The First Part of the Kozanese Constitution

The modern Kozanese constitution was written when Kozan declared independence from Sweden in 1809. The constitution officially declared the Federal Kingdom of Kozan as a constitutional monarchy and delineates the national frame of the Kozanese government.

Preamble

Article 1: The System

All legislative powers established by the Monarch shall include a Prime Minister appointed by the Monarch, as well as a Parliament which includes a Senate and House of Representatives. The Representatives will be chosen every year that ends in an even number by the people of all provinces.

All chosen representatives must have attained an age of 25 years, been a citizen of Kozan for seven years, and be an inhabitant of the province they represent. The number of representatives for each province shall be enumerated for every 500,000 people in Kozan. When a vacancy occurs, elections will be held to fill those vacancies. The House of Representatives shall choose a speaker and other officers, who also have the power of impeachment against the Monarch and Prime Minister.

All chosen senators must have attained an age of 30 years, been a citizen of Kozan for ten years, and be an inhabitant of the province they represent.

The Parliament must assemble at least once a year. Such meetings will be on the First Monday in February unless a different day is appointed.

If a bill is expected to become a law, every law shall pass the House of Representatives and Senate before if the Prime Minister and Monarch decide it should be such law. If they approve they shall sign, if not it must be returned.
