Advice and Consent Outside the U.S.[edit]

Should there be some mention of non-U.S. uses of the phrase "advise and consent"? On http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enacting_formula, I see that the phrase has been used as part of the enacting formula for legislation in the U.K. and other countries that nominally follow the U.K.' queen. I also notice that http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judicial_and_Bar_Council mentions a defunct Phillipine process that sounds like "advice and consent" (and is characterized as such in one of the "Did you know?" questions on today's Wikipedia front page). I'm guessing that some constitutions that follow the U.S. model--and perhaps some others proceeding from different angles--also have advice and consent in nomination processes, but I'm not sure.Hickoryhillster 14:11, 13 August 2006 (UTC)

For countries where the exact phrase is used, add them under another level two header. Governments that have a similar process, but with a different wording, can be listed under the See also section. Koweja 17:19, 10 November 2006 (UTC)

List of Senate-confirmable positions?[edit]

Do we have a current list of Senate-confirmable positions in the U.S.? If yes, it should be linked from this article and if not, it'd be good to create one.... Nsk92 (talk) 12:43, 7 November 2008 (UTC)
