 ===== The Abstention Bill of 2009 ===== ===== The Abstention Bill of 2009 =====
  
-After the [[2009 Procedures and By-Laws Bill]] passed Parliament, MP [[Jimbrock]] (FFF) introduced a bill to change the function of "​Abstain"​ votes in Parliament. ​ The bill was introduced on September 18 and amounted to a modification of the [[Legislative Procedures Act]] and a change to Parliamentary precedent. ​ MPs [[Benkarnell]] (ESP) and [[Stalin'​s Pipe Organs]] (PRSP) objected most to the bill's second provision mandating a weeklong postponement in case of a tie vote; SPO convinced Acting President [[Hashasheen]] to pledge a veto should the bill pass with this provision.  MP [[Krall]] (BWS) gave the most eloquent speech against the bill, arguing that it could result in Parliament passing bills for which there was no strong support. ​ Jimbrock was persuaded to withdraw the bill on September 21.+After the [[2009 Procedures and By-Laws Bill]] passed Parliament, MP [[Jimbrock]] (FFF) introduced a bill to change the function of "​Abstain"​ votes in Parliament. ​ The bill was introduced on September 18 and amounted to a modification of the [[Legislative Procedures Act]] and a change to Parliamentary precedent. ​ MPs [[Benkarnell]] (ESP) and [[Stalin'​s Pipe Organs]] (PRSP) objected most to the bill's second provision mandating a weeklong postponement in case of a tie vote.  MP [[Krall]] (BWS) gave the most eloquent speech against the bill, arguing that it could result in Parliament passing bills for which there was no strong support. ​ Jimbrock was persuaded to withdraw the bill on September 21.
