[font=sans-serif]According to Article 9, Section 2 of the Third Constitution of the Social Liberal Union and the Voting Reform and Fair Political Practices Act, an election for the office of Chancellor is now triggered.

I, Ramelia, am serving as Election Administrator, and I will dutifully and impartially execute the duties and powers of this position to the best of my ability.
Nominations are scheduled to last for seven days, from 8 May 2020 until 15 May 2020. Any Member State may nominate themself (if eligible) or other Member States (subject to their acceptance) to run for this office.
Voting is scheduled to last for seven days, beginning within two days after the close of nominations.
[/font]


[font=sans-serif]Eligible states are those who meet the following criteria:[/font]
  • Are Member States as defined by the Constitution (generally, have Average or above Civil Rights and Political Freedoms and either World Assembly membership or a valid waiver)

  • Have continuously been Member States for at least two months before 28 May 2020 (since at least 2 April)

  • Have not served two consecutive terms as Chancellor immediately prior to this election

  • Are not otherwise disqualified from holding office by the Court of Justice

[font=sans-serif]Duties of the Chancellor are mainly outlined in Article 9 of the Constitution.[/font]

[font=sans-serif]Candidates may optionally pledge to conduct their campaigns according to the Code of Fair Campaign Practices, statutorily established by the Voting Reform and Fair Political Practices Act. The Code reads as follows:

There are basic principles of decency, honesty, and fair play which every candidate for public office in the Social Liberal Union has a moral obligation to observe and uphold in order that, after vigorously contested but fairly conducted campaigns, our Member States may exercise their constitutional right to a free and unfettered choice, and that their will may be fully and clearly expressed on the issues.

THEREFORE:
[/font]

  1. I SHALL CONDUCT my campaign openly and publicly, discussing the issues as I see them, presenting my record and policies with sincerity and frankness, and criticizing without fear or favor the record and policies of my opponents that merit this criticism.

  2. I SHALL NOT USE OR PERMIT the use of character defamation, whispering campaigns, libel, slander, or scurrilous attacks on any candidate.

  3. I SHALL NOT USE OR PERMIT any appeal to negative prejudice based on a candidate’s actual or perceived race, religious creed, color, national origin, ancestry, physical disability, mental disability, medical condition, marital status, sexual orientation, sex, or gender identity.

  4. I SHALL NOT USE OR PERMIT any dishonest or unethical practice that tends to corrupt or undermine our system of free elections, or that hampers or prevents the full and free expression of the will of the voters including acts intended to hinder or prevent any eligible Member State voting.

  5. I SHALL IMMEDIATELY AND PUBLICLY REPUDIATE support deriving from any State or group that resorts, on behalf of my candidacy or in opposition to that of my opponent, to the methods and tactics that I condemn. I shall accept responsibility to take firm action against any subordinate who violates any provision of this code or the laws governing elections.

  6. I SHALL DISCLOSE any office, title, or position I hold in any and all other regions or organizations, except, if applicable, with regard to positions held in the course of my official duties with the Combined Union Security Agency, in the interest of full transparency and disclosure.

  7. I SHALL DEFEND AND UPHOLD the right of every qualified Social Liberal Union voter to full and equal participation in the electoral process.
[font=sans-serif]In compliance with provision 6 of the Code, candidates pledging to adhere to the Code MUST disclose all foreign positions publicly and under penalty of perjury within three days of pledging to follow the Code or by the end of nominations, whichever is earlier. This does not apply to Combined Union Security Agency-related positions, which candidates only ought inform the Election Administrator they possess (without reference to specific positions). More information can be found here.[/font]
