10.9.2 Creating (and deleting) city positions
The syntax for creating a new position in your city is: PROPOSE CREATION OF <position> NAMED <name> IN <org> Where <position> is one of 'citycouncil' or 'cityminister'. A city must have at least three and no more than ten positions available for the Ruling Council. The syntax for deleting a new position in your city is: PROPOSE DELETION OF <position> IN <org> Where <position> is either the name of a minister position, or the numeric entry of a Ruling Council position as shown in POLITICS LIST FOR <city>.
