He/She takes on the Secretary-General’s duties when the Secretary- General is unable to.

V-II The first five Members to join this Union, are required to write no less than one Article of the future constitution/charter. They shall do this by electronically mailing the Secretary-General, *******************, their proposition for an article. The Secretary-General shall add all the articles together and create the constitution/charter. Then, each of the five Members must vote on whether to accept it as Their Own or not.
