Asgardia’s Parliament begins its second digital session Thursday, coming together for the second time online. This week, key agenda items for Members of Parliament include voting on acting ministers, the nation’s budget and the national symbols of Asgardia.
Approval of Acting Ministers
MPs will be voting on the candidacies of the ministers of the following committees: Finance, Science, Citizenship and Culture.
Following requests from Asgardia’s MPs, a fast procedure for approving proposed ministerial candidacies is expected to be adopted, speeding up the appointment process while maintaining a Parliamentary vote without calling for an official Parliamentary Sitting.
Act of National Currency and Basic Economic and Financial System Principals
Last year, Asgardia’s government worked thoroughly on developing its financial system principles, including drafting a budget for this year, holding an Economic Forum in Nice and introducing the voluntary Citizenship Fee. During this parliamentary session, Asgardia’s elected MPs will vote on the Act of National Currency and Basic Economic and Financial System Principles.
Flag, Anthem and Coat of Arms of Asgardia
In addition, the official national symbols of Asgardia – its flag, anthem and the coat of arms – will be voted on in accordance with Decree №8.
The Parliament of Asgardia held its first digital session on 10th-12th of October 2018 (3rd-5th of October 0002). This was the Parliament's first major sitting since the parliamentary session in Vienna on the 24th of June 2018 (07 of Asgard 0002).
