Introduction

This topic contains several templates for Speakers and Members of the World Forum alike in order to propose resolution drafts and conduct elections. The topic shall also serve as a collection of all current versions of passed resolutions.
More information on the history of the resolutions, the current World Forum administration or its members and observers or the membership in WF sub-organisations can be found on TSPedia.

Speaker Election Procedure

Phase 1 - Nominations

Phase 1 of a Speaker election lasts seven days and is ought to be opened by the incumbent Speaker, when they are 11 months into their term. In this phase, member nations can do four things:

Speaker nominations

Any member can nominate any other member, except for itself, for the position of Speaker. A nominee must accept or decline the nomination within the deadline. Not doing so will lead automatically to an assumed refusal of the nomination and thus to the member being disregarded for Phase 2 of the election.

Committee affiliations

During every Speaker election, members of the World Forum may change their affiliation to the Committees of the World Forum. If a member does not post any information to this bullet point, it is assumed the committee affiliation shall not change.

Justice nominations

Each member, who is not represented by a judge yet or who desires to replace their judge at the International Court (WFIC) may nominate a judge during every Speaker election. The member shall give additional information to the judge, so the other members can make an informed vote on them.

Every nation, who is represented with a judge at the WFIC and does not aim to replace their judge, must face an approval vote on the judge at every regular Speaker election. A renewed nomination or presentation of an incumbent judge is not necessary.

If a member does not appoint a judge to the WFIC, it is assumed that this nation does not intend to be represented at it for the time being.

Membership in WF affiliated organisations

The World Forum has created several sub-organisations like the International Labor and Trade Council (ILTC) or the PNA as part of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW). Membership in those organisations is voluntary. The incumbent Speaker shall, when starting an election, provide an overview over the current WF affiliated organisations each member could join (or leave). If a member does not comment on their memberships in WF affiliated organisations, it is assumed, no changes on their memberships are wished for.

Phase 1 Template

The Speaker shall use the following template to conduct Phase 1 of the election. Stylistic changes are allowed. Each member should refrain from posting more than one post per election phase, so if a member has casted their vote and after that is nominated for the position of Speaker, they shall edit their original post and not accept their nomination through a second cast of votes. Also each roleplayer shall be encouraged to consolidate all its votes into one post and not divide up the posts of each member they are representing.

**Speaker nomination(s):**
**Do you accept your nomination (if applicable)?** [ ] Yes | [ ] No

**Justice nominee:**
**Background information on the nominee:**

**Committee memberships:**

**Membership in WF affiliated organisations:**

Phase 2 - Voting

Phase 2 of the Speaker elections last another 7 days following Phase 1.
It contains three elections and still the opportunity for each member to change their membership in WF-affiliated organisations. The following sub-chapters will be only about the elections. The roleplayers are asked to play fair and only cast one effective vote altogether, even if they have control over multiple World Forum members.

Speaker election

The Speaker election is a vote in the IRV system, which means that each member has one vote, in which they may rank any or all nominees, who accepted their nomination, plus the option “RON” (re-open nominations). The option receiving a majority according to IRV rules laid out in WF Resolution 1 will be styled Speaker of the Assembly. They will assume their office the moment this phase of the election has ended.

Election of the Committee Officers

The Officers of the Committees are like the Speakers of each Committee, but generally will not have that much significance in our roleplay. Only members of a Committee can become their Officer. We are generally assuming, any nation would be willing to become a Committee Officer and thus we skip the nomination phase for it. IRP another IRV vote would be necessary, but to make things less complex and tiring the Speaker is encouraged to let people vote for the Officer positions through a poll, which can be created by clicking the gear wheel in the post creator and then choosing “Build poll”.

Approval of the Justices

Each member may approve of all, any or none of the justice nominees. It might be useful to use a (multiple-choice) poll in this case too, so that members do not forget to cast their votes for justices, who have not been presented anew also.

Phase 2 Template

**Vote for the Speaker**
<small>*Please order the options x, y, z and RON from most preferred to least preferred option* </small>

**Vote for the Officers** *(only if not done through a poll)*
<small>*Please vote for each Committee you are a part of, who shall become the Officer of said Committee. You may vote for three members of the Committee, including yourself, by ranking them from most to least preferred option.

**Approval vote for the Justices** *(only if not done through a poll)*
I approve of the following judges:
[ ] All
[ ] The judges from (please list the member states, whose justices you approve of)
[ ] None

**Membership in WF affiliated organisations:**

Phase 2.1 - Election of the Deputy Speaker

Once Phase 2 has finished and a Speaker was elected, they may nominate one of the other members as their Deputy Speaker. After that member has accepted its nomination, a vote over the course of three days will be held, in which every member can vote “Aye”, “Abstain” or “Nay” to the proposed Deputy Speaker. This vote also might be best conducted through a (single-choice) poll.

They may warn members or observers, who misbehave in the Assembly and retain the right to strip a member or observer from their speaking rights or impose other sanctions, if the warnings do not lead to a change of behavior of said member or observer. Sanctionable misbehavior especially includes unparliamentary language, insulting or threatening an official, deliberately destroying property of an official or the World Forum and harming the body or health of an official. If there is no other way to reestablish the order in the Assembly, the Speaker of the Assembly may restore order by using the World Forum’s police.

    1. suggestions from the International Court
    2. resolution drafts proposed by a Committee or a group of members
    3. resolution drafts proposed by a single member
    4. applications on the accession or promotion of states
    5. debates on a political topic proposed by a Committee

The quorum is met, if at least half of the members of the Assembly are present in the assembly hall. If the vote on the resolution draft requires a two-thirds majority, at least two-thirds of the members of the Assembly must be present in the assembly hall. If a member doubts the quorum is still met, before a vote shall commence, the Speaker of the Assembly must reestablish a quorum.
  3. The voting process on a resolution draft commences after a debate and a member or the Speaker of the Assembly motioning to vote. After the motion is seconded by other members and there has not been an objection to the motion, the Speaker of the Assembly may open the vote. An objection can be made once without any explanation. Any additional objection following that must be explained. The Speaker of the Assembly decides whether an explained objection is valid.
  4. Voting is conducted either electronically or by raising hands. Each member has one vote and each vote has equal weight. Each member can either approve the resolution draft (Aye), reject the resolution draft (Nay) or abstain from the vote.
  5. The duration of the voting period depends on the type of resolution draft presented to the Assembly. For resolutions in the sense of Section B, Subsections 1 and 4 it is three days, for binding and standard resolutions it is five days.

Binding resolutions shall declare their nature in the first or last section of the resolution draft.
  2. Every standard resolution consists of the logo of the World Forum, the resolution’s title, the measure from Section F the member wishes to take and against whom the measure shall become effective and a comprehensive explanatory statement on the reasons and proportionality of the to-be-taken measure. The resolution draft can also regulate, in which way the measure shall be carried out. The resolution draft presented to the Assembly must be in Austral.
  3. Resolutions are principally numbered according to the order they were approved of.

Section F - Standard measures

  1. The Assembly has the right to make use of the standard measures listed in subsection 2 through approving a standard resolution. Principally the measures must be taken one after the other from the least severe to the most detrimental one. In emergency situations, less severe measures, namely the measures listed in Subsection 2, Letters a-f, can be skipped. The Assembly shall always respect the principle of proportionality as defined in Subsection 4 when a standard measure is taken.

  4. A measure is proportionate, if it is suitable, necessary and appropriate. A measure is suitable, if it can reach the set goal or at least helps in reaching said goal. A measure is necessary, if it is the one suitable measure impairing the affected party and the general public the least. A measure is appropriate, if the aimed for advantage for the general public is not objectively disproportionate in comparison to the disadvantage occurring to the affected party.
  5. In accordance with World Forum Resolution 1b, Section B, Subsection 1, Letter a, the affected party or a member has the right to call the International Court and take legal action against those measures. This does not stop the enforcement of the standard measures.

WFR 10 - Condemnation of Izaakia

Current version as passed on 16 November 2020

The members of the World Forum are deeply concerned about the development of the Kingdom of Izaakia following the annexations of the regions of La Montagne and Brödmark (subsequently called “regions”), conducted through a private Izaakian company with unknown ties to the official government of Izaakia. To ensure the continued peace and stability on the continent of Bailtem:

  1. Izaakia shall withdraw its troops from the regions and cooperate with the World Forum to ensure, the regions are completely demilitarised. This does not include the military La Montagne and Brödmark originally maintained.
  2. The regions shall each conduct an independent, democratic vote on their annexation by Izaakia. Only the populace, who lived in the regions prior to the annexation shall have a vote in their respective referendum. Neither local nor foreign powers shall intervene into the referendum, thus directly or indirectly changing the populations' opinion on their annexation.

Electoral observers sent by the WF shall ensure, no democratic principle is violated during the referendum, the counting of votes and the proclamation of the result. If the Kingdom of Izaakia does not cooperate with the WF within four weeks after this resolution passed the Assembly, the Speaker shall file a case against its member state for the violation of the self-determination of the peoples in the regions at the International Court.

Note (not part of resolution text): A referendum was not conducted in due time and under the regulations imposed by the WF Assembly. Thus a trial against the USI was started on 28 November 2021.. Once a verdict is found, the verdict will act as a WF resolution and supercede WFR 10.

WFR 14 - Reform Resolution I

Addendums 1 and 2; Passed 13 May 2022

WFR 15 - World Forum Reaction to the Situation on Mainland Ryccia

Current version as passed on 1 August 2022 and last amended on 15 October 2022

Section A - Standard measures adopted

  1. A condemnation according to WFR 1d Sec. F Subsec. 2 Ltr. g
  2. The calling of the International Court according to WFR 1d Sec. F Subsec. 2 Ltr. h
  3. Implementation of severe economic sanctions according to WFR 1d Sec. F Subsec. 2 Ltr. j
  4. The calling of a WF peacekeeping Mission according to WFR 1d Sec. F Subsec. 2 Ltr. m

Section B - Explanation of Necessity and Proportionality

  1. Due to the nature of the junta and them not representing the legitimate government of the Ryccian Federation and furthermore due to the brutal actions taken not only against their own citizens, but also against those of member states of the World Forum and members of families of one of our delegations, and additionally due to their extremist views and actions in the Valoran Civil War, the Assembly hereby assesses, that the situation in mainland Ryccia is an emergency situation, in which sanctions according to WFR 1d Sec. F Subsec. 2 Ltr. a-f cannot be considered effective. Therefore they are skipped in accordance with WFR 1d Sec. F Subsec. 1 S. 3.
  2. The condemnation will help the international community especially the World Forum to reach the goal of the isolation of the Ryccian junta. Through the condemnation, nations all around the world are alarmed to cut any ties to the junta which is violating international law and human rights. This condemnation will not hinder any nations in their actions, but it sends a signal to the international community with what they are dealing with.
  3. The calling of the International Court shall help in opening a case against any war criminal from the Ryccian junta. The WFIC is also able to suggest or impose necessary sanctions, this Assembly cannot pass. As the junta has not shown respect to general international law, human rights and the Grovne Convention, it is questionable, whether the calling of the WFIC will have much of an effect during the conflict and will not just play a huge role after the end of it. Therefore the Assembly shall pass additional standard measures.
  4. The Assembly skips the standard measure of suspension due to the Ryccian junta not being represented in the World Forum. Suspending the Mirrey administration, to which the Ryccian delegation has plead allegiance to, would be wrong sign to the world and also to the junta, that would feel legitimated to represent Ryccia on the international stage officially.
  5. The severe economic sanctions towards the Ryccian junta will ensure that the Military junta isn’t provided with material capable of producing weapons. The sanctions will isolate the Ryccian junta and its economy further weakening the military force. This measure is necessary, as it provides a strong leverage against the junta and only affects the Ryccian junta's side. The weakening of the military through economic sanctions will help ensure a peaceful transition to a civil government of, by and for the people.
  6. The Assembly skips the standard measure of diplomatic sanctions due to the Ryccian Junta being already isolated from the international community and not pursuing any communiques through diplomatic channels. Nor does the Ryccian Junta hold distinct positions in its governance to be targeted by these sanctions. Therefore, the Assembly believes that diplomatic sanctions cannot be considered effective.
  7. The Assembly calls for an international blockade to be operational as to further limit the potential threat of the Ryccian Junta by containing its military capabilities. Therefore the Assembly believes that the implementation of an international blockade will be an effective measure to further contain the threat posed by the Ryccian Junta.
  8. The Assembly calls for a peacekeeping mission to put an end to the Ryccian Junta’s threat to Cordilia and Pacifica as a whole. The Ryccian Junta has continuously proven that it will not cease its aggressive actions. Therefore the Assembly believes in the implementation of a peacekeeping mission to ensure a peaceful transition to a new Ryccian civil government.
