The UNCONSTITUTIONAL ROYAL DECREE
("additional law to Constitution", not an amendment)
How the current unconstitutional CCP-formed National Assembly and CCP-formed Government came to be, using the unconstitutional "additional law to the Constitution" (Royal Decree) of July 2004 that is NOT a Constitutional amendment:
If the objectives of the procedures stipulated in Articles 82 and 119-New of the Constitution cannot be achieved, the National Assembly at the request of the party that wins the most seats in the National Assembly, shall proceed with a package vote to elect a President and Vice-Presidents of the National Assembly, as well as Chairpersons and Vice-Chairpersons of the Commissions of the National Assembly and simultaneously hold a vote of confidence in the Royal Government.
The package voting shall be conducted without debate or discussion and no explanation is required after the result of the package voting is released.
Members of the National Assembly may only vote, in favour of or against the package list submitted by the oldest Member of the National Assembly. The package voting shall be conducted by a show of hands.
The irregularities include voting that is (i) by the sole public raising of hands (ii) with absolutely no debate allowed and (iii) in the same NA session with same unconstitutional voting process as casting the vote of confidence for the entire Government Cabinet posts.
The Royal Decree was politically expedient but manifestly, prima facie unconstitutional, particularly in its violation of due process and “liberal multiparty democracy” principles.
