Opinion: Has Parliament finally reached its full potential?

Struggles appear to be an issue of the past in Dracul’s National Parliament; something most micronational parliaments report and display publicly all the time, with pleas of more members, votes of no confidence, and resignations.

The issue of “yes men” as they’re called, where individuals neglect to review a bill, then vote yes to say they’ve done a job was a common practice among several former parliamentary members, which caused great distress and concern.

Dracul’s Parliament now consists of the most active and dedicated number of Parliamentary members Dracul has ever witnessed. Not only is every region represented, but all members have engaged in actual debate, summary introduction of their bills, and taken action as necessary. Now, there are rare occasions of members missing session; an issue that used to be annoyingly repetitive.

Senator Scott Jeanes of Breco Territory has mentioned several times of his displeasure in seeing a disorganized and short staffed Parliament. President Luke when asked stated he never felt this day would come, but was glad to be proven wrong.

“From 2018 to this last month, things have always gone wrong in the Parliament.” said President Luke. “Former members would never look at bills and just randomly vote, members would never show up, several members never introduced bills, and debate was rarely heard of.”

“I’d say last night’s senate session went quite well. Probably the best session we’ve ever had, believe me. It was also quite successful for the Blue Party, as the results of Bill 39 and 40 went the way we pushed for.” said Senator Karl Frederick. “We got the new immigration requirements to pass and the attempted infringement on religious freedom to fail. Was truly great.”

With things appearing to go in the right direction, the checks and balances in Dracul now seem to have a chance at success. Parliament elections in each state are expected to take place this month on February 7th, with ballots going out to all registered voters.
