2008 - 2009 Parliament of the Imperial Republic of AH.com

Overview

The third Parliament of AH.com was elected on August 3, 2008 and convened on August 4, 2008.

14 Acts and one Resolution were passed: the 2008 Wiki Task Force Act, the Legislative Procedures Act, the Landsraad Committee Act, the Landsraad Act of 2008, the Electoral Officer Resolution, the Banking and Finances Act, the AH.comtropa Institute Committee Act, the Landsraad Elections Act of 2009, the Landsraad Amendment Act, the Powers of the Landsraad Act, the Dueling Act of 2009, the Parliament Security Act, the Bring your Elephant to work Act, the Great Library of AH.com Act, and the Banking Reform Act.

The 2008 Parliament was responsible for some of the most significant pieces of legislation yet from His Administratorness' Government, radically altering the system of government by creating both the Landsraad of AH.com and the Imperial Bank of AH.com. This Parliament has also been one of the most troubled, suffering from two coup attempts, the resignation of four Prime Ministers, the Crisis of 2008, a failed Constitutional Convention, and nearly being relegated to Shared Worlds by Ian.

This Parliament was dissolved on August 15, 2009.
