RemovalsEdit

CeleraEdit

Due to complete inactivity in the General Assembly chatroom, First Justice Celera was proposed exclusively to the members of the General Assembly for removal via the Vote of No Confidence procedure on 15 April 2017. This procedure was heavily criticised by Cedoria and Llorens, particularly, as the Vote of No Confidence wasn't presented to the general public before its vote and a new bill instituting complete change to the process, the Democratic Confidence Act, was approximately one day from highly likely passing. This resulted in a heated debate on the regional message board, followed by formal apologies from Secretary Losinia and Minister of Defence New Tuva SSR. Rathfarnham was ineligible to vote under the Interest Clause. The results of the no-confidence motion were as follows:

Yes
7
No
0

New Tuva SSREdit

Due to rising tensions between Losinia and New Tuva SSR, which tipped due to disagreements and infighting over the secretive removal and defence of First Justice Celera, New Tuva SSR was replaced by The Final Horseman as Minister of Defence on 18 April 2017 by Secretary Losinia.

LosiniaEdit

Due to their accused incompetence and failure to fulfil Constitutional responsibilities over the first month of the term, now commonly referred to as the April Crisis, Secretary Losinia was proposed to the public for removal by Cedoria via the Vote of No Confidence procedure on 27 April 2017. Following intense discussion closely following the announcement of the motion, Losinia failed to maintain his promise to resume the talk and did not make any other comments for a number of days. Unexpectedly, Losinia departed the region for the allied leftist region of North Korea on 30 April 2017 before banjecting the heavily influential nations of British Accia and New Tuva SSR. The Vote of No Confidence commenced later that day to ensure that proper legal procedure was followed to remove Losinia as the Secretary, although Atealia took over as interim-Secretary from 1 May 2017. Voting was held from this date till 3 May 2017. The results of the no-confidence motion were as follows:

Yes
21
No
0
