Constitutional Amendment - The Term of the Chancellor

Post by Tor Karlsvalt »

The Term of the Chancellor

The Powers Commission recommends that we bring the Constitution re the terms of office the Chancellor and the RA into alignment.

Article I Section 2 of the Constitution reads "The Representative Assembly shall serve for a term of six months. New RAs shall take office on 1 December* and 1 June."
Article II Section 5.2 reads The Chancellor will serve a term ending with the election of the next Chancellor."

Recommend that the Constitution, Article II Section 5.2 be amended to read “Chancellor terms begin on June 1 and December 1, concurrent with the term of the RA.”

Given the current state of affairs in the CDS, that the Chancellor has resigned before the end of the Term yet too late in the Term to hold a by-election, I recommend that this Amendment to the Constitution include the following addition. “If the Chancellor resigns later than the beginning of the Period of Declaration for Chancellor for the upcoming Term and there is no by-election, the next Chancellor shall take office immediately upon election."

The entire Constitutional Amendment would read:
Chancellor terms begin on June 1 and December 1, concurrent with the term of the RA. In the event of a bi-election, the Chancellor takes office immediately upon election. If the Chancellor resigns later than the beginning of the Period of Declaration for Chancellor for the upcoming Term and there is no by-election, the next Chancellor shall take office immediately upon election.
