Vote Recommendation: For
This proposal seeks to promote the welfare and well-being of the general public and society by facilitating the disclosure and prompt inquiry into significant misconduct within a government or non-government "entity", while safeguarding those who come forward in accordance with the provisions of the proposal.
We could not quite understand exactly why "three" was chosen as the magic number under section 6, i.e. why not four? Why not five? Ensuring the right threshold exists for addressing complaints is also another concern - litigious and costly vexatious complaints almost always surround these types of legislative regimes.
With that being said, ensuring that the World Assembly and its committees and working groups have procedures in place to guarantee those aware of issues surrounding corruption and other questionable activities have opportunities to make disclosures - and be protected in that way, with no repercussions - is an important safeguard mechanism of any functioning democracy.
For the above reasons, the Ministry of World Assembly Affairs recommends a vote For the General Assembly proposal at vote, "Whistleblowing Convention".
