It is idiotic that this decision to overthrow the government might not be able to be overturned. If a major scandal happened tomorrow, the government would at least be given the time until the next election happens to fix the mistake. But a paperwork error that sounds like a kindergarden rule? Why on earth would forgetting one measely sentence (especially when you're on a vastly important mission representing your entire country) have such huge and irrevocable consequences? -PD
