Assembly of Benito Seats Distribution, 55th Cosa
« on: August 15, 2020, 04:41:59 AM »
The certified election results are:

FREEDEMS   3
NPW   3
LEAGUE OF CENTRE CONSERVATIVES   1
PRESENT   2

Votes for PRESENT, of course, are not used for allocating seats, so seven votes were cast for seats. Since everybody else who cast votes cast them for parties, there are no issues of interpretation. We accordingly can go right ahead and use Hare-Niemeyer as usual:

Party Calculation Seats
Free Democrats                        3/(7/11) = 4 seats, 0.7142857 remainder
New Peculiar Way                      3/(7/11) = 4 seats, 0.7142857 remainder
League of Centre Conservatives 1/(7/11) = 1 seat, 0.5714 remainder

With two seats remaining and a two-way tie for largest remainder, the final distribution is:

Free Democrats, 5 seats
New Peculiar Way, 5 seats
League of Centre Conservatives, 1 seat.

Parties, name your BLAssemblymen.

This is hilarious, as the Free Democrats have no active party members in Benito!

Could anyone in Benito who voted Free Democrat please get in touch ASAP re: taking our seats? (I'll know if you're lying, lol)

Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Talossa. Ask me anything.

@Miestră Schivă, UrN, @Eiric S. Bornatfiglheu, and @Ian Plätschisch are reminded that we need members of the Benitan Legislative Assembly appointed.

ESB is reminded of this especially, since as both a resident and a party leader he can just appoint himself, rather than trying to find someone willing to take the seats.

I can't find any of the 5 people who voted FreeDem in Benito.

If I still can't find any by deadline, the seats will go to my coalition partner ESB.

I can't find any of the 5 people who voted FreeDem in Benito.
3. Three people voted FreeDem in the BLA election. What that got you was five seats.

I assign the 3 NPW seats to Eiric S. Bornatfiglheu.
5. Five seats were awarded to the NPW for the three votes the NPW got in the BLA election.

Anyway.  Invoking the traditional role of the Arvitieir Prima of Benito in just ramming things through in the teeth of inactivity, I'm going to assume the above posts constitute all the NPW and FreeDem seats being appointed to Eiric S. Bornatfiglheu, and that with his 91% majority of all seats and 100% majority of assigned seats, we can assume he's also got another term as Maestro.

In accordance with tradition, if anyone objects, they can yell at me, and I'll consider their objection.

According to the Benitian constitution, I cannot serve as Maestro and Sebator simultaneously.

Oh, yeah, forgot that, sorry.  I should go read the Constitution again . . .

Hmm.  "The first order of business of each newly assembled Assembly will be to elect a new Maestro from among its members."  That means the Maestro has to be a member of the Assembly.

Well. I'll accept a seat and the Maestroship, if you want to do it that way, Eiric.  Otherwise, we can, er, wait for someone else to volunteer?

I think that the best option for the time being is your idea.  So I assign you one of the FreeDem seats and nominate you are Maestro.
