Improper to amend bylaws by appointed committee

"This committee shall have the power to amend any GRP bylaws..." I consider it highly improper for bylaws to be amended by an appointed committee. Bylaws must be protected from being changed by a small group of members. This implementation goes against the very purpose of bylaws. Bylaws are supposed to be robust such that they can apply to a diverse range of opinions. I suggest that the, above, wording be replaced with: ""This committee shall be charged with making proposals to amend any GRP bylaws...". Add this wording at the end: "The State Committee must review, consider and implement said proposals in accordance with Green-Rainbow Party Bylaws, Section 15. Amending the Bylaws."

    Thanks for the heads-up, Jaime.
    I flagged your comment, thinking I would be able to qualify my ‘flag’ as a sort of ‘thanks’
    But NO, I just got an automated response from the site:
    [[“We will investigate the issue. Thank you for letting us know.”]]

    The issue is with the inadequate clarity in the site design – Oh Well :-)

    Sorry, I meant to tag the “remedy” proposal as BAD. I agree that it is beyond improper to change bylaws this way.
