[This is the original thread for 56th Cosâ Mençei nominations.  I've modified the thread subject to avoid a second thread declaring nominations closed and all-that. - GV]

As the first Clark will be in July (unless I'm completely fuzzled), I shall hereby and forthwith (and with no objection) appoint myself as 'Acting' Mençéi pending the election of a new one, or my return to office for this coming Cosâ.

Nominations for Mençéi for the 56th Cosâ are open until Wednesday 9 June 2021 2000 CDT at which point I will open voting.

I nominate myself for Mençéi for the 56th Cosâ. 

Welcome, one and all, to the Senäts for the 56th Cosâ!

GV, Mençéi in the 55th Cosâ

Someone else, get your name into this process.  The possibility exists I may be in Cabinet this coming term and cannot serve as Mençéi.

In that case, I throw my hat in and nominate myself.

Nominations for Mençei are now closed with Béneditsch Ardpresteir and myself as the candidates.

Because I am to be in the next Cabinet, due to the Cabinet Code of Conduct as well as my own party's rules, I cannot be both Mençei and a Member of Cabinet at the same time.  Therefore, I am removing myself as a candidate for Mençei in the 56th Cosâ.

As Béneditsch Ardpresteir is the only other person to put their name forward for Mençei, and as nominations for that office are now closed, it is my happy duty to vote for and congratulate Béneditsch Ardpresteir, Mençei for the 56th Cosâ, there being no need for a proper round of voting with only one candidate.

It has been an honor to serve as presiding officer over this august body a second time.  I know Béneditsch will do a great job.

Is it not proper to have a confirmation vote? I seem to remember this happening in the past.

Am not averse to the idea. However, in that case, @GV will have to take the call, and preside over such voting if it takes place. In the alternate, the longest sitting Senator should preside only for the purpose of this voting.

So... why are nominations closed already?  It's currently 9 June 6:33.

I'll nominate myself, in this case.

Because I mis-read my own rules, that's why.  I will take care of this.
