What would constitute a good reason to allow a court case to proceed?
How well do you know the Force Constitution? Do you understand it well enough to effectively answer any questions citizens have about it?

I know it very well. I have read it a few times before. Yes, I do think I know it well enough to answer the citizens' questions.

What exactly is the role of the Prosecutor?
The role of the Prosecutor is an irremovable Cabinet position. They hold the responsibility of deciding whether to bring a criminal court to the Court's attention and shall provide reasoning for such filing. They must provide the case to the Cabinet to see whether they wish to override the Prosecutor's decision.

If elected, do you plan to be active enough to effectively respond to any requests for cases?
Yes, I will be sufficiently active. I am normally extremely active on Discord, and at least will be available once a day.

What would constitute a good reason to allow a court case to proceed?
A court case should proceed if it is backed with evidence and is significant enough to require a court case.

How well do you know the Force Constitution? Do you understand it well enough to effectively answer any questions citizens have about it?
I am very familiar with the Force Constitution. I have read it many times and have a solid understanding of it. I will be able to answer any questions citizens have regarding the constitution.

What exactly is the role of the Prosecutor?
The Prosecutor's role is a range of things. First, the Prosecutor receives court cases. Second, the Prosecutor decides if a court case has enough evidence and gravity to be reviewed by the court. Lastly, the Prosecutor must synthesize the evidence to provide a clear and unbiased profile of the facts to present to the Judge and the Jury.

Is there any case under which you would deviate from legal procedures and give someone a punishment for a crime other than what is specified in Article J of the Constitution?

There is absolutely no case in which I should stray from what's already been outlined in the Constitution. It is the highest level of the law.

What would constitute a reason to overturn a Bill passed by the House?

Several reasons to do such may include errors, unfairness, lack of depth, ignorance, unreasonable clauses, and most of all, if it is deemed unconstitutional by the Court, therefore nullifying the BIll.

What exactly is the role of the Judge?

The Judge is a vital role, and would be the one to receive the cases approved by the Prosecutor, would review the case and evidence, and would eventually release a verdict alongside an appropriate punishment - clearly and efficiently. Not only that, but the Judge must also assemble a Jury if necessary to the case(s) at hand.

No. The constitution is the law of Force and cannot be deviated from.

What would constitute a reason to overturn a Bill passed by the House?

A few reasons:
Fails to define the point
Blatant grammatical errors
Bias within the House
Corrupt vote

What exactly is the role of the Judge?
To be fair and just, and have a natural sense of right and wrong.

Why do you think you are the best/ideal person to take the role in which you are running for?

The reason I find myself suitable for this position includes the following reasons:
1) I am greatly capable of learning things quickly and efficiently, therefore making me suited for learning the Constitution and both new and old laws.
2) I can, in a general sense, formally speak and write for an audience
3) I have integrity and will pursue what is right and condemn what is wrong, and have an understanding of logic and reasoning
4) I'm generally familiar with the people of Force and wish for nothing but to protect them
5) I can understand and maintain balance, as proven by the detailed creation of Conquest and my legislative work in Nasunia
