Please read the other threads to be as informed as possible concerning the consequences of this vote. If you have not and will not, please abstain.

I will host a citizen's poll for the cabinet vote on accepting Grey Fox's resignation for this term. The related discussion is hosted here:
Presidential Election Needed (http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=22871)

The cabinet vote is hosted here:
Cabinet Vote to accept or decline Grey Fox's resignation (http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=22894)

Note, there has not been allocated the normal time for discussion, nor will this poll be open longer than necessary. A swift decision is required. I am unclear as to when the cabinet vote will close, but will try to vote there as soon as possible.

is it up to us to not accept it? if he resigns, it is HIS will. we can do nothing about it!
therefor i abstained because this poll makes no sense.

We're taking this in the traditional form where GreyFox offered his resignation. It is up to the employer whether to accept or decline a resignation.

Even in the case of employees accepting a resignation is a mere formality. I currently run a business that employees 150 people, and I can tell you that the laughter that would ensure from me saying "no" to a resignation would be quite loud, and not legally defensible.

I understand the logic behind this move. I think the better answer would be to ask Grey Fox to withdraw his resignation and not run for election in term 3.

or maybe start nominations IMMEDIATELY (for term3) and come to an election for term3 as soon as possible. we could then start term3 1 week early, so it would be 1 week longer than the others.

In the real world it's a formality but remember that it's not even 900 AD in Phoenatica.

Everyone vote no then Grey Fox might see that we need him to be president(Even through he was a bad one :) and he might stay!

Has anyone asked Grey Fox to rescind his resignation?

Why the debate? If real life takes precedence, then you should resign.
