MOP-1

Title No binding decisions for absent members by default
Sponsor Pirate Party Netherlands
member of Pirate Party Gijs Peskens, acting International Coordinator of Piratenpartij (Pirate Party Netherlands)
Contact data internationaal@piratenpartij.nl
proposal ballot(s)

(Motion to) ask the General Assembly and Board not to make any decisions regarding members unable to be present unless explicitly requested by said members or regarding issues not requiring direct attention.

reasoning and motivation Considering that:
  • for the sound, democratic functioning of Pirate Parties International it is required that members are able to inform themselves,
  • it is preferable for many members to be physically present at General Assemblies,
  • this General Assembly has been announced no earlier than XXX (sic),
  • the Statutes clearly state a General Assembly is to be announced at least 5 weeks in advance both by invitation to members and by publication on the website,
  • decisions /do/ need to be made where further delay is unacceptable, and
  • credibility concerning the General Assembly and PPI is at stake when democracy is lacking within the decision making process

MOP-2

member of Pirate Party Gijs Peskens, acting International Coordinator of Piratenpartij (Pirate Party Netherlands)
Contact data internationaal@piratenpartij.nl

(Motion to) alternatively, to hold an online General Assembly within 4 months, for which the proposals and discussions will be handled beforehand in public view, and the actual assembly will be a mere matter of voting.

reasoning and motivation

see MOP-1

MOP-3c

Title At least one online GA per year
Sponsor Pirate Party Switzerland
member of Pirate Party Denis Simonet
Contact data

denis.simonet@piratenpartei.ch

proposal ballot(s)

We propose to decide that there will be one or more online GAs per year.

reasoning and motivation

The GA should make long term decisions, so we should not vote on "when will the next online GA be" but on "how many of them shall we do in a given time period".



MOP-4

Title Lower Membership fees for smaller parties

member of Pirate Party Gregory Engels (local delegate)

proposal ballot(s)

to amend the proposed calculation for the base membership fees as follows:

"for parties with the membership count below 500 the basis fee is calculated as following: Membership number times HDI“


reasoning and motivation

This would take into account the small budget of newly found parties and those in formation. For the Pirate Party of Estonia this would mean a membership fee of 45,68 EUR, as we have 54 Members as of now.


MOP-5

Title Change the financial year to 1st Jan - 31st Dec
Sponsor Pirate Party Switzeland, Pirates Without Borders
Contact data Pat Mächler, pirate at valio.ch

reasoning and motivation The motion aims to

a) provide a frame that is not yet defined in the statutes b) which makes it possible to compare subsequent years among each other c) which provides enough time to the board till the next GA to create the required documents d) which provides enough time to the lay auditors to review the existing data for the next GA

MOP-6

Sponsor Pirate Party Switzeland, Pirates Without Borders
Contact data Pat Mächler, pirate at valio.ch
proposal ballot(s) Until the next GA, the current GA mandates the newly elected treasurer to report periodically on a 3-month basis (by the calendar quartals) to all members about the current state of the improvement of current and past accounting.
reasoning and motivation The motion aims to provide a mean to member to insist on a constant progress concerning the improvement of PPI's accounting.

MOP-6a

Sponsor Pirate Party Switzeland, Pirates Without Borders
Contact data Pat Mächler, pirate at valio.ch

Until the next GA, the current GA mandates the newly elected lay auditors to review the data provided on a 3-month basis and discusses it with the treasurer. These lay auditors are then obliged to send an opinion report to all PPI members within three weeks.

reasoning and motivation The motion aims to provide a mean to member to insist on a constant progress concerning the improvement of PPI's accounting.
