Speaker Election - Round 1
Following the Q&A session, we now move to the first round of voting for our next Speaker. Please cast your vote over the next 4 days - this first round of voting will decide the final two candidates who will continue to the second round.

I won't ditch you like Ray did. I won't spel like hazzer. I won't lie as bad as Nigel. I'm not a virgin (line up ladies) and I can tie my own shoelaces. Shout out to my homeboy campaign manager JoeL1994.

For a fuhrer Speaker that will actually do something...
VOTE MOBBSY!!!!!!!

If you don't, I will probably bar you from the Bar.

Jammy Duel
This house needs a Speaker that I active, I therefore pledge that, assuming I am kept in office long enough, I will be active, on average, every other day rather than every third day.

We need an effective Speaker, therefore I shall ensure that in my absences that may last several months at a time the Deputy Speaker, or in their absence the Sergeant-at-Arms, will continue with updates, you wouldn't even know I was gone.

We need a Speaker that makes decisions, therefore when required to make a decision I shall take at most one day before coming out with it and not let myself be pushed around by the moaning of the former leader of UKIP.

We need a Speaker who will be rigorous. I am well known for being rigorous. I'm the best at rigour. I love rigour!

On a more serious note, if everybody else pulls out before I do, one of the first things I will do is push for the CT to send out a mass PM publicising the MhoC given the lack of mass PM for quite some time, and if the mass PM amendment is not passed, do the same after future elections.

I'll be less annoying as Speaker. Vote Jammy for less irritation. Let's make the MHoC great again!

P.S. I will build a wall to keep the r****tors out!

Re-open Nominations





Sunday 15th May – The returning officer will open a secret poll (for MPs only in the Division Lobby) with the candidates’ names and the option for Re-Open Nominations.

Thursday 19th May – Poll closes. If a candidate has gained more than 50% of the vote, they are elected. If not, the two candidates with the most votes, plus ties, are put into a second three day ballot with no R.O.N. option. If at any point during the run-off vote a candidate withdraws the run-off is re-ran between the remaining candidate and the next highest placed candidate on the first round ballot excluding the candidate who has withdrawn. The run-off may be reran a maximum of three times. In the event there is no next placed candidate from the first round the remaining candidate undergoes a Speakership Confirmation motion procedure lasting three days. If three run-offs all result in withdrawals the candidate left undergoes a Speakership Confirmation motion.

Sunday 22nd May/ Wednesday 25th May/ Saturday 28th May - If a runoff election was needed, results of the election are announced and the candidate with the most votes is elected.

Tuesday 31st May - If a Speakership Confirmation Motion was called the results are announced.[/b]


For reference I put the full rules in the spoiler below. Good luck to all!

I think he meant that Adam's [low] intelligence and broad [negative] appeal put him off from supporting him.

I voted for an Irish person - his politics and location doesn't come into it () but he's smarter than the average unionist especially since he doesn't vote DUP and generally seems Speaker material with his ideas - there were so many decent candidates it eventually came down to what they thought of the CC

Low intelligence; that's a low blow, especially coming from you my friend!
