Final Provisions

Recommended Posts

One suggestion I have is something to the effect of, "All laws, treaties, and ordinances in effect before the ratification of the High Law shall remain in force, unless they contradict the provisions set forth in this document."

Yes, we will have to decide if all officials stay in their places, or we have new elections/appointments.

 

The High King, the Lady Chief Justice and the Members of the Althing should stay in place; all other officials should cease to hold office.
