Nomination of Matthew for Vice-Chair

The Chair re-nominated incumbent Matthew of Uber-Esse for Vice-Chair, citing continued experience during the role and that Leon Montan was defeated for Vice-Chair nomination.

Adam I of Adammia raised a complaint to the Quorum.

I would like to raise a complaint. During the recent election, it was my understanding that a certain delegate who should have been a key endorser of my campaign was unable to do so due to a conflict of interest arising from the fact that they were due to be nominated as Mr. Dean’s Vice-Chair in the likely event that Mr. Montan’s nomination failed. I will not name this delegate so as not to embarrass them, but the Chair knows who I am talking about. It now transpires that the Chair will be nominating a different delegate as Vice-Chair. Therefore, this delegate – and therefore, my campaign – were misled and we lost out on a key endorsement, which now appears to have all been for nothing. Whilst I would never believe that Chair acted maliciously, I must protest at this decision that I would argue put the Chair’s campaign at an unfair electoral advantage. I was more than happy to accept the original decision, as I fully believed that the delegate in question would have made a fantastic Vice-Chair. However, in going back on his word, the Chair has indicated that the delegate’s abstention from endorsing was for nothing. Therefore I will be voting against this nomination in protest.

Adam I of Adammia, 9 January 2021

Matthew of Uber-Esse responded, informing that the nation of the delegated that he referred voted for Adam I anyways and accusing Adam I of lying. Adam I responded back, stating that the delegate mentioned was planning to endorse him personally, but instead the burden of responsibility was handled by the secondary delegate too late in the election process, therefore having a decrease/no affect towards the election. Matthew later responded, stating that the delegate in question was never guaranteed the Vice-Chairmanship. Matthew also justified his renewal through a statement given to the Quorum:

As many as you know, I had intended to leave the GUM for a year or so, to focus on my upcoming A-Level exams and the start of university. Following the cancellation of the exams last week, my reason for taking a break is no longer needed, so I look forward to staying in the organisation. Following the rejection of Leon Montan last week, combined with my sudden availability, I have offered my services as Vice-Chair to Jack for another 6 months, and I’m glad he has chosen to take them up. I know that he did have other candidates in mind following Leon’s rejection, who I had also endorsed privately, so I am extremely grateful that I have been given this opportunity again over these excellent other choices. As someone who was at the heart of engineering Jack’s campaign, I believe I’m in the best position to help in the delivery of his platform as Vice-Chairman. After serving in the organisation as Vice-Chair under Thomas and Newton, I also believe I have the experience to help Jack in navigating the organisation and micronational community. I appreciate that after a year of me being Vice-Chair, the Quorum does need to have another say in my continuation, and it’s for the best that I only continue should I be reconfirmed, even if this vote would usually be unnecessary. It would be an honour for the Quorum to reconfirm me as Vice-Chair this evening and to serve another 6 months in this organisation which I have grown to love, and will work to see prosper.

Matthew of Uber-Esse, 9 January 2021

Anthony Clark stepped in with a point of order, stating that it would be disorderly to accused someone to be dishonest and asking if the Vice-Chair was indeed in-order with the first reply to Adam. Matthew later retracted the claims that Adam was lying, however accused Adam of misleading the Quorum. The Chair concurred, however asked both parties to refrain from such allegations in the Quorum.

Adam I then responded, confirming that the delegate in question was never promised the Vice-Chairmanship, however it was considered that they would be offered in a situation when Leon Montan’s nomination failed; henceforth not endorsing Adam. Adam, however, affirmed that he was not suggesting that the Chair acted out of malice. Matthew responded back, stating that the delegate in question did not join the campaign on the terms that he would be offered Vice-Chair and that he was an important member of the campaign. Matthew later invited Adam to exchange privately in direct messages.

Adam I rejected the fact that he was attempting to mislead the quorum, however noted the short timespan between him becoming campaign staff and the doubts of Montan winning the Vice-Chairmanship. Both James Frisch and Anthony Clark voiced their concerns about the now third term of Matthew, with the latter citing new energy needed and a regular rotation of senior posts. Sophia Albnia of Nordale defended the renewal, citing that Matthew’s Vice-Chairmanship was stable and he is competent as Vice-Chair.

Matthew noted those concerns and promised that it would be his last term as Vice-Chair.

The Chair motioned for Matthew of Uber-Esse to be renewed as Vice-Chair.

Diplomatic talks with the Cupertino Alliance

The Chair proposed the permission to initiate diplomatic talks with the Cupertino Alliance (CA).

Adam I questioned the proposals that the Chair plans to move forward, as well as the benefits that they have to the GUM. The Chair later responded with a statement:

I intend to begin by creating a venue for myself to speak formally with my counterpart, followed by exchanges regarding how to better the community, how we can best use the venue for both organisations, and etc. This initial stage will set the foundations for further cooperation, such as joint projects or legislation to be adopted by both organisations, that will be passed by the quorum for approval of such first. I believe this can benefit the GUM and the wider community for the obvious benefits of any micronational projects or legislation, but their significance made greater by the number of nations involved.

Jack Dean of Essexia, 9 January 2021

Matthew Xia and Logan Ross, of Yu-Xia and Aenopia respectively, supported the motion, citing that a partnership would be bilaterally beneficial. Adam I then questioned the projects that the Chair plans to predict happening with the CA, which the Chair responded with “[a project] like sister cities… [and] joint legislation”. Logan Ross also proposed the member remark system used in the Cupertino Alliance could also be used in the GUM.

The Chair motioned for the Chair to be permitted to initiate diplomatic talks with the Cupertino Alliance.

GUM Politan server

The Chair proposed that the GUM Politan (informal space for delegates) channel be spun-off to a separate server, citing the decrease in formality due to Politan discussion spilling into other channels.

Adam I opposed the plan, citing previous debates that the GUM being too decentralized, as well as proposing that the problem of informality was due to lack of enforcement from other Chairs. Adam notes that violations of decorum was excused by previous administrations, including infractions by senior GUM officials, and pointing that the lax enforcement was the real issue. Patrick I of Paravia concurred with Adam, adding on that a separate server would be a hassle for delegates. Swena of Theodia also concurred, providing a statement to the Quorum:

I am always a proponent of the UNIX Philosophy of “Do One Thing, And Do It Well.” The purpose of the GUM’s primary official server should be for primary official business, and nothing more. This helps to keep things simple and focused in the primary server; and helps to keep the additional, less-formal servers focused on their respective topics and duties.

I believe the aforementioned concerns over balkanization are unwarranted — all servers are in the same app, and we can easily create folders to group them together. It is trivial to move between them, and notifications are unified.

Swena of Theodia, 9 January 2021

The Chair motioned to move the GUM Politan and other informal channels into a new GUM Politan server.

Sandus invitation

The Chair proposed to reinvite the State of Sandus to the Grand Unified Micronational through a letter sent by the Chair, citing that they would be an asset towards the GUM.

This was supported by various delegates, including Adam I, Terry of Essexia, and others, citing the long history of the nation, and benefits of the membership towards the community. Sophia Albnia of Nordale requested that the Grand Unified Micronational as a whole apologize to Sandus, citing the unfair treatment and inconveniences given by the organization towards a nation such as Sandus over the past few years. This was opposed by the Vice-Chair, pointing out that the Chair shouldn’t have to apologize for actions by previous administrations. Various delegates, including Ms. Albnia noted the fact that the organization as a whole would apologize.

Cameron I of Ikonia requested the Chair moved the logo of the letter to the left. This was done by the Chair.

The Chair motioned for Sandus to be re-invited to apply for GUM membership.

Addendum: Sandus apology

Luxor of Mercia opposed the invitation, considering that it was not the practice of the GUM to invite member states, adding on that Sandus should have applied within the past four years. Adam I noted the fact that the letter won’t include automatic membership, and argued that the GUM needs to invite them back to prove that the GUM has changed. Luxor responded, stating that Sandus is aware on how the GUM operates, and should’ve noted the changes by new administrations. However, Adam I brought up that various politicians of Sandus have been against GUM administration for a long period of time.

Swena of Theodia offered a solution to the debate, suggesting to send an apology towards Sandus, ensuring that their re-application would be viewed favorability. Adam I noted that Sandus would only re-apply if there was an formal invitation to do so.

Swena created 2 non-binding informal polls in the Quorum using reactions on the addition of an apology to the invitation.

Nomination of Leon Montan for Vice-Chair

Newly-elected Jack Dean’s running mate Leon Montan was up for confirmation by the quorum for the position of Vice Chair. Logan Ross of the Empire of Aenopia supported the nomination, citing his relations with him in NADU.

Sertor Valentinus objected the nomination, citing an incident when Mr. Montan disclosed private information regarding a former secretary without their consent, leading to their departure from the community. Adam I and Shiro of Adammia and Zenrax respectively opposed the nomination, citing the lack of public standing justified for a position like the GUM Vice-Chair.

In a defence toward Montan’s nomination, both Matthew of Uber-Esse and Leon Montan made statements.

… However now that the future of the Chairmanship has been decided another great decision falls upon this Quorum—the future of the Vice-Chairmanship. My potential successor, and the man that will be proposed to you today is a very controversial figure. There is no doubt that many have concerns over his integrity due to past and ongoing misdemeanours and unprofessionalism—and I share these concerns as someone who cares about the GUM and its image as a diplomatic and prestigious organisation. However, I’d also be a hypocrite not to defend Mr Montan to an extent. Many people shared the same concerns about me, almost exactly a year ago, when Thomas Bainbridge chose me as his Vice-Chair over Jonathan Austen. It takes great courage to choose an Essexian over an Austenasian Emperor in any capacity, let alone the Vice-Chairmanship of the GUM, and I will forever be grateful to Tom for giving me the opportunity, for it was with that opportunity that I was able to prove my worth and serve the GUM for the past year. Sure, I haven’t been without my issues, and Leon certainly won’t be either. But my point is—sometimes it’s good to be given a chance. I also appreciate that giving someone a chance with the Vice-Chairmanship is a tremendous gamble—so if Leon is rejected today because you feel he is not suitable, that is understandable, and I’m sure Jack will hold no ill-will towards the Quorum and will pick a more suitable candidate. We support whatever action it choses to take, and if it is so obliged as to decline this nomination for the Vice-Chairmanship, then we will all understand that. Whatever happens, the Vice-Chairmanship is an important role that builds the organisation, but one that can help to build a micronational career as it has done with mine…

Matthew of Uber-Esse, 2 January 2021

Thank you, Mr. Chair. Although I obviously have a bias, I am the one being nominated, I encourage the Quorum of the Grand Unified Micronational to vote in favor of my nomination. I do admit that I am a controversial figure, and have done things within this community that are subpar when it comes to professionalism, but I think that I can be a capable Vice Chair- Matthew was confirmed on a slim margin and was still a very, very, very capable Vice Chair. I believe that I have the capability to preside over meetings of the Quorum when the Chair is not present, which can be seen through my contributions to groups like the Cupertino Alliance, through my position as their Minister for Membership Attainment, and micronations like New Virginia. I thank you all for this opportunity, and I cede the floor.

Leon Montan of Aenopia, 2 January 2021

The Chair moved a motion for Leon Montan to be confirmed for the position of Vice-Chairman of the Grand Unified Micronational.

  • Support – 3
  • Abstain – 9
  • Oppose – 13

The motion was defeated. Matthew of Uber-Esse would later stay as Vice-Chair.

Nomination of Anthony Clark for Supreme Justice

The Chair nominated Anthony Clark of Abelden for the position of Supreme Justice, citing his micronational career within the field of law, as well as his contributions towards the charter commission. This was echoed by former Chair Newton von Uberquie, and many other delegates.

Anthony Clark gave a statement regarding the position to the Quorum.

Firstly, I thank the delegate for Uberessenberg kindly. I am very grateful for his support.

I’d like to tell you a little about why I think I’m suited for this office, and what I’d do if confirmed.

My micronational speciality is law, and has been for many years. I’m one of the community’s most experienced judges, litigators, and legislative drafters. One of my most significant projects was the near-200 page Abeldane Code. Though I’ve no macronational qualifications, I have an extensive knowledge of many fields of law.

I’d like to bring in a simple and clear set of rules for the Court, so that everyone knows what to expect. I want to make it as accessible as possible, so you don’t need lots of legal knowledge to use its services. A separate long document of procedural rules might be desirable from a legal point of view, but my experience suggests it would also alienate delegates. I don’t want anyone thinking the court is too complicated for them.

So, I think that charter reform is the best way to do this. The current section about the court is clumsy and full of unneeded detail. I’d work with the Commission to streamline it and make it less confusing. My key aim is for the charter to unambiguously set out the powers, duties, and processes of the court, in as few words as possible.

With the permission of the Chair, I’d be delighted to answer any questions you have about my experience, knowledge, and plans.

I cede.

Creation of the Secretary of Asia Affairs

The Chair presented the idea of the creation of the Secretary of Asia Affairs to focus on the long-neglected group of member nations located in Asia, to increase representation of the Asian sector in the GUM, as well as to assist in the organization of Asia-focused events. Cameron I of Ikonia, Swena of Theodia, and other delegates supported the nomination.

Adam I of Adammia and Anthony Clark of Abelden opposed the idea, citing the lack of members in the Asian sector to justify such office and that GUM leadership already has many secretaries. The former argued that some of the mandate for the proposed Secretary can be better managed into other pre-existing secretarial positions.

Swena of Theodia, however, objected to the argument of lack of members in Asia, mentioning that the pending withdrawal of an GUM member in Asia due to neglect in their time zone.

The Chair moved a motion to establish the Secretary of Asia Affairs.

The motion was passed.

Creation of three GUM Mentor roles

The Chair proposed the creation of three GUM Mentor roles, to oversee the “Help Joining the GUM” initiative as well as aid potential GUM member. This idea was objected by Adam I of Adammia, referring to past attempts in creating a mentor programs, which later led to lack of interest between both the mentors and mentees. Furthermore, Adam I argued that it would be better for the Micronational Development Secretary to informally work with potential mentees as opposed to a formal mentorship program; an argument agreed by Swena of Theodia.

Cristian Dobrev of Plushunia supported the idea, adding that the full intergration of the “Help Joining the GUM” program would further activity towards the latter project and to increase the quality of the application base to the GUM.

Adam I noted the system of how the Quorum needed to confirm every lobby moderator and mentor, remarking it to be “too bureaucratic”. This was supported by Newton von Uberquie and later Adam I reminded the Quorum that the Micronational Development Seceretary holds the power to appoint people regardless of Quorum consent. Upon hearing the reminder, the Chair cancelled the motion.

Dean Cabinet confirmation

The Chair moved to confirm the proposed cabinet for the Grand Unified Micronational, consisting of:

  • Safeguarding and Welfare Officer – Cedar (no change)

Nomination for Daniel Roscoe for Secretary of Statistical Research

The Chair moved to appoint Daniel Roscoe for the office of Secretary of Statistical Research.

Cameron I of Ikonia supported the motion, citing his work under the Roscoe Statistics- later Statistic-Dime corporation. This was echoed by Sertor Valentinus and Isaac Richards. Jayden Lycon opposed the nomination, citing a previous security incident. Logan Ross of Aenopia questioned if Daniel Roscoe would have enough time for this position considering Roscoe was also running for Chair of the Cupertino Alliance. This was seconded by Matthew Xia of Yu-Xia.

The Chair moved to appoint Daniel Roscoe for the office of Secretary of Statistical Research.

  • Support – 11
  • Abstain – 9
  • Oppose – 0

The motion was passed. Swena of Theodia later suggested to move towards reaction-based voting for the rest of the cabinet, which was supported by a number of delegates. However, due to the Quorum having discussed 2 applications, it would be unfair to switch the method of voting for the rest of the Cabinet.

Nomination of Emperor Terry for Secretary of Events and Summits

The Chair moved to appoint Emperor Terry for the office of Secretary of Events and Summits.

Jayden Lycon of Iustus supported the nomination, citing his work during the previous 24 Hour Quorum. This was concurred by Jan Stastny of the Rednecks Republic. The Chair later asked the Quorum if they preferred to vote on consecutive motions, skipping the discussion between each nomination. This was supported by Jayden Lycon of Iustus and Anthony Clark of Abelden, but was opposed by Sertor Valentinus of West Sayville.

Isaac Richards of Iceni questioned the summits for which they participated in, for which the nominee responded with:

  • GUM Chair/Vice-Chair physical meeting
  • GUM 24 Hour Quorum
  • GUM Summit 2020
  • 1st Essexia-Millania Summit
  • A short meeting between the Chair and Vice-Chair

James Frisch of the Serene Beaconite Republic later asked Issac Richards to send his questions regarding candidates before voting concludes.

Noting the wishes from the Chair, James Frisch of the Serene Beaconite Republic formally resigned from his role of Archivist. Due to this, the motion was cancelled.

Cupertino Alliance Partnership

The Chair proposed to formally establish talks within the Cupertino Alliance, citing their potential between the GUM and allowing the GUM to communicate with the Cupertino Alliance when needed. The Chair proposed to establish communications within the Cupertino Alliance, but was later postponed to next week due to the length of the session.

Charter Commission Update

The Chair gave the floor to Anthony Clark of Abelden to give an update regarding the Charter Commission.

I don’t have a long statement to make because I realise the urgency of the Quorum. However, alongside the Supreme Justice, my aim is to help complete the massive Charter Reform that began while I was Chair, and aid in any way in rectifying the mess in the statutory code alongside the normal duties of the Associate Justice.
