I was sitting down and I wanted to create a Constitution that could help alliances. Anyone can use this or leave feedback to make it better. If you use it though, I'd like if you tell me and give some credit . Please leave some feedback.
EDITED CODE THANKS TO FEEDBACK! POST WHAT YOU THINK, THANKS FOR READING!
The Civilian Code of 2013

1.1: Law may derive from legislative act or executive order. If there is a conflict of laws, the Code outweighs all matters of law.
1.2: In order for an addition to the Code, it requires a 60% vote from the Legislature and signature by the Patriarch. In order to amend any article of the Code, it requires 2/3rds vote of the Legislature and the Judiciary, without the approval of the Patriarch.

3.3: The Patriarch is elected by the Legislative with a 51% majority vote. Voting for a Patriarch shall only last 96 hours; afterwards, the voting is considered closed. If an election results with less than 51%, there shall be a runoff between the two highest percentage persons.

9: The Patriarch may ask the Council to hear a legislative act that he considers a violation of the Code or his powers. The Congress may ask the Council to hear an executive order that they consider a violation of the Code or their powers. However, it is up to the Chief Justice's discretion as stated in 6.1.
10: Neither members of the Council, the Patriarch or Vice Patriarch hold more than one office at one time. Neither the Council or Patriarch are able to vote for a legislative act.
