    I would like to call to the citizen's attention that the current method of choosing governors is as follows:

    1. The first 3 governors are appointed by the Minister of the Interior
    2. Subsequent governors are appointed by the Council of Governors
    3. Starting the term after a governor position is created, that governor is elected, but new governors are still appointed by the council.
    By comparison, previous DG's have used this system:
    1. At the beginning of each term, at least 3 governors are elected, and as many as we reasonably believe might be needed for that term.
    2. Governors take control of cities / provinces in order of designation of their offices. For example, the person elected "governor #2" takes the 2nd city / province, "governor #3" takes the 3rd city / province, etc. After the city / province (state) is founded, then governors are elected for the specific city or state.
    3. If the number of governors elected ends up being too few, the President appoints additional governors.
    4. If the number of governors elected ends up being too many, the extra ones just don't have any work to do.
    As a member of the Court I'm trying not to suggest actual wording for amendments, other citizens would need to take on that responsibility if they want it changed.

    For reference the relevant law is:

    I agree with the current law toward this. This allows for both Citizien elcted governers, but also allows the game to be streamlined and move faster!

    What could be more streamlined than having the next governor already elected by the people? Then you don't even need to have an appointment, and the new governor can even anticipate building the city and lead the discussion on where to place it, what to build first, etc. instead of leaving that up to the DP.
