Simfan, do you expect us to appear in ties and appropriate suits to that convention? If yes, can you send us your detailed instructions as to what we should and should not wear at least a few days in advance? Thanks!

For everyone's information, here's our bylaws:

Membership

Quote
1.   All members registered with the RG shall be granted membership in the Whig Party.
2.   For registered members, the party’s endorsement will appear on the ballot as per Atlasian Law.
3.   A member may be expelled from the party by a majority vote if that person behaves in such a way as to the detriment of the party.

Leadership

1.   The party leadership shall consist of two offices: chairman and vice chairman.
2.   The chairman is the executive leader of the party, chief spokesman, and presides over the party convention.
3.   The chairman and vice chairman will be elected every four months by public IRV votes within the thread of the party. The chairman and vice chairman elections shall occur in April, August, and December.
4.   The vice chairman assists the chairman in providing executive leadership. The vice-chairman becomes chairman in the event of a vacancy.
5.   The chairman and vice chairman must be members of the party.

Convention

1.   A convention will be called by the chairman one week before every regularly scheduled federal election.
2.   At a convention, members may propose amendments to the bylaws and platform. These amendments are adopted if they pass with a majority vote.
3.   Candidates not in the party may petition for the party’s endorsement for an upcoming election. Members of the party also may move to endorse candidates. Members are automatically granted endorsement, but all other endorsements must pass by a majority vote.
4.   A member of the party may call a vote of no confidence in the leadership of either the chairman or vice chairman. If the vote receives a majority, an election is held to fill the executive office in question.

A suit jacket and tie should suffice. Wink Informal attire.

It makes sense to differentiate between posts that are related to Atlasia and those who have nothing to do with Atlasia. I judge Pingvin by his actions in this game, and when I look at his record in the game I only see things such as the "IDS Cell Phone While Driving Ban Act" or "Access for Afghan Women Act" - terribly fascist, isn't it?

You'd better be outraged at the path your Liberal Party is taking because if you guys continue to recruit libertarians, centrists and leftists at the same time it will become less and less clear what your party stands for. Wink

To sum up, there is no reason why Pingvin should not serve as chairman of the Whig Party since he is a fine player.

Zuwo, you make something of a point, but at what point do you seperate the horrid racist views of an individual from their ability to occasionaly act like a non-bigot.

I'm glad you at least resonded. I see the rest of the Atlasian right could care less about having and unabashed bigot as party leader.

But then there's precedence for that......

Let's hold a Vote of No Confidence on the vacant Vice Chair post.

Quote
Do you have confidence in the current Vice Chair (vacant)?

[ ] Yes
[ ] No

This vote is necessary due to Pingvin's temporary resignment and my elevation to the office of Chairman. After this vote, we shall proceed to elect a new Vice Chair.

Voting ends in 48 hours.

Voting is closed. As expected, there is no confidence in our current Vice Chair named "vacant".

The next thing we should do is elect a new Vice Chair. If you are interested in the post, please step forward.

Welcome! Unfortunately, there's too much bureaucracy in this game. Tongue

Welcome. I am looking forward to having you in the game, the Mideast region and the party. However, the current registration requirements of this game state that a poster must have at least 50 posts in order to become a player. I'm sorry. But please come back once you have 50 posts! Smiley

Are there other people who are interested in the position of Vice Chair? So far we have Simfan and 20RP12 who are running for Vice Chair.

Since apparently there aren't any other candidates for vice chair of the Whig Party, I hereby open a vote on the vice chairmanship.

Voting ends in 96 hours (4 days).

Having received 3 out of 5 votes cast, Simfan34 is elected Vice Chair of the Whig Party.

Congrats, Simfan!
