Country Administration (later shorten to Administration) tab on the My country displays the country laws.
- Name and type of the law
- When it was proposed
- Status (accepted, pending, rejected)
- Link where you can check details of that law proposal
Congress members of the country in question can additionally see an option to resign from his/her position (the "resign" button), number how many laws he proposed (maximum two per mandate) and a button "propose a law".
If a Congress member clicks on the propose a law button, a drop-down menu with the list of all laws that can be proposed will be displayed.
If the Country President clicks on the propose a law button, a drop-down menu with the list of all laws that can be proposed will be displayed.
The country Dictator, similarly as the Country President, can additionally set up the campaign of the day, assign (and remove) a citizen to one of the country titles and propose an unlimited number of laws. The difference is that Dictator has a wider range of laws on his/her disposal.
How Laws Are Voted
For every proposed law, there will be a Debate link for the Congress members/President/Dictator to specify a discussion area.
Like stated before, the Congress Members can propose only 2 laws in a mandate, while the Presidents/Dictators can propose an unlimited number of laws.
If the law's voting process has not been finished, the same type of law cannot be proposed.
The voting process period for each law is 24 hours. An exception to this rule has been added on the end of September 2010 when Buy Constructions was declared special law - In these cases, the President can propose multiple laws in parallel. A second buy construction law can be proposed at the same time, but it costs Gold to propose it and its voting period lasts for one hour. If the voting period of the second one is finished, another special one (costs Gold, voting time of one hour) can be proposed.
In order for a law to pass, the majority of votes must be in-favor (in case of a tie, the law is considered to be rejected), even if only one vote has been expressed.
An exception is the President Impeachment law, that requires 66% in-favor votes out of the expressed votes.
The President can also vote the proposed laws. So, basically, the President and the Congress Members can vote once for each proposed law, but the laws that they can propose are different.
Since Day 3,979, a timestamp was added in the page of each law, denoting the exact time that law was proposed.
