Sending amendments in private messages is not the best way to work with members, this thread can be used for discussion amendments, finding seconders, and working to write amendments.
Would anyone second this amendment?
In the Guidance Document change the section Party Formation from
(1) If wanting to form a party, someone should put a thread in the Model House of Commons forum spelling out their main principles.
(2) Interested people should PM the Speaker and proposer.
(3) In deciding whether to allow a party to form, the Speaker should be primarily mindful of the support for the party. Precedent sets the hurdle as 10 eligible voters showing support, though the Speaker may want to consider other factors, such as whether those voters are active House of Commons members.
(1) Users proposing a new party should create a thread in the Model House of Commons forum setting out the party's main principles.
(2) Interested users may declare their intention to join the new party by posting on the proposal thread or sending a private message to the proposers or Speaker.
(3) When deciding whether to allow a party to form, the Speaker should consider;
a. Electoral support for the party on TSR.
b. The party should have five active members in the MHoC, or 10 eligible voters.
c. New parties should aim to differentiate themselves from existing parties, however, if the new party is not sufficiently different from an existing party, the new party may still be formed if the expected activity of the new party can reasonably be claimed to be above the activity of the existing party.
This thread is a very good idea; I hope people will use this as it could fix a system that is currently broken.
I will happily second your amendment.
The thread's a good idea but your amendment idea, however, I do not support.
Thread I support, amendment I do not.
Great idea with the thread!
With regards to the amendment - why don't you insert a phrase saying 'Jacob, Jammy, Joe and Hazzer can create a party because we want to'
I think this thread is a very good idea.
On the whole, I like the amendment too, with the exception of section (3)c.
