers, but it will not include/affect "votes of confidence" by the MIPs, and the voting for election of Cabinet Ministers (parliamentary go-ahead) by the Ten Executives. The voting stoppage will terminate either upon the recommendation/consensus to end it by both the Treasury and Vote Counting Ministries, or once the numbers of Senators reaches the same number of free MIPs within the general International Parliament's assembly membership. * * * #47. Diplomatic Passports Some ministers and deputies will be traveling a lot abroad. The International Parliament will try to secure Diplomatic Passports to be used at the airports and borders a diplomatic passport would make sense. Even for the professional legitimacy to foreign politicians. * * * #48. ID Cards * * * #49. For activities within the country an ID card is sufficient. However, a professionally designed plastic card should be used here. Since the International Parliament nevertheless plays an important role in the world standard, we should already pay attention to a professional public image. In the future, ID cards may be produced for regular memberships, Ministers, Directors, MIPs or others. But no ID cards can be produced for members unless authorized by guidelines. * * * #50. The International Parliament will not ever hold any election in a single- winner district, where one single-winner decision or name is elected. * * * #51. Ballot Preparation * * * #52. SPACE FOR THREE OR MORE WRITE-IN choices must be provided on each and every ballot, in all elections. * * * #53. CATEGORIZATION AND PARTY NAMES The first and most important criterion in determining the nominee's party/category is the nominee's most recently requested or declared party/category in Parliament matters. The second most important criterion in determining the nominee's party/category is determined by the nominee's state's records, as written by the member while registering to vote. Appointed members may be categorized with any party/category that they wish, and the party/category of all members is considered to be the true one. Elected members may decide to change or switch their party/categorization at any time by proclamation. Members automatically qualify for the ballot in the next election cycle under the party/category of their choice. * * * #54. First and last names are required. All nominated names will be added to the ballot along with the party/category of the nominee, country of origin and date elected. When the party/category is not known, the label "[Info. Not Avail.]" will be used. When country is unknown the word "Earth" is assigned beside the name. A nominee's name (and thus identity) may appear on the ballot only once, so fusion voting is not allowed. * * * #55. RESIGNATIONS. When elected members ask to be removed or they "stand down", ask for "freeze of membership", resign, retire, or die - the name is deleted. Once the name is deleted, then the next highest ranked name is automatically elected to the seat in their stead. There is a one-week grace period (168 hours) for the person who resigned to change their mind and remain with the International Parliament. Once the week grace period passes, a resigning member who wishes to return may only return as a new member. When a member or candidate who has chosen to resign/stand down but then wishes to return to the position which they had departed, then they must first be re-affirmed by all the voters who had previously cast a vote for them, in cases where an Executive or Cabinet position is affected. * * * #56. Resignation of Executives. When one of the Ten Execs stands down, a "vote of confidence" is called, within 30 days. The goal is to elect better Executives by calling for nominations in an method to intentionally elect more active Execs. Once the call is made, a second 30-day period to receive votes is established, and at the end of the 60 days newly elected Executives are announced. * * * #57. TEN EXECUTIVES * * * #58. ELECTIONS. Once elected, all new Members of International Parliament (MIPs) may change their vote as a "vote of confidence" for the ten executives into perpetuity. * * * #59. THE VOICE of the International Parliament will be the ten executives. * * * #60. Each of the elected ten executives may pick an "Executive Seat-Title" once elected. * * * #61. The ten executives elect up to sixty full Cabinet Ministers and sixty Deputy Cabinet Ministers using the "parliamentary go-ahead". * * * #62. The International Parliament's ten executives agree to rank all names nominated by each of the other nine executives, thus guaranteeing that each of the ten executives elects 1/10th of the 60 cabinet ministers. This is known as the "parliamentary go-ahead". * * * #63. THE TEN EXECUTIVES recruit as many people as possible who will work in the Cabinet to run the efforts, elects the planks on the platform and run the parliament's efforts free from political conflict or bias. The executives do not control who gets elected to the general assembly. * * * #64. The ten executives of the International Parliament (IP) will serve as "Founding Executives" on the unity business entity named "All Party System Co., International Bureau", which is established in order to report all unifying news, business, financial matters, vote counting and results of vote counting of the IP to the public and to serve as a store for generating sales of products and services. * * * #65. SIXTY CABINET MINISTERS MINISTRY: A simple majority vote by at least six of the ten executives establishes the parliamentary go-ahead and will elect new Ministers, even without the parliamentary go-ahead. There will be one full Minister and one Deputy Minister elected to all future Cabinet Ministry elections. The full Minister is charged with guiding the Ministry's fifty (50) Directors by recording votes, factoring votes and answering questions. When there is a resignation from full Minister, the Deputy Minister will be automatically elected as full Minister unless any of the Ten Executives rank a different name. When there is an opening at full or Deputy Minister, a top-ranked Director within that Ministry shall be considered a top nominee by the Ten Execs. * * * #66. FIFTY (50) MINISTRY DIRECTORS There will be fifty (50) elected Directors. All Members may only serve as one Minister or Director in any Ministry. No Minister, Deputy Minister or Director may be elected or serve as a Minister or Director in more than one Ministry. Only the Ministers and Directors within each Ministry may elect Directors, resolutions, agenda items, guidelines and Administrators within each earth-at-large Ministry district, except in cases where the Ministry had elected special internal guidelines regulating eligibility for voters for that Ministry. Once Directors are nominated and elected, their name is added to the blank eballot, and they may vote for Director elections. Internal Ministry guidelines may not conflict with the International Parliament's general guidelines. In cases where there is a conflict, these International Parliament's guidelines (AKA "RESOLUTION NUMBER ONE") overrule internal guidelines. * * * #67. GENERAL MINISTRY "FREE DIRECTOR" ELECTION GUIDELINES Initiating the Ministry a. While the Ministry is being established and the Directors and Administrators are being elected to maintain the Ministry, the International Parliament's Ten Executives shall have the authority needed to establish and maintain these Ministry internal Director election guidelines, elected Directors, Administrators, and Senators. Once all of the "seats" named above are elected and filled, then the five-member executive, the two Ministers and three Administrators, are expected to maintain the elections. Any of the Ten Executives may continue to vote on internal Ministry matters until resprictions are implemented by guideline #67.,a. Ministry Directors Fifty Directors Are to Be Elected for Free in Each Ministry Under Ranked Choice Voting b. The fifty "Free Directors" are elected by the Ministy's eligible voters by ranking of the names. Once elected, all the elected Free Directors may vote for the three Administrators, resolutions, agenda items and/or internal guidelines. The full Minister and Deputy Minister may not be elected as a Director, but rankings on a marked eballot for a full and/or Deputy Minister of any Ministry will not cause a spoiled eballot on Director election eballots. In cases where a Minister was not elected as Director, should the full and/or Deputy Minister choose to "stand down", resign, die or be unelected, the name who was Minister or Deputy Minister may be reinstated as Director if the votes are there. Elected Ministers (and Deputy Ministers) are removed/added from the list of the 50 Directors as they are elected/unelected. Acceptance of Nominations c. Nominated names for the ballot electing the Directors must be only names who accept/agree to be nominated and must be ranked to be nominated. When Directors are eliminated from a Ministry for one reason or another, their name may remain on the blank eballot as a nominee for Director. They may also vote as long as they vote for and elect their own name to the Ministry and their name is not currently serving in another Ministry. d. Nominations by Facebook and Sign-up The first fifty names who join the Ministry's facebook page and who are ranked by correctly registered voters of the International Parliament, may be elected to the Ministry. New Directors elected by Ministry facebook page sign-up must complete the International Parliament's sign-up form before their name is elected. Once the cap of fifty Free Directors is reached no more names will be automatically added as elected Directors. Names who join the facebook page may be considered automatically self-nominated and elected Free Directors. Joining/accepting to the facebook page can be equivalent to a one-time #1 vote for their own name in cases where no other internal guidelines had been approved. e. Only the Ministry's full and Deputy Ministers, Directors and Administrators may vote on internal guidelines, resolutions, agendas and other internal Ministry matters. g. Only rules passed by the Ministry itself will be recognized by members of the Ministry, except for rules affecting the in International Parliament that are passed by the International Parliament or its executive committee. All rules passed by other ministries, or other external equal or subordinate entities, which seek to affect this Ministry in International Parliament shall be considered null and void unless approved by the majority of elected Directors within the Ministry itself. h. An administrative committee of five members is established, consisting of the full and Deputy Minister and three administrators. The three Administrators are elected by Directors of the Ministry in an ongoing "vote of confidence" election for Administrators. The highest ranked administrator shall be the Administrator; the second highest, Deputy Administrator; and the third highest, Associate Administrator. The executive committee of five shall have the authority to conduct business on behalf of the ministry, as authorized to do so within ministry guidelines or resolutions. Any member of the Ministry may be elected as one of the three administrators, so long as they accept nomination. The full and Deputy Minister, who by virtue of their offices will already be holding a seat on the five member executive committee, may not be elected as Administrators. Facebook Voting Page and Password i. This five-member executives shall have a password to a facebook page and when one of the five stands down or is unelected, the password may be changed by the remaining five executives to insure privacy. Choosing Party/Category of Directors by Minister j. Since the free speech word/party category is not always the correct word(s), of course the elected Director herself or himself, each Director may always pick a new or different word(s) that they may wish to be listed by their own name within the Ministry and on eballots. The full or Deputy Minister may specify a party/category. Vote Counting Ministry Certification k. The elections last into perpetuity and the voting records and results are to be overseen, announced, maintained and subject to approval and Certification by the International Parliament's Vote Counting Ministry. Certification occurs when the Ministry's web page is updated. Directors May Be Elected in Only One Ministry of IP Cabinet l. In cases where the name holds a seat in a second Ministry, the Vote Counting Ministry will delete the name from the Ministries in which the elected Director has the highest stature. A #1 spot represents the highest ranking. All Directors who hold seats in multiple Ministries are expected to contact the Vote Counting Ministry regarding which Ministry they'd like their name to remain. If no request is made, then the Vote Counting Ministry will have first say in removing the Director's name in the places where the name is the highest ranked. * * * #68 SLANDERERS and ANTAGONISTS NO PERSON MAY BE CENSORED, no limits may be placed on free speech by/of any other person or nominee, including International Parliament's elected members and staff, at any time except when applying these guidelines to the party/category labels/names and when regulating the membership status for regulating antagonists. NO HATE WORDS AS PARTY/CATEGORY NAME: Party/category's labels/names may not be used in such a way that slanders or libels names of any person or other party/categories or individuals. Those that refuse to comply by continuing to libel others through their choice of party name will be categorized as members of the Censored Party. Elected members using a name or pseudonym rather than their actual name, which libels, slanders or mimics (such as incorrect spellings), shall have their name censored and instead will be known only as Anonymous. Members of any International Parliament entity who antagonize others more than once use through the use of profanity, slander, blank-male, insulting or offensive vulgar language, harassing or chauvinistic speech, terrorizing threats, including the threats of lawsuits against other members/vote counters or volunteers within the International Parliament or those who use actual physical force or violence, persons providing a false name and/or contact information, sending repeated emails or facebook messages (five or more) after being asked to refrain from such messages, these members may be permanently or temporarily removed by the full Minister in that Cabinet Ministry, by any of the ten executives of the International Parliament or by the International Parliament's web page or facebook page maintainer. Messages and emails that do not represent our purpose and mission that appear to be threatening, or slanderous should be ignored. Our mission and purpose is clearly stated and any opposition to our mission is an opposition to peace. In most cases we must take the higher ground and ignore. Menacing name-calling through facebook messages and emails can be grounds for removal of the person's membership status, especially when these harrassing messages are directed at those who are busy helping to build membership and unity and when directed at any of the Ten Executives.

The hearing by the Ministry must be completed in thirty days after the facts had been presented and there will be only one hearing by the Ministry. Further appeals may be taken to the "court of public opinion" and a new Mediation and Conciliation Minister must have been elected prior to second appeals. APPEALS In cases where a registered voter and/or member was removed, an appeal on such cases is brought before to the Mediation and Conciliation Minister and must include a serious defense and explanation of the case for the person was removed. There must be also be a demonstrated knowledge of the International Parliament's guidelines and examples of using pure proportional representation (PR) for generating a unifying psychology must be provided. Should any financial compensation be asked for or awarded after an appeal had been heard and a ruling had been finalized by the International Mediation and Conciliation Service Minister which is charged with recommending such financial compensation, then the case can be taken to the All Party System Co.'s International Bureau's Ethics & Grievances Committee of Four where a determination of the exact amount can be made and executed by the All Party System Co.'s CEO. * * * _ #_69__ United Coalition * * * _ #_70__ Declare that all of the elected and appointed members of the International Parliament, all countries' national parliaments, all subsidiary super-state, mini-state and county micro-state parliaments, to be members of a national and international "Unity Coalition" or "United Coalition" effective November 5th, 2014. * * * _ #_71__ The International Parliament's subsidiary Republic "Unity Coalition" elections shall be in two phases; one before the country's primaries and one after the country's primaries.

A withdrawn motion may be reintroduced by any other delegation. Reconsideration of Proposals.

Voters must only provide their name (as registered), and at least two
methods for contacting the voter, as part of their registration.

When two or more methods of contact aren't provided by the voter, then further explanation will be considered by the Vote Counting Ministry verifiers.
Violation of this or any other rule will automatically disqualify a ballot.

Additional Measures
Once 500 Members of International Parliament (MIPs) are elected, the following rules automatically take effect:
13.a Registered voters must meet stricter verification standards.
13.b Elected MIPs must also meet the same stricter verification standards.
13.c Registered voters and elected members must provide a signature drawn with black ink which will be used
for ID and verification and validation at conventions and this signature must also be provided before any vote takes effect.
The issuance of the ID is not required for the registered voter to participate, but the signature must be on file.
13.d Signatures will be stored in the International Parliament's files in alphabetical order or last names.
13.e When funds are available, the signature will be copied to the background of an ID card. Photo
of the voter may also be added for an additional fee charged to ID holder. Each voters ID number will
be included on the ID card.
13.f ID cards may be provided to Senators, beginning with Level Once Senators, followed by Level Two, Three, Four and Five, until all Senators hold ID cards.
13.g ID cards will not have the mailing address of the registered voter and/or elected MIPs and Senators.
13.h All new sign-ups, nominees and elected names within each party/category will qualify for the ballot and will be ranked below all other names on the prepared ballot. The order of these names will be determined first based on the rankings of "nomination ballots", and secondly by chronological order of the dates that the nominee's name was received.
13.i New sign ups are considered elected as Member of International Parliament (MIP) by the process of signing up,
but once the numbers of elected MIPs reached 500 this item "13.i" terminates is is no longer applicable, and only
marked eballots (and marked paper ballots) will elect new MIPs. At that moment in time, the registration of new
sign ups allows the new signed member to vote but the signature may be required as a pre-qualifying condition for voting.
13.j The date that item "13.i" becomes effective, voting for the free MIPs will pause indefinitely until
the money is raise through Senator sign ups or other methods and the signature card is mailed to all MIPs.
13.j Once voting for MIPs begins when all the above items have taken effect, each registered voter may vote for
a maximum of ten names. When more than ten names are correctly ranked in consecutive order on the ballot
or eballot then the first ten names are considered recipients of the ranked votes, but not names enumerated
number eleven (11) and after number eleven (11), which are affected. Once an automated voting system
is inplace, the limit of eleven rankings will not be required and will not be in effect.
13.k Senators with ID signatures on file may vote on MIP blank eballot upon receipt of signature.
13.l Once the signature and ID number is registered then the voter is encouraged to use the eballot,
but the paper ballot is also acceptable.
13.m Rules 13.a though 13.l do not apply to voting for Cabinet Directors and Ministry internal rules,
nor do they apply to Ten Executives votes for full and Deputy Cabinet Ministers.

_14__ General Counting, Balloting and Eballoting Guidelines for International Parliament Elections

_15__ RANKED VOTING ONLY: All voting and vote counting shall be in the form of ranked paper ballots only (and eballots when practical and verifiable). Consecutive numbers beginning with the #s 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. etc. must always be used when marking on (e)ballot of all alternative decisions or names. Deviation from this guideline will disqualify the ballot, and the ballot will be marked spoiled.

_16__ Pure proportional representation (PR) will be used.

_17__ THE SAINTE-LAGUE PARLIAMENT SYSTEM, Hagenbach-Bischoff method, under ranked choice voting, for seat allocation in all multi-seat districts:

Divide the election's total number of votes by the number of seats. This is the 1st quota.

Divide this quota into each candidate's votes, and round off to the nearest whole number. That's that candidate's seat allocation.

If, due to rounding, this awards a number of seats different from the desired number of seats, then adjust the quota slightly up or down, till, when paragraph two is carried out, it will award all seats.

_18__ Any resident of earth, nominee and/or proxy may observe the counting of the ballots. Volunteer counters will conduct the vote counting.

_19__ Choices marked on "eballots" are posted for public view and are not bound by confidentiality under the behavior of officers of the Parliament.

_20__ EBALLOTS are ballots cast via email and must be emailed to vvc "at" allpartysystem "dot" org, a private email address used by the secretary and observers for receiving such eballots. No reply email will be sent to voters who cast eballots other than a verification message, unless the voter indicates that he/she wishes to be self appointed to the www.international-parliament.org site or when a question regarding verification or validation is raised by a volunteer vote counter.

_21__ Volunteer vote counters may be added to the exploder email address vvc "at" allpartysystem "dot" org as a subscriber by sending the message "subscribe" to vvc "at" allpartysystem "dot" org.

_22__ Telephone voting is permissible, acceptable and verification and validations will be provided when requested.

_23__ Elections of rules shall be perpetual and the simple majority vote, by elected MIPs who vote on rules, passes rules.

_24__ BALLOTS AND EBALLOTS: All world residents are eligible to vote in International Parliament Elections 365 days year.

_25__ There will be five hundred members of International Parliament (MIPs) who are elected members self appointed/self nominated for free under ranked choice voting as one 500-member at-large district to be known as "MIPs" and five hundred members who are donors, ranked in order of donation level and are to be known as one 500-member at-large district to be known as "Senator" MIPs.

_26__ THE PARTY LEADER within the International Parliament is a label for the highest ranked name categorized under each party. Party leaders are responsible for the distribution of all ballots and rules to the members of their party/category and lists.

_27__ Such ballots may be retype set or altered to specifically identify their select nominees' correct name and party affiliation. All ballots released to public used by the International Parliament's elected secretaries shall count as a legitimate ballot and shall be presumed to represent the correct and most current candidate name information.

_27__ BALLOT: ORDER OF NOMINEES of all names in the parliament elections and subsidiary parliament elections will be determined by the results caused by the voters' ranking of the nominees on the previous election's ballots. This is known as the correct consecutive order of nominee. Appointments and self-appointments will be listed chronologically.

_29__ NOMINEE ACCEPTANCE AND WRITE-INS: Only names who formally ACCEPT the nomination of their name, self write-in names and those currently already elected will qualify for the ballot/eballot for the International Parliament. There will be a cap at 500 names for the ballot/eballot for the free elections of MIPs.

_30__ A verifiable name and contact information must be provided in order to qualify as a nominee for the (e)ballot.

_31__ The final order of the parties/categories on the final prepared ballot will be determined by the nominees' party name/category and the parties/categories and will be listed on the ballot in alphabetical order.

_32__ TIES: Ties will be broken by holding a runoff election only when called by one of the two secretaries. In all other cases, all the names/items in a tie will be included in the results and will be in a new "tied" category, even if the size of the assembly or agenda list must be expanded beyond normal size set forth by these rules.

_33__ ONLY ONE SINGLE PARLIAMENTARY BALLOT, IS PERMITTED TO BE MARKED BY EACH WORLD RESIDENT: All living world citizens may vote one time and only one time. In cases where a second ballot (or more) is cast, only the latter of the ballots will be counted, the former will be marked spoiled, deleted and regarded disqualified.

_34__ SENATORS

_35__ Once the donation/contribution is received, the donor's funds will be deposited into a bank account which is controlled by Treasury Minister, the President and the Vice President of the International Parliament.

_36__ Senators: All donors who contribute money to the international political entity known as the International Parliament (IP) at the minimum donation amount of $20., will promptly and automatically become known as "Senator" once the donation has been correctly registered with the Treasury Minister and/or is received by the appropriate clerk. The Senators will be grouped into five donor-level groups.

Senators are not elected during regular election cycles of the parliament's elections but they do receive all of the same voting rights plus special donor privileges which apply to the donation level of which the donor has achieved. The total donation amount will apply as both an annual sum or a total of multiple years. The annual sum is primarily for convention services and the sum from multiple years has a secondary purpose which can apply to different purposes other than the annual convention services.

* * *

Upon approval of this bylaw item, all Senators' current donation levels,
shall have their previous fee levels apply retroactively to new benefits
under the same five fee levels with corresponding cost payments.

"Voting Stoppage"

Whenever a financial crisis occurs where the costs for paying basic maintenance of the International Parliament are not being met, including the costs of domain hosting, web design and obligations to all of the Senators, then the Treasury and/or Vote Counting Ministry can place end to all introductions of free membership sign ups of Members of International Parliament (MIPs) and other free services provided by the Vote Counting Ministry and this ending will be known as a "voting stoppage".

This bylaw item can also affect the internal Cabinet voting by Ministers, but it will not include/affect "votes of confidence" by the MIPs, voting by Senators current in dues and the voting for election of Cabinet Ministers (parliamentary go-ahead) by the Ten Executives.

The voting stoppage will terminate either upon the recommendation/consensus to end it by both the Treasury and Vote Counting Ministries, or once the numbers of Senators reaches the same number of free MIPs within the general International Parliament's assembly membership.

Diplomatic Passports

Some ministers and deputies will be traveling a lot abroad. At the airports and borders a diplomatic passport would make sense. Even for the professional legitimacy to foreign politicians.

ID Cards

For activities within the country an ID card is sufficient. However, a professionally designed plastic card should be used here. Since the International Parliament nevertheless plays an important role in the world standard, you should already pay attention to a professional public image.

_38__ Once the top Senator seats are assigned based on ranking of donation level, then lower ranked donors "spill over" into the "Senator MPs" section of the subsidiary Republic of Earth, the country from which the donor originated.

_39__ The Senator's donation will be recorded and should the Senator ever wish to "stand down", then the donation amount will be not be refunded.

_40__ The numbers of seats for Senators shall never be more than the number of free elected members of International Parliament (MIPs).

_41__ The Senators may vote on Senate guidelines and decisions from time to time but there is no requirement for such votes which are voluntary only. These compilation of votes will be conducted only by the Senators themselves.

_42__ Should a MIP who had been elected to a free seat, then be unelected and their name is no longer an elected free member, then their name will be automatically reinstated as a Senator, BoD, committee member and/or the same particular seat title in any subsidiary Republic of Earth, if their donation remained on the International Parliament's records.

_43__ All Senators shall have access to all financial records for the International Parliament. More detailed information which isn't available on the Treasury Ministry's web page will be made available within 90 days to Senators when a request is made in writing to the Treasury Minister.

_44__ All payments are to be in US dollars only unless pre-approval is obtained from the Treasury Ministry.

_45__ The International Parliament will not ever hold any election in a single- winner district where a single-winner decision or name is elected.

_46__ Ballot Preparation

_47__ SPACE FOR THREE OR MORE WRITE-IN choices must be provided on each and every ballot, in all elections.

_48__ CATEGORIZATION AND PARTY NAMES The first and most important criterion in determining the nominee's party/category is the nominee's most recently requested or declared party/category in Parliament matters. The second most important criterion in determining the nominee's party/category is determined by the nominee's state's records, as written by the member while registering to vote. Appointed members may be categorized with any party/category that they wish, and the party/category of all members is considered to be the true one. Elected members may decide to change or switch their party/categorization at any time by proclamation. Members automatically qualify for the ballot in the next election cycle under the party/category of their choice.

_49__ First and last names are preferred, however all names nominated will be permitted on the ballot as well as the party/category of the nominee. If party/category is not known, the label "[Info. Not Avail.]" will be used. A nominee's name (and thus identity) may appear on the ballot only once, so fusion voting is not allowed. All world citizens who had signed up since "RESOLUTION NUMBER 1" was first approved on 10/27/2014 will be automatically added as MIPs retroactively within seven days after the approval of this bylaw item #39.

_50__ RESIGNATIONS. When any elected member, executive or minister, stands down, resigns, retires, or dies - the name is deleted. Then the next highest ranked name is automatically elected to the seat in their stead.

_51__ When a candidate who has chosen to stand down but then wishes to return to the position which they had departed, then they must first be re-affirmed by all the voters who had previously cast a vote for them.

_52__ TEN EXECUTIVES

_53__ MIPs: Once elected, all new Members of International Parliament (MIPs) may change their vote as a "vote of confidence" for the ten executives into perpetuity.

_54__ THE VOICE of the International Parliament will be the ten executives.

_55__ Each of the elected ten executives may pick a seat title once elected.

_56__ The ten executives elect up to sixty full Cabinet Ministers and sixty Deputy Cabinet Ministers using the "parliamentary go-ahead.

_57__ The International Parliament's ten executives agree to rank all names nominated by each of the other nine executives, thus guaranteeing that each of the ten executives elects 1/10th of the 60 cabinet ministers and this is known as the "parliamentary go-ahead".

_58__ THE TEN EXECUTIVES recruit as many people as possible who will work in the Cabinet to run the efforts, elects the planks on the platform and run the parliament's efforts free from political conflict or bias. The executives do not control who gets elected to the general assembly.

_59__ The ten executives of the International Parliament (IP) will serve as "Founding Executives" on the unity business entity named "All Party System Co., International Bureau", which is established in order to report all unifying news, business, financial matters, vote counting and results of vote counting of the IP to the public and to serve as a store for generating sales of products and services..

_60__ SIXTY CABINET MINISTERS

_61__ MINISTRY: A simple majority vote by at least six of the ten executives establishes the parliamentary go-ahead and will elect new Ministers, even without the parliamentary go-ahead.

_62__ MINISTRY DIRECTORS: Ministries may elect up to fifty Directors and any number of resolutions, agenda items, guidelines and administrators. The fifty Directors must be elected in one at-large district and their titles as "Directors" may be any title, for example each director may pick their own title too.

_63__ All International national Cabinet Ministers must be live, real people and no avatars or anonymous names may be used by the elected Cabinet Ministers. Only real names can be used and verification of the member's true name may be requested when such verifications are of interest from anyone of the ten executives.

_64__ HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES MINISTRY: The book "Know Thyself, Your Body's Wisdom for Living Consciously" will be added as a guide to the proposed Health and Human Services Ministry web page. For many ages, humanity has been confused about what decisions regenerate and degenerate our living systems. The Body itself has always held this wisdom of natural laws for our organ/gland functioning on 253 circuits of personal powers (but not always available until infrared could shine the light on it). The Body's own immense wisdom can show us how our next decision degenerates us or regenerates us (based on 40 years of scientific research using infrared technology that can be tracked, measured and decoded by the Language of the Body itself). This Self Evident and undeniable truth from our energetic design makes it an unparalleled guide to help humans make decisions (about voting, laws, or new customs, etc.) that can regenerate us from within as well as from without. (http://www.consciousnesssystems.com [1] to read the book). Also, VOLUNTARY LAW: The blog site http://vlda.org/, the Voluntary Law Development Association, owned by Jonathan Jaech will be added to the proposed

_65__ VOLUNTARY LAW MINISTRY: The Voluntary Law Ministry web page and can accompany 'Know Thyself, Your Body's Wisdom for Living Consciously' (that can both be used as the foundational principles for voluntary international law). These 2 sources of wisdom can promote peace, love and the clarity of energetic truth for successful ways to promote each living systems' regeneration.
The blog site http://vlda.org/, the Voluntary Law Development Association, owned by Jonathan Jaech will be added to the proposed VOLUNTARY LAW MINISTRY web page and will be used as the foundation for voluntary international law.

_66__ VOTE COUNTING MINISTRY: The Vote Counting Ministry will make an annual award for the "United Coalition Secure Paper Ballot Award".

_67__ TREASURY MINISTRY: The Treasury Minister of the International Parliament will be accountable only to the ten executives of the International Parliament through a vote of confidence. The Treasury Ministry is where specific records and agreements are posted for the public. The Treasury Ministry will maintain all records for Senators (donor MIPs) and other financial records such as revenue inflow, Senator mailing addresses, contact information and rankings, bank account savings and expenditures.

_68__ MEDIATION AND CONCILIATION MINISTRY: Appeals of a name's removal action may be taken to the Mediation and Conciliation Service Minister where rules for such appeals will be written, voted upon and approved.
Should any financial compensation be asked for or awarded after an appeal had been heard and a ruling had been finalized by the International national Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service Minister which is charged with recommending such financial compensation, then the case can be taken to the All Party System Co.'s International Bureau's Ethics & Grievances Committee of Four where a determination of the exact amount can be made and executed.

_69__ United Coalition

_70__ Declare that all of the elected and appointed members of the International Parliament, all countries' national parliaments, all subsidiary super-state, mini-state and county micro-state parliaments, to be members of a national and international "Unity Coalition" or "United Coalition" effective November 5th, 2014.

_71__ The International Parliament's subsidiary Republic "Unity Coalition" elections shall be in two phases; one before the country's primaries and one after the country's primaries. That way, a strong emphasis can be placed on official state-recognized ballot-qualified and write-in candidates both before the primaries and after the primaries, and the dates are customized for each of the country's official primaries.

_72__ UNITY PLATFORM

_73__ Conduct an international Direct Democracy (DD) election which will elect planks to a "Unity Platform".

_74__ The promotion of the Unity Coalition's "Unity Platform" can used used as an example of teamwork. The team can be promoted as being dynamic so that every item is up for a continual "vote of confidence" by all the members, all the time. That way, the recruitment of new members can take place in order to collect more votes for improving the planks on the Unity Platform.

_75__ PLANKS OF THE PLATFORM: The ten elected executives shall elect the UNITY PLATFORM with a series of "planks" from all the items they pick and rank from the DD election.

Any delegate or visitor who, after being advised by the Chair, persists in an obvious attempt to divert the meeting from its intended purpose, or who otherwise attempts to disrupt the proceedings, shall be subject to disciplinary action and expulsion by the Chairperson.

_84__ AGENDA

_85__ AGENDA Selection of Agenda Items. Agenda items shall be selected by the Executive Committee. Once selected, these items are fixed for the duration of the conference and no other items will be discussed.

_86__ ORDER OF CONSIDERATION OF AGENDA ITEMS: Agenda items will be considered in the order in which they appear in the agenda eballot, unless that order is altered by a majority of the Committee.
The first set of agenda items approved by the majority (6 of ten minimum) will be known as "RESOLUTION NUMBER 2".
As new Executives are elected, the incoming executives will be asked to approve (or decline) all previous RESOLUTIONS and should the number of approving executives falls below a 6/10ths majority of Executives then the RESOLUTION is considered unelected, invalid and withdrawn. Only resolutions that retain a majority support of the Ten Executives can be considered approved.
New executives have 60 days following the election of their name to approve all RESOLUTIONS beginning with RESOLUTION NUMBER 2, 3, 4, etc. and RESOLUTION NUMBER 1 is not affected by incoming and outgoing executives because the majority coalition electing RESOLUTION NUMBER 1 consists of MIPs of whom Executives may be one.

_87__ PRIOR APPROVED RESOLUTIONS: Order of Consideration of Prior-Approved Resolutions. Prior-approved resolutions are resolutions that were received by the specified deadline and were deemed appropriate by the staff. They will receive priority over other resolutions. The order of appearance of resolutions before the Committee is determined by the date in which they were received, and is listed under the appropriate committee topic in that order in the resolution book by the Secretary. When the Chair opens debate on any agenda item, any delegate may move for consideration of an approved resolution on the agenda item that has been submitted to the chair with signatories of 1/8 of the delegations present. If the motion is seconded, the Chair will direct the committee to an immediate vote without debate on the motion, a majority being required for consideration. If no resolution receives a majority vote in favor of consideration, the Committee will automatically have before it for consideration the first resolution in the resolution book under that agenda item that has been received by the chair with the appropriate number of signatories.

_88__ CONSIDERATION OF RESOLUTIONS WITHOUT PRIOR APPROVAL: Resolutions that were not received by the specified deadline may still be considered, but not until 1/2 of the prior approved resolutions on the agenda item have been considered. For a resolution without prior approval to be considered, it must relate to the committee topic currently being debated, be submitted to the chair with signatories of 1/8 of the delegations present, and the delegate must supply enough copies of the resolution for each delegation present. Once these conditions have been met, any delegate may move for consideration of the resolution. If the motion is seconded, the chair will direct the committee to an immediate vote without debate on the motion, a majority being required for consideration.

_89__ SUBSTANTIVE PROPOSALS: Delegates will receive selected resolutions for consideration no later than at the time of the conference registration. The delegates must submit resolutions in the proper form by the deadline set by the Executive Committee.

_90__ Reporting Resolutions to the Parliament. The Chair of each committee shall report resolutions passed by that committee to the Parliament for its consideration. If a committee fails to approve a resolution on an agenda item, it shall submit a "Declaration of No Report" on that agenda item. That topic area will not be considered by the Parliament.

_91__ Amendments. All amendments to resolutions must be signed by one sponsoring delegation and at least one other seconding delegation; they must be submitted on an official amendment form for approval by the Legal Counsel and must be labeled with an identifying number by the Secretary. Secondary amendments and amendments by substitution are not acceptable. Obvious typographical efforts will be brought to the Committee's attention and collected by the Chair with no vote required. To move an amendment to the floor, recognition by the Chair and introduction of the amendment will suffice; no vote shall be required. Once an amendment has been brought to the floor, the Committee shall consider only the amendments and not the Resolutions until final action on the amendment has been taken (except to the extent that the amendment pertains to the Resolution).

_92__ Definition of Amendment and Voting on Amendments. An amendment is a motion that adds to, deletes from, or revises any part of a resolution. A series of alterations proposed by a single delegation to the same resolution shall be considered as a single amendment unless a motion is made to divide it.

_93__ Closure of Debate. A delegate may move to close debate at any time on any matter. Such a motion closes all substantive debate on the matters before the body at that time, except when such a motion would interrupt a speaker. Two delegates may speak against closure, and the motion will then be put to a vote. During debate on an amendment, a delegate may move for closure of debate on the resolution. If closure passes, then the amendment shall be voted on first followed by the resolution.

_94__ Move a Resolution to the Floor. Used to bring an approved resolution to the floor, this motion may not interrupt a speaker and is not debatable. No second is required.

_95__ DEBATE AND SPEECH GUIDELINES: Speeches. No delegate may address the committee without having previously obtained the permission of the Chair. The Chair shall call upon speakers in the order in which they signify their desire to speak. Delegates may not interrupt a speaker except on a point of order or point of personal privilege. Abusing these rights may be considered violations of diplomatic courtesy, and can result in disciplinary action taken by the chair. Motions should be made at the conclusion of the speaker's remarks; by making a motion, the speaker yields the floor.

_96__ Time Limit on Debate. The committee or the Chair may limit or extend the time allotted to each speaker and the number of times each delegate may speak on a proposal. There may be one speaker in favor and one opposed to the limitation/extension.

_97__ Right of Reply. During debate, the Chair may accord the right of reply to any delegate if a speech by another delegate contains unusual or extraordinary language clearly insulting to personal or national dignity. The decision granting a right of reply may not be appealed. Requests for a right of reply shall be in writing to the Chair. The Chair will limit the time for the reply. There shall be no reply to a reply.

_98__ POINTS - IN ORDER OF PRIORITY

Point of Order. If, during the discussion of any matter, a delegate believes that the committee is proceeding in a manner contrary to these GUIDELINES, he or she may rise to a point of order. The delegate so rising will be immediately recognized by the Chair and the point ruled upon. A delegate rising to a point of order may not speak on the substance of any matter under discussion.

Point of Personal Privilege. If a delegate wishes to raise a question or make a request relating to the organization of the meeting, personal comfort, or the conduct of fellow delegates or staff, he/she may rise to a point of personal privilege. When a delegate rises on privilege, the Chair shall take such action as is necessary.

Point of Parliamentary Inquiry. A point of parliamentary inquiry is directed to the Chair for information or guidance on procedure. This point may not interrupt the speaker. It is a question and does not require seconding or allow for debate. Replies by the Chair are not appealable.

Point of Information. If a delegate wishes to obtain a clarification of procedure or a statement of the matter before the committee, the delegate may address a point of information to the Chair. During debate, if a delegate wishes to ask a question of the speaker, a request to question the speaker may be made in the form of a point of information directed to the Chair after the speaker consents to be questioned, all questions and replies are made through the Chair. Delegates shall not interrupt a speaker on a point of information.

_99__ MOTIONS - ORDER OF PROCEDURAL MOTIONS

The motions as indicated in the Short Form of Points and Motions have precedence, in the order given, over all other proposals or motions before the committee.

Adjournment of Debate. During the discussion of any matter, a delegate may move the adjournment of debate on that matter. One delegate may speak in favor of the motion and one opposed. The motion shall then be put to an immediate vote. Adjournment of debate on a resolution or amendment has the effect of tabling that item and moves the committee on to the next order of business. See also 8.9 on Reconsideration.

Closure of Debate. A delegate may move to close debate at any time on any matter. Such a motion closes all substantive debate on the matters before the body at that time, except when such a motion would interrupt a speaker. Two delegates may speak against closure, and the motion will then be put to a vote. During debate on an amendment, a delegate may move for closure of debate on the resolution. if closure passes, then the amendment shall be voted on first followed by the resolution.

Move a Resolution to the Floor. Used to bring an approved resolution to the floor, this motion may not interrupt a speaker and is not debatable. No second is required.

Suspension of the Meeting. During the discussion of any matter, a delegate may move to suspend the meeting. Suspending a meeting recesses it until the time specified in the motion; the Chair may request the mover to modify the time. When the committee reconvenes it will continue with its business from the point at which suspension was moved.

Adjournment of the Meeting. The motion of adjournment means that all business of the committee has been completed, and that the committee win not reconvene until the next Annual Session. The Chair may refuse to recognize a motion to adjourn the meeting if the Committee still has business before it. A motion to adjourn is not debatable, and will be put to an immediate vote.

Decisions of Competence. Any motion calling for a decision on the competence of the Committee to discuss or adopt a proposal shall be put to a vote before the vote is taken on the proposal in question. If a Committee decides it is not competent to discuss or vote on an amendment or resolution, the effect is the same as adjourning debate on the matter. See also 8.9 on Reconsideration.

Withdrawal of Motions. A motion may be withdrawn by its proposer at any time before voting on it has begun, provided the motion has not been amended. A withdrawn motion may be reintroduced by any other delegation.

Reconsideration of Proposals. When a proposal has been adopted, or rejected through a vote of adjournment or "no competence", it may be reconsidered at the same session by an affirmative vote of two-thirds of the members present and voting. The motion to reconsider must be made by a delegation which originally voted on the prevailing side of the proposal; thus, reconsideration may be moved only on the proposals voted on by roll-call.

Division of the Question. A motion to divide the question, proposing that parts of an amendment or resolution be voted on separately, is in order at any time prior to commencement of voting on the amendment or resolution. Motions to divide shall apply only to operative clauses. Permission to speak on the motion shall be granted to one speaker in favor and one opposed, after which there shall be an immediate vote. The first motion for division to receive a majority vote shall become the final manner in which the proposal is presented. Those parts of the proposal which are approved shall be put to a vote as a whole. If all operative clauses of a proposal have been rejected, the proposal as a whole has been rejected.

Dilatory Motions. The Chair may rule as dilatory, and therefore out of order, any motion repeating or closely approximating a substantive measure on which the committee has already rendered an opinion. Such rulings can not be appealed.

Appealing a Decision of the Chair. Rulings of the chair can be appealed unless otherwise specified in these GUIDELINES. Appeals can be debated by one speaker in favor and one opposed.

_103__ Simple Majority. Unless otherwise specified in these GUIDELINES, decisions in the Committee shall be made by a majority vote of those members present and voting. The phrase "MSPs present and voting" refers to members casting ranked choice votes. Members which cast a final abstention are not voting. If a vote is equally divided between two sums of the same value, the motion fails.

_104__ Method of Voting. The Committee shall use ranked choice voting (RCV). The Chair, however, may grant a request for a roll-call vote; the decision to grant such a request is not appealable. All final votes on resolutions shall be taken by roll-call; the roll shall be called in English alphabetical order beginning with a person selected at random by the Secretary. Delegates shall reply "#1," or "abstain," or "abstain from the order of voting." A member may abstain from the order of voting once during the roll-call; a second abstention from the order of voting will be recorded as an abstention. Rights of explanation are permitted on roll-call votes and may be limited in time by the Chair. At the end of roll-call, but before rights of explanation and the subsequent announcement of the vote, the Secretary will ask for changes of vote. A delegation may not change from "0" to "#1", or "#1 with right of explanation" or from "0" to "0 with right of explanation." Those abstaining may be accorded rights of explanation. The result of the vote shall be inserted into the Committee record.

_105__ ONLINE VOTING: The International Parliament will conduct elections using online voting and all votes will be posted where they can be easily viewed by the public with the information as to who had cast the vote.

_106__ Conduct during Voting. Immediately prior to a vote, the Chair shall describe to the Committee the proposal to be voted on, and shall explain the consequence of a 1 or 0 vote. Voting shall begin upon the chair's declaration and shall end when the results of the vote are announced.

_109__ OPERATIVE CLAUSES are set out to achieve the committee's main policy goals on the topic.
Each operative clause begins with a number and ends with a semicolon (the final clause ends with a period).
Operative clauses should be organized in a logical progression, and each clause should contain a single idea or policy proposal.
Keep in mind that all resolutions except those passed by the simple majority of the executive are non-binding.
As a rule of thumb, good resolutions usually have an equal number or more operative phrases than preambulatory phrases.

Upon approval of this bylaw item, all Senators' current donation levels,
shall have their previous fee levels apply retroactively to new benefits
under the same five fee levels with corresponding cost payments.

"Voting Stoppage"

Whenever a financial crisis occurs where the costs for paying basic maintenance of the International Parliament are not being met, including the costs of domain hosting, web design and obligations to all of the Senators, then the Treasury and/or Vote Counting Ministry can place end to all introductions of free membership sign ups of Members of International Parliament (MIPs) and other free services provided by the Vote Counting Ministry and this ending will be known as a "voting stoppage".

This bylaw item can also affect the internal Cabinet voting by Ministers, but it will not include/affect "votes of confidence" by the MIPs, voting by Senators current in dues and the voting for election of Cabinet Ministers (parliamentary go-ahead) by the Ten Executives.

The voting stoppage will terminate either upon the recommendation/consensus to end it by both the Treasury and Vote Counting Ministries, or once the numbers of Senators reaches the same number of free MIPs within the general International Parliament's assembly membership.

Diplomatic Passports

Some ministers and deputies will be traveling a lot abroad. At the airports and borders a diplomatic passport would make sense. Even for the professional legitimacy to foreign politicians.

ID Cards

For activities within the country an ID card is sufficient. However, a professionally designed plastic card should be used here. Since the International Parliament nevertheless plays an important role in the world standard, you should already pay attention to a professional public image.

_38__ Once the top Senator seats are assigned based on ranking of donation level, then lower ranked donors "spill over" into the "Senator MPs" section of the subsidiary Republic of Earth, the country from which the donor originated.

_39__ The Senator's donation will be recorded and should the Senator ever wish to "stand down", then the donation amount will be not be refunded.

_40__ The numbers of seats for Senators shall never be more than the number of free elected members of International Parliament (MIPs).

_41__ The Senators may vote on Senate guidelines and decisions from time to time but there is no requirement for such votes which are voluntary only. These compilation of votes will be conducted only by the Senators themselves.

_42__ Should a MIP who had been elected to a free seat, then be unelected and their name is no longer an elected free member, then their name will be automatically reinstated as a Senator, BoD, committee member and/or the same particular seat title in any subsidiary Republic of Earth, if their donation remained on the International Parliament's records.

_43__ All Senators shall have access to all financial records for the International Parliament. More detailed information which isn't available on the Treasury Ministry's web page will be made available within 90 days to Senators when a request is made in writing to the Treasury Minister.

_44__ All payments are to be in US dollars only unless pre-approval is obtained from the Treasury Ministry.

_45__ The International Parliament will not ever hold any election in a single- winner district where a single-winner decision or name is elected.

_46__ Ballot Preparation

_47__ SPACE FOR THREE OR MORE WRITE-IN choices must be provided on each and every ballot, in all elections.

_48__ CATEGORIZATION AND PARTY NAMES The first and most important criterion in determining the nominee's party/category is the nominee's most recently requested or declared party/category in Parliament matters. The second most important criterion in determining the nominee's party/category is determined by the nominee's state's records, as written by the member while registering to vote. Appointed members may be categorized with any party/category that they wish, and the party/category of all members is considered to be the true one. Elected members may decide to change or switch their party/categorization at any time by proclamation. Members automatically qualify for the ballot in the next election cycle under the party/category of their choice.

_49__ First and last names are preferred, however all names nominated will be permitted on the ballot as well as the party/category of the nominee. If party/category is not known, the label "[Info. Not Avail.]" will be used. A nominee's name (and thus identity) may appear on the ballot only once, so fusion voting is not allowed. All world citizens who had signed up since "RESOLUTION NUMBER 1" was first approved on 10/27/2014 will be automatically added as MIPs retroactively within seven days after the approval of this bylaw item #39.

_50__ RESIGNATIONS. When any elected member, executive or minister, stands down, resigns, retires, or dies - the name is deleted. Then the next highest ranked name is automatically elected to the seat in their stead.

_51__ When a candidate who has chosen to stand down but then wishes to return to the position which they had departed, then they must first be re-affirmed by all the voters who had previously cast a vote for them.

_52__ TEN EXECUTIVES

_53__ MIPs: Once elected, all new Members of International Parliament (MIPs) may change their vote as a "vote of confidence" for the ten executives into perpetuity.

_54__ THE VOICE of the International Parliament will be the ten executives.

_55__ Each of the elected ten executives may pick a seat title once elected.

_56__ The ten executives elect up to sixty full Cabinet Ministers and sixty Deputy Cabinet Ministers using the "parliamentary go-ahead.

_57__ The International Parliament's ten executives agree to rank all names nominated by each of the other nine executives, thus guaranteeing that each of the ten executives elects 1/10th of the 60 cabinet ministers and this is known as the "parliamentary go-ahead".

_58__ THE TEN EXECUTIVES recruit as many people as possible who will work in the Cabinet to run the efforts, elects the planks on the platform and run the parliament's efforts free from political conflict or bias. The executives do not control who gets elected to the general assembly.

_59__ The ten executives of the International Parliament (IP) will serve as "Founding Executives" on the unity business entity named "All Party System Co., International Bureau", which is established in order to report all unifying news, business, financial matters, vote counting and results of vote counting of the IP to the public and to serve as a store for generating sales of products and services..

_60__ SIXTY CABINET MINISTERS

_61__ MINISTRY: A simple majority vote by at least six of the ten executives establishes the parliamentary go-ahead and will elect new Ministers, even without the parliamentary go-ahead.

_62__ MINISTRY DIRECTORS: Ministries may elect up to fifty Directors and any number of resolutions, agenda items, guidelines and administrators. The fifty Directors must be elected in one at-large district and their titles as "Directors" may be any title, for example each director may pick their own title too.

_63__ All International national Cabinet Ministers must be live, real people and no avatars or anonymous names may be used by the elected Cabinet Ministers. Only real names can be used and verification of the member's true name may be requested when such verifications are of interest from anyone of the ten executives.

_64__ HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES MINISTRY: The book "Know Thyself, Your Body's Wisdom for Living Consciously" will be added as a guide to the proposed Health and Human Services Ministry web page. For many ages, humanity has been confused about what decisions regenerate and degenerate our living systems. The Body itself has always held this wisdom of natural laws for our organ/gland functioning on 253 circuits of personal powers (but not always available until infrared could shine the light on it). The Body's own immense wisdom can show us how our next decision degenerates us or regenerates us (based on 40 years of scientific research using infrared technology that can be tracked, measured and decoded by the Language of the Body itself). This Self Evident and undeniable truth from our energetic design makes it an unparalleled guide to help humans make decisions (about voting, laws, or new customs, etc.) that can regenerate us from within as well as from without. (http://www.consciousnesssystems.com [1] to read the book). Also, VOLUNTARY LAW: The blog site http://vlda.org/, the Voluntary Law Development Association, owned by Jonathan Jaech will be added to the proposed

_65__ VOLUNTARY LAW MINISTRY: The Voluntary Law Ministry web page and can accompany 'Know Thyself, Your Body's Wisdom for Living Consciously' (that can both be used as the foundational principles for voluntary international law). These 2 sources of wisdom can promote peace, love and the clarity of energetic truth for successful ways to promote each living systems' regeneration.
The blog site http://vlda.org/, the Voluntary Law Development Association, owned by Jonathan Jaech will be added to the proposed VOLUNTARY LAW MINISTRY web page and will be used as the foundation for voluntary international law.

_66__ VOTE COUNTING MINISTRY: The Vote Counting Ministry will make an annual award for the "United Coalition Secure Paper Ballot Award".

_67__ TREASURY MINISTRY: The Treasury Minister of the International Parliament will be accountable only to the ten executives of the International Parliament through a vote of confidence. The Treasury Ministry is where specific records and agreements are posted for the public. The Treasury Ministry will maintain all records for Senators (donor MIPs) and other financial records such as revenue inflow, Senator mailing addresses, contact information and rankings, bank account savings and expenditures.

_68__ MEDIATION AND CONCILIATION MINISTRY: Appeals of a name's removal action may be taken to the Mediation and Conciliation Service Minister where rules for such appeals will be written, voted upon and approved.
Should any financial compensation be asked for or awarded after an appeal had been heard and a ruling had been finalized by the International national Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service Minister which is charged with recommending such financial compensation, then the case can be taken to the All Party System Co.'s International Bureau's Ethics & Grievances Committee of Four where a determination of the exact amount can be made and executed.

_69__ United Coalition

_70__ Declare that all of the elected and appointed members of the International Parliament, all countries' national parliaments, all subsidiary super-state, mini-state and county micro-state parliaments, to be members of a national and international "Unity Coalition" or "United Coalition" effective November 5th, 2014.

_71__ The International Parliament's subsidiary Republic "Unity Coalition" elections shall be in two phases; one before the country's primaries and one after the country's primaries. That way, a strong emphasis can be placed on official state-recognized ballot-qualified and write-in candidates both before the primaries and after the primaries, and the dates are customized for each of the country's official primaries.

_72__ UNITY PLATFORM

_73__ Conduct an international Direct Democracy (DD) election which will elect planks to a "Unity Platform".

_74__ The promotion of the Unity Coalition's "Unity Platform" can used used as an example of teamwork. The team can be promoted as being dynamic so that every item is up for a continual "vote of confidence" by all the members, all the time. That way, the recruitment of new members can take place in order to collect more votes for improving the planks on the Unity Platform.

_75__ PLANKS OF THE PLATFORM: The ten elected executives shall elect the UNITY PLATFORM with a series of "planks" from all the items they pick and rank from the DD election.

_76__ Guideline of Priority and Procedure

_77__ GENERAL PROVISIONS: Guideline of Priority and Procedure. The GUIDELINES contained on this web page shall be the official first GUIDELINES of procedure for the International Parliament and will be used for all transactions of business once ratified by a majority of the Members of Parliament (MPs). These GUIDELINES will take precedence over any other set of GUIDELINES.

_78__ GUIDELINE CHANGES: The Executive Committee reserves the right to make changes in these GUIDELINES by 6/10th vote and to present these changes to the delegates/members at any time. All changes should accommodate the desires or complaints of the MPs or staff so as to improve the conduct of business online and offline.

_79__ EXECUTIVES: The Executives of the International Parliament may select or approve persons to serve as Chairpersons, Legal Counsels, and Secretaries for each committee and any other position to help conduct the business.

_80__ CHAIR PERSON: Absence of Chairperson. If the Chair should find it necessary to be absent during any part of a committee meeting, he/she shall designate an individual (preferably the Legal Counsel) to assume his/her duties with the same authority.
General Authority of the Chairperson. In addition to exercising such authority conferred upon the Chair elsewhere in these GUIDELINES, the Chair shall declare the opening and closing of each session of the committee, direct its discussions, ensure observance of these GUIDELINES, accord the right to speak, put questions to a vote, and announce decisions of the committee.

_81__ Statements by the Executives. The ten elected Executives, or any person designated by the ten elected Executives, may at any time make oral or written statements to a committee.

_82__ MEMBERS: Number of Accredited Delegates. The number of delegates allowed on any delegation of the Parliament shall be limited to MIPs and Donor MIPs only.

_83__ DIPLOMATIC COURTESY: All delegates MUST accord all other delegates diplomatic courtesy at all times. Any delegate or visitor who, after being advised by the Chair, persists in an obvious attempt to divert the meeting from its intended purpose, or who otherwise attempts to disrupt the proceedings, shall be subject to disciplinary action and expulsion by the Chairperson.

_84__ AGENDA

_85__ AGENDA Selection of Agenda Items. Agenda items shall be selected by the Executive Committee. Once selected, these items are fixed for the duration of the conference and no other items will be discussed.

_86__ ORDER OF CONSIDERATION OF AGENDA ITEMS: Agenda items will be considered in the order in which they appear in the agenda eballot, unless that order is altered by a majority of the Committee.
The first set of agenda items approved by the majority (6 of ten minimum) will be known as "RESOLUTION NUMBER 2".
As new Executives are elected, the incoming executives will be asked to approve (or decline) all previous RESOLUTIONS and should the number of approving executives falls below a 6/10ths majority of Executives then the RESOLUTION is considered unelected, invalid and withdrawn. Only resolutions that retain a majority support of the Ten Executives can be considered approved.
New executives have 60 days following the election of their name to approve all RESOLUTIONS beginning with RESOLUTION NUMBER 2, 3, 4, etc. and RESOLUTION NUMBER 1 is not affected by incoming and outgoing executives because the majority coalition electing RESOLUTION NUMBER 1 consists of MIPs of whom Executives may be one.

_87__ PRIOR APPROVED RESOLUTIONS: Order of Consideration of Prior-Approved Resolutions. Prior-approved resolutions are resolutions that were received by the specified deadline and were deemed appropriate by the staff. They will receive priority over other resolutions. The order of appearance of resolutions before the Committee is determined by the date in which they were received, and is listed under the appropriate committee topic in that order in the resolution book by the Secretary. When the Chair opens debate on any agenda item, any delegate may move for consideration of an approved resolution on the agenda item that has been submitted to the chair with signatories of 1/8 of the delegations present. If the motion is seconded, the Chair will direct the committee to an immediate vote without debate on the motion, a majority being required for consideration. If no resolution receives a majority vote in favor of consideration, the Committee will automatically have before it for consideration the first resolution in the resolution book under that agenda item that has been received by the chair with the appropriate number of signatories.

_88__ CONSIDERATION OF RESOLUTIONS WITHOUT PRIOR APPROVAL: Resolutions that were not received by the specified deadline may still be considered, but not until 1/2 of the prior approved resolutions on the agenda item have been considered. For a resolution without prior approval to be considered, it must relate to the committee topic currently being debated, be submitted to the chair with signatories of 1/8 of the delegations present, and the delegate must supply enough copies of the resolution for each delegation present. Once these conditions have been met, any delegate may move for consideration of the resolution. If the motion is seconded, the chair will direct the committee to an immediate vote without debate on the motion, a majority being required for consideration.

_89__ SUBSTANTIVE PROPOSALS: Delegates will receive selected resolutions for consideration no later than at the time of the conference registration. The delegates must submit resolutions in the proper form by the deadline set by the Executive Committee.

_90__ Reporting Resolutions to the Parliament. The Chair of each committee shall report resolutions passed by that committee to the Parliament for its consideration. If a committee fails to approve a resolution on an agenda item, it shall submit a "Declaration of No Report" on that agenda item. That topic area will not be considered by the Parliament.

_91__ Amendments. All amendments to resolutions must be signed by one sponsoring delegation and at least one other seconding delegation; they must be submitted on an official amendment form for approval by the Legal Counsel and must be labeled with an identifying number by the Secretary. Secondary amendments and amendments by substitution are not acceptable. Obvious typographical efforts will be brought to the Committee's attention and collected by the Chair with no vote required. To move an amendment to the floor, recognition by the Chair and introduction of the amendment will suffice; no vote shall be required. Once an amendment has been brought to the floor, the Committee shall consider only the amendments and not the Resolutions until final action on the amendment has been taken (except to the extent that the amendment pertains to the Resolution).

_92__ Definition of Amendment and Voting on Amendments. An amendment is a motion that adds to, deletes from, or revises any part of a resolution. A series of alterations proposed by a single delegation to the same resolution shall be considered as a single amendment unless a motion is made to divide it.

_93__ Closure of Debate. A delegate may move to close debate at any time on any matter. Such a motion closes all substantive debate on the matters before the body at that time, except when such a motion would interrupt a speaker. Two delegates may speak against closure, and the motion will then be put to a vote. During debate on an amendment, a delegate may move for closure of debate on the resolution. If closure passes, then the amendment shall be voted on first followed by the resolution.

_94__ Move a Resolution to the Floor. Used to bring an approved resolution to the floor, this motion may not interrupt a speaker and is not debatable. No second is required.

_95__ DEBATE AND SPEECH GUIDELINES: Speeches. No delegate may address the committee without having previously obtained the permission of the Chair. The Chair shall call upon speakers in the order in which they signify their desire to speak. Delegates may not interrupt a speaker except on a point of order or point of personal privilege. Abusing these rights may be considered violations of diplomatic courtesy, and can result in disciplinary action taken by the chair. Motions should be made at the conclusion of the speaker's remarks; by making a motion, the speaker yields the floor.

_96__ Time Limit on Debate. The committee or the Chair may limit or extend the time allotted to each speaker and the number of times each delegate may speak on a proposal. There may be one speaker in favor and one opposed to the limitation/extension.

_97__ Right of Reply. During debate, the Chair may accord the right of reply to any delegate if a speech by another delegate contains unusual or extraordinary language clearly insulting to personal or national dignity. The decision granting a right of reply may not be appealed. Requests for a right of reply shall be in writing to the Chair. The Chair will limit the time for the reply. There shall be no reply to a reply.

_98__ POINTS - IN ORDER OF PRIORITY

Point of Order. If, during the discussion of any matter, a delegate believes that the committee is proceeding in a manner contrary to these GUIDELINES, he or she may rise to a point of order. The delegate so rising will be immediately recognized by the Chair and the point ruled upon. A delegate rising to a point of order may not speak on the substance of any matter under discussion.

Point of Personal Privilege. If a delegate wishes to raise a question or make a request relating to the organization of the meeting, personal comfort, or the conduct of fellow delegates or staff, he/she may rise to a point of personal privilege. When a delegate rises on privilege, the Chair shall take such action as is necessary.

Point of Parliamentary Inquiry. A point of parliamentary inquiry is directed to the Chair for information or guidance on procedure. This point may not interrupt the speaker. It is a question and does not require seconding or allow for debate. Replies by the Chair are not appealable.

Point of Information. If a delegate wishes to obtain a clarification of procedure or a statement of the matter before the committee, the delegate may address a point of information to the Chair. During debate, if a delegate wishes to ask a question of the speaker, a request to question the speaker may be made in the form of a point of information directed to the Chair after the speaker consents to be questioned, all questions and replies are made through the Chair. Delegates shall not interrupt a speaker on a point of information.

_99__ MOTIONS - ORDER OF PROCEDURAL MOTIONS

The motions as indicated in the Short Form of Points and Motions have precedence, in the order given, over all other proposals or motions before the committee.

Adjournment of Debate. During the discussion of any matter, a delegate may move the adjournment of debate on that matter. One delegate may speak in favor of the motion and one opposed. The motion shall then be put to an immediate vote. Adjournment of debate on a resolution or amendment has the effect of tabling that item and moves the committee on to the next order of business. See also 8.9 on Reconsideration.

Closure of Debate. A delegate may move to close debate at any time on any matter. Such a motion closes all substantive debate on the matters before the body at that time, except when such a motion would interrupt a speaker. Two delegates may speak against closure, and the motion will then be put to a vote. During debate on an amendment, a delegate may move for closure of debate on the resolution. if closure passes, then the amendment shall be voted on first followed by the resolution.

Move a Resolution to the Floor. Used to bring an approved resolution to the floor, this motion may not interrupt a speaker and is not debatable. No second is required.

Suspension of the Meeting. During the discussion of any matter, a delegate may move to suspend the meeting. Suspending a meeting recesses it until the time specified in the motion; the Chair may request the mover to modify the time. When the committee reconvenes it will continue with its business from the point at which suspension was moved.

Adjournment of the Meeting. The motion of adjournment means that all business of the committee has been completed, and that the committee win not reconvene until the next Annual Session. The Chair may refuse to recognize a motion to adjourn the meeting if the Committee still has business before it. A motion to adjourn is not debatable, and will be put to an immediate vote.

Decisions of Competence. Any motion calling for a decision on the competence of the Committee to discuss or adopt a proposal shall be put to a vote before the vote is taken on the proposal in question. If a Committee decides it is not competent to discuss or vote on an amendment or resolution, the effect is the same as adjourning debate on the matter. See also 8.9 on Reconsideration.

Withdrawal of Motions. A motion may be withdrawn by its proposer at any time before voting on it has begun, provided the motion has not been amended. A withdrawn motion may be reintroduced by any other delegation.

Reconsideration of Proposals. When a proposal has been adopted, or rejected through a vote of adjournment or "no competence", it may be reconsidered at the same session by an affirmative vote of two-thirds of the members present and voting. The motion to reconsider must be made by a delegation which originally voted on the prevailing side of the proposal; thus, reconsideration may be moved only on the proposals voted on by roll-call.

Division of the Question. A motion to divide the question, proposing that parts of an amendment or resolution be voted on separately, is in order at any time prior to commencement of voting on the amendment or resolution. Motions to divide shall apply only to operative clauses. Permission to speak on the motion shall be granted to one speaker in favor and one opposed, after which there shall be an immediate vote. The first motion for division to receive a majority vote shall become the final manner in which the proposal is presented. Those parts of the proposal which are approved shall be put to a vote as a whole. If all operative clauses of a proposal have been rejected, the proposal as a whole has been rejected.

Dilatory Motions. The Chair may rule as dilatory, and therefore out of order, any motion repeating or closely approximating a substantive measure on which the committee has already rendered an opinion. Such rulings can not be appealed.

Appealing a Decision of the Chair. Rulings of the chair can be appealed unless otherwise specified in these GUIDELINES. Appeals can be debated by one speaker in favor and one opposed.

_102__ VOTING METHODS AND RIGHTS: Each member delegation shall have one vote in each Committee in which it is represented. No delegate may cast a vote on behalf of another member.

_103__ Simple Majority. Unless otherwise specified in these GUIDELINES, decisions in the Committee shall be made by a majority vote of those members present and voting. The phrase "MSPs present and voting" refers to members casting ranked choice votes. Members which cast a final abstention are not voting. If a vote is equally divided between two sums of the same value, the motion fails.

_104__ Method of Voting. The Committee shall use ranked choice voting (RCV). The Chair, however, may grant a request for a roll-call vote; the decision to grant such a request is not appealable. All final votes on resolutions shall be taken by roll-call; the roll shall be called in English alphabetical order beginning with a person selected at random by the Secretary. Delegates shall reply "#1," or "abstain," or "abstain from the order of voting." A member may abstain from the order of voting once during the roll-call; a second abstention from the order of voting will be recorded as an abstention. Rights of explanation are permitted on roll-call votes and may be limited in time by the Chair. At the end of roll-call, but before rights of explanation and the subsequent announcement of the vote, the Secretary will ask for changes of vote. A delegation may not change from "0" to "#1", or "#1 with right of explanation" or from "0" to "0 with right of explanation." Those abstaining may be accorded rights of explanation. The result of the vote shall be inserted into the Committee record.

_105__ ONLINE VOTING: The International Parliament will conduct elections using online voting and all votes will be posted where they can be easily viewed by the public with the information as to who had cast the vote.

_106__ Conduct during Voting. Immediately prior to a vote, the Chair shall describe to the Committee the proposal to be voted on, and shall explain the consequence of a 1 or 0 vote. Voting shall begin upon the chair's declaration and shall end when the results of the vote are announced. Once voting has begun, no delegate shall interrupt the voting except on a point of order or information concerning the actual conduct of the vote, or on a point of personal privilege.

And, the same goes for what happens at the state level.

_9__ The polling location should serve a maximum of 1,000 voters and Election Day should be a national holiday with employers, if necessary, having to arrange for special accommodations for employees that must work, as with hospitals.

Additional Measures
Once 500 Members of International Parliament (MIPs) are elected, the following rules automatically take effect:
13.a Registered voters must meet stricter verification standards.
13.b Elected MIPs must also meet the same stricter verification standards.
13.c Registered voters and elected members must provide a signature drawn with black ink which will be used
for ID and verification and validation at conventions and this signature must also be provided before any vote takes effect.
The issuance of the ID is not required for the registered voter to participate, but the signature must be on file.
13.d Signatures will be stored in the International Parliament's files in alphabetical order or last names.
13.e When funds are available, the signature will be copied to the background of an ID card. Photo
of the voter may also be added for an additional fee charged to ID holder. Each voters ID number will
be included on the ID card.
13.f ID cards may be provided to Senators, beginning with Level Once Senators, followed by Level Two, Three, Four and Five, until all Senators hold ID cards.
13.g ID cards will not have the mailing address of the registered voter and/or elected MIPs and Senators.

a maximum of ten names. When more than ten names are correctly ranked in consecutive order on the ballot
or eballot then the first ten names are considered recipients of the ranked votes, but not names enumerated
number eleven (11) and after number eleven (11), which are affected. Once an automated voting system
is inplace, the limit of eleven rankings will not be required and will not be in effect.

_14__ General Counting, Balloting and Eballoting Guidelines for International Parliament Elections

_15__ RANKED VOTING ONLY: All voting and vote counting shall be in the form of ranked paper ballots only (and eballots when practical and verifiable). Consecutive numbers beginning with the #s 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. etc. must always be used when marking on (e)ballot of all alternative decisions or names. Deviation from this guideline will disqualify the ballot, and the ballot will be marked spoiled.

_16__ Pure proportional representation (PR) will be used.

_17__ THE SAINTE-LAGUE PARLIAMENT SYSTEM, Hagenbach-Bischoff method, under ranked choice voting, for seat allocation in all multi-seat districts:

Divide the election's total number of votes by the number of seats. This is the 1st quota.

Divide this quota into each candidate's votes, and round off to the nearest whole number. That's that candidate's seat allocation.

If, due to rounding, this awards a number of seats different from the desired number of seats, then adjust the quota slightly up or down, till, when paragraph two is carried out, it will award all seats.

_18__ Any resident of earth, nominee and/or proxy may observe the counting of the ballots. Volunteer counters will conduct the vote counting.

_19__ Choices marked on "eballots" are posted for public view and are not bound by confidentiality under the behavior of officers of the Parliament.

_20__ EBALLOTS are ballots cast via email and must be emailed to vvc "at" allpartysystem "dot" org, a private email address used by the secretary and observers for receiving such eballots. No reply email will be sent to voters who cast eballots other than a verification message, unless the voter indicates that he/she wishes to be self appointed to the www.international-parliament.org site or when a question regarding verification or validation is raised by a volunteer vote counter.

_21__ Volunteer vote counters may be added to the exploder email address vvc "at" allpartysystem "dot" org as a subscriber by sending the message "subscribe" to vvc "at" allpartysystem "dot" org.

_22__ Telephone voting is permissible, acceptable and verification and validations will be provided when requested.

_27__ Such ballots may be retype set or altered to specifically identify their select nominees' correct name and party affiliation. All ballots released to public used by the International Parliament's elected secretaries shall count as a legitimate ballot and shall be presumed to represent the correct and most current candidate name information.

_27__ BALLOT: ORDER OF NOMINEES of all names in the parliament elections and subsidiary parliament elections will be determined by the results caused by the voters' ranking of the nominees on the previous election's ballots. This is known as the correct consecutive order of nominee. Appointments and self-appointments will be listed chronologically.

_29__ NOMINEE ACCEPTANCE AND WRITE-INS: Only names who formally ACCEPT the nomination of their name, self write-in names and those currently already elected will qualify for the ballot/eballot for the International Parliament. There will be a cap at 500 names for the ballot/eballot for the free elections of MIPs.

_30__ A verifiable name and contact information must be provided in order to qualify as a nominee for the (e)ballot.

_31__ The final order of the parties/categories on the final prepared ballot will be determined by the nominees' party name/category and the parties/categories and will be listed on the ballot in alphabetical order.

_32__ TIES: Ties will be broken by holding a runoff election only when called by one of the two secretaries.

_33__ ONLY ONE SINGLE PARLIAMENTARY BALLOT, IS PERMITTED TO BE MARKED BY EACH WORLD RESIDENT: All living world citizens may vote one time and only one time.

* * *

Upon approval of this bylaw item, all Senators' current donation levels,
shall have their previous fee levels apply retroactively to new benefits
under the same five fee levels with corresponding cost payments.

"Voting Stoppage"

Whenever a financial crisis occurs where the costs for paying basic maintenance of the International Parliament are not being met, including the costs of domain hosting, web design and obligations to all of the Senators, then the Treasury and/or Vote Counting Ministry can place end to all introductions of free membership sign ups of Members of International Parliament (MIPs) and other free services provided by the Vote Counting Ministry and this ending will be known as a "voting stoppage".

This bylaw item can also affect the internal Cabinet voting by Ministers, but it will not include/affect "votes of confidence" by the MIPs, voting by Senators current in dues and the voting for election of Cabinet Ministers (parliamentary go-ahead) by the Ten Executives.

The voting stoppage will terminate either upon the recommendation/consensus to end it by both the Treasury and Vote Counting Ministries, or once the numbers of Senators reaches the same number of free MIPs within the general International Parliament's assembly membership.

Diplomatic Passports

Some ministers and deputies will be traveling a lot abroad. At the airports and borders a diplomatic passport would make sense. Even for the professional legitimacy to foreign politicians.

ID Cards

For activities within the country an ID card is sufficient. However, a professionally designed plastic card should be used here. Since the International Parliament nevertheless plays an important role in the world standard, you should already pay attention to a professional public image.

_38__ Once the top Senator seats are assigned based on ranking of donation level, then lower ranked donors "spill over" into the "Senator MPs" section of the subsidiary Republic of Earth, the country from which the donor originated.

_39__ The Senator's donation will be recorded and should the Senator ever wish to "stand down", then the donation amount will be not be refunded.

_40__ The numbers of seats for Senators shall never be more than the number of free elected members of International Parliament (MIPs).

_41__ The Senators may vote on Senate guidelines and decisions from time to time but there is no requirement for such votes which are voluntary only. These compilation of votes will be conducted only by the Senators themselves.

_42__ Should a MIP who had been elected to a free seat, then be unelected and their name is no longer an elected free member, then their name will be automatically reinstated as a Senator, BoD, committee member and/or the same particular seat title in any subsidiary Republic of Earth, if their donation remained on the International Parliament's records.

_43__ All Senators shall have access to all financial records for the International Parliament. More detailed information which isn't available on the Treasury Ministry's web page will be made available within 90 days to Senators when a request is made in writing to the Treasury Minister.

_44__ All payments are to be in US dollars only unless pre-approval is obtained from the Treasury Ministry.

_45__ The International Parliament will not ever hold any election in a single- winner district where a single-winner decision or name is elected.

_46__ Ballot Preparation

_47__ SPACE FOR THREE OR MORE WRITE-IN choices must be provided on each and every ballot, in all elections.

_48__ CATEGORIZATION AND PARTY NAMES The first and most important criterion in determining the nominee's party/category is the nominee's most recently requested or declared party/category in Parliament matters. The second most important criterion in determining the nominee's party/category is determined by the nominee's state's records, as written by the member while registering to vote. Appointed members may be categorized with any party/category that they wish, and the party/category of all members is considered to be the true one. Elected members may decide to change or switch their party/categorization at any time by proclamation. Members automatically qualify for the ballot in the next election cycle under the party/category of their choice.

_49__ First and last names are preferred, however all names nominated will be permitted on the ballot as well as the party/category of the nominee. If party/category is not known, the label "[Info. Not Avail.]" will be used. A nominee's name (and thus identity) may appear on the ballot only once, so fusion voting is not allowed. All world citizens who had signed up since "RESOLUTION NUMBER 1" was first approved on 10/27/2014 will be automatically added as MIPs retroactively within seven days after the approval of this bylaw item #39.

_50__ RESIGNATIONS. When any elected member, executive or minister, stands down, resigns, retires, or dies - the name is deleted. Then the next highest ranked name is automatically elected to the seat in their stead.

_51__ When a candidate who has chosen to stand down but then wishes to return to the position which they had departed, then they must first be re-affirmed by all the voters who had previously cast a vote for them.

_52__ TEN EXECUTIVES

_53__ MIPs: Once elected, all new Members of International Parliament (MIPs) may change their vote as a "vote of confidence" for the ten executives into perpetuity.

_54__ THE VOICE of the International Parliament will be the ten executives.

_55__ Each of the elected ten executives may pick a seat title once elected.

_56__ The ten executives elect up to sixty full Cabinet Ministers and sixty Deputy Cabinet Ministers using the "parliamentary go-ahead.

_57__ The International Parliament's ten executives agree to rank all names nominated by each of the other nine executives, thus guaranteeing that each of the ten executives elects 1/10th of the 60 cabinet ministers and this is known as the "parliamentary go-ahead".

_58__ THE TEN EXECUTIVES recruit as many people as possible who will work in the Cabinet to run the efforts, elects the planks on the platform and run the parliament's efforts free from political conflict or bias. The executives do not control who gets elected to the general assembly.

_59__ The ten executives of the International Parliament (IP) will serve as "Founding Executives" on the unity business entity named "All Party System Co., International Bureau", which is established in order to report all unifying news, business, financial matters, vote counting and results of vote counting of the IP to the public and to serve as a store for generating sales of products and services..

_60__ SIXTY CABINET MINISTERS

_61__ MINISTRY: A simple majority vote by at least six of the ten executives establishes the parliamentary go-ahead and will elect new Ministers, even without the parliamentary go-ahead.

_62__ MINISTRY DIRECTORS: Ministries may elect up to fifty Directors and any number of resolutions, agenda items, guidelines and administrators. The fifty Directors must be elected in one at-large district and their titles as "Directors" may be any title, for example each director may pick their own title too.

_63__ All International national Cabinet Ministers must be live, real people and no avatars or anonymous names may be used by the elected Cabinet Ministers. Only real names can be used and verification of the member's true name may be requested when such verifications are of interest from anyone of the ten executives.

_64__ HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES MINISTRY: The book "Know Thyself, Your Body's Wisdom for Living Consciously" will be added as a guide to the proposed Health and Human Services Ministry web page. For many ages, humanity has been confused about what decisions regenerate and degenerate our living systems. The Body itself has always held this wisdom of natural laws for our organ/gland functioning on 253 circuits of personal powers (but not always available until infrared could shine the light on it). The Body's own immense wisdom can show us how our next decision degenerates us or regenerates us (based on 40 years of scientific research using infrared technology that can be tracked, measured and decoded by the Language of the Body itself). This Self Evident and undeniable truth from our energetic design makes it an unparalleled guide to help humans make decisions (about voting, laws, or new customs, etc.) that can regenerate us from within as well as from without. (http://www.consciousnesssystems.com [1] to read the book). Also, VOLUNTARY LAW: The blog site http://vlda.org/, the Voluntary Law Development Association, owned by Jonathan Jaech will be added to the proposed

_65__ VOLUNTARY LAW MINISTRY: The Voluntary Law Ministry web page and can accompany 'Know Thyself, Your Body's Wisdom for Living Consciously' (that can both be used as the foundational principles for voluntary international law). These 2 sources of wisdom can promote peace, love and the clarity of energetic truth for successful ways to promote each living systems' regeneration.
The blog site http://vlda.org/, the Voluntary Law Development Association, owned by Jonathan Jaech will be added to the proposed VOLUNTARY LAW MINISTRY web page and will be used as the foundation for voluntary international law.

_66__ VOTE COUNTING MINISTRY: The Vote Counting Ministry will make an annual award for the "United Coalition Secure Paper Ballot Award".

_67__ TREASURY MINISTRY: The Treasury Minister of the International Parliament will be accountable only to the ten executives of the International Parliament through a vote of confidence. The Treasury Ministry is where specific records and agreements are posted for the public. The Treasury Ministry will maintain all records for Senators (donor MIPs) and other financial records such as revenue inflow, Senator mailing addresses, contact information and rankings, bank account savings and expenditures.

_68__ MEDIATION AND CONCILIATION MINISTRY: Appeals of a name's removal action may be taken to the Mediation and Conciliation Service Minister where rules for such appeals will be written, voted upon and approved.
Should any financial compensation be asked for or awarded after an appeal had been heard and a ruling had been finalized by the International national Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service Minister which is charged with recommending such financial compensation, then the case can be taken to the All Party System Co.'s International Bureau's Ethics & Grievances Committee of Four where a determination of the exact amount can be made and executed.

_69__ United Coalition

_70__ Declare that all of the elected and appointed members of the International Parliament, all countries' national parliaments, all subsidiary super-state, mini-state and county micro-state parliaments, to be members of a national and international "Unity Coalition" or "United Coalition" effective November 5th, 2014.

_71__ The International Parliament's subsidiary Republic "Unity Coalition" elections shall be in two phases; one before the country's primaries and one after the country's primaries. That way, a strong emphasis can be placed on official state-recognized ballot-qualified and write-in candidates both before the primaries and after the primaries, and the dates are customized for each of the country's official primaries.

_72__ UNITY PLATFORM

_73__ Conduct an international Direct Democracy (DD) election which will elect planks to a "Unity Platform".

_74__ The promotion of the Unity Coalition's "Unity Platform" can used used as an example of teamwork. The team can be promoted as being dynamic so that every item is up for a continual "vote of confidence" by all the members, all the time. That way, the recruitment of new members can take place in order to collect more votes for improving the planks on the Unity Platform.

_75__ PLANKS OF THE PLATFORM: The ten elected executives shall elect the UNITY PLATFORM with a series of "planks" from all the items they pick and rank from the DD election.

_76__ Guideline of Priority and Procedure

_77__ GENERAL PROVISIONS: Guideline of Priority and Procedure. The GUIDELINES contained on this web page shall be the official first GUIDELINES of procedure for the International Parliament and will be used for all transactions of business once ratified by a majority of the Members of Parliament (MPs). These GUIDELINES will take precedence over any other set of GUIDELINES.

_78__ GUIDELINE CHANGES: The Executive Committee reserves the right to make changes in these GUIDELINES by 6/10th vote and to present these changes to the delegates/members at any time. All changes should accommodate the desires or complaints of the MPs or staff so as to improve the conduct of business online and offline.

_79__ EXECUTIVES: The Executives of the International Parliament may select or approve persons to serve as Chairpersons, Legal Counsels, and Secretaries for each committee and any other position to help conduct the business.

_80__ CHAIR PERSON: Absence of Chairperson. If the Chair should find it necessary to be absent during any part of a committee meeting, he/she shall designate an individual (preferably the Legal Counsel) to assume his/her duties with the same authority.
General Authority of the Chairperson. In addition to exercising such authority conferred upon the Chair elsewhere in these GUIDELINES, the Chair shall declare the opening and closing of each session of the committee, direct its discussions, ensure observance of these GUIDELINES, accord the right to speak, put questions to a vote, and announce decisions of the committee.

_81__ Statements by the Executives. The ten elected Executives, or any person designated by the ten elected Executives, may at any time make oral or written statements to a committee.

_82__ MEMBERS: Number of Accredited Delegates. The number of delegates allowed on any delegation of the Parliament shall be limited to MIPs and Donor MIPs only.

_83__ DIPLOMATIC COURTESY: All delegates MUST accord all other delegates diplomatic courtesy at all times. Any delegate or visitor who, after being advised by the Chair, persists in an obvious attempt to divert the meeting from its intended purpose, or who otherwise attempts to disrupt the proceedings, shall be subject to disciplinary action and expulsion by the Chairperson.

_84__ AGENDA

_85__ AGENDA Selection of Agenda Items. Agenda items shall be selected by the Executive Committee. Once selected, these items are fixed for the duration of the conference and no other items will be discussed.

_86__ ORDER OF CONSIDERATION OF AGENDA ITEMS: Agenda items will be considered in the order in which they appear in the agenda eballot, unless that order is altered by a majority of the Committee.
The first set of agenda items approved by the majority (6 of ten minimum) will be known as "RESOLUTION NUMBER 2".
As new Executives are elected, the incoming executives will be asked to approve (or decline) all previous RESOLUTIONS and should the number of approving executives falls below a 6/10ths majority of Executives then the RESOLUTION is considered unelected, invalid and withdrawn. Only resolutions that retain a majority support of the Ten Executives can be considered approved.
New executives have 60 days following the election of their name to approve all RESOLUTIONS beginning with RESOLUTION NUMBER 2, 3, 4, etc. and RESOLUTION NUMBER 1 is not affected by incoming and outgoing executives because the majority coalition electing RESOLUTION NUMBER 1 consists of MIPs of whom Executives may be one.

_87__ PRIOR APPROVED RESOLUTIONS: Order of Consideration of Prior-Approved Resolutions. Prior-approved resolutions are resolutions that were received by the specified deadline and were deemed appropriate by the staff. They will receive priority over other resolutions. The order of appearance of resolutions before the Committee is determined by the date in which they were received, and is listed under the appropriate committee topic in that order in the resolution book by the Secretary. When the Chair opens debate on any agenda item, any delegate may move for consideration of an approved resolution on the agenda item that has been submitted to the chair with signatories of 1/8 of the delegations present. If the motion is seconded, the Chair will direct the committee to an immediate vote without debate on the motion, a majority being required for consideration. If no resolution receives a majority vote in favor of consideration, the Committee will automatically have before it for consideration the first resolution in the resolution book under that agenda item that has been received by the chair with the appropriate number of signatories.

_88__ CONSIDERATION OF RESOLUTIONS WITHOUT PRIOR APPROVAL: Resolutions that were not received by the specified deadline may still be considered, but not until 1/2 of the prior approved resolutions on the agenda item have been considered. For a resolution without prior approval to be considered, it must relate to the committee topic currently being debated, be submitted to the chair with signatories of 1/8 of the delegations present, and the delegate must supply enough copies of the resolution for each delegation present. Once these conditions have been met, any delegate may move for consideration of the resolution. If the motion is seconded, the chair will direct the committee to an immediate vote without debate on the motion, a majority being required for consideration.

_89__ SUBSTANTIVE PROPOSALS: Delegates will receive selected resolutions for consideration no later than at the time of the conference registration. The delegates must submit resolutions in the proper form by the deadline set by the Executive Committee.

_90__ Reporting Resolutions to the Parliament. The Chair of each committee shall report resolutions passed by that committee to the Parliament for its consideration. If a committee fails to approve a resolution on an agenda item, it shall submit a "Declaration of No Report" on that agenda item. That topic area will not be considered by the Parliament.

_91__ Amendments. All amendments to resolutions must be signed by one sponsoring delegation and at least one other seconding delegation; they must be submitted on an official amendment form for approval by the Legal Counsel and must be labeled with an identifying number by the Secretary. Secondary amendments and amendments by substitution are not acceptable. Obvious typographical efforts will be brought to the Committee's attention and collected by the Chair with no vote required. To move an amendment to the floor, recognition by the Chair and introduction of the amendment will suffice; no vote shall be required. Once an amendment has been brought to the floor, the Committee shall consider only the amendments and not the Resolutions until final action on the amendment has been taken (except to the extent that the amendment pertains to the Resolution).

_92__ Definition of Amendment and Voting on Amendments. An amendment is a motion that adds to, deletes from, or revises any part of a resolution. A series of alterations proposed by a single delegation to the same resolution shall be considered as a single amendment unless a motion is made to divide it.

_93__ Closure of Debate. A delegate may move to close debate at any time on any matter. Such a motion closes all substantive debate on the matters before the body at that time, except when such a motion would interrupt a speaker. Two delegates may speak against closure, and the motion will then be put to a vote. During debate on an amendment, a delegate may move for closure of debate on the resolution. If closure passes, then the amendment shall be voted on first followed by the resolution.

_94__ Move a Resolution to the Floor. Used to bring an approved resolution to the floor, this motion may not interrupt a speaker and is not debatable. No second is required.

_95__ DEBATE AND SPEECH GUIDELINES: Speeches. No delegate may address the committee without having previously obtained the permission of the Chair. The Chair shall call upon speakers in the order in which they signify their desire to speak. Delegates may not interrupt a speaker except on a point of order or point of personal privilege. Abusing these rights may be considered violations of diplomatic courtesy, and can result in disciplinary action taken by the chair. Motions should be made at the conclusion of the speaker's remarks; by making a motion, the speaker yields the floor.

_96__ Time Limit on Debate. The committee or the Chair may limit or extend the time allotted to each speaker and the number of times each delegate may speak on a proposal. There may be one speaker in favor and one opposed to the limitation/extension.

_97__ Right of Reply. During debate, the Chair may accord the right of reply to any delegate if a speech by another delegate contains unusual or extraordinary language clearly insulting to personal or national dignity. The decision granting a right of reply may not be appealed. Requests for a right of reply shall be in writing to the Chair. The Chair will limit the time for the reply. There shall be no reply to a reply.

_98__ POINTS - IN ORDER OF PRIORITY

Point of Order. If, during the discussion of any matter, a delegate believes that the committee is proceeding in a manner contrary to these GUIDELINES, he or she may rise to a point of order. The delegate so rising will be immediately recognized by the Chair and the point ruled upon. A delegate rising to a point of order may not speak on the substance of any matter under discussion.

Point of Personal Privilege. If a delegate wishes to raise a question or make a request relating to the organization of the meeting, personal comfort, or the conduct of fellow delegates or staff, he/she may rise to a point of personal privilege. When a delegate rises on privilege, the Chair shall take such action as is necessary.

Point of Parliamentary Inquiry. A point of parliamentary inquiry is directed to the Chair for information or guidance on procedure. This point may not interrupt the speaker. It is a question and does not require seconding or allow for debate. Replies by the Chair are not appealable.

Point of Information. If a delegate wishes to obtain a clarification of procedure or a statement of the matter before the committee, the delegate may address a point of information to the Chair. During debate, if a delegate wishes to ask a question of the speaker, a request to question the speaker may be made in the form of a point of information directed to the Chair after the speaker consents to be questioned, all questions and replies are made through the Chair. Delegates shall not interrupt a speaker on a point of information.

_99__ MOTIONS - ORDER OF PROCEDURAL MOTIONS

The motions as indicated in the Short Form of Points and Motions have precedence, in the order given, over all other proposals or motions before the committee.

Adjournment of Debate. During the discussion of any matter, a delegate may move the adjournment of debate on that matter. One delegate may speak in favor of the motion and one opposed. The motion shall then be put to an immediate vote. Adjournment of debate on a resolution or amendment has the effect of tabling that item and moves the committee on to the next order of business. See also 8.9 on Reconsideration.

Closure of Debate. A delegate may move to close debate at any time on any matter. Such a motion closes all substantive debate on the matters before the body at that time, except when such a motion would interrupt a speaker. Two delegates may speak against closure, and the motion will then be put to a vote. During debate on an amendment, a delegate may move for closure of debate on the resolution. if closure passes, then the amendment shall be voted on first followed by the resolution.

Move a Resolution to the Floor. Used to bring an approved resolution to the floor, this motion may not interrupt a speaker and is not debatable. No second is required.

Suspension of the Meeting. During the discussion of any matter, a delegate may move to suspend the meeting. Suspending a meeting recesses it until the time specified in the motion; the Chair may request the mover to modify the time. When the committee reconvenes it will continue with its business from the point at which suspension was moved.

Adjournment of the Meeting. The motion of adjournment means that all business of the committee has been completed, and that the committee win not reconvene until the next Annual Session. The Chair may refuse to recognize a motion to adjourn the meeting if the Committee still has business before it. A motion to adjourn is not debatable, and will be put to an immediate vote.

Decisions of Competence. Any motion calling for a decision on the competence of the Committee to discuss or adopt a proposal shall be put to a vote before the vote is taken on the proposal in question. If a Committee decides it is not competent to discuss or vote on an amendment or resolution, the effect is the same as adjourning debate on the matter. See also 8.9 on Reconsideration.

Withdrawal of Motions. A motion may be withdrawn by its proposer at any time before voting on it has begun, provided the motion has not been amended. A withdrawn motion may be reintroduced by any other delegation.

Reconsideration of Proposals. When a proposal has been adopted, or rejected through a vote of adjournment or "no competence", it may be reconsidered at the same session by an affirmative vote of two-thirds of the members present and voting. The motion to reconsider must be made by a delegation which originally voted on the prevailing side of the proposal; thus, reconsideration may be moved only on the proposals voted on by roll-call.

Division of the Question. A motion to divide the question, proposing that parts of an amendment or resolution be voted on separately, is in order at any time prior to commencement of voting on the amendment or resolution. Motions to divide shall apply only to operative clauses. Permission to speak on the motion shall be granted to one speaker in favor and one opposed, after which there shall be an immediate vote. The first motion for division to receive a majority vote shall become the final manner in which the proposal is presented. Those parts of the proposal which are approved shall be put to a vote as a whole. If all operative clauses of a proposal have been rejected, the proposal as a whole has been rejected.

Dilatory Motions. The Chair may rule as dilatory, and therefore out of order, any motion repeating or closely approximating a substantive measure on which the committee has already rendered an opinion. Such rulings can not be appealed.

Appealing a Decision of the Chair. Rulings of the chair can be appealed unless otherwise specified in these GUIDELINES. Appeals can be debated by one speaker in favor and one opposed.

_103__ Simple Majority. Unless otherwise specified in these GUIDELINES, decisions in the Committee shall be made by a majority vote of those members present and voting. The phrase "MSPs present and voting" refers to members casting ranked choice votes. Members which cast a final abstention are not voting. If a vote is equally divided between two sums of the same value, the motion fails.

_104__ Method of Voting. The Committee shall use ranked choice voting (RCV). The Chair, however, may grant a request for a roll-call vote; the decision to grant such a request is not appealable. All final votes on resolutions shall be taken by roll-call; the roll shall be called in English alphabetical order beginning with a person selected at random by the Secretary. Delegates shall reply "#1," or "abstain," or "abstain from the order of voting." A member may abstain from the order of voting once during the roll-call; a second abstention from the order of voting will be recorded as an abstention. Rights of explanation are permitted on roll-call votes and may be limited in time by the Chair. At the end of roll-call, but before rights of explanation and the subsequent announcement of the vote, the Secretary will ask for changes of vote. A delegation may not change from "0" to "#1", or "#1 with right of explanation" or from "0" to "0 with right of explanation." Those abstaining may be accorded rights of explanation. The result of the vote shall be inserted into the Committee record.

_105__ ONLINE VOTING: The International Parliament will conduct elections using online voting and all votes will be posted where they can be easily viewed by the public with the information as to who had cast the vote.

_106__ Conduct during Voting. Immediately prior to a vote, the Chair shall describe to the Committee the proposal to be voted on, and shall explain the consequence of a 1 or 0 vote. Voting shall begin upon the chair's declaration and shall end when the results of the vote are announced. Once voting has begun, no delegate shall interrupt the voting except on a point of order or information concerning the actual conduct of the vote, or on a point of personal privilege.

_109__ OPERATIVE CLAUSES are set out to achieve the committee's main policy goals on the topic.
Each operative clause begins with a number and ends with a semicolon (the final clause ends with a period).
Operative clauses should be organized in a logical progression, and each clause should contain a single idea or policy proposal.
Keep in mind that all resolutions except those passed by the simple majority of the executive are non-binding.
As a rule of thumb, good resolutions usually have an equal number or more operative phrases than preambulatory phrases.

but once the numbers of elected MIPs reached 500 this item "13.i" terminates is is no longer applicable, and only
marked eballots (and marked paper ballots) will elect new MIPs. At that moment in time, the registration of new
sign ups allows the new signed member to vote but the signature may be required as a pre-qualifying condition for voting.

a maximum of ten names. When more than ten names are correctly ranked in consecutive order on the ballot
or eballot then the first ten names are considered recipients of the ranked votes, but not names enumerated
number eleven (11) and after number eleven (11), which are affected. Once an automated voting system
is inplace, the limit of eleven rankings will not be required and will not be in effect.
13.k Senators with ID signatures on file may vote on MIP blank eballot upon receipt of signature.
13.l Once the signature and ID number is registered then the voter is encouraged to use the eballot,
but the paper ballot is also acceptable.
13.m Rules 13.a though 13.l do not apply to voting for Cabinet Directors and Ministry internal rules,
nor do they apply to Ten Executives votes for full and Deputy Cabinet Ministers.

_14__ General Counting, Balloting and Eballoting Guidelines for International Parliament Elections

_15__ RANKED VOTING ONLY: All voting and vote counting shall be in the form of ranked paper ballots only (and eballots when practical and verifiable). Consecutive numbers beginning with the #s 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. etc. must always be used when marking on (e)ballot of all alternative decisions or names. Deviation from this guideline will disqualify the ballot, and the ballot will be marked spoiled.

_16__ Pure proportional representation (PR) will be used.

_17__ THE SAINTE-LAGUE PARLIAMENT SYSTEM, Hagenbach-Bischoff method, under ranked choice voting, for seat allocation in all multi-seat districts:

Divide the election's total number of votes by the number of seats. This is the 1st quota.

Divide this quota into each candidate's votes, and round off to the nearest whole number. That's that candidate's seat allocation.

If, due to rounding, this awards a number of seats different from the desired number of seats, then adjust the quota slightly up or down, till, when paragraph two is carried out, it will award all seats.

_18__ Any resident of earth, nominee and/or proxy may observe the counting of the ballots. Volunteer counters will conduct the vote counting.

_19__ Choices marked on "eballots" are posted for public view and are not bound by confidentiality under the behavior of officers of the Parliament.

_20__ EBALLOTS are ballots cast via email and must be emailed to vvc "at" allpartysystem "dot" org, a private email address used by the secretary and observers for receiving such eballots. No reply email will be sent to voters who cast eballots other than a verification message, unless the voter indicates that he/she wishes to be self appointed to the www.international-parliament.org site or when a question regarding verification or validation is raised by a volunteer vote counter.

_21__ Volunteer vote counters may be added to the exploder email address vvc "at" allpartysystem "dot" org as a subscriber by sending the message "subscribe" to vvc "at" allpartysystem "dot" org.

_22__ Telephone voting is permissible, acceptable and verification and validations will be provided when requested.

_23__ Elections of rules shall be perpetual and the simple majority vote, by elected MIPs who vote on rules, passes rules.

_24__ BALLOTS AND EBALLOTS: All world residents are eligible to vote in International Parliament Elections 365 days year.

_25__ There will be five hundred members of International Parliament (MIPs) who are elected members self appointed/self nominated for free under ranked choice voting as one 500-member at-large district to be known as "MIPs" and five hundred members who are donors, ranked in order of donation level and are to be known as one 500-member at-large district to be known as "Senator" MIPs.

_26__ THE PARTY LEADER within the International Parliament is a label for the highest ranked name categorized under each party. Party leaders are responsible for the distribution of all ballots and rules to the members of their party/category and lists.

_27__ Such ballots may be retype set or altered to specifically identify their select nominees' correct name and party affiliation. All ballots released to public used by the International Parliament's elected secretaries shall count as a legitimate ballot and shall be presumed to represent the correct and most current candidate name information.

_27__ BALLOT: ORDER OF NOMINEES of all names in the parliament elections and subsidiary parliament elections will be determined by the results caused by the voters' ranking of the nominees on the previous election's ballots. This is known as the correct consecutive order of nominee. Appointments and self-appointments will be listed chronologically.

_29__ NOMINEE ACCEPTANCE AND WRITE-INS: Only names who formally ACCEPT the nomination of their name, self write-in names and those currently already elected will qualify for the ballot/eballot for the International Parliament. There will be a cap at 500 names for the ballot/eballot for the free elections of MIPs.

_30__ A verifiable name and contact information must be provided in order to qualify as a nominee for the (e)ballot.

_31__ The final order of the parties/categories on the final prepared ballot will be determined by the nominees' party name/category and the parties/categories and will be listed on the ballot in alphabetical order.

_32__ TIES: Ties will be broken by holding a runoff election only when called by one of the two secretaries. In all other cases, all the names/items in a tie will be included in the results and will be in a new "tied" category, even if the size of the assembly or agenda list must be expanded beyond normal size set forth by these rules.

_33__ ONLY ONE SINGLE PARLIAMENTARY BALLOT, IS PERMITTED TO BE MARKED BY EACH WORLD RESIDENT: All living world citizens may vote one time and only one time. In cases where a second ballot (or more) is cast, only the latter of the ballots will be counted, the former will be marked spoiled, deleted and regarded disqualified.

_34__ SENATORS

_36__ Senators: All donors who contribute money to the international political entity known as the International Parliament (IP) at the minimum donation amount of $20., will promptly and automatically become known as "Senator" once the donation has been correctly registered with the Treasury Minister and/or is received by the appropriate clerk. The Senators will be grouped into five donor-level groups.

Senators are not elected during regular election cycles of the parliament's elections but they do receive all of the same voting rights plus special donor privileges which apply to the donation level of which the donor has achieved. The total donation amount will apply as both an annual sum or a total of multiple years. The annual sum is primarily for convention services and the sum from multiple years has a secondary purpose which can apply to different purposes other than the annual convention services.

* * *

Upon approval of this bylaw item, all Senators' current donation levels,
shall have their previous fee levels apply retroactively to new benefits
under the same five fee levels with corresponding cost payments.

"Voting Stoppage"

Whenever a financial crisis occurs where the costs for paying basic maintenance of the International Parliament are not being met, including the costs of domain hosting, web design and obligations to all of the Senators, then the Treasury and/or Vote Counting Ministry can place end to all introductions of free membership sign ups of Members of International Parliament (MIPs) and other free services provided by the Vote Counting Ministry and this ending will be known as a "voting stoppage".

This bylaw item can also affect the internal Cabinet voting by Ministers, but it will not include/affect "votes of confidence" by the MIPs, voting by Senators current in dues and the voting for election of Cabinet Ministers (parliamentary go-ahead) by the Ten Executives.

The voting stoppage will terminate either upon the recommendation/consensus to end it by both the Treasury and Vote Counting Ministries, or once the numbers of Senators reaches the same number of free MIPs within the general International Parliament's assembly membership.

Diplomatic Passports

Some ministers and deputies will be traveling a lot abroad. At the airports and borders a diplomatic passport would make sense. Even for the professional legitimacy to foreign politicians.

ID Cards

For activities within the country an ID card is sufficient. However, a professionally designed plastic card should be used here. Since the International Parliament nevertheless plays an important role in the world standard, you should already pay attention to a professional public image.

_38__ Once the top Senator seats are assigned based on ranking of donation level, then lower ranked donors "spill over" into the "Senator MPs" section of the subsidiary Republic of Earth, the country from which the donor originated.

_39__ The Senator's donation will be recorded and should the Senator ever wish to "stand down", then the donation amount will be not be refunded.

_40__ The numbers of seats for Senators shall never be more than the number of free elected members of International Parliament (MIPs).

_41__ The Senators may vote on Senate guidelines and decisions from time to time but there is no requirement for such votes which are voluntary only. These compilation of votes will be conducted only by the Senators themselves.

_42__ Should a MIP who had been elected to a free seat, then be unelected and their name is no longer an elected free member, then their name will be automatically reinstated as a Senator, BoD, committee member and/or the same particular seat title in any subsidiary Republic of Earth, if their donation remained on the International Parliament's records.

_43__ All Senators shall have access to all financial records for the International Parliament. More detailed information which isn't available on the Treasury Ministry's web page will be made available within 90 days to Senators when a request is made in writing to the Treasury Minister.

_44__ All payments are to be in US dollars only unless pre-approval is obtained from the Treasury Ministry.

_45__ The International Parliament will not ever hold any election in a single- winner district where a single-winner decision or name is elected.

_46__ Ballot Preparation

_47__ SPACE FOR THREE OR MORE WRITE-IN choices must be provided on each and every ballot, in all elections.

_48__ CATEGORIZATION AND PARTY NAMES The first and most important criterion in determining the nominee's party/category is the nominee's most recently requested or declared party/category in Parliament matters. The second most important criterion in determining the nominee's party/category is determined by the nominee's state's records, as written by the member while registering to vote. Appointed members may be categorized with any party/category that they wish, and the party/category of all members is considered to be the true one. Elected members may decide to change or switch their party/categorization at any time by proclamation. Members automatically qualify for the ballot in the next election cycle under the party/category of their choice.

_49__ First and last names are preferred, however all names nominated will be permitted on the ballot as well as the party/category of the nominee. If party/category is not known, the label "[Info. Not Avail.]" will be used. A nominee's name (and thus identity) may appear on the ballot only once, so fusion voting is not allowed. All world citizens who had signed up since "RESOLUTION NUMBER 1" was first approved on 10/27/2014 will be automatically added as MIPs retroactively within seven days after the approval of this bylaw item #39.

_50__ RESIGNATIONS. When any elected member, executive or minister, stands down, resigns, retires, or dies - the name is deleted. Then the next highest ranked name is automatically elected to the seat in their stead.

_51__ When a candidate who has chosen to stand down but then wishes to return to the position which they had departed, then they must first be re-affirmed by all the voters who had previously cast a vote for them.

_52__ TEN EXECUTIVES

_53__ MIPs: Once elected, all new Members of International Parliament (MIPs) may change their vote as a "vote of confidence" for the ten executives into perpetuity.

_54__ THE VOICE of the International Parliament will be the ten executives.

_55__ Each of the elected ten executives may pick a seat title once elected.

_56__ The ten executives elect up to sixty full Cabinet Ministers and sixty Deputy Cabinet Ministers using the "parliamentary go-ahead.

_57__ The International Parliament's ten executives agree to rank all names nominated by each of the other nine executives, thus guaranteeing that each of the ten executives elects 1/10th of the 60 cabinet ministers and this is known as the "parliamentary go-ahead".

_58__ THE TEN EXECUTIVES recruit as many people as possible who will work in the Cabinet to run the efforts, elects the planks on the platform and run the parliament's efforts free from political conflict or bias. The executives do not control who gets elected to the general assembly.

_59__ The ten executives of the International Parliament (IP) will serve as "Founding Executives" on the unity business entity named "All Party System Co., International Bureau", which is established in order to report all unifying news, business, financial matters, vote counting and results of vote counting of the IP to the public and to serve as a store for generating sales of products and services..

_60__ SIXTY CABINET MINISTERS

_61__ MINISTRY: A simple majority vote by at least six of the ten executives establishes the parliamentary go-ahead and will elect new Ministers, even without the parliamentary go-ahead.

_62__ MINISTRY DIRECTORS: Ministries may elect up to fifty Directors and any number of resolutions, agenda items, guidelines and administrators. The fifty Directors must be elected in one at-large district and their titles as "Directors" may be any title, for example each director may pick their own title too.

_63__ All International national Cabinet Ministers must be live, real people and no avatars or anonymous names may be used by the elected Cabinet Ministers. Only real names can be used and verification of the member's true name may be requested when such verifications are of interest from anyone of the ten executives.

_64__ HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES MINISTRY: The book "Know Thyself, Your Body's Wisdom for Living Consciously" will be added as a guide to the proposed Health and Human Services Ministry web page. For many ages, humanity has been confused about what decisions regenerate and degenerate our living systems. The Body itself has always held this wisdom of natural laws for our organ/gland functioning on 253 circuits of personal powers (but not always available until infrared could shine the light on it). The Body's own immense wisdom can show us how our next decision degenerates us or regenerates us (based on 40 years of scientific research using infrared technology that can be tracked, measured and decoded by the Language of the Body itself). This Self Evident and undeniable truth from our energetic design makes it an unparalleled guide to help humans make decisions (about voting, laws, or new customs, etc.) that can regenerate us from within as well as from without. (http://www.consciousnesssystems.com [1] to read the book). Also, VOLUNTARY LAW: The blog site http://vlda.org/, the Voluntary Law Development Association, owned by Jonathan Jaech will be added to the proposed

_65__ VOLUNTARY LAW MINISTRY: The Voluntary Law Ministry web page and can accompany 'Know Thyself, Your Body's Wisdom for Living Consciously' (that can both be used as the foundational principles for voluntary international law). These 2 sources of wisdom can promote peace, love and the clarity of energetic truth for successful ways to promote each living systems' regeneration.
The blog site http://vlda.org/, the Voluntary Law Development Association, owned by Jonathan Jaech will be added to the proposed VOLUNTARY LAW MINISTRY web page and will be used as the foundation for voluntary international law.

_66__ VOTE COUNTING MINISTRY: The Vote Counting Ministry will make an annual award for the "United Coalition Secure Paper Ballot Award".

_67__ TREASURY MINISTRY: The Treasury Minister of the International Parliament will be accountable only to the ten executives of the International Parliament through a vote of confidence. The Treasury Ministry is where specific records and agreements are posted for the public. The Treasury Ministry will maintain all records for Senators (donor MIPs) and other financial records such as revenue inflow, Senator mailing addresses, contact information and rankings, bank account savings and expenditures.

_68__ MEDIATION AND CONCILIATION MINISTRY: Appeals of a name's removal action may be taken to the Mediation and Conciliation Service Minister where rules for such appeals will be written, voted upon and approved.
Should any financial compensation be asked for or awarded after an appeal had been heard and a ruling had been finalized by the International national Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service Minister which is charged with recommending such financial compensation, then the case can be taken to the All Party System Co.'s International Bureau's Ethics & Grievances Committee of Four where a determination of the exact amount can be made and executed.

_69__ United Coalition

_70__ Declare that all of the elected and appointed members of the International Parliament, all countries' national parliaments, all subsidiary super-state, mini-state and county micro-state parliaments, to be members of a national and international "Unity Coalition" or "United Coalition" effective November 5th, 2014.

_71__ The International Parliament's subsidiary Republic "Unity Coalition" elections shall be in two phases; one before the country's primaries and one after the country's primaries. That way, a strong emphasis can be placed on official state-recognized ballot-qualified and write-in candidates both before the primaries and after the primaries, and the dates are customized for each of the country's official primaries.

_72__ UNITY PLATFORM

_73__ Conduct an international Direct Democracy (DD) election which will elect planks to a "Unity Platform".

_74__ The promotion of the Unity Coalition's "Unity Platform" can used used as an example of teamwork. The team can be promoted as being dynamic so that every item is up for a continual "vote of confidence" by all the members, all the time. That way, the recruitment of new members can take place in order to collect more votes for improving the planks on the Unity Platform.

_75__ PLANKS OF THE PLATFORM: The ten elected executives shall elect the UNITY PLATFORM with a series of "planks" from all the items they pick and rank from the DD election.

_76__ Guideline of Priority and Procedure

_77__ GENERAL PROVISIONS: Guideline of Priority and Procedure.

These GUIDELINES will take precedence over any other set of GUIDELINES.

_78__ GUIDELINE CHANGES: The Executive Committee reserves the right to make changes in these GUIDELINES by 6/10th vote and to present these changes to the delegates/members at any time. All changes should accommodate the desires or complaints of the MPs or staff so as to improve the conduct of business online and offline.

_79__ EXECUTIVES: The Executives of the International Parliament may select or approve persons to serve as Chairpersons, Legal Counsels, and Secretaries for each committee and any other position to help conduct the business.

_80__ CHAIR PERSON: Absence of Chairperson. If the Chair should find it necessary to be absent during any part of a committee meeting, he/she shall designate an individual (preferably the Legal Counsel) to assume his/her duties with the same authority.

_81__ Statements by the Executives. The ten elected Executives, or any person designated by the ten elected Executives, may at any time make oral or written statements to a committee.

_82__ MEMBERS: Number of Accredited Delegates. The number of delegates allowed on any delegation of the Parliament shall be limited to MIPs and Donor MIPs only.

The first set of agenda items approved by the majority (6 of ten minimum) will be known as "RESOLUTION NUMBER 2".
As new Executives are elected, the incoming executives will be asked to approve (or decline) all previous RESOLUTIONS and should the number of approving executives falls below a 6/10ths majority of Executives then the RESOLUTION is considered unelected, invalid and withdrawn. Only resolutions that retain a majority support of the Ten Executives can be considered approved.
New executives have 60 days following the election of their name to approve all RESOLUTIONS beginning with RESOLUTION NUMBER 2, 3, 4, etc. and RESOLUTION NUMBER 1 is not affected by incoming and outgoing executives because the majority coalition electing RESOLUTION NUMBER 1 consists of MIPs of whom Executives may be one.

_87__ PRIOR APPROVED RESOLUTIONS: Order of Consideration of Prior-Approved Resolutions. Prior-approved resolutions are resolutions that were received by the specified deadline and were deemed appropriate by the staff. They will receive priority over other resolutions. The order of appearance of resolutions before the Committee is determined by the date in which they were received, and is listed under the appropriate committee topic in that order in the resolution book by the Secretary. When the Chair opens debate on any agenda item, any delegate may move for consideration of an approved resolution on the agenda item that has been submitted to the chair with signatories of 1/8 of the delegations present. If the motion is seconded, the Chair will direct the committee to an immediate vote without debate on the motion, a majority being required for consideration. If no resolution receives a majority vote in favor of consideration, the Committee will automatically have before it for consideration the first resolution in the resolution book under that agenda item that has been received by the chair with the appropriate number of signatories.

_88__ CONSIDERATION OF RESOLUTIONS WITHOUT PRIOR APPROVAL: Resolutions that were not received by the specified deadline may still be considered, but not until 1/2 of the prior approved resolutions on the agenda item have been considered. For a resolution without prior approval to be considered, it must relate to the committee topic currently being debated, be submitted to the chair with signatories of 1/8 of the delegations present, and the delegate must supply enough copies of the resolution for each delegation present. Once these conditions have been met, any delegate may move for consideration of the resolution. If the motion is seconded, the chair will direct the committee to an immediate vote without debate on the motion, a majority being required for consideration.

_89__ SUBSTANTIVE PROPOSALS: Delegates will receive selected resolutions for consideration no later than at the time of the conference registration. The delegates must submit resolutions in the proper form by the deadline set by the Executive Committee.

_90__ Reporting Resolutions to the Parliament. The Chair of each committee shall report resolutions passed by that committee to the Parliament for its consideration. If a committee fails to approve a resolution on an agenda item, it shall submit a "Declaration of No Report" on that agenda item. That topic area will not be considered by the Parliament.

_91__ Amendments. All amendments to resolutions must be signed by one sponsoring delegation and at least one other seconding delegation; they must be submitted on an official amendment form for approval by the Legal Counsel and must be labeled with an identifying number by the Secretary. Secondary amendments and amendments by substitution are not acceptable. Obvious typographical efforts will be brought to the Committee's attention and collected by the Chair with no vote required. To move an amendment to the floor, recognition by the Chair and introduction of the amendment will suffice; no vote shall be required. Once an amendment has been brought to the floor, the Committee shall consider only the amendments and not the Resolutions until final action on the amendment has been taken (except to the extent that the amendment pertains to the Resolution).

_92__ Definition of Amendment and Voting on Amendments. An amendment is a motion that adds to, deletes from, or revises any part of a resolution. A series of alterations proposed by a single delegation to the same resolution shall be considered as a single amendment unless a motion is made to divide it.

_93__ Closure of Debate. A delegate may move to close debate at any time on any matter. Such a motion closes all substantive debate on the matters before the body at that time, except when such a motion would interrupt a speaker. Two delegates may speak against closure, and the motion will then be put to a vote. During debate on an amendment, a delegate may move for closure of debate on the resolution. If closure passes, then the amendment shall be voted on first followed by the resolution.

_94__ Move a Resolution to the Floor. Used to bring an approved resolution to the floor, this motion may not interrupt a speaker and is not debatable. No second is required.

_95__ DEBATE AND SPEECH GUIDELINES: Speeches. No delegate may address the committee without having previously obtained the permission of the Chair. The Chair shall call upon speakers in the order in which they signify their desire to speak. Delegates may not interrupt a speaker except on a point of order or point of personal privilege. Abusing these rights may be considered violations of diplomatic courtesy, and can result in disciplinary action taken by the chair. Motions should be made at the conclusion of the speaker's remarks; by making a motion, the speaker yields the floor.

_96__ Time Limit on Debate. The committee or the Chair may limit or extend the time allotted to each speaker and the number of times each delegate may speak on a proposal. There may be one speaker in favor and one opposed to the limitation/extension.

_97__ Right of Reply. During debate, the Chair may accord the right of reply to any delegate if a speech by another delegate contains unusual or extraordinary language clearly insulting to personal or national dignity. The decision granting a right of reply may not be appealed. Requests for a right of reply shall be in writing to the Chair. The Chair will limit the time for the reply. There shall be no reply to a reply.

_98__ POINTS - IN ORDER OF PRIORITY

Point of Order. If, during the discussion of any matter, a delegate believes that the committee is proceeding in a manner contrary to these GUIDELINES, he or she may rise to a point of order. The delegate so rising will be immediately recognized by the Chair and the point ruled upon. A delegate rising to a point of order may not speak on the substance of any matter under discussion.

Point of Personal Privilege. If a delegate wishes to raise a question or make a request relating to the organization of the meeting, personal comfort, or the conduct of fellow delegates or staff, he/she may rise to a point of personal privilege. When a delegate rises on privilege, the Chair shall take such action as is necessary.

Point of Parliamentary Inquiry. A point of parliamentary inquiry is directed to the Chair for information or guidance on procedure. This point may not interrupt the speaker. It is a question and does not require seconding or allow for debate. Replies by the Chair are not appealable.

Point of Information. If a delegate wishes to obtain a clarification of procedure or a statement of the matter before the committee, the delegate may address a point of information to the Chair. During debate, if a delegate wishes to ask a question of the speaker, a request to question the speaker may be made in the form of a point of information directed to the Chair after the speaker consents to be questioned, all questions and replies are made through the Chair. Delegates shall not interrupt a speaker on a point of information.

_99__ MOTIONS - ORDER OF PROCEDURAL MOTIONS

The motions as indicated in the Short Form of Points and Motions have precedence, in the order given, over all other proposals or motions before the committee.

Adjournment of Debate. During the discussion of any matter, a delegate may move the adjournment of debate on that matter. One delegate may speak in favor of the motion and one opposed. The motion shall then be put to an immediate vote. Adjournment of debate on a resolution or amendment has the effect of tabling that item and moves the committee on to the next order of business. See also 8.9 on Reconsideration.

Closure of Debate. A delegate may move to close debate at any time on any matter. Such a motion closes all substantive debate on the matters before the body at that time, except when such a motion would interrupt a speaker. Two delegates may speak against closure, and the motion will then be put to a vote. During debate on an amendment, a delegate may move for closure of debate on the resolution. if closure passes, then the amendment shall be voted on first followed by the resolution.

Move a Resolution to the Floor. Used to bring an approved resolution to the floor, this motion may not interrupt a speaker and is not debatable. No second is required.

Suspension of the Meeting. During the discussion of any matter, a delegate may move to suspend the meeting. Suspending a meeting recesses it until the time specified in the motion; the Chair may request the mover to modify the time. When the committee reconvenes it will continue with its business from the point at which suspension was moved.

Adjournment of the Meeting. The motion of adjournment means that all business of the committee has been completed, and that the committee win not reconvene until the next Annual Session. The Chair may refuse to recognize a motion to adjourn the meeting if the Committee still has business before it. A motion to adjourn is not debatable, and will be put to an immediate vote.

Decisions of Competence. Any motion calling for a decision on the competence of the Committee to discuss or adopt a proposal shall be put to a vote before the vote is taken on the proposal in question. If a Committee decides it is not competent to discuss or vote on an amendment or resolution, the effect is the same as adjourning debate on the matter. See also 8.9 on Reconsideration.

Withdrawal of Motions. A motion may be withdrawn by its proposer at any time before voting on it has begun, provided the motion has not been amended. A withdrawn motion may be reintroduced by any other delegation.

Reconsideration of Proposals. When a proposal has been adopted, or rejected through a vote of adjournment or "no competence", it may be reconsidered at the same session by an affirmative vote of two-thirds of the members present and voting. The motion to reconsider must be made by a delegation which originally voted on the prevailing side of the proposal; thus, reconsideration may be moved only on the proposals voted on by roll-call.

Division of the Question. A motion to divide the question, proposing that parts of an amendment or resolution be voted on separately, is in order at any time prior to commencement of voting on the amendment or resolution. Motions to divide shall apply only to operative clauses. Permission to speak on the motion shall be granted to one speaker in favor and one opposed, after which there shall be an immediate vote. The first motion for division to receive a majority vote shall become the final manner in which the proposal is presented. Those parts of the proposal which are approved shall be put to a vote as a whole. If all operative clauses of a proposal have been rejected, the proposal as a whole has been rejected.

Dilatory Motions. The Chair may rule as dilatory, and therefore out of order, any motion repeating or closely approximating a substantive measure on which the committee has already rendered an opinion. Such rulings can not be appealed.

Appealing a Decision of the Chair. Rulings of the chair can be appealed unless otherwise specified in these GUIDELINES. Appeals can be debated by one speaker in favor and one opposed.

_103__ Simple Majority. Unless otherwise specified in these GUIDELINES, decisions in the Committee shall be made by a majority vote of those members present and voting. The phrase "MSPs present and voting" refers to members casting ranked choice votes. Members which cast a final abstention are not voting. If a vote is equally divided between two sums of the same value, the motion fails.

_104__ Method of Voting. The Committee shall use ranked choice voting (RCV). The Chair, however, may grant a request for a roll-call vote; the decision to grant such a request is not appealable. All final votes on resolutions shall be taken by roll-call; the roll shall be called in English alphabetical order beginning with a person selected at random by the Secretary. Delegates shall reply "#1," or "abstain," or "abstain from the order of voting." A member may abstain from the order of voting once during the roll-call; a second abstention from the order of voting will be recorded as an abstention. Rights of explanation are permitted on roll-call votes and may be limited in time by the Chair. At the end of roll-call, but before rights of explanation and the subsequent announcement of the vote, the Secretary will ask for changes of vote. A delegation may not change from "0" to "#1", or "#1 with right of explanation" or from "0" to "0 with right of explanation." Those abstaining may be accorded rights of explanation. The result of the vote shall be inserted into the Committee record.

_105__ ONLINE VOTING: The International Parliament will conduct elections using online voting and all votes will be posted where they can be easily viewed by the public with the information as to who had cast the vote.

_106__ Conduct during Voting. Immediately prior to a vote, the Chair shall describe to the Committee the proposal to be voted on, and shall explain the consequence of a 1 or 0 vote. Voting shall begin upon the chair's declaration and shall end when the results of the vote are announced. Once voting has begun, no delegate shall interrupt the voting except on a point of order or information concerning the actual conduct of the vote, or on a point of personal privilege.

_109__ OPERATIVE CLAUSES are set out to achieve the committee's main policy goals on the topic.

Upon approval of this bylaw item, all Senators' current donation levels,
shall have their previous fee levels apply retroactively to new benefits
under the same five fee levels with corresponding cost payments.

"Voting Stoppage"

Whenever a financial crisis occurs where the costs for paying basic maintenance of the International Parliament are not being met, including the costs of domain hosting, web design and obligations to all of the Senators, then the Treasury and/or Vote Counting Ministry can place end to all introductions of free membership sign ups of Members of International Parliament (MIPs) and other free services provided by the Vote Counting Ministry and this ending will be known as a "voting stoppage".

This bylaw item can also affect the internal Cabinet voting by Ministers, but it will not include/affect "votes of confidence" by the MIPs, voting by Senators current in dues and the voting for election of Cabinet Ministers (parliamentary go-ahead) by the Ten Executives.

The voting stoppage will terminate either upon the recommendation/consensus to end it by both the Treasury and Vote Counting Ministries, or once the numbers of Senators reaches the same number of free MIPs within the general International Parliament's assembly membership.

Diplomatic Passports

Some ministers and deputies will be traveling a lot abroad. At the airports and borders a diplomatic passport would make sense. Even for the professional legitimacy to foreign politicians.

ID Cards

For activities within the country an ID card is sufficient. However, a professionally designed plastic card should be used here. Since the International Parliament nevertheless plays an important role in the world standard, you should already pay attention to a professional public image.

_38__ Once the top Senator seats are assigned based on ranking of donation level, then lower ranked donors "spill over" into the "Senator MPs" section of the subsidiary Republic of Earth, the country from which the donor originated.

_39__ The Senator's donation will be recorded and should the Senator ever wish to "stand down", then the donation amount will be not be refunded.

_40__ The numbers of seats for Senators shall never be more than the number of free elected members of International Parliament (MIPs).

_41__ The Senators may vote on Senate guidelines and decisions from time to time but there is no requirement for such votes which are voluntary only. These compilation of votes will be conducted only by the Senators themselves.

_42__ Should a MIP who had been elected to a free seat, then be unelected and their name is no longer an elected free member, then their name will be automatically reinstated as a Senator, BoD, committee member and/or the same particular seat title in any subsidiary Republic of Earth, if their donation remained on the International Parliament's records.

_43__ All Senators shall have access to all financial records for the International Parliament. More detailed information which isn't available on the Treasury Ministry's web page will be made available within 90 days to Senators when a request is made in writing to the Treasury Minister.

_44__ All payments are to be in US dollars only unless pre-approval is obtained from the Treasury Ministry.

_45__ The International Parliament will not ever hold any election in a single- winner district where a single-winner decision or name is elected.

_46__ Ballot Preparation

_47__ SPACE FOR THREE OR MORE WRITE-IN choices must be provided on each and every ballot, in all elections.

_48__ CATEGORIZATION AND PARTY NAMES The first and most important criterion in determining the nominee's party/category is the nominee's most recently requested or declared party/category in Parliament matters. The second most important criterion in determining the nominee's party/category is determined by the nominee's state's records, as written by the member while registering to vote. Appointed members may be categorized with any party/category that they wish, and the party/category of all members is considered to be the true one. Elected members may decide to change or switch their party/categorization at any time by proclamation. Members automatically qualify for the ballot in the next election cycle under the party/category of their choice.

_49__ First and last names are preferred, however all names nominated will be permitted on the ballot as well as the party/category of the nominee. If party/category is not known, the label "[Info. Not Avail.]" will be used. A nominee's name (and thus identity) may appear on the ballot only once, so fusion voting is not allowed. All world citizens who had signed up since "RESOLUTION NUMBER 1" was first approved on 10/27/2014 will be automatically added as MIPs retroactively within seven days after the approval of this bylaw item #39.

_50__ RESIGNATIONS. When any elected member, executive or minister, stands down, resigns, retires, or dies - the name is deleted. Then the next highest ranked name is automatically elected to the seat in their stead.

_51__ When a candidate who has chosen to stand down but then wishes to return to the position which they had departed, then they must first be re-affirmed by all the voters who had previously cast a vote for them.

_52__ TEN EXECUTIVES

_53__ MIPs: Once elected, all new Members of International Parliament (MIPs) may change their vote as a "vote of confidence" for the ten executives into perpetuity.

_54__ THE VOICE of the International Parliament will be the ten executives.

_55__ Each of the elected ten executives may pick a seat title once elected.

_56__ The ten executives elect up to sixty full Cabinet Ministers and sixty Deputy Cabinet Ministers using the "parliamentary go-ahead.

_57__ The International Parliament's ten executives agree to rank all names nominated by each of the other nine executives, thus guaranteeing that each of the ten executives elects 1/10th of the 60 cabinet ministers and this is known as the "parliamentary go-ahead".

_58__ THE TEN EXECUTIVES recruit as many people as possible who will work in the Cabinet to run the efforts, elects the planks on the platform and run the parliament's efforts free from political conflict or bias. The executives do not control who gets elected to the general assembly.

_59__ The ten executives of the International Parliament (IP) will serve as "Founding Executives" on the unity business entity named "All Party System Co., International Bureau", which is established in order to report all unifying news, business, financial matters, vote counting and results of vote counting of the IP to the public and to serve as a store for generating sales of products and services..

_60__ SIXTY CABINET MINISTERS

_61__ MINISTRY: A simple majority vote by at least six of the ten executives establishes the parliamentary go-ahead and will elect new Ministers, even without the parliamentary go-ahead.

_62__ MINISTRY DIRECTORS: Ministries may elect up to fifty Directors and any number of resolutions, agenda items, guidelines and administrators. The fifty Directors must be elected in one at-large district and their titles as "Directors" may be any title, for example each director may pick their own title too.

_63__ All International national Cabinet Ministers must be live, real people and no avatars or anonymous names may be used by the elected Cabinet Ministers. Only real names can be used and verification of the member's true name may be requested when such verifications are of interest from anyone of the ten executives.

_64__ HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES MINISTRY: The book "Know Thyself, Your Body's Wisdom for Living Consciously" will be added as a guide to the proposed Health and Human Services Ministry web page. For many ages, humanity has been confused about what decisions regenerate and degenerate our living systems. The Body itself has always held this wisdom of natural laws for our organ/gland functioning on 253 circuits of personal powers (but not always available until infrared could shine the light on it). The Body's own immense wisdom can show us how our next decision degenerates us or regenerates us (based on 40 years of scientific research using infrared technology that can be tracked, measured and decoded by the Language of the Body itself). This Self Evident and undeniable truth from our energetic design makes it an unparalleled guide to help humans make decisions (about voting, laws, or new customs, etc.) that can regenerate us from within as well as from without. (http://www.consciousnesssystems.com [1] to read the book). Also, VOLUNTARY LAW: The blog site http://vlda.org/, the Voluntary Law Development Association, owned by Jonathan Jaech will be added to the proposed

_65__ VOLUNTARY LAW MINISTRY: The Voluntary Law Ministry web page and can accompany 'Know Thyself, Your Body's Wisdom for Living Consciously' (that can both be used as the foundational principles for voluntary international law). These 2 sources of wisdom can promote peace, love and the clarity of energetic truth for successful ways to promote each living systems' regeneration.
The blog site http://vlda.org/, the Voluntary Law Development Association, owned by Jonathan Jaech will be added to the proposed VOLUNTARY LAW MINISTRY web page and will be used as the foundation for voluntary international law.

_66__ VOTE COUNTING MINISTRY: The Vote Counting Ministry will make an annual award for the "United Coalition Secure Paper Ballot Award".

_67__ TREASURY MINISTRY: The Treasury Minister of the International Parliament will be accountable only to the ten executives of the International Parliament through a vote of confidence. The Treasury Ministry is where specific records and agreements are posted for the public. The Treasury Ministry will maintain all records for Senators (donor MIPs) and other financial records such as revenue inflow, Senator mailing addresses, contact information and rankings, bank account savings and expenditures.

_68__ MEDIATION AND CONCILIATION MINISTRY: Appeals of a name's removal action may be taken to the Mediation and Conciliation Service Minister where rules for such appeals will be written, voted upon and approved.
Should any financial compensation be asked for or awarded after an appeal had been heard and a ruling had been finalized by the International national Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service Minister which is charged with recommending such financial compensation, then the case can be taken to the All Party System Co.'s International Bureau's Ethics & Grievances Committee of Four where a determination of the exact amount can be made and executed.

_69__ United Coalition

_70__ Declare that all of the elected and appointed members of the International Parliament, all countries' national parliaments, all subsidiary super-state, mini-state and county micro-state parliaments, to be members of a national and international "Unity Coalition" or "United Coalition" effective November 5th, 2014.

_71__ The International Parliament's subsidiary Republic "Unity Coalition" elections shall be in two phases; one before the country's primaries and one after the country's primaries. That way, a strong emphasis can be placed on official state-recognized ballot-qualified and write-in candidates both before the primaries and after the primaries, and the dates are customized for each of the country's official primaries.

_72__ UNITY PLATFORM

_73__ Conduct an international Direct Democracy (DD) election which will elect planks to a "Unity Platform".

_74__ The promotion of the Unity Coalition's "Unity Platform" can used used as an example of teamwork. The team can be promoted as being dynamic so that every item is up for a continual "vote of confidence" by all the members, all the time. That way, the recruitment of new members can take place in order to collect more votes for improving the planks on the Unity Platform.

_75__ PLANKS OF THE PLATFORM: The ten elected executives shall elect the UNITY PLATFORM with a series of "planks" from all the items they pick and rank from the DD election.

_76__ Guideline of Priority and Procedure

_77__ GENERAL PROVISIONS: Guideline of Priority and Procedure. The GUIDELINES contained on this web page shall be the official first GUIDELINES of procedure for the International Parliament and will be used for all transactions of business once ratified by a majority of the Members of Parliament (MPs). These GUIDELINES will take precedence over any other set of GUIDELINES.

_78__ GUIDELINE CHANGES: The Executive Committee reserves the right to make changes in these GUIDELINES by 6/10th vote and to present these changes to the delegates/members at any time. All changes should accommodate the desires or complaints of the MPs or staff so as to improve the conduct of business online and offline.

_79__ EXECUTIVES: The Executives of the International Parliament may select or approve persons to serve as Chairpersons, Legal Counsels, and Secretaries for each committee and any other position to help conduct the business.

_80__ CHAIR PERSON: Absence of Chairperson. If the Chair should find it necessary to be absent during any part of a committee meeting, he/she shall designate an individual (preferably the Legal Counsel) to assume his/her duties with the same authority.
General Authority of the Chairperson. In addition to exercising such authority conferred upon the Chair elsewhere in these GUIDELINES, the Chair shall declare the opening and closing of each session of the committee, direct its discussions, ensure observance of these GUIDELINES, accord the right to speak, put questions to a vote, and announce decisions of the committee.

_81__ Statements by the Executives. The ten elected Executives, or any person designated by the ten elected Executives, may at any time make oral or written statements to a committee.

_82__ MEMBERS: Number of Accredited Delegates. The number of delegates allowed on any delegation of the Parliament shall be limited to MIPs and Donor MIPs only.

_83__ DIPLOMATIC COURTESY: All delegates MUST accord all other delegates diplomatic courtesy at all times. Any delegate or visitor who, after being advised by the Chair, persists in an obvious attempt to divert the meeting from its intended purpose, or who otherwise attempts to disrupt the proceedings, shall be subject to disciplinary action and expulsion by the Chairperson.

_84__ AGENDA

_85__ AGENDA Selection of Agenda Items. Agenda items shall be selected by the Executive Committee. Once selected, these items are fixed for the duration of the conference and no other items will be discussed.

_86__ ORDER OF CONSIDERATION OF AGENDA ITEMS: Agenda items will be considered in the order in which they appear in the agenda eballot, unless that order is altered by a majority of the Committee.
The first set of agenda items approved by the majority (6 of ten minimum) will be known as "RESOLUTION NUMBER 2".
As new Executives are elected, the incoming executives will be asked to approve (or decline) all previous RESOLUTIONS and should the number of approving executives falls below a 6/10ths majority of Executives then the RESOLUTION is considered unelected, invalid and withdrawn. Only resolutions that retain a majority support of the Ten Executives can be considered approved.
New executives have 60 days following the election of their name to approve all RESOLUTIONS beginning with RESOLUTION NUMBER 2, 3, 4, etc. and RESOLUTION NUMBER 1 is not affected by incoming and outgoing executives because the majority coalition electing RESOLUTION NUMBER 1 consists of MIPs of whom Executives may be one.

_87__ PRIOR APPROVED RESOLUTIONS: Order of Consideration of Prior-Approved Resolutions. Prior-approved resolutions are resolutions that were received by the specified deadline and were deemed appropriate by the staff. They will receive priority over other resolutions. The order of appearance of resolutions before the Committee is determined by the date in which they were received, and is listed under the appropriate committee topic in that order in the resolution book by the Secretary. When the Chair opens debate on any agenda item, any delegate may move for consideration of an approved resolution on the agenda item that has been submitted to the chair with signatories of 1/8 of the delegations present. If the motion is seconded, the Chair will direct the committee to an immediate vote without debate on the motion, a majority being required for consideration. If no resolution receives a majority vote in favor of consideration, the Committee will automatically have before it for consideration the first resolution in the resolution book under that agenda item that has been received by the chair with the appropriate number of signatories.

_88__ CONSIDERATION OF RESOLUTIONS WITHOUT PRIOR APPROVAL: Resolutions that were not received by the specified deadline may still be considered, but not until 1/2 of the prior approved resolutions on the agenda item have been considered. For a resolution without prior approval to be considered, it must relate to the committee topic currently being debated, be submitted to the chair with signatories of 1/8 of the delegations present, and the delegate must supply enough copies of the resolution for each delegation present. Once these conditions have been met, any delegate may move for consideration of the resolution. If the motion is seconded, the chair will direct the committee to an immediate vote without debate on the motion, a majority being required for consideration.

_89__ SUBSTANTIVE PROPOSALS: Delegates will receive selected resolutions for consideration no later than at the time of the conference registration. The delegates must submit resolutions in the proper form by the deadline set by the Executive Committee.

_90__ Reporting Resolutions to the Parliament. The Chair of each committee shall report resolutions passed by that committee to the Parliament for its consideration. If a committee fails to approve a resolution on an agenda item, it shall submit a "Declaration of No Report" on that agenda item. That topic area will not be considered by the Parliament.

_91__ Amendments. All amendments to resolutions must be signed by one sponsoring delegation and at least one other seconding delegation; they must be submitted on an official amendment form for approval by the Legal Counsel and must be labeled with an identifying number by the Secretary. Secondary amendments and amendments by substitution are not acceptable. Obvious typographical efforts will be brought to the Committee's attention and collected by the Chair with no vote required. To move an amendment to the floor, recognition by the Chair and introduction of the amendment will suffice; no vote shall be required. Once an amendment has been brought to the floor, the Committee shall consider only the amendments and not the Resolutions until final action on the amendment has been taken (except to the extent that the amendment pertains to the Resolution).

_92__ Definition of Amendment and Voting on Amendments. An amendment is a motion that adds to, deletes from, or revises any part of a resolution. A series of alterations proposed by a single delegation to the same resolution shall be considered as a single amendment unless a motion is made to divide it.

_93__ Closure of Debate. A delegate may move to close debate at any time on any matter. Such a motion closes all substantive debate on the matters before the body at that time, except when such a motion would interrupt a speaker. Two delegates may speak against closure, and the motion will then be put to a vote. During debate on an amendment, a delegate may move for closure of debate on the resolution. If closure passes, then the amendment shall be voted on first followed by the resolution.

_94__ Move a Resolution to the Floor. Used to bring an approved resolution to the floor, this motion may not interrupt a speaker and is not debatable. No second is required.

_95__ DEBATE AND SPEECH GUIDELINES: Speeches. No delegate may address the committee without having previously obtained the permission of the Chair. The Chair shall call upon speakers in the order in which they signify their desire to speak. Delegates may not interrupt a speaker except on a point of order or point of personal privilege. Abusing these rights may be considered violations of diplomatic courtesy, and can result in disciplinary action taken by the chair. Motions should be made at the conclusion of the speaker's remarks; by making a motion, the speaker yields the floor.

_96__ Time Limit on Debate. The committee or the Chair may limit or extend the time allotted to each speaker and the number of times each delegate may speak on a proposal. There may be one speaker in favor and one opposed to the limitation/extension.

_97__ Right of Reply. During debate, the Chair may accord the right of reply to any delegate if a speech by another delegate contains unusual or extraordinary language clearly insulting to personal or national dignity. The decision granting a right of reply may not be appealed. Requests for a right of reply shall be in writing to the Chair. The Chair will limit the time for the reply. There shall be no reply to a reply.

_98__ POINTS - IN ORDER OF PRIORITY

Point of Order. If, during the discussion of any matter, a delegate believes that the committee is proceeding in a manner contrary to these GUIDELINES, he or she may rise to a point of order. The delegate so rising will be immediately recognized by the Chair and the point ruled upon. A delegate rising to a point of order may not speak on the substance of any matter under discussion.

Point of Personal Privilege. If a delegate wishes to raise a question or make a request relating to the organization of the meeting, personal comfort, or the conduct of fellow delegates or staff, he/she may rise to a point of personal privilege. When a delegate rises on privilege, the Chair shall take such action as is necessary.

Point of Parliamentary Inquiry. A point of parliamentary inquiry is directed to the Chair for information or guidance on procedure. This point may not interrupt the speaker. It is a question and does not require seconding or allow for debate. Replies by the Chair are not appealable.

Point of Information. If a delegate wishes to obtain a clarification of procedure or a statement of the matter before the committee, the delegate may address a point of information to the Chair. During debate, if a delegate wishes to ask a question of the speaker, a request to question the speaker may be made in the form of a point of information directed to the Chair after the speaker consents to be questioned, all questions and replies are made through the Chair. Delegates shall not interrupt a speaker on a point of information.

_99__ MOTIONS - ORDER OF PROCEDURAL MOTIONS

The motions as indicated in the Short Form of Points and Motions have precedence, in the order given, over all other proposals or motions before the committee.

Adjournment of Debate. During the discussion of any matter, a delegate may move the adjournment of debate on that matter. One delegate may speak in favor of the motion and one opposed. The motion shall then be put to an immediate vote. Adjournment of debate on a resolution or amendment has the effect of tabling that item and moves the committee on to the next order of business. See also 8.9 on Reconsideration.

Closure of Debate. A delegate may move to close debate at any time on any matter. Such a motion closes all substantive debate on the matters before the body at that time, except when such a motion would interrupt a speaker. Two delegates may speak against closure, and the motion will then be put to a vote. During debate on an amendment, a delegate may move for closure of debate on the resolution. if closure passes, then the amendment shall be voted on first followed by the resolution.

Move a Resolution to the Floor. Used to bring an approved resolution to the floor, this motion may not interrupt a speaker and is not debatable. No second is required.

Suspension of the Meeting. During the discussion of any matter, a delegate may move to suspend the meeting. Suspending a meeting recesses it until the time specified in the motion; the Chair may request the mover to modify the time. When the committee reconvenes it will continue with its business from the point at which suspension was moved.

Adjournment of the Meeting. The motion of adjournment means that all business of the committee has been completed, and that the committee win not reconvene until the next Annual Session. The Chair may refuse to recognize a motion to adjourn the meeting if the Committee still has business before it. A motion to adjourn is not debatable, and will be put to an immediate vote.

Decisions of Competence. Any motion calling for a decision on the competence of the Committee to discuss or adopt a proposal shall be put to a vote before the vote is taken on the proposal in question. If a Committee decides it is not competent to discuss or vote on an amendment or resolution, the effect is the same as adjourning debate on the matter. See also 8.9 on Reconsideration.

Withdrawal of Motions. A motion may be withdrawn by its proposer at any time before voting on it has begun, provided the motion has not been amended. A withdrawn motion may be reintroduced by any other delegation.

Reconsideration of Proposals. When a proposal has been adopted, or rejected through a vote of adjournment or "no competence", it may be reconsidered at the same session by an affirmative vote of two-thirds of the members present and voting. The motion to reconsider must be made by a delegation which originally voted on the prevailing side of the proposal; thus, reconsideration may be moved only on the proposals voted on by roll-call.

Division of the Question. A motion to divide the question, proposing that parts of an amendment or resolution be voted on separately, is in order at any time prior to commencement of voting on the amendment or resolution. Motions to divide shall apply only to operative clauses. Permission to speak on the motion shall be granted to one speaker in favor and one opposed, after which there shall be an immediate vote. The first motion for division to receive a majority vote shall become the final manner in which the proposal is presented. Those parts of the proposal which are approved shall be put to a vote as a whole. If all operative clauses of a proposal have been rejected, the proposal as a whole has been rejected.

Dilatory Motions. The Chair may rule as dilatory, and therefore out of order, any motion repeating or closely approximating a substantive measure on which the committee has already rendered an opinion. Such rulings can not be appealed.

Appealing a Decision of the Chair. Rulings of the chair can be appealed unless otherwise specified in these GUIDELINES. Appeals can be debated by one speaker in favor and one opposed.

If a vote is equally divided between two sums of the same value, the motion fails.

_104__ Method of Voting. The Committee shall use ranked choice voting (RCV). The Chair, however, may grant a request for a roll-call vote; the decision to grant such a request is not appealable. All final votes on resolutions shall be taken by roll-call; the roll shall be called in English alphabetical order beginning with a person selected at random by the Secretary. Delegates shall reply "#1," or "abstain," or "abstain from the order of voting." A member may abstain from the order of voting once during the roll-call; a second abstention from the order of voting will be recorded as an abstention. Rights of explanation are permitted on roll-call votes and may be limited in time by the Chair. At the end of roll-call, but before rights of explanation and the subsequent announcement of the vote, the Secretary will ask for changes of vote. A delegation may not change from "0" to "#1", or "#1 with right of explanation" or from "0" to "0 with right of explanation." Those abstaining may be accorded rights of explanation. The result of the vote shall be inserted into the Committee record.

_105__ ONLINE VOTING: The International Parliament will conduct elections using online voting and all votes will be posted where they can be easily viewed by the public with the information as to who had cast the vote.

_106__ Conduct during Voting. Immediately prior to a vote, the Chair shall describe to the Committee the proposal to be voted on, and shall explain the consequence of a 1 or 0 vote. Voting shall begin upon the chair's declaration and shall end when the results of the vote are announced. Once voting has begun, no delegate shall interrupt the voting except on a point of order or information concerning the actual conduct of the vote, or on a point of personal privilege.

The Board of Elections will hand tally the results from all the polling locations, again, two times by two different and diverse teams of counters with this being taped, recorded and broadcast and the public able to observe, tape and live-stream the entire proceedings. And, the same goes for what happens at the state level.

_9__ The polling location should serve a maximum of 1,000 voters and Election Day should be a national holiday with employers, if necessary, having to arrange for special accommodations for employees that must work, as with hospitals.

Additional Measures
Once 500 Members of International Parliament (MIPs) are elected, the following rules automatically take effect:
13.a Registered voters must meet stricter verification standards.
13.b Elected MIPs must also meet the same stricter verification standards.
13.c Registered voters and elected members must provide a signature drawn with black ink which will be used
for ID and verification and validation at conventions and this signature must also be provided before any vote takes effect.
The issuance of the ID is not required for the registered voter to participate, but the signature must be on file.
13.d Signatures will be stored in the International Parliament's files in alphabetical order or last names.
13.e When funds are available, the signature will be copied to the background of an ID card. Photo
of the voter may also be added for an additional fee charged to ID holder. Each voters ID number will
be included on the ID card.
13.f ID cards may be provided to Senators, beginning with Level Once Senators, followed by Level Two, Three, Four and Five, until all Senators hold ID cards.
13.g ID cards will not have the mailing address of the registered voter and/or elected MIPs and Senators.

or eballot then the first ten names are considered recipients of the ranked votes, but not names enumerated

is inplace, the limit of eleven rankings will not be required and will not be in effect.

_14__ General Counting, Balloting and Eballoting Guidelines for International Parliament Elections

_15__ RANKED VOTING ONLY: All voting and vote counting shall be in the form of ranked paper ballots only (and eballots when practical and verifiable). Consecutive numbers beginning with the #s 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. etc. must always be used when marking on (e)ballot of all alternative decisions or names. Deviation from this guideline will disqualify the ballot, and the ballot will be marked spoiled.

_16__ Pure proportional representation (PR) will be used.

_17__ THE SAINTE-LAGUE PARLIAMENT SYSTEM, Hagenbach-Bischoff method, under ranked choice voting, for seat allocation in all multi-seat districts:

Divide this quota into each candidate's votes, and round off to the nearest whole number. That's that candidate's seat allocation.

If, due to rounding, this awards a number of seats different from the desired number of seats, then adjust the quota slightly up or down, till, when paragraph two is carried out, it will award all seats.

_18__ Any resident of earth, nominee and/or proxy may observe the counting of the ballots. Volunteer counters will conduct the vote counting.

_19__ Choices marked on "eballots" are posted for public view and are not bound by confidentiality under the behavior of officers of the Parliament.

No reply email will be sent to voters who cast eballots other than a verification message, unless the voter indicates that he/she wishes to be self appointed to the www.international-parliament.org site or when a question regarding verification or validation is raised by a volunteer vote counter.

_21__ Volunteer vote counters may be added to the exploder email address vvc "at" allpartysystem "dot" org as a subscriber by sending the message "subscribe" to vvc "at" allpartysystem "dot" org.

All ballots released to public used by the International Parliament's elected secretaries shall count as a legitimate ballot and shall be presumed to represent the correct and most current candidate name information.

_27__ BALLOT: ORDER OF NOMINEES of all names in the parliament elections and subsidiary parliament elections will be determined by the results caused by the voters' ranking of the nominees on the previous election's ballots. This is known as the correct consecutive order of nominee. Appointments and self-appointments will be listed chronologically.

_29__ NOMINEE ACCEPTANCE AND WRITE-INS: Only names who formally ACCEPT the nomination of their name, self write-in names and those currently already elected will qualify for the ballot/eballot for the International Parliament. There will be a cap at 500 names for the ballot/eballot for the free elections of MIPs.

_30__ A verifiable name and contact information must be provided in order to qualify as a nominee for the (e)ballot.

* * *

Upon approval of this bylaw item, all Senators' current donation levels,
shall have their previous fee levels apply retroactively to new benefits
under the same five fee levels with corresponding cost payments.

"Voting Stoppage"

Whenever a financial crisis occurs where the costs for paying basic maintenance of the International Parliament are not being met, including the costs of domain hosting, web design and obligations to all of the Senators, then the Treasury and/or Vote Counting Ministry can place end to all introductions of free membership sign ups of Members of International Parliament (MIPs) and other free services provided by the Vote Counting Ministry and this ending will be known as a "voting stoppage".

This bylaw item can also affect the internal Cabinet voting by Ministers, but it will not include/affect "votes of confidence" by the MIPs, voting by Senators current in dues and the voting for election of Cabinet Ministers (parliamentary go-ahead) by the Ten Executives.

The voting stoppage will terminate either upon the recommendation/consensus to end it by both the Treasury and Vote Counting Ministries, or once the numbers of Senators reaches the same number of free MIPs within the general International Parliament's assembly membership.

Diplomatic Passports

Some ministers and deputies will be traveling a lot abroad. At the airports and borders a diplomatic passport would make sense. Even for the professional legitimacy to foreign politicians.

ID Cards

For activities within the country an ID card is sufficient. However, a professionally designed plastic card should be used here. Since the International Parliament nevertheless plays an important role in the world standard, you should already pay attention to a professional public image.

_38__ Once the top Senator seats are assigned based on ranking of donation level, then lower ranked donors "spill over" into the "Senator MPs" section of the subsidiary Republic of Earth, the country from which the donor originated.

_39__ The Senator's donation will be recorded and should the Senator ever wish to "stand down", then the donation amount will be not be refunded.

_40__ The numbers of seats for Senators shall never be more than the number of free elected members of International Parliament (MIPs).

_41__ The Senators may vote on Senate guidelines and decisions from time to time but there is no requirement for such votes which are voluntary only. These compilation of votes will be conducted only by the Senators themselves.

_42__ Should a MIP who had been elected to a free seat, then be unelected and their name is no longer an elected free member, then their name will be automatically reinstated as a Senator, BoD, committee member and/or the same particular seat title in any subsidiary Republic of Earth, if their donation remained on the International Parliament's records.

_43__ All Senators shall have access to all financial records for the International Parliament. More detailed information which isn't available on the Treasury Ministry's web page will be made available within 90 days to Senators when a request is made in writing to the Treasury Minister.

_44__ All payments are to be in US dollars only unless pre-approval is obtained from the Treasury Ministry.

_45__ The International Parliament will not ever hold any election in a single- winner district where a single-winner decision or name is elected.

_46__ Ballot Preparation

_47__ SPACE FOR THREE OR MORE WRITE-IN choices must be provided on each and every ballot, in all elections.

_48__ CATEGORIZATION AND PARTY NAMES The first and most important criterion in determining the nominee's party/category is the nominee's most recently requested or declared party/category in Parliament matters. The second most important criterion in determining the nominee's party/category is determined by the nominee's state's records, as written by the member while registering to vote. Appointed members may be categorized with any party/category that they wish, and the party/category of all members is considered to be the true one. Elected members may decide to change or switch their party/categorization at any time by proclamation. Members automatically qualify for the ballot in the next election cycle under the party/category of their choice.

_49__ First and last names are preferred, however all names nominated will be permitted on the ballot as well as the party/category of the nominee. If party/category is not known, the label "[Info. Not Avail.]" will be used. A nominee's name (and thus identity) may appear on the ballot only once, so fusion voting is not allowed. All world citizens who had signed up since "RESOLUTION NUMBER 1" was first approved on 10/27/2014 will be automatically added as MIPs retroactively within seven days after the approval of this bylaw item #39.

_50__ RESIGNATIONS. When any elected member, executive or minister, stands down, resigns, retires, or dies - the name is deleted. Then the next highest ranked name is automatically elected to the seat in their stead.

_51__ When a candidate who has chosen to stand down but then wishes to return to the position which they had departed, then they must first be re-affirmed by all the voters who had previously cast a vote for them.

_52__ TEN EXECUTIVES

_53__ MIPs: Once elected, all new Members of International Parliament (MIPs) may change their vote as a "vote of confidence" for the ten executives into perpetuity.

_54__ THE VOICE of the International Parliament will be the ten executives.

_55__ Each of the elected ten executives may pick a seat title once elected.

_56__ The ten executives elect up to sixty full Cabinet Ministers and sixty Deputy Cabinet Ministers using the "parliamentary go-ahead.

_57__ The International Parliament's ten executives agree to rank all names nominated by each of the other nine executives, thus guaranteeing that each of the ten executives elects 1/10th of the 60 cabinet ministers and this is known as the "parliamentary go-ahead".

_58__ THE TEN EXECUTIVES recruit as many people as possible who will work in the Cabinet to run the efforts, elects the planks on the platform and run the parliament's efforts free from political conflict or bias. The executives do not control who gets elected to the general assembly.

_59__ The ten executives of the International Parliament (IP) will serve as "Founding Executives" on the unity business entity named "All Party System Co., International Bureau", which is established in order to report all unifying news, business, financial matters, vote counting and results of vote counting of the IP to the public and to serve as a store for generating sales of products and services..

_60__ SIXTY CABINET MINISTERS

_61__ MINISTRY: A simple majority vote by at least six of the ten executives establishes the parliamentary go-ahead and will elect new Ministers, even without the parliamentary go-ahead.

_62__ MINISTRY DIRECTORS: Ministries may elect up to fifty Directors and any number of resolutions, agenda items, guidelines and administrators. The fifty Directors must be elected in one at-large district and their titles as "Directors" may be any title, for example each director may pick their own title too.

_63__ All International national Cabinet Ministers must be live, real people and no avatars or anonymous names may be used by the elected Cabinet Ministers. Only real names can be used and verification of the member's true name may be requested when such verifications are of interest from anyone of the ten executives.

_64__ HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES MINISTRY: The book "Know Thyself, Your Body's Wisdom for Living Consciously" will be added as a guide to the proposed Health and Human Services Ministry web page. For many ages, humanity has been confused about what decisions regenerate and degenerate our living systems. The Body itself has always held this wisdom of natural laws for our organ/gland functioning on 253 circuits of personal powers (but not always available until infrared could shine the light on it). The Body's own immense wisdom can show us how our next decision degenerates us or regenerates us (based on 40 years of scientific research using infrared technology that can be tracked, measured and decoded by the Language of the Body itself). This Self Evident and undeniable truth from our energetic design makes it an unparalleled guide to help humans make decisions (about voting, laws, or new customs, etc.) that can regenerate us from within as well as from without. (http://www.consciousnesssystems.com [1] to read the book). Also, VOLUNTARY LAW: The blog site http://vlda.org/, the Voluntary Law Development Association, owned by Jonathan Jaech will be added to the proposed

_65__ VOLUNTARY LAW MINISTRY: The Voluntary Law Ministry web page and can accompany 'Know Thyself, Your Body's Wisdom for Living Consciously' (that can both be used as the foundational principles for voluntary international law). These 2 sources of wisdom can promote peace, love and the clarity of energetic truth for successful ways to promote each living systems' regeneration.
The blog site http://vlda.org/, the Voluntary Law Development Association, owned by Jonathan Jaech will be added to the proposed VOLUNTARY LAW MINISTRY web page and will be used as the foundation for voluntary international law.

_66__ VOTE COUNTING MINISTRY: The Vote Counting Ministry will make an annual award for the "United Coalition Secure Paper Ballot Award".

_67__ TREASURY MINISTRY: The Treasury Minister of the International Parliament will be accountable only to the ten executives of the International Parliament through a vote of confidence. The Treasury Ministry is where specific records and agreements are posted for the public. The Treasury Ministry will maintain all records for Senators (donor MIPs) and other financial records such as revenue inflow, Senator mailing addresses, contact information and rankings, bank account savings and expenditures.

_68__ MEDIATION AND CONCILIATION MINISTRY: Appeals of a name's removal action may be taken to the Mediation and Conciliation Service Minister where rules for such appeals will be written, voted upon and approved.
Should any financial compensation be asked for or awarded after an appeal had been heard and a ruling had been finalized by the International national Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service Minister which is charged with recommending such financial compensation, then the case can be taken to the All Party System Co.'s International Bureau's Ethics & Grievances Committee of Four where a determination of the exact amount can be made and executed.

_69__ United Coalition

_70__ Declare that all of the elected and appointed members of the International Parliament, all countries' national parliaments, all subsidiary super-state, mini-state and county micro-state parliaments, to be members of a national and international "Unity Coalition" or "United Coalition" effective November 5th, 2014.

_71__ The International Parliament's subsidiary Republic "Unity Coalition" elections shall be in two phases; one before the country's primaries and one after the country's primaries. That way, a strong emphasis can be placed on official state-recognized ballot-qualified and write-in candidates both before the primaries and after the primaries, and the dates are customized for each of the country's official primaries.

_72__ UNITY PLATFORM

_73__ Conduct an international Direct Democracy (DD) election which will elect planks to a "Unity Platform".

_74__ The promotion of the Unity Coalition's "Unity Platform" can used used as an example of teamwork. The team can be promoted as being dynamic so that every item is up for a continual "vote of confidence" by all the members, all the time. That way, the recruitment of new members can take place in order to collect more votes for improving the planks on the Unity Platform.

_75__ PLANKS OF THE PLATFORM: The ten elected executives shall elect the UNITY PLATFORM with a series of "planks" from all the items they pick and rank from the DD election.

_76__ Guideline of Priority and Procedure

_77__ GENERAL PROVISIONS: Guideline of Priority and Procedure. The GUIDELINES contained on this web page shall be the official first GUIDELINES of procedure for the International Parliament and will be used for all transactions of business once ratified by a majority of the Members of Parliament (MPs). These GUIDELINES will take precedence over any other set of GUIDELINES.

_78__ GUIDELINE CHANGES: The Executive Committee reserves the right to make changes in these GUIDELINES by 6/10th vote and to present these changes to the delegates/members at any time. All changes should accommodate the desires or complaints of the MPs or staff so as to improve the conduct of business online and offline.

_79__ EXECUTIVES: The Executives of the International Parliament may select or approve persons to serve as Chairpersons, Legal Counsels, and Secretaries for each committee and any other position to help conduct the business.

_80__ CHAIR PERSON: Absence of Chairperson. If the Chair should find it necessary to be absent during any part of a committee meeting, he/she shall designate an individual (preferably the Legal Counsel) to assume his/her duties with the same authority.
General Authority of the Chairperson. In addition to exercising such authority conferred upon the Chair elsewhere in these GUIDELINES, the Chair shall declare the opening and closing of each session of the committee, direct its discussions, ensure observance of these GUIDELINES, accord the right to speak, put questions to a vote, and announce decisions of the committee.

_81__ Statements by the Executives. The ten elected Executives, or any person designated by the ten elected Executives, may at any time make oral or written statements to a committee.

_82__ MEMBERS: Number of Accredited Delegates. The number of delegates allowed on any delegation of the Parliament shall be limited to MIPs and Donor MIPs only.

_83__ DIPLOMATIC COURTESY: All delegates MUST accord all other delegates diplomatic courtesy at all times. Any delegate or visitor who, after being advised by the Chair, persists in an obvious attempt to divert the meeting from its intended purpose, or who otherwise attempts to disrupt the proceedings, shall be subject to disciplinary action and expulsion by the Chairperson.

_84__ AGENDA

_85__ AGENDA Selection of Agenda Items. Agenda items shall be selected by the Executive Committee. Once selected, these items are fixed for the duration of the conference and no other items will be discussed.

_86__ ORDER OF CONSIDERATION OF AGENDA ITEMS: Agenda items will be considered in the order in which they appear in the agenda eballot, unless that order is altered by a majority of the Committee.
The first set of agenda items approved by the majority (6 of ten minimum) will be known as "RESOLUTION NUMBER 2".
As new Executives are elected, the incoming executives will be asked to approve (or decline) all previous RESOLUTIONS and should the number of approving executives falls below a 6/10ths majority of Executives then the RESOLUTION is considered unelected, invalid and withdrawn. Only resolutions that retain a majority support of the Ten Executives can be considered approved.
New executives have 60 days following the election of their name to approve all RESOLUTIONS beginning with RESOLUTION NUMBER 2, 3, 4, etc. and RESOLUTION NUMBER 1 is not affected by incoming and outgoing executives because the majority coalition electing RESOLUTION NUMBER 1 consists of MIPs of whom Executives may be one.

_87__ PRIOR APPROVED RESOLUTIONS: Order of Consideration of Prior-Approved Resolutions. Prior-approved resolutions are resolutions that were received by the specified deadline and were deemed appropriate by the staff. They will receive priority over other resolutions. The order of appearance of resolutions before the Committee is determined by the date in which they were received, and is listed under the appropriate committee topic in that order in the resolution book by the Secretary. When the Chair opens debate on any agenda item, any delegate may move for consideration of an approved resolution on the agenda item that has been submitted to the chair with signatories of 1/8 of the delegations present. If the motion is seconded, the Chair will direct the committee to an immediate vote without debate on the motion, a majority being required for consideration. If no resolution receives a majority vote in favor of consideration, the Committee will automatically have before it for consideration the first resolution in the resolution book under that agenda item that has been received by the chair with the appropriate number of signatories.

_88__ CONSIDERATION OF RESOLUTIONS WITHOUT PRIOR APPROVAL: Resolutions that were not received by the specified deadline may still be considered, but not until 1/2 of the prior approved resolutions on the agenda item have been considered. For a resolution without prior approval to be considered, it must relate to the committee topic currently being debated, be submitted to the chair with signatories of 1/8 of the delegations present, and the delegate must supply enough copies of the resolution for each delegation present. Once these conditions have been met, any delegate may move for consideration of the resolution. If the motion is seconded, the chair will direct the committee to an immediate vote without debate on the motion, a majority being required for consideration.

_89__ SUBSTANTIVE PROPOSALS: Delegates will receive selected resolutions for consideration no later than at the time of the conference registration. The delegates must submit resolutions in the proper form by the deadline set by the Executive Committee.

_90__ Reporting Resolutions to the Parliament. The Chair of each committee shall report resolutions passed by that committee to the Parliament for its consideration. If a committee fails to approve a resolution on an agenda item, it shall submit a "Declaration of No Report" on that agenda item. That topic area will not be considered by the Parliament.

_91__ Amendments. All amendments to resolutions must be signed by one sponsoring delegation and at least one other seconding delegation; they must be submitted on an official amendment form for approval by the Legal Counsel and must be labeled with an identifying number by the Secretary. Secondary amendments and amendments by substitution are not acceptable. Obvious typographical efforts will be brought to the Committee's attention and collected by the Chair with no vote required. To move an amendment to the floor, recognition by the Chair and introduction of the amendment will suffice; no vote shall be required. Once an amendment has been brought to the floor, the Committee shall consider only the amendments and not the Resolutions until final action on the amendment has been taken (except to the extent that the amendment pertains to the Resolution).

_92__ Definition of Amendment and Voting on Amendments. An amendment is a motion that adds to, deletes from, or revises any part of a resolution. A series of alterations proposed by a single delegation to the same resolution shall be considered as a single amendment unless a motion is made to divide it.

_93__ Closure of Debate. A delegate may move to close debate at any time on any matter. Such a motion closes all substantive debate on the matters before the body at that time, except when such a motion would interrupt a speaker. Two delegates may speak against closure, and the motion will then be put to a vote. During debate on an amendment, a delegate may move for closure of debate on the resolution. If closure passes, then the amendment shall be voted on first followed by the resolution.

_94__ Move a Resolution to the Floor. Used to bring an approved resolution to the floor, this motion may not interrupt a speaker and is not debatable. No second is required.

_95__ DEBATE AND SPEECH GUIDELINES: Speeches. No delegate may address the committee without having previously obtained the permission of the Chair. The Chair shall call upon speakers in the order in which they signify their desire to speak. Delegates may not interrupt a speaker except on a point of order or point of personal privilege. Abusing these rights may be considered violations of diplomatic courtesy, and can result in disciplinary action taken by the chair. Motions should be made at the conclusion of the speaker's remarks; by making a motion, the speaker yields the floor.

_96__ Time Limit on Debate. The committee or the Chair may limit or extend the time allotted to each speaker and the number of times each delegate may speak on a proposal. There may be one speaker in favor and one opposed to the limitation/extension.

_97__ Right of Reply. During debate, the Chair may accord the right of reply to any delegate if a speech by another delegate contains unusual or extraordinary language clearly insulting to personal or national dignity. The decision granting a right of reply may not be appealed. Requests for a right of reply shall be in writing to the Chair. The Chair will limit the time for the reply. There shall be no reply to a reply.

_98__ POINTS - IN ORDER OF PRIORITY

Point of Order. If, during the discussion of any matter, a delegate believes that the committee is proceeding in a manner contrary to these GUIDELINES, he or she may rise to a point of order. The delegate so rising will be immediately recognized by the Chair and the point ruled upon. A delegate rising to a point of order may not speak on the substance of any matter under discussion.

Point of Personal Privilege. If a delegate wishes to raise a question or make a request relating to the organization of the meeting, personal comfort, or the conduct of fellow delegates or staff, he/she may rise to a point of personal privilege. When a delegate rises on privilege, the Chair shall take such action as is necessary.

Point of Parliamentary Inquiry. A point of parliamentary inquiry is directed to the Chair for information or guidance on procedure. This point may not interrupt the speaker. It is a question and does not require seconding or allow for debate. Replies by the Chair are not appealable.

Point of Information. If a delegate wishes to obtain a clarification of procedure or a statement of the matter before the committee, the delegate may address a point of information to the Chair. During debate, if a delegate wishes to ask a question of the speaker, a request to question the speaker may be made in the form of a point of information directed to the Chair after the speaker consents to be questioned, all questions and replies are made through the Chair. Delegates shall not interrupt a speaker on a point of information.

_99__ MOTIONS - ORDER OF PROCEDURAL MOTIONS

The motions as indicated in the Short Form of Points and Motions have precedence, in the order given, over all other proposals or motions before the committee.

Adjournment of Debate. During the discussion of any matter, a delegate may move the adjournment of debate on that matter. One delegate may speak in favor of the motion and one opposed. The motion shall then be put to an immediate vote. Adjournment of debate on a resolution or amendment has the effect of tabling that item and moves the committee on to the next order of business. See also 8.9 on Reconsideration.

Closure of Debate. A delegate may move to close debate at any time on any matter. Such a motion closes all substantive debate on the matters before the body at that time, except when such a motion would interrupt a speaker. Two delegates may speak against closure, and the motion will then be put to a vote. During debate on an amendment, a delegate may move for closure of debate on the resolution. if closure passes, then the amendment shall be voted on first followed by the resolution.

Move a Resolution to the Floor. Used to bring an approved resolution to the floor, this motion may not interrupt a speaker and is not debatable. No second is required.

Suspension of the Meeting. During the discussion of any matter, a delegate may move to suspend the meeting. Suspending a meeting recesses it until the time specified in the motion; the Chair may request the mover to modify the time. When the committee reconvenes it will continue with its business from the point at which suspension was moved.

Adjournment of the Meeting. The motion of adjournment means that all business of the committee has been completed, and that the committee win not reconvene until the next Annual Session. The Chair may refuse to recognize a motion to adjourn the meeting if the Committee still has business before it. A motion to adjourn is not debatable, and will be put to an immediate vote.

Decisions of Competence. Any motion calling for a decision on the competence of the Committee to discuss or adopt a proposal shall be put to a vote before the vote is taken on the proposal in question. If a Committee decides it is not competent to discuss or vote on an amendment or resolution, the effect is the same as adjourning debate on the matter. See also 8.9 on Reconsideration.

Withdrawal of Motions. A motion may be withdrawn by its proposer at any time before voting on it has begun, provided the motion has not been amended. A withdrawn motion may be reintroduced by any other delegation.

Reconsideration of Proposals. When a proposal has been adopted, or rejected through a vote of adjournment or "no competence", it may be reconsidered at the same session by an affirmative vote of two-thirds of the members present and voting. The motion to reconsider must be made by a delegation which originally voted on the prevailing side of the proposal; thus, reconsideration may be moved only on the proposals voted on by roll-call.

Division of the Question. A motion to divide the question, proposing that parts of an amendment or resolution be voted on separately, is in order at any time prior to commencement of voting on the amendment or resolution. Motions to divide shall apply only to operative clauses. Permission to speak on the motion shall be granted to one speaker in favor and one opposed, after which there shall be an immediate vote. The first motion for division to receive a majority vote shall become the final manner in which the proposal is presented. Those parts of the proposal which are approved shall be put to a vote as a whole. If all operative clauses of a proposal have been rejected, the proposal as a whole has been rejected.

Dilatory Motions. The Chair may rule as dilatory, and therefore out of order, any motion repeating or closely approximating a substantive measure on which the committee has already rendered an opinion. Such rulings can not be appealed.

Appealing a Decision of the Chair. Rulings of the chair can be appealed unless otherwise specified in these GUIDELINES. Appeals can be debated by one speaker in favor and one opposed.

_102__ VOTING METHODS AND RIGHTS: Each member delegation shall have one vote in each Committee in which it is represented. No delegate may cast a vote on behalf of another member.

_103__ Simple Majority. Unless otherwise specified in these GUIDELINES, decisions in the Committee shall be made by a majority vote of those members present and voting. The phrase "MSPs present and voting" refers to members casting ranked choice votes. Members which cast a final abstention are not voting. If a vote is equally divided between two sums of the same value, the motion fails.

_104__ Method of Voting. The Committee shall use ranked choice voting (RCV). The Chair, however, may grant a request for a roll-call vote; the decision to grant such a request is not appealable. All final votes on resolutions shall be taken by roll-call; the roll shall be called in English alphabetical order beginning with a person selected at random by the Secretary. Delegates shall reply "#1," or "abstain," or "abstain from the order of voting." A member may abstain from the order of voting once during the roll-call; a second abstention from the order of voting will be recorded as an abstention. Rights of explanation are permitted on roll-call votes and may be limited in time by the Chair. At the end of roll-call, but before rights of explanation and the subsequent announcement of the vote, the Secretary will ask for changes of vote. A delegation may not change from "0" to "#1", or "#1 with right of explanation" or from "0" to "0 with right of explanation." Those abstaining may be accorded rights of explanation. The result of the vote shall be inserted into the Committee record.

_105__ ONLINE VOTING: The International Parliament will conduct elections using online voting and all votes will be posted where they can be easily viewed by the public with the information as to who had cast the vote.

_106__ Conduct during Voting. Immediately prior to a vote, the Chair shall describe to the Committee the proposal to be voted on, and shall explain the consequence of a 1 or 0 vote. Voting shall begin upon the chair's declaration and shall end when the results of the vote are announced. Once voting has begun, no delegate shall interrupt the voting except on a point of order or information concerning the actual conduct of the vote, or on a point of personal privilege.

_109__ OPERATIVE CLAUSES are set out to achieve the committee's main policy goals on the topic.
Each operative clause begins with a number and ends with a semicolon (the final clause ends with a period).
Operative clauses should be organized in a logical progression, and each clause should contain a single idea or policy proposal.
Keep in mind that all resolutions except those passed by the simple majority of the executive are non-binding.
As a rule of thumb, good resolutions usually have an equal number or more operative phrases than preambulatory phrases.

The Board of Elections will hand tally the results from all the polling locations, again, two times by two different and diverse teams of counters with this being taped, recorded and broadcast and the public able to observe, tape and live-stream the entire proceedings. And, the same goes for what happens at the state level.

_9__ The polling location should serve a maximum of 1,000 voters and Election Day should be a national holiday with employers, if necessary, having to arrange for special accommodations for employees that must work, as with hospitals.

Additional Measures
Once 500 Members of International Parliament (MIPs) are elected, the following rules automatically take effect:
13.a Registered voters must meet stricter verification standards.
13.b Elected MIPs must also meet the same stricter verification standards.
13.c Registered voters and elected members must provide a signature drawn with black ink which will be used
for ID and verification and validation at conventions and this signature must also be provided before any vote takes effect.

or eballot then the first ten names are considered recipients of the ranked votes, but not names enumerated
number eleven (11) and after number eleven (11), which are affected. Once an automated voting system
is inplace, the limit of eleven rankings will not be required and will not be in effect.
13.k Senators with ID signatures on file may vote on MIP blank eballot upon receipt of signature.
13.l Once the signature and ID number is registered then the voter is encouraged to use the eballot,
but the paper ballot is also acceptable.
13.m Rules 13.a though 13.l do not apply to voting for Cabinet Directors and Ministry internal rules,
nor do they apply to Ten Executives votes for full and Deputy Cabinet Ministers.

_14__ General Counting, Balloting and Eballoting Guidelines for International Parliament Elections

_15__ RANKED VOTING ONLY: All voting and vote counting shall be in the form of ranked paper ballots only (and eballots when practical and verifiable). Consecutive numbers beginning with the #s 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. etc. must always be used when marking on (e)ballot of all alternative decisions or names. Deviation from this guideline will disqualify the ballot, and the ballot will be marked spoiled.

_16__ Pure proportional representation (PR) will be used.

_17__ THE SAINTE-LAGUE PARLIAMENT SYSTEM, Hagenbach-Bischoff method, under ranked choice voting, for seat allocation in all multi-seat districts:

Divide the election's total number of votes by the number of seats. This is the 1st quota.

Divide this quota into each candidate's votes, and round off to the nearest whole number. That's that candidate's seat allocation.

If, due to rounding, this awards a number of seats different from the desired number of seats, then adjust the quota slightly up or down, till, when paragraph two is carried out, it will award all seats.

_18__ Any resident of earth, nominee and/or proxy may observe the counting of the ballots. Volunteer counters will conduct the vote counting.

_19__ Choices marked on "eballots" are posted for public view and are not bound by confidentiality under the behavior of officers of the Parliament.

_20__ EBALLOTS are ballots cast via email and must be emailed to vvc "at" allpartysystem "dot" org, a private email address used by the secretary and observers for receiving such eballots. No reply email will be sent to voters who cast eballots other than a verification message, unless the voter indicates that he/she wishes to be self appointed to the www.international-parliament.org site or when a question regarding verification or validation is raised by a volunteer vote counter.

_21__ Volunteer vote counters may be added to the exploder email address vvc "at" allpartysystem "dot" org as a subscriber by sending the message "subscribe" to vvc "at" allpartysystem "dot" org.

_22__ Telephone voting is permissible, acceptable and verification and validations will be provided when requested.

_23__ Elections of rules shall be perpetual and the simple majority vote, by elected MIPs who vote on rules, passes rules.

_24__ BALLOTS AND EBALLOTS: All world residents are eligible to vote in International Parliament Elections 365 days year.

_25__ There will be five hundred members of International Parliament (MIPs) who are elected members self appointed/self nominated for free under ranked choice voting as one 500-member at-large district to be known as "MIPs" and five hundred members who are donors, ranked in order of donation level and are to be known as one 500-member at-large district to be known as "Senator" MIPs.

_26__ THE PARTY LEADER within the International Parliament is a label for the highest ranked name categorized under each party. Party leaders are responsible for the distribution of all ballots and rules to the members of their party/category and lists.

_27__ Such ballots may be retype set or altered to specifically identify their select nominees' correct name and party affiliation. All ballots released to public used by the International Parliament's elected secretaries shall count as a legitimate ballot and shall be presumed to represent the correct and most current candidate name information.

_27__ BALLOT: ORDER OF NOMINEES of all names in the parliament elections and subsidiary parliament elections will be determined by the results caused by the voters' ranking of the nominees on the previous election's ballots. This is known as the correct consecutive order of nominee. Appointments and self-appointments will be listed chronologically.

_29__ NOMINEE ACCEPTANCE AND WRITE-INS: Only names who formally ACCEPT the nomination of their name, self write-in names and those currently already elected will qualify for the ballot/eballot for the International Parliament. There will be a cap at 500 names for the ballot/eballot for the free elections of MIPs.

_30__ A verifiable name and contact information must be provided in order to qualify as a nominee for the (e)ballot.

_31__ The final order of the parties/categories on the final prepared ballot will be determined by the nominees' party name/category and the parties/categories and will be listed on the ballot in alphabetical order.

_32__ TIES: Ties will be broken by holding a runoff election only when called by one of the two secretaries. In all other cases, all the names/items in a tie will be included in the results and will be in a new "tied" category, even if the size of the assembly or agenda list must be expanded beyond normal size set forth by these rules.

_33__ ONLY ONE SINGLE PARLIAMENTARY BALLOT, IS PERMITTED TO BE MARKED BY EACH WORLD RESIDENT: All living world citizens may vote one time and only one time. In cases where a second ballot (or more) is cast, only the latter of the ballots will be counted, the former will be marked spoiled, deleted and regarded disqualified.

_34__ SENATORS

_35__ Once the donation/contribution is received, the donor's funds will be deposited into a bank account which is controlled by Treasury Minister, the President and the Vice President of the International Parliament.

_36__ Senators: All donors who contribute money to the international political entity known as the International Parliament (IP) at the minimum donation amount of $20., will promptly and automatically become known as "Senator" once the donation has been correctly registered with the Treasury Minister and/or is received by the appropriate clerk. The Senators will be grouped into five donor-level groups.

Senators are not elected during regular election cycles of the parliament's elections but they do receive all of the same voting rights plus special donor privileges which apply to the donation level of which the donor has achieved. The total donation amount will apply as both an annual sum or a total of multiple years. The annual sum is primarily for convention services and the sum from multiple years has a secondary purpose which can apply to different purposes other than the annual convention services.

* * *

Upon approval of this bylaw item, all Senators' current donation levels,
shall have their previous fee levels apply retroactively to new benefits
under the same five fee levels with corresponding cost payments.

"Voting Stoppage"

Whenever a financial crisis occurs where the costs for paying basic maintenance of the International Parliament are not being met, including the costs of domain hosting, web design and obligations to all of the Senators, then the Treasury and/or Vote Counting Ministry can place end to all introductions of free membership sign ups of Members of International Parliament (MIPs) and other free services provided by the Vote Counting Ministry and this ending will be known as a "voting stoppage".

This bylaw item can also affect the internal Cabinet voting by Ministers, but it will not include/affect "votes of confidence" by the MIPs, voting by Senators current in dues and the voting for election of Cabinet Ministers (parliamentary go-ahead) by the Ten Executives.

The voting stoppage will terminate either upon the recommendation/consensus to end it by both the Treasury and Vote Counting Ministries, or once the numbers of Senators reaches the same number of free MIPs within the general International Parliament's assembly membership.

Diplomatic Passports

Some ministers and deputies will be traveling a lot abroad. At the airports and borders a diplomatic passport would make sense. Even for the professional legitimacy to foreign politicians.

ID Cards

For activities within the country an ID card is sufficient. However, a professionally designed plastic card should be used here. Since the International Parliament nevertheless plays an important role in the world standard, you should already pay attention to a professional public image.

_38__ Once the top Senator seats are assigned based on ranking of donation level, then lower ranked donors "spill over" into the "Senator MPs" section of the subsidiary Republic of Earth, the country from which the donor originated.

_39__ The Senator's donation will be recorded and should the Senator ever wish to "stand down", then the donation amount will be not be refunded.

_40__ The numbers of seats for Senators shall never be more than the number of free elected members of International Parliament (MIPs).

_41__ The Senators may vote on Senate guidelines and decisions from time to time but there is no requirement for such votes which are voluntary only. These compilation of votes will be conducted only by the Senators themselves.

_42__ Should a MIP who had been elected to a free seat, then be unelected and their name is no longer an elected free member, then their name will be automatically reinstated as a Senator, BoD, committee member and/or the same particular seat title in any subsidiary Republic of Earth, if their donation remained on the International Parliament's records.

_43__ All Senators shall have access to all financial records for the International Parliament. More detailed information which isn't available on the Treasury Ministry's web page will be made available within 90 days to Senators when a request is made in writing to the Treasury Minister.

_44__ All payments are to be in US dollars only unless pre-approval is obtained from the Treasury Ministry.

_45__ The International Parliament will not ever hold any election in a single- winner district where a single-winner decision or name is elected.

_46__ Ballot Preparation

_47__ SPACE FOR THREE OR MORE WRITE-IN choices must be provided on each and every ballot, in all elections.

_48__ CATEGORIZATION AND PARTY NAMES The first and most important criterion in determining the nominee's party/category is the nominee's most recently requested or declared party/category in Parliament matters. The second most important criterion in determining the nominee's party/category is determined by the nominee's state's records, as written by the member while registering to vote. Appointed members may be categorized with any party/category that they wish, and the party/category of all members is considered to be the true one. Elected members may decide to change or switch their party/categorization at any time by proclamation. Members automatically qualify for the ballot in the next election cycle under the party/category of their choice.

_49__ First and last names are preferred, however all names nominated will be permitted on the ballot as well as the party/category of the nominee. If party/category is not known, the label "[Info. Not Avail.]" will be used. A nominee's name (and thus identity) may appear on the ballot only once, so fusion voting is not allowed. All world citizens who had signed up since "RESOLUTION NUMBER 1" was first approved on 10/27/2014 will be automatically added as MIPs retroactively within seven days after the approval of this bylaw item #39.

_50__ RESIGNATIONS. When any elected member, executive or minister, stands down, resigns, retires, or dies - the name is deleted. Then the next highest ranked name is automatically elected to the seat in their stead.

_51__ When a candidate who has chosen to stand down but then wishes to return to the position which they had departed, then they must first be re-affirmed by all the voters who had previously cast a vote for them.

_52__ TEN EXECUTIVES

_53__ MIPs: Once elected, all new Members of International Parliament (MIPs) may change their vote as a "vote of confidence" for the ten executives into perpetuity.

_54__ THE VOICE of the International Parliament will be the ten executives.

_55__ Each of the elected ten executives may pick a seat title once elected.

_56__ The ten executives elect up to sixty full Cabinet Ministers and sixty Deputy Cabinet Ministers using the "parliamentary go-ahead.

_57__ The International Parliament's ten executives agree to rank all names nominated by each of the other nine executives, thus guaranteeing that each of the ten executives elects 1/10th of the 60 cabinet ministers and this is known as the "parliamentary go-ahead".

_58__ THE TEN EXECUTIVES recruit as many people as possible who will work in the Cabinet to run the efforts, elects the planks on the platform and run the parliament's efforts free from political conflict or bias. The executives do not control who gets elected to the general assembly.

_59__ The ten executives of the International Parliament (IP) will serve as "Founding Executives" on the unity business entity named "All Party System Co., International Bureau", which is established in order to report all unifying news, business, financial matters, vote counting and results of vote counting of the IP to the public and to serve as a store for generating sales of products and services..

_60__ SIXTY CABINET MINISTERS

_61__ MINISTRY: A simple majority vote by at least six of the ten executives establishes the parliamentary go-ahead and will elect new Ministers, even without the parliamentary go-ahead.

_62__ MINISTRY DIRECTORS: Ministries may elect up to fifty Directors and any number of resolutions, agenda items, guidelines and administrators. The fifty Directors must be elected in one at-large district and their titles as "Directors" may be any title, for example each director may pick their own title too.

_63__ All International national Cabinet Ministers must be live, real people and no avatars or anonymous names may be used by the elected Cabinet Ministers. Only real names can be used and verification of the member's true name may be requested when such verifications are of interest from anyone of the ten executives.

_64__ HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES MINISTRY: The book "Know Thyself, Your Body's Wisdom for Living Consciously" will be added as a guide to the proposed Health and Human Services Ministry web page. For many ages, humanity has been confused about what decisions regenerate and degenerate our living systems. The Body itself has always held this wisdom of natural laws for our organ/gland functioning on 253 circuits of personal powers (but not always available until infrared could shine the light on it). The Body's own immense wisdom can show us how our next decision degenerates us or regenerates us (based on 40 years of scientific research using infrared technology that can be tracked, measured and decoded by the Language of the Body itself). This Self Evident and undeniable truth from our energetic design makes it an unparalleled guide to help humans make decisions (about voting, laws, or new customs, etc.) that can regenerate us from within as well as from without. (http://www.consciousnesssystems.com [1] to read the book). Also, VOLUNTARY LAW: The blog site http://vlda.org/, the Voluntary Law Development Association, owned by Jonathan Jaech will be added to the proposed

_65__ VOLUNTARY LAW MINISTRY: The Voluntary Law Ministry web page and can accompany 'Know Thyself, Your Body's Wisdom for Living Consciously' (that can both be used as the foundational principles for voluntary international law). These 2 sources of wisdom can promote peace, love and the clarity of energetic truth for successful ways to promote each living systems' regeneration.
The blog site http://vlda.org/, the Voluntary Law Development Association, owned by Jonathan Jaech will be added to the proposed VOLUNTARY LAW MINISTRY web page and will be used as the foundation for voluntary international law.

_66__ VOTE COUNTING MINISTRY: The Vote Counting Ministry will make an annual award for the "United Coalition Secure Paper Ballot Award".

_67__ TREASURY MINISTRY: The Treasury Minister of the International Parliament will be accountable only to the ten executives of the International Parliament through a vote of confidence. The Treasury Ministry is where specific records and agreements are posted for the public. The Treasury Ministry will maintain all records for Senators (donor MIPs) and other financial records such as revenue inflow, Senator mailing addresses, contact information and rankings, bank account savings and expenditures.

_68__ MEDIATION AND CONCILIATION MINISTRY: Appeals of a name's removal action may be taken to the Mediation and Conciliation Service Minister where rules for such appeals will be written, voted upon and approved.
Should any financial compensation be asked for or awarded after an appeal had been heard and a ruling had been finalized by the International national Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service Minister which is charged with recommending such financial compensation, then the case can be taken to the All Party System Co.'s International Bureau's Ethics & Grievances Committee of Four where a determination of the exact amount can be made and executed.

_69__ United Coalition

_70__ Declare that all of the elected and appointed members of the International Parliament, all countries' national parliaments, all subsidiary super-state, mini-state and county micro-state parliaments, to be members of a national and international "Unity Coalition" or "United Coalition" effective November 5th, 2014.

_71__ The International Parliament's subsidiary Republic "Unity Coalition" elections shall be in two phases; one before the country's primaries and one after the country's primaries. That way, a strong emphasis can be placed on official state-recognized ballot-qualified and write-in candidates both before the primaries and after the primaries, and the dates are customized for each of the country's official primaries.

_72__ UNITY PLATFORM

_73__ Conduct an international Direct Democracy (DD) election which will elect planks to a "Unity Platform".

_74__ The promotion of the Unity Coalition's "Unity Platform" can used used as an example of teamwork. The team can be promoted as being dynamic so that every item is up for a continual "vote of confidence" by all the members, all the time. That way, the recruitment of new members can take place in order to collect more votes for improving the planks on the Unity Platform.

_75__ PLANKS OF THE PLATFORM: The ten elected executives shall elect the UNITY PLATFORM with a series of "planks" from all the items they pick and rank from the DD election.

_76__ Guideline of Priority and Procedure

_77__ GENERAL PROVISIONS: Guideline of Priority and Procedure. The GUIDELINES contained on this web page shall be the official first GUIDELINES of procedure for the International Parliament and will be used for all transactions of business once ratified by a majority of the Members of Parliament (MPs). These GUIDELINES will take precedence over any other set of GUIDELINES.

_78__ GUIDELINE CHANGES: The Executive Committee reserves the right to make changes in these GUIDELINES by 6/10th vote and to present these changes to the delegates/members at any time. All changes should accommodate the desires or complaints of the MPs or staff so as to improve the conduct of business online and offline.

_79__ EXECUTIVES: The Executives of the International Parliament may select or approve persons to serve as Chairpersons, Legal Counsels, and Secretaries for each committee and any other position to help conduct the business.

_80__ CHAIR PERSON: Absence of Chairperson. If the Chair should find it necessary to be absent during any part of a committee meeting, he/she shall designate an individual (preferably the Legal Counsel) to assume his/her duties with the same authority.
General Authority of the Chairperson. In addition to exercising such authority conferred upon the Chair elsewhere in these GUIDELINES, the Chair shall declare the opening and closing of each session of the committee, direct its discussions, ensure observance of these GUIDELINES, accord the right to speak, put questions to a vote, and announce decisions of the committee.

_81__ Statements by the Executives. The ten elected Executives, or any person designated by the ten elected Executives, may at any time make oral or written statements to a committee.

_82__ MEMBERS: Number of Accredited Delegates. The number of delegates allowed on any delegation of the Parliament shall be limited to MIPs and Donor MIPs only.

_83__ DIPLOMATIC COURTESY: All delegates MUST accord all other delegates diplomatic courtesy at all times. Any delegate or visitor who, after being advised by the Chair, persists in an obvious attempt to divert the meeting from its intended purpose, or who otherwise attempts to disrupt the proceedings, shall be subject to disciplinary action and expulsion by the Chairperson.

_84__ AGENDA

_85__ AGENDA Selection of Agenda Items. Agenda items shall be selected by the Executive Committee. Once selected, these items are fixed for the duration of the conference and no other items will be discussed.

_86__ ORDER OF CONSIDERATION OF AGENDA ITEMS: Agenda items will be considered in the order in which they appear in the agenda eballot, unless that order is altered by a majority of the Committee.
The first set of agenda items approved by the majority (6 of ten minimum) will be known as "RESOLUTION NUMBER 2".
As new Executives are elected, the incoming executives will be asked to approve (or decline) all previous RESOLUTIONS and should the number of approving executives falls below a 6/10ths majority of Executives then the RESOLUTION is considered unelected, invalid and withdrawn. Only resolutions that retain a majority support of the Ten Executives can be considered approved.
New executives have 60 days following the election of their name to approve all RESOLUTIONS beginning with RESOLUTION NUMBER 2, 3, 4, etc. and RESOLUTION NUMBER 1 is not affected by incoming and outgoing executives because the majority coalition electing RESOLUTION NUMBER 1 consists of MIPs of whom Executives may be one.

_87__ PRIOR APPROVED RESOLUTIONS: Order of Consideration of Prior-Approved Resolutions. Prior-approved resolutions are resolutions that were received by the specified deadline and were deemed appropriate by the staff. They will receive priority over other resolutions. The order of appearance of resolutions before the Committee is determined by the date in which they were received, and is listed under the appropriate committee topic in that order in the resolution book by the Secretary. When the Chair opens debate on any agenda item, any delegate may move for consideration of an approved resolution on the agenda item that has been submitted to the chair with signatories of 1/8 of the delegations present. If the motion is seconded, the Chair will direct the committee to an immediate vote without debate on the motion, a majority being required for consideration. If no resolution receives a majority vote in favor of consideration, the Committee will automatically have before it for consideration the first resolution in the resolution book under that agenda item that has been received by the chair with the appropriate number of signatories.

_88__ CONSIDERATION OF RESOLUTIONS WITHOUT PRIOR APPROVAL: Resolutions that were not received by the specified deadline may still be considered, but not until 1/2 of the prior approved resolutions on the agenda item have been considered. For a resolution without prior approval to be considered, it must relate to the committee topic currently being debated, be submitted to the chair with signatories of 1/8 of the delegations present, and the delegate must supply enough copies of the resolution for each delegation present. Once these conditions have been met, any delegate may move for consideration of the resolution. If the motion is seconded, the chair will direct the committee to an immediate vote without debate on the motion, a majority being required for consideration.

_89__ SUBSTANTIVE PROPOSALS: Delegates will receive selected resolutions for consideration no later than at the time of the conference registration. The delegates must submit resolutions in the proper form by the deadline set by the Executive Committee.

_90__ Reporting Resolutions to the Parliament. The Chair of each committee shall report resolutions passed by that committee to the Parliament for its consideration. If a committee fails to approve a resolution on an agenda item, it shall submit a "Declaration of No Report" on that agenda item. That topic area will not be considered by the Parliament.

_91__ Amendments. All amendments to resolutions must be signed by one sponsoring delegation and at least one other seconding delegation; they must be submitted on an official amendment form for approval by the Legal Counsel and must be labeled with an identifying number by the Secretary. Secondary amendments and amendments by substitution are not acceptable. Obvious typographical efforts will be brought to the Committee's attention and collected by the Chair with no vote required. To move an amendment to the floor, recognition by the Chair and introduction of the amendment will suffice; no vote shall be required. Once an amendment has been brought to the floor, the Committee shall consider only the amendments and not the Resolutions until final action on the amendment has been taken (except to the extent that the amendment pertains to the Resolution).

_92__ Definition of Amendment and Voting on Amendments. An amendment is a motion that adds to, deletes from, or revises any part of a resolution. A series of alterations proposed by a single delegation to the same resolution shall be considered as a single amendment unless a motion is made to divide it.

_93__ Closure of Debate. A delegate may move to close debate at any time on any matter. Such a motion closes all substantive debate on the matters before the body at that time, except when such a motion would interrupt a speaker. Two delegates may speak against closure, and the motion will then be put to a vote. During debate on an amendment, a delegate may move for closure of debate on the resolution. If closure passes, then the amendment shall be voted on first followed by the resolution.

_94__ Move a Resolution to the Floor. Used to bring an approved resolution to the floor, this motion may not interrupt a speaker and is not debatable. No second is required.

_95__ DEBATE AND SPEECH GUIDELINES: Speeches. No delegate may address the committee without having previously obtained the permission of the Chair. The Chair shall call upon speakers in the order in which they signify their desire to speak. Delegates may not interrupt a speaker except on a point of order or point of personal privilege. Abusing these rights may be considered violations of diplomatic courtesy, and can result in disciplinary action taken by the chair. Motions should be made at the conclusion of the speaker's remarks; by making a motion, the speaker yields the floor.

_96__ Time Limit on Debate. The committee or the Chair may limit or extend the time allotted to each speaker and the number of times each delegate may speak on a proposal. There may be one speaker in favor and one opposed to the limitation/extension.

_97__ Right of Reply. During debate, the Chair may accord the right of reply to any delegate if a speech by another delegate contains unusual or extraordinary language clearly insulting to personal or national dignity. The decision granting a right of reply may not be appealed. Requests for a right of reply shall be in writing to the Chair. The Chair will limit the time for the reply. There shall be no reply to a reply.

_98__ POINTS - IN ORDER OF PRIORITY

Point of Order. If, during the discussion of any matter, a delegate believes that the committee is proceeding in a manner contrary to these GUIDELINES, he or she may rise to a point of order. The delegate so rising will be immediately recognized by the Chair and the point ruled upon. A delegate rising to a point of order may not speak on the substance of any matter under discussion.

Point of Personal Privilege. If a delegate wishes to raise a question or make a request relating to the organization of the meeting, personal comfort, or the conduct of fellow delegates or staff, he/she may rise to a point of personal privilege. When a delegate rises on privilege, the Chair shall take such action as is necessary.

Point of Parliamentary Inquiry. A point of parliamentary inquiry is directed to the Chair for information or guidance on procedure. This point may not interrupt the speaker. It is a question and does not require seconding or allow for debate. Replies by the Chair are not appealable.

Point of Information. If a delegate wishes to obtain a clarification of procedure or a statement of the matter before the committee, the delegate may address a point of information to the Chair. During debate, if a delegate wishes to ask a question of the speaker, a request to question the speaker may be made in the form of a point of information directed to the Chair after the speaker consents to be questioned, all questions and replies are made through the Chair. Delegates shall not interrupt a speaker on a point of information.

_99__ MOTIONS - ORDER OF PROCEDURAL MOTIONS

The motions as indicated in the Short Form of Points and Motions have precedence, in the order given, over all other proposals or motions before the committee.

Adjournment of Debate. During the discussion of any matter, a delegate may move the adjournment of debate on that matter. One delegate may speak in favor of the motion and one opposed. The motion shall then be put to an immediate vote. Adjournment of debate on a resolution or amendment has the effect of tabling that item and moves the committee on to the next order of business. See also 8.9 on Reconsideration.

Closure of Debate. A delegate may move to close debate at any time on any matter. Such a motion closes all substantive debate on the matters before the body at that time, except when such a motion would interrupt a speaker. Two delegates may speak against closure, and the motion will then be put to a vote. During debate on an amendment, a delegate may move for closure of debate on the resolution. if closure passes, then the amendment shall be voted on first followed by the resolution.

Move a Resolution to the Floor. Used to bring an approved resolution to the floor, this motion may not interrupt a speaker and is not debatable. No second is required.

Suspension of the Meeting. During the discussion of any matter, a delegate may move to suspend the meeting. Suspending a meeting recesses it until the time specified in the motion; the Chair may request the mover to modify the time. When the committee reconvenes it will continue with its business from the point at which suspension was moved.

Adjournment of the Meeting. The motion of adjournment means that all business of the committee has been completed, and that the committee win not reconvene until the next Annual Session. The Chair may refuse to recognize a motion to adjourn the meeting if the Committee still has business before it. A motion to adjourn is not debatable, and will be put to an immediate vote.

Decisions of Competence. Any motion calling for a decision on the competence of the Committee to discuss or adopt a proposal shall be put to a vote before the vote is taken on the proposal in question. If a Committee decides it is not competent to discuss or vote on an amendment or resolution, the effect is the same as adjourning debate on the matter. See also 8.9 on Reconsideration.

Withdrawal of Motions. A motion may be withdrawn by its proposer at any time before voting on it has begun, provided the motion has not been amended. A withdrawn motion may be reintroduced by any other delegation.

Reconsideration of Proposals. When a proposal has been adopted, or rejected through a vote of adjournment or "no competence", it may be reconsidered at the same session by an affirmative vote of two-thirds of the members present and voting. The motion to reconsider must be made by a delegation which originally voted on the prevailing side of the proposal; thus, reconsideration may be moved only on the proposals voted on by roll-call.

Division of the Question. A motion to divide the question, proposing that parts of an amendment or resolution be voted on separately, is in order at any time prior to commencement of voting on the amendment or resolution. Motions to divide shall apply only to operative clauses. Permission to speak on the motion shall be granted to one speaker in favor and one opposed, after which there shall be an immediate vote. The first motion for division to receive a majority vote shall become the final manner in which the proposal is presented. Those parts of the proposal which are approved shall be put to a vote as a whole. If all operative clauses of a proposal have been rejected, the proposal as a whole has been rejected.

Dilatory Motions. The Chair may rule as dilatory, and therefore out of order, any motion repeating or closely approximating a substantive measure on which the committee has already rendered an opinion. Such rulings can not be appealed.

Appealing a Decision of the Chair. Rulings of the chair can be appealed unless otherwise specified in these GUIDELINES. Appeals can be debated by one speaker in favor and one opposed.

Rights of explanation are permitted on roll-call votes and may be limited in time by the Chair. At the end of roll-call, but before rights of explanation and the subsequent announcement of the vote, the Secretary will ask for changes of vote. A delegation may not change from "0" to "#1", or "#1 with right of explanation" or from "0" to "0 with right of explanation." Those abstaining may be accorded rights of explanation. The result of the vote shall be inserted into the Committee record.

Upon approval of this bylaw item, all Senators' current donation levels,
shall have their previous fee levels apply retroactively to new benefits
under the same five fee levels with corresponding cost payments.

"Voting Stoppage"

Whenever a financial crisis occurs where the costs for paying basic maintenance of the International Parliament are not being met, including the costs of domain hosting, web design and obligations to all of the Senators, then the Treasury and/or Vote Counting Ministry can place end to all introductions of free membership sign ups of Members of International Parliament (MIPs) and other free services provided by the Vote Counting Ministry and this ending will be known as a "voting stoppage".

This bylaw item can also affect the internal Cabinet voting by Ministers, but it will not include/affect "votes of confidence" by the MIPs, voting by Senators current in dues and the voting for election of Cabinet Ministers (parliamentary go-ahead) by the Ten Executives.

The voting stoppage will terminate either upon the recommendation/consensus to end it by both the Treasury and Vote Counting Ministries, or once the numbers of Senators reaches the same number of free MIPs within the general International Parliament's assembly membership.

Diplomatic Passports

Some ministers and deputies will be traveling a lot abroad. At the airports and borders a diplomatic passport would make sense. Even for the professional legitimacy to foreign politicians.

ID Cards

For activities within the country an ID card is sufficient. However, a professionally designed plastic card should be used here. Since the International Parliament nevertheless plays an important role in the world standard, you should already pay attention to a professional public image.

_38__ Once the top Senator seats are assigned based on ranking of donation level, then lower ranked donors "spill over" into the "Senator MPs" section of the subsidiary Republic of Earth, the country from which the donor originated.

_39__ The Senator's donation will be recorded and should the Senator ever wish to "stand down", then the donation amount will be not be refunded.

_40__ The numbers of seats for Senators shall never be more than the number of free elected members of International Parliament (MIPs).

_41__ The Senators may vote on Senate guidelines and decisions from time to time but there is no requirement for such votes which are voluntary only. These compilation of votes will be conducted only by the Senators themselves.

_42__ Should a MIP who had been elected to a free seat, then be unelected and their name is no longer an elected free member, then their name will be automatically reinstated as a Senator, BoD, committee member and/or the same particular seat title in any subsidiary Republic of Earth, if their donation remained on the International Parliament's records.

_43__ All Senators shall have access to all financial records for the International Parliament. More detailed information which isn't available on the Treasury Ministry's web page will be made available within 90 days to Senators when a request is made in writing to the Treasury Minister.

_44__ All payments are to be in US dollars only unless pre-approval is obtained from the Treasury Ministry.

_45__ The International Parliament will not ever hold any election in a single- winner district where a single-winner decision or name is elected.

_46__ Ballot Preparation

_47__ SPACE FOR THREE OR MORE WRITE-IN choices must be provided on each and every ballot, in all elections.

_48__ CATEGORIZATION AND PARTY NAMES The first and most important criterion in determining the nominee's party/category is the nominee's most recently requested or declared party/category in Parliament matters. The second most important criterion in determining the nominee's party/category is determined by the nominee's state's records, as written by the member while registering to vote. Appointed members may be categorized with any party/category that they wish, and the party/category of all members is considered to be the true one. Elected members may decide to change or switch their party/categorization at any time by proclamation. Members automatically qualify for the ballot in the next election cycle under the party/category of their choice.

_49__ First and last names are preferred, however all names nominated will be permitted on the ballot as well as the party/category of the nominee. If party/category is not known, the label "[Info. Not Avail.]" will be used. A nominee's name (and thus identity) may appear on the ballot only once, so fusion voting is not allowed. All world citizens who had signed up since "RESOLUTION NUMBER 1" was first approved on 10/27/2014 will be automatically added as MIPs retroactively within seven days after the approval of this bylaw item #39.

_50__ RESIGNATIONS. When any elected member, executive or minister, stands down, resigns, retires, or dies - the name is deleted. Then the next highest ranked name is automatically elected to the seat in their stead.

_51__ When a candidate who has chosen to stand down but then wishes to return to the position which they had departed, then they must first be re-affirmed by all the voters who had previously cast a vote for them.

_52__ TEN EXECUTIVES

_53__ MIPs: Once elected, all new Members of International Parliament (MIPs) may change their vote as a "vote of confidence" for the ten executives into perpetuity.

_54__ THE VOICE of the International Parliament will be the ten executives.

_55__ Each of the elected ten executives may pick a seat title once elected.

_56__ The ten executives elect up to sixty full Cabinet Ministers and sixty Deputy Cabinet Ministers using the "parliamentary go-ahead.

_57__ The International Parliament's ten executives agree to rank all names nominated by each of the other nine executives, thus guaranteeing that each of the ten executives elects 1/10th of the 60 cabinet ministers and this is known as the "parliamentary go-ahead".

_58__ THE TEN EXECUTIVES recruit as many people as possible who will work in the Cabinet to run the efforts, elects the planks on the platform and run the parliament's efforts free from political conflict or bias. The executives do not control who gets elected to the general assembly.

_59__ The ten executives of the International Parliament (IP) will serve as "Founding Executives" on the unity business entity named "All Party System Co., International Bureau", which is established in order to report all unifying news, business, financial matters, vote counting and results of vote counting of the IP to the public and to serve as a store for generating sales of products and services..

_60__ SIXTY CABINET MINISTERS

_61__ MINISTRY: A simple majority vote by at least six of the ten executives establishes the parliamentary go-ahead and will elect new Ministers, even without the parliamentary go-ahead.

_62__ MINISTRY DIRECTORS: Ministries may elect up to fifty Directors and any number of resolutions, agenda items, guidelines and administrators. The fifty Directors must be elected in one at-large district and their titles as "Directors" may be any title, for example each director may pick their own title too.

_63__ All International national Cabinet Ministers must be live, real people and no avatars or anonymous names may be used by the elected Cabinet Ministers. Only real names can be used and verification of the member's true name may be requested when such verifications are of interest from anyone of the ten executives.

_64__ HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES MINISTRY: The book "Know Thyself, Your Body's Wisdom for Living Consciously" will be added as a guide to the proposed Health and Human Services Ministry web page. For many ages, humanity has been confused about what decisions regenerate and degenerate our living systems. The Body itself has always held this wisdom of natural laws for our organ/gland functioning on 253 circuits of personal powers (but not always available until infrared could shine the light on it). The Body's own immense wisdom can show us how our next decision degenerates us or regenerates us (based on 40 years of scientific research using infrared technology that can be tracked, measured and decoded by the Language of the Body itself). This Self Evident and undeniable truth from our energetic design makes it an unparalleled guide to help humans make decisions (about voting, laws, or new customs, etc.) that can regenerate us from within as well as from without. (http://www.consciousnesssystems.com [1] to read the book). Also, VOLUNTARY LAW: The blog site http://vlda.org/, the Voluntary Law Development Association, owned by Jonathan Jaech will be added to the proposed

_65__ VOLUNTARY LAW MINISTRY: The Voluntary Law Ministry web page and can accompany 'Know Thyself, Your Body's Wisdom for Living Consciously' (that can both be used as the foundational principles for voluntary international law). These 2 sources of wisdom can promote peace, love and the clarity of energetic truth for successful ways to promote each living systems' regeneration.
The blog site http://vlda.org/, the Voluntary Law Development Association, owned by Jonathan Jaech will be added to the proposed VOLUNTARY LAW MINISTRY web page and will be used as the foundation for voluntary international law.

_66__ VOTE COUNTING MINISTRY: The Vote Counting Ministry will make an annual award for the "United Coalition Secure Paper Ballot Award".

_67__ TREASURY MINISTRY: The Treasury Minister of the International Parliament will be accountable only to the ten executives of the International Parliament through a vote of confidence. The Treasury Ministry is where specific records and agreements are posted for the public. The Treasury Ministry will maintain all records for Senators (donor MIPs) and other financial records such as revenue inflow, Senator mailing addresses, contact information and rankings, bank account savings and expenditures.

_68__ MEDIATION AND CONCILIATION MINISTRY: Appeals of a name's removal action may be taken to the Mediation and Conciliation Service Minister where rules for such appeals will be written, voted upon and approved.
Should any financial compensation be asked for or awarded after an appeal had been heard and a ruling had been finalized by the International national Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service Minister which is charged with recommending such financial compensation, then the case can be taken to the All Party System Co.'s International Bureau's Ethics & Grievances Committee of Four where a determination of the exact amount can be made and executed.

_69__ United Coalition

_70__ Declare that all of the elected and appointed members of the International Parliament, all countries' national parliaments, all subsidiary super-state, mini-state and county micro-state parliaments, to be members of a national and international "Unity Coalition" or "United Coalition" effective November 5th, 2014.

_71__ The International Parliament's subsidiary Republic "Unity Coalition" elections shall be in two phases; one before the country's primaries and one after the country's primaries. That way, a strong emphasis can be placed on official state-recognized ballot-qualified and write-in candidates both before the primaries and after the primaries, and the dates are customized for each of the country's official primaries.

_72__ UNITY PLATFORM

_73__ Conduct an international Direct Democracy (DD) election which will elect planks to a "Unity Platform".

_74__ The promotion of the Unity Coalition's "Unity Platform" can used used as an example of teamwork. The team can be promoted as being dynamic so that every item is up for a continual "vote of confidence" by all the members, all the time. That way, the recruitment of new members can take place in order to collect more votes for improving the planks on the Unity Platform.

_75__ PLANKS OF THE PLATFORM: The ten elected executives shall elect the UNITY PLATFORM with a series of "planks" from all the items they pick and rank from the DD election.

_76__ Guideline of Priority and Procedure

_77__ GENERAL PROVISIONS: Guideline of Priority and Procedure. The GUIDELINES contained on this web page shall be the official first GUIDELINES of procedure for the International Parliament and will be used for all transactions of business once ratified by a majority of the Members of Parliament (MPs). These GUIDELINES will take precedence over any other set of GUIDELINES.

_78__ GUIDELINE CHANGES: The Executive Committee reserves the right to make changes in these GUIDELINES by 6/10th vote and to present these changes to the delegates/members at any time. All changes should accommodate the desires or complaints of the MPs or staff so as to improve the conduct of business online and offline.

_79__ EXECUTIVES: The Executives of the International Parliament may select or approve persons to serve as Chairpersons, Legal Counsels, and Secretaries for each committee and any other position to help conduct the business.

_80__ CHAIR PERSON: Absence of Chairperson. If the Chair should find it necessary to be absent during any part of a committee meeting, he/she shall designate an individual (preferably the Legal Counsel) to assume his/her duties with the same authority.
General Authority of the Chairperson. In addition to exercising such authority conferred upon the Chair elsewhere in these GUIDELINES, the Chair shall declare the opening and closing of each session of the committee, direct its discussions, ensure observance of these GUIDELINES, accord the right to speak, put questions to a vote, and announce decisions of the committee.

_81__ Statements by the Executives. The ten elected Executives, or any person designated by the ten elected Executives, may at any time make oral or written statements to a committee.

_82__ MEMBERS: Number of Accredited Delegates. The number of delegates allowed on any delegation of the Parliament shall be limited to MIPs and Donor MIPs only.

_83__ DIPLOMATIC COURTESY: All delegates MUST accord all other delegates diplomatic courtesy at all times. Any delegate or visitor who, after being advised by the Chair, persists in an obvious attempt to divert the meeting from its intended purpose, or who otherwise attempts to disrupt the proceedings, shall be subject to disciplinary action and expulsion by the Chairperson.

_84__ AGENDA

_85__ AGENDA Selection of Agenda Items. Agenda items shall be selected by the Executive Committee. Once selected, these items are fixed for the duration of the conference and no other items will be discussed.

_86__ ORDER OF CONSIDERATION OF AGENDA ITEMS: Agenda items will be considered in the order in which they appear in the agenda eballot, unless that order is altered by a majority of the Committee.
The first set of agenda items approved by the majority (6 of ten minimum) will be known as "RESOLUTION NUMBER 2".
As new Executives are elected, the incoming executives will be asked to approve (or decline) all previous RESOLUTIONS and should the number of approving executives falls below a 6/10ths majority of Executives then the RESOLUTION is considered unelected, invalid and withdrawn. Only resolutions that retain a majority support of the Ten Executives can be considered approved.
New executives have 60 days following the election of their name to approve all RESOLUTIONS beginning with RESOLUTION NUMBER 2, 3, 4, etc. and RESOLUTION NUMBER 1 is not affected by incoming and outgoing executives because the majority coalition electing RESOLUTION NUMBER 1 consists of MIPs of whom Executives may be one.

_87__ PRIOR APPROVED RESOLUTIONS: Order of Consideration of Prior-Approved Resolutions. Prior-approved resolutions are resolutions that were received by the specified deadline and were deemed appropriate by the staff. They will receive priority over other resolutions. The order of appearance of resolutions before the Committee is determined by the date in which they were received, and is listed under the appropriate committee topic in that order in the resolution book by the Secretary. When the Chair opens debate on any agenda item, any delegate may move for consideration of an approved resolution on the agenda item that has been submitted to the chair with signatories of 1/8 of the delegations present. If the motion is seconded, the Chair will direct the committee to an immediate vote without debate on the motion, a majority being required for consideration. If no resolution receives a majority vote in favor of consideration, the Committee will automatically have before it for consideration the first resolution in the resolution book under that agenda item that has been received by the chair with the appropriate number of signatories.

_88__ CONSIDERATION OF RESOLUTIONS WITHOUT PRIOR APPROVAL: Resolutions that were not received by the specified deadline may still be considered, but not until 1/2 of the prior approved resolutions on the agenda item have been considered. For a resolution without prior approval to be considered, it must relate to the committee topic currently being debated, be submitted to the chair with signatories of 1/8 of the delegations present, and the delegate must supply enough copies of the resolution for each delegation present. Once these conditions have been met, any delegate may move for consideration of the resolution. If the motion is seconded, the chair will direct the committee to an immediate vote without debate on the motion, a majority being required for consideration.

_89__ SUBSTANTIVE PROPOSALS: Delegates will receive selected resolutions for consideration no later than at the time of the conference registration. The delegates must submit resolutions in the proper form by the deadline set by the Executive Committee.

_90__ Reporting Resolutions to the Parliament. The Chair of each committee shall report resolutions passed by that committee to the Parliament for its consideration. If a committee fails to approve a resolution on an agenda item, it shall submit a "Declaration of No Report" on that agenda item. That topic area will not be considered by the Parliament.

_91__ Amendments. All amendments to resolutions must be signed by one sponsoring delegation and at least one other seconding delegation; they must be submitted on an official amendment form for approval by the Legal Counsel and must be labeled with an identifying number by the Secretary. Secondary amendments and amendments by substitution are not acceptable. Obvious typographical efforts will be brought to the Committee's attention and collected by the Chair with no vote required. To move an amendment to the floor, recognition by the Chair and introduction of the amendment will suffice; no vote shall be required. Once an amendment has been brought to the floor, the Committee shall consider only the amendments and not the Resolutions until final action on the amendment has been taken (except to the extent that the amendment pertains to the Resolution).

_92__ Definition of Amendment and Voting on Amendments. An amendment is a motion that adds to, deletes from, or revises any part of a resolution. A series of alterations proposed by a single delegation to the same resolution shall be considered as a single amendment unless a motion is made to divide it.

_93__ Closure of Debate. A delegate may move to close debate at any time on any matter. Such a motion closes all substantive debate on the matters before the body at that time, except when such a motion would interrupt a speaker. Two delegates may speak against closure, and the motion will then be put to a vote. During debate on an amendment, a delegate may move for closure of debate on the resolution. If closure passes, then the amendment shall be voted on first followed by the resolution.

_94__ Move a Resolution to the Floor. Used to bring an approved resolution to the floor, this motion may not interrupt a speaker and is not debatable. No second is required.

_95__ DEBATE AND SPEECH GUIDELINES: Speeches. No delegate may address the committee without having previously obtained the permission of the Chair. The Chair shall call upon speakers in the order in which they signify their desire to speak. Delegates may not interrupt a speaker except on a point of order or point of personal privilege. Abusing these rights may be considered violations of diplomatic courtesy, and can result in disciplinary action taken by the chair. Motions should be made at the conclusion of the speaker's remarks; by making a motion, the speaker yields the floor.

_96__ Time Limit on Debate. The committee or the Chair may limit or extend the time allotted to each speaker and the number of times each delegate may speak on a proposal. There may be one speaker in favor and one opposed to the limitation/extension.

_97__ Right of Reply. During debate, the Chair may accord the right of reply to any delegate if a speech by another delegate contains unusual or extraordinary language clearly insulting to personal or national dignity. The decision granting a right of reply may not be appealed. Requests for a right of reply shall be in writing to the Chair. The Chair will limit the time for the reply. There shall be no reply to a reply.

_98__ POINTS - IN ORDER OF PRIORITY

Point of Order. If, during the discussion of any matter, a delegate believes that the committee is proceeding in a manner contrary to these GUIDELINES, he or she may rise to a point of order. The delegate so rising will be immediately recognized by the Chair and the point ruled upon. A delegate rising to a point of order may not speak on the substance of any matter under discussion.

Point of Personal Privilege. If a delegate wishes to raise a question or make a request relating to the organization of the meeting, personal comfort, or the conduct of fellow delegates or staff, he/she may rise to a point of personal privilege. When a delegate rises on privilege, the Chair shall take such action as is necessary.

Point of Parliamentary Inquiry. A point of parliamentary inquiry is directed to the Chair for information or guidance on procedure. This point may not interrupt the speaker. It is a question and does not require seconding or allow for debate. Replies by the Chair are not appealable.

Point of Information. If a delegate wishes to obtain a clarification of procedure or a statement of the matter before the committee, the delegate may address a point of information to the Chair. During debate, if a delegate wishes to ask a question of the speaker, a request to question the speaker may be made in the form of a point of information directed to the Chair after the speaker consents to be questioned, all questions and replies are made through the Chair. Delegates shall not interrupt a speaker on a point of information.

_99__ MOTIONS - ORDER OF PROCEDURAL MOTIONS

The motions as indicated in the Short Form of Points and Motions have precedence, in the order given, over all other proposals or motions before the committee.

Adjournment of Debate. During the discussion of any matter, a delegate may move the adjournment of debate on that matter. One delegate may speak in favor of the motion and one opposed. The motion shall then be put to an immediate vote. Adjournment of debate on a resolution or amendment has the effect of tabling that item and moves the committee on to the next order of business. See also 8.9 on Reconsideration.

Closure of Debate. A delegate may move to close debate at any time on any matter. Such a motion closes all substantive debate on the matters before the body at that time, except when such a motion would interrupt a speaker. Two delegates may speak against closure, and the motion will then be put to a vote. During debate on an amendment, a delegate may move for closure of debate on the resolution. if closure passes, then the amendment shall be voted on first followed by the resolution.

Move a Resolution to the Floor. Used to bring an approved resolution to the floor, this motion may not interrupt a speaker and is not debatable. No second is required.

Suspension of the Meeting. During the discussion of any matter, a delegate may move to suspend the meeting. Suspending a meeting recesses it until the time specified in the motion; the Chair may request the mover to modify the time. When the committee reconvenes it will continue with its business from the point at which suspension was moved.

Adjournment of the Meeting. The motion of adjournment means that all business of the committee has been completed, and that the committee win not reconvene until the next Annual Session. The Chair may refuse to recognize a motion to adjourn the meeting if the Committee still has business before it. A motion to adjourn is not debatable, and will be put to an immediate vote.

Decisions of Competence. Any motion calling for a decision on the competence of the Committee to discuss or adopt a proposal shall be put to a vote before the vote is taken on the proposal in question. If a Committee decides it is not competent to discuss or vote on an amendment or resolution, the effect is the same as adjourning debate on the matter. See also 8.9 on Reconsideration.

Withdrawal of Motions. A motion may be withdrawn by its proposer at any time before voting on it has begun, provided the motion has not been amended. A withdrawn motion may be reintroduced by any other delegation.

Reconsideration of Proposals. When a proposal has been adopted, or rejected through a vote of adjournment or "no competence", it may be reconsidered at the same session by an affirmative vote of two-thirds of the members present and voting. The motion to reconsider must be made by a delegation which originally voted on the prevailing side of the proposal; thus, reconsideration may be moved only on the proposals voted on by roll-call.

Division of the Question. A motion to divide the question, proposing that parts of an amendment or resolution be voted on separately, is in order at any time prior to commencement of voting on the amendment or resolution. Motions to divide shall apply only to operative clauses. Permission to speak on the motion shall be granted to one speaker in favor and one opposed, after which there shall be an immediate vote. The first motion for division to receive a majority vote shall become the final manner in which the proposal is presented. Those parts of the proposal which are approved shall be put to a vote as a whole. If all operative clauses of a proposal have been rejected, the proposal as a whole has been rejected.

Dilatory Motions. The Chair may rule as dilatory, and therefore out of order, any motion repeating or closely approximating a substantive measure on which the committee has already rendered an opinion. Such rulings can not be appealed.

Appealing a Decision of the Chair. Rulings of the chair can be appealed unless otherwise specified in these GUIDELINES. Appeals can be debated by one speaker in favor and one opposed.

_102__ VOTING METHODS AND RIGHTS: Each member delegation shall have one vote in each Committee in which it is represented. No delegate may cast a vote on behalf of another member.

_103__ Simple Majority. Unless otherwise specified in these GUIDELINES, decisions in the Committee shall be made by a majority vote of those members present and voting. The phrase "MSPs present and voting" refers to members casting ranked choice votes. Members which cast a final abstention are not voting. If a vote is equally divided between two sums of the same value, the motion fails.

_104__ Method of Voting. The Committee shall use ranked choice voting (RCV). The Chair, however, may grant a request for a roll-call vote; the decision to grant such a request is not appealable. All final votes on resolutions shall be taken by roll-call; the roll shall be called in English alphabetical order beginning with a person selected at random by the Secretary. Delegates shall reply "#1," or "abstain," or "abstain from the order of voting." A member may abstain from the order of voting once during the roll-call; a second abstention from the order of voting will be recorded as an abstention. Rights of explanation are permitted on roll-call votes and may be limited in time by the Chair. At the end of roll-call, but before rights of explanation and the subsequent announcement of the vote, the Secretary will ask for changes of vote. A delegation may not change from "0" to "#1", or "#1 with right of explanation" or from "0" to "0 with right of explanation." Those abstaining may be accorded rights of explanation. The result of the vote shall be inserted into the Committee record.

_105__ ONLINE VOTING: The International Parliament will conduct elections using online voting and all votes will be posted where they can be easily viewed by the public with the information as to who had cast the vote.

Upon approval of this bylaw item, all Senators' current donation levels, shall have their previous fee levels apply retroactively to new benefits under the same new fee levels with corresponding cost payments.

Voting Stppage

Whenever a financial crisis occurs where the costs for paying basic maintenance of the International Parliament are not being met, including the costs of domain hosting, web design and obligations to all of the Senators, then the Treasury and/or Vote Counting Ministry can place end to all introductions of free membership sign ups of Members of International Parliament (MIPs) and other free services provided by the Vote Counting Ministry and this ending will be known as a "voting stoppage".

This bylaw item can also affect the internal Cabinet voting by Ministers, but it will not include/affect "votes of confidence" by the MIPs, voting by Senators current in dues and the voting for election of Cabinet Ministers (parliamentary go-ahead) by the Ten Executives.

The voting stoppage will terminate either upon the recommendation/consensus to end it by both the Treasury and Vote Counting Ministries, or once the numbers of Senators reaches the same number of free MIPs within the general International Parliament's assembly membership.

Diplomatic Passports

Some ministers and deputies will be traveling a lot abroad. At the airports and borders a diplomatic passport would make sense. Even for the professional legitimacy to foreign politicians.

ID Cards

For activities within the country an ID card is sufficient. However, a professionally designed plastic card should be used here. Since the International Parliament nevertheless plays an important role in the world standard, you should already pay attention to a professional public image.

_38__ Once the top Senator seats are assigned based on ranking of donation level, then lower ranked donors "spill over" into the "Senator MPs" section of the subsidiary Republic of Earth, the country from which the donor originated.

_39__ The Senator's donation will be recorded and should the Senator ever wish to "stand down", then the donation amount will be not be refunded.

_40__ The numbers of seats for Senators shall never be more than the number of free elected members of International Parliament (MIPs).

_41__ The Senators may vote on Senate guidelines and decisions from time to time but there is no requirement for such votes which are voluntary only. These compilation of votes will be conducted only by the Senators themselves.

_42__ Should a MIP who had been elected to a free seat, then be unelected and their name is no longer an elected free member, then their name will be automatically reinstated as a Senator, BoD, committee member and/or the same particular seat title in any subsidiary Republic of Earth, if their donation remained on the International Parliament's records.

_43__ All Senators shall have access to all financial records for the International Parliament. More detailed information which isn't available on the Treasury Ministry's web page will be made available within 90 days to Senators when a request is made in writing to the Treasury Minister.

_44__ All payments are to be in US dollars only unless pre-approval is obtained from the Treasury Ministry.

_45__ The International Parliament will not ever hold any election in a single- winner district where a single-winner decision or name is elected.

_46__ Ballot Preparation

_47__ SPACE FOR THREE OR MORE WRITE-IN choices must be provided on each and every ballot, in all elections.

_48__ CATEGORIZATION AND PARTY NAMES The first and most important criterion in determining the nominee's party/category is the nominee's most recently requested or declared party/category in Parliament matters. The second most important criterion in determining the nominee's party/category is determined by the nominee's state's records, as written by the member while registering to vote. Appointed members may be categorized with any party/category that they wish, and the party/category of all members is considered to be the true one. Elected members may decide to change or switch their party/categorization at any time by proclamation. Members automatically qualify for the ballot in the next election cycle under the party/category of their choice.

_49__ First and last names are preferred, however all names nominated will be permitted on the ballot as well as the party/category of the nominee. If party/category is not known, the label "[Info. Not Avail.]" will be used. A nominee's name (and thus identity) may appear on the ballot only once, so fusion voting is not allowed. All new sign-ups, nominees and elected names within each party/category will qualify for the ballot and will be ranked below all other names on the prepared ballot. The order of these names will be determined first based on the rankings of "nomination ballots", and secondly by chronological order of the dates that the nominee's name was received. All world citizens who had signed up since "RESOLUTION NUMBER 1" was first approved on 10/27/2014 will be automatically added as MIPs retroactively within seven days after the approval of this bylaw item #39.

_50__ RESIGNATIONS. When any elected member, executive or minister, stands down, resigns, retires, or dies - the name is deleted. Then the next highest ranked name is automatically elected to the seat in their stead.

_51__ When a candidate who has chosen to stand down but then wishes to return to the position which they had departed, then they must first be re-affirmed by all the voters who had previously cast a vote for them.

_52__ TEN EXECUTIVES

_53__ MIPs: Once elected, all new Members of International Parliament (MIPs) may change their vote as a "vote of confidence" for the ten executives into perpetuity.

_54__ THE VOICE of the International Parliament will be the ten executives.

_55__ Each of the elected ten executives may pick a seat title once elected.

_56__ The ten executives elect up to sixty full Cabinet Ministers and sixty Deputy Cabinet Ministers using the "parliamentary go-ahead.

_57__ The International Parliament's ten executives agree to rank all names nominated by each of the other nine executives, thus guaranteeing that each of the ten executives elects 1/10th of the 60 cabinet ministers and this is known as the "parliamentary go-ahead".

_58__ THE TEN EXECUTIVES recruit as many people as possible who will work in the Cabinet to run the efforts, elects the planks on the platform and run the parliament's efforts free from political conflict or bias. The executives do not control who gets elected to the general assembly.

_59__ The ten executives of the International Parliament (IP) will serve as "Founding Executives" on the unity business entity named "All Party System Co., International Bureau", which is established in order to report all unifying news, business, financial matters, vote counting and results of vote counting of the IP to the public and to serve as a store for generating sales of products and services..

_60__ SIXTY CABINET MINISTERS

_61__ MINISTRY: A simple majority vote by at least six of the ten executives establishes the parliamentary go-ahead and will elect new Ministers, even without the parliamentary go-ahead.

_62__ MINISTRY DIRECTORS: Ministries may elect up to fifty Directors and any number of resolutions, agenda items, guidelines and administrators. The fifty Directors must be elected in one at-large district and their titles as "Directors" may be any title, for example each director may pick their own title too.

_63__ All International national Cabinet Ministers must be live, real people and no avatars or anonymous names may be used by the elected Cabinet Ministers. Only real names can be used and verification of the member's true name may be requested when such verifications are of interest from anyone of the ten executives.

_64__ HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES MINISTRY: The book "Know Thyself, Your Body's Wisdom for Living Consciously" will be added as a guide to the proposed Health and Human Services Ministry web page. For many ages, humanity has been confused about what decisions regenerate and degenerate our living systems. The Body itself has always held this wisdom of natural laws for our organ/gland functioning on 253 circuits of personal powers (but not always available until infrared could shine the light on it). The Body's own immense wisdom can show us how our next decision degenerates us or regenerates us (based on 40 years of scientific research using infrared technology that can be tracked, measured and decoded by the Language of the Body itself). This Self Evident and undeniable truth from our energetic design makes it an unparalleled guide to help humans make decisions (about voting, laws, or new customs, etc.) that can regenerate us from within as well as from without. (http://www.consciousnesssystems.com [1] to read the book). Also, VOLUNTARY LAW: The blog site http://vlda.org/, the Voluntary Law Development Association, owned by Jonathan Jaech will be added to the proposed

_65__ VOLUNTARY LAW MINISTRY: The Voluntary Law Ministry web page and can accompany 'Know Thyself, Your Body's Wisdom for Living Consciously' (that can both be used as the foundational principles for voluntary international law). These 2 sources of wisdom can promote peace, love and the clarity of energetic truth for successful ways to promote each living systems' regeneration.
The blog site http://vlda.org/, the Voluntary Law Development Association, owned by Jonathan Jaech will be added to the proposed VOLUNTARY LAW MINISTRY web page and will be used as the foundation for voluntary international law.

_66__ VOTE COUNTING MINISTRY: The Vote Counting Ministry will make an annual award for the "United Coalition Secure Paper Ballot Award".

_67__ TREASURY MINISTRY: The Treasury Minister of the International Parliament will be accountable only to the ten executives of the International Parliament through a vote of confidence. The Treasury Ministry is where specific records and agreements are posted for the public. The Treasury Ministry will maintain all records for Senators (donor MIPs) and other financial records such as revenue inflow, Senator mailing addresses, contact information and rankings, bank account savings and expenditures.

_68__ MEDIATION AND CONCILIATION MINISTRY: Appeals of a name's removal action may be taken to the Mediation and Conciliation Service Minister where rules for such appeals will be written, voted upon and approved.
Should any financial compensation be asked for or awarded after an appeal had been heard and a ruling had been finalized by the International national Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service Minister which is charged with recommending such financial compensation, then the case can be taken to the All Party System Co.'s International Bureau's Ethics & Grievances Committee of Four where a determination of the exact amount can be made and executed.

_69__ United Coalition

_70__ Declare that all of the elected and appointed members of the International Parliament, all countries' national parliaments, all subsidiary super-state, mini-state and county micro-state parliaments, to be members of a national and international "Unity Coalition" or "United Coalition" effective November 5th, 2014.

_71__ The International Parliament's subsidiary Republic "Unity Coalition" elections shall be in two phases; one before the country's primaries and one after the country's primaries. That way, a strong emphasis can be placed on official state-recognized ballot-qualified and write-in candidates both before the primaries and after the primaries, and the dates are customized for each of the country's official primaries.

_72__ UNITY PLATFORM

_73__ Conduct an international Direct Democracy (DD) election which will elect planks to a "Unity Platform".

_74__ The promotion of the Unity Coalition's "Unity Platform" can used used as an example of teamwork. The team can be promoted as being dynamic so that every item is up for a continual "vote of confidence" by all the members, all the time. That way, the recruitment of new members can take place in order to collect more votes for improving the planks on the Unity Platform.

_75__ PLANKS OF THE PLATFORM: The ten elected executives shall elect the UNITY PLATFORM with a series of "planks" from all the items they pick and rank from the DD election.

_76__ Guideline of Priority and Procedure

_77__ GENERAL PROVISIONS: Guideline of Priority and Procedure. The GUIDELINES contained on this web page shall be the official first GUIDELINES of procedure for the International Parliament and will be used for all transactions of business once ratified by a majority of the Members of Parliament (MPs). These GUIDELINES will take precedence over any other set of GUIDELINES.

_78__ GUIDELINE CHANGES: The Executive Committee reserves the right to make changes in these GUIDELINES by 6/10th vote and to present these changes to the delegates/members at any time. All changes should accommodate the desires or complaints of the MPs or staff so as to improve the conduct of business online and offline.

_79__ EXECUTIVES: The Executives of the International Parliament may select or approve persons to serve as Chairpersons, Legal Counsels, and Secretaries for each committee and any other position to help conduct the business.

_80__ CHAIR PERSON: Absence of Chairperson. If the Chair should find it necessary to be absent during any part of a committee meeting, he/she shall designate an individual (preferably the Legal Counsel) to assume his/her duties with the same authority.
General Authority of the Chairperson. In addition to exercising such authority conferred upon the Chair elsewhere in these GUIDELINES, the Chair shall declare the opening and closing of each session of the committee, direct its discussions, ensure observance of these GUIDELINES, accord the right to speak, put questions to a vote, and announce decisions of the committee.

_81__ Statements by the Executives. The ten elected Executives, or any person designated by the ten elected Executives, may at any time make oral or written statements to a committee.

_82__ MEMBERS: Number of Accredited Delegates. The number of delegates allowed on any delegation of the Parliament shall be limited to MIPs and Donor MIPs only.

_83__ DIPLOMATIC COURTESY: All delegates MUST accord all other delegates diplomatic courtesy at all times.

_84__ AGENDA

_85__ AGENDA Selection of Agenda Items. Agenda items shall be selected by the Executive Committee. Once selected, these items are fixed for the duration of the conference and no other items will be discussed.

_86__ ORDER OF CONSIDERATION OF AGENDA ITEMS: Agenda items will be considered in the order in which they appear in the agenda eballot, unless that order is altered by a majority of the Committee.
The first set of agenda items approved by the majority (6 of ten minimum) will be known as "RESOLUTION NUMBER 2".
As new Executives are elected, the incoming executives will be asked to approve (or decline) all previous RESOLUTIONS and should the number of approving executives falls below a 6/10ths majority of Executives then the RESOLUTION is considered unelected, invalid and withdrawn. Only resolutions that retain a majority support of the Ten Executives can be considered approved.
New executives have 60 days following the election of their name to approve all RESOLUTIONS beginning with RESOLUTION NUMBER 2, 3, 4, etc. and RESOLUTION NUMBER 1 is not affected by incoming and outgoing executives because the majority coalition electing RESOLUTION NUMBER 1 consists of MIPs of whom Executives may be one.

_87__ PRIOR APPROVED RESOLUTIONS: Order of Consideration of Prior-Approved Resolutions. Prior-approved resolutions are resolutions that were received by the specified deadline and were deemed appropriate by the staff. They will receive priority over other resolutions. The order of appearance of resolutions before the Committee is determined by the date in which they were received, and is listed under the appropriate committee topic in that order in the resolution book by the Secretary. When the Chair opens debate on any agenda item, any delegate may move for consideration of an approved resolution on the agenda item that has been submitted to the chair with signatories of 1/8 of the delegations present. If the motion is seconded, the Chair will direct the committee to an immediate vote without debate on the motion, a majority being required for consideration. If no resolution receives a majority vote in favor of consideration, the Committee will automatically have before it for consideration the first resolution in the resolution book under that agenda item that has been received by the chair with the appropriate number of signatories.

_88__ CONSIDERATION OF RESOLUTIONS WITHOUT PRIOR APPROVAL: Resolutions that were not received by the specified deadline may still be considered, but not until 1/2 of the prior approved resolutions on the agenda item have been considered. For a resolution without prior approval to be considered, it must relate to the committee topic currently being debated, be submitted to the chair with signatories of 1/8 of the delegations present, and the delegate must supply enough copies of the resolution for each delegation present. Once these conditions have been met, any delegate may move for consideration of the resolution. If the motion is seconded, the chair will direct the committee to an immediate vote without debate on the motion, a majority being required for consideration.

_89__ SUBSTANTIVE PROPOSALS: Delegates will receive selected resolutions for consideration no later than at the time of the conference registration. The delegates must submit resolutions in the proper form by the deadline set by the Executive Committee.

_90__ Reporting Resolutions to the Parliament. The Chair of each committee shall report resolutions passed by that committee to the Parliament for its consideration. If a committee fails to approve a resolution on an agenda item, it shall submit a "Declaration of No Report" on that agenda item. That topic area will not be considered by the Parliament.

_91__ Amendments. All amendments to resolutions must be signed by one sponsoring delegation and at least one other seconding delegation; they must be submitted on an official amendment form for approval by the Legal Counsel and must be labeled with an identifying number by the Secretary. Secondary amendments and amendments by substitution are not acceptable. Obvious typographical efforts will be brought to the Committee's attention and collected by the Chair with no vote required. To move an amendment to the floor, recognition by the Chair and introduction of the amendment will suffice; no vote shall be required. Once an amendment has been brought to the floor, the Committee shall consider only the amendments and not the Resolutions until final action on the amendment has been taken (except to the extent that the amendment pertains to the Resolution).

_92__ Definition of Amendment and Voting on Amendments. An amendment is a motion that adds to, deletes from, or revises any part of a resolution. A series of alterations proposed by a single delegation to the same resolution shall be considered as a single amendment unless a motion is made to divide it.

_93__ Closure of Debate. A delegate may move to close debate at any time on any matter. Such a motion closes all substantive debate on the matters before the body at that time, except when such a motion would interrupt a speaker. Two delegates may speak against closure, and the motion will then be put to a vote. During debate on an amendment, a delegate may move for closure of debate on the resolution. If closure passes, then the amendment shall be voted on first followed by the resolution.

_94__ Move a Resolution to the Floor. Used to bring an approved resolution to the floor, this motion may not interrupt a speaker and is not debatable. No second is required.

_95__ DEBATE AND SPEECH GUIDELINES: Speeches. No delegate may address the committee without having previously obtained the permission of the Chair. The Chair shall call upon speakers in the order in which they signify their desire to speak. Delegates may not interrupt a speaker except on a point of order or point of personal privilege. Abusing these rights may be considered violations of diplomatic courtesy, and can result in disciplinary action taken by the chair. Motions should be made at the conclusion of the speaker's remarks; by making a motion, the speaker yields the floor.

_96__ Time Limit on Debate. The committee or the Chair may limit or extend the time allotted to each speaker and the number of times each delegate may speak on a proposal. There may be one speaker in favor and one opposed to the limitation/extension.

_97__ Right of Reply. During debate, the Chair may accord the right of reply to any delegate if a speech by another delegate contains unusual or extraordinary language clearly insulting to personal or national dignity. The decision granting a right of reply may not be appealed. Requests for a right of reply shall be in writing to the Chair. The Chair will limit the time for the reply. There shall be no reply to a reply.

_98__ POINTS - IN ORDER OF PRIORITY

Point of Order. If, during the discussion of any matter, a delegate believes that the committee is proceeding in a manner contrary to these GUIDELINES, he or she may rise to a point of order. The delegate so rising will be immediately recognized by the Chair and the point ruled upon. A delegate rising to a point of order may not speak on the substance of any matter under discussion.

Point of Personal Privilege. If a delegate wishes to raise a question or make a request relating to the organization of the meeting, personal comfort, or the conduct of fellow delegates or staff, he/she may rise to a point of personal privilege. When a delegate rises on privilege, the Chair shall take such action as is necessary.

Point of Parliamentary Inquiry. A point of parliamentary inquiry is directed to the Chair for information or guidance on procedure. This point may not interrupt the speaker. It is a question and does not require seconding or allow for debate. Replies by the Chair are not appealable.

Point of Information. If a delegate wishes to obtain a clarification of procedure or a statement of the matter before the committee, the delegate may address a point of information to the Chair. During debate, if a delegate wishes to ask a question of the speaker, a request to question the speaker may be made in the form of a point of information directed to the Chair after the speaker consents to be questioned, all questions and replies are made through the Chair. Delegates shall not interrupt a speaker on a point of information.

_99__ MOTIONS - ORDER OF PROCEDURAL MOTIONS

The motions as indicated in the Short Form of Points and Motions have precedence, in the order given, over all other proposals or motions before the committee.

Adjournment of Debate. During the discussion of any matter, a delegate may move the adjournment of debate on that matter. One delegate may speak in favor of the motion and one opposed. The motion shall then be put to an immediate vote. Adjournment of debate on a resolution or amendment has the effect of tabling that item and moves the committee on to the next order of business. See also 8.9 on Reconsideration.

Closure of Debate. A delegate may move to close debate at any time on any matter. Such a motion closes all substantive debate on the matters before the body at that time, except when such a motion would interrupt a speaker. Two delegates may speak against closure, and the motion will then be put to a vote. During debate on an amendment, a delegate may move for closure of debate on the resolution. if closure passes, then the amendment shall be voted on first followed by the resolution.

Move a Resolution to the Floor. Used to bring an approved resolution to the floor, this motion may not interrupt a speaker and is not debatable. No second is required.

Suspension of the Meeting. During the discussion of any matter, a delegate may move to suspend the meeting. Suspending a meeting recesses it until the time specified in the motion; the Chair may request the mover to modify the time. When the committee reconvenes it will continue with its business from the point at which suspension was moved.

Adjournment of the Meeting. The motion of adjournment means that all business of the committee has been completed, and that the committee win not reconvene until the next Annual Session. The Chair may refuse to recognize a motion to adjourn the meeting if the Committee still has business before it. A motion to adjourn is not debatable, and will be put to an immediate vote.

Decisions of Competence. Any motion calling for a decision on the competence of the Committee to discuss or adopt a proposal shall be put to a vote before the vote is taken on the proposal in question. If a Committee decides it is not competent to discuss or vote on an amendment or resolution, the effect is the same as adjourning debate on the matter. See also 8.9 on Reconsideration.

Withdrawal of Motions. A motion may be withdrawn by its proposer at any time before voting on it has begun, provided the motion has not been amended. A withdrawn motion may be reintroduced by any other delegation.

Reconsideration of Proposals. When a proposal has been adopted, or rejected through a vote of adjournment or "no competence", it may be reconsidered at the same session by an affirmative vote of two-thirds of the members present and voting. The motion to reconsider must be made by a delegation which originally voted on the prevailing side of the proposal; thus, reconsideration may be moved only on the proposals voted on by roll-call.

Division of the Question. A motion to divide the question, proposing that parts of an amendment or resolution be voted on separately, is in order at any time prior to commencement of voting on the amendment or resolution. Motions to divide shall apply only to operative clauses. Permission to speak on the motion shall be granted to one speaker in favor and one opposed, after which there shall be an immediate vote. The first motion for division to receive a majority vote shall become the final manner in which the proposal is presented. Those parts of the proposal which are approved shall be put to a vote as a whole. If all operative clauses of a proposal have been rejected, the proposal as a whole has been rejected.

Dilatory Motions. The Chair may rule as dilatory, and therefore out of order, any motion repeating or closely approximating a substantive measure on which the committee has already rendered an opinion. Such rulings can not be appealed.

Appealing a Decision of the Chair. Rulings of the chair can be appealed unless otherwise specified in these GUIDELINES. Appeals can be debated by one speaker in favor and one opposed.

_102__ VOTING METHODS AND RIGHTS: Each member delegation shall have one vote in each Committee in which it is represented. No delegate may cast a vote on behalf of another member.

_103__ Simple Majority. Unless otherwise specified in these GUIDELINES, decisions in the Committee shall be made by a majority vote of those members present and voting. The phrase "MSPs present and voting" refers to members casting ranked choice votes. Members which cast a final abstention are not voting. If a vote is equally divided between two sums of the same value, the motion fails.

_104__ Method of Voting. The Committee shall use ranked choice voting (RCV). The Chair, however, may grant a request for a roll-call vote; the decision to grant such a request is not appealable. All final votes on resolutions shall be taken by roll-call; the roll shall be called in English alphabetical order beginning with a person selected at random by the Secretary. Delegates shall reply "#1," or "abstain," or "abstain from the order of voting." A member may abstain from the order of voting once during the roll-call; a second abstention from the order of voting will be recorded as an abstention. Rights of explanation are permitted on roll-call votes and may be limited in time by the Chair. At the end of roll-call, but before rights of explanation and the subsequent announcement of the vote, the Secretary will ask for changes of vote. A delegation may not change from "0" to "#1", or "#1 with right of explanation" or from "0" to "0 with right of explanation." Those abstaining may be accorded rights of explanation. The result of the vote shall be inserted into the Committee record.

_105__ ONLINE VOTING: The International Parliament will conduct elections using online voting and all votes will be posted where they can be easily viewed by the public with the information as to who had cast the vote.

_106__ Conduct during Voting. Immediately prior to a vote, the Chair shall describe to the Committee the proposal to be voted on, and shall explain the consequence of a 1 or 0 vote. Voting shall begin upon the chair's declaration and shall end when the results of the vote are announced. Once voting has begun, no delegate shall interrupt the voting except on a point of order or information concerning the actual conduct of the vote, or on a point of personal privilege.

_109__ OPERATIVE CLAUSES are set out to achieve the committee's main policy goals on the topic.

__47_ The ten executives elect up to sixty full Cabinet Ministers and sixty Deputy Cabinet Ministers using the "parliamentary go-ahead.

Only real names can be used and verification of the member's true name may be requested when such verifications are of interest from anyone of the ten executives.

_55__ HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES MINISTRY: The book "Know Thyself, Your Body's Wisdom for Living Consciously" will be added as a guide to the proposed Health and Human Services Ministry web page. For many ages, humanity has been confused about what decisions regenerate and degenerate our living systems. The Body itself has always held this wisdom of natural laws for our organ/gland functioning on 253 circuits of personal powers (but not always available until infrared could shine the light on it). The Body's own immense wisdom can show us how our next decision degenerates us or regenerates us (based on 40 years of scientific research using infrared technology that can be tracked, measured and decoded by the Language of the Body itself). This Self Evident and undeniable truth from our energetic design makes it an unparalleled guide to help humans make decisions (about voting, laws, or new customs, etc.) that can regenerate us from within as well as from without. (http://www.consciousnesssystems.com [1] to read the book). Also, VOLUNTARY LAW: The blog site http://vlda.org/, the Voluntary Law Development Association, owned by Jonathan Jaech will be added to the proposed

_56__ VOLUNTARY LAW MINISTRY: The Voluntary Law Ministry web page and can accompany 'Know Thyself, Your Body's Wisdom for Living Consciously' (that can both be used as the foundational principles for voluntary international law). These 2 sources of wisdom can promote peace, love and the clarity of energetic truth for successful ways to promote each living systems' regeneration.
The blog site http://vlda.org/, the Voluntary Law Development Association, owned by Jonathan Jaech will be added to the proposed VOLUNTARY LAW MINISTRY web page and will be used as the foundation for voluntary international law.

_57__ VOTE COUNTING MINISTRY: The Vote Counting Ministry will make an annual award for the "United Coalition Secure Paper Ballot Award".

_58__ TREASURY MINISTRY: The Treasury Minister of the International Parliament will be accountable only to the ten executives of the International Parliament through a vote of confidence. The Treasury Ministry is where specific records and agreements are posted for the public. The Treasury Ministry will maintain all records for Donor MIPs and other financial records such as revenue inflow, Senator rankings, savings and expenditures.

_59__ MEDIATION AND CONCILIATION MINISTRY: Appeals of a name's removal action may be taken to the Mediation and Conciliation Service Minister where rules for such appeals will be written, voted upon and approved.
Should any financial compensation be asked for or awarded after an appeal had been heard and a ruling had been finalized by the International national Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service Minister which is charged with recommending such financial compensation, then the case can be taken to the All Party System Co.'s International Bureau's Ethics & Grievances Committee of Four where a determination of the exact amount can be made and executed.

_60__ Donors

_61__ Once the donation/contribution is received, the donors' funds will be deposited into a bank account which is controlled by the ten executives of the International Parliament.

_62__ Senators: New Senate seats will be made available in a donor section of the International Parliament's members of the International Parliament. All donors, who contribute money to the political entity International Parliament at the minimum donation price, will promptly and automatically become a "Senator".

_63__ Once the top Senator seats are assigned based on ranking of donation level, then lower ranked donors "spill over" into the "Senator MPs" section of the country from which the donor originated, the subsidiary Republic of Earth.

_64__ The Senator's donation will be recorded and should the Senator ever wish to "stand down", then the donation amount will be not be refunded.

_65__ The numbers of seats for Senators shall never be more than the number of free elected members of International Parliament (MIPs).

_73__ UNITY PLATFORM

That way, the recruitment of new members can take place in order to collect more votes for improving the planks on the Unity Platform.

_76__ PLANKS OF THE PLATFORM: The ten elected executives shall elect the UNITY PLATFORM with a series of "planks" from all the items they pick and rank from the DD election.

_77__ Guideline of Priority and Procedure

_78__ GENERAL PROVISIONS: Guideline of Priority and Procedure. The GUIDELINES contained on this web page shall be the official first GUIDELINES of procedure for the International Parliament and will be used for all transactions of business once ratified by a majority of the Members of Parliament (MPs). These GUIDELINES will take precedence over any other set of GUIDELINES.

_79__ GUIDELINE CHANGES: The Executive Committee reserves the right to make changes in these GUIDELINES by 6/10th vote and to present these changes to the delegates/members at any time. All changes should accommodate the desires or complaints of the MPs or staff so as to improve the conduct of business online and offline.

_80__ EXECUTIVES: The Executives of the International Parliament may select or approve persons to serve as Chairpersons, Legal Counsels, and Secretaries for each committee and any other position to help conduct the business.

_81__ CHAIR PERSON: Absence of Chairperson. If the Chair should find it necessary to be absent during any part of a committee meeting, he/she shall designate an individual (preferably the Legal Counsel) to assume his/her duties with the same authority.
General Authority of the Chairperson. In addition to exercising such authority conferred upon the Chair elsewhere in these GUIDELINES, the Chair shall declare the opening and closing of each session of the committee, direct its discussions, ensure observance of these GUIDELINES, accord the right to speak, put questions to a vote, and announce decisions of the committee.

_82__ Statements by the Executives. The ten elected Executives, or any person designated by the ten elected Executives, may at any time make oral or written statements to a committee.

_83__ MEMBERS: Number of Accredited Delegates. The number of delegates allowed on any delegation of the Parliament shall be limited to MIPs and Donor MIPs only.

_85__ AGENDA

_86__ AGENDA Selection of Agenda Items. Agenda items shall be selected by the Executive Committee. Once selected, these items are fixed for the duration of the conference and no other items will be discussed.

_87__ ORDER OF CONSIDERATION OF AGENDA ITEMS: Agenda items will be considered in the order in which they appear in the agenda eballot, unless that order is altered by a majority of the Committee.
The first set of agenda items approved by the majority (6 of ten minimum) will be known as "RESOLUTION NUMBER 2".
As new Executives are elected, the incoming executives will be asked to approve (or decline) all previous RESOLUTIONS and should the number of approving executives falls below a 6/10ths majority of Executives then the RESOLUTION is considered unelected, invalid and withdrawn. Only resolutions that retain a majority support of the Ten Executives can be considered approved.
New executives have 60 days following the election of their name to approve all RESOLUTIONS beginning with RESOLUTION NUMBER 2, 3, 4, etc. and RESOLUTION NUMBER 1 is not affected by incoming and outgoing executives because the majority coalition electing RESOLUTION NUMBER 1 consists of MIPs of whom Executives may be one.

_88__ PRIOR APPROVED RESOLUTIONS: Order of Consideration of Prior-Approved Resolutions. Prior-approved resolutions are resolutions that were received by the specified deadline and were deemed appropriate by the staff. They will receive priority over other resolutions. The order of appearance of resolutions before the Committee is determined by the date in which they were received, and is listed under the appropriate committee topic in that order in the resolution book by the Secretary. When the Chair opens debate on any agenda item, any delegate may move for consideration of an approved resolution on the agenda item that has been submitted to the chair with signatories of 1/8 of the delegations present. If the motion is seconded, the Chair will direct the committee to an immediate vote without debate on the motion, a majority being required for consideration. If no resolution receives a majority vote in favor of consideration, the Committee will automatically have before it for consideration the first resolution in the resolution book under that agenda item that has been received by the chair with the appropriate number of signatories.

_89__ CONSIDERATION OF RESOLUTIONS WITHOUT PRIOR APPROVAL: Resolutions that were not received by the specified deadline may still be considered, but not until 1/2 of the prior approved resolutions on the agenda item have been considered. For a resolution without prior approval to be considered, it must relate to the committee topic currently being debated, be submitted to the chair with signatories of 1/8 of the delegations present, and the delegate must supply enough copies of the resolution for each delegation present. Once these conditions have been met, any delegate may move for consideration of the resolution. If the motion is seconded, the chair will direct the committee to an immediate vote without debate on the motion, a majority being required for consideration.

_90__ SUBSTANTIVE PROPOSALS: Delegates will receive selected resolutions for consideration no later than at the time of the conference registration. The delegates must submit resolutions in the proper form by the deadline set by the Executive Committee.

_91__ Reporting Resolutions to the Parliament. The Chair of each committee shall report resolutions passed by that committee to the Parliament for its consideration. If a committee fails to approve a resolution on an agenda item, it shall submit a "Declaration of No Report" on that agenda item. That topic area will not be considered by the Parliament.

_92__ Amendments. All amendments to resolutions must be signed by one sponsoring delegation and at least one other seconding delegation; they must be submitted on an official amendment form for approval by the Legal Counsel and must be labeled with an identifying number by the Secretary. Secondary amendments and amendments by substitution are not acceptable. Obvious typographical efforts will be brought to the Committee's attention and collected by the Chair with no vote required. To move an amendment to the floor, recognition by the Chair and introduction of the amendment will suffice; no vote shall be required. Once an amendment has been brought to the floor, the Committee shall consider only the amendments and not the Resolutions until final action on the amendment has been taken (except to the extent that the amendment pertains to the Resolution).

_93__ Definition of Amendment and Voting on Amendments. An amendment is a motion that adds to, deletes from, or revises any part of a resolution. A series of alterations proposed by a single delegation to the same resolution shall be considered as a single amendment unless a motion is made to divide it.

__94_ Closure of Debate. A delegate may move to close debate at any time on any matter. Such a motion closes all substantive debate on the matters before the body at that time, except when such a motion would interrupt a speaker. Two delegates may speak against closure, and the motion will then be put to a vote. During debate on an amendment, a delegate may move for closure of debate on the resolution. If closure passes, then the amendment shall be voted on first followed by the resolution.

_95__ Move a Resolution to the Floor. Used to bring an approved resolution to the floor, this motion may not interrupt a speaker and is not debatable. No second is required.

_96__ DEBATE AND SPEECH GUIDELINES: Speeches. No delegate may address the committee without having previously obtained the permission of the Chair. The Chair shall call upon speakers in the order in which they signify their desire to speak. Delegates may not interrupt a speaker except on a point of order or point of personal privilege. Abusing these rights may be considered violations of diplomatic courtesy, and can result in disciplinary action taken by the chair. Motions should be made at the conclusion of the speaker's remarks; by making a motion, the speaker yields the floor.

_97__ Time Limit on Debate. The committee or the Chair may limit or extend the time allotted to each speaker and the number of times each delegate may speak on a proposal. There may be one speaker in favor and one opposed to the limitation/extension.

_98__ Right of Reply. During debate, the Chair may accord the right of reply to any delegate if a speech by another delegate contains unusual or extraordinary language clearly insulting to personal or national dignity. The decision granting a right of reply may not be appealed. Requests for a right of reply shall be in writing to the Chair. The Chair will limit the time for the reply. There shall be no reply to a reply.

_99__ POINTS - IN ORDER OF PRIORITY

Point of Order. If, during the discussion of any matter, a delegate believes that the committee is proceeding in a manner contrary to these GUIDELINES, he or she may rise to a point of order. The delegate so rising will be immediately recognized by the Chair and the point ruled upon. A delegate rising to a point of order may not speak on the substance of any matter under discussion.

Point of Personal Privilege. If a delegate wishes to raise a question or make a request relating to the organization of the meeting, personal comfort, or the conduct of fellow delegates or staff, he/she may rise to a point of personal privilege. When a delegate rises on privilege, the Chair shall take such action as is necessary.

Point of Parliamentary Inquiry. A point of parliamentary inquiry is directed to the Chair for information or guidance on procedure. This point may not interrupt the speaker. It is a question and does not require seconding or allow for debate. Replies by the Chair are not appealable.

Point of Information. If a delegate wishes to obtain a clarification of procedure or a statement of the matter before the committee, the delegate may address a point of information to the Chair. During debate, if a delegate wishes to ask a question of the speaker, a request to question the speaker may be made in the form of a point of information directed to the Chair after the speaker consents to be questioned, all questions and replies are made through the Chair. Delegates shall not interrupt a speaker on a point of information.

_100__ MOTIONS - ORDER OF PROCEDURAL MOTIONS

The motions as indicated in the Short Form of Points and Motions have precedence, in the order given, over all other proposals or motions before the committee.

Adjournment of Debate. During the discussion of any matter, a delegate may move the adjournment of debate on that matter. One delegate may speak in favor of the motion and one opposed. The motion shall then be put to an immediate vote. Adjournment of debate on a resolution or amendment has the effect of tabling that item and moves the committee on to the next order of business. See also 8.9 on Reconsideration.

Closure of Debate. A delegate may move to close debate at any time on any matter. Such a motion closes all substantive debate on the matters before the body at that time, except when such a motion would interrupt a speaker. Two delegates may speak against closure, and the motion will then be put to a vote. During debate on an amendment, a delegate may move for closure of debate on the resolution. if closure passes, then the amendment shall be voted on first followed by the resolution.

Move a Resolution to the Floor. Used to bring an approved resolution to the floor, this motion may not interrupt a speaker and is not debatable. No second is required.

Suspension of the Meeting. During the discussion of any matter, a delegate may move to suspend the meeting. Suspending a meeting recesses it until the time specified in the motion; the Chair may request the mover to modify the time. When the committee reconvenes it will continue with its business from the point at which suspension was moved.

Adjournment of the Meeting. The motion of adjournment means that all business of the committee has been completed, and that the committee win not reconvene until the next Annual Session. The Chair may refuse to recognize a motion to adjourn the meeting if the Committee still has business before it. A motion to adjourn is not debatable, and will be put to an immediate vote.

Decisions of Competence. Any motion calling for a decision on the competence of the Committee to discuss or adopt a proposal shall be put to a vote before the vote is taken on the proposal in question. If a Committee decides it is not competent to discuss or vote on an amendment or resolution, the effect is the same as adjourning debate on the matter. See also 8.9 on Reconsideration.

Withdrawal of Motions. A motion may be withdrawn by its proposer at any time before voting on it has begun, provided the motion has not been amended. A withdrawn motion may be reintroduced by any other delegation.

Reconsideration of Proposals. When a proposal has been adopted, or rejected through a vote of adjournment or "no competence", it may be reconsidered at the same session by an affirmative vote of two-thirds of the members present and voting. The motion to reconsider must be made by a delegation which originally voted on the prevailing side of the proposal; thus, reconsideration may be moved only on the proposals voted on by roll-call.

Division of the Question. A motion to divide the question, proposing that parts of an amendment or resolution be voted on separately, is in order at any time prior to commencement of voting on the amendment or resolution. Motions to divide shall apply only to operative clauses. Permission to speak on the motion shall be granted to one speaker in favor and one opposed, after which there shall be an immediate vote. The first motion for division to receive a majority vote shall become the final manner in which the proposal is presented. Those parts of the proposal which are approved shall be put to a vote as a whole. If all operative clauses of a proposal have been rejected, the proposal as a whole has been rejected.

Dilatory Motions. The Chair may rule as dilatory, and therefore out of order, any motion repeating or closely approximating a substantive measure on which the committee has already rendered an opinion. Such rulings can not be appealed.

Appealing a Decision of the Chair. Rulings of the chair can be appealed unless otherwise specified in these GUIDELINES. Appeals can be debated by one speaker in favor and one opposed.

_105__ Method of Voting. The Committee shall use ranked choice voting (RCV). The Chair, however, may grant a request for a roll-call vote; the decision to grant such a request is not appealable. All final votes on resolutions shall be taken by roll-call; the roll shall be called in English alphabetical order beginning with a person selected at random by the Secretary. Delegates shall reply "#1," or "abstain," or "abstain from the order of voting." A member may abstain from the order of voting once during the roll-call; a second abstention from the order of voting will be recorded as an abstention. Rights of explanation are permitted on roll-call votes and may be limited in time by the Chair. At the end of roll-call, but before rights of explanation and the subsequent announcement of the vote, the Secretary will ask for changes of vote. A delegation may not change from "0" to "#1", or "#1 with right of explanation" or from "0" to "0 with right of explanation." Those abstaining may be accorded rights of explanation. The result of the vote shall be inserted into the Committee record.

_106__ ONLINE VOTING: The International Parliament will conduct elections using online voting and all votes will be posted where they can be easily viewed by the public with the information as to who had cast the vote.

_35__ The International Parliament will not ever hold any election in a single- winner district where a single-winner decision or name is elected.

_36__ Ballot Preparation

_37__ SPACE FOR THREE OR MORE WRITE-IN choices must be provided on each and every ballot, in all elections.

_38__ CATEGORIZATION AND PARTY NAMES The first and most important criterion in determining the nominee's party/category is the nominee's most recently requested or declared party/category in Parliament matters. The second most important criterion in determining the nominee's party/category is determined by the nominee's state's records, as written by the member while registering to vote. Appointed members may be categorized with any party/category that they wish, and the party/category of all members is considered to be the true one. Elected members may decide to change or switch their party/categorization at any time by proclamation. Members automatically qualify for the ballot in the next election cycle under the party/category of their choice.

_39__ First and last names are preferred, however all names nominated will be permitted on the ballot as well as the party/category of the nominee. If party/category is not known, the label "[Info. Not Avail.]" will be used. A nominee's name (and thus identity) may appear on the ballot only once, so fusion voting is not allowed. All new sign-ups, nominees and elected names within each party/category will qualify for the ballot and will be ranked below all other names on the prepared ballot. The order of these names will be determined first based on the rankings of "nomination ballots", and secondly by chronological order of the dates that the nominee's name was received. All world citizens who had signed up since "RESOLUTION NUMBER 1" was first approved on 10/27/2014 will be automatically added as MIPs retroactively within seven days after the approval of this bylaw item #39.

_40__ Senators are not elected during regular election cycles of the parliament's elections but they do receive all of the same voting rights plus special donor privileges which apply to the donation level of which the donor has achieved.

_41__ RESIGNATIONS. When any elected member, executive or minister, stands down, resigns, retires, or dies - the name is deleted. Then the next highest ranked name is automatically elected to the seat in their stead.

_42__ When a candidate who has chosen to stand down but then wishes to return to the position which they had departed, then they must first be re-affirmed by all the voters who had previously cast a vote for them.

_43__ TEN EXECUTIVES

_44__ MIPs: Once elected, all new Members of International Parliament (MIPs) may change their vote as a "vote of confidence" for the ten executives into perpetuity.

_45__ THE VOICE of the International Parliament will be the ten executives.

_46__ Each of the elected ten executives may pick a seat title once elected.

__47_ The ten executives elect up to sixty full Cabinet Ministers and sixty Deputy Cabinet Ministers using the "parliamentary go-ahead.

_48__ The International Parliament's ten executives agree to rank all names nominated by each of the other nine executives, thus guaranteeing that each of the ten executives elects 1/10th of the 60 cabinet ministers and this is known as the "parliamentary go-ahead".

_49__ THE TEN EXECUTIVES recruit as many people as possible who will work in the Cabinet to run the efforts, elects the planks on the platform and run the parliament's efforts free from political conflict or bias. The executives do not control who gets elected to the general assembly.

_50__ The ten executives of the International Parliament (IP) will serve as "Founding Executives" on the unity business entity named "All Party System Co., International Bureau", which is established in order to report all unifying news, business, financial matters, vote counting and results of vote counting of the IP to the public and to serve as a store for generating sales of products and services..

_51__ SIXTY CABINET MINISTERS

_52__ MINISTRY: A simple majority vote by at least six of the ten executives establishes the parliamentary go-ahead and will elect new Ministers, even without the parliamentary go-ahead.

_53__ MINISTRY DIRECTORS: Ministries may elect up to fifty Directors and any number of resolutions, agenda items, guidelines and administrators. The fifty Directors must be elected in one at-large district and their titles as "Directors" may be any title, for example each director may pick their own title too.

_54__ All International national Cabinet Ministers must be live, real people and no avatars or anonymous names may be used by the elected Cabinet Ministers. Only real names can be used and verification of the member's true name may be requested when such verifications are of interest from anyone of the ten executives.

_55__ HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES MINISTRY: The book "Know Thyself, Your Body's Wisdom for Living Consciously" will be added as a guide to the proposed Health and Human Services Ministry web page. For many ages, humanity has been confused about what decisions regenerate and degenerate our living systems. The Body itself has always held this wisdom of natural laws for our organ/gland functioning on 253 circuits of personal powers (but not always available until infrared could shine the light on it). The Body's own immense wisdom can show us how our next decision degenerates us or regenerates us (based on 40 years of scientific research using infrared technology that can be tracked, measured and decoded by the Language of the Body itself). This Self Evident and undeniable truth from our energetic design makes it an unparalleled guide to help humans make decisions (about voting, laws, or new customs, etc.) that can regenerate us from within as well as from without. (http://www.consciousnesssystems.com [1] to read the book). Also, VOLUNTARY LAW: The blog site http://vlda.org/, the Voluntary Law Development Association, owned by Jonathan Jaech will be added to the proposed

_56__ VOLUNTARY LAW MINISTRY: The Voluntary Law Ministry web page and can accompany 'Know Thyself, Your Body's Wisdom for Living Consciously' (that can both be used as the foundational principles for voluntary international law). These 2 sources of wisdom can promote peace, love and the clarity of energetic truth for successful ways to promote each living systems' regeneration.
The blog site http://vlda.org/, the Voluntary Law Development Association, owned by Jonathan Jaech will be added to the proposed VOLUNTARY LAW MINISTRY web page and will be used as the foundation for voluntary international law.

_57__ VOTE COUNTING MINISTRY: The Vote Counting Ministry will make an annual award for the "United Coalition Secure Paper Ballot Award".

_58__ TREASURY MINISTRY: The Treasury Minister of the International Parliament will be accountable only to the ten executives of the International Parliament through a vote of confidence. The Treasury Ministry is where specific records and agreements are posted for the public. The Treasury Ministry will maintain all records for Donor MIPs and other financial records such as revenue inflow, Senator rankings, savings and expenditures.

_59__ MEDIATION AND CONCILIATION MINISTRY: Appeals of a name's removal action may be taken to the Mediation and Conciliation Service Minister where rules for such appeals will be written, voted upon and approved.
Should any financial compensation be asked for or awarded after an appeal had been heard and a ruling had been finalized by the International national Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service Minister which is charged with recommending such financial compensation, then the case can be taken to the All Party System Co.'s International Bureau's Ethics & Grievances Committee of Four where a determination of the exact amount can be made and executed.

_60__ Donors

_61__ Once the donation/contribution is received, the donors' funds will be deposited into a bank account which is controlled by the ten executives of the International Parliament.

_62__ Senators: New Senate seats will be made available in a donor section of the International Parliament's members of the International Parliament. All donors, who contribute money to the political entity International Parliament at the minimum donation price, will promptly and automatically become a "Senator".

_63__ Once the top Senator seats are assigned based on ranking of donation level, then lower ranked donors "spill over" into the "Senator MPs" section of the country from which the donor originated, the subsidiary Republic of Earth.

_64__ The Senator's donation will be recorded and should the Senator ever wish to "stand down", then the donation amount will be not be refunded.

_65__ The numbers of seats for Senators shall never be more than the number of free elected members of International Parliament (MIPs).

_66__ The Senators may vote on Senate guidelines and decisions from time to time but there is no requirement for such votes which are voluntary only. These compilation of votes will be conducted only by the Senators themselves.

_67__ Should a MIP who had been elected to a free seat, then be unelected and their name is no longer an elected free member, then their name will be automatically reinstated as a Senator, BoD, committee member and/or the same particular seat title in any subsidiary Republic of Earth, if their donation remained on the International Parliament's records.

_68__ All Senators shall have access to all financial records for the International Parliament. More detailed information which isn't available on the Treasury Ministry's web page will be made available within 90 days to Senators when a request is made in writing to the Treasury Minister.

_69__ All payments are to be in US dollars only unless pre-approval is obtained from the Treasury Ministry.

_70__ United Coalition

_71__ Declare that all of the elected and appointed members of the International Parliament, all countries' national parliaments, all subsidiary super-state, mini-state and county micro-state parliaments, to be members of a national and international "Unity Coalition" or "United Coalition" effective November 5th, 2014.

_72__ The International Parliament's subsidiary Republic "Unity Coalition" elections shall be in two phases; one before the country's primaries and one after the country's primaries. That way, a strong emphasis can be placed on official state-recognized ballot-qualified and write-in candidates both before the primaries and after the primaries, and the dates are customized for each of the country's official primaries.

_73__ UNITY PLATFORM

_74__ Conduct an international Direct Democracy (DD) election which will elect planks to a "Unity Platform".

_75__ The promotion of the Unity Coalition's "Unity Platform" can used used as an example of teamwork. The team can be promoted as being dynamic so that every item is up for a continual "vote of confidence" by all the members, all the time. That way, the recruitment of new members can take place in order to collect more votes for improving the planks on the Unity Platform.

_76__ PLANKS OF THE PLATFORM: The ten elected executives shall elect the UNITY PLATFORM with a series of "planks" from all the items they pick and rank from the DD election.

_77__ Guideline of Priority and Procedure

_78__ GENERAL PROVISIONS: Guideline of Priority and Procedure. The GUIDELINES contained on this web page shall be the official first GUIDELINES of procedure for the International Parliament and will be used for all transactions of business once ratified by a majority of the Members of Parliament (MPs). These GUIDELINES will take precedence over any other set of GUIDELINES.

_79__ GUIDELINE CHANGES: The Executive Committee reserves the right to make changes in these GUIDELINES by 6/10th vote and to present these changes to the delegates/members at any time. All changes should accommodate the desires or complaints of the MPs or staff so as to improve the conduct of business online and offline.

_80__ EXECUTIVES: The Executives of the International Parliament may select or approve persons to serve as Chairpersons, Legal Counsels, and Secretaries for each committee and any other position to help conduct the business.

_81__ CHAIR PERSON: Absence of Chairperson. If the Chair should find it necessary to be absent during any part of a committee meeting, he/she shall designate an individual (preferably the Legal Counsel) to assume his/her duties with the same authority.
General Authority of the Chairperson. In addition to exercising such authority conferred upon the Chair elsewhere in these GUIDELINES, the Chair shall declare the opening and closing of each session of the committee, direct its discussions, ensure observance of these GUIDELINES, accord the right to speak, put questions to a vote, and announce decisions of the committee.

_82__ Statements by the Executives. The ten elected Executives, or any person designated by the ten elected Executives, may at any time make oral or written statements to a committee.

_83__ MEMBERS: Number of Accredited Delegates. The number of delegates allowed on any delegation of the Parliament shall be limited to MIPs and Donor MIPs only.

_84__ DIPLOMATIC COURTESY: All delegates MUST accord all other delegates diplomatic courtesy at all times. Any delegate or visitor who, after being advised by the Chair, persists in an obvious attempt to divert the meeting from its intended purpose, or who otherwise attempts to disrupt the proceedings, shall be subject to disciplinary action and expulsion by the Chairperson.

_85__ AGENDA

_86__ AGENDA Selection of Agenda Items. Agenda items shall be selected by the Executive Committee. Once selected, these items are fixed for the duration of the conference and no other items will be discussed.

_87__ ORDER OF CONSIDERATION OF AGENDA ITEMS: Agenda items will be considered in the order in which they appear in the agenda eballot, unless that order is altered by a majority of the Committee.
The first set of agenda items approved by the majority (6 of ten minimum) will be known as "RESOLUTION NUMBER 2".
As new Executives are elected, the incoming executives will be asked to approve (or decline) all previous RESOLUTIONS and should the number of approving executives falls below a 6/10ths majority of Executives then the RESOLUTION is considered unelected, invalid and withdrawn. Only resolutions that retain a majority support of the Ten Executives can be considered approved.
New executives have 60 days following the election of their name to approve all RESOLUTIONS beginning with RESOLUTION NUMBER 2, 3, 4, etc. and RESOLUTION NUMBER 1 is not affected by incoming and outgoing executives because the majority coalition electing RESOLUTION NUMBER 1 consists of MIPs of whom Executives may be one.

_88__ PRIOR APPROVED RESOLUTIONS: Order of Consideration of Prior-Approved Resolutions. Prior-approved resolutions are resolutions that were received by the specified deadline and were deemed appropriate by the staff. They will receive priority over other resolutions. The order of appearance of resolutions before the Committee is determined by the date in which they were received, and is listed under the appropriate committee topic in that order in the resolution book by the Secretary. When the Chair opens debate on any agenda item, any delegate may move for consideration of an approved resolution on the agenda item that has been submitted to the chair with signatories of 1/8 of the delegations present. If the motion is seconded, the Chair will direct the committee to an immediate vote without debate on the motion, a majority being required for consideration. If no resolution receives a majority vote in favor of consideration, the Committee will automatically have before it for consideration the first resolution in the resolution book under that agenda item that has been received by the chair with the appropriate number of signatories.

_89__ CONSIDERATION OF RESOLUTIONS WITHOUT PRIOR APPROVAL: Resolutions that were not received by the specified deadline may still be considered, but not until 1/2 of the prior approved resolutions on the agenda item have been considered. For a resolution without prior approval to be considered, it must relate to the committee topic currently being debated, be submitted to the chair with signatories of 1/8 of the delegations present, and the delegate must supply enough copies of the resolution for each delegation present. Once these conditions have been met, any delegate may move for consideration of the resolution. If the motion is seconded, the chair will direct the committee to an immediate vote without debate on the motion, a majority being required for consideration.

_90__ SUBSTANTIVE PROPOSALS: Delegates will receive selected resolutions for consideration no later than at the time of the conference registration. The delegates must submit resolutions in the proper form by the deadline set by the Executive Committee.

_91__ Reporting Resolutions to the Parliament. The Chair of each committee shall report resolutions passed by that committee to the Parliament for its consideration. If a committee fails to approve a resolution on an agenda item, it shall submit a "Declaration of No Report" on that agenda item. That topic area will not be considered by the Parliament.

_92__ Amendments. All amendments to resolutions must be signed by one sponsoring delegation and at least one other seconding delegation; they must be submitted on an official amendment form for approval by the Legal Counsel and must be labeled with an identifying number by the Secretary. Secondary amendments and amendments by substitution are not acceptable. Obvious typographical efforts will be brought to the Committee's attention and collected by the Chair with no vote required. To move an amendment to the floor, recognition by the Chair and introduction of the amendment will suffice; no vote shall be required. Once an amendment has been brought to the floor, the Committee shall consider only the amendments and not the Resolutions until final action on the amendment has been taken (except to the extent that the amendment pertains to the Resolution).

_93__ Definition of Amendment and Voting on Amendments. An amendment is a motion that adds to, deletes from, or revises any part of a resolution. A series of alterations proposed by a single delegation to the same resolution shall be considered as a single amendment unless a motion is made to divide it.

__94_ Closure of Debate. A delegate may move to close debate at any time on any matter. Such a motion closes all substantive debate on the matters before the body at that time, except when such a motion would interrupt a speaker. Two delegates may speak against closure, and the motion will then be put to a vote. During debate on an amendment, a delegate may move for closure of debate on the resolution. If closure passes, then the amendment shall be voted on first followed by the resolution.

_95__ Move a Resolution to the Floor. Used to bring an approved resolution to the floor, this motion may not interrupt a speaker and is not debatable. No second is required.

_96__ DEBATE AND SPEECH GUIDELINES: Speeches. No delegate may address the committee without having previously obtained the permission of the Chair. The Chair shall call upon speakers in the order in which they signify their desire to speak. Delegates may not interrupt a speaker except on a point of order or point of personal privilege. Abusing these rights may be considered violations of diplomatic courtesy, and can result in disciplinary action taken by the chair. Motions should be made at the conclusion of the speaker's remarks; by making a motion, the speaker yields the floor.

_97__ Time Limit on Debate. The committee or the Chair may limit or extend the time allotted to each speaker and the number of times each delegate may speak on a proposal. There may be one speaker in favor and one opposed to the limitation/extension.

_98__ Right of Reply. During debate, the Chair may accord the right of reply to any delegate if a speech by another delegate contains unusual or extraordinary language clearly insulting to personal or national dignity. The decision granting a right of reply may not be appealed. Requests for a right of reply shall be in writing to the Chair. The Chair will limit the time for the reply. There shall be no reply to a reply.

_99__ POINTS - IN ORDER OF PRIORITY

Point of Order. If, during the discussion of any matter, a delegate believes that the committee is proceeding in a manner contrary to these GUIDELINES, he or she may rise to a point of order. The delegate so rising will be immediately recognized by the Chair and the point ruled upon. A delegate rising to a point of order may not speak on the substance of any matter under discussion.

Point of Personal Privilege. If a delegate wishes to raise a question or make a request relating to the organization of the meeting, personal comfort, or the conduct of fellow delegates or staff, he/she may rise to a point of personal privilege. When a delegate rises on privilege, the Chair shall take such action as is necessary.

Point of Parliamentary Inquiry. A point of parliamentary inquiry is directed to the Chair for information or guidance on procedure. This point may not interrupt the speaker. It is a question and does not require seconding or allow for debate. Replies by the Chair are not appealable.

Point of Information. If a delegate wishes to obtain a clarification of procedure or a statement of the matter before the committee, the delegate may address a point of information to the Chair. During debate, if a delegate wishes to ask a question of the speaker, a request to question the speaker may be made in the form of a point of information directed to the Chair after the speaker consents to be questioned, all questions and replies are made through the Chair. Delegates shall not interrupt a speaker on a point of information.

_100__ MOTIONS - ORDER OF PROCEDURAL MOTIONS

The motions as indicated in the Short Form of Points and Motions have precedence, in the order given, over all other proposals or motions before the committee.

Adjournment of Debate. During the discussion of any matter, a delegate may move the adjournment of debate on that matter. One delegate may speak in favor of the motion and one opposed. The motion shall then be put to an immediate vote. Adjournment of debate on a resolution or amendment has the effect of tabling that item and moves the committee on to the next order of business. See also 8.9 on Reconsideration.

Closure of Debate. A delegate may move to close debate at any time on any matter. Such a motion closes all substantive debate on the matters before the body at that time, except when such a motion would interrupt a speaker. Two delegates may speak against closure, and the motion will then be put to a vote. During debate on an amendment, a delegate may move for closure of debate on the resolution. if closure passes, then the amendment shall be voted on first followed by the resolution.

Move a Resolution to the Floor. Used to bring an approved resolution to the floor, this motion may not interrupt a speaker and is not debatable. No second is required.

Suspension of the Meeting. During the discussion of any matter, a delegate may move to suspend the meeting. Suspending a meeting recesses it until the time specified in the motion; the Chair may request the mover to modify the time. When the committee reconvenes it will continue with its business from the point at which suspension was moved.

Adjournment of the Meeting. The motion of adjournment means that all business of the committee has been completed, and that the committee win not reconvene until the next Annual Session. The Chair may refuse to recognize a motion to adjourn the meeting if the Committee still has business before it. A motion to adjourn is not debatable, and will be put to an immediate vote.

Decisions of Competence. Any motion calling for a decision on the competence of the Committee to discuss or adopt a proposal shall be put to a vote before the vote is taken on the proposal in question. If a Committee decides it is not competent to discuss or vote on an amendment or resolution, the effect is the same as adjourning debate on the matter. See also 8.9 on Reconsideration.

Withdrawal of Motions. A motion may be withdrawn by its proposer at any time before voting on it has begun, provided the motion has not been amended. A withdrawn motion may be reintroduced by any other delegation.

Reconsideration of Proposals. When a proposal has been adopted, or rejected through a vote of adjournment or "no competence", it may be reconsidered at the same session by an affirmative vote of two-thirds of the members present and voting. The motion to reconsider must be made by a delegation which originally voted on the prevailing side of the proposal; thus, reconsideration may be moved only on the proposals voted on by roll-call.

Division of the Question. A motion to divide the question, proposing that parts of an amendment or resolution be voted on separately, is in order at any time prior to commencement of voting on the amendment or resolution. Motions to divide shall apply only to operative clauses. Permission to speak on the motion shall be granted to one speaker in favor and one opposed, after which there shall be an immediate vote. The first motion for division to receive a majority vote shall become the final manner in which the proposal is presented. Those parts of the proposal which are approved shall be put to a vote as a whole. If all operative clauses of a proposal have been rejected, the proposal as a whole has been rejected.

Dilatory Motions. The Chair may rule as dilatory, and therefore out of order, any motion repeating or closely approximating a substantive measure on which the committee has already rendered an opinion. Such rulings can not be appealed.

Appealing a Decision of the Chair. Rulings of the chair can be appealed unless otherwise specified in these GUIDELINES. Appeals can be debated by one speaker in favor and one opposed.

_103__ VOTING METHODS AND RIGHTS: Each member delegation shall have one vote in each Committee in which it is represented. No delegate may cast a vote on behalf of another member.

_104__ Simple Majority. Unless otherwise specified in these GUIDELINES, decisions in the Committee shall be made by a majority vote of those members present and voting. The phrase "MSPs present and voting" refers to members casting ranked choice votes. Members which cast a final abstention are not voting. If a vote is equally divided between two sums of the same value, the motion fails.

_105__ Method of Voting. The Committee shall use ranked choice voting (RCV). The Chair, however, may grant a request for a roll-call vote; the decision to grant such a request is not appealable. All final votes on resolutions shall be taken by roll-call; the roll shall be called in English alphabetical order beginning with a person selected at random by the Secretary. Delegates shall reply "#1," or "abstain," or "abstain from the order of voting." A member may abstain from the order of voting once during the roll-call; a second abstention from the order of voting will be recorded as an abstention. Rights of explanation are permitted on roll-call votes and may be limited in time by the Chair. At the end of roll-call, but before rights of explanation and the subsequent announcement of the vote, the Secretary will ask for changes of vote. A delegation may not change from "0" to "#1", or "#1 with right of explanation" or from "0" to "0 with right of explanation." Those abstaining may be accorded rights of explanation. The result of the vote shall be inserted into the Committee record.

_106__ ONLINE VOTING: The International Parliament will conduct elections using online voting and all votes will be posted where they can be easily viewed by the public with the information as to who had cast the vote.

_107__ Conduct during Voting. Immediately prior to a vote, the Chair shall describe to the Committee the proposal to be voted on, and shall explain the consequence of a 1 or 0 vote. Voting shall begin upon the chair's declaration and shall end when the results of the vote are announced. Once voting has begun, no delegate shall interrupt the voting except on a point of order or information concerning the actual conduct of the vote, or on a point of personal privilege.

_110__ OPERATIVE CLAUSES are set out to achieve the committee's main policy goals on the topic.

_7__ The votes are counted two times by two different and diverse teams of counters, recorded/taped/broadcast by two different devices with the public able to observe and video/livestream the counting.

_8__ The results from the polling locations will be called to the Board of Elections, emailed to the BoE and hand delivered. All three must match. The Board of Elections will hand tally the results from all the polling locations, again, two times by two different and diverse teams of counters with this being taped, recorded and broadcast and the public able to observe, tape and live-stream the entire proceedings. And, the same goes for what happens at the state level.

_9__ The polling location should serve a maximum of 1,000 voters and Election Day should be a national holiday with employers, if necessary, having to arrange for special accommodations for employees that must work, as with hospitals. A minimum of two hours personal time to vote will be given to all citizens and voters.

_10__ The voters' names and marking on the ballot will remain secret but the vote counting will be publicly observable.

_13__ VOTER AUTHENTICATION:

methods for contacting the voter, as part of their registration.

When two or more methods of contact aren't provided by the voter, then further explanation will be considered by the Vote Counting Ministry verifiers.
Violation of this or any other rule will automatically disqualify a ballot.

Additional Measures
Once 500 Members of International Parliament (MIPs) are elected, the following rules automatically take effect:
13.a Registered voters must meet stricter verification standards.
13.b Elected MIPs must also meet the same stricter verification standards.
13.c Registered voters and elected members must provide a signature drawn with black ink which will be used
for ID and verification and validation at conventions and this signature must also be provided before any vote takes effect.
The issuance of the ID is not required for the registered voter to participate, but the signature must be on file.
13.d Signatures will be stored in the International Parliament's files in alphabetical order or last names.
13.e When funds are available, the signature will be copied to the background of an ID card. Photo
of the voter may also be added for an additional fee charged to ID holder. Each voters ID number will
be included on the ID card.
13.f ID cards may be provided to Senators, beginning with Level Once Senators, followed by Level Two, Three, Four and Five, until all Senators hold ID cards.
13.g ID cards will not have the mailing address of the registered voter and/or elected MIPs and Senators.
13.h All new sign-ups, nominees and elected names within each party/category will qualify for the ballot and will be ranked below all other names on the prepared ballot. The order of these names will be determined first based on the rankings of "nomination ballots", and secondly by chronological order of the dates that the nominee's name was received.
13.i New sign ups are considered elected as Member of International Parliament (MIP) by the process of signing up,
but once the numbers of elected MIPs reached 500 this item "13.i" terminates is is no longer applicable, and only
marked eballots (and marked paper ballots) will elect new MIPs. At that moment in time, the registration of new
sign ups allows the new signed member to vote but the signature may be required as a pre-qualifying condition for voting.
13.j The date that item "13.i" becomes effective, voting for the free MIPs will pause indefinitely until
the money is raise through Senator sign ups or other methods and the signature card is mailed to all MIPs.
13.j Once voting for MIPs begins when all the above items have taken effect, each registered voter may vote for
a maximum of ten names. When more than ten names are correctly ranked in consecutive order on the ballot
or eballot then the first ten names are considered recipients of the ranked votes, but not names enumerated
number eleven (11) and after number eleven (11), which are affected. Once an automated voting system
is inplace, the limit of eleven rankings will not be required and will not be in effect.
13.k Senators with ID signatures on file may vote on MIP blank eballot upon receipt of signature.
13.l Once the signature and ID number is registered then the voter is encouraged to use the eballot,
but the paper ballot is also acceptable.
13.m Rules 13.a though 13.l do not apply to voting for Cabinet Directors and Ministry internal rules,
nor do they apply to Ten Executives votes for full and Deputy Cabinet Ministers.

_14__ General Counting, Balloting and Eballoting Guidelines for International Parliament Elections

_15__ RANKED VOTING ONLY: All voting and vote counting shall be in the form of ranked paper ballots only (and eballots when practical and verifiable). Consecutive numbers beginning with the #s 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. etc. must always be used when marking on (e)ballot of all alternative decisions or names. Deviation from this guideline will disqualify the ballot, and the ballot will be marked spoiled.

_16__ Pure proportional representation (PR) will be used.

_17__ THE SAINTE-LAGUE PARLIAMENT SYSTEM, Hagenbach-Bischoff method, under ranked choice voting, for seat allocation in all multi-seat districts:

Divide the election's total number of votes by the number of seats. This is the 1st quota.

Divide this quota into each candidate's votes, and round off to the nearest whole number. That's that candidate's seat allocation.

If, due to rounding, this awards a number of seats different from the desired number of seats, then adjust the quota slightly up or down, till, when paragraph two is carried out, it will award all seats.

_18__ Any resident of earth, nominee and/or proxy may observe the counting of the ballots. Volunteer counters will conduct the vote counting.

_19__ Choices marked on "eballots" are posted for public view and are not bound by confidentiality under the behavior of officers of the Parliament.

_20__ EBALLOTS are ballots cast via email and must be emailed to vvc "at" allpartysystem "dot" org, a private email address used by the secretary and observers for receiving such eballots. No reply email will be sent to voters who cast eballots other than a verification message, unless the voter indicates that he/she wishes to be self appointed to the www.international-parliament.org site or when a question regarding verification or validation is raised by a volunteer vote counter.

_21__ Volunteer vote counters may be added to the exploder email address vvc "at" allpartysystem "dot" org as a subscriber by sending the message "subscribe" to vvc "at" allpartysystem "dot" org.

_22__ Telephone voting is permissible, acceptable and verification and validations will be provided when requested.

_23__ Elections of rules shall be perpetual and the simple majority vote, by elected MIPs who vote on rules, passes rules.

_24__ BALLOTS AND EBALLOTS: All world residents are eligible to vote in International Parliament Elections 365 days year.

_25__ There will be five hundred members of International Parliament (MIPs) who are elected members self appointed/self nominated for free under ranked choice voting as one 500-member at-large district to be known as "MIPs" and five hundred members who are donors, ranked in order of donation level and are to be known as one 500-member at-large district to be known as "Senator" MIPs.

_26__ THE PARTY LEADER within the International Parliament is a label for the highest ranked name categorized under each party. Party leaders are responsible for the distribution of all ballots and rules to the members of their party/category and lists.

_27__ Such ballots may be retype set or altered to specifically identify their select nominees' correct name and party affiliation. All ballots released to public used by the International Parliament's elected secretaries shall count as a legitimate ballot and shall be presumed to represent the correct and most current candidate name information.

_27__ BALLOT: ORDER OF NOMINEES of all names in the parliament elections and subsidiary parliament elections will be determined by the results caused by the voters' ranking of the nominees on the previous election's ballots. This is known as the correct consecutive order of nominee. Appointments and self-appointments will be listed chronologically.

_29__ NOMINEE ACCEPTANCE AND WRITE-INS: Only names who formally ACCEPT the nomination of their name, self write-in names and those currently already elected will qualify for the ballot/eballot for the International Parliament. There will be a cap at 500 names for the ballot/eballot for the free elections of MIPs.

_30__ A verifiable name and contact information must be provided in order to qualify as a nominee for the (e)ballot.

_31__ The final order of the parties/categories on the final prepared ballot will be determined by the nominees' party name/category and the parties/categories and will be listed on the ballot in alphabetical order.

_32__ TIES: Ties will be broken by holding a runoff election only when called by one of the two secretaries. In all other cases, all the names/items in a tie will be included in the results and will be in a new "tied" category, even if the size of the assembly or agenda list must be expanded beyond normal size set forth by these rules.

_33__ ONLY ONE SINGLE PARLIAMENTARY BALLOT, IS PERMITTED TO BE MARKED BY EACH WORLD RESIDENT: All living world citizens may vote one time and only one time. In cases where a second ballot (or more) is cast, only the latter of the ballots will be counted, the former will be marked spoiled, deleted and regarded disqualified.

All donors, who contribute money to the political entity International Parliament at the minimum donation price, will promptly and automatically become a "Senator".

Upon approval of this bylaw item, all Senators' current donation levels, shall have their previous fee levels apply retroactively to new benefits under the same new fee levels with corresponding cost payments.

"Voting Stoppage"

Whenever a financial crisis occurs where the costs for paying basic maintenance of the International Parliament are not being met, including the costs of domain hosting, web design and obligations to all of the Senators, then the Treasury and/or Vote Counting Ministry can place end to all introductions of free membership sign ups of Members of International Parliament (MIPs) and other free services provided by the Vote Counting Ministry and this ending will be known as a "voting stoppage".

This bylaw item can also affect the internal Cabinet voting by Ministers, but it will not include/affect "votes of confidence" by the MIPs, voting by Senators current in dues and the voting for election of Cabinet Ministers (parliamentary go-ahead) by the Ten Executives.

The voting stoppage will terminate either upon the recommendation/consensus to end it by both the Treasury and Vote Counting Ministries, or once the numbers of Senators reaches the same number of free MIPs within the general International Parliament's assembly membership.

Diplomatic Passports

Some ministers and deputies will be traveling a lot abroad. At the airports and borders a diplomatic passport would make sense. Even for the professional legitimacy to foreign politicians.

ID Cards

For activities within the country an ID card is sufficient. However, a professionally designed plastic card should be used here. Since the International Parliament nevertheless plays an important role in the world standard, you should already pay attention to a professional public image.

_38__ Once the top Senator seats are assigned based on ranking of donation level, then lower ranked donors "spill over" into the "Senator MPs" section of the subsidiary Republic of Earth, the country from which the donor originated.

_39__ The Senator's donation will be recorded and should the Senator ever wish to "stand down", then the donation amount will be not be refunded.

_40__ The numbers of seats for Senators shall never be more than the number of free elected members of International Parliament (MIPs).

_41__ The Senators may vote on Senate guidelines and decisions from time to time but there is no requirement for such votes which are voluntary only. These compilation of votes will be conducted only by the Senators themselves.

_42__ Should a MIP who had been elected to a free seat, then be unelected and their name is no longer an elected free member, then their name will be automatically reinstated as a Senator, BoD, committee member and/or the same particular seat title in any subsidiary Republic of Earth, if their donation remained on the International Parliament's records.

_43__ All Senators shall have access to all financial records for the International Parliament. More detailed information which isn't available on the Treasury Ministry's web page will be made available within 90 days to Senators when a request is made in writing to the Treasury Minister.

_44__ All payments are to be in US dollars only unless pre-approval is obtained from the Treasury Ministry.

_45__ The International Parliament will not ever hold any election in a single- winner district where a single-winner decision or name is elected.

_46__ Ballot Preparation

_47__ SPACE FOR THREE OR MORE WRITE-IN choices must be provided on each and every ballot, in all elections.

_48__ CATEGORIZATION AND PARTY NAMES The first and most important criterion in determining the nominee's party/category is the nominee's most recently requested or declared party/category in Parliament matters. The second most important criterion in determining the nominee's party/category is determined by the nominee's state's records, as written by the member while registering to vote. Appointed members may be categorized with any party/category that they wish, and the party/category of all members is considered to be the true one. Elected members may decide to change or switch their party/categorization at any time by proclamation. Members automatically qualify for the ballot in the next election cycle under the party/category of their choice.

_49__ First and last names are preferred, however all names nominated will be permitted on the ballot as well as the party/category of the nominee. If party/category is not known, the label "[Info. Not Avail.]" will be used. A nominee's name (and thus identity) may appear on the ballot only once, so fusion voting is not allowed. All world citizens who had signed up since "RESOLUTION NUMBER 1" was first approved on 10/27/2014 will be automatically added as MIPs retroactively within seven days after the approval of this bylaw item #39.

_50__ RESIGNATIONS. When any elected member, executive or minister, stands down, resigns, retires, or dies - the name is deleted. Then the next highest ranked name is automatically elected to the seat in their stead.

_51__ When a candidate who has chosen to stand down but then wishes to return to the position which they had departed, then they must first be re-affirmed by all the voters who had previously cast a vote for them.

_52__ TEN EXECUTIVES

_53__ MIPs: Once elected, all new Members of International Parliament (MIPs) may change their vote as a "vote of confidence" for the ten executives into perpetuity.

_54__ THE VOICE of the International Parliament will be the ten executives.

_55__ Each of the elected ten executives may pick a seat title once elected.

_56__ The ten executives elect up to sixty full Cabinet Ministers and sixty Deputy Cabinet Ministers using the "parliamentary go-ahead.

_57__ The International Parliament's ten executives agree to rank all names nominated by each of the other nine executives, thus guaranteeing that each of the ten executives elects 1/10th of the 60 cabinet ministers and this is known as the "parliamentary go-ahead".

_58__ THE TEN EXECUTIVES recruit as many people as possible who will work in the Cabinet to run the efforts, elects the planks on the platform and run the parliament's efforts free from political conflict or bias. The executives do not control who gets elected to the general assembly.

_59__ The ten executives of the International Parliament (IP) will serve as "Founding Executives" on the unity business entity named "All Party System Co., International Bureau", which is established in order to report all unifying news, business, financial matters, vote counting and results of vote counting of the IP to the public and to serve as a store for generating sales of products and services..

_60__ SIXTY CABINET MINISTERS

_61__ MINISTRY: A simple majority vote by at least six of the ten executives establishes the parliamentary go-ahead and will elect new Ministers, even without the parliamentary go-ahead.

_62__ MINISTRY DIRECTORS: Ministries may elect up to fifty Directors and any number of resolutions, agenda items, guidelines and administrators. The fifty Directors must be elected in one at-large district and their titles as "Directors" may be any title, for example each director may pick their own title too.

_63__ All International national Cabinet Ministers must be live, real people and no avatars or anonymous names may be used by the elected Cabinet Ministers. Only real names can be used and verification of the member's true name may be requested when such verifications are of interest from anyone of the ten executives.

_64__ HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES MINISTRY: The book "Know Thyself, Your Body's Wisdom for Living Consciously" will be added as a guide to the proposed Health and Human Services Ministry web page. For many ages, humanity has been confused about what decisions regenerate and degenerate our living systems. The Body itself has always held this wisdom of natural laws for our organ/gland functioning on 253 circuits of personal powers (but not always available until infrared could shine the light on it). The Body's own immense wisdom can show us how our next decision degenerates us or regenerates us (based on 40 years of scientific research using infrared technology that can be tracked, measured and decoded by the Language of the Body itself). This Self Evident and undeniable truth from our energetic design makes it an unparalleled guide to help humans make decisions (about voting, laws, or new customs, etc.) that can regenerate us from within as well as from without. (http://www.consciousnesssystems.com [1] to read the book). Also, VOLUNTARY LAW: The blog site http://vlda.org/, the Voluntary Law Development Association, owned by Jonathan Jaech will be added to the proposed

_65__ VOLUNTARY LAW MINISTRY: The Voluntary Law Ministry web page and can accompany 'Know Thyself, Your Body's Wisdom for Living Consciously' (that can both be used as the foundational principles for voluntary international law). These 2 sources of wisdom can promote peace, love and the clarity of energetic truth for successful ways to promote each living systems' regeneration.
The blog site http://vlda.org/, the Voluntary Law Development Association, owned by Jonathan Jaech will be added to the proposed VOLUNTARY LAW MINISTRY web page and will be used as the foundation for voluntary international law.

_66__ VOTE COUNTING MINISTRY: The Vote Counting Ministry will make an annual award for the "United Coalition Secure Paper Ballot Award".

_67__ TREASURY MINISTRY: The Treasury Minister of the International Parliament will be accountable only to the ten executives of the International Parliament through a vote of confidence. The Treasury Ministry is where specific records and agreements are posted for the public. The Treasury Ministry will maintain all records for Senators (donor MIPs) and other financial records such as revenue inflow, Senator mailing addresses, contact information and rankings, bank account savings and expenditures.

_68__ MEDIATION AND CONCILIATION MINISTRY: Appeals of a name's removal action may be taken to the Mediation and Conciliation Service Minister where rules for such appeals will be written, voted upon and approved.
Should any financial compensation be asked for or awarded after an appeal had been heard and a ruling had been finalized by the International national Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service Minister which is charged with recommending such financial compensation, then the case can be taken to the All Party System Co.'s International Bureau's Ethics & Grievances Committee of Four where a determination of the exact amount can be made and executed.

_69__ United Coalition

_70__ Declare that all of the elected and appointed members of the International Parliament, all countries' national parliaments, all subsidiary super-state, mini-state and county micro-state parliaments, to be members of a national and international "Unity Coalition" or "United Coalition" effective November 5th, 2014.

_71__ The International Parliament's subsidiary Republic "Unity Coalition" elections shall be in two phases; one before the country's primaries and one after the country's primaries. That way, a strong emphasis can be placed on official state-recognized ballot-qualified and write-in candidates both before the primaries and after the primaries, and the dates are customized for each of the country's official primaries.

_72__ UNITY PLATFORM

_73__ Conduct an international Direct Democracy (DD) election which will elect planks to a "Unity Platform".

_74__ The promotion of the Unity Coalition's "Unity Platform" can used used as an example of teamwork. The team can be promoted as being dynamic so that every item is up for a continual "vote of confidence" by all the members, all the time. That way, the recruitment of new members can take place in order to collect more votes for improving the planks on the Unity Platform.

_75__ PLANKS OF THE PLATFORM: The ten elected executives shall elect the UNITY PLATFORM with a series of "planks" from all the items they pick and rank from the DD election.

_76__ Guideline of Priority and Procedure

_77__ GENERAL PROVISIONS: Guideline of Priority and Procedure. The GUIDELINES contained on this web page shall be the official first GUIDELINES of procedure for the International Parliament and will be used for all transactions of business once ratified by a majority of the Members of Parliament (MPs). These GUIDELINES will take precedence over any other set of GUIDELINES.

_78__ GUIDELINE CHANGES: The Executive Committee reserves the right to make changes in these GUIDELINES by 6/10th vote and to present these changes to the delegates/members at any time. All changes should accommodate the desires or complaints of the MPs or staff so as to improve the conduct of business online and offline.

_79__ EXECUTIVES: The Executives of the International Parliament may select or approve persons to serve as Chairpersons, Legal Counsels, and Secretaries for each committee and any other position to help conduct the business.

_80__ CHAIR PERSON: Absence of Chairperson. If the Chair should find it necessary to be absent during any part of a committee meeting, he/she shall designate an individual (preferably the Legal Counsel) to assume his/her duties with the same authority.
General Authority of the Chairperson. In addition to exercising such authority conferred upon the Chair elsewhere in these GUIDELINES, the Chair shall declare the opening and closing of each session of the committee, direct its discussions, ensure observance of these GUIDELINES, accord the right to speak, put questions to a vote, and announce decisions of the committee.

_81__ Statements by the Executives. The ten elected Executives, or any person designated by the ten elected Executives, may at any time make oral or written statements to a committee.

_82__ MEMBERS: Number of Accredited Delegates. The number of delegates allowed on any delegation of the Parliament shall be limited to MIPs and Donor MIPs only.

_83__ DIPLOMATIC COURTESY: All delegates MUST accord all other delegates diplomatic courtesy at all times. Any delegate or visitor who, after being advised by the Chair, persists in an obvious attempt to divert the meeting from its intended purpose, or who otherwise attempts to disrupt the proceedings, shall be subject to disciplinary action and expulsion by the Chairperson.

_84__ AGENDA

_85__ AGENDA Selection of Agenda Items. Agenda items shall be selected by the Executive Committee. Once selected, these items are fixed for the duration of the conference and no other items will be discussed.

_86__ ORDER OF CONSIDERATION OF AGENDA ITEMS: Agenda items will be considered in the order in which they appear in the agenda eballot, unless that order is altered by a majority of the Committee.
The first set of agenda items approved by the majority (6 of ten minimum) will be known as "RESOLUTION NUMBER 2".
As new Executives are elected, the incoming executives will be asked to approve (or decline) all previous RESOLUTIONS and should the number of approving executives falls below a 6/10ths majority of Executives then the RESOLUTION is considered unelected, invalid and withdrawn. Only resolutions that retain a majority support of the Ten Executives can be considered approved.
New executives have 60 days following the election of their name to approve all RESOLUTIONS beginning with RESOLUTION NUMBER 2, 3, 4, etc. and RESOLUTION NUMBER 1 is not affected by incoming and outgoing executives because the majority coalition electing RESOLUTION NUMBER 1 consists of MIPs of whom Executives may be one.

_87__ PRIOR APPROVED RESOLUTIONS: Order of Consideration of Prior-Approved Resolutions. Prior-approved resolutions are resolutions that were received by the specified deadline and were deemed appropriate by the staff. They will receive priority over other resolutions. The order of appearance of resolutions before the Committee is determined by the date in which they were received, and is listed under the appropriate committee topic in that order in the resolution book by the Secretary. When the Chair opens debate on any agenda item, any delegate may move for consideration of an approved resolution on the agenda item that has been submitted to the chair with signatories of 1/8 of the delegations present. If the motion is seconded, the Chair will direct the committee to an immediate vote without debate on the motion, a majority being required for consideration. If no resolution receives a majority vote in favor of consideration, the Committee will automatically have before it for consideration the first resolution in the resolution book under that agenda item that has been received by the chair with the appropriate number of signatories.

_88__ CONSIDERATION OF RESOLUTIONS WITHOUT PRIOR APPROVAL: Resolutions that were not received by the specified deadline may still be considered, but not until 1/2 of the prior approved resolutions on the agenda item have been considered. For a resolution without prior approval to be considered, it must relate to the committee topic currently being debated, be submitted to the chair with signatories of 1/8 of the delegations present, and the delegate must supply enough copies of the resolution for each delegation present. Once these conditions have been met, any delegate may move for consideration of the resolution. If the motion is seconded, the chair will direct the committee to an immediate vote without debate on the motion, a majority being required for consideration.

_89__ SUBSTANTIVE PROPOSALS: Delegates will receive selected resolutions for consideration no later than at the time of the conference registration. The delegates must submit resolutions in the proper form by the deadline set by the Executive Committee.

_90__ Reporting Resolutions to the Parliament. The Chair of each committee shall report resolutions passed by that committee to the Parliament for its consideration. If a committee fails to approve a resolution on an agenda item, it shall submit a "Declaration of No Report" on that agenda item. That topic area will not be considered by the Parliament.

_91__ Amendments. All amendments to resolutions must be signed by one sponsoring delegation and at least one other seconding delegation; they must be submitted on an official amendment form for approval by the Legal Counsel and must be labeled with an identifying number by the Secretary. Secondary amendments and amendments by substitution are not acceptable. Obvious typographical efforts will be brought to the Committee's attention and collected by the Chair with no vote required. To move an amendment to the floor, recognition by the Chair and introduction of the amendment will suffice; no vote shall be required. Once an amendment has been brought to the floor, the Committee shall consider only the amendments and not the Resolutions until final action on the amendment has been taken (except to the extent that the amendment pertains to the Resolution).

_92__ Definition of Amendment and Voting on Amendments. An amendment is a motion that adds to, deletes from, or revises any part of a resolution. A series of alterations proposed by a single delegation to the same resolution shall be considered as a single amendment unless a motion is made to divide it.

_93__ Closure of Debate. A delegate may move to close debate at any time on any matter. Such a motion closes all substantive debate on the matters before the body at that time, except when such a motion would interrupt a speaker. Two delegates may speak against closure, and the motion will then be put to a vote. During debate on an amendment, a delegate may move for closure of debate on the resolution.

_99__ MOTIONS - ORDER OF PROCEDURAL MOTIONS

The motions as indicated in the Short Form of Points and Motions have precedence, in the order given, over all other proposals or motions before the committee.

Adjournment of Debate. During the discussion of any matter, a delegate may move the adjournment of debate on that matter. One delegate may speak in favor of the motion and one opposed. The motion shall then be put to an immediate vote. Adjournment of debate on a resolution or amendment has the effect of tabling that item and moves the committee on to the next order of business. See also 8.9 on Reconsideration.

Closure of Debate. A delegate may move to close debate at any time on any matter. Such a motion closes all substantive debate on the matters before the body at that time, except when such a motion would interrupt a speaker. Two delegates may speak against closure, and the motion will then be put to a vote. During debate on an amendment, a delegate may move for closure of debate on the resolution. if closure passes, then the amendment shall be voted on first followed by the resolution.

Move a Resolution to the Floor. Used to bring an approved resolution to the floor, this motion may not interrupt a speaker and is not debatable. No second is required.

Suspension of the Meeting. During the discussion of any matter, a delegate may move to suspend the meeting. Suspending a meeting recesses it until the time specified in the motion; the Chair may request the mover to modify the time. When the committee reconvenes it will continue with its business from the point at which suspension was moved.

Adjournment of the Meeting. The motion of adjournment means that all business of the committee has been completed, and that the committee win not reconvene until the next Annual Session. The Chair may refuse to recognize a motion to adjourn the meeting if the Committee still has business before it. A motion to adjourn is not debatable, and will be put to an immediate vote.

Decisions of Competence. Any motion calling for a decision on the competence of the Committee to discuss or adopt a proposal shall be put to a vote before the vote is taken on the proposal in question. If a Committee decides it is not competent to discuss or vote on an amendment or resolution, the effect is the same as adjourning debate on the matter. See also 8.9 on Reconsideration.

Withdrawal of Motions. A motion may be withdrawn by its proposer at any time before voting on it has begun, provided the motion has not been amended. A withdrawn motion may be reintroduced by any other delegation.

Reconsideration of Proposals. When a proposal has been adopted, or rejected through a vote of adjournment or "no competence", it may be reconsidered at the same session by an affirmative vote of two-thirds of the members present and voting. The motion to reconsider must be made by a delegation which originally voted on the prevailing side of the proposal; thus, reconsideration may be moved only on the proposals voted on by roll-call.

Division of the Question. A motion to divide the question, proposing that parts of an amendment or resolution be voted on separately, is in order at any time prior to commencement of voting on the amendment or resolution. Motions to divide shall apply only to operative clauses. Permission to speak on the motion shall be granted to one speaker in favor and one opposed, after which there shall be an immediate vote. The first motion for division to receive a majority vote shall become the final manner in which the proposal is presented. Those parts of the proposal which are approved shall be put to a vote as a whole. If all operative clauses of a proposal have been rejected, the proposal as a whole has been rejected.

Dilatory Motions. The Chair may rule as dilatory, and therefore out of order, any motion repeating or closely approximating a substantive measure on which the committee has already rendered an opinion. Such rulings can not be appealed.

Appealing a Decision of the Chair. Rulings of the chair can be appealed unless otherwise specified in these GUIDELINES. Appeals can be debated by one speaker in favor and one opposed.

At the end of roll-call, but before rights of explanation and the subsequent announcement of the vote, the Secretary will ask for changes of vote. A delegation may not change from "0" to "#1", or "#1 with right of explanation" or from "0" to "0 with right of explanation." Those abstaining may be accorded rights of explanation. The result of the vote shall be inserted into the Committee record.

_27__ Such ballots may be retype set or altered to specifically identify their select nominees' correct name and party affiliation.

The Body itself has always held this wisdom of natural laws for our organ/gland functioning on 253 circuits of personal powers (but not always available until infrared could shine the light on it). The Body's own immense wisdom can show us how our next decision degenerates us or regenerates us (based on 40 years of scientific research using infrared technology that can be tracked, measured and decoded by the Language of the Body itself). This Self Evident and undeniable truth from our energetic design makes it an unparalleled guide to help humans make decisions (about voting, laws, or new customs, etc.) that can regenerate us from within as well as from without. (http://www.consciousnesssystems.com [1] to read the book). Also, VOLUNTARY LAW: The blog site http://vlda.org/, the Voluntary Law Development Association, owned by Jonathan Jaech will be added to the proposed

_67__ Should a Donor MP/BoD/political entity who had been elected to a free seat, then be unelected and their name is no longer an elected free member, then their name will be automatically reinstated as a Donor MIP, BoD or committee member if their donation remained on the parliament's records.

In addition to exercising such authority conferred upon the Chair elsewhere in these GUIDELINES, the Chair shall declare the opening and closing of each session of the committee, direct its discussions, ensure observance of these GUIDELINES, accord the right to speak, put questions to a vote, and announce decisions of the committee.

_82__ Statements by the Executives. The ten elected Executives, or any person designated by the ten elected Executives, may at any time make oral or written statements to a committee.

_83__ MEMBERS: Number of Accredited Delegates. The number of delegates allowed on any delegation of the Parliament shall be limited to MIPs and Donor MIPs only.

_84__ DIPLOMATIC COURTESY: All delegates MUST accord all other delegates diplomatic courtesy at all times. Any delegate or visitor who, after being advised by the Chair, persists in an obvious attempt to divert the meeting from its intended purpose, or who otherwise attempts to disrupt the proceedings, shall be subject to disciplinary action and expulsion by the Chairperson.

_85__ AGENDA

_86__ AGENDA Selection of Agenda Items. Agenda items shall be selected by the Executive Committee. Once selected, these items are fixed for the duration of the conference and no other items will be discussed.

_87__ ORDER OF CONSIDERATION OF AGENDA ITEMS: Agenda items will be considered in the order in which they appear in the agenda eballot, unless that order is altered by a majority of the Committee.

_88__ PRIOR APPROVED RESOLUTIONS: Order of Consideration of Prior-Approved Resolutions. Prior-approved resolutions are resolutions that were received by the specified deadline and were deemed appropriate by the staff. They will receive priority over other resolutions. The order of appearance of resolutions before the Committee is determined by the date in which they were received, and is listed under the appropriate committee topic in that order in the resolution book by the Secretary. When the Chair opens debate on any agenda item, any delegate may move for consideration of an approved resolution on the agenda item that has been submitted to the chair with signatories of 1/8 of the delegations present. If the motion is seconded, the Chair will direct the committee to an immediate vote without debate on the motion, a majority being required for consideration. If no resolution receives a majority vote in favor of consideration, the Committee will automatically have before it for consideration the first resolution in the resolution book under that agenda item that has been received by the chair with the appropriate number of signatories.

_89__ CONSIDERATION OF RESOLUTIONS WITHOUT PRIOR APPROVAL: Resolutions that were not received by the specified deadline may still be considered, but not until 1/2 of the prior approved resolutions on the agenda item have been considered. For a resolution without prior approval to be considered, it must relate to the committee topic currently being debated, be submitted to the chair with signatories of 1/8 of the delegations present, and the delegate must supply enough copies of the resolution for each delegation present. Once these conditions have been met, any delegate may move for consideration of the resolution. If the motion is seconded, the chair will direct the committee to an immediate vote without debate on the motion, a majority being required for consideration.

_90__ SUBSTANTIVE PROPOSALS: Delegates will receive selected resolutions for consideration no later than at the time of the conference registration. The delegates must submit resolutions in the proper form by the deadline set by the Executive Committee.

_91__ Reporting Resolutions to the Parliament. The Chair of each committee shall report resolutions passed by that committee to the Parliament for its consideration. If a committee fails to approve a resolution on an agenda item, it shall submit a "Declaration of No Report" on that agenda item. That topic area will not be considered by the Parliament.

_92__ Amendments. All amendments to resolutions must be signed by one sponsoring delegation and at least one other seconding delegation; they must be submitted on an official amendment form for approval by the Legal Counsel and must be labeled with an identifying number by the Secretary. Secondary amendments and amendments by substitution are not acceptable. Obvious typographical efforts will be brought to the Committee's attention and collected by the Chair with no vote required. To move an amendment to the floor, recognition by the Chair and introduction of the amendment will suffice; no vote shall be required. Once an amendment has been brought to the floor, the Committee shall consider only the amendments and not the Resolutions until final action on the amendment has been taken (except to the extent that the amendment pertains to the Resolution).

_93__ Definition of Amendment and Voting on Amendments. An amendment is a motion that adds to, deletes from, or revises any part of a resolution. A series of alterations proposed by a single delegation to the same resolution shall be considered as a single amendment unless a motion is made to divide it.

__94_ Closure of Debate. A delegate may move to close debate at any time on any matter. Such a motion closes all substantive debate on the matters before the body at that time, except when such a motion would interrupt a speaker. Two delegates may speak against closure, and the motion will then be put to a vote. During debate on an amendment, a delegate may move for closure of debate on the resolution. If closure passes, then the amendment shall be voted on first followed by the resolution.

_95__ Move a Resolution to the Floor. Used to bring an approved resolution to the floor, this motion may not interrupt a speaker and is not debatable. No second is required.

_96__ DEBATE AND SPEECH GUIDELINES: Speeches. No delegate may address the committee without having previously obtained the permission of the Chair. The Chair shall call upon speakers in the order in which they signify their desire to speak. Delegates may not interrupt a speaker except on a point of order or point of personal privilege. Abusing these rights may be considered violations of diplomatic courtesy, and can result in disciplinary action taken by the chair. Motions should be made at the conclusion of the speaker's remarks; by making a motion, the speaker yields the floor.

_97__ Time Limit on Debate. The committee or the Chair may limit or extend the time allotted to each speaker and the number of times each delegate may speak on a proposal. There may be one speaker in favor and one opposed to the limitation/extension.

_98__ Right of Reply. During debate, the Chair may accord the right of reply to any delegate if a speech by another delegate contains unusual or extraordinary language clearly insulting to personal or national dignity. The decision granting a right of reply may not be appealed. Requests for a right of reply shall be in writing to the Chair. The Chair will limit the time for the reply. There shall be no reply to a reply.

_99__ POINTS - IN ORDER OF PRIORITY

Point of Order. If, during the discussion of any matter, a delegate believes that the committee is proceeding in a manner contrary to these GUIDELINES, he or she may rise to a point of order. The delegate so rising will be immediately recognized by the Chair and the point ruled upon. A delegate rising to a point of order may not speak on the substance of any matter under discussion.

Point of Personal Privilege. If a delegate wishes to raise a question or make a request relating to the organization of the meeting, personal comfort, or the conduct of fellow delegates or staff, he/she may rise to a point of personal privilege. When a delegate rises on privilege, the Chair shall take such action as is necessary.

Point of Parliamentary Inquiry. A point of parliamentary inquiry is directed to the Chair for information or guidance on procedure. This point may not interrupt the speaker. It is a question and does not require seconding or allow for debate. Replies by the Chair are not appealable.

Point of Information. If a delegate wishes to obtain a clarification of procedure or a statement of the matter before the committee, the delegate may address a point of information to the Chair. During debate, if a delegate wishes to ask a question of the speaker, a request to question the speaker may be made in the form of a point of information directed to the Chair after the speaker consents to be questioned, all questions and replies are made through the Chair. Delegates shall not interrupt a speaker on a point of information.

_100__ MOTIONS - ORDER OF PROCEDURAL MOTIONS

The motions as indicated in the Short Form of Points and Motions have precedence, in the order given, over all other proposals or motions before the committee.

Adjournment of Debate. During the discussion of any matter, a delegate may move the adjournment of debate on that matter. One delegate may speak in favor of the motion and one opposed. The motion shall then be put to an immediate vote. Adjournment of debate on a resolution or amendment has the effect of tabling that item and moves the committee on to the next order of business. See also 8.9 on Reconsideration.

Closure of Debate. A delegate may move to close debate at any time on any matter. Such a motion closes all substantive debate on the matters before the body at that time, except when such a motion would interrupt a speaker. Two delegates may speak against closure, and the motion will then be put to a vote. During debate on an amendment, a delegate may move for closure of debate on the resolution. if closure passes, then the amendment shall be voted on first followed by the resolution.

Move a Resolution to the Floor. Used to bring an approved resolution to the floor, this motion may not interrupt a speaker and is not debatable. No second is required.

Suspension of the Meeting. During the discussion of any matter, a delegate may move to suspend the meeting. Suspending a meeting recesses it until the time specified in the motion; the Chair may request the mover to modify the time. When the committee reconvenes it will continue with its business from the point at which suspension was moved.

Adjournment of the Meeting. The motion of adjournment means that all business of the committee has been completed, and that the committee win not reconvene until the next Annual Session. The Chair may refuse to recognize a motion to adjourn the meeting if the Committee still has business before it. A motion to adjourn is not debatable, and will be put to an immediate vote.

Decisions of Competence. Any motion calling for a decision on the competence of the Committee to discuss or adopt a proposal shall be put to a vote before the vote is taken on the proposal in question. If a Committee decides it is not competent to discuss or vote on an amendment or resolution, the effect is the same as adjourning debate on the matter. See also 8.9 on Reconsideration.

Withdrawal of Motions. A motion may be withdrawn by its proposer at any time before voting on it has begun, provided the motion has not been amended. A withdrawn motion may be reintroduced by any other delegation.

Reconsideration of Proposals. When a proposal has been adopted, or rejected through a vote of adjournment or "no competence", it may be reconsidered at the same session by an affirmative vote of two-thirds of the members present and voting. The motion to reconsider must be made by a delegation which originally voted on the prevailing side of the proposal; thus, reconsideration may be moved only on the proposals voted on by roll-call.

Division of the Question. A motion to divide the question, proposing that parts of an amendment or resolution be voted on separately, is in order at any time prior to commencement of voting on the amendment or resolution. Motions to divide shall apply only to operative clauses. Permission to speak on the motion shall be granted to one speaker in favor and one opposed, after which there shall be an immediate vote. The first motion for division to receive a majority vote shall become the final manner in which the proposal is presented. Those parts of the proposal which are approved shall be put to a vote as a whole. If all operative clauses of a proposal have been rejected, the proposal as a whole has been rejected.

Dilatory Motions. The Chair may rule as dilatory, and therefore out of order, any motion repeating or closely approximating a substantive measure on which the committee has already rendered an opinion. Such rulings can not be appealed.

Appealing a Decision of the Chair. Rulings of the chair can be appealed unless otherwise specified in these GUIDELINES. Appeals can be debated by one speaker in favor and one opposed.

_103__ VOTING METHODS AND RIGHTS: Each member delegation shall have one vote in each Committee in which it is represented. No delegate may cast a vote on behalf of another member.

_104__ Simple Majority. Unless otherwise specified in these GUIDELINES, decisions in the Committee shall be made by a majority vote of those members present and voting. The phrase "MSPs present and voting" refers to members casting ranked choice votes. Members which cast a final abstention are not voting. If a vote is equally divided between two sums of the same value, the motion fails.

_105__ Method of Voting. The Committee shall use ranked choice voting (RCV). The Chair, however, may grant a request for a roll-call vote; the decision to grant such a request is not appealable. All final votes on resolutions shall be taken by roll-call; the roll shall be called in English alphabetical order beginning with a person selected at random by the Secretary. Delegates shall reply "#1," or "abstain," or "abstain from the order of voting." A member may abstain from the order of voting once during the roll-call; a second abstention from the order of voting will be recorded as an abstention. Rights of explanation are permitted on roll-call votes and may be limited in time by the Chair. At the end of roll-call, but before rights of explanation and the subsequent announcement of the vote, the Secretary will ask for changes of vote. A delegation may not change from "0" to "#1", or "#1 with right of explanation" or from "0" to "0 with right of explanation." Those abstaining may be accorded rights of explanation. The result of the vote shall be inserted into the Committee record.

_106__ ONLINE VOTING: The International Parliament will conduct elections using online voting and all votes will be posted where they can be easily viewed by the public with the information as to who had cast the vote.

_107__ Conduct during Voting. Immediately prior to a vote, the Chair shall describe to the Committee the proposal to be voted on, and shall explain the consequence of a 1 or 0 vote. Voting shall begin upon the chair's declaration and shall end when the results of the vote are announced. Once voting has begun, no delegate shall interrupt the voting except on a point of order or information concerning the actual conduct of the vote, or on a point of personal privilege.

are to be known as "Donor MIPs".

_26__ THE PARTY LEADER within the International Parliament is a label for the highest ranked name categorized under each party. Party leaders are responsible for the distribution of all ballots and rules to the members of their party/category and lists.

_27__ Such ballots may be retype set or altered to specifically identify their select nominees' correct name and party affiliation. All ballots released to public use by the International Parliament's elected secretaries shall count as a legitimate ballot and shall be presumed to represent the correct and most current candidate name information.

_28__ BALLOT: ORDER OF NOMINEES of all names in the parliament elections and subsidiary parliament elections will be determined by the results caused by the voters' ranking of the nominees on the previous election's ballots. This is known as the correct consecutive order of nominee.

Appointed members may be categorized with any party/category that they wish, and the party/category of all members is considered to be the true one. Elected members may decide to change or switch their party/categorization at any time by proclamation. Members automatically qualify for the ballot in the next election cycle under the party/category of their choice.

_55__ HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES MINISTRY: The book "Know Thyself, Your Body's Wisdom for Living Consciously" will be added as a guide to the proposed Health and Human Services Ministry web page. For many ages, humanity has been confused about what decisions regenerate and degenerate our living systems. The Body itself has always held this wisdom of natural laws for our organ/gland functioning on 253 circuits of personal powers (but not always available until infrared could shine the light on it). The Body's own immense wisdom can show us how our next decision degenerates us or regenerates us (based on 40 years of scientific research using infrared technology that can be tracked, measured and decoded by the Language of the Body itself). This Self Evident and undeniable truth from our energetic design makes it an unparalleled guide to help humans make decisions (about voting, laws, or new customs, etc.) that can regenerate us from within as well as from without. (http://www.consciousnesssystems.com [1] to read the book). Also, VOLUNTARY LAW: The blog site http://vlda.org/, the Voluntary Law Development Association, owned by Jonathan Jaech will be added to the proposed

_56__ VOLUNTARY LAW MINISTRY: The Voluntary Law Ministry web page and can accompany 'Know Thyself, Your Body's Wisdom for Living Consciously' (that can both be used as the foundational principles for voluntary international law). These 2 sources of wisdom can promote peace, love and the clarity of energetic truth for successful ways to promote each living systems' regeneration.
The blog site http://vlda.org/, the Voluntary Law Development Association, owned by Jonathan Jaech will be added to the proposed VOTE COUNTING AND VOLUNTARY LAW MINISTRY web page and will be used as the foundation for voluntary international law.

_57__ VOTE COUNTING MINISTRY: The Vote Counting Ministry will make an annual award for the "United Coalition Secure Paper Ballot Award".

_58__ TREASURY MINISTRY: The Treasury Minister of the International Parliament will be accountable only to the five executives of the International Parliament through a vote of confidence.

_59__ MEDIATION AND CONCELIATION MINISTRY: Appeals of a name's removal action may be taken to the Mediation and Conciliation Service Minister where rules for such appeals will be written, voted upon and approved.
Should any financial compensation be asked for or awarded after an appeal had been heard and a ruling had been finalized by the International national Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service Minister which is charged with recommending such financial compensation, then the case can be taken to the All Party System Co.'s International Bureau's Ethics & Grievances Committee of Four where a determination of the exact amount can be made and executed.

_60__ Donor MIPs

_61__ Once the donation/contribution is received, the donors' funds will be deposited into a bank account which is controlled by the ten executives of the International Parliament.

_62__ Donors: New seats will be made available in a donor section of the International Parliament's members of national parliament. All donors, who contribute money to the political entity International Parliament at the minimum donation price, will promptly and automatically become a "donor member of international parliament (Donor MIP)", and they will be members with all voting rights on any geographical level or region that they pick and may be moved from time to time upon request.

_63__ The donor fee is a one-time membership fee which will be tied to the exact cost of one unit of common stock in the parliament's All Party System Co.'s International Bureau, the same exact price of the purchase price of the share at the time the donation is accepted. This donation level does not represent a purchase of any stocks.

_64__ The donation will be recorded and should the "Donor MIP" wish to "stand down", then the donation amount will be not be refunded.

_65__ The numbers of seats for donor members shall never be more than the number of free elected members in the national assembly, political party, or other entity in the International Parliament.

_66__ Once the numbers of members in the international parliament reach saturation point and no seats are available for donors, then new donors with the lowest donation level (or the chronologically newer or more recent membership in cases of ties) will automatically spill over to a lower geographical region or they may request to have their name moved to a different geographical level.

_67__ Should a Donor MP/BoD/political entity who had been elected to a free seat, then be unelected and their name is no longer an elected free member, then their name will be automatically reinstated as a Donor MIP, BoD or committee member if their donation remained on the parliament's records.

_68__ All donor members shall have access to all financial records for the International Parliament. More detailed information which isn't available on the Treasury Ministry's web page will be made available to Donor MIPs when a request is made to the Treasury Minister.

_72__ The International Parliament's subsidiary Republic "Unity Coalition" elections shall be in two phases; one before the country's primaries and one after the country's primaries. That way, a strong emphasis can be placed on official state-recognized ballot-qualified and write-in candidates both before the primaries and after the primaries, and the dates are customized for each of the country's official primaries.

_73__ UNITY PLATFORM

_74__ Conduct an international Direct Democracy (DD) election which will elect planks to a "Unity Platform".

_75__ The promotion of the Unity Coalition's "Unity Platform" can used used as an example of teamwork. The team can be promoted as being dynamic so that every item is up for a continual "vote of confidence" by all the members, all the time. That way, the recruitment of new members can take place in order to collect more votes for improving the planks on the Unity Platform.

_76__ PLANKS OF THE PLATFORM: The ten elected executives shall elect the UNITY PLATFORM with a series of "planks" from all the items they pick and rank from the DD election.

_77__ Guideline of Priority and Procedure

_78__ GENERAL PROVISIONS: Guideline of Priority and Procedure. The GUIDELINES contained on this web page shall be the official first GUIDELINES of procedure for the International Parliament and will be used for all transactions of business once ratified by a majority of the Members of Parliament (MPs). These GUIDELINES will take precedence over any other set of GUIDELINES.

_79__ GUIDELINE CHANGES: The Executive Committee reserves the right to make changes in these GUIDELINES by 6/10th vote and to present these changes to the delegates/members at any time. All changes should accommodate the desires or complaints of the MPs or staff so as to improve the conduct of business online and offline.

_83__ MEMBERS: Number of Accredited Delegates. The number of delegates allowed on any delegation of the Parliament shall be limited to MIPs and Donor MIPs only.

_84__ DIPLOMATIC COURTESY: All delegates MUST accord all other delegates diplomatic courtesy at all times.

_85__ AGENDA

_86__ AGENDA Selection of Agenda Items. Agenda items shall be selected by the Executive Committee. Once selected, these items are fixed for the duration of the conference and no other items will be discussed.

_87__ ORDER OF CONSIDERATION OF AGENDA ITEMS: Agenda items will be considered in the order in which they appear in the agenda eballot, unless that order is altered by a majority of the Committee.

_88__ PRIOR APPROVED RESOLUTIONS: Order of Consideration of Prior-Approved Resolutions. Prior-approved resolutions are resolutions that were received by the specified deadline and were deemed appropriate by the staff. They will receive priority over other resolutions. The order of appearance of resolutions before the Committee is determined by the date in which they were received, and is listed under the appropriate committee topic in that order in the resolution book by the Secretary. When the Chair opens debate on any agenda item, any delegate may move for consideration of an approved resolution on the agenda item that has been submitted to the chair with signatories of 1/8 of the delegations present. If the motion is seconded, the Chair will direct the committee to an immediate vote without debate on the motion, a majority being required for consideration. If no resolution receives a majority vote in favor of consideration, the Committee will automatically have before it for consideration the first resolution in the resolution book under that agenda item that has been received by the chair with the appropriate number of signatories.

_89__ CONSIDERATION OF RESOLUTIONS WITHOUT PRIOR APPROVAL: Resolutions that were not received by the specified deadline may still be considered, but not until 1/2 of the prior approved resolutions on the agenda item have been considered. For a resolution without prior approval to be considered, it must relate to the committee topic currently being debated, be submitted to the chair with signatories of 1/8 of the delegations present, and the delegate must supply enough copies of the resolution for each delegation present.

Secondary amendments and amendments by substitution are not acceptable. Obvious typographical efforts will be brought to the Committee's attention and collected by the Chair with no vote required. To move an amendment to the floor, recognition by the Chair and introduction of the amendment will suffice; no vote shall be required. Once an amendment has been brought to the floor, the Committee shall consider only the amendments and not the Resolutions until final action on the amendment has been taken (except to the extent that the amendment pertains to the Resolution).

_93__ Definition of Amendment and Voting on Amendments. An amendment is a motion that adds to, deletes from, or revises any part of a resolution. A series of alterations proposed by a single delegation to the same resolution shall be considered as a single amendment unless a motion is made to divide it.

__94_ Closure of Debate. A delegate may move to close debate at any time on any matter. Such a motion closes all substantive debate on the matters before the body at that time, except when such a motion would interrupt a speaker. Two delegates may speak against closure, and the motion will then be put to a vote. During debate on an amendment, a delegate may move for closure of debate on the resolution. If closure passes, then the amendment shall be voted on first followed by the resolution.

_95__ Move a Resolution to the Floor. Used to bring an approved resolution to the floor, this motion may not interrupt a speaker and is not debatable. No second is required.

_96__ DEBATE AND SPEECH GUIDELINES: Speeches. No delegate may address the committee without having previously obtained the permission of the Chair. The Chair shall call upon speakers in the order in which they signify their desire to speak. Delegates may not interrupt a speaker except on a point of order or point of personal privilege. Abusing these rights may be considered violations of diplomatic courtesy, and can result in disciplinary action taken by the chair. Motions should be made at the conclusion of the speaker's remarks; by making a motion, the speaker yields the floor.

_97__ Time Limit on Debate. The committee or the Chair may limit or extend the time allotted to each speaker and the number of times each delegate may speak on a proposal. There may be one speaker in favor and one opposed to the limitation/extension.

_98__ Right of Reply. During debate, the Chair may accord the right of reply to any delegate if a speech by another delegate contains unusual or extraordinary language clearly insulting to personal or national dignity. The decision granting a right of reply may not be appealed. Requests for a right of reply shall be in writing to the Chair. The Chair will limit the time for the reply. There shall be no reply to a reply.

_99__ POINTS - IN ORDER OF PRIORITY

Point of Order. If, during the discussion of any matter, a delegate believes that the committee is proceeding in a manner contrary to these GUIDELINES, he or she may rise to a point of order. The delegate so rising will be immediately recognized by the Chair and the point ruled upon. A delegate rising to a point of order may not speak on the substance of any matter under discussion.

Point of Personal Privilege. If a delegate wishes to raise a question or make a request relating to the organization of the meeting, personal comfort, or the conduct of fellow delegates or staff, he/she may rise to a point of personal privilege. When a delegate rises on privilege, the Chair shall take such action as is necessary.

Point of Parliamentary Inquiry. A point of parliamentary inquiry is directed to the Chair for information or guidance on procedure. This point may not interrupt the speaker. It is a question and does not require seconding or allow for debate. Replies by the Chair are not appealable.

Point of Information. If a delegate wishes to obtain a clarification of procedure or a statement of the matter before the committee, the delegate may address a point of information to the Chair. During debate, if a delegate wishes to ask a question of the speaker, a request to question the speaker may be made in the form of a point of information directed to the Chair after the speaker consents to be questioned, all questions and replies are made through the Chair. Delegates shall not interrupt a speaker on a point of information.

_100__ MOTIONS - ORDER OF PROCEDURAL MOTIONS

The motions as indicated in the Short Form of Points and Motions have precedence, in the order given, over all other proposals or motions before the committee.

Adjournment of Debate. During the discussion of any matter, a delegate may move the adjournment of debate on that matter. One delegate may speak in favor of the motion and one opposed. The motion shall then be put to an immediate vote. Adjournment of debate on a resolution or amendment has the effect of tabling that item and moves the committee on to the next order of business. See also 8.9 on Reconsideration.

Closure of Debate. A delegate may move to close debate at any time on any matter. Such a motion closes all substantive debate on the matters before the body at that time, except when such a motion would interrupt a speaker. Two delegates may speak against closure, and the motion will then be put to a vote. During debate on an amendment, a delegate may move for closure of debate on the resolution. if closure passes, then the amendment shall be voted on first followed by the resolution.

Move a Resolution to the Floor. Used to bring an approved resolution to the floor, this motion may not interrupt a speaker and is not debatable. No second is required.

Suspension of the Meeting. During the discussion of any matter, a delegate may move to suspend the meeting. Suspending a meeting recesses it until the time specified in the motion; the Chair may request the mover to modify the time. When the committee reconvenes it will continue with its business from the point at which suspension was moved.

Adjournment of the Meeting. The motion of adjournment means that all business of the committee has been completed, and that the committee win not reconvene until the next Annual Session. The Chair may refuse to recognize a motion to adjourn the meeting if the Committee still has business before it. A motion to adjourn is not debatable, and will be put to an immediate vote.

Decisions of Competence. Any motion calling for a decision on the competence of the Committee to discuss or adopt a proposal shall be put to a vote before the vote is taken on the proposal in question. If a Committee decides it is not competent to discuss or vote on an amendment or resolution, the effect is the same as adjourning debate on the matter. See also 8.9 on Reconsideration.

Withdrawal of Motions. A motion may be withdrawn by its proposer at any time before voting on it has begun, provided the motion has not been amended. A withdrawn motion may be reintroduced by any other delegation.

Reconsideration of Proposals. When a proposal has been adopted, or rejected through a vote of adjournment or "no competence", it may be reconsidered at the same session by an affirmative vote of two-thirds of the members present and voting. The motion to reconsider must be made by a delegation which originally voted on the prevailing side of the proposal; thus, reconsideration may be moved only on the proposals voted on by roll-call.

Division of the Question. A motion to divide the question, proposing that parts of an amendment or resolution be voted on separately, is in order at any time prior to commencement of voting on the amendment or resolution. Motions to divide shall apply only to operative clauses. Permission to speak on the motion shall be granted to one speaker in favor and one opposed, after which there shall be an immediate vote. The first motion for division to receive a majority vote shall become the final manner in which the proposal is presented. Those parts of the proposal which are approved shall be put to a vote as a whole. If all operative clauses of a proposal have been rejected, the proposal as a whole has been rejected.

Dilatory Motions. The Chair may rule as dilatory, and therefore out of order, any motion repeating or closely approximating a substantive measure on which the committee has already rendered an opinion. Such rulings can not be appealed.

Appealing a Decision of the Chair. Rulings of the chair can be appealed unless otherwise specified in these GUIDELINES. Appeals can be debated by one speaker in favor and one opposed.

_104__ Simple Majority. Unless otherwise specified in these GUIDELINES, decisions in the Committee shall be made by a majority vote of those members present and voting. The phrase "MSPs present and voting" refers to members casting ranked choice votes. Members which cast a final abstention are not voting. If a vote is equally divided between two sums of the same value, the motion fails.

_105__ Method of Voting. The Committee shall use ranked choice voting (RCV). The Chair, however, may grant a request for a roll-call vote; the decision to grant such a request is not appealable. All final votes on resolutions shall be taken by roll-call; the roll shall be called in English alphabetical order beginning with a person selected at random by the Secretary. Delegates shall reply "#1," or "abstain," or "abstain from the order of voting." A member may abstain from the order of voting once during the roll-call; a second abstention from the order of voting will be recorded as an abstention. Rights of explanation are permitted on roll-call votes and may be limited in time by the Chair. At the end of roll-call, but before rights of explanation and the subsequent announcement of the vote, the Secretary will ask for changes of vote. A delegation may not change from "0" to "#1", or "#1 with right of explanation" or from "0" to "0 with right of explanation." Those abstaining may be accorded rights of explanation. The result of the vote shall be inserted into the Committee record.

_106__ ONLINE VOTING: The International Parliament will conduct elections using online voting and all votes will be posted where they can be easily viewed by the public with the information as to who had cast the vote.

_107__ Conduct during Voting. Immediately prior to a vote, the Chair shall describe to the Committee the proposal to be voted on, and shall explain the consequence of a 1 or 0 vote.

_37__ SPACE FOR THREE OR MORE WRITE-IN choices must be provided on each and every ballot, in all elections.

_38__ CATEGORIZATION AND PARTY NAMES The first and most important criterion in determining the nominee's party/category is the nominee's most recently requested or declared party/category in Parliament matters. The second most important criterion in determining the nominee's party/category is determined by the nominee's state's records, as written by the member while registering to vote. Appointed members may be categorized with any party/category that they wish, and the party/category of all members is considered to be the true one. Elected members may decide to change or switch their party/categorization at any time by proclamation. Members automatically qualify for the ballot in the next election cycle under the party/category of their choice.

_39__ First and last names are preferred, however all names nominated will be permitted on the ballot as well as the party/category of the nominee. If party/category is not known, the label "[Info. Not Avail.]" will be used. A nominee's name (and thus identity) may appear on the ballot only once, so fusion voting is not allowed. Other than the "automatic nominations", all new nominees within each party /category will qualify for the ballot, to be ranked below all other names on the prepared ballot. The order of these names will be determined first based on the rankings of "nomination ballots", and secondly by chronological order of the dates that the nominee's name was received.

_40__ Donor MIPs are not elected during regular election cycles of the parliament's elections but they receive all same voting rights plus special donor privileges which apply to the donation level of which the donor has achieved.

_41__ RESIGNATIONS. When any elected member, executive or minister, stands down, resigns, retires, or dies - the name is deleted. Then the next highest ranked name is automatically elected to the seat.

_42__ When a candidate who has chosen to stand down but then wishes to return to the position which they had departed, then they must first be re-affirmed by all the voters who had previously cast a vote for them.

_43__ TEN EXECUTIVES

_44__ MIPs: Once elected, all new Members of International Parliament (MIPs) may change their vote as a "vote of confidence" for the ten executives into perpetuity.

_45__ THE VOICE of the International Parliament will be the ten executives.

_46__ Each of the elected ten executives may pick a seat title once elected.

__47_ The ten executives elect up to sixty full Cabinet Ministers using the "parliamentary go-ahead".

_48__ The International Parliament's ten executives agree to rank all names nominated by each of the other nine executives, thus guaranteeing that each of the ten executives elects 1/10th of the 60 cabinet ministers.

_49__ THE TEN EXECUTIVES recruits as many people as possible who will work in the Cabinet to run the efforts, elects the planks and run the parliament's efforts free from political conflict or bias. The executives do not control who gets elected to the general assembly.

_50__ The ten executives of the International Parliament (IP) will serve as "Founding Executives" on the unity business entity named All Party System Co., International Bureau, which is established in order to report all unifying news, business, financial matters, vote counting and results of vote counting of the IP to the public.

_51__ SIXTY CABINET MINISTERS

_52__ MINISTRY: Once a simple majority vote by at least six of the ten executives establishes elects a new Minister, then a Ministry of the International Paliament is established.

_53__ MINISTRY DIRECTORS: Ministries may elect up to fifty Directors and any number of resolutions, agenda items, guidelines and administrators.

_54__ All International national Cabinet Ministers must be live, real people and no avatars or anonymous names may be used by the elected Cabinet Ministers. Only real names can be used and verification of the member's true name may be requested when such verifications are of interest from the ten executives.

_55__ HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES MINISTRY: The book "Know Thyself, Your Body's Wisdom for Living Consciously" will be added as a guide to the proposed Health and Human Services Ministry web page. For many ages, humanity has been confused about what decisions regenerate and degenerate our living systems. The Body itself has always held this wisdom of natural laws for our organ/gland functioning on 253 circuits of personal powers (but not always available until infrared could shine the light on it). The Body's own immense wisdom can show us how our next decision degenerates us or regenerates us (based on 40 years of scientific research using infrared technology that can be tracked, measured and decoded by the Language of the Body itself). This Self Evident and undeniable truth from our energetic design makes it an unparalleled guide to help humans make decisions (about voting, laws, or new customs, etc.) that can regenerate us from within as well as from without. (http://www.consciousnesssystems.com [1] to read the book). Also, VOLUNTARY LAW: The blog site http://vlda.org/, the Voluntary Law Development Association, owned by Jonathan Jaech will be added to the proposed

_56__ VOLUNTARY LAW MINISTRY: The Voluntary Law Ministry web page and can accompany 'Know Thyself, Your Body's Wisdom for Living Consciously' (that can both be used as the foundational principles for voluntary international law). These 2 sources of wisdom can promote peace, love and the clarity of energetic truth for successful ways to promote each living systems' regeneration.
The blog site http://vlda.org/, the Voluntary Law Development Association, owned by Jonathan Jaech will be added to the proposed VOTE COUNTING AND VOLUNTARY LAW MINISTRY web page and will be used as the foundation for voluntary international law.

_57__ VOTE COUNTING MINISTRY: The Vote Counting Ministry will make an annual award for the "United Coalition Secure Paper Ballot Award".

_58__ TREASURY MINISTRY: The Treasury Minister of the International Parliament will be accountable only to the five executives of the International Parliament through a vote of confidence. The Treasury Ministry is where specific records and agreements are posted for the public. The Treasury Ministry will maintain all records for Donor MIPs and other financial records such as revenue inflow, donor rankings, savings and expenditures.

_59__ MEDIATION AND CONCELIATION MINISTRY: Appeals of a name's removal action may be taken to the Mediation and Conciliation Service Minister where rules for such appeals will be written, voted upon and approved.
Should any financial compensation be asked for or awarded after an appeal had been heard and a ruling had been finalized by the International national Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service Minister which is charged with recommending such financial compensation, then the case can be taken to the All Party System Co.'s International Bureau's Ethics & Grievances Committee of Four where a determination of the exact amount can be made and executed.

_60__ Donor MIPs

_61__ Once the donation/contribution is received, the donors' funds will be deposited into a bank account which is controlled by the ten executives of the International Parliament.

_62__ Donors: New seats will be made available in a donor section of the International Parliament's members of national parliament. All donors, who contribute money to the political entity International Parliament at the minimum donation price, will promptly and automatically become a "donor member of international parliament (Donor MIP)", and they will be members with all voting rights on any geographical level or region that they pick and may be moved from time to time upon request.

_63__ The donor fee is a one-time membership fee which will be tied to the exact cost of one unit of common stock in the parliament's All Party System Co.'s International Bureau, the same exact price of the purchase price of the share at the time the donation is accepted. This donation level does not represent a purchase of any stocks.

_64__ The donation will be recorded and should the "Donor MIP" wish to "stand down", then the donation amount will be not be refunded.

_65__ The numbers of seats for donor members shall never be more than the number of free elected members in the national assembly, political party, or other entity in the International Parliament.

_66__ Once the numbers of members in the international parliament reach saturation point and no seats are available for donors, then new donors with the lowest donation level (or the chronologically newer or more recent membership in cases of ties) will automatically spill over to a lower geographical region or they may request to have their name moved to a different geographical level.

_67__ Should a Donor MP/BoD/political entity who had been elected to a free seat, then be unelected and their name is no longer an elected free member, then their name will be automatically reinstated as a Donor MIP, BoD or committee member if their donation remained on the parliament's records.

_68__ All donor members shall have access to all financial records for the International Parliament. More detailed information which isn't available on the Treasury Ministry's web page will be made available to Donor MIPs when a request is made to the Treasury Minister.

_69__ The donation cost and payment method for the Donor Members will be the same cost and method for all geographical levels and regions in the International. All payments are to be in US dollars only.

_70__ United Coalition

_71__ Declare that all of the elected and appointed members of the International Parliament, all countries' national parliaments, all subsidiary super-state, mini-state and county micro-state parliaments, to be members of a national and international "Unity Coalition" or "United Coalition" effective November 5th, 2014.

_72__ The International Parliament's subsidiary Republic "Unity Coalition" elections shall be in two phases; one before the country's primaries and one after the country's primaries. That way, a strong emphasis can be placed on official state-recognized ballot-qualified and write-in candidates both before the primaries and after the primaries, and the dates are customized for each of the country's official primaries.

_73__ UNITY PLATFORM

_74__ Conduct an international Direct Democracy (DD) election which will elect planks to a "Unity Platform".

_75__ The promotion of the Unity Coalition's "Unity Platform" can used used as an example of teamwork. The team can be promoted as being dynamic so that every item is up for a continual "vote of confidence" by all the members, all the time. That way, the recruitment of new members can take place in order to collect more votes for improving the planks on the Unity Platform.

_76__ PLANKS OF THE PLATFORM: The ten elected executives shall elect the UNITY PLATFORM with a series of "planks" from all the items they pick and rank from the DD election.

_77__ Guideline of Priority and Procedure

_78__ GENERAL PROVISIONS: Guideline of Priority and Procedure. The GUIDELINES contained on this web page shall be the official first GUIDELINES of procedure for the International Parliament and will be used for all transactions of business once ratified by a majority of the Members of Parliament (MPs). These GUIDELINES will take precedence over any other set of GUIDELINES.

_79__ GUIDELINE CHANGES: The Executive Committee reserves the right to make changes in these GUIDELINES by 6/10th vote and to present these changes to the delegates/members at any time. All changes should accommodate the desires or complaints of the MPs or staff so as to improve the conduct of business online and offline.

_80__ EXECUTIVES: The Executives of the International Parliament may select or approve persons to serve as Chairpersons, Legal Counsels, and Secretaries for each committee and any other position to help conduct the business.

_81__ CHAIR PERSON: Absence of Chairperson. If the Chair should find it necessary to be absent during any part of a committee meeting, he/she shall designate an individual (preferably the Legal Counsel) to assume his/her duties with the same authority.
General Authority of the Chairperson. In addition to exercising such authority conferred upon the Chair elsewhere in these GUIDELINES, the Chair shall declare the opening and closing of each session of the committee, direct its discussions, ensure observance of these GUIDELINES, accord the right to speak, put questions to a vote, and announce decisions of the committee.

_82__ Statements by the Executives. The ten elected Executives, or any person designated by the ten elected Executives, may at any time make oral or written statements to a committee.

_83__ MEMBERS: Number of Accredited Delegates. The number of delegates allowed on any delegation of the Parliament shall be limited to MIPs and Donor MIPs only.

_84__ DIPLOMATIC COURTESY: All delegates MUST accord all other delegates diplomatic courtesy at all times. Any delegate or visitor who, after being advised by the Chair, persists in an obvious attempt to divert the meeting from its intended purpose, or who otherwise attempts to disrupt the proceedings, shall be subject to disciplinary action and expulsion by the Chairperson.

_85__ AGENDA

_86__ AGENDA Selection of Agenda Items. Agenda items shall be selected by the Executive Committee. Once selected, these items are fixed for the duration of the conference and no other items will be discussed.

_87__ ORDER OF CONSIDERATION OF AGENDA ITEMS: Agenda items will be considered in the order in which they appear in the agenda eballot, unless that order is altered by a majority of the Committee.

_88__ PRIOR APPROVED RESOLUTIONS: Order of Consideration of Prior-Approved Resolutions. Prior-approved resolutions are resolutions that were received by the specified deadline and were deemed appropriate by the staff. They will receive priority over other resolutions. The order of appearance of resolutions before the Committee is determined by the date in which they were received, and is listed under the appropriate committee topic in that order in the resolution book by the Secretary. When the Chair opens debate on any agenda item, any delegate may move for consideration of an approved resolution on the agenda item that has been submitted to the chair with signatories of 1/8 of the delegations present. If the motion is seconded, the Chair will direct the committee to an immediate vote without debate on the motion, a majority being required for consideration. If no resolution receives a majority vote in favor of consideration, the Committee will automatically have before it for consideration the first resolution in the resolution book under that agenda item that has been received by the chair with the appropriate number of signatories.

_89__ CONSIDERATION OF RESOLUTIONS WITHOUT PRIOR APPROVAL: Resolutions that were not received by the specified deadline may still be considered, but not until 1/2 of the prior approved resolutions on the agenda item have been considered. For a resolution without prior approval to be considered, it must relate to the committee topic currently being debated, be submitted to the chair with signatories of 1/8 of the delegations present, and the delegate must supply enough copies of the resolution for each delegation present. Once these conditions have been met, any delegate may move for consideration of the resolution. If the motion is seconded, the chair will direct the committee to an immediate vote without debate on the motion, a majority being required for consideration.

_90__ SUBSTANTIVE PROPOSALS: Delegates will receive selected resolutions for consideration no later than at the time of the conference registration. The delegates must submit resolutions in the proper form by the deadline set by the Executive Committee.

_91__ Reporting Resolutions to the Parliament. The Chair of each committee shall report resolutions passed by that committee to the Parliament for its consideration. If a committee fails to approve a resolution on an agenda item, it shall submit a "Declaration of No Report" on that agenda item. That topic area will not be considered by the Parliament.

_92__ Amendments. All amendments to resolutions must be signed by one sponsoring delegation and at least one other seconding delegation; they must be submitted on an official amendment form for approval by the Legal Counsel and must be labeled with an identifying number by the Secretary. Secondary amendments and amendments by substitution are not acceptable. Obvious typographical efforts will be brought to the Committee's attention and collected by the Chair with no vote required. To move an amendment to the floor, recognition by the Chair and introduction of the amendment will suffice; no vote shall be required. Once an amendment has been brought to the floor, the Committee shall consider only the amendments and not the Resolutions until final action on the amendment has been taken (except to the extent that the amendment pertains to the Resolution).

_93__ Definition of Amendment and Voting on Amendments. An amendment is a motion that adds to, deletes from, or revises any part of a resolution. A series of alterations proposed by a single delegation to the same resolution shall be considered as a single amendment unless a motion is made to divide it.

__94_ Closure of Debate. A delegate may move to close debate at any time on any matter. Such a motion closes all substantive debate on the matters before the body at that time, except when such a motion would interrupt a speaker. Two delegates may speak against closure, and the motion will then be put to a vote. During debate on an amendment, a delegate may move for closure of debate on the resolution. If closure passes, then the amendment shall be voted on first followed by the resolution.

_95__ Move a Resolution to the Floor. Used to bring an approved resolution to the floor, this motion may not interrupt a speaker and is not debatable. No second is required.

_96__ DEBATE AND SPEECH GUIDELINES: Speeches. No delegate may address the committee without having previously obtained the permission of the Chair. The Chair shall call upon speakers in the order in which they signify their desire to speak. Delegates may not interrupt a speaker except on a point of order or point of personal privilege. Abusing these rights may be considered violations of diplomatic courtesy, and can result in disciplinary action taken by the chair. Motions should be made at the conclusion of the speaker's remarks; by making a motion, the speaker yields the floor.

_97__ Time Limit on Debate. The committee or the Chair may limit or extend the time allotted to each speaker and the number of times each delegate may speak on a proposal. There may be one speaker in favor and one opposed to the limitation/extension.

_98__ Right of Reply. During debate, the Chair may accord the right of reply to any delegate if a speech by another delegate contains unusual or extraordinary language clearly insulting to personal or national dignity. The decision granting a right of reply may not be appealed. Requests for a right of reply shall be in writing to the Chair. The Chair will limit the time for the reply. There shall be no reply to a reply.

_99__ POINTS - IN ORDER OF PRIORITY

Point of Order. If, during the discussion of any matter, a delegate believes that the committee is proceeding in a manner contrary to these GUIDELINES, he or she may rise to a point of order. The delegate so rising will be immediately recognized by the Chair and the point ruled upon. A delegate rising to a point of order may not speak on the substance of any matter under discussion.

Point of Personal Privilege. If a delegate wishes to raise a question or make a request relating to the organization of the meeting, personal comfort, or the conduct of fellow delegates or staff, he/she may rise to a point of personal privilege. When a delegate rises on privilege, the Chair shall take such action as is necessary.

Point of Parliamentary Inquiry. A point of parliamentary inquiry is directed to the Chair for information or guidance on procedure. This point may not interrupt the speaker. It is a question and does not require seconding or allow for debate. Replies by the Chair are not appealable.

Point of Information. If a delegate wishes to obtain a clarification of procedure or a statement of the matter before the committee, the delegate may address a point of information to the Chair. During debate, if a delegate wishes to ask a question of the speaker, a request to question the speaker may be made in the form of a point of information directed to the Chair after the speaker consents to be questioned, all questions and replies are made through the Chair. Delegates shall not interrupt a speaker on a point of information.

_100__ MOTIONS - ORDER OF PROCEDURAL MOTIONS

The motions as indicated in the Short Form of Points and Motions have precedence, in the order given, over all other proposals or motions before the committee.

Adjournment of Debate. During the discussion of any matter, a delegate may move the adjournment of debate on that matter. One delegate may speak in favor of the motion and one opposed. The motion shall then be put to an immediate vote. Adjournment of debate on a resolution or amendment has the effect of tabling that item and moves the committee on to the next order of business. See also 8.9 on Reconsideration.

Closure of Debate. A delegate may move to close debate at any time on any matter. Such a motion closes all substantive debate on the matters before the body at that time, except when such a motion would interrupt a speaker. Two delegates may speak against closure, and the motion will then be put to a vote. During debate on an amendment, a delegate may move for closure of debate on the resolution. if closure passes, then the amendment shall be voted on first followed by the resolution.

Move a Resolution to the Floor. Used to bring an approved resolution to the floor, this motion may not interrupt a speaker and is not debatable. No second is required.

Suspension of the Meeting. During the discussion of any matter, a delegate may move to suspend the meeting. Suspending a meeting recesses it until the time specified in the motion; the Chair may request the mover to modify the time. When the committee reconvenes it will continue with its business from the point at which suspension was moved.

Adjournment of the Meeting. The motion of adjournment means that all business of the committee has been completed, and that the committee win not reconvene until the next Annual Session. The Chair may refuse to recognize a motion to adjourn the meeting if the Committee still has business before it. A motion to adjourn is not debatable, and will be put to an immediate vote.

Decisions of Competence. Any motion calling for a decision on the competence of the Committee to discuss or adopt a proposal shall be put to a vote before the vote is taken on the proposal in question. If a Committee decides it is not competent to discuss or vote on an amendment or resolution, the effect is the same as adjourning debate on the matter. See also 8.9 on Reconsideration.

Withdrawal of Motions. A motion may be withdrawn by its proposer at any time before voting on it has begun, provided the motion has not been amended. A withdrawn motion may be reintroduced by any other delegation.

Reconsideration of Proposals. When a proposal has been adopted, or rejected through a vote of adjournment or "no competence", it may be reconsidered at the same session by an affirmative vote of two-thirds of the members present and voting. The motion to reconsider must be made by a delegation which originally voted on the prevailing side of the proposal; thus, reconsideration may be moved only on the proposals voted on by roll-call.

Division of the Question. A motion to divide the question, proposing that parts of an amendment or resolution be voted on separately, is in order at any time prior to commencement of voting on the amendment or resolution. Motions to divide shall apply only to operative clauses. Permission to speak on the motion shall be granted to one speaker in favor and one opposed, after which there shall be an immediate vote. The first motion for division to receive a majority vote shall become the final manner in which the proposal is presented. Those parts of the proposal which are approved shall be put to a vote as a whole. If all operative clauses of a proposal have been rejected, the proposal as a whole has been rejected.

Dilatory Motions. The Chair may rule as dilatory, and therefore out of order, any motion repeating or closely approximating a substantive measure on which the committee has already rendered an opinion. Such rulings can not be appealed.

Appealing a Decision of the Chair. Rulings of the chair can be appealed unless otherwise specified in these GUIDELINES. Appeals can be debated by one speaker in favor and one opposed.

_103__ VOTING METHODS AND RIGHTS: Each member delegation shall have one vote in each Committee in which it is represented. No delegate may cast a vote on behalf of another member.

_104__ Simple Majority. Unless otherwise specified in these GUIDELINES, decisions in the Committee shall be made by a majority vote of those members present and voting. The phrase "MSPs present and voting" refers to members casting ranked choice votes. Members which cast a final abstention are not voting. If a vote is equally divided between two sums of the same value, the motion fails.

_105__ Method of Voting. The Committee shall use ranked choice voting (RCV). The Chair, however, may grant a request for a roll-call vote; the decision to grant such a request is not appealable. All final votes on resolutions shall be taken by roll-call; the roll shall be called in English alphabetical order beginning with a person selected at random by the Secretary. Delegates shall reply "#1," or "abstain," or "abstain from the order of voting." A member may abstain from the order of voting once during the roll-call; a second abstention from the order of voting will be recorded as an abstention. Rights of explanation are permitted on roll-call votes and may be limited in time by the Chair. At the end of roll-call, but before rights of explanation and the subsequent announcement of the vote, the Secretary will ask for changes of vote. A delegation may not change from "0" to "#1", or "#1 with right of explanation" or from "0" to "0 with right of explanation." Those abstaining may be accorded rights of explanation. The result of the vote shall be inserted into the Committee record.

_106__ ONLINE VOTING: The International Parliament will conduct elections using online voting and all votes will be posted where they can be easily viewed by the public with the information as to who had cast the vote.

_107__ Conduct during Voting. Immediately prior to a vote, the Chair shall describe to the Committee the proposal to be voted on, and shall explain the consequence of a 1 or 0 vote. Voting shall begin upon the chair's declaration and shall end when the results of the vote are announced. Once voting has begun, no delegate shall interrupt the voting except on a point of order or information concerning the actual conduct of the vote, or on a point of personal privilege.

_110__ OPERATIVE CLAUSES are set out to achieve the committee's main policy goals on the topic.
Each operative clause begins with a number and ends with a semicolon (the final clause ends with a period).
Operative clauses should be organized in a logical progression, and each clause should contain a single idea or policy proposal.
Keep in mind that all resolutions except those passed by the simple majority of the executive are non-binding.
As a rule of thumb, good resolutions usually have an equal number or more operative phrases than preambulatory phrases.

_14__ General Counting, Balloting and Eballoting Guidelines for International Parliament Elections

_15__ RANKED VOTING ONLY: All voting and vote counting shall be in the form of ranked paper ballots only (and eballots when practical and verifiable). Consecutive numbers beginning with the #s 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. etc. must always be used when marking on (e)ballot of all alternative decisions or names. Deviation from this guideline will disqualify the ballot, and the ballot will be marked spoiled.

_16__ Pure proportional representation (PR) will be used.

_17__ THE SAINTE-LAGUE PARLIAMENT SYSTEM, Hagenbach-Bischoff method, under ranked choice voting, for seat allocation in all multi-seat districts:

Divide the election's total number of votes by the number of seats. This is the 1st quota.

Divide this quota into each candidate's votes, and round off to the nearest whole number. That's that candidate's seat allocation.

If, due to rounding, this awards a number of seats different from the desired number of seats, then adjust the quota slightly up or down, till, when paragraph two is carried out, it will award all seats.

_18__ Any resident of earth, nominee and/or proxy may observe the counting of the ballots. Volunteer counters will conduct the vote counting.

_19__ Choices marked on "eballots" are posted for public view and are not bound by confidentiality under the behavior of officers of the Parliament.

_20__ EBALLOTS are ballots cast via email and must be emailed to vvc at allpartysystem dot org, a private email address used by the secretary and observers for receiving such eballots. No reply email will be sent to voters who cast eballots other than a verification message, unless the voter indicates that he/she wishes to be self appointed to the www.international-parliament.org site, or when a question regarding verification or validation is raised by a volunteer vote counter.

_21__ Volunteer vote counters may be added to the exploder email address vvc at allpartysystem dot org as a subscriber by sending the message "subscribe" to vvc at allpartysystem dot org.

_22__ Telephone voting is permissible, acceptable and verification and validations will be provided when requested.

_23__ Elections of rules shall be perpetual and the simple majority vote, by elected MIPs who vote on rules, passes rules.

_24__ BALLOTS AND EBALLOTS: All world residents are eligible to vote in International Parliament Elections 365 days year.

_25__ There will be fifty member of International Parliament (MIPs) who
are elected members self appointed/self nominated for free under ranked
choice voting as one 50-member at-large district to be known as "MIPs"
and fifty members who are donors ranked in order of donation level and
are to be known as "Donor MIPs".

_26__ THE PARTY LEADER within the International Parliament is a label for the highest ranked name categorized under each party. Party leaders are responsible for the distribution of all ballots and rules to the members of their party/category and lists.

_27__ Such ballots may be retype set or altered to specifically identify their select nominees' correct name and party affiliation. All ballots released to public use by the International Parliament's elected secretaries shall count as a legitimate ballot and shall be presumed to represent the correct and most current candidate name information.

_28__ BALLOT: ORDER OF NOMINEES of all names in the parliament elections and subsidiary parliament elections will be determined by the results caused by the voters' ranking of the nominees on the previous election's ballots. This is known as the correct consecutive order of nominee.

_29__ NOMINEE ACCEPTANCE AND WRITE-INS: Only names who formally ACCEPT the nomination of their name, self write-in names and those currently already elected will qualify for the ballot/eballot for the International Parliament. There will be a cap at 100 names for the ballot/eballot.

_30__ A verifiable name and contact information must be provided in order to qualify as a nominee for the (e)ballot.

_31__ The final order of the parties/categories on the final prepared ballot will be determined by the nominees' party name/category and the parties/categories and will be listed on the ballot in alphabetical order.

_32__ TIES: Ties will be broken by holding a runoff election only when called by one of the two secretaries. In all other cases, all the names/items in a tie will be included in the results and will be in a new "tied" category, even if the size of the assembly or agenda list must be expanded beyond normal size set forth by these rules.

_33__ ONLY ONE SINGLE PARLIAMENTARY BALLOT, IS PERMITTED TO BE MARKED BY EACH WORLD RESIDENT: All living world citizens may vote one time and only one time. In cases where a second ballot (or more) is cast, only the latter of the ballots will be counted, the former will be marked spoiled and regarded disqualified.

_34__ EBALLOTS are posted for public view and are not bound by confidentiality under the behavior of officers of the Parliament.

_35__ The International Parliament will not ever hold any election in a single winner district where a single winner decision or name is elected.

_36__ Ballot Preparation

_37__ SPACE FOR THREE OR MORE WRITE-IN choices must be provided on each and every ballot, in all elections.

_38__ CATEGORIZATION AND PARTY NAMES The first and most important criterion in determining the nominee's party/category is the nominee's most recently requested or declared party/category in Parliament matters. The second most important criterion in determining the nominee's party/category is determined by the nominee's state's records, as written by the member while registering to vote. Appointed members may be categorized with any party/category that they wish, and the party/category of all members is considered to be the true one. Elected members may decide to change or switch their party/categorization at any time by proclamation. Members automatically qualify for the ballot in the next election cycle under the party/category of their choice.

_39__ First and last names are preferred, however all names nominated will be permitted on the ballot as well as the party/category of the nominee. If party/category is not known, the label "[Info. Not Avail.]" will be used. A nominee's name (and thus identity) may appear on the ballot only once, so fusion voting is not allowed. Other than the "automatic nominations", all new nominees within each party /category will qualify for the ballot, to be ranked below all other names on the prepared ballot. The order of these names will be determined first based on the rankings of "nomination ballots", and secondly by chronological order of the dates that the nominee's name was received.

_40__ Donor MIPs are not elected during regular election cycles of the parliament's elections but they receive all same voting rights plus special donor privileges which apply to the donation level of which the donor has achieved.

_41__ RESIGNATIONS. When any elected member, executive or minister, stands down, resigns, retires, or dies - the name is deleted. Then the next highest ranked name is automatically elected to the seat.

_42__ When a candidate who has chosen to stand down but then wishes to return to the position which they had departed, then they must first be re-affirmed by all the voters who had previously cast a vote for them.

_43__ TEN EXECUTIVES

_44__ MIPs: Once elected, all new Members of International Parliament (MIPs) may change their vote as a "vote of confidence" for the ten executives into perpetuity.

_45__ THE VOICE of the International Parliament will be the ten executives.

_46__ Each of the elected ten executives may pick a seat title once elected.

__47_ The ten executives elect up to sixty full Cabinet Ministers using the "parliamentary go-ahead".

_48__ The International Parliament's ten executives agree to rank all names nominated by each of the other nine executives, thus guaranteeing that each of the ten executives elects 1/10th of the 60 cabinet ministers.

_49__ THE TEN EXECUTIVES recruits as many people as possible who will work in the Cabinet to run the efforts, elects the planks and run the parliament's efforts free from political conflict or bias. The executives do not control who gets elected to the general assembly.

_50__ The ten executives of the International Parliament (IP) will serve as "Founding Executives" on the unity business entity named All Party System Co., International Bureau, which is established in order to report all unifying news, business, financial matters, vote counting and results of vote counting of the IP to the public.

_55__ HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES MINISTRY: The book "Know Thyself, Your Body's Wisdom for Living Consciously" will be added as a guide to the proposed Health and Human Services Ministry web page. For many ages, humanity has been confused about what decisions regenerate and degenerate our living systems. The Body itself has always held this wisdom of natural laws for our organ/gland functioning on 253 circuits of personal powers (but not always available until infrared could shine the light on it). The Body's own immense wisdom can show us how our next decision degenerates us or regenerates us (based on 40 years of scientific research using infrared technology that can be tracked, measured and decoded by the Language of the Body itself). This Self Evident and undeniable truth from our energetic design makes it an unparalleled guide to help humans make decisions (about voting, laws, or new customs, etc.) that can regenerate us from within as well as from without. (http://www.consciousnesssystems.com [1] to read the book). Also, VOLUNTARY LAW: The blog site http://vlda.org/, the Voluntary Law Development Association, owned by Jonathan Jaech will be added to the proposed

_56__ VOLUNTARY LAW MINISTRY: The Voluntary Law Ministry web page and can accompany 'Know Thyself, Your Body's Wisdom for Living Consciously' (that can both be used as the foundational principles for voluntary international law). These 2 sources of wisdom can promote peace, love and the clarity of energetic truth for successful ways to promote each living systems' regeneration.
The blog site http://vlda.org/, the Voluntary Law Development Association, owned by Jonathan Jaech will be added to the proposed VOTE COUNTING AND VOLUNTARY LAW MINISTRY web page and will be used as the foundation for voluntary international law.

_57__ VOTE COUNTING MINISTRY: The Vote Counting Ministry will make an annual award for the "United Coalition Secure Paper Ballot Award".

_58__ TREASURY MINISTRY: The Treasury Minister of the International Parliament will be accountable only to the five executives of the International Parliament through a vote of confidence. The Treasury Ministry is where specific records and agreements are posted for the public. The Treasury Ministry will maintain all records for Donor MIPs and other financial records such as revenue inflow, donor rankings, savings and expenditures.

_59__ MEDIATION AND CONCELIATION MINISTRY: Appeals of a name's removal action may be taken to the Mediation and Conciliation Service Minister where rules for such appeals will be written, voted upon and approved.
Should any financial compensation be asked for or awarded after an appeal had been heard and a ruling had been finalized by the International national Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service Minister which is charged with recommending such financial compensation, then the case can be taken to the All Party System Co.'s International Bureau's Ethics & Grievances Committee of Four where a determination of the exact amount can be made and executed.

_60__ Donor MIPs

_61__ Once the donation/contribution is received, the donors' funds will be deposited into a bank account which is controlled by the ten executives of the International Parliament.

_62__ Donors: New seats will be made available in a donor section of the International Parliament's members of national parliament. All donors, who contribute money to the political entity International Parliament at the minimum donation price, will promptly and automatically become a "donor member of international parliament (Donor MIP)", and they will be members with all voting rights on any geographical level or region that they pick and may be moved from time to time upon request.

_63__ The donor fee is a one-time membership fee which will be tied to the exact cost of one unit of common stock in the parliament's All Party System Co.'s International Bureau, the same exact price of the purchase price of the share at the time the donation is accepted. This donation level does not represent a purchase of any stocks.

_64__ The donation will be recorded and should the "Donor MIP" wish to "stand down", then the donation amount will be not be refunded.

_65__ The numbers of seats for donor members shall never be more than the number of free elected members in the national assembly, political party, or other entity in the International Parliament.

_66__ Once the numbers of members in the international parliament reach saturation point and no seats are available for donors, then new donors with the lowest donation level (or the chronologically newer or more recent membership in cases of ties) will automatically spill over to a lower geographical region or they may request to have their name moved to a different geographical level.

_67__ Should a Donor MP/BoD/political entity who had been elected to a free seat, then be unelected and their name is no longer an elected free member, then their name will be automatically reinstated as a Donor MIP, BoD or committee member if their donation remained on the parliament's records.

_68__ All donor members shall have access to all financial records for the International Parliament. More detailed information which isn't available on the Treasury Ministry's web page will be made available to Donor MIPs when a request is made to the Treasury Minister.

_69__ The donation cost and payment method for the Donor Members will be the same cost and method for all geographical levels and regions in the International. All payments are to be in US dollars only.

_72__ The International Parliament's subsidiary Republic "Unity Coalition" elections shall be in two phases; one before the country's primaries and one after the country's primaries. That way, a strong emphasis can be placed on official state-recognized ballot-qualified and write-in candidates both before the primaries and after the primaries, and the dates are customized for each of the country's official primaries.

_73__ UNITY PLATFORM

_74__ Conduct an international Direct Democracy (DD) election which will elect planks to a "Unity Platform".

_75__ The promotion of the Unity Coalition's "Unity Platform" can used used as an example of teamwork. The team can be promoted as being dynamic so that every item is up for a continual "vote of confidence" by all the members, all the time. That way, the recruitment of new members can take place in order to collect more votes for improving the planks on the Unity Platform.

_76__ PLANKS OF THE PLATFORM: The ten elected executives shall elect the UNITY PLATFORM with a series of "planks" from all the items they pick and rank from the DD election.

_77__ Guideline of Priority and Procedure

_78__ GENERAL PROVISIONS: Guideline of Priority and Procedure. The GUIDELINES contained on this web page shall be the official first GUIDELINES of procedure for the International Parliament and will be used for all transactions of business once ratified by a majority of the Members of Parliament (MPs). These GUIDELINES will take precedence over any other set of GUIDELINES.

_79__ GUIDELINE CHANGES: The Executive Committee reserves the right to make changes in these GUIDELINES by 6/10th vote and to present these changes to the delegates/members at any time.

_83__ MEMBERS: Number of Accredited Delegates. The number of delegates allowed on any delegation of the Parliament shall be limited to MIPs and Donor MIPs only.

_84__ DIPLOMATIC COURTESY: All delegates MUST accord all other delegates diplomatic courtesy at all times.

_88__ PRIOR APPROVED RESOLUTIONS: Order of Consideration of Prior-Approved Resolutions. Prior-approved resolutions are resolutions that were received by the specified deadline and were deemed appropriate by the staff. They will receive priority over other resolutions. The order of appearance of resolutions before the Committee is determined by the date in which they were received, and is listed under the appropriate committee topic in that order in the resolution book by the Secretary. When the Chair opens debate on any agenda item, any delegate may move for consideration of an approved resolution on the agenda item that has been submitted to the chair with signatories of 1/8 of the delegations present. If the motion is seconded, the Chair will direct the committee to an immediate vote without debate on the motion, a majority being required for consideration. If no resolution receives a majority vote in favor of consideration, the Committee will automatically have before it for consideration the first resolution in the resolution book under that agenda item that has been received by the chair with the appropriate number of signatories.

_89__ CONSIDERATION OF RESOLUTIONS WITHOUT PRIOR APPROVAL: Resolutions that were not received by the specified deadline may still be considered, but not until 1/2 of the prior approved resolutions on the agenda item have been considered.

Secondary amendments and amendments by substitution are not acceptable. Obvious typographical efforts will be brought to the Committee's attention and collected by the Chair with no vote required. To move an amendment to the floor, recognition by the Chair and introduction of the amendment will suffice; no vote shall be required. Once an amendment has been brought to the floor, the Committee shall consider only the amendments and not the Resolutions until final action on the amendment has been taken (except to the extent that the amendment pertains to the Resolution).

_93__ Definition of Amendment and Voting on Amendments. An amendment is a motion that adds to, deletes from, or revises any part of a resolution. A series of alterations proposed by a single delegation to the same resolution shall be considered as a single amendment unless a motion is made to divide it.

__94_ Closure of Debate. A delegate may move to close debate at any time on any matter. Such a motion closes all substantive debate on the matters before the body at that time, except when such a motion would interrupt a speaker. Two delegates may speak against closure, and the motion will then be put to a vote. During debate on an amendment, a delegate may move for closure of debate on the resolution. If closure passes, then the amendment shall be voted on first followed by the resolution.

_95__ Move a Resolution to the Floor. Used to bring an approved resolution to the floor, this motion may not interrupt a speaker and is not debatable. No second is required.

_96__ DEBATE AND SPEECH GUIDELINES: Speeches. No delegate may address the committee without having previously obtained the permission of the Chair. The Chair shall call upon speakers in the order in which they signify their desire to speak. Delegates may not interrupt a speaker except on a point of order or point of personal privilege. Abusing these rights may be considered violations of diplomatic courtesy, and can result in disciplinary action taken by the chair. Motions should be made at the conclusion of the speaker's remarks; by making a motion, the speaker yields the floor.

_97__ Time Limit on Debate. The committee or the Chair may limit or extend the time allotted to each speaker and the number of times each delegate may speak on a proposal. There may be one speaker in favor and one opposed to the limitation/extension.

_98__ Right of Reply. During debate, the Chair may accord the right of reply to any delegate if a speech by another delegate contains unusual or extraordinary language clearly insulting to personal or national dignity. The decision granting a right of reply may not be appealed. Requests for a right of reply shall be in writing to the Chair. The Chair will limit the time for the reply. There shall be no reply to a reply.

_99__ POINTS - IN ORDER OF PRIORITY

Point of Order. If, during the discussion of any matter, a delegate believes that the committee is proceeding in a manner contrary to these GUIDELINES, he or she may rise to a point of order. The delegate so rising will be immediately recognized by the Chair and the point ruled upon. A delegate rising to a point of order may not speak on the substance of any matter under discussion.

Point of Personal Privilege. If a delegate wishes to raise a question or make a request relating to the organization of the meeting, personal comfort, or the conduct of fellow delegates or staff, he/she may rise to a point of personal privilege. When a delegate rises on privilege, the Chair shall take such action as is necessary.

Point of Parliamentary Inquiry. A point of parliamentary inquiry is directed to the Chair for information or guidance on procedure. This point may not interrupt the speaker. It is a question and does not require seconding or allow for debate. Replies by the Chair are not appealable.

Point of Information. If a delegate wishes to obtain a clarification of procedure or a statement of the matter before the committee, the delegate may address a point of information to the Chair. During debate, if a delegate wishes to ask a question of the speaker, a request to question the speaker may be made in the form of a point of information directed to the Chair after the speaker consents to be questioned, all questions and replies are made through the Chair. Delegates shall not interrupt a speaker on a point of information.

_100__ MOTIONS - ORDER OF PROCEDURAL MOTIONS

The motions as indicated in the Short Form of Points and Motions have precedence, in the order given, over all other proposals or motions before the committee.

Adjournment of Debate. During the discussion of any matter, a delegate may move the adjournment of debate on that matter. One delegate may speak in favor of the motion and one opposed. The motion shall then be put to an immediate vote. Adjournment of debate on a resolution or amendment has the effect of tabling that item and moves the committee on to the next order of business. See also 8.9 on Reconsideration.

Closure of Debate. A delegate may move to close debate at any time on any matter. Such a motion closes all substantive debate on the matters before the body at that time, except when such a motion would interrupt a speaker. Two delegates may speak against closure, and the motion will then be put to a vote. During debate on an amendment, a delegate may move for closure of debate on the resolution. if closure passes, then the amendment shall be voted on first followed by the resolution.

Move a Resolution to the Floor. Used to bring an approved resolution to the floor, this motion may not interrupt a speaker and is not debatable. No second is required.

Suspension of the Meeting. During the discussion of any matter, a delegate may move to suspend the meeting. Suspending a meeting recesses it until the time specified in the motion; the Chair may request the mover to modify the time. When the committee reconvenes it will continue with its business from the point at which suspension was moved.

Adjournment of the Meeting. The motion of adjournment means that all business of the committee has been completed, and that the committee win not reconvene until the next Annual Session. The Chair may refuse to recognize a motion to adjourn the meeting if the Committee still has business before it. A motion to adjourn is not debatable, and will be put to an immediate vote.

Decisions of Competence. Any motion calling for a decision on the competence of the Committee to discuss or adopt a proposal shall be put to a vote before the vote is taken on the proposal in question. If a Committee decides it is not competent to discuss or vote on an amendment or resolution, the effect is the same as adjourning debate on the matter. See also 8.9 on Reconsideration.

Withdrawal of Motions. A motion may be withdrawn by its proposer at any time before voting on it has begun, provided the motion has not been amended. A withdrawn motion may be reintroduced by any other delegation.

Reconsideration of Proposals. When a proposal has been adopted, or rejected through a vote of adjournment or "no competence", it may be reconsidered at the same session by an affirmative vote of two-thirds of the members present and voting. The motion to reconsider must be made by a delegation which originally voted on the prevailing side of the proposal; thus, reconsideration may be moved only on the proposals voted on by roll-call.

Division of the Question. A motion to divide the question, proposing that parts of an amendment or resolution be voted on separately, is in order at any time prior to commencement of voting on the amendment or resolution. Motions to divide shall apply only to operative clauses. Permission to speak on the motion shall be granted to one speaker in favor and one opposed, after which there shall be an immediate vote. The first motion for division to receive a majority vote shall become the final manner in which the proposal is presented. Those parts of the proposal which are approved shall be put to a vote as a whole. If all operative clauses of a proposal have been rejected, the proposal as a whole has been rejected.

Dilatory Motions. The Chair may rule as dilatory, and therefore out of order, any motion repeating or closely approximating a substantive measure on which the committee has already rendered an opinion. Such rulings can not be appealed.

Appealing a Decision of the Chair. Rulings of the chair can be appealed unless otherwise specified in these GUIDELINES. Appeals can be debated by one speaker in favor and one opposed.

_103__ VOTING METHODS AND RIGHTS: Each member delegation shall have one vote in each Committee in which it is represented. No delegate may cast a vote on behalf of another member.

_104__ Simple Majority. Unless otherwise specified in these GUIDELINES, decisions in the Committee shall be made by a majority vote of those members present and voting. The phrase "MSPs present and voting" refers to members casting ranked choice votes. Members which cast a final abstention are not voting. If a vote is equally divided between two sums of the same value, the motion fails.

_105__ Method of Voting. The Committee shall use ranked choice voting (RCV). The Chair, however, may grant a request for a roll-call vote; the decision to grant such a request is not appealable. All final votes on resolutions shall be taken by roll-call; the roll shall be called in English alphabetical order beginning with a person selected at random by the Secretary. Delegates shall reply "#1," or "abstain," or "abstain from the order of voting." A member may abstain from the order of voting once during the roll-call; a second abstention from the order of voting will be recorded as an abstention. Rights of explanation are permitted on roll-call votes and may be limited in time by the Chair. At the end of roll-call, but before rights of explanation and the subsequent announcement of the vote, the Secretary will ask for changes of vote. A delegation may not change from "0" to "#1", or "#1 with right of explanation" or from "0" to "0 with right of explanation." Those abstaining may be accorded rights of explanation. The result of the vote shall be inserted into the Committee record.

_106__ ONLINE VOTING: The International Parliament will conduct elections using online voting and all votes will be posted where they can be easily viewed by the public with the information as to who had cast the vote.

_107__ Conduct during Voting. Immediately prior to a vote, the Chair shall describe to the Committee the proposal to be voted on, and shall explain the consequence of a 1 or 0 vote. Voting shall begin upon the chair's declaration and shall end when the results of the vote are announced. Once voting has begun, no delegate shall interrupt the voting except on a point of order or information concerning the actual conduct of the vote, or on a point of personal privilege.

_110__ OPERATIVE CLAUSES are set out to achieve the committee's main policy goals on the topic.
Each operative clause begins with a number and ends with a semicolon (the final clause ends with a period).
Operative clauses should be organized in a logical progression, and each clause should contain a single idea or policy proposal.
