Propositions

Confederation of Greater Princia

The Confederation of Greater Princia was a proposition by the United Democratic Party (the ruling party at the time) to equalise the autonomy of the colonies of the Principality of Greater Princia, and to create a unified state of equality and democracy. This proposition was passed by Prince Joshua, much to the dislike of the Princian citizens who had no say inthe matter. This proposition was the main reason for the downfall of the United Democratic Party - it was proposed and passed without a vote of the public. As a result, the United Democratic Party became the party with the least members in government (the "minor" party).

People's Confederation of Greater Princia

The People's Confederation of Greater Princia was a change proposed by the Princian Party of Socialists (the ruling party at the time) to change the political structure of the confederation. It would remove the positions of Minister and Head Minister, in exchange for a council with an all-powerful leader at its head - reducing the Prince to a ceremonial role, stripping him of all his current powers. Everything would be state-controlled: the farming, goods, imports, exports, etc. Princia would be turned into a communist dictatorship much like the former USSR. This proposition was outright rejected by the public, with over 90% voting against it.

Union of the Albion Grandceltic

The Union of the Albion Grandceltic was a change proposed by the Princian Party of Socialists (the ruling party at the time) to repeal the 2019 Confederative Act, effectively dissolving the Confederation of Greater Princia - and replacing it with a more democratic, up-to-date form of government. The only downside was that it was a form of government that made Princia more susceptible to corruption and the like. A referendum was planned to be held on the 7th December 2019, 7 days after its proposal - but for unknown reasons Prince Joshua cancelled the referendum and subsequently rejected the proposal altogether. A new referendum was later planned to be held on the same date by Prince Joshua for the repealment of the 2019 Confederative Act, but a new confederation like the Union of the Albion Grandceltic would not be established in the Confederation of Greater Princia's place if the repealment was to pass. The Princian government was also suspended until further notice due protests and political turmoil. The Princian Coup D'état soon followed.
