    You're the Party Chairperson right? If Davij isn't around, you're technically Acting Leader and have the authority to go about preparing for the by-election and getting a new leader. If you wish to stand, the Speaker can run the election for you guys. Make sure to use nebelbon and Airmed, their experience will be invaluable to you guys

    It helps them get off the ground. I don't think it was taken into account in the actual decision

    The party formed after the last General Election. They have never contested an election and thus have never won a seat.
    Can you confirm how many days they went without a post in the sub-forum.

    Well, the duals have apparently failed to save them from inactivity and provided no guidance so far so… Are you sure they're that necessary, PetrosAC?

    I have to disagree - it lends new parties a wealth of experience and differing perspectives and means that they can actually get legislation to the House, having MPs within their ranks to support it. Had there not have been some excellent and experienced members already within the National Liberals, I would have offered to be a dual member for them to give them some guidance which new parties often don't have access to.

    I've been counting the days towards the fateful month.

    Around two weeks I think. Though they are posting now. This may have been a useful prod for them.

    Fair point I mean, I think the Party should be given every chance now that it's actually been formed, though in hindsight maybe it shouldn't have been.

    The entire point of constraints on creation is to ensure that parties able to form are able to sustain themselves. Not only that but new parties are very susceptible to dilution ideologically.

    It is not your responsibility to help new parties.

    I'm not an expert on political definitions (in fact I know very little), please could someone advise me on how the ideology/policy positions of this party is different from the Libertarians (or Classical Liberals).

    Well, the original Liberals and the National Lierals are kind of like sister parties.

    We haven't interfered with the political side of things.

    We're there if they want to ask us anything.

    The National Liberals are center-left traditionalists. Classical Liberals and Libertarians are much better placed in the Liberals and Tory parties.

    Nat Libs are further left economically.
