The Athenian Constitution 1. Athens will be run by a representative democracy of Senators, who are overseen by an Archon.

In this charter, the roles of the Senators and Archon will be explained, and also the rules surrounding their election and service. Finally, a Scroll of Privileges will be drafted to ensure that the people will always be safe from tyranny. 2. The management of Athenian domestic and global policy is in the hands of the Senators, who must vote to a majority consensus before making a decision. There shall be five Senators who serve one-week terms. Each Saturday, Senatorial Elections are held, where any number of citizens may run for office, and each Athenian will vote for no more than five of their candidate Senators to represent them. The five senators who receive the most votes will win the office. At least 40% of Athens must participate in the election process for the election to be considered valid. 3. The Archon oversees the democratic process and is responsible for ensuring that the government is upholding the Constitution at all times. Should a breach of Constitution occur, the Archons judgment takes precedent. The Archon serves a one-month term, where the office will become up for election once again. This follows the same rules as Senatorial elections, except that only those citizens who have served as Senator may run for Archon. 4. This Constitution may be amended by a proposition from a Senator which receives a unanimous vote in Senate which then receives a 60% majority vote from the population of Athens. 5. This Constitution must be ratified by a 60% majority vote of the current Athenian population.
