[note: I am not a native speaker] I have sometimes seen that word used to mean "efficient", but I'm not sure it's what you are referring to. As I understand the word, something is "effective" if it exists and is valid by the constitution or whichever rules apply. A delegation is "no longer effective" when it either expires or is cancelled by an authority that has the power to do so (including self-resignation). Regards, -- Sam.
