Is there anyone that wants to do the job?

Also, can anyone please tell me: WHY this colour palate? It makes my eyes hurt, and I mean that literally. Can I change this to nice shades of bright white, cream and beige, or something? I have finally changed the layout and look. This is nice.

I second the nomination and given the time frame move that we go right to a vote.

If one other person supports the nomination, we don’t need a vote

Apropos of nothing, since the PTB are afire about provincial mergers, I want to say that I am fully in favor of M-M absorbing other provinces (it is our right and destiny), but I have two preconditions that I think are absolutely necessary to such mergers:

1. We should add their cultural distinctiveness to our own, but not lose ours in the process.  The province should remain named "Maritiimi-Maxhestic" in large part, symbolically recognizing our extraordinary history as a beacon of provincial activity and prosperity.
2.  There should not be any diminution of M-M political power.  This means we should aim for a provincial merger that maintains the political separateness of the entities in order to preserve our Senats votes, confederating them without obliterating either.

This would not be a merger in any real sense.

Indeed, I think we can reject citizen Davinescu’s proposals as being full of grandeur and in bad faith towards other provinces. I have never liked M-M’s tendency for overbearing and arrogant “provinciotism”.
