    VA147 – By-Election Duration Amendment (Third Reading)
    Proposed by: Unown Uzer MP (UKIP)
    Seconded by: EricAteYou MP (Lab), hazzer1998 MP (UKIP), mobbsy91 MP (Con), Quamquam123 MP (Lab)

    By-election Duration Amendment

    This House shall adjust the Guidance Document as follows:
    1.2.14 of the Guidance Document shall be amended to read:
    The duration of an election shall be 11 days.

    Day 0 – Election is announced by The Speaker.
    Day 0 - The Speaker will inform interested candidates/parties to submit their manifestos
    Day 7 – All manifestos should have been received by The Speaker.
    Day 7 - The Speaker will post the manifestos in a thread in the Model House of Commons forum, add a secret 4 day poll with the option of “Spoilt Ballot”.
    Day 11 – The election closes and seats are assigned.

    Notes:
    At the moment, a seat is left vacant for a very long time due to the long duration of the by-election. This amendment helps get an MP elected faster, which helps with the MHoC's activity.
