    MHoC By-Election


    Following the closure of the National Liberal Party there will now be a by-election in seat 50.

    Sitting MPs are not allowed to stand in by-elections – this means that candidates will be forbidden to sit as an MP during the week of voting.

    The incumbent MP, Hydeman, will continue to serve as an independent MP until voting begins, then the MHoC will operate with 49 MPs pending the result of the election. This is to allow him to stand as a candidate for another party or as an independent should he so wish, and to ensure closure of the Nat Libs really does mean closure.

    Seats won under a party banner are added to the party total and are not the property of the winning candidate. Party members may only stand under a party banner – to stand as an indie requires them to resign their party membership when they submit their candidacy.

    To submit your candidacy please PM your manifesto to the Speaker by 4pm on Monday 4 July.

    The schedule will be as set out in the Guidance Document:
    Day 0 (27 Jun) – Election is announced by The Speaker.
    Day 0 (27 Jun) – The Speaker will inform interested candidates/parties to submit their manifestos
    Day 7 (4 Jul) – All manifestos should have been received by The Speaker.
    Day 7 (4 Jul) – The Speaker will post the manifestos in a thread in the Model House of Commons forum, add a secret 7 day poll with the option of “Spoilt Ballot” and send a message out to MPs informing them of the vote.
    Day 14 (11 Jul) – The election closes and seats are assigned.

    Manifesto rules:
    i) Manifestos may not contain more than two image files.
    ii) Manifestos may not contain audio or video files.
    iii) Manifestos may not contain pictures of, or quotes attributed to, any real-life figure, living or dead, political or otherwise.
    iv) Where a manifesto is received with more than 450 words, the Speaker will cut the manifesto at the 450-word mark.
    If you submit a manifesto as an image file, please send me a plain text copy alongside it.
