During GAs, we often face the problem that we can’t amendment proposals of amendments to the IRPs or to the political platform. We also can’t really discuss them in Compromise Amendments Sessions. It sometimes brought to the rejection of amendments delegates agreed on the substance but not with the exact wording or to the adoption of amendments whose wording could have been made clearer. We want to change that by introducing the possibility to submit alternative amendments (basically amendments to the amendments). To make sure delegates do not abuse that to submit last minute amendments to the IRPs including completely new proposals that delegates wouldn’t have had time to discuss with their MO, we create a safeguard that allows the presidency to declare an alternative amendment out-of-scope.
