Wittenberg / Re: Senate Fees for the 56th Cosa
« on: June 15, 2021, 10:26:51 AM »
I've received two of the three fees from our newly-elected Senators:

Martì-Paír Furxhéir has PAID IN FULL.
Breneir Itravilatx has PAID IN FULL.

I still need one from/on behalf of Ian Tamoran.

The fee is US$5, and payable via PayPal to treasury@talossa.com or stamps@talossa.com; both are addresses on the same PayPal account. Arrangements other than PayPal can be made, that's just the one that's easiest for me to process.

May other citizens pay on behalf?  If so I can forward funds later today such that Cézembre is fully compliant.

I suppose this is moot for this specific instance but it does beg the question from inland revenue whether that entity can track payments provided (with notes) on behalf of another person or party, or for example if Cézembre were to establish a treasury that would in turn pay for said fees? 

IF we grow, and if we should continue to use election systems that have a small cost when supporting a larger population, there would not be something as regressive as a poll tax, but perhaps some kind of lottery or drawing where people put in a small wager (if they wish with no obligation to participate) on some randomly determined outcome independently verifiable (such as the last 100ths digit of a stock index on some future date) then the winner of said activity would receive half of the pot of funds and Cézembre would receive the other half?  Would inland revenue be able to establish a specific Cézembre account within the ledgers?

Cézembre / OFFICiAL POLLING PLACE FOR L'ETATS DE CÉZEMBRE
« on: June 15, 2021, 12:10:29 AM »
This is the official public polling place for the election for  l'Etats de Cézembre, with notice posted in https://wittenberg.talossa.com/index.php?topic=905.0 and also sent via email to all citizens.  Those who wish to vote by secret ballot should reference a link that has been sent to them via Electionbuddy.com and if there is any issue in receipt of same to make a declaration here for assistance or send a personal message to Le Sénéchal de Cézembre, @X. Pol Briga who has been re-elected as per A8: The Sénéchal Elections Act of the CÉZEMBREAN ADMINISTRATION GUIDE as being the sole candidate.

The candidates are as follows:
@Txosuè Éiric Rôibeardescù as representative of LCC - The League of Centre Conservatives
@X. Pol Briga as representative of B - Balançeu / Balance
@Ián Tamorán as representative of FD - the Free Democrats of Talossa
@Glüc da Dhi S.H. as representative of P - the Partisan party

Citizens should select one candidate.  The total votes a candidate receives will place them into the allocation system for seats as defined in Article 9 of the CÉZEMBREAN ADMINISTRATION GUIDE (CAG)  There are up to 20 seats assigned in the election, but one person may only hold a maximum of 6 seats.  A candidate must receive at least one vote in order to enter the allocation process.  As per the proclamation of election, referencing various parts of the CAG, since the province is conducting the election, there is not a process for write in nominations, and there are named candidates who represent a party who are allocated seats until such time as they may allocate seats to any other Cézembre they see fit.

Since a budget for this activity has not been established, it shall proceed under the free version of Electionbuddy, which allows for a simple election for up to 20 ballots.  Since there are 21 citizens currently, Le Sénéchal de Cézembre, @X. Pol Briga offers to forego a secret ballot and vote in public (as he has always done).  Other citizens may still choose to vote in public or via secret ballot, and there will be no administrative access to the secret ballot until the end of the election period on 28 June (29 June CZT) and any other person may request access to the balloting system to review the results.

I deleted that previous message that was out of order and thank the King for assistance in this matter.

Update 12 June

l'Etats

@Txosuè Éiric Rôibeardescù as representative of LCC - The League of Centre Conservatives
@X. Pol Briga as representative of B - Balançeu / Balance
@Ián Tamorán as representative of FD - the Free Democrats of Talossa
@Glüc da Dhi S.H. as representative of P - the Partisan party

All elected lead officials would have the option to split seats won among others representing their party.  The most any one person can hold is 6 seats.

All other citizens have been contacted via email as to whether they wish to stand for office in the election, but there have been no additional positive responses as of yet, with note that Ián S.G. Txaglh stating as not to stand for potential election to the next session.

Le Sénéchal

@X. Pol Briga who will withdraw from candidacy should any other citizen of Cézembre desire the office such that if only one should stand then they would be elected immediately as per provisions of the CAG, otherwise if there were yet another additional candidate then there would be an election.

I'd like to register the Partisan Party (P) for the upcoming Etats elections.

Thank you.  May I list your name as associated with the Party on the ballot, or is there some other individual to name in this hybrid style of a party list?

Well my argument is really that according to the constitution " Each party will receive a number of
seats, equal to the number of high quotients it received.
Each party may divide its seats amongst Cézembrian
citizens as it sees fit.", so you could add my name to the ballot but then in my view I could still assign these seats to someone else (or reassign them if I were to resign as Mol'E), even if Im not planning to do so.

Thanks - I will add your name with that understanding.  My proclamation has not been approved by the Crown or its representatives, thus it may not come to pass at any rate.

i am sorry to say that, but i will not stand for office in the l'etats.

Acknowledged.  Perhaps there will be some other candidate from NPW.

Request to approve the Election proclamation to Governor-General @C. M. Siervicül has not yet been received - have sent messages via PM and email.

On Sunday, 13 June I shall be traveling to the Alaska portion of Florencia and thus may have limited access to electronic media from time to time through Friday, 25 June.  I would like to setup the Electionbuddy system previously tested with as many preconfigured candidates as possible by 12 June, such that the election could be launched as required on 14 June to take place either in these forums by public vote or via the election system by secret vote.

Florencia / Re: Nimlet Session (Jun 2021-Present)
« on: June 09, 2021, 11:38:31 AM »
After consultation, B - Balançeu / Balance assigns the 4 seats of the Nimlet to @Ieremiach Ventrutx who may at their discretion subdivide the representation.

Florencia / Re: Nimlet Session (Jun 2021-Present)
« on: June 09, 2021, 11:09:32 AM »
CURRENT SEAT ASSIGNMENTS

3 seats - Breneir Itravilatx (Gov/Senats/TNC)
1 seats -  (FreeDems)
4 seats -  (Balanceu)


As of 4 June, the Chancery has indicated the certification of the provincial election results.

Pursuant to Section 4(a) of the Florencian Constitution: "No later than ten days following the conclusion of each provincial election, the Governor of Florencia shall have determined and announced the total number of seats for the incoming Nimlet, which number shall be equal to the number of ballots returned in the election, less those returned indicating “Present”, and augmented by one additional seat for each incumbent Senator for Florencia, and one additional seat for the Governor;" The total number of non-Present provincial ballots returned was 6.

Pursuant to Section 4(b) There is also one seat for the incumbent Senator and the incumbent Governor.
I hereby appoint myself to the incumbent Governor seat and well, myself, to the incumbent Senator seat. I also note this is getting quite meta.

The total number of seats in the Nimlet is therefore set at 8.

This leaves 6 seats unassigned by the party leaders.

Based on votes received:

Balanceu (B) is entitled to 4 seats.
Free Democrats (FreeDems) are entitled to 1 seat.
Talossan National Congress (TNC) is entitled to 1 seat.


Party leaders (@Þon Txoteu É. Davinescu, O.SPM and @xpb) please advise on your specific appointee.

Thank you for the information - I will be discussing this with possible delegates for B - Balançeu / Balance

The Lobby / Re: Nominations for Seneschal - 56th Cosa
« on: June 04, 2021, 03:32:52 PM »
Anyway, is there a rule that says a party can't nominate more than one candidate?

If not, the KLüP nominates Miestră Schivă, UrN and Dixhet Fira.

Should Dixhet Fira accept nomination, and subsequently be elected, then the seats will be reallocated for B such that Dixhet will have the 20 seat max and I shall retain 13.

Wittenberg / Re: 56th Cosa General Election Official Results
« on: June 04, 2021, 03:27:52 PM »
I would like to thank the Secretary of State for running a smooth election.  No easy feat.

Congratulations to the parties and elected officials.

As some of you may know, I served as a Commissioner on the Electoral Commission.  There are three ballots I voted to invalidate.  I am working to prepare a summary, based entirely on public information, to explain why I would have invalidated those ballots.  This is not meant to cast aspersions on any individual or body, and only facts that can be verified from already-existing public record will be used (i.e. nothing learned in confidence will be included).  Further, there will be no mention on whether the EC deliberated on the issues or, if so, the nature of those deliberations. My hope is that the Ziu will use this as a chance to find some ways to remedy potential issues with ballot casting and the verification process.

-V

Thank you for your due diligence, we look forward to your report.  In the allocations of Cosa seats, I raised a question regarding potential conflicts within the election law for consideration.
