setting the Agenda

Procedural Motion:
PPNL: Change the order in which the motions will be processed. Move MO-11 before MO-1
Rationale: MO-11 if passed would move MO-1 to MO-7 to a negotiation track outside the GA, and therefor would no longer require MO-1 to MO-7 to be discussed today. Therefor it would make sense to discuss it beforehand.
for reference MO-11 "Motion: We call on the General Assembly to defer any policy motion to a proper treaty negotiation track."
Rationale * Given that an General Assembly has no time to give these subjects an adequate amount of attention or oversight.
    • Given that a treaty negotiation type of track allows all member parties to influence the substance adequately.
MO-1 to MO-7 would be affected.
  • Vote on procedural motion:
Yes: IT, TN, DE, CZ, CH, NL, NZ, FI, NO, CAT(0.5), CA, GR = (11.5)
No: = (0)
Abstain:RU, FR = (2)

The fee is calculated as follows: the actual HDI of a country is taken as a exponent to 500 to get the basis fee. This basis fee is multiplied with following factors: for each elected pirate on national level times two, for each elected member of a regional parliament times 1/5, and for each elected member on a local level times 1/10. This multiplied values are then added to the basis value.
(*) For the calculation it is non discriminatory if the pirate is holding a mandate in the executive or legislative brunch.
The fees are in Euro
