I will be absent from the 4th of August to the 23rd of August. I am not certain as to what arrangement to pursue here.

The next election starts on August 17th, so you'll be out for the remainder of the term. I suggest that you resign from the Speakership several days before your departure and call a vote on your successor.
He should resign his seat too (though it wouldn't be a problem to run in that election).

In the election or in the Assembly?

If you feel like you can still provide debate, and a vote in the Assembly, than by all means, stay.  However, if you're just staying to be a vote, the right thing to do is resign.  Regardless, your stated absence means you should step aside for someone else to be elected Speaker.

We can call a special election and at least have a chance at bringing activity in the Assembly back to a more acceptable level.
...

If I may interrupt, I believe that under the current law you would have to appoint Interim Representatives to fill the vacancy, not hold a special election. [/nitpick]

I'll be submitting petitions for the recall of Representatives Pyrofox and Mondale unless someone explains why I should not within the next 48 hours.


Have they officially missed three consecutive votes, or one month of debate time?  Makes it a lot easier if they have..

I appreciate your show of confidence, however, I have no interest in the office of Speaker.

If drafted, I will not run.

If nominated, I will not accept.

If elected, I will not serve.

I do not see how the Governor can support me for Speaker since he disaproves of my performance as a Representative, and I do not see how Representative Jones can support me for Speaker since he wants me banned from the forum, which would obviously make it impossible for me to become Speaker, or anything else in this fantasy government. 

I encourage the Governor to take whatever steps he can constitutionally to deal with this matter.

Article II, Section 8

8. Vacancies in the Legislative Assembly shall be filled in a manner specified by Law, and until such determination is made, by Gubernatorial appointment. Vacancies occur upon resignation, recall, impeachment, failure to swear in within one week of the legislative sessionís opening, failure to vote on three consecutive pieces of legislation without publicly declaring absence, or failure to participate in Assembly debate for one month.

You're the next-most-senior Representative, are you not? My request to ban you is solely based on your actions beyond the fourth wall, which I intend to keep standing.

I'm not sure I'm ready for all this speakery responsibility, but if I must, I'll do it.

I deeply apologize for my lack of activity in this Assembly, but my work load will not be letting up until well into September. I am a Labor Party member because I am actually a member of the working class. I do not simply talk the talk. But I do understand that this body needs to move on with its agenda.

For this, I hereby resign from this Northeast Assembly, effective asap.

Hopefully this won't be the last you hear of me. Once things settle down a bit, I may run again. Thank you everyone for your cooperation, and please remember, this is only a game, don't take it too seriously Curly

I have decided to let my name stand for Speaker.

Simfan resigns the Speakership August 6 and new Assembly elections are August 17, so there is really not all that much more time left in this session.

Representative Jones, just what do you mean by "my actions"?

To be honest, I have never heard so much whining from so many malcontents in my entire life than that group of moaners, groaners, and complainers who were acting like six year olds and demanding I be banned from the forum.  There was obviously nothing wrong with "my actions," the ultimate proof being I am still on the forum.

I was somewhat disappointed, however, to see you join in that chorus of clowns.
