Esteemed members of the General Assembly (that means everyone) of the Free Province of Fiôvâ (that's us):

According to the Constitution of our Province, elections for a three-person Praisidïeu (standing committee of the General Assembly) will be held at the same time as every Cosa election. This election will run from Januarty 15 to February 1, 2023 (in just over a month).

Under the Fiôván Elections and Referendums Law (ERL), Title I Section 3, as Secretary of State I am required to submit to the General Assembly the rules by which I will carry out this election.

Therefore, I hereby declare that the rules for the upcoming election of the Praisidïeu will be as follows:

1. Nominations for the Praisidïeu (Title III Sections 1-2) will open on January 1, 2023 and will close 1 week after that, on January 8.
Under Title III Section 2.1, such a nomination includes the candidate's full name; their party affiliation (if any); and a statement, no longer than fifty words, of the candidate's aims and objectives (optional).
Please make these nominations in this thread, or by personal communication with myself.
2. The period between close of nominations and start of voting (Title III Section 4) will therefore be one week, as determined by the Chancery's timetable for the national elections.
3. the actual process of voting and the production of the "ballot paper" (Title II Section 2) will be delegated to the National Chancery, whom I have asked to use the same voting mechanism as used for Senäts elections. This will allow "write-in" candidates (Title III, Section 5.3.1): the voters may give any citizen, not just the officially nominated candidates, a preference.
4. Once the Chancery reports all the votes, I will count them using the OpaVote website using "ERS97 STV" rules. I certify that this will provide a result as close as makes no difference to that set out in our law. (Title V, Section 12).


Who's up for it? Come on Fiôváns, let's gooooo!! (if you please, please).

I'm happy to foreshadow my nomination, give me a little while to write my 50 words.

AHEM. Miestra Schiva declares candidacy for the Praisidieu.

50 words: Fiova is unique with its direct-democracy system inherited from the old Republic. If Talossan national politics are going to take a conservative, monarchist turn, then that aspect of Fiova must be defended intransigently. I want to see older citizens - including Reviensadeirs - taking an interest in our recent cultural revival.

Therefore, on the fifth count, Bråneu Excelsio gets the 3rd and final seat on the Praisidïeu. This is remarkable as he got zero first preference votes and beat two candidates who did get a vote - mainly due to benefiting from "second-choice" votes from other successful candidates.

Congratulations to the new Praisidïeu. I welcome the Provincial SoS and anyone else present double-checking my data entry and/or the vote-counting procedure.

I should note that - since there were more than 10 candidates chosen as part of our "write-in' ballot system - I got charged $10 by the OpaVote website. I am happy to see this as a donation to the Fiovan treasury.
