Let’s play a game /mlpol/. We create a parliament and create board rules and make other things regarding the board.

>How does it work.
Step one, we need some political parties. For a party to exist you need to write up a party manifesto make a logo and chose a color. The manifesto must also state where you lie on political issues, this can be super broad or very specific, but the more people that understand what you stand for the easier it'll be to get anons to vote for your party. It also might be helpful to name/tripfag if you create a party. Here an example:
Party Party Not a real party as of now
Manifesto:
1. /mlpol/ is a fun board.
2. /mlpol/ is a nice board.
3. Being no fun will not be allowed. If you are not fun, you'll be BANNED!
4. If you’re a commie you’re not fun.
5. On Sunday you need to post horse pussy at least once or you’re not being fun.
Stance on issues is conservative center left. Distributism is good if effective. But destroying traditions is no fun!
Ect

As soon as we get two parties up and running the two parties will get one seat each seat and all parties that join will also get two seats. There is a 10-party cap so that we don't have a terribly large amount of anons making parties that are very similar.

After the parties are formed we can get to the meat of it which is anons voting. The votes here will work differently. Say which party you want to join and the party will be given an extra seat. Your vote can also be used to remove a seat from a political party. Everyone including party founders get three votes with their ID for max chaos. The game will continue till we reach 23, and as soon as its hit voting is over.

Once voting is over we can go full LARP and each party leader, or the person who made the party and wrote the manifesto, will chose anons who loyally voted for him to become members of parliament. Here we will draft legislation and make arbitrary rules based on the manifesto. All which will be non-binding unless, say the mods for whatever reason don't veto it when it leaves the lower house of parliament.

SO LET THE GAMES BEGIN!

Id be fine with this so long as there are no more major additions of seats after wards, and a hard cap set on the number of seats in Parlement.

Fair enough, how about six seats to boost the number to 29?

>>2991
Simple, with better planning, we won't need to make any odd exceptions to the rule. This time, you'll get the chance to campaign for your Spoon Party prior to the election, just as every other party will get the chance to campaign.

I think we should go by regular government majorities instead playing who's king for the week. It'll keep up competition and seed conflict instead of breeding complacency for the ruling party.
We could also expand the game much more and add a map with provinces.

That would require making a map. I like proportional rep a bit more it lets out extremes come out rather then single province popularity which gets confusing easily. It also doesn't require a map.

Each province can have more than one seat, if you want proportional representation.

Well, if we decide to have provinces, and decided that each province has proportional representation, we could have a census to determine which Anons are in which provinces. Then, when voting time comes around, each Anon's three votes can go towards any party or parties of their choosing. Then, we give the province's seats out according to the portion of votes each party got.

We don't even really need the provinces feature, and simply have proportional representation for the whole board, if we needed to simplify things. I just think the provinces would be interesting.

We could also go like Italy and take a bit of both. Still I'm against Federalism and spiting /mlpol/ up into a federalized system. A unitary state is much more effective for our small board.

Another bonus to the proportional representation system is that we can remove the limits on how many Anons can vote. We simply set up a start time and an end time for voting, and any vote after it ends is considered void. Then, we can tally up all the votes and divvy out the seats accordingly.

tfw that time is late in the night
As I suffer the same issue as the founder of the /mlk/ Party, I propose by proxy that party members can submit votes in advance that are counted once Parliament reconvenes.

As the founder and president of the Property and Freedom party I hereby name >>2759 (ID: 4f675) as the new party president, with myself remaining as vice-president of the PFP.

>>3003
If Parliament is to vote on a map, I vote YAY towards using the map of Equestria under the Diarchy's control, divided into provinces. We can worry about gerrymandering demarcation later.

Alright. I believe that this last election was a bit chaotic. I didn’t expect much order for the first one, but it definitely needs some work.

I was also thinking, because we have anons on at different times, could we perhaps make two meeting times and collect votes and proposals from each and compile them at each rotation?

The first election never is in any state or system.

As for Anons at different times, we could either do different meeting times or have one really long voting window, one that would let every time zone get through Sunday and make it to Monday before the votes are tallied.

I know, it's perplexing. Makes me fear potential infiltration in the future.

I was also wondering if, for the week between election cycles, we could have it so only the majority party, or coalition parties, could propose legislation for the parliament to vote on, just to give some incentive to the various parties.

That would keep the system from getting swamped with proposals. Although I’m for each group having a say, minority parties can just form a coalition to have their ideas heard. Excellent idea in my opinion.

I would be against forming permanent ties with coalitions. So I suppose a term limit might work. Seceding is what the south does best, so is their any legal binding that prevents members of coalitions from leaving due to falling out? If so, would anyone support removing that?
