Esteemed members of the General Assembly.

Eections for a three-person Praisidïeu will be held at the same time as every Cosa election. This election will run from June 15th to July 1st, 2024 (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 May 9, 2024 and will close 10 days after that, on May 19th.
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).



LETS GO FIOVA!

Thank you for pointing it out!
Didn't have my coffee yet, I'm sorry.
Also, I'll send the e-mails as well.

NOMINATION

Name: Miestră Schivă

Affiliation: Free Democrats of Talossa / Fiovan Republicans

50 words: Fiova is unique among Talossa's provinces for its directly democratic constitution where all citizens have equal rights to govern. So why are Fiovans not getting involved? Are we going to let Vuode and Cézembre make us look weak? ANSWER NO! We might as well merge if we don't get active.

Azul, fiováns. I was wondering, given that we didn't get enough nomations and that seems like a common theme, what if we change the Praisideu to last 3 Cosas instead of 1?

No. Having *some* kind of election every Cosa term keeps people at least aware that Fiova exists. We could elect a single Capitan instead, but that usually led to NO nominations.
