Petition for Court Decree

Recommended Posts

To the Lady Chief Justice of Stormark:

 

 

Your Ladyship,

 

On the Eleventh Day of the Month Valaheim in the Eighth Year of the Second Viking Age in the Second Epoch of Our Most Sovereign and Noble Viking Empire the Ríksrád Amendment Act of Year 8, which among others amended Article 29 of the Viking Law, became Law.

 

Article 29b of the Viking Law provides for the manner of election of the Imperial Chancellor. The same Article also provides that further provisions concerning the election of the Imperial Chancellor shall, subject to that Article, are to be laid down in the Rules and Standing Orders of the Althing. No Standing Order concerning the election of the Imperial Chancellor has, however, been made by the Althing.

 

Under Article 29b of the Viking Law the coming term of office of the Imperial Chancellor commences on the First Day of the Month Noatun, which is less than two weeks from now. Electing the Imperial Chancellor as well as providing for matters connected to such election will take at least one week, if not more. There is therefore, since drafting and enacting of a Standing Order by the Althing could take several weeks, not enough time to enact a Standing Order concerning the election of the Imperial Chancellor.

 

We, Harald Thorstein I the Generous Giver, The Eternal Sovereign Viking Emperor, do therefore hereby request you, to ensure a smooth election, to declare that the Law Speaker of the Althing may, subject to Article 29 of the Viking Law, may apply Udal Law to any and all matters concerning the election of the Imperial Chancellor.

 

Respectfully,

 

Harald Torsten I den Givmilde, genom Vikingalagarnas Nåd Evig och Enväldig Vikingakejsare av Vikingakejsardömet Stormark, och genom andra Höga Lagars Nåd Kung av Sina andra Riken och Kolonier.
