History

Executive Order into a Special By-election

On 9 April 2019, President Cooper Norfolk signed an executive order based on popular demand by citizens. This executive order was very popular with the newer citizens and government members of the Democratic Republic of Seybold. The executive order that was recently signed by President Cooper Norfolk was related to a Special By-election of the Democratic Republic of Seybold. President Cooper Norfolk signed the executive order to have a special by-election because of the citizens of the Democratic Republic of Seybold that were demanding an earlier election. The election that has been rescheduled is the Lower Elections of the Democratic Republic of Seybold, which is where citizens elect a Governor, Lawmaker’s Council Representative, National Assembly Representative, Mayor, and City Council Representative depending on their residence. These Elections were supposed to occur around 5 August 2019, but they were moved to this April so the Democratic Republic of Seybold could survive longer with the Sitzungssaal filled and with other positions filled. This would help the Democratic Republic of Seybold a lot, as more laws could be passed and there would be more political diversity. The Executive order was signed at 05:55 GMT-5 in New Springfield, the Federal District of New Springfield by President Cooper Norfolk. The executive order says quote, ” One. This Executive Order will allow the Seyboldish Lower Elections to be moved from beginning on 5 August 2019 to beginning on 9 April 2019. Two. The Seybold Department of Elections will be in charge of making sure that all candidates for every position have fulfilled the requirements to run and to overall keep a count of who is running for each office. Three. The offices that citizens of the Democratic Republic of Seybold can run for is Governor or National Assembly Representative of their subdivision, Lawmaker’s Council Representative and City Council Seat of their District, or Mayor of their City. Four. All citizens of the Democratic Republic of Seybold have the right to run for multiple positions at once. Five. Citizens of the Democratic Republic of Seybold can start to announce their candidacy for those positions on 9 April 2019 up until 12 Friday 2019, which can be called off early if all of the candidates have been announced, the primaries between political parties in all races, if any, will take place on 14 April 2019 with a debate for all of them and then voting will end on 15 April 2019, the main elections will occur on 16 April 2019 with voting that lasts until 18 April 2019, and if there is a need for another runoff election in any positions, they will occur on 20 April 2019 and the voting will end until 22 April 2019. Six. The qualifications for running in a position is announcing your candidacy to the Seybold Department of Elections and publicly announcing your candidacy. ” Below that, there was the signature of President Cooper Norfolk, as there always is in an executive order. The executive order officially declared the Special by-election and allowed candidates to officially announce that they are running. The executive order also specified that any citizen of the Democratic Republic of Seybold can run for multiple offices. The reason that this is currently legal is that the Democratic Republic of Seybold does not currently have enough citizens to fill every position individually.
