Electing the Cabinet Using the Parliamentary Go-Ahead

Please read the following guidelines from RESOLUTION NUMBER 1:

47. The ten executives elect up to sixty full Cabinet Ministers using the "parliamentary go-ahead".

48. The International Parliament's ten executives agree to rank all names nominated by each of the other nine executives, thus guaranteeing that each of the ten executives elects 1/10th of the 60 cabinet ministers.

More detailed explanation below:

Only the ten elected Volunteer Executives of the International Parliament may elect Cabinet Ministers.

All new nominees who accept a position on the Cabinet after having been nominated by one of the ten Executives are to be given the "#1" placement and the Cabinet Ministry of their choice.

We have up to 60 names/titles for each Cabinet Ministry, and while you may use the USA Parliament's Cabinet titles as examples, that isn't a requirement for choosing a new Cabinet Ministry title. Many new precedents can be set.

The parliamentary go-ahead means that the executives in an elected entity give the approval in advance in the election of all new nominees who are nominated by the other executives on the committee. Once the majority (50% plus one) of executives give the go-ahead to elect all new nominees with their own #1 ranking (tic), then whenever any executive nominates a new name, the name is automatically elected. That's because the majority of executives had all agreed to give the new nominee a #1 tic (tic = numeral/digit/i.e. 1, 2, 3 etc. are tics).

Once the parliamentary go-ahead is given, then the execs can take turns nominating new names. As all new names get elected in consecutive order, the top name (#1) on the list is moved down one spot to #2 and the new name is at the top spot. As each new name is elected, the process continues. The parliamentary go-ahead may be withdrawn at anytime by each executive, at which time a #1 isn't automatically awarded in that executive's column. In this case, the executive can review the name beforehand, and they may also change their rankings and customize the average of all ten executives more to their liking instead of automatically approving all new nominees with a #1 tic.

One executive may elect one or more names in consecutive order as long as the parliamentary go-ahead is in effect, they aren't required to "take turns", but should any executive insist that the nominations take turns one at a time, then each executive is guaranteed to elect exactly 10% of the Cabinet Ministers.

The parliamentary go-ahead allows for one executive to do all the nominating, and there is no slow down while waiting for approvals of the newer nominee(s) being elected, but should executives wish to take turns that will be slower than allowing multiple nominations by any one executive.

The #1 across the board gives all new nominees the #1 spot, but when numbers are mixed for the candidates, the rankings (tics) of all executives are averaged and the order of placement gets affected accordingly, the tics are averaged, and then the new Cabinet Ministers are then re-ranked consecutively based on the sum of the number of tics and the average of all the tics for each nominee.

For easy web page design, it's best to have several Cabinet Ministers names submitted at one time, than it is for a series of nominations submitted one by one. So the Vote Counters and web designers do welcome multiple nominations that are consecutively ranked over single nomination of names, one at a time.
