A New Leader



  • Elections to replace the outgoing General Secretary of Brecon's Socialist Party are being held. As the Socialist Party is Brecon's governing party the new General Secretary will also be Brecon's Prime Minister. Three cabinet ministers are in the running and you are invited to vote for your preferred candidate.

    Feel free to ask questions of the candidates, although if you are going to ask a question try to post in the first few days. Post below to vote; if you wish to change your vote edit it before the deadline. Voting will end on April 1, 2011. Once voting is finished I will write up a more detailed character biography for the new leader.

  • RUNOFF ELECTION!

    With Otto Brunfels and Conrad Gesner tied following the regular voting period a run-off election, with Sharon den Adel dropped from the list, is to be held. If you have already voted there is no need to vote for your preferred candidate again. If you have not voted, now is your chance. Voting closes at the end of April 7, 2011.

    (OOC: If there is still a tie I will flip a coin, Brunfels is heads)

    Edit:
    Three polar bears (tails)
    Conrad Gesner wins!
