Managing Emergencies: 

The Executive Council and The Executive Ombudsman  

The Executive Council

There are occasions when emergencies arise that must be handled quickly before the process of public decision-making can take place, and, there are also major issues beyond the scope of any individual Expert Agency. Such matters are handled by the Executive Council, which is composed of the Heads of the Expert Agencies. The Executive Council also assigns the areas of policy jurisdictions to the various Expert Agencies and mediates among them.


The Executive Council must transfer the handling of emergency matters to the appropriate Expert Agency and Policy Jury as promptly as possible.


In cases of major public emergencies such as military attacks, revolutions and major natural disasters, the head of the appropriate Expert Agency will contact the Executive Ombudsman. The Executive Ombudsman will direct the necessary emergency measures and immediately call together the Executive Council to handle the emergency. The Executive Council can call an Emergency Referendum as soon as possible.

The Executive Ombudsman

The Executive Ombudsman handles urgent emergencies that require immediate responses until the Executive Council can convene. The Executive Ombudsman also chairs the proceedings of the Executive Council, but has no other powers. The public elects the Executive Ombudsman to a single five-year term. During emergencies, or as long as they have emergency powers, the Executive Ombudsman has the authority to command any emergency services, including the military, until the Executive Council can meet to take control.


The Executive Ombudsman is not the head of the State, indeed, the Head of the State is the public, and there is no individual with such a title.
