Proposal: The Party can always find you.

Timed out 3 votes to 1. EVC clause failed to trigger with less than a quorum supporting. Enacted by Kevan.

Enact a new dynastic rule named “Party Lines”, with the following text:

Each Councillor is part of one of the four Parties, and this is tracked in the GNDT.

If a Councillor is part of no Party, then they may join any Party by updating the GNDT to this effect.

While a Party is In Power, all Councillors that are part of that party are said to be In Control.

If a Councillor represents a Constituency and that Constituency Supports the Party the Councillor is part of, that Councillor is said to be Popular.

If the Proposal “Staff Track” passed and a number of EVC’s on this proposal equaling or exceeding Quorum include the word “Staff”, add the following paragraph to the end of the rule “Party Lines”:

If a Councillor becomes Popular, their Staff increases by 1; if a Popular Councillor ceases to be Popular, their Staff decreases by 1. Staff loss by means of this rule cannot cause a Councillor to have fewer than three Staff.

for And “Staff”, although this mechanic seems a bit detached from Surveys. I’ll get some duct tape out.

against Staff. Hard to articulate why, but I oppose the idea that we represent parties in addition to districts. Maybe I have been conceptualizing a “Councillor” as an interchangeable series of representatives rather than a single person.
