The Council of State, or also known in Dutch as the Raad van State, is the legislative body of the Principality of Montescano. All members of the Council of State are either appointed by the Monarch or are members because they are Counts of one of the Counties of the Principality as landed nobles. The Council of State has the right to draft new Acts which are then subject to the consent of the Monarch. The Council of State also provides the Monarch with non-binding advice.

Acts

Acts of the Council of State are laws passed by the Council of State. They are the primary means of legislation and can overturn any other law (including previous Acts of the Council of State) except for the Statute.

Enactment

Acts of the Council of State are proposed by a member of the body, after which they may be debated and amended. For an act to pass, 50% + 1 vote of all members must give their approval to the Act. It then passes on to the Monarch, who chooses whether or not to grant Consent to the Act - if Consent is given, the Act becomes law by being formally passed by a Princely Decree.

Princely decrees

Princely Decrees may also be used purely as a executive way of administration.
