    These are the traditional duties and powers of all councilmembers:

    Post polls and discussions to determine citizen desires for departmental policies, plans and agendas.
    Cast a tie-breaking vote in the polls determining their departmental policies, plans and agendas.
    Formulate departmental policies, plans and agendas based on citizen feedback.
    Formulate departmental policies, plans and agendas of their own in the absence of citizen feedback (forum outage, low participation, etc).
    Convey these policies, plans and agendas to the President for play in the game.
    Call Legislative and Override Council Votes.
    Vote in Council Votes of all types.

    These are the duties of the Minister of Defence:

    Organize decisions on troop movements.
    Organize decisions on defensive plans.
    Organize decisions on offensive plans.
    Organize decisions on troop upgrades and terminations.
    Call a Mobilization Council Vote to determine if the economy should be mobilized.
    When the economy is mobilized for war, becomes the defacto President, superceding the President in the Chain of Command.
    Can supercede a provincial build queue with military units or improvements during time of invasion.

    Please Accept or Decline any nominations you receive.

    Yours,
    The Election Office

    Why would you want that, CG? It takes all the fun out of the election.

    Besides, Peri hasn't even accepted yet. ;)

    Thanks for the nomination. I shall give it serious thought. However I would like to encourage people who have not held public office before to stand for election.

    Donovan Zoi: thank you very much for this nomination, but I'm afraid I must reject.

    My studies are taking a heavy toll upon my spare time :-(

    So I decline, though I am honoured!

    I have decided to withdraw from this election and give my full support to Sarevok. He is a new player and has 2 artices on warfare published at CFC.
    There is no question that CT would be an excellent Minister of Defence however I believe that Sarevok would bring fresh blood to the game and a new approach.
    I urge all my fellow citizens to vote for Sarevok.

    Vote Sarevok

    It is unfortunate that one such as you has dropped out of the race for this office. I know you have your reasons for doing so. I thank you for your support and your statement. I hope indeed I can help to make the demogame more exciting and fun.

    - Sarevok

    I will throw my support behind Sarevok. It's time to see a new Great Leader rise from the ranks in our Military Department. Charge, Sarevok! Lead us up that hill and we shall follow!
