If this Temporary situation comes up in the middle of an Office Term, once the membership status reaches "30", an election will not immediately take place.

2.3 - Domestic Aid Council Edit
The Domestic Aid Council is a branch of the Economic Agency, dealing particularly with the aid of nations in danger of becoming destroyed by an attacking nation or of becoming economically unstable to the point where the nation will be unable to rebuild itself. The Domestic Aid Council will receive the request of aid from such a nation and relay the message to Aid Administrators or in the most urgent and most dire of situations, the Domestic Aid Council will take action themselves. The Domestic Aid Council will then guide the Aid Administrators in their actions by assigning the type of aid given, the amount of aid, and the manner in which the aid will be directed. Once the orders are given; however, the Aid Administrators will act independently until a change in procedure is required.
2.3.1 - The Domestic Aid Council will, initially be comprised of three Seats. Each Seat will wield equal power, but must submit to any orders from the Economic Officer, Domestic Affairs Commissioner, and Consolidated Nations Council. Beneath the Seats are a minimum of three Aid Administrators.

That Administrator will take orders to his/her Seat before any other seat, but the Consolidated Nations Council, again, will override any Seat’s orders.

However, should the desire for aid be desperate enough, the Seats themselves may act immediately, or may command their personal Administrators to action on their own initiative, and without discussion among the other Seats. Once the matter has been resolved, the Seat(s) that acted without permission will be reviewed to determine that their actions were justified.
2.3.4 - The election of the Domestic Aid Council Seats will precede in much the same manner as elections for the Consolidated Nations Council. Elections will be held for the three Seats every 3 months; the elections will coincide with the election of the Consolidated Nations Council. The voting will be open to anyone who wishes to run.

Any member wishing to be elected to these positions must announce that they will be running within 48 hours of the election of the Seats.
