the Inaugural Council whose term will last from 4:29pm on 11/11/2011 for a maximum of 6 months, until the 11/05/2012
The aims of the council are to provide the basis for a permanent leadership system for the Arab League, and to set the wheels in motion for the future of a strong Arab League. This thread may be left but closed after the term has ended in order to show this historic step in our history in action. Any member countries of the Arab League may post in this thread and be involved in the debate.
The Inaugural Council of the Arab League
The Inaugural Council of the Arab League is a three country council (moleman1996, tenbinza and missbannana21) voted in place to start the wheels in motion for the future of the MUN Arab League. This council will remain in power for up to 6 months at the end of which a referendum on a permanent voting and leadership system must be held, if one has not already been. This election may be called whenever the council feels it is the right time during these six months, but must to be called on the 11th of May 2012 if it has not already been called. The council will help to get the Arab League up and running, and will hold votes on key issues that would set up the basic principles of the council. The general idea for this referendum on a voting system would be as follows- The council ask for suggestions from ALL full member countries, if they have any, and then after a period of time shall begin a vote with each suggestion included as an option. After a system has been chosen, an appropriate vote on the country/countries to take power, (e.g. say a 5 country council wins, then a vote for the 5 countries) will be held immediately after (within the same week if possible, if not definitely within the next week).
Powers of the Council
The council must vote on all matters that it proposes, needing two of the three countries to agree to the proposals (including the date for a vote (see above)). The council can refuse the other countries the right to vote on issues during its term if it sees fit for the benefit of the Arab League, or issues that it deems too important to be left to a vote. The council however will hold no authority over the League after the 11th of March 2012 or before the 11th of November 2011. However the council may take power back after its 6 month period if it has already called a vote, and a system that is not working has been elected, however it will require a 2/3 majority vote to do so. If the council feels that a voting method is not working, and is still within its 6 month mandate, it may reacquire power without the consent of the member states of the Arab League, but may still not extend its powers beyond the 6 month deadline under current Legislation.
Member States of the Council
All member states hold equal power in the league, and 2 out of the 3 must vote in favour for legislation to be passed, the same applying to internal votes within the council.
In the event of inactivity for a week by members, with only one country remaining active, said country may make its own re-negotiable decisions on membership admissions, and may organise any elections with the full authority allowed to a full compliment of council countries.
