Reichsversammlung passes biggest tranche

of laws in Abeldane history

By Horatio Eden, political editor and Reichsversammlung correspondent The Reichsversammlung, the federal Abeldane legislature, tonight passed the biggest set of laws in Abeldane history, clocking in with nine bills being converted to legislation in one session, including Attorney General Horatio Eden’s landmark judicial powers bill. The ninth - MP and Media Minister Max Pollack’s Guests of MPs Bill - was rejected on grounds of the fact that the provisions of the bill, enabling members of the Reichsversammlung to bring guests to testify in the legislature at the Speaker’s discretion, could be achieved under the remit of a standing order issued by the Speaker directly under the Standing Orders Act. We have compiled a full list of all legislation passed tonight, including brief summaries of their provisions, which can be accessed here. The longest act passed tonight was the Attorney General’s Ministry of Justice (Enumerated Powers) Bill, which marks a substantial victory for Eden after his previous plan for a Central Investigation Department was narrowly defeated. A full summary of that bill is also available, but in brief: The Attorney General can now enact regulations to authorise criminal investigations, bring charges against persons unilaterally, police areas held in common, such as the Abel to Dabel chat, and expunge criminal records; The Ministry of Justice has been authorised to hold criminal records on all criminal elements in Abeldane society; The Ministry of Justice has been given sweeping powers to “take any particular action” to further criminal investigations within the parameters of constitutional and statutory law; Makes it a criminal offence for people to refuse to comply with orders from agents of the federal government, provided those orders are lawful. Also passed during the session were the Lord Chancellor Bill, which created the position of Lord Chancellor within the executive office of the Emperor, and the Parliamentary Defections (Resolution) Bill, which resolved the issue created when MP Alex von Hapsburg, currently campaigning to be re-elected First Minister in Alexander, defected from his original party, the Abeldane National Independence Party, to join the National Federalists, depriving the ANIP of one of the seats to which they had been elected. Also announced at the conclusion of the session was the date for the commencement of the Second Deputy Speaker elections, contested between former Vorsitzender Artemis Langford and Attorney General Horatio Eden. The election will begin January 1st, 2018.
