Commission Nominations, October 2016


  • Admin

    ((OOC: So I've been informed that @Icholasen is taking a break from the RP and thus effectively resigning as Premier. In addition to @Inquista and @Inimicus taking a break and thus choosing not to pursue their nominations, this leaves us without a Commission. Since this Commission never actually fully took office, I'm going to count this Commission coming as the actual Commission XXII.))

    It's time once again start the nomination process for the next commission. Only candidates interested in the role of Premier Commissioner should fill out the form below. The candidate for Premier Commissioner should also provide the required information for their Internal and Foreign Affairs candidates.

    As is traditional, I shall quote the words of our Returning Officer back in January 2011, who opened these nominations thus:

    "These elections are supposed to give our member-states fair representation in this region - if candidates cannot take it upon themselves to be active, then I in particular, question their ability and willingness to take part in a body who must be active, accountable and able. I do not wish to threaten nor scare, but I want, for once, our European Commission to consist of Commissioners who are active and who play a part in the region both on and off this forum."

    Interested premiership candidate should fill out all information below for themselves and their running mates:
