UEC Commission Election Oct/Nov 2013
With yet another election cycle upon us, it is time for the Union of European Conservatives to decide on its candidates for the Commission elections. After careful consideration, we have decided to continue with the format adopted last time, namely choose two candidates at this stage, with a view to increasing this to three should circumstances allow it.
I'm sure I don't have to repeat myself with regards to UEC candidates running without the blessing of the party at large. The UEC would disown any such candidates, and focus solely on those democratically chosen. That hasn't happened so far, so let's keep the good streak going, eh?
Now, I open the selection procedure, and invite any potential nominees to declare themselves now.
UEC Party President

A Short Biography of the Candidate:
Name of Candidate: Augustus Barrington
National Party Affiliation: Party of National Pride (PNP)
A Short Biography of the Candidate: Augustus Barrington was born on 22 November 1949, therefore he's currently 63 years of age. He enjoyed a wonderful education. As a matter of fact, he was in class together with William I for a couple of years. After his school period, he studied Forgein Economics at Lacerta University, a study which he hugely enjoyed. After this, he worked at a Tissue-production firm for 20 years as an economic advisor. He got fed up with it, though, and decided to go into politics. After a few years, he was MP for the Telum Monarchist Party, the party led by William Jameson, the future Emperor.
When the new government was formed, he became the deputy, secretary and advisor of Nicholas Benfield, the EU councillor for Inimicus at the time. He enjoyed his work! Yet fate had another card to play. Benfield was severely injured in a car accident, so Augustus replaced him as councillor.
Blair Von Schroeder, the current commissioner of Internal Affairs is going to host a discussion in the RCPOIR Headquarters about the possiblity of her running for the same office again. You shall know what the result is after you see has or has she not applied in the near future. If there is a scenario in which she doesn't decide to run, Red Croatia's Party of International Relations is going to stick to supporting one candidate from the Union of European Conservatives, and is going to make it's support super-official in the European Union.
Sincerely, Red Croatia's Party of International Relations.
"I would like to know when this UEC election is going to end, as the Commission Nominations end the 2nd of November. Therefore I ask this question to our Chairman"

I realise we may be cutting it a little bit fine, but we should be alright.
Name of Candidate: Peter Montfort

A Short Biography of the Candidate: Montfort co-founded and was Managing Director of Villiers, a leading chain of Angleteric department store, until he entered Parliament in the 2003 elections.

After a brief stint in broadcasting he was elected Internal Commissioner, replacing Mikaela Kligenberg, and in that office played a leading role in Davishire's integration into the regional mainstream, prioritised governing over legislating, and consulted on committee reform.

She is also known for her social life, separate from the world of politics. Being married to Anthonie Von Schroeder, one of the most successful entrepreneurs in Red Croatian history, she is a regular at cultural events both domestic and international. During her term as a Internal Affairs Commissioner, she has put herself out to every task that she could, and mostly co-operated with Karolinasz Jaedala from Os Corelia, her colleague and high-ranking members of the Union of European Conservatives.
