Investigative Framework:: Investigative Limits -------------------- No one in the investigative branch can create, repeal, amend, or evaluate, or participate in the creation, repeal, amendment, or evaluation, of legislation, except in an advisory or testimonial capacity as called upon by the legislative and enforcement branches, and insofar as practical interpretation can be construed to be a form of evaluation. A member of the investigative branch of a particular unit of state must operate exclusively in the performance of tasks specified generally or specifically by standing statutes enacted by the legislature of the same unit of state, or by direct enactment by the citizenry. The President of the Investigative Branch ----------------------------------------- For each unit of state, an office of president of the investigative branch is established. The president of the investigative branch is directly elected by those residents eligible to vote for legislative candidates in the corresponding legislature. The president of the investigative branch coordinates at the broadest level the monitoring of compliance with the law within the unit of state of which he is the president of the investigative branch, and the corresponding geographic region. No one can be president of the investigative branch of a particular unit of state for more than two terms consecutively. Investigative Structure ----------------------- The detailed structure of the investigative branch is to be determined by statute, enacted by the corresponding legislature. Each agency must have a charter defining the responsibilities and authorities of the agency, and the relationship of the agency to other agencies. Only the legislature of the same unit of state, or the citizenry of the corresponding geographic region through direct action, can create or dissolve an agency, or alter its size, funding. or charter. The power of appointment to offices within the investigative branch can be delegated to a member of the investigative branch by statute. Any such appointment can be nullified by a 62.5% vote-weight in the corresponding legislature. An investigator (an officer of the investigative branch) cannot appoint an individual such that the individual holds more than one state office, except when explicitly authorized by statutory framework or formal legislative approval.
