    Appointments and Absences

    Points to discuss for creating this article:

    These are the things that won in the polls -


    * Elected Officials can appoint deputies
    * Unoffical Absence - 3 days to be considered absent
    * Official Absence - Written absence (1 week max)
    * Deputy promotion/appointment for absent official

    I suggest we go with the DG 5 verbage with two changes to reflect above:
    -- deputies are appointed w/no restrictions
    -- Change how to declare an office vacant ( >3 days absent w/o notice, >7 days w/ notice)

    NOTE: Certain areas may need revision based on current discussions.
    Code:
    Article X   1. (Insert term length section here)
                2. All Executive and Legislative positions shall have a
                deputy. The Deputy will be permitted to conduct the
                affairs of the office as directed, or during a planned
                Absence of the elected official. If no instructions have
                been posted for an office within 24 hours of the upcoming
                Turn Chat, the deputy for that office may post the official
                instructions for the office.
    
                3. The Judiciary does not use deputies. In the event of an
                Absence, a pro-tem justice(s) may be appointed by the
                Chief Justice (or Judge Advocate if the Chief Justice if
                absent) and confirmed by the President and the 
                remaining justice if not also absent. If both the Chief 
                Justice and the Judge Advocate are absent, the Public 
                Defender may appoint pro-tems to the other seats,
                with Presidential approval.
    
                4. The President will appoint a citizen to any Vacant
                office. If a deputy exists for that office, the President 
                must appoint that citizen. This appointment may be 
                challenged by any citizen by that citizen posting a 
                confirmation poll within 24 hours of the appointment.
    
    
    CoL X.  (should match above)
    X.
      1. Deputies
        For all positions with deputies, the leader may appoint the 
        citizen of their choice as their deputy.
        
      2. Vacant Offices
        a. An official or Justice may declare themselves to be Absent for
           a period of time. This period may not exceed 1 week.  During 
           this time, the deputy or pro-tem will act with all power and 
           duties of that office, surrendering them to the official or 
           Justice when they return or at the end of the planned absence, 
           whichever comes first.
    
        b. Should an official fail to post in the DG forum for 3 days in 
           a thread related to their area without prior notice, the 
           Judiciary may declare that office Vacant.
    
        c. If a Justice has not posted on any active Judicial matter for 
           three days, the remaining Justices may declare the Justice 
           Vacant.  If all three Justices fail to post on any active 
           Judicial matter for 3 days, the President may declare all 
           Judicial offices Vacant, and immediately appoint a new Chief 
           Justice.

    Due to a lack of discussion, this will now go to the approval stage.

    Poll is here.
