Questions about the Laws of Government.

How do people make laws?
A proposal for a new Law or a change to an existing one is called a bill (see Bills and laws). A bill can only become a law if it is passed by a majorette in the House of Representatives. The bill must be agreed by both chambers, and given by the Royal Governor-General.

How long does it take to make laws?
It may take weeks or even months for just one  bill to be passed through Parliament. However, an urgent bill can be passed in a matter of days. About 200 bills are even passed into Parliament each year and about 90 per cent are passed into law.

Who is the leader of new Zealand?
The Prime Minister. (Jacinda Ardern)After an election, the parliamentary party or coalition of parties with the support of the majority of members elected to the House of Representatives forms the government.

Why do we need laws?

What laws do we have?
There are 4 main types of law, criminal, civil, common and statute. ... In this first task I will explain briefly each one: Criminal Law: This is the kind of law that the police enforce. Murder, assault, robbery and rape are all included within the boundaries of criminal law.

The 3 branches of Government?
Our government have three parts. They are the Executive, (President and about 5,000,000 workers)Legislative (Senate and House of Representatives) and Judicial (Supreme Court and lower Courts).

How can a bill become a law?
If two-thirds of the Representatives and Senators support the bill, the President's veto is overridden and the bill becomes a law. Do nothing (pocket veto)—if Congress is in session, the bill automatically becomes law after 10 days. If Congress is not in session, the bill does not become a law.

What is the major purpose of laws?
The law serves many purposes and functions in society. Four principal purposes and functions are establishing standards, maintaining order, resolving disputes, and protecting liberties and rights. The law is a guidepost for minimally acceptable behavior in society.

Why are rules and laws important?

Climate Change:
Climate change is a change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns when that change lasts for an extended period of time, Climate change may refer to a change in different weather conditions, like, Snow,Rain storms and Earthquakes. Climate change is caused by factors such as biotic processes, variations in solar radiation received by Earth, plate tectonics, and volcanic eruptions. Certain human activities have been identified as primary causes of ongoing climate change, often referred to as global warming.
Scientists actively work to understand past and future climate by using observations and theoretical models. A climate record—extending deep into the Earth's past—has been assembled, and continues to be built up, based on geological evidence from borehole temperature profiles, cores removed from deep accumulations of ice, floral and faunal records, glacial and pericardial processes, stable-isotope and other analyses of sediment layers, and records of past sea levels. More recent data are provided by the instrumental record. General circulation models, based on the physical sciences, are often used in theoretical approaches to match past climate data, make future projections, and link causes and effects in climate change.

If i did i wouldn’t show anyone but myself. Im always socially active on Facebook and Instagram.

  • never agree to do meetups with someone u just meet online
  • never reply to a spam or junk email you receive
  • dont accept any friend request to reply to emails  or messages from people you dont already know

Tokelau in 20 years time

What do u think tokelau look like in 20 years time?

Well because Tokelau is in danger because of the sea water levels and the island its getting smaller and smaller. Tokelau will probably be under water or maybe it might still be there as an island? We dont know yet. Tokelau probably have no more land and most people will probably migrate from Tokelau island. We dont know that yet but i hope tokelau will still be standing and hopefully Tokelau will have more people there.

I think there will be faster transportation and More people migrating from New Zealand to tokelau or Australia to Tokelau. I reckon Tokelau will have fruit tree's like coconut trees or veges gardens.
im sure tokelau will have enough water to last for years to come, and the tokelauans dont have to dig wells just to get water, i hope tokelau people get enough money n space for them to live on and survive.
