Legislative overview[edit]

History[edit]

  • The House of Councillors and Imperial Council were formed in 2776 to replace the Imperial Chancellery, an ancient institution which was a vast network of bureaucratic agencies that acted as the nations government.
  • The Imperial Reformation Decree enshrined the rights of the Parliament and would be the source of parliamentary precedent. Regional powers which had been originally held by the Paramount Lords were restricted and turned to the the central government.

Imperial Chancellery[edit]

Legislative functions[edit]

Debate procedure[edit]

  • The Imperial Steward of the House is the presiding officer of the House and is assisted by the

Bills and passage of law[edit]

  • A draft piece of legislation is called a bill. The formal name in the Imperial Council is an 'imperial proposition' but this name is rarely used. There are a number of ways of organising bills:
    • Government bills: These are bills introduced in the House by members of government. Bills introduced by the Imperial Council are also called government bills.
    • Private members bills: These are bills introduced in the House by backbenchers or the opposition bench.
    • Bills can be further divided into public, private or specialized bills. Public bills affect the entire nation, they are often called federal bills. Private bills affect a specific corporations, individuals or groups. Specialized bills are similar to public bills but they affect a specific area of Eroea – they are not considered private bills and are often used to override decisions made by provincial legislatures.
  • If a government has a majority and they are able to ensure that all members obey the whip, it is common for all government bills to pass. A bill failing does not automatically lead to the government collapsing but does lead to internal review by the Imperial Council. This internal review is part of the oversight powers of the Council; they are to advise the Monarch on the stability of government and whether they should recommend a parliamentary election.
    • In the case of a Finance Bill failing to pass, this is considered synonymous with a motion of no confidence. Technically, the Lord Councillor could get the Monarch to approve the changes without parliamentary approval and this has often happened, especially in times of economic crisis.
  • Both the Imperial Council and the House can introduce laws. The Imperial Council also has the added benefit of being able to issue imperial decrees in the Monarchs name.
  • Both houses must seek the approval of one another on laws. Imperial decrees do not require consent of the lower house and can only be repealed by another imperial decree, issued by the Monarch personally or the council itself.
  • A joint sitting of Parliament is called a Royal Convention. It usually occurs once every year to open a new legislative session. It is presided over by the Adjudicator of Parliament, who is always the reigning Monarch. In the cases of where the Monarch cannot attend, the Imperial Council nominate a member of the noble houses or imperial family to preside.
    • A royal convention can also be called to address important issues of constitutional law and items that will be of significant influence on Eroean life.
  • Government bills are the only bills that are rarely passed over the Imperial Council. Private member bills are always passed to the Imperial Council for consideration. Only the Monarch can fast track a bill through the Imperial Council
  • Legislation usually passes through the following stages:
    • An imperial proposition: This is a proposition submitted to the Office of Parliamentary Administration, it has a general detail and is posted in the OPA office for all members to see.
    • Introduction: For an imperial proposition to be officially declared a bill, it must be read for a first time. To get a bill read, it must be allotted time by the Imperial Steward and the OPA. Time for government bills are decided by the Custodian of the House and the Imperial Cabinet. Usually, the OPA gives private members bills time on a first-come-first served basis but the Business Statement can be modified to move bills forward or postpone them, though this rarely happens.
      • First reading: This is simply a formality, where the bill is requested to be brought forward. The bill is then presented to the House, made public. This introduction usually entails reading of the full title by the proposer in parliament and a short speech on the bill, its changes and possible effects.
    • Second reading: This is where the core principles are debated; amendments can be put forward here but are not voted on, they are simple taken into consideration for committee stage. Once the second reading is finished, the bill is voted on and if it passes, it moves to committee stage. If it does not pass, the bills it thrown out.
    • Committee stage:
      • Committee of the whole: This is where the bill is presented in front of the entire house for committee stage and it is scrutinized clause by clause.
      • Select committee: This is sub-committee made up of a number of different members.
      • In essence, the committee produces are report for the review stage. They recommend which amendments should be added, which should not be, however, it is up to the review stage to decide this.
    • Review stage: This is where the bill is presented in front of the house with a report by the committee. Each amendment, regardless if it is supported or not supported by the committee report is debated. There are strict rules during this stage due to the fact that some bills can have a vast array of amendments.
    • Imperial overview: This is where the bill is reviewed by the Imperial Council and their amendments are made. If they make any amendments, the bill is returned to the review stage for councillors to vote on the bill again. If none are made and the Imperial Council are happy with the bill, the bill is then sent to the final stage. Imperial overview is the only stage of legislation in the Imperial Council; this is due to the council internally deciding their meeting times and deciding which legislation they wish to approve.
    • Final stage: This is where the bill is presented in its final format and members are afforded time to debate the bill in full. Once the bill has been discussed by those who wish to speak, a division is called and the bill is passed/rejected accordingly.
    • Imperial assent: If the bill passes, it is then signed into law by the Lord Chamberlain on behalf of the Sovereign, or by the Imperial Steward, Deputy Lord Chamberlain and one other member of the Imperial Council on the Sovereign's behalf if the Lord Chamberlain is unavailable.
  • The following enacting formulas are used:
    • Bills passed by both houses: Be it enacted by Their Imperial Majesty upon advice of The Most Loyal Imperial Council and Most Humble House of Councillors as follows:
    • Bills passed by the House of Councillors without Imperial Council consent: Be it enacted by Their Imperial Majesty upon their own supreme counsel, with most gracious advice by the Most Humble House of Councillors as follows:
    • Imperial decrees: Be it enacted by Their Imperial Majesty upon their own divine counsel, an edict of the imperial realm follows:
    • Finance acts: Be it enacted and funds appropriated by Their Imperial Majesty upon advice of her Most Loyal Treasurers and Members of the Imperial Council and by amendment of the Most Humble House of Councillors under the leadership of The Most Noble Servant of the Crown The Lord Councillor as follows:
  • Legislative time allotments:
    • Normal sittings (Monday, Tuesday and Sunday)
      • 3 hours each day is allotted to discussion of government business.
      • 2 hours each day is allotted to the discussion of private members bills.
      • 2 hours each day is allotted to adjournment debates automatically, more time can be granted however.
    • Government sittings (Wednesday and Friday)
      • Wednesday:
        • 1 hour is dedicated to the reading of the Business Statement and proposed amendments to. The Business Statement outlines what the government plans to discuss in its allotted time over the next week; the business statement is a statutory instrument under the Parliamentary Procedure Act which allows for the modification of the upcoming parliamentary timetable. This can often be used by backbenchers to allow more time for adjournment or private member debates.
        • 4 hours is allotted to government business.
      • Friday:
        • 1.5 hours is allotted to Humble Questions.
        • 6 hours is allotted to government business.
      • Other days (Thursday and Saturday):
        • Thursday:
          • Parliament does not normally convene except for the last Thursday in each month. On this date, the entire day is devoted to discussing private members bills. It is important for whips to read OPA schedules to ensure that bills that may be contrary to the government agenda are not passed. Debate usually lasts for 6 hours and the last 2 hours are devoted to what is known as 'stacked voting sessions', whereby all the motions of the day are voted on one by one. This is often when the House is at its maximum capacity as all members are present to cast their votes.
        • Saturday:
          • Parliament sits on Saturday for 3 hours and is an adjournment debate; councillors vote every Wednesday after the Business Statement on whether a Saturday sitting is necessary. This vote is not critical as no legislation is ever passed on Saturdays under normal circumstances.
          • If there is a bill during the week deferred to a committee of the whole, it takes place on a Saturday.
          • This is the only day where the Imperial Steward does not preside over any sitting of the House. The role is taken on by a Deputy.

Styling[edit]

Royal styles[edit]

  • Sir – Anyone who has been conferred an imperial honor is offered to use the honorific prefix of 'Sir'.
  • The Right Honourable – This is used for members of Parliament who do not have any superior title. Also used for baronets.
  • Lord – Used for earls, viscounts, marquesses and high lords.
  • Excellency – Used for senior government positions such as Lord Councillor and Viceroy.
  • Serene Highness – Used for Lord Primates and Dukes.

History and chronology[edit]

The timeline and the history of Eroea pages are the conclusive collection of Eroean history. They cannot contradict other pages, they can only be contradicted. If another article states something contrary to the history page or timeline, then that statement is considered void and should be rectified. In the case of the history of Eroea page being irrelevant or not pertaining to that point in history, the history section of the main Eroea page is the main deciding factor for history.

Page titles[edit]

Elections[edit]

Most election pages should be titled '[Year] Eroean [election type] election'. The nation identifier, 'Eroean', should be included if the election is national. If the election is regional, it should include the regions name. If the election is confined to an organization or entity, it should include the entity name. For example:

  • 4109 Eroean parliamentary election
  • 4101 Royal Democratic Party [of Eroea/(Eroea)] leadership election
    • 'of Eroea/(Eroea)' does not need to be involved from the get go. It should only be used if the entity name is ambigious. For example, instead of '4101 Conservative Party leadership election', it should be '4101 Conservative Party of Eroea/(Eroea) leadership election'

Gerald Yalan National Eroean Alliance (RDP-CNP) Amadeus II Gerald Yalan, Lord Paramount of Farah'n, is often cited as one of the greatest Lord Councillors in history. A longtime member of the Conservative Noble Party, he built a strategic alliance with the Royal Democratic Party to counteract the Eukatosian Secession War. His leadership and eloquence ultimately led to boosting morale across the country. His economic policies brought about prosperity, however, his social policies lacked the enthusiasm of forwardness that had been a staple of previous administrations. His new party survived only as long as his premiership, and he formed the largest government in the history of the state.
Josiah Mahon Royal Democratic Party 30 September 4134 13 February 4136 The tenure of Josiah Mahon was one of failure, ultimately due to the Eukatosian Secession War, which his government was unable to avoid. The war, stoked by far-right insurgencies in Eukatosia, caused the biggest internal shift in the Eroean political sphere in generations. Ultimately, he was forced to resign in early 4136 and call a parliamentary election on the issue.

4016

Smith, who was now 76 and had been leader of the Commoners Party since 3983, aimed to put the party into power before his retirement which he aimed to have completed by 4020. By 4016, the general populace longed for a change in government and the Chandler premiership, which had been relatively successful over the years, had been in power for 24 years and were slowly losing their voter share as their mandate shrunk.

Chandler called an election in 4016, stepping down from all government positions and retiring from politics simultaneously. The Conservative Noble Party, which was in disarray because of disputes among House Wester about leadership of the party. Smith led a campaign to profit of this turbulence and also campaigned of continuing economic prosperity and progressing civil liberties within the country.

The election led to a hung parliament, the first in 30 years. Smith formed a minority government, going into a confidence and supply agreement with the RDP. This collapsed in 4018 with the Eroean Imperial Budget for 4019, which aimed to modify tax benefits for landowners. The confidence and supply agreement was re-secured after the 4018 election, with the RDP losing seats and the Commoners Party making significant gains but not enough for a majority. The government was dissolved again in 4020 due to the Energy Nationalization Act by a bi-partisan alliance of Conservative Nobles and a number RDP defections. Smith won the subsequent 4020 election with a significant majority and he went on to win the subsequent 4024 election. He died in 4029, which triggered a leadership election within his own party but due to internal conflict, the government collapsed and the RDP were returned to power after 18 years out of power.

There was a gap of 16 years between the 3992 election and the 4008 election due to the Colonial Disturbance which lasted from 3992 until 4008.
Alexander Hermang A father to Arthur Hermang, he served as Lord Councillor from 3990 until 3992. He was ousted in 3992 due to poor colonial relations and revolt within his own party. However, his premiership was marked by the most socially liberal policies until the appointment of Joseph Xao in 4102. The introduction of the Civil Partnership Adoption Act and the Special Case Abortion Act redefined Eroean law in terms of adoption of children in civil partnerships and also gave leeway for abortion to be utilized in specific cases as specified by the act.

Hermang was able to form a minority government between his party and the Commoners Party in the 3986 election, but this collapsed a year later with the resignation of all Commoner cabinet members and the loss of their support in Parliament. This action led to the 3987 election to be triggered in January of that year. The election backfired on the Commoners Party and would lead to a temporary collapse in their voter base until 4016; the Royal Democrats then formed a majority government . Hermang served a full term but was ousted towards the 3992 parliamentary election by his own party.

The election of Nelson Varies as Lord Councillor was not a shock to many within Eroea at the time. Varies had been elected after a turbulent 13 year period, over 7 elections had been called in that time and the people of Eroea were now fed up with the amount of government changes which was beginning to have a series affect on the country. Varies was elected in the 3931 election with a super majority of 581 seats, the largest majority government since the foundation of the state at the time until he bet his own record in 3967 with 698 seats.

Varies embarked on a broad social welfare program. He established the Imperial Medical Service, the Eroean Coal Company, the Common Bank and the Office for Welfare, Employment and Pensions. This seriously widened the budget of the state but coupled with increased colonial economic output, the difference was offset and allowed for Varies to maintain a small but steady government surplus throughout his term as Lord Councillor. His ability to encapsulate the general public and his ability to charm members of the aristocracy has been noted as one of his strongest traits, and along with his successful government policy, is often cited as the reasons why his tenure was so lengthy.


Varies would serve as Lord Councillor for 55 years, winning 12 consecutive elections, a feat not accomplished in any other state on Ut'un. His final five years were marred by ill health and in 4083, he formally resigned as Leader of his party. He then became Deputy Leader of the party, while appointing the new Leader, Jeremy Smith, to the position of Deputy Lord Councillor. He would lead his party into the 3986 election, before retiring and allowing Jeremy Smith to succeed him.
