The Senate of the Lakes (Hurmu Norse: Aldraraaðeð sjooa; Lakkvian: Järvede vanematekogu; White Lontinian: Nuuruudyn Akhmadyn zövlöl; Blue Lontinian: Kölder aqsaqaldarı keñesi; Crandish: Altonratt ties Zeivers), also known as the Senate of Hurmu and the Senate, is the upper chamber of the Parlerment (or legislature) of Hurmu, and is also the collective head of state of Hurmu, as an example of the exercise of sovereignty of the Order of the Holy Lakes in right of Hurmu. The Senate is also the constitutional court of Hurmu, and it decides on rules governing the Order of the Holy Lakes

The current Senate, elected in 1701 and took office on 1.I.1702, has 18 members who are elected by the Electors, that is the adult members (who are at least or will turn 18 years of age during the year of the election) of the Order of the Holy Lakes. The Senate had 9 members from 1690 to 1701, with the first election occurring in 1690 and the second one in 1695. From 1702 and onwards, the Senate had 18 members.

The Senate was originally created by Prince Andelarion as the Electorate of Hurmu in 1514. Quickly renamed to the Senate of the Lakes, it was in session from 1522 to 1558 (I), from 1570 to 1574 (II), and from 1574 until 1599 as the merged Senate of Elwynn and Hurmu (III), and from 1599 as the Senate of an independent Hurmu once more (IV), until 1603, when it was effectively destroyed during the Hurmu genocide. After Hurmu's reunification in 1690, the Senate has been in three sessions (1690–1695 (VI), 1695–1701 (VII), and 1701 (VIII) and onwards).

Powers

The Senate of the Lakes acts as the collective head of state of Hurmu, and, during the prorogation of the Assembly (automatically in election periods and when otherwise declared), it is the sole legislature of Hurmu.

Moreover, the Senate is the upper house of the Parlerment of Hurmu, and thus, all bills passing the Assembly must meet the approval of the Senate in order to be enacted into law.

Also, the Senate is also the final arbiter or interpreter of all constitutional matters. In so doing, the Senate acts as Supreme Court for all constitutional questions in Hurmu.

The Senate has furthermore the following duties:

  • Overseeing the Hurmu Peace Corps
  • Overseeing the Order of the Holy Lakes
  • Accrediting and receiving diplomatic envoys, such as ambassadors
  • The power to declare war and make peace
  • Ratify treaties (the Assembly's approval is necessary if the treaty amends national legislation)
  • Amend the constitution (with the approval of the States, not the Assembly)

The minority in the Senate have the powers as follows:

  • Any question within the powers of the Senate might be brought to a referendum of the Electorate (i.e. the adult members of the Order of the Holy Lakes) if one third of the Senators so declare; such referendum will be held in conjunction with the next regular senatorial election. For example, if three Senators state that they want the question of changing the name of Hurmu's official name to "Republic of Hurmu", then the voters will decide on it in a binding referendum, and the question may not be revisited by the Senate during the term preceding the referendum or following it.

Senate 1702–1706

Elected in 1701 to the Senate term beginning 1.I.1701 were 1 Ayreonist, 4 Conservatives, 1 Verionist, 6 Humanists, and 6 Traditionalists.

1703 2 1 Port Esther Summit: Report I Received Rapporteur: Jan Spiik.
1703 2 6 Report on Lycurgus. Abbreviated form: The harbour master at Tyrador, one of the small community of shipwrecked mariners who found shelter with the HPC garrison there, reported spotting a rusting merchantman, ex-SATCO by the looks of it, sheltering in the roads offshore. The garrison commander was summoned, as he had the binoculars. The colours at the vessel's stern appeared to be those of the Elwynnese Realm. In the absence of coastguard cutter, nor of an air sea rescue helicopter, requisitions for which have been submitted, a contingent of eight riflemen accompanied the harbour master on a commandeered native fishing boat to make an inspection of the strange vessel.

The MV Lycurgus, almost certainly a false name, was found to be carrying a human cargo - four hundred and fifty Umraists from the city of Allswell in Alalehzamin. All in a miserable and sickly condition.

It transpires that the persecution has continued, in spite of international criticism. Those Umraists who refused the call to submit to the Covenant, about half in all, were subjected to a round-up, with the security forces assisted by their Zurvanite neighbours. Selection parades are reportedly being conducted in rural Mishalan, with those chosen for the Labour Reserve being sent to Pozdam for processing, whilst the rejects are being herded onto trains bound for Avakair, where they apparently await boats.

It should be noted that most reported executions have been conducted against those who have attempted to resist, or flee, particularly those trying to cross borders without authority.

Those found manacled aboard the MV Lycurgus were apparently a "trial run", an attempt to find a suitable port or coastline onto which the deported population could be dumped. There may well be more to come.

Received Rapporteur: Ghawetkiin Enkhjargal.
1703 6 17 Ratification of Treaty between Hurmu and Sanama Approved With this treaty, diplomatic relations with the new regime in Sanama were normalized. Adopted with 13 votes in favour (Ayreonists, Humanists, Traditionalists, Verionists) with the 4 Conservatives absent. The Humanist vote proved dramatic, as the Humanists first opposed ratification, citing the plight of the "Humanist Martyrs of Richmond". Thereafter, the Presiding Officer, being shocked at the sudden emotive nature of the humanist delegation, adjourned the meeting for a few minutes. When the meeting resumed 10 minutes later, the Humanist delegation informed the Presiding Officer that they had changed their votes to abstain. A few minutes later, the Humanist delegation received a telegram from Chryse, carried into the Senate chamber on a silver platter by one of the young Lakkvian ushers working at the Palace of the Elenaran, and the Humanist delegation then informed the Presiding Officer that they changed their votes again, once more, this time to being in favour. Despite the Conservatives having not been able to attend the meeting yet (travel difficulties), the Presiding Officer immediately called the question closed, perhaps in an attempt to avoid further Humanist vote changing, and declared the treaty duly ratified.
1703 3 Sitting in memoriam Kir Azariah Vidar, who had died the day before.
1703 4 Eliza Aabooð takes up the seat left vacant upon the death of Kir Azariah Vidar.
1703 10–11 Report on the Ghawlama attack. According to a leak reported by the Humanist-aligned tabloid Hurmu Herald, the Senate voted (15 votes in favour (Conservatives, Humanists, Traditionalists), 2 against (Ayreonist, Verionist) to issue an ultimatum to the so-called Republic of Barikalus, whereby the Republic would have 12 days (i.e. until the 22 or 23.VIII.1703 to provide Hurmu with reparations for the attack, with figures around 1 million Cräites per dead Hurmudan and for costs of cleaning up the harbour and repairing it and salvaging the damaged ship, as well as handing over all persons involved in the attack to face trial in Hurmu, and that if the Republic fails to deliver on these demands, Hurmu will respond to a military attack on its territory with a proportional military response, and also exclude Mustafa Asada from the Order of the Holy Lakes for treason by waging war against Hurmu.
1703 8 24 Expulsion of Mustafa Asada

The Senate condemns, in the strongest terms possible, the attack on Hurmu territory, in which several hundred people were murdered soldiers and airmen under the command of Mustafa Asada, son of Ali Asada and Jalila el-Hana.

Mustafa Asada has failed to take responsibility for his actions and for the actions of the people under his command. He has received the demands for reparation and bringing to justice of all of those involved in the attack, and he has not acted on them. As such, he has brought the Holy Lakes into disrepute and his refusal to take responsibility threaten the people of Hurmu with war.

By bringing fire and death upon the people of Hurmu, Mustafa Asada has committed treason against the Holy Lakes. For that reason, the Senate of the Lakes, in its capacity as sovereign of the Order of the Holy Lakes in right of Hurmu, expels Mustafa Asada, son of Ali Asada and Jalila el-Hana, from the Order of the Holy Lakes, with immediate effect.
Unanimously approved Mustafa Asada thus had the rare dishonour of being the first person ever to have been expelled from the Order of the Holy Lakes

1695 10 20 Confirm Daniyal al-Osman to Prime Minister Confirmed. (6–2–1) Passed on party lines. Humanists and Traditionalists in favour, Ayreonists against. Karel des Vinandy abstained.
1695 14 24 Humanist proposal to dispatch seven hundred tonnes of humanitarian and medical aid, including donated blood plasma, to the Red Orchid Society in Elwynn, responding to the dire humanitarian situation there. Confirmed. (9-0-0) Immediately executed
1696 1 16 Constitutional amendment Confirmed. (9–0–0) Amendment establishes the division of states and districts, and recognises the states of Lontinien, Lake District and Rekozemlje. At the same time, Senate passes an annexation of land to bring to Rekozemlje, concluding Operation Bauk
1696 10 10 Open up borders for Krasnocorian refugees to settle in Rekozemlje Confirmed. (9–0–0) Passed by acclamation.
1696 15 24 Repatriation of SDF soldiers interned in Hurmu. The Second Elwynnese Civil War is ended, and SDF soldiers have requested to return "home" to Cimmeria and Raikoth. The government in Ardashirshahr has requested their repatriation to continental Elwynn to face trial. The question before the Senate was to send them to Cimmeria and Raikoth, where they would not face criminal charges. Confirmed. (9–0–0) Passed by acclamation, with the addendum that any remaining military equipment would be handed over the Hurmu Peace Corps prior to departure.
1697 2 16 * Hurmu abides by a one-Elwynn policy, whereby there is only one Elwynn.
* The government of Ardashirshahr, controlling the greater share of the Elwynnese population, has the most legitimate claim on the government of Elwynn.
* Thus Hurmu will only have official diplomatic relations with the government in Ardashirshahr.
* Relations with the authorities in Cimmeria and Raikoth will be informal and on authority (not government) level, and will relate only to trade and cultural exchanges.
Confirmed (5-4-0) Passed on faction lines (in favour: Humanists, Traditionalists; against: Ayreonists, Conservatives). The alternative line, proposed by the Conservatives, was that Hurmu would recognise neither government in Elwynn, and be neutral in that respect, only having informal relations, failed despite its obvious compromise nature. The Ayreonists had initially proposed to establish diplomatic relations with Free Elwynn, but this was also voted down by the Conservatives, Traditionalists, and Humanists.
1697 8 15 Constitutional amendment in summary: From the next election onwards, the Senate of the Lakes will consist of 18 senators, elected in the same way as in previous elections. The Senate will appoint, among its own members, a Chairman, to preside over the meetings. The Chairman shall not be granted any extra honours. The Senate will remain the collective head of state. The Chairman shall not be part of the foreign affairs committee. The Chairman shall not vote unless it is to break a tie Confirmed (6-0-3) Passed on faction lines (in favour: Ayreonists, Traditionalists, Conservatives; abstain: Humanists). Measure to be implemented for the next Senate.
1698 5 7 Resignation of Clara Sundara and Emperor Nathan II, along with their descendants deriving their membership only from those persons, from the Order. Discussed Since the matter was not a voting matter, but rather a notice, it was only discussed as it was sensitive and affected the future of the Order and the Senate greatly. The Senate has not yet been able to close this item, and it remains a standing point of (heated and angry) discussion among the Senators.
1698 8 6 East Barrow Appropriations Act 1698 Confirmed by acclamation Authorises the the Hurmu Peace Corps deployment in East Barrow to engage pirates and protect the legitimate interests of the Hurmu state in the vicinity of East Barrow. Furthermore, the Act directs public funding to the civilian authorities in East Barrow to manage the immigration situation.
