War Declaration Act 2016

An act to outline the procedure for The Communist Bloc to declare war.​

Now, therefore, BE IT ENACTED by the order of the glorious Constitution of this People's Republic, by and with the advice and consent of the democratically elected representatives of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party, in holding the public mandate, in this present committee assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows-

ARTICLE I - Short Title

(1) This act may be cited as the “War Declaration Act 2016”.

ARTICLE II - Definitions

(2) “War” shall be defined as an active state of armed conflict between different regions.

(3) “Principal Act” shall refer to the current bill here presented.

(4) "Hostility" shall be defined as an engagement in or the activities involved in war, including invasion and general sabotage.

ARTICLE III - Provisions

(5) Only the Minister of Foreign Affairs with the approval of the General Secertary of the Workers' Party may submit a war declaration request to the Central Committee of the Workers' Party. Adequate time must be made by the Premier of the Party for all members of the Central Committee to ask the Minister questions and raise concerns before moving the request to a vote. In the absence of a Minister of Foreign Affairs, the General Secretary may submit these requests to the Central Committee.

(6) A war declaration request must achieve a 3/4 majority in order to be approved. Public notice must be made by the government including the reasoning behind the request as well as the result of the vote if approved.

(7) Once approved and declared, all manner of hostility may be used upon a region which has had war declared upon it. These activities will be managed by the command of the People's Revolutionary Armed Forces and Cabinet of the People's Government.

(8) At the conclusion of a war or an agreed peace, the Central Committee must vote to return to peace time and repeal the previous war declaration, achieving at least a 2/3 majority.

Exceptions

(9) The Communist Bloc and People's Revolutionary Armed Forces shall not need a declaration of war against regions that self-identify as having a National Socialist or Fascist basis or theme. Hostilities will always be active between The Communist Bloc and all regions self-identifying as National Socialist or Fascist.

ARTICLE IV - Schedule

(10) The principal act shall come into force immediately upon passage of the Central Committee with the signature of the General Secretary.
