Political Structure & Political Parties  -  (WIP)

 

The Qardino & the Council of Clergy

The main purpose of the Qardino is to act as the symbolic heads of state, as well as the traditional heads of the Varushi faith. They deal with matters mostly concerning the Varushi faith, and can seek assistance from the Council of Clergy in Wartakk for guidance if need be. This doesn’t mean that the Qardino have no political say. The Qardino does have access to reserve powers that can be enacted in times of national crisis if the President isn’t able to properly perform their duties. These powers are allowed to be revoked by the National Congress if they are deemed to being improperly utilized.

 

The President

The President is the Executive Head of Qardania. The president is entitled to all powers granted him/her under Qardanian code and law, the president has the power to veto decisions by the National Congress, unless at least 60% of representatives and Ministers made the decision. The President is the head of the Qardanian armed forces. The President is answerable to the Qardino during times of impeachment or national crisis.

 

The District Governor

The District Governor is appointed by the President to play the role as Mayor of Wartakk, as well as to be able to appoint Ministers to the House on behalf of the Capital. The District Governor also acts as a representative for Wartakk in the National Assembly.

If the President were to resign, die in office or otherwise be removed from office, the District Governor would become President as well as continue his duties as District Governor for 6 months until an election can be organized, or just until the next election cycle, if it's less than 6 months away. The District Governor can also appoint a temporary replacement in this case if he so desired, and wanted to focus on running the country as President.

 

Provincial Governors

A Provincial Governor is the Executive official of a Province, and head of the Provincial government. They are entitled to certain powers given to them under Qardanian code and law. They are elected every 4 years, and have no term limit.

 

The National Congress

The National Congress is a bicameral legislative body which currently hosts 213 representatives and Ministers. 30 in the National Assembly. 183 in the House of Ministers.

They share the same chambers, but meet at separate times. The only times they both meet is when impeachment is on the table, and for various other emergency actions.

 

The House of Ministers

Provincial Governors appoint Ministers to The House of Ministers based on overall population, 1 Minister for every 500,000 people, regardless if they're citizens or Immigrants working to become citizens. To cut down the power of the capital (Wartakk) in political say, the amount of Ministers that are appointed by the District Governor are cut in half (rounded up).

The number of representatives used be based on every 250,000 people, but was changed in 1898 due to a rapidly growing population, and the overcrowding of the House.

 

The National Assembly

The National Assembly includes 2 appointed representatives for each province, each one appointed by the Provincial Governor, and 2 elected representatives from each province voted on every 3 years. In Wartakk, their power is once again halved, the District Governor becomes the representative for Wartakk in the Assembly, along with another representative elected by the city of Wartakk.

 

Election and Appointment Cycles

 

Presidential Election Cycle

Every 6 years. No term limit, unless approval rating falls below 30%, in which the President would not be allowed to run for re-election.

Provincial Governor Election Cycle

Every 4 years. No term limit.

National Assembly Election and appointment cycle

Every 3 years. No more than 2 consecutive terms for appointed representatives. However, previously appointed representatives can still run for an elected seat. Elected representatives have no term limit.

Vulqan Party (V) - Despite being a minor Political Party, the Vulqan Party is the second longest lasting party in Qardania, being founded in Qardania after the conversion of Qardania from a Kingdom to a Republic. This parties platform used to fight for more power in the hands of the Qardino, and they still somewhat do. Today however, many politicians join the party as a symbolic gesture of the relationship between the Qardino and the democratic system. Their have been a few Vulqans in possession of elected office, but they mainly take up appointed positions. It’s called the Vulqan party, because the Qardino that first diminished their power in order to give way for a more democratic system was the 3rd Qardino of Vulqan, with the patriarch being Triniaq Vulqan and the matriarch being Marria Vulqan.

 

Qardanian National Front (QNF) - A small, and mostly ignored far right political party that very rarely earns national government positions.


Varushi Communist Party (VCP) - A communist party in Qardania that has very little support or recognition
