The Office's Analysis

Aiming to repeal GA 209 "World Assembly Trade Rights", the at-vote resolution lays out its convincing arguments for doing so in a comprehensive and well-written manner. Particularly concerning is the target resolution's inadequately general prohibition on trade sanctions, ultimately working against the WA's tool of choice ‒ heavy trade embargoes ‒ for ensuring compliance by member states. This, backed by other flaws in it, as competently pointed out by the repeal at vote, namely contradictory mandates in the equal treating of trade partners effectively voiding the guaranteed right to trade zones, warrants a repeal of the original resolution. As the repeal's author themselves is already working on a replacement for the target, we see no reason not to substitute the flawed original with this better version; thus, OWL recommends voting FOR the at-vote resolution, "Repeal 'World Assembly Trade Rights'".

Tepertopia is a Deputy Chair of the South Pacific and a member of OWL Senior Staff.

Tepertopia wrote:I believe the flaws pointed out in the target resolution ‒ especially the clause effectively voiding the WA-mandated trade sanctions against member states that don't comply to WA law (which in my eyes is a perfectly reasonable punishment to impose for enforcing the basic duties of member states) ‒ are indeed severe enough to consider repealing it. As the author of the proposal at hand has already taken up to drafting a replacement for the target which would patch these holes, I am confident that passing this repeal and implementing a fresh replacement would be for the best of the WA in the long term.

New Goldman is a TSP Legislator and a member of OWL Junior Staff.

New Goldman wrote:Observing and taking notes on the original resolution, I will have to agree with what Tepertopia stated today. Mandated sanctions are just too extreme. I mean, you could give a nation a stern warning to not do something again, but launching a full scale sanction, or even an embargo, would be an attack on the right of that nation to speak up and defend it's stance. This especially goes for countries literally are just new. They get shut down and never speak up. I say no to that. In court, for example, the accused has the right to defend himself. Why not the World Assembly?

Bananaistan from Forest is a member of the WA General Secretariat. They stated on the NS forums:

Bananaistan wrote:"This is a cromulent repeal in terms of the Socialism in All Countries policy of the Party. The People's Democracies should be free to pick and choose which other member nations they wish to trade with while the previously well known flaws, applicable to our misguided "liberal" friends, are well covered here and good spot on this additional issue regarding GAR#440."

Cretox State is the Minister of WA Affairs of the North Pacific. Their argument is taken from TNP's forums:

Cretox State wrote:For. With the arrival of a competently-written replacement, I'm now comfortable supporting this repeal.

Adriatican is a Legislator in the South Pacific.

Adriatican wrote:Having recently penned a complimentary piece of World Assembly legislation which reached consideration of the various Delegacies for endorsement (which it did not receive quorum on), I cannot stress the importance of this legislation in regulating the international commercial market, and, though not as replete as I would like it to be, assuring equity and fairness in that market. I strongly urge against the endorsement of any effort to repeal.

Simone Republic is a citizen of the North Pacific. On TNP's forums, they posted the following:

Simone Republic wrote:Against. I am in favour of trade rights and I'd rather not take the risk on whether the replacement will pass.

Fauxia is a Citizen of The Rejected Realms. They stated the following on TRR's forums:

Fauxia wrote:Against. I dislike clause 4 and generally support the original. I also think the line about “unfriendly nations” is disingenuous considering the rights are waived for security reasons.
