GOVERNMENT

The Governance Structure of the Free Republic of Verdis is designed to be simple, designed as a republic with elements of direct democracy.

The population of Verdis is to be divided into Representative groups, each of these groups will have 150 people in them and there will be 100 groups in total. Every two years a representative elected by their group will sit at the House of Representatives. Here laws and regulations are voted upon. Laws that a majority of the House of Representatives agree to pass are sent to the President to sign. If the President signs the proposed law it will come into effect. If the president does not choose to sign the law the House of Representatives might have to change parts of the law or persuade the President to pass it.

In the case where the public would like to remove a President, the decision must first pass the House of Representatives like a normal law. If it passes a referendum is held. If the majority vote is to remove the current President the current vice President will take power until an election can be held. If the election is not held within six months from the results of the referendum a vote must be taken in the House of Representatives to decide the President. A Presidential election is to happen every five years. Not all citizens are required to vote. Whichever candidate gets the most votes will win the presidency.
