Overview

The Bearer of the Imperial Orc Wayleave has the right to announce a single commission. The bearer is not a member of the Imperial Senate, but they may use a single Senate announcement each summit to instruct the Empire to approve a commission.

The title was created in Summer 382YE when the Imperial Senate voted to reallocate one of the Imperial Wayleaves auctioned by the Bourse to the exclusive use of the Imperial Orcs.

Responsibilities

The Bearer of the Imperial Orc Wayleave has no responsibilities and may use the authority granted by the title to order any commission they choose.

Powers

Commission

Once during the summit where the title is appointed, the Imperial Orc Wayleave can commission the construction of a sinecure, ministry, or great work. The materials and money required for construction must be provided by the bearer or their agents.

If the bearer announces the commission of a sinecure or ministry then an Imperial title to oversee the commission is automatically created. The location and size of the commission and the method of appointment and tenure of any associated title are all part of the necessary details and may be included in the announcement made by the bearer or determined later by them.

The bearer of the Imperial Orc Wayleave cannot alter an existing commission.

Announcement

To use their power of commission, the bearer must make an announcement in the Imperial Senate. No voting is possible by the Senate at this point, as the power had been delegated to the bearer.

The Imperial Synod may choose to exercise their veto over the bearer's announcement. The Throne may choose to exercise their veto over the bearer's announcement.

Limitations

The bearer of the Imperial Orc wayleave can only commission a sinecure, ministry, or great work.

Unlike a civilian commissioner, the bearer is not prohibited from using their power to commission anything that provides liao or votes in the Imperial Synod. However, the appointment of such a title is still subject to the normal constitutional restrictions.

They not required to build their commission in their own nation and may use any method of appointment (for example, through the Bourse, the Conclave, Military Council, or Synod). The civil service are on hand to offer legal advice or support to a bearer just as they are to a senator, and the bearer may wish to submit their commission for scrutiny before it is announced to ensure there are no problems with their design.

Selection

As a national position, it is appointed by vote of Imperial Orc military unit captains with the assistance of the Bourse civil servants. The position is appointed annually at the Autumn Equinox, rather than on a season-by-season basis.
