    Hey all,
    Another position has opened up in the Security Council. The position of China(People's Republic of) is now avaliable.
    The process is as follows:


    The Secretary General may start a thread stating that the position is open.
    Any prospective candidates should PM the Secretary General with a Manifesto.
    If the election is called by virtue of the incumbent delegate being removed by operation of Article 81, that incumbent may not stand for re-election.
    The Secretary General should allow at least six days for submitting Manifestos.
    A Manifesto should detail why the representative considers they are suitable for such an important role and should ideally be between 100 and 200 words.
    The Secretary General will start a thread with all Manifestos in a random order in the OP.
    Article 70
    A Question & Answer period of 48 hours will ensure for the entire MUN to question candidates.
    Article 71
    Members shall attempt to ask the candidates equally difficult questions
    Article 72
    NO member shall announce their support for a candidate during this time period or during the vote
    Article 73
    NO member shall comment on the level of competition
    Article 74
    The Secretary General will then open a poll which will last for 48 hours.
    The “Re-Open Nominations” or “RON” option shall be included.
    The results of the poll will be hidden until the poll is closed.
    Article 75
    The Secretary General may not vote in this poll unless there is a tie in the voting. The Secretary General has the casting vote.
    Article 76
    Candidates shall not be permitted to campaign via private messaging during the election.
    Candidates now have six days to submit a manifesto. As stated above the manifesto should detail why the representative considers they are suitable for such an important role and should ideally be between 100 and 200 words.

    Officially 're-open nominations' if people don't want to vote for any other candidate. RON himself is bit of an enigma!

    Pretty strict. Generally between 100 and 200 words is the target. Are you over the 200 word limit? If so by how much?

    If I entered a manifesto and won, would I still be able to continue representing Uruguay along with the Chinese role?

    I am sure T_C would have no problem with you using dual representation.

    a dark being created at the very beginnings of time, who has made it his mission to participate in every election on TSR effortlessly He had a mate called Abstain at one point, but he seems to have gone away.
