The National Salvation Military Council for the Kivonian Revolution (Kivonian: Nationella Frälsningsmilitära Rådet för den Kivoniska Revolutionen), often called as the Military Council or just the NSMC, was the de facto upper house of the Third Kivonian Republic. It consisted of 20 members, called Sub-Provincial Officers, chosen by the NSMC to administer a Sub-Province out of the twenty Sub-Provinces in the nation, the Officers were chosen for life. The lower house of the Third Republic is the Civil Assembly, which was mainly for civilians who wished to actively partake in politics.
According to the Law, the NSMC is a consultative body and a chamber of the regions, it can propose bills, send recommendation to the other Chamber and to the Government and it has part into the legislative process about the regional, local and constitutional matters. Constitutional Laws must generally need a 2/3rd voting approval from the Civil Assembly and be sent to the NSMC for another 2/3rd voting approval before entering into National Law. Constitutional Laws on a case-by-case basis, such for example does which do not radically alter the stratocratic and/or current institutions of the Third Republic, or such as the creation of bodies, departments and agencies, do only need a simple majority in the Civil Assembly but will have to need a 2/3rd voting approval by the NSMC. It it is also made clear that NSMC decisions are binding.
The National Salvation Military Council was proposed in early 4758 in the Act for the Institutionalization of the National Salvation Military Council, by then Head of the Nation Augustin Volkhardt, to officially succeed the original National Salvation Military Council who founded and ruled the first modern Kivonian states, he believed that its institutionalization would help the final creation of the parliamentary stratocratic republic and to protect the military control over the nation. It was accepted by every member of the Civil Assembly, and Isabella Cederstam assumed temporary leadership over the Council through her position as State Officer of the Republic.
The Council chooses its members by giving military officers control over a Sub-Province, there exists four Sub-Provinces in each five Nation Province. By assuming the position of Sub-Provincial Officer, they automatically becomes a member of the National Salvation Military Council.
The leadership of the National Salvation Military Council is the body known as the National Military Commission (NMC). The Commission is composed of the Chairman of the NSMC, the Deputy Chairman, the Secretary of the Commission, a representative of the national government and a representative of the opposition in the Civil Assembly.
