This is a great idea and the Duxburian Union stands behind it. Although, perhaps there should be less of a debate and more of a question time format, since neither Justice nor Speaker are intended to be partisan positions.Wesley GreeneIntern of the Duxburian Union

The Speech of His Honourable Ken Frobisher had reached the Rosebourg Royal Court and had prompted some reflection within the European capital's policy makers. Rosebourg's elite, perhaps more than their own population, wanted to see a strong Europe capable of defending its interests, and led towards an ever closer union within its territories. The days of small European states being able to push their way around the World and capable of imposing their worldviews had long been ended. Rosebourg knew this intimately and had its full intentions of protecting its interests through the region's own. Josephine Charlotte de Riviere glanced at her diplomatic brief outlining the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs' perspectives. The issue of sovereignty has always informed and inflamed the borders of the European continent and Rosebourg like the other Member States had suffered through the centuries in bloody wars that had cost many young men's lives. Rosebourg's ambitions to see a long-lasting peace that enabled all of its constituent parts to grow and benefit from that Peace was a paramount mission entrusted to her and her team. The Rosebourg ambition to play a strong role in supporting efforts to achieve greater European integration would now have to play its full parts in proposed debates. "The proposals of Councillor Stuart, and indeed His Honourable Ken Frobisher are absolutely worth considering in line of the challenges faced by the European Union. We believe it always wise to consider how to improve what exists today and to look towards the future with optimism and promise. Our Government is of the opinion that a discussion over sovereignty must also invariably consider the question of subsidiarity to ensure that our Citizens are served best by the Governance level most suitable to address the challenge that they face. A Member State must be loyal to the Cause of our great region, and the Region in turn must be loyal to the Member State and protect Citizens' right to self-determination. But can such a vision be discussed in the confines of a single Article of the Constitution remains to be seen."
@Northern-Norway said:On behalf of the Parliamentary Monarchy of Northern Norway, i vote FOR this amendment.((OOC: This is a vote that happened a month ago, you really shouldn't post on it. I'm sure someone will come around and lock this or something later))
I have been advised that voting on this ended at 14:00GMT today. I will therefore read the results on behalf of the speaker and the bill proposer who are both absent. Votes FOR 2 Votes AGAINST 4I can therefore declare that this proposed amendment did not reach the required majority and did not pass.
"With 4 votes in favour, 6 opposed and 2 abstentions, the Councillor Accountability and Democracy Act II is therefore defeated."The Speaker pressed one of his myriad of buttons underneath his desk, and the sound of the contemporary European classic "Everybody Dance Now" flew out of the Council's sound system. Joints were lit across the Council chamber, with Councillor Devoy getting particularly animated as the official Council Disco Ball was lowered from the ceiling. ((OOC: I was peer pressured lol))Speaker John Walters
