Hi Alexis,

I didn't distribute your proposals because they both contain some
typos (see below); please retract and resubmit them. By the way, your
MUA ruined the layout of your proposals, so I had to reformat them.
Please adjust its settings accordingly.

Good catch. This looks like a bug in the current ruleset.

s/month/monthly/. Also, it is common practice to reject proposals that
create a new office without providing an officeholder, so please add
"Install Alexis to the Superintentend office" or something similar.

I'd prefer if this part was moved to a separate proposal. After all, I
don't see why we should remove the Prime Minister's double voting power
for elections.

Other than that, the proposals look good to me. Be sure to resubmit
them, I'll definitly vote FOR them (unless other issues arise).
