Manifesto Length Amendment

This House shall adjust the Guidance Document as follows:

In the Guidance Document, amend clause 4 of the General Elections section from:

4) Manifestos submitted must be less than 450 words.
i) Manifestos may not contain more than two image files.
ii) Manifestos may contain one audio or video file:
(A)lasting less than 90 seconds
(B)containing less than 200 words (not included in the manifesto word count)
(C)not infringing on copyright law
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.

to:

4) Manifestos submitted must be less than 600 words.
i) Manifestos may not contain more than two image files.
ii) Manifestos may contain one audio or video file:
(A)lasting less than 90 seconds
(B)containing less than 200 words (not included in the manifesto word count)
(C)not infringing on copyright law
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 600 words, the Speaker will cut the manifesto at the 600-word mark.

Notes:

The aim of this amendment is to give parties slightly more room in which to put across their policies for general election manifestos. Expanding the word limit to 600 words would allow parties to express themselves better without having to compromise on the content of the manifesto.

Nay. This is the work of a small number of members looking to stroke their own egos and will damage engagement with the House.
