Passing and putting a law into effect in the Triumvirate is a process that requires all three branches of government to work together. The process is established via the Constitution and it is usually fairly speedy. The image on the right gives a visual representation of what all the steps are.
The process begins with an idea, a motive. A law is created because it satisfies a need or demand, not for no reason. The idea often comes from individual Executives which is part of the reason it's an advantage to have each Executive be an expert in a different field because it allows for more variety. The Executives will often work with each other to put a law together. Sometimes the idea will come from outside of the Executive Branch such as from citizens or activism groups.
When the idea for the law has come together and the law to be proposed is ready to go to the Executive Branch, an Executive (usually the original sponsor) will table the law to the branch. At that point the Executive Branch begins discussing the law.
In discussion the branch will suggest adjustments or point out flaws in the law, this can go on for some time depending on the length of the law.
When it seems like most of the branch would agree to it or the law has come to the point where it will not be adjusted any further, the Executives start voting. A majority of Executives need to vote in favor in order for it to pass. If passed it proceeds to the Administrative Branch
First Administrative StepsEdit
The Administrative Liaison, the representative for the Executive Branch in the Administrative Branch and vice versa will give the law to the Speaker of the Administration or Underspeaker. Negotiation may occur here as it's necessary for at least one of them to table the law or else the law will fail right then and there.
It should be noted that if there are less than five people in the Administrative Branch the law passes automatically.
Tabling to the AdministratorsEdit
Then if either the Speaker or Underspeaker likes the law (or if they don't like it, they simply think the Administrative Branch should have a say on it) they will table it to the Administrative Branch for them to vote on. They may give an introduction to the law or their own statement on why the law should be passed or not passed in their opinion.
Second Administrative StepsEdit
Then all the members of the Administrative Branch vote on the law with the Speaker being the last to vote. They are not supposed to deliberate on the law for a long time so that it passes quickly. The Administrative Liaison also gets one vote. If the Administrators approve of it with a majority in favor, the law is finalized. If not, then the law fails.
If the Administrative Branch passes the law the Major Executive will add the law or amendment to a current law to this wiki. That wraps up the process of actually passing the law.
Further Dealings of the LawEdit
Once the law is set up it may seem like the process is done but in reality, it never is. The courts will always have a role in interpreting and defining the law for the future and the Executive Branch will always have a role in implementing the law, enforcing it, and proposing adjustments to laws that don't work anymore. The process goes on and on just like the Triumvirate.
