CAP-0: Clean up the position descriptions in section 3.2

Put by: Alex Jago

Motion

Replace the contents of sub-sub-sub-sections 3.2.1.1, 3.2.2.1, 3.2.3.1, 3.2.4.1 and 3.2.5.1 with the contents of 3.2.1.2, 3.2.2.2, 3.2.3.2, 3.2.4.2 and 3.2.5.2 respectively, then remove the now-duplicate 3.2.1.2, 3.2.2.2, 3.2.3.2, 3.2.4.2 and 3.2.5.2.

Repeal sub-sub-section 3.2.7 "Registered Officer" in its entirety.

Replace 3.2.8(1) with "Three (3) Councillors will be appointed by election at the Annual National Congress to the National Council." and repeal 3.2.8(2).

Rationale

Note to avoid ambiguity: all sections referred to in the motion are in Part III, section 3.2 "Positions".

In 2017 at the Emergency National Congress, we inserted a number of updated position-description clauses (as well as replacing the Registered Officer with a third Councillor). That all took effect at the middle of last year as intended. Since the old clauses are no longer operational, it is now time to remove them altogether.
