SUNP Portal

The People's Parliament of the Socialist Union of Nemkhavia and Pristinia is the legislative organ of the Socialist Union of Nemkhavia and Pristinia at federal level, i.e. authoritatively over both the Union Territories of Nemkhavia and the Union Territories of Pristinia.

People's Council

The People's Council of the Socialist Union of Nemkhavia and Pristinia is the lower house of Parliament. It consists of all citizens, except for the Members of the People's Assembly. One can refer to its members as Councillors.

Any Councillor may put up an act for petition. The People's Assembly then examines it and votes on whether to affirm it or not. If it is affirmed, the People's Council must vote on whether to finally actually pass it or not.

If it is not affirmed by the Senate, which is a very rare event, the petitioner may not put the same proposal up for petition again in the ongoing legislative session. If it is affirmed, but it fails to reach a simple majority in the final People's Council vote, no one may put the same proposal up for petition again in the ongoing and next four legislative periods.

From time to time, this process may appear vice-versa. This is called a plebiconciliscite, or, less scientifically, a Popular Resolution. This way, a Senator puts up a decision he needs to make for vote. This does usually not happen, since most decisions that only a specific Senator can make are also made by that Senator. Popular Resolutions are thus extremely rare and used only if the authoritative Senator is completely unsure of what to do.

People's Assembly

The People's Assembly of the Socialist Union of Nemkhavia and Pristinia is the upper house of Parliament. It consists of the President, the General Secretary, and the Chancellor of the SUNP. One can refer to its members as Senators.

Any Senator may put a proposed law up for vote in the People's Council. Accordingly, any Councillor may put a proposed law up for vote in the People's Assembly. This type of law is called a bill, and a quicker way of lawmaking than with acts. However, bills are not supposed to be as severe as acts, and often concern more trivial and less grave changes and events.

There is also another form of lawmaking, apart from Act, Popular Resolution and Bill. It is called a petition. This confuses some, since the "petition" is already part of the process of creating an act. However one must distinguish between the petition which is a part of an act, and the solitary type of petition.

Basically, a petition is a list of options, composed by an Councillor. The People's Assembly then is given the petition, not to vote from the choices, but rather to confirm it. If it is confirmed, the People's Council then vote on the options. It is kind of like an election, but rather on grave decisions than on representatives in the Assembly. It may be petitioned, for example, that the SUNP change its form of government, its name, its flag and so forth.

The People's Government Peace Committee (PGPC) is a committee whose duty it is to watch, ensure and protect intermicronational peace with all means possible to them, and to ensure that the Government does everything possible to them to keep peace. Since this is no law, the Government may simply ignore the Peace Committee. However this is a rare case, and Task Force 1 of the Socialist Union Defense Forces, the White Doves, are ready to be deployed on peacekeeping missions at all times, given the budget allows them to so.

In early February 2010, John Gardner-Hammersmith volunteered to act as OAM delegate for the first negotiation runs of the Second Bir Tawil Dispute, in which representatives of the SRNA and the Grand Dukedom of Bir Tawil. Hammersmith, being a well-trained extrajudicial mediator and a cunning micronational diplomat will have to display his skills in front of the intermicronational community for the first time in these negotiations. Dresner, who has not yet assessed Hammersmith's diplomatic capabilities, will be watching the negotiations literally from over his shoulders.
