The Government Procedures Act 2023 is an Act of Assembly passed on 21 June 2023 that properly outlines the functions of the Arstotzkan Federal Government in one document. The Government Procedures Act along with the Armed Forces Act are the two new acts of assembly which replace the two federal statutes, the Arstotzkan Statute on Government Systems and Arstotzkan Statute on Military Systems.

The Government Procedures Act extends and builds on from Article 5, Section 1 of the Constitution of the Arstotzkan Union, which creates a good government, known as the Arstotzkan Federal Government. The document also properly establishes the powers of the executive, legislative and judiciary. It is also revolutionary in that it grants judicial review and proper functions for the judiciary. The Act also entrenches the Constitution but also grants the right for any Arstotzkan citizen or resident over the age of sixteen to propose legislation, which is also an article that is entrenched. The entrenchment granted by this Act makes it hard for the executive to pass an Executive Order or Executive Presidential Order to overturn an entrenchment.

Some in the Arstotzkan Federal Government have also begun referring to the act as the "Constitution Act 2023" for the large amount of detail it goes into with the separation of powers and functions of government that have never before existed in Arstotzkan legislation.


The Government Procedures Act outlines the functions of government similarly to the Arstotzkan Statute on Government Systems however it just extends them. Some notable Articles include are, Article 11, Section 3 which states:

The Office of the Presidency will have the power to remove or terminate State Representatives on the basis of:
- The individual has committed a crime within the Arstotzkan Union.
- The individual is acting outside of their prescribed powers.
- The individual has shown allegiance to a different state and the allegiance is greater than the one to the Arstotzkan Union.
- The individual has breached their constitutional powers.
- The individual has conspired to create legislation that could threaten, harm, or attempt to insight violence towards the Executive, Legislative or Judicial branches of the Arstotzkan Federal Government or any part of the Arstotzkan Union.

— Article 11, Section 3

Other include:

The Federal Judiciary shall have the power to review and assess legislation that is passed by Federal Assembly and Executive Committee and will have the power to establish a Plea of Amendment to the Executive Committee if it is regarded as unconstitutional or breaches already existing legislation.

— Article 8, Section 4

The courts below the Supreme Federal Court shall be bound by the decisions of the Court and the same shall apply for courts below the Federal Court of Appeals and Federal Executive Court. This article shall apply the doctrine of precedent to the Federal Judiciary.

— Article 6, Section 4

The Government Procedures Act also brings in some articles from the old statute including Articles 11, 12 & 13 and also extends the idea of terms to the Executive Committee, Politburo & Federal Assembly. The Act also prescribes that holding any office in the Arstotzkan Federal Government lasts the life of the individual and one can only leave if they die, retire or resign.[1]
