    Speakership Election

    Following my resignation yesterday, there will now be an election to elect a new Speaker of the Model House of Commons.

    Anyone is permitted to stand in this election. There is a seven-day period in which to submit manifestos, which need to be sent to me by 7pm on Tuesday 10 January. Manifestos must be no longer than 250 words, and may be submitted in either TSR formatted text or image format. Manifestos submitted as an image must be accompanied by a plain text copy in order to be accepted.

    The election will proceed as follows:


    Day 0 (03 Jan) – Returning officer announces the election and asks for manifestos to be submitted to them.
    Day 7 (10 Jan) – Returning officer will post the candidates who wish to run in the election for speaker along with manifestos.
    Day 7 (10 Jan) – Candidates for the position are questioned by MPs and members of the House of Commons
    Day 10 (13 Jan) – 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.
    Day 14 (17 Jan) – 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the remaining candidate and the next highest placed candidate on the first round ballot excluding the candidate who has withdrawn.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.

    Day 17/20/23 - If a runoff election was needed, results of the election are announced and the candidate with the most votes is elected.
    Day 26 - If a Speakership Confirmation Motion was called the results are announced.

    I am not sure if you are joking but this is the same guy who wanted to kill old people, invade a country to save birds, build a tunnel to Ireland, replace the calendar, nationalise dead people.
