Thanks to the diligent MRPT, we do have two chancellors seated, which should suffice for the maestro election if the other parties are unable or unwilling to distribute their seats. I would suggest that our arvitier prima (do we have one?) set the deadline for the maestro election to coincide with the thirty day seat assignment deadline. On the bright side, come thirty days our viceré may have something to do.

I would like to open discussion for electing a new Maestro along with the beginning of the First Clark, so... tomorrow, but I'm sure we can put this off a few days to allow the Chancellery to be fully seated.
If you're asking for rules about the deadline, you'll want Article 12 of the Constitution: "A new Maestro may be chosen at any time by a resolution approved by a majority of the Provincial Chancellery, but a resolution electing a new Maestro or continuing the current Maestro in office must be approved by the Provincial Chancellery at least once in every term of the national Cosa. The first order of business of each newly assembled Provincial Chancellery will be to elect a new Maestro from among its members."

Okay, I guess I don't understand, then? I saw something here about a deadline for me to find someone to take our seats... can you point me to where I can read about that, or the ruling or whatever? I apologize to the good citizens of Benito, but I am embarrassed to say that I am not familiar with your laws and rules.

Article 10 of the Constitution of Benito reads in part, "...Political Parties will have until the next session or 30 calendar days, whichever is greater, to fill vacant seats. Any seats left vacant after such time will be turned over to the Viceré for distribution."
While the bulk of Article 10 refers to grounds for removing a chancellor, and the above quoted section refers to thusly vacated seats, it is the only section of the constitution which makes mention of unfilled seats, and at least in my untrained reading, could reasonably be argued to be applicable to seats never assigned.
The major question would now be, "When is the next session?"

Well, looking at Article 10, it looks to me like this does not make mention of the initial assignment of seats, but refers specifically (as you say, Vit) to Chancellors who are removed from office. And while I know you folks want to get started, I'm still looking to find a suitable person to take the RUMP seat. I promise I will assign the seat as soon as possible, but it doesn't look like there's any grounds to demand that I do it within 24 hours.
If there is someone who would like to serve RUMP interests in the province, in defense of His Majesty, fun, and good sense, please let me know.

I just realized it was my use of the word deadline that got all that confusion going. It was a rather strong choice of word. I meant it in regards to the maestro election, not seating. I, much as Lüc said, would like to see all the seats filled prior to the election, but I'd even more not like to see the election ever happen, due to unfilled seats.
