Speaker's Statement: TSR National Liberal PartyWatch
I know parties have internal elections for MPs and such, but with our system any vacant seat is only vacant as an MP has stepped down or has lost an internal vote of no confidence, the seat remains with the party. I'm just curious how a by-election would happen with our electoral system
- Political Ambassador
I wouldn't make them easy to happen, just concentrate it over one term instead of two, maybe something like if a seat drops below 70% voting, and doesn't improve having given the party time to replace the candidate it goes up for by-election. To me something like that makes more sense, in anycase I'll have a think on the issue, and I'll stop filling this thread with off-topic discussion
Thanks to everyone who was involved in bringing this together and thank you all for the warm support.
