The Privy Parliament, also known as the Small Parliament, is a legislative entity within the Kingdom of Kohlandia established by Queen Catherine I to draft the Kohlandian Constitution and other legislation as deemed necessary for the establishment of a working legal, judicial and social system within the kingdom. The Privy Parliament will put the Constitution to a public vote upon its completion via a referendum.

If the Constitution is accepted, the Privy Parliament will automatically disband; with a full Kohlandian Parliament being established in its place.

History

The Privy Parliament was established by Catherine I on 01 September 2019, two days after Kohlandia was founded. Its purpose is to gather HM the Queen's most trusted advisors together in order to draft the Constitution of the new Kingdom; as well as to assess what legislation is necessary to allow the country to function. That legislation will then be sorted into "essential", "necessary", and "potential" categories.

The Privy Parliament is tasked with the job of drafting necessary and essential legislation only, with only the top-tier legislation in both categories being a priority. Any legislation identified by the Privy Parliament but not drafted will become a priority for the first legislative timetable of the full Kohlandian Parliament, when it is established.
