These are the powers and traditional duties of the Executive branch:

The Leader of the Executive Branch is the President.
The Deputy of the Presidency is the Vice President.
The Vice President assumes all powers and responsibilities of the Presidency during the absence of the President.
May initiate Administrative, Legislative, Mobilization and Spot Council Votes.
Casts a tie-breaking vote in Council Votes.
Organizes decisions on what to do with Great Leaders.
Organizes worker activities.
Has veto power over Legislative Council Votes (votes on Standards).
Organizes policy, plans and agendas for departments when these have not been set by a department.
Organizes policy, plans and agendas for items and activities that have not been defined as a task of an individual department or leader.

The President is also at the top of the Chain of Command, and so will be responsible for playing the game whenever available.

Please Accept or Decline any nominations you receive.

Yours,
The Election Office

I've not discussed this with him, so this may just be smoke, but ...

I'd like to nominate Dave Shack for President. His continued foresight and evident knowledge would make him an excellent President.

I would like to nominate Zarn for possition of VP :)

Zarn
Jul 24, 2003, 02:30 PM
I'll accept for the position of VP. I don't desire presidency but vice presidency.

Octavian X
Jul 24, 2003, 03:28 PM
I'll second DaveShack's nomination. I will also nominate Falcon02, eyrei, Donavon Zoi, Ekelektikos, Cyc, and ravensfire.

Somebody there had better accept. I don't want to have to come out of retirement. ;)

The Mother of All Nominations!

Good grief Oct - Columbia is starting to get to you, isn't it? Isn't it?!?! All those highways, coming together in a mass of concrete and asphalt in the middle of rural Missouri!

<smack!>

Sorry, carried away there. Thanks, but I'll decline this one. Maybe in a few months ... Maybe.

Contrary to popular opinion and esoteric evidence, living in Columbia has not yet addled my brains. I do think you'd do an excellent job, ravensfire.

I have heard from Zarn that he is only running for the Vice Presidential Possition.

But I thought the VP was runner up in Presidential elections...:hmm: Let me check the constitution ;)

Edit- Nothing in the constitution prohibiting it.

Thank you, Octavian X, but I must decline. After all the crap I saw donsig take while he brought our nation to a prosperous standing in the world, I'm no longer interested in the Presidency.

But I will nominate donsig again. He might be a glutton for punishment. :D

No, the VP is considered the deputy of the President, the one who places second in the Presidential elections. Therefore, Zarn is running for President at the moment.

gee oct, the only person you havent nominated was me lol

donsig

I nominate Rik Meleet.

I would like to thank Cyc for the nomination but I will Decline it.

DaveShack

Being nominated for President is a happy surprise and at the same time puts me in a quandry. I can only run TC's between 10pm and 1am MST (PDT). If I ran and won with CG second, that would probably leave CG with 1/2 the turnchats and none of the glory. :rolleyes:

Due to other, even greater RL considerations, I must decline.

I'm on holiday so I am in a good mood. I accept the nomination. :eek: (I'll regret it). Do remember that if I'm elected play will hold until Mid-August.

And I nominate Fionn.

Want to know where Athlone is ?
Athlone, County West-Meath (http://www.expedia.com/pub/agent.dll?qscr=mrdt&ID=3XNsF.&CenP=53.425129,-7.950879&Lang=WLD0409&Alti=500&Size=656,532&Offs=0,0&MapS=0&Pins=|8aa|)

Hi Rik,

Glad you're having a good time!

Given an announced absense, if you are elected President, the VP would become the DP and play until your return... ;)

Cyc

I will second Rik Meleet.

BTW, nice map. You must be fishing quite a bit. :D

eyrei

I will have to decline this nomination. I had my week as President, and that is enough for me. ;)

I would third both CG and RM, but seeing as RM is not available to accept any other nominations, I will only third CG.

Donovan Zoi
Jul 26, 2003, 04:22 PM
Thanks for the nom, Octavian. Unfortunately I too must decline.

Zarn
Jul 26, 2003, 05:41 PM
I'm going to drop from this race, because I feel I would do more harm than good in the election.

FionnMcCumhall
Jul 27, 2003, 02:17 AM
ill run for the heck of it, Count me in

Cyc
Jul 27, 2003, 06:41 AM
I'll second Fionn.

Eklektikos
Jul 28, 2003, 05:09 AM
Tempted though I am to accept Octavian's nomination, common sense and awareness of my erratic availability force me to decline. Hopefully I'll be able to respond otherwise at some point in the future, however ;)
