Only if they don't vote to extend their terms.  :)

How about something that allows for changes, but which also allows for a 
referendum to confirm the change?

Maybe the council can vote to change the GLEP (simple majority).  The 
changes aren't effective until after the next council election.  During 
the next council election a parallel referendum is held to approve the 
council decision, and then the decision is binding on the next council 
(which may have some of the same members as the previous one).

Also - I think that the GLEP should really define the role and authority 
of the council, and their terms/etc.  I don't think the GLEP should 
dictate how they operate.  If we didn't micromanage the council in the 
GLEP, maybe there wouldn't be so much need to change it from time to time.

If we want to have written policies about how the council operates 
(slacker marks, vote-by-email, etc) then we should put that in a 
separate GLEP, which the council can modify like any other.
