    Nigel sorry it was something else he was against

    I can't see anyone who stated a position who said they would stick to the 10 member guideline
    No, if you read my answers you would find I would be open to supporting parties forming with three, active members who have a proven record of participating.

    I see.

    Which parties do the candidates believe the House is missing?
    We could spend all day trying to identify areas where there is a need for a party, however, the Socialists take the far-left; the Green Party, and Labour take the left; the Liberal Party takes anyone; the Conservatives actively try to recruit any right-wing users; and UKIP takes the rest. A new party forming would not be forming to represent a group of users who have no representation in a party, the new party would be forming to change the outcome of elections by playing with voting shares.

    That's why I went back and corrected it

    Libertarian, authoritarian left and a Center authoritarian/Center party. Probably also nationalist parties and something akin to the MRLP

    Having read the threads i have been quite dismayed at what is on offer on the whole and the only people to improve my opinion of them are Aph and Hazzer albeit Hazzer won't win and Aph has a horrid reputation (plus wants too many parties albeit would at least be tough elsewhere).

    I voted RON.

    Should others reading this also choose to vote RON in this first round, i shall take it as given that my country needs me and declare my candidature for speaker of the Mhoc.

    *Que ron getting only my one vote.

    Was gonna vote for Aph but his manifesto was harsh af. adam9317 raised some good points, and I like the simulated elections proposal (PetrosAC). I have the most confidence in Petros and so my allegiance lies with him.

    I think you should change it to #YesWeDan even though it barely makes sense, it's catchy

    With 50 votes the exit polls are suggesting that RON has won 50.000001% of the vote.

    Also, with the Liberal defections can the speaker confirm that all voters are actually MP's.

    I believe there is precedent if the candidates all wish it.

    That wouldn't happen tonight though seeing as I am assuming he will be requesting a list of voters, and no doubt a proxy who has not left the UG will have voted, or the actual MP who's forgotten they should be away...!

    I can't confirm anything, though I feel it is best to verify these results. This will mean a day's delay in the election process, but it is important in order to preserve the integrity of said process.

    So does the integrity of a general election not need preserving?
