The Council is the municipal and national legislature of the Free City of Seacoln. The Council passes and amends laws and regulations; approves the annual budget and taxation; appoints and removes the Chief Executive, secretaries and members of committees; debates matters proposed by the Cabinet, by secretaries or by individual members. Members are also able to ask questions to find out information and to hold secretaries to account.
The system lends itself to block voting - each of the parties or electoral coalitions tended to nominate a slate of ten candidates and encourage its supporters to vote for all of them. In most cases, the winning party or coalition would have all ten of its nominees elected, with the other seven elected members coming from the second-place party.
