Regional Poll • Should There be Term Limits for Elected Positions?

The Queendom of The People of Starlight wrote:Proponents of term limits for elected positions believe that they are necessary to bring new political ideas to the table. They may also realize that term limits can prevent someone from becoming too powerful. However, opponents of term limits recognize that if a politician is doing a good job, they deserve to hold a position. This begs the question: should there be term limits for elected positions?

I have not been notified of anything in the government, no discord stuff and no telegram of where the debates are held.

I love how the nation Statnic created for everyone to control instantly turned into a father knows best state.

I think I might have done that...

The elections are conducted wholly on the NS site itself; candidates create a campaign dispatch and send the link to the MoDA, who would've already set the deadlines for the election; you send in your votes by TGing the MoDA.

Yeah... that’s close enough to my name.

The debates would be held in the Discord server as during my terms in the AoN everything was brought before the round table before it went to the Council.

I believe he was talking about when the AoN and the Council debate on new laws and amendments to our constitution, I could be wrong but I don't think I am this time.

Again, not until July. We're not America. We don't annoy people with campaigning until the time is right.

DefNotMomoPuppet have you been writing the issues again? “Well, someone had to do it!” yelps self-appointed head of one of the border town’s lynch mobs, Edward Salem. “That lady was commitin’ witcheries left and right, turned my nephew into a newt she did! I mean... he got better, but that’s besides the point! The gov’ment needs to let us protect ourselves and rid our peace lovin’ towns of these foul she-devils!”

Ah, in that case... the debates are supposed to be on #round_table, and I believe the channel is viewable by all CK people on the server. However, there simply have not been any debates yet, because the AoN at least does not have any amendments to consider or motions to pass.

Hi all! It was time for an update yesterday, so here's one today. Happy Easter!

Forest April Update

.

Government of Forest

Founder: Errinundera
WA Delegate: Ransium
Forest Keeper: Turbeaux
Deputy Forest Keeper: Lord Dominator
Foreign Affairs Minister: Ruinenlust
Deputy Foreign Affairs Minister: Verdant Haven
Voice of Forest: Uan aa Boa
Face of Forest: Mozworld
Roleplay Mentor: Caracasus
Forum and Discord Sower: Mount Seymour
Head Cartographer: Areulder

Foreword

First off, Happy Easter to all of the lovely people playing Nationstates. Whether you’re religious or not, I think we can all agree that this is a great time of the year (until someone inevitably eats too many chocolate eggs and gets sick). Also, we made it to a second update! That means we now have a tradition!

Government

As per the Forest Constitution, from March to April, we had an election season! That means we have a lot of changes to the government.

The election process started on the 16th of March, and we only had two candidates come forward: Turbeaux and Chan Island. Both ran stellar campaigns, Turbeaux promising to increase non-WA nation involvement in government (dispatch linked at bottom), and Chan Island offering tours of NSG. Turbeaux won, with a 27-8 lead on April 2, however I believe that Chan Island would have had a better chance if it was tours of anywhere except NSG. Nonetheless, congratulations to Turbeaux on a well-deserved win!

When Turbeaux came into government, they brought a lot of changes with them. Firstly, we had Ruinenlust (Foreign Affairs Minister), Mount Seymour (Forum and Discord sower), Caracasus (Roleplay Mentor), and Areulder (Head Cartographer) returning to their positions. Welcome back all! Mozworld was also reappointed, but their role was changed from “WFE Editor” to “Face of Forest”, and they are now also partially responsible for making all future updates look good. After Chan Island turned the position down, Lord Dominator became the Deputy Forest Keeper, and Verdant Haven became the Deputy Foreign Minister. On top of all that, Uan aa Boa replaced Yours Truly as Voice of Forest (more on that at the end), and Blon Gre hasn’t been reappointed to Statistics Officer, likely agreeing to do their work without a shiny badge. Very commendable of you, Blon Gre. Thank you for your service!

And that about sums up our election season. Congrats once again to Turbeaux, and to all the ministers, old and new. I look forward to seeing what the next six months bring!

Embassies

In the past few months, we’ve had few changes when it comes to embassies, probably due to election season taking up so much of everyone’s time. But, we did have an embassy open with Pacifica on February the 20th, following a 13-7 vote. I’m very excited about our future with them, seeing as they are such a vibrant and active region! We also opened embassies with Osiris on April the 17th, following a 26-18 vote in favor, and despite them being a sinker, I can be sure a lively and upbeat partnership will result in this embassy.

On a sadder tone, we also had an embassy closure with The LCRUA, due to an incident on discord, and some disagreements stemming from it. I can’t recap it here in an unbiased way, nor a way that wouldn’t fill my telegrams with hate, so I’ll leave it at that.

Culture

Well, while our regular Forest contest season ended, we still had a very exciting event in junction with The Rejected Realms! Dead I Jack and Turbeaux put on a story-writing event, Journey Through the Woods! It was a great time, and I got to take part in some story writing, something I don’t get to do often. More information can be found in the dispatch below.

page=dispatch/id=1168355

Conclusion

Right, to end this update, I’d like to address one of the changes in government noted above. I am no longer the Voice of Forest, and this will be the last dispatch I write (unless I get reappointed later, of course). I would like to make clear that this was because I stepped down, due to upcoming personal commitments that will render me without internet for a few months. I enjoyed every second of serving on the government of Forest, and I hope I may get the opportunity to do so again in the future. There are no hard feelings between me and anyone on the Forest government, and I am very excited to pass the baton off to Uan aa Boa, seeing as they basically made these updates a thing in the first place. Speaking of which, Uan aa Boa sent me the following as their introduction:

“I'm the previous Forest Keeper but I first started doing updates in the summer of 2016 when it was part of the role of Forest Affairs minister. I'd like to see updates that look professional but for that I'm definitely going to have to draw on the design and IT skills of other people in Forest. Since we don't have much going on in the way of regional politics I'd like to showcase some of the good stuff we do produce by including creative writing, short essays or other interesting content from some of the very talented people we have in the region.”

Very noble goals, Uan aa Boa, and I wish you luck.

Well, that’s all for this update. If you have any concerns about this update, TG me and I’ll get back to you, and any suggestions should be sent to Uan aa Boa. Thank you to all the people of Forest for letting me serve the community in this way, and to all of the people who make Nationstates such a great place!

Cheers,
-Canaltia
