    Following my announcement yesterday, I'm running a Speakership Election.

    If you wish to run for the position, you need to PM me a manifesto of no more than 250 words by 7pm on Wednesday 25th July. Late entries will not be accepted. Current and former MPs are eligible to stand. The timetable for the Speaker Election is detailed below.

    TimetableWednesday 25th July (Evening) - Manifestos posted; 3 day Q&A period begins.

    Saturday 28th July - 4 day secret voting period begins.

    Wednesday 1st August. Voting Closes. If a candidate has gained more than 50% of the vote, they are elected, else a second round of voting begins.

    Saturday 4th August. Second round of voting closes (if required). The candidate with the highest number of votes is elected.


    If you have any questions, feel free to post here.

    Good Luck!
