My fellow South Pacificans and valued Minions,

I hope you are all doing well! I'm telegramming your Honourable Leadership with three matters that are all related to the World Assembly.

As you no doubt may be well aware, the Coalition has recently begun the voting round for the Delegate Election to select a South Pacifican as my successor. As a Minion, your vote is critically important and I warmly encourage you to cast it here. All the pertinent information has been laid out by Election Commissioner Kringalia and is accessible in the below dispatch.

The Delegacy is an important position of trust and a source of security for our thriving democracy. In this role, they are supported by the members of the Coral Guard which is a body of Minions who serve as a defence against external and internal security threats. In that vein, your endorsement of the Coral Guard is a vital contribution to the South Pacific! Endorsing is easy! Just click on the nations listed below, scroll down the page, and click the button 'Endorse ...'!

Last but not least, may I also encourage you to consider the merits of the current proposal before the Security Council, 'Commend One Small Island'. The determination of the Cabinet is a recommendation to vote against "due to concern about the quality of the proposal's research and construction". In saying that, I trust you will evaluate the proposal by your own national standards and vote accordingly.

All of which underscores the centrality of the World Assembly in the South Pacific. It is perhaps the most visible element of our world and I hope you will take this opportunity to consider joining the global institution if you haven't already done so.

Thank you for taking the time to read this telegram and I wish you all the very best! ^-^

Your Supreme Leader,
Amerion

Delegate of the South Pacific,

The Supreme Leader of all Minions, His Majesty, the Admiral Delegate General Stewie G., Delegate of the South Pacific, the Magnificent Ultimate Leader of all of NationStates, High Autocrat of the New Minion Order, King of Kings, Democratic President and Prime-Minister-For-Life, Chairman and Supreme General Secretary Admiral of the People’s Republic of the South Pacific, Invincible and All-Triumphant Lord Commander, Grand Dentist of the Ice Cream Association, Chief Ophthalmologist and board-certified Dermatologist of the South Pacific Special Forces, Brilliant Genius of Humanity, Noble Prize winner in everything but Peace, and Benevolent Oppressor and Ruthless Protector of the Expendable People of Amerion.

January 2022 Delegate Election
.
Schedule | How To | Ballot | Result
.

I come before you to announce that it is once again time to elect the Delegate of the South Pacific. The Delegate is the regional head of state and is the primary official in charge of helping maintain the security of the region, promoting growth and activity, and serving as an advisor to the government.

Elections for the Delegate are administered by an Election Commissioner. The election, as laid out in Articles 2 and 3 of the LinkElections Act, is as follows:

  • Candidates must declare their candidacy and post a campaign and a conflict of interest disclosure in the public campaign area.

  • A first round of voting will be held on the regional forum with all candidates and an option to re-open nominations, where voters will be able to list candidates whom they approve without regard to any order of preference.

  • If either of the two most approved candidates has less than a majority of approvals, then the option to re-open nominations shall be considered the winner in place of said candidate and the election shall revert to the nominations period.

  • A second round of voting will be held via regional poll with the two candidates (or more, if a tie intervened) who advanced from the first round, where voters will be able to select the candidate of their preference.

The remainder of this dispatch will contain relevant information for candidates and voters alike, so that this election process may proceed as smoothly as possible. Good luck and thank you for participating in our democratic process!

Yours faithfully,

Kris Kringle
Election Commissioner

SCHEDULE

The election shall proceed according to the following schedule. If any changes are made, they shall be reflected below.

  • Declarations begin on 01 January 2022 00:00 (UTC) and end on 08 January 2022 00:00 (UTC) Link(countdown).

  • Campaigning begins on 01 January 2022 00:00 (UTC) and ends on 08 January 2022 00:00 (UTC) Link(countdown).

  • Voting for the first round begins on 08 January 2022 00:00 (UTC) and ends on 11 January 2022 00:00 (UTC) Link(countdown).

  • Voting for the second round begins on 12 January 2022 00:00 (UTC) and ends on 19 January 2022 00:00 (UTC) Link(countdown).

Please consider time zone differences when reviewing the deadline for each stage in the election. It is your responsibility to ensure that you comply with all legal requirements within the mandated time frames Link(time zone conversion).

HOW TO

RUN FOR OFFICE

Candidates must comply with the following requirements within the declarations period (see schedule above) to be considered for election.

  • Be a legislator before the beginning of the declarations period.

  • Be eligible for World Assembly membership. Ineligibility will be grounds for disqualification.

  • Have an endorsement count equal to, or higher than, 80% of the endorsement cap at the start of the declarations period. The endorsement cap is currently set at 361 endorsements.

  • Declare their candidacy or accept a nomination via a reply to the designated thread.

  • Post a thread within the public campaign area containing a campaign and a conflict of interest disclosure. The disclosure must contain all potential conflicts of interest within the region and abroad. Submission of false or incomplete information in a conflict of interest disclosure may be grounds for disqualification.

Once a candidate meets all the above requirements they will be considered for the ballot and may campaign as they see fit, subject to all applicable laws and standards of conduct.

VOTE

The election consists of a first round of voting held via Approval Vote and open to all legislators who gained their status prior to the start of the election, followed by a second round of voting held via regional poll and open to all Native World Assembly Residents.

There are two ways of casting a vote. In both cases, the act of voting involves selecting the candidate whom the voter prefers.

  • A public vote may be cast via the regional poll that is set up by the Commissioner. The poll will automatically restrict voting only to eligible nations.

  • An absentee vote may be cast via a post on the RMB that tags the Commissioner. An absentee vote may only be cast by nations who will be on deployment with Special Forces at the conclusion of the vote, as certified in advance by the Minister of Defence.

Please consider time zone differences when reviewing the deadline for each stage in the election. It is your responsibility to ensure that you comply with all legal requirements within the mandated time frames Link(time zone conversion).

We would much appreciate it if you endorsed all of these nations, as it helps with regional security and will lead to rises in the endorsement cap. Endorsing other nations doesn't affect your nation's foreign policies and statistics. Your nation will receive the title of SWAN Knights and be mentioned on the next monthly award volume if you endorse all of the above nations. Read more about why we recommend you to do this here.

With your nation in the WA, you can participate in these activities in our region:

  • You can vote on WA resolutions and participate in the Local Council elections and the Delegate elections now!

  • Help regional nations and the Delegate decide on WA resolutions that govern the world by participating in the Office of WA Legislation voting program. Our region has the second strongest voting power on the WA so let your voice be heard!

  • Alternatively, you can join our regional military the South Pacific Special Forces and use your WA nation to defend innocent regions and promote the interests of the region abroad. If you want something fast-paced, strategic, and fun in NationStates and our region, the SPSF is for you! Telegram Minister of Defence Emodea for more information.

Note: You can block this nation in your notification settings if you wish to not receive messages like this.
