We have a few issues that need to be sorted first but there are two ways to go about establishing the first Government of The House of Lords: The three week method. Finish the Charter to a point where most agree with it. Appoint people to various ranks and titles. Follow the Charter, call elections and create the first Government (takes about 2 - 3 weeks according to the Charter so far when you consider all the voting periods etc..). The advantage is we get to test the Charter out in the election process and if we find out that it sucks, we have the opportunity to fix it before making it public. The disadvantage is that it takes 3 weeks. The one day method. Sort out who gets what position now (Me Lord President, Vorak Prime Minister). Declare the first Government in the Charter. Finish up the Charter and all the other loose ends (including ranks and titles) before making it public. The advantage of this method is that we can get moving, create embassies etc... and just tell people that the Charter is coming. The disadvantage is that we don't get to test the processes involved in electing people. Vote!
