The Board of Royal Advisors is the unicameral legislature of the Free City-State of Edenopolis. The body is purely advisory, as all legislative and executive power is vested in the office of the King of Edenopolis; all motions and legislation passed by it become Resolutions, which must achieve the approval of the sitting monarch to be enacted.
The Board of Royal Advisors is mentioned in the first Royal Edict of the reign of King Horatio Eden; it was originally created as a public body on the 5th of November, 2016, as an advisory body to the King with no formal legislative or executive power.
On the 6th of November, 2016, its powers were formalized slightly; it presently has the capacity to draft and pass Resolutions (motions and legislation that must acquire royal assent to achieve passage), similarly to the Westminster system. Later that day, Stephen Freayth was appointed as the first Chief Executive of the Board of Royal Advisors, and something approaching a cabinet was formed.
The Board of Royal Advisors serves at the pleasure of the sitting monarch. However, the Chief Executive position is elected, and has the power to select who gets to sit on the Board. Originally, the power to select Executives for the board was granted to the King (though the King can still approve/remove/reject candidates for the Board at their discretion).
There is no legal maximum to the number of members the Board can have.
