DECLINED PETITION
Asg 1, 01 / Jun 18, 17 15:21 UTC

Hello,

in the last week very strange things happend:

1. The voting period began before unity day (decree 6 overwrote decree 3)
2. There was no time to review the current draft of the constitution before the start of the referendum
3. There was no explicit opportunity to vote "no" in order so express, that the draft needs another review
4. The constitution in its current state has major flaws. This, for example, can be used to form a dictatorship out of Asgardia.
5. The constitution draft states that the voting is done by the end of unity day. But the voting will be opened for a longer time period.
6. Asgardian officials stated, that the outcome of the referendum will be ignored and the constitution wil still be adopted, regardless of the quorum of >50% that is stated in the draft of the constitution.

Each of these points are affronts to the democratic principles!

Therefore I demand the cancel of the current referendum and to declare the result null. Then to revisit the draft constitution to create a new draft which ensures, that democratic principles hold true and proper separation of power is ensured. Proposed changes can be found at

https://asgardia.space/en/forum/forum/constitution-132/topic/discussion-of-the-second-draft-constitution-6300/


I beg each citizen of Asgardia to sign this petition for a future that lies in our own hands and not in the hands of a few people  who want to dictate it.

Only the people have the power!

I agree, but decided to sign it today to get things moving, but if no change happens - no Agadia will happen!

Every Asgardian has to accept the constitution. A quota of 50 % is too few.

Asg 10, 01 / Jun 27, 17 20:36 UTC

The voting must be opened for a longer time, because of all the new Asgardians.So long as we get new Asgardians so long the voting must be opened.

Asg 10, 01 / Jun 27, 17 20:46 UTC

My opinion is, a quotum of 50% votings for constitution is definitely too few. Every Asgardian has to accept the constitution.

Asg 11, 01 / Jun 28, 17 22:01 UTC

They should have an "Agree" or "Disagree" tab on the constitution.

If someone disagrees with it, they must respond with a reason why not. Thats thw best way to figure out what to do or fix within the broken constitution.

The entire situation may very well be a sort of a beta test for the near future. Maybe a test launch of how to best go about this groundbreaking situation and make sure the bugs are ironed out before a lot more finances get invested. We should stay united ...

And once said official 'unofficial' committee is formed, the group would keep evidence of all official document changes, keep track of media events and all that is stated, etc. The committee could, say, find a lawyer (preferably a fellow Asgardian) and make sure were covered legally in case ...

I think we need to accept the Constitution as a first draft, then add referenda to it, as it itself states. Read the whole thing before you accept it. Worries of a dictatorship are nonsensical, especially in its current state. Asgardia has no assets or ability to make you ...

I agree that we should each accept the Constitution as a first draft. This is necessary to get things off the ground (pun intended). And, yes, please read the entire Constitution as written before attempting to change parts of it. Also read the proposed revisions. There are some ...

Not because it is a first draft that anything can serve. Small flaws are acceptable of course, but a sequence of flaws make it not viable. Take a look in it!

Exactly. I refuse to be forced to 'elect' a dictator or allow such ability to be possible

Asg 26, 01 / Jul 13, 17 11:35 UTC

I have voted for Consitution, because it is important to our founders and. However I have found Asgardia's Constitution rushed and surely will have to be reviewed as soon as possible, therefore singed this petition. In my humble opinion it is too long and complicated, but tell me I ...

For the record. I would like to withdraw my vote to ratify the constitution. I did so under duress, as it is obvious that the leaders do not intend to amend the Constitution to meet the expectations of the citizens, nor do they intend to grant citizenship to those ...

I won't vote for a fascist "constitution" with a dictator who can get rid of every government branch if the "Head of Nation" (or whatever you name it) if he doesn't like how think its members or if they oppose him. A better amendment would be besides the possibility of ...

Indeed, that feature in itself is against this very constitution.

For some obscure reason I couldn't sign this petition! I press the button, but when I reloaded the page, the count goes back as if I wouldn't sign it. It doesn't even published my previous comment. Doesn't I have rights if I don't sign for "that" """"constitution""""?

I support this petition - Chris Hawkes, UK.

(Especially given the announcement today that "voting" will be extended until 100,000 "votes" are recorded.)

Just like all new ideas that are formed, the grand idea it's self may be what a lot of people are looking for. When these ideas are broken down into stages to try and implement them, there will be disagreement. Tunnel vision can become an issue that many will ...

Im calling for a constitutional convention. This document needs work.

Jul 18, 01 / Aug 2, 17 04:08 UTC

When I signed it was under the impression that the constitution has sections allowing for amendments to be democratically added (Similar to the US Constitution). Was I mistaken?
