Model House of Commons By-Election

Following the loss of seats 31, 34, 35, 37, 41, and 48, a by-election will take place.

This election will take place using the D'Hondt method, with parties and independents permitted to stand. Labour, the Libertarians, and the Liberal Democrats may not stand as parties, having lost seats in this process.

Independent candidates may not be a member of any party between the start of voting and the final declaration, otherwise they will be disqualified, and there is no minimum time or post requirement for being a candidate. Independent candidates can of course not win more than one seat each, and may not be MPs (including proxy MPs) at any point during the voting process (from 4th to 8th September).

The deadline for manifestos is 6pm on Wednesday 31st October. Manifestos must be submitted to both me and the Deputy Speaker, Jammy Duel, and must conform to the manifesto rules set out in the Guidance Document.
Manifesto Rules
i) Manifestos may not contain more than two image files.
ii) Manifestos may contain one audio or video file:
ii) a) lasting less than 90 seconds
ii) b) containing less than 200 words (not included in the manifesto word count)
ii) 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.


The full timetable for this election is as follows:

Day 0 (Wed 24 Oct) – Election is announced by The Speaker. The Speaker will inform interested candidates to submit their manifestos.
Day 7 (Wed 31 Oct) – All manifestos should have been received by The Speaker. 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 (Sun 04 Nov) – The election closes and seats are assigned.

This is the Mhoc rather than RL and statistically at least, there is every chance that i was born to a family poorer than yours.

Now, i must go pick up my Latte and pop off to M&S.

I would like to announce that I will be leaving the Libertarians in a few days to stand in this election as an independent candidate.

It will be interesting to see if a non-disgraced MP can replace you in the meantime.

Good luck however.

I think you don't understand the election process in this case—our party is going to stand as a party.

I hardly think an independent is a threat to the Tory war machine.
