Ok, I think this idea is popular enough, so I'll begin it,

here are my rules:

Each participant will be managing the campaign of a politician of their choice. The politician has to be alive as of this posting. The politician has to be a real person, and the more famous they are the more recognition points your candidate will get.

You may choose the party the candidate will enter the primaries for. You can enter as many as you want. However, keep in mind the party memberships. 

The parties you can choose from are as follows:

Centrist Democratic Party (Populist, centre right)
Democratic Union (Conservative, right wing)
Socialist Party (Social Democratic)
Liberal Party (Liberal, from left to right liberals)
Green Party (Green)
Communist Party (Communism, Trostkyist, etc)

Your candidate may also run as an independent, but if you choose only this, you can't run in the primaries.

Once enough time has passed, I will hold the primaries. Each candidate will get some money to spend in the mean time. I will give each candidate a starting amount based on how much name recognition they have. You can spend your money by doing different campaigny things in this thread. If you campaign well, you will get more money. Remember, being in more than one primary may dilute your funds!

Primaries will be held, with a different continent each night. Each country will hold a separate primary and will be worth a certain amount of delegates. Each delegate will be worth 1 million people. Larger countries will be divided up if they exceed 30 delegates, I'll make maps later. If a country has less than 500,000 it will share a primary with a neighbouring country until they get over 1 million together.

The winner of each primary will go the general election along with any independents. Those who are not independents will receive bonus money at this point based on their support.

ok, LET THE GAME BEGIN Smiley

Please post the following

Name of candidate:

U.S. Senator first candidate to declare intentions to run for President of the World

With the World Elections Board opening up nominations for President today, it did not take long before the first candidate announced his intentions of running for President. John Thune, a conservative still in his first term as a U.S. Senator filed his nomination papers today. He will run for the nomination of the Centrist Democratic Party, a coalition of moderate conservatives around the world. Thune served as a congressman in the U.S. House of Representatives for six years before being elected to the Senate representing the small state of South Dakota in 2004. Thune is a member of the Republican Party of the U.S., and is considered among the conservative mainstream of the party which is expected to back the more right wing Democratic Union Party.

Thune will be starting out with a campaign war chest of $2 million.

Thune's announcement from the South Dakota State Capital:

"I come together in front of my family, friends, colleagues, countrymen, and My Fellow Citizens of the world to announce my candidacy for President of the World. Our world is the backbone of our society, and for too long the world has been fighting over simple and complex issues, thanks to liberal stances on the issues in most of the world. I figured that everyone has had enough of infighting and wars with our neighbors, and want successful, and solid leadership, which can only be brought through a conservative candidate. I want to be considered that candidate.


A Photo from Thune's announcement speech.

Also missing from our world is strong religious, and family values.  Despite attempts by past leaders, these issues have been dropped to the background. I attend to bring these issues up, and also include the important issues, and how i plan to fix the issues. Despite my youth, i believe that i can get more things accomplished than any other candidate. With me as President, every part of the world will be equally respected and will have equal time. Thank you all for coming, and together we will win. Thank you."

'Lula' first Socialist candidate to enter race for President

Brazilian President Luiz Inacio "Lula" da Silva has entered the race for President of the World. The 64 year old has been president of Brazil for the last 7 years. Lula has decided to run for the nomination of the Socialist Party, which seems an appropriate fit for his native Workers' Party. It is likely that Lula will have the backing of much of Latin America's moderate left wing. Before his term as president, Lula served as a Federal Duputy from 1986 to 1991. Lula is the second person to declare his intentions for President of the World. U.S. Senator John Thune announced his intentions last night for the Centrist Democrat Party.

Lula will be starting out with a campaign war chest of $80 million.

I haven't really got time to play this, but I think that given the current economic crisis, Peter Costello (Member for Higgins, 1990-2009, Deputy Leader of the Liberal Party, 1994-2007, Treasurer of Australia, 1996-2007, Chair of OECD Ministerial, 2000, Chair of APEC Finance Ministers, 2007, Chair of the G20, 2006, a Governor of the World Bank and Asian Development Bank for ~10 years, currently on an Independent Advisory Board to the World Bank) would make a strong candidate.

Fiscally conservative, he delivered twelve consecutive federal budgets, ten of which were surpluses. He paid off over $96 billion in debt inherited when he took office, to leave the government finances in a surplus position. He also re-regulated aspects of the financial services industry in the late 1990s, which has resulted in the larger Australian banks being in a position to increase their market capitalisation during the current financial crisis.

If someone were to play as him, he would be a member of the Democratic Union.

Brown enters race for President

Former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown became the second candidate for the Socialist nomination for President of the World, today. Brown will be competing against another political heavyweight in Brazilian President, Lula da Silva. Brown served as a Member of Parliament since 1983 and served as Chancellor of the Exchequer from 1997 to 2007 when he became Prime Minister. He served has Prime Minister from 3 years before losing to Conservative David Cameron earlier this year. Brown is probably the most well known candidate so far in this election, but is marred by his party's downfall in the most recent British elections.

Brown will be starting out with a campaign war chest of $80 million.

Why not give it a go? I don't think it would take too much of your time.

I've already got my fingers in a few pies, plus it looks extremely likely we'll be in an election campaign within the next couple of weeks (PM's widely tipped to be visiting the GG on Sunday morning for an August 28 election date). If so, I'm going to have virtually no spare time.

Also edited my earlier quote here, to finish the thought since that first sentence ended quite abruptly before.

Ailing Castro enters race for President

Former Cuban leader Fidel Castro has entered the race to become President of the world. Castro, who served as Prime Minister of Cuba from 1959 to 1976 and President from 1976 to 2008 will be running for the Communist Party nomination. Castro resigned due to health reasons, but remains as the First Secretary of the Cuban Communist Party. His brother, Raul is currently President. If Castro became President of the World, it is likely his brother will do day to day operations, and he may do the campaigning too. Castro is 83. Castro is well known around the world, and is loved or reviled. It will be interesting to see Castro fight in his first multi-partisan election, if he wins the Communist nomination. He will surely be backed by Latin America's leftists who adore him.

Castro will be starting out with a campaign war chest of $100 million.

Brown travels to South Asia visiting Thailand, Indonesia, and the Philippines.  At each stop he speaks of his ability to lead Britain into an economic recovery, he also reuses the 2010 Labour campaign banner: "A Future Fair for All". 

After South Asia Brown travels to Japan and then China, both times speaking about the world economy and cooperation with all countries.

Brown travels to South Korea and then across the Yellow Sea into China. During this time, a TV ad is released in all of the countries holding their primary on 22 July:

(Translated to the appropriate languages, of course)
"I'm Gordon Brown. I served as Prime Minister of Great Britian for three years, and Chancellor of the Exchequer for ten years before that. Through my economic plan, Britian was able to move out of the recession and start a recovery. I know that true global recovery can only be reached by a fair plan for all. That's why I stand for a future fair for all."

Lula travels to China where he gives his first major speech:

"I'm Lula. I was born into poverty, I received only a skills diploma in machinery and only a grade 4 level education, I sold trinkets and food on the streets to make money for my family, I struggled for the rights of workers and everyday folks while in trade unions in the context of a dictatorship which was dominated by the interests of the reactionary elite. I know what poverty is like, because I grew up in poverty. I know what fighting for values is like, because I fought for the rights of my colleagues in tough times and got sent to jail. I know what lacking quality healthcare is like, because I lost my first wife during her pregnancy. I fought for my country, for the progress and wealth of my nation.

When I became President of Brazil in 2002, the economy wasn't doing too well and most importantly poverty was a major issue and the everyday folks in Brazil hadn't seen the so-called worth of the elite's liberal policies. Now, in 2010, poverty and crime has fallen drastically in Brazil thanks to our government's social programs which have worked beyond anybody's wildest expectations. Brazil is now an aspiring world power and a country which is respected around the world. In the midst of the financial crisis, Brazil moved out of recession quicker than any other country in the world and we are now posting a tremendous 9% GDP growth rate for 2010. And this tremendous recovery, actually, beyond recovery, a tremendous boom, didn't come at the expense of our social programs or our people. Our work has proven to the world that a strong social welfare state of popular progress is NOT incompatible with a market economy of the twenty-first century.

I'm Lula, and I, unlike any other politician, know what poverty is like and what it is to live in shantytowns and that's why I'm fighting for a fairer and better future for all the people of the world. Thank you very much, thank you."

Nazif announces a series of campaign stops in Europe; Italy, Germany, and Spain are where the bulk of the stops are, though he visits Portugal, Ukraine, and Russia as well. He touts his modernization of Egypt and his integrity. He also notes that he is the only non-Christian in the race, and can bring a fresh perspective to the world stage. "To those who think my Islamic faith may lead me to do radical things, I tell you that I liberated the press in my country and gave my people access to the internet."
