Common Parliament of Pelasgia
XVII Legislative Session

Legislative Work | Legislative proposals (Bills) currently under review
"Act amending the electoral law" ( )
- Introduced by: Vasileios Galanis (Propontis B), Minister of the Interior
- Type: Legislative proposal (bill) - proposed statute
- Ministry: Interior
- Status: Passed Committee, tabled for debate
- Date of submission: 3 December 2020


Summary: The proposed act would replace the current electoral system for the Boule of Representatives (single member plurality, commonly known as "first-past-the-post") with a mixed system combining elements of both singe member plurality and proportional representation. Currently, proportional representation is reserved for urban electoral districts, while all other electoral districts use single member plurality. Under the reformed system, the Boule of Representatives would be made up of 527 seats, with 300 seats elected based on proportional representation and 227 seats elected based on single member plurality. A parallel ballot system will be used, with citizens voting for both their party and constituency representative of choice. Elections for the Council of State will not be affected by this measure.

Pelasgian Union
Common Parliament of Pelasgia
XVII Legislative Session

Legislative Work | Legislative proposals (Bills) currently under review
A. "Respecting immigration, naturalisation, and overseas citizens' suffrage" ( )
- Introduced by: Vasileios Galanis (Propontis B), Minister of the Interior


- Type: Legislative proposal (bill) - proposed statute
- Ministry: Interior
- Status: Passed Committee, tabled for debate
- Date of submission: 6 December 2020


Summary: First, the proposed act would establish a points-based immigration system to select a limited number of annual immigrants to be calculated by a specialized Secretariat of the Government combining input from the Ministries of the Interior, Labour and Social Services, Prime Minister's Office, and Foreign Affairs. The system will evaluate candidates based on youth, education, experience and fluency in Pelasgian. Second, the proposed act would reform the naturalisation system of Pelasgian nationality law, which was previously limited to strict jus sanguinis. Foreign permanent residents in Pelasgia would be able to seek nationality based on: (1) continuous residence in Pelasgia for 5 years; (2) being at least 18 years old and otherwise legally competent; (3) having a history of good behavior generally, and no past history of seditious behavior; (4) possessing sufficient capital or skills, either personally or within family, to support oneself in Pelasgia; and (5) being stateless or willing to renounce foreign citizenship and swear allegiance to Pelasgia. Third, the proposed act would enable Pelasgian nationals residing abroad to vote in Pelasgian elections -- based on the reform electoral system under Statute № 27/2021, such electors would vote for a party list for the 300 proportional representation seats, as well as the district representative in their last or current district of formal residency in Pelasgia.

B. "Respecting overseas citizens' taxation and fees for overseas civil registry acts and other consular services" ( )
- Introduced by: Vasileios Galanis (Propontis B), Minister of the Interior
- Type: Legislative proposal (bill) - proposed statute
- Ministry: Interior
- Status: Passed Committee, tabled for debate
- Date of submission: 6 December 2020


Summary: The proposed act would establish a flat income tax on Pelasgian citizens residing abroad, equal to the average income tax for Pelasgians residing in Pelasgia, so as to finance Pelasgian government services to overseas citizens and to justify their ability to vote in Pelasgian elections based on the principle of "taxation requires representation". The proposed act would further establish fees for overseas civil registry acts and other consular services offered to Pelasgian citizens residing abroad by the Pelasgian State through its overseas missions and other public agencies; these fees would be set by schedule by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Addendum: In response to controversy, the Minister of the Interior has requested that the following passage be added to this summary: The tax rate for overseas Pelasgians is the current average domestic tax rate (22.4%), unless otherwise specified in the Tax Code. If the taxe rate applying to the overseas citizen in their country of residence is below the Pelasgian average, the difference is taxed. If the rate is above or equal to the Pelasgian average, there is no tax. In either case, Pelasgian citizens abroad must file a tax statement with the National Tax Agency via their nearest Pelasgian consular or diplomatic authority. The law includes a number of exceptions to avoid double taxation and makes provision for the facilitation of tax treaties.


C. "Amending the Penal Code with respect to abortion" (
)
- Introduced by: Spyridon Armenopoulos (Propontis A), Minister of Justice
- Type: Legislative proposal (bill) - proposed statute
- Ministry: Justice
- Status: Passed Committee, tabled for debate
- Date of submission: 17 January 2021


Summary: The proposed act would amend Article 304 of the Penal Code, which governs abortion. The current article bans abortion but provides four broad exceptions, based on which the mother can seek an abortion with the approval of two doctors: (1) serious danger to the mother's life; (2) serious danger that the mother's physical or mental well-being might be disturbed; (3) a medical diagnosis that the child born would suffer from a serious disability or incurable disease; (4) the child born is the product of rape or inbreeding. The proposed act would amend these grounds to read as follows: (1) serious danger to the mother's life; (2) serious danger that the mother's physical or mental well-being might be disturbed; (32) a certified medical diagnosis that the child born would suffer from a serious disability or incurable disease; (4) the child born is the product of rape or inbreeding. The act would impose stiffer penalties for violations of this Article, including a 10-year penalty instead of a 2-year penalty of imprisonment; it would also impose both penal and professional penalties upon a doctor making a false certified diagnosis under amended ground (2)/current ground (3).

Pelasgian Union
Presidency of the Union

By His Excellency, the PRESIDENT of the Pelasgian Union

- A PROCLAMATION -

"For a More Perfect Union and a New Constitutional Order"

LEON IOANNOU VATATZIDIS, P.

Whereas there exists, since April 22nd of this Year of Grace, a State of Siege across the territory of the Pelasgian Union, pursuant to which the ordinary operations of the Constitution have been suspended, in response to a State of Apprehended or Real Insurrection over the same since at least February 22nd of this same Year of Grace, and, further, in response to an attempted Rebellion against the Lawful Authority of the State on April 22nd of this Year of Grace;

And whereas the present political institutions of the Pelasgian Union, which were designed for a Constitutional Monarchy that no longer exists, are transitory in nature and unsuited to ensuring the Lawful Order, Public Peace and General Welfare of the Pelasgian Nation, as evidenced by the admission of the Council of Ministers and both Houses of the Common Parliament of Pelasgia of the need for a radical constitutional reform;

And whereas the Presidency of the Pelasgian Union retains residual powers to protect the Pelasgian Nation-State and Pelasgian Society, and to ensure the prosperity, continuity and longevity thereof in accordance with the Laws of the State and the most fundamental principles of Natural Law, and is indeed required to exercise those powers when grave threats to the Pelasgian People emerge;

And whereas the Pelasgian Union was established in the Name of the Holy and Consubstantial and Indivisible Trinity, whose Church and Faith serve as the bedrock of Pelasgian Society and Nationality since the days of Pelasgia's salvation, starting with Saint Lydia of Thyatira and continuing to this day through the efforts of the Great Church of Christ in Propontis;

WE, the President of the Pelasgian Union, at the advice of the Common Parliament of Pelasgia, ENACT, ORDAIN, and DECREE as follows:

United Pelasgian Republics
Common Parliament of Pelasgia
XIX Legislative Session

Legislative Work | Legislative proposals currently under review
A. "Respecting digital sovereignty" ( )
- Introduced by: Vasileios Galanis (Propontis B), Minister of the Interior
- Type: Legislative proposal (bill)
- Ministry: Interior
- Status: Passed Committee, tabled for debate
- Date of submission: 6 June 2021


Summary: The proposed law would require the servers of websites storing the personal data of Pelasgian nationals do so within the borders of the United Pelasgian Republic, on penalty of being banned in Pelasgia. The law would also establish an independent oversight body for the internet similar to current oversight bodies for broadcasting, in order to ensure the compliance of websites and digital services operating in Pelasgia with the laws of the State and with the broad morals and values of Pelasgian society. The oversight body would be allowed to issue penalties for violatings, including fines and extending up to a permanent ban from operating in Pelasgia. Decisions of the oversight body would be subject to judicial review through the administrative courts of Pelasgia.

B. "Respecting foreign electoral and political interference" ( )
- Introduced by: Vasileios Galanis (Propontis B), Minister of the Interior
- Type: Legislative proposal (bill)
- Ministry: Interior
- Status: Passed Committee, tabled for debate
- Date of submission: 6 June 2021


Summary: The proposed law would revise current Pelasgian prohibitions against foreign interference to more clearly organise them within a single legal regime. Briefly, the law would require the registration of foreign agents as such, in addition to banning certain kinds of foreign agents and certain kinds of foreign interference. More particularly, foreign agents would be bodies established by foreign interests, trained by foreign interests, funded by foreign interests, or otherwise closely and inseparably connected to foreign interests, that operate in Pelasgia with a view to influencing Pelasgian society, politics, elections, business or other aspects of public and social life in an organised fashion. The law would create a permanent register of foreign agents, in addition to prohibiting certain kinds of foreign interference and establishing strict penalties therefor. Such prohibited interference would include, but not be limited to, direct or indirect donations, favours, electoral endorsements, and online or offline advertising and organizing, to name a few offences.

United Pelasgian Republics
Common Parliament of Pelasgia
XIX Legislative Session

Legislative Proposals | Proposed legislation
№ 301/2021 "On the separation of State and Church" ( )
- Introduced by: Spyridon Armenopoulos (Propontis A), Prime Minister
- Type: Constitutional Amendment, Overarching Law
- Status: Introduced - Submitted to Committee
- Date of submission: 28 June 2021
Summary: The proposed law modify Article 3 of the Constitution of Pelasgia to institute the separation of the Pelasgian State from the Orthodox Church and from religion in general, abolishing any formal link between the government and the Great Church of Christ in Propontis. The proposed law would not abolish any of the privileges and rights of the Great Church of Christ in Propontis and of any other formally recognised religious organisation in Pelasgia, apart from those stemming from an official link with the State. The Pelasgian State will not fund religious institutions, nor will it provide religious education in public schools; likewise, clerics will not be considered public servants, nor will they be hired as such (exceptions to these measures exist for military chaplains). The proposed law guarantees freedom of religion and conscience, and reaffirms the State's obligation to guarantee religious freedom in Pelasgia.

№ 302/2021 "On public control over higher education" ( )
- Introduced by: Theodoros Raptis (Evosmos), Minister of Education
- Type: Law
- Status: Introduced - Submitted to Committee
- Date of submission: 28 June 2021
Summary: The proposed law would establish public control over all institutions of higher learning in Pelasgia, with a view to establishing democratic oversight over scientific research and the influence of academia on public policy. The proposed law would directly nationalize all tertiary learning institutions, regardless of legal status, and place them under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Education. The proposed law would then reorganize several universities with a view to rationalizing and modernizing higher learning in Pelasgia, and to disestablishing entrenched elites and networks which do not necessarily operate in a meritocratic manner. Notable reorganizations include a network of thirteen (13) National Polytechnics, which would replace all engineering and scientific faculties within the old universities; a system of thirteen (13) State Schools of Jurisprudence which would replace law faculties; a network of thirteen (13) Public Medical Schools, which would take over all medical faculties and schools in the nation. Other reorganizations of note include the separation of theological schools from universities and their transfer to Church jurisdiction, and the stricter limitation of university admissions, which will now solely depend on nationwide academic exams.

TOP SECRET – PROVISIONAL GOVT EYES ONLY
White Paper on Constitutional Reform
ΑΣ 165/2021 - ΕΙΔΙΚΟ ΑΡΧΕΙΟ ΠτΕ

FWD from PRIME MINISTER'S STAFF
Key Points:
  • Secularism: The State must ensure the separation of temporal and spiritual powers, as the union of the two has led to conflict both between the State and Church and between various factions of Pelasgian society. Whereas the pre-eminence of the Orthodox faith must be recognised, this must not be accompanied by a meaningful fusion of State and Church.
  • Centralisation: The regionalisation of power has proven disastrous for political unity and stability, as various levels of government are incentivised to compete for power at the expense of the whole State. The experiment of devolution that started in the 1990s and resulted in federalisation in the 2020s must be rolled back to a sane, unitary state.
  • Unicameralism and Accountability: Mixed representation and bicameralism have allowed the formation of unaccountable elites and of obscure power politics. The only way to resolve this is through a unicameral legislature based on proportional representation of all Pelasgians. In keeping with point 2, the Senate is redundant.
  • Democratic Centralism: In keeping with the objectives of points 2 and 3, the legislature must be the central point of authority for all power in Pelasgia. This would ensure the accountability of the State to the citizenry. As such, the legislature must elect the President and must also provide necessary confidence to the Prime Minister; it must also be consulted for all forms of legislation. An exception to this would be the judiciary, whose independence must be maintained at all costs, except for the High Courts, whose membership must necessarily be selected by the Government.
  • Officialisation of Civil Society: Universities, media, and civil society groups now play a major role in governance. Nonetheless, they are often independent of the State, something which allows them to influence public discourse without being shaped by it. These power actors must be subjected to democratic control through a mix of nationalisation, partition, and regulation.
  • Socio-Economic Reform: To ensure general stability and peace the state must provide welfare and employment to Pelasgians. This applies particularly to poor rural Pelasgians flocking to major cities, whose dissatisfaction with life as it is causes much political instability. Therefore, the State must ensure that all Pelasgians are provided with a comfortable standard of living, within the means of a society such as Pelasgia’s, of course.
  • Abolition of Gerontocracy: A survey of Pelasgia’s most senior government, academic, civil society, religious, and business officials reveals that a supermajority (upwards of 60%) of them are above the age of 60. This means that Pelasgia is ruled by a generation of experienced but woefully outdated and out of touch individuals, who have no contact with the needs of the country’s young majority. The youth of Pelasgia must be empowered if there is to be a future of social peace.
  • Timeline for Return to Civilian Gov't: Pelasgia must return to civilian government as soon as these reforms are irreversibly instituted. A preliminary step would be the approval of a new constitution reflecting these policies by referendum, following which an election could take place. If approved with a significant enough majority, these reforms could form a central platform for a new governing party bent on carrying them out to completion. The military would act as the said party's reserve of strength and as its guarantee against reactionary tendencies within established elites or ambitious upstarts.

Pelasgian State
Ministry of National Defence
Internal Memo

Nymphaion | 04/08/2021 | TOP SECRET
To the attention of the Presidency of the State.

Your Excellency,

Per your directive, the Ministry of National Defence has shortlisted the following items to replace the AT-12 Assault Rifle and the Cataphract 2 Main Battle Tank from service in the Pelasgian Armed Forces.

For the AT-12, the choices are the following:
  • The SG3 Assault Rifle (Beck & Böhm, Eiffelland) [ ]
  • The PT-21 Assault Rifle (Koressios Defence Systems, Pelasgia) [ ]
  • The T-33 Assault Rifle (Pegasos Heavy Industries, Pelasgia) [ ]
  • The YP-556 Assault Rifle (Pegasos Heavy Industries, Pelasgia) [ ]
For the Cataphract 2, the choices are the following:
  • Magarus P4 MBT (Magarus, Eiffelland) [ ]
  • Atlas 4 MBT (Pegasos Heavy Industries, Pelasgia) [ ]
  • Archon 3 MBT (Titan Motor Company, Pelasgia) [ ]
  • A2 Nikator MBT (Adamidis-Aetos Defence Industries, Pelasgia) [ ]
As trials continue, I will submit results and evaluations to your consideration.

Whereas a Pelasgian design would be preferred, cost might militate in favour of the Eiffellandian options, even in spite of licensing fees due to economies of scale. The estimated cost for 300.000 rifles and 1.004 tanks to replace current stocks completely would be €M900.000.000 and €M5.762.960.000, respectively, for a total cost of €M6.662.960.000. In any case, the Ministry of National Defence stresses the importance of domestic production (via license or otherwise), in order to ensure Pelasgia's strategic self-sufficiency in case of a protracted land conflict.
