  • If you check https://www.pirateparty.org.uk/nominations/so-you-want-stand it looks like some people have submitted their nominations and not posted threads on this site, so you'll need to add those in too.

    Wesley Hall - Campaigns Officer (looks like there isn't a seconder)
    Harley Faggetter - Governor
  • Can I have a spelling correction please? It's Davies, not Davis for me. Many thanks.
  • What happens in the event of there being no nominations for party secretary? (Sorry if this is covered obviously within the constitution - I'll be more on the ball in time.)
  • From the constitution, 9.4: "Nominations will remain open indefinitely if no nominations are received. Should a nomination occur after this period nominations must remain open for a minimum of 14 days from the date of a nomination being made."

    If this happens, I'll set up a separate election with an indefinite nomination period for that post, and run the others together.

    Why, were you thinking of standing as secretary? (Go on! ;))

  • Thanks. Straight to the point :-) I (very) briefly considered standing for it about an hour ago but TBH I really don't anticipate having quite enough time available to do justice to the role. Sorry!
  • To update ktetch's post above:

    There is another candidate for Campaigns Officer:

    Candidate: Wesley Hall
    Seconded by Alexandra Baron
    Thread - https://community.pirateparty.org.uk/discussion/207/campaigns-manager-nomination-wesley-hall-i-hope-i-haven-t-left-it-too-late

    For the Governors, Trevor Keith Johnson has been seconded by Maria Aretoulaki. There are also another two candidates:

    11. Candidate: Harley Faggetter
    Seconded by: Chris Monteiro
    Thread - none at present

    12. Candidate: Adrian Farrel
    Seconded by: Daniel King
    Thread - https://community.pirateparty.org.uk/discussion/203/board-nomination-adrian-farrel

    No nominations were received for the position of Secretary, so that has been spun out into its own election with an indefinite nomination period until a nomination is received, following the constitution.

    We'll now be checking whether all candidates and seconders are members in good standing.
