Notification of an upcoming By-Election
I hearby give notice to the house that two by-elections will take place with all parties able to submit one candidate. Please note that I have extended the dates a little further to bring this election in line with the next vote review.
The schedule will be as follows:
24/02 – Election is announced by The Speaker.
24/02 - The Speaker will inform interested candidates/parties to submit their manifestos
05/03 – All manifestos should have been received by The Speaker.
05/03 - 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”.
09/03 – The election closes.
12/03 – Seats are formally taken.
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.
Also a point of order Mr Speaker but only one by-election will occur, but for two seats (your terminology is incorrect in our single party list one constituency land). You also forgot to mention that it will be multiple choice.

I am curious to see what the propaganda machine produces though 🤔
