    Greetings MP's...

    As a result of the third voting review of the term, one parliamentary seat havs a sufficiently low turnout to warrant a by-election.

    14) 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 by Friday 20th October (18:00) – 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.The provisions for the manifestos are as follows..

    4) Manifestos submitted must be less than 450 words.

    i) Manifestos may not contain more than two image files.
    ii) Manifestos may not contain audio or video files.
    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.

    Rats, i remembered it had passed the last voting period so excluded it from that by-election. For this one i copied, pasted and amended dates.

    For this by-election, 450 will remain but for the next that will come into force.
