    Speakership Election

    Voting is now open in the speakership election. If a candidate receives more than 50% they will be elected immediately, otherwise the top two candidates will go into a second round of voting.

    The Logical Choice for speaker

    We need a speaker that will recognize that fairness and being non partisan is a vital quality in taking on the role of being speaker of the MHoC. If elected speaker I will ensure theses qualities are upheld to the highest's of standards and every member new or old , labour or conservative , UKIP or socialist (Even the liberals to) are treated with fairness and their contributions are valued.
    We deserve a speaker that has the experience and organisation skills to take on the important role of being speaker. I will
    -Consult the house on the idea of moving the daily update to the Morning / Afternoon rather then the evening so when members log on the daily update and new legislation is posted
    -Continue working with the CC and ensure every party has one representative that is active and making crisis's for the house
    -Ensure Party MP seats are filled and will run by-elections if any MP voting record falls below 70%
    -Create a new “The speakers Chamber” Thread and a “Speaker Announcement” Thread for any important announcements / statements can be made and read in one thread
    -Consult the house on the election of a Third Chairman of ways and means or2nd Deputy Speaker
    With theses proposals and the members that we have I hope we can work together to make the house a better place for everyone

    PetrosAC



    Aph
    I, Aph, doth hereby declare that I, Aph, doth hereby proclaim that I, Aph, doth hereby put myself forward as nominee for the position of speaker.

    As speaker I will be harsh and decisive. I will issue a death blow to all failing TSR institutions and parties. I will use the full extent of my new found power to overhaul the definitions and interpretations found in the GD, I will reset precedent and harshly punish all who step out of line. I will end this endemic of people using devices in ways they aren't meant to be used and I promise to spy openly and regularly on all party sub-forums. I will also combat nastiness in the sub-forum by working with the CT to begin overzealous moderation of the MHOC to crackdown on even the slightest personal attack.

    Vote for me to make the MHOC great again!!!

    This is a very tough decision indeed as Adam, Petros and Dan have really impressed me. However, after much deliberation, I have decided to vote for PetrosAC. He's very active, very fair and has some very sensible policies. That said, I think both Adam and Dan would make good Speakers if they were elected.

    I've decided to vote for Aph. Despite the fact that his manifesto was undeniably ****, I know from personal experience that he will be good at the administrative side of being Speaker, and that despite being harsh (which, imo, the House needs at the moment anyway), he will carry out his duties fairly and without fear or favour.

    That is fine, the Crisis Committee's private forum does not have rules in place to stop leaking; I carefully read the Crisis Committee's Constitution before doing anything. It is not bending the rules, it is operating in the rules to bring about favourable outcomes, it is playing the game in the way it should be played. You do not like it because I have outplayed you twice by writing an amendment to get around the Constitution, and leaking ideas from the Crisis Committee forum.
    Well, it says in the CC Constitution that members shouldn't leak details of planned crises...

    Also, you haven't 'outplayed' me at all. You've failed 4 times to close down the CC from the outside and once to destroy it from the inside out.

    No, the Crisis Committee Constitution gives guidance to members by making the suggestion members should not leak things, it does not explicitly state members should not leak things, nor are there consequences for leaking things. I have made you complain about my moves which is a win, I cannot stop MPs from choosing to abstain when they voted aye before.

    No, members are expected no to leak details of crises. Just because there aren't consequences, doesn't mean breaking that rule is wrong. I would be very concerned that if you were to be elected Speaker, you would apply a similar attitude and carry out controversial actions because you can get away with doing so.

    An expectation is not a rule, if the Crisis Committee is going to be secret there should be rules to abide all members to secrecy.

    No.

    I've ruled some people out but have not 100% decided on others.

    I would like to relax the rules, but there still needs to be a core of active members to form the party.

    IS it so hard for you to look back at the Q&A and see which candidates bothered to answer and how they answered?
