While the last couple of articles by the Department of Education have been dealing with informing the general populace about the Military Module, this article and the following ones will be dealing with the Political Module.
This article aims to inform the reader about the ingame mechanics related to being a Party President, as well as the metagame responsibility that Party Presidents in eUSA hold.
Running for Party President
To run for Party President, a candidate must be a member of the party that he wishes to run in. He should also candidate before the 15th of the month and have an experience level of atleast 16.
Most parties in eUSA run primaries on their forums to pick their Party Presidents, as this saves us from election day chaos and promotes more homogeneity in the parties. It is strongly recommended to withdraw from the ingame list if you have not won your party’s primary.
Party Presidents are incharge of several responsibilites ingame which include:
Edit the party details
Select who will run for Congress from party
Select who will represent party in the presidential elections
Party Presidents also deal with several metagame functions in this game, which seek to build up the community in their parties and the country in general including hosting trivia and poker nights for their party members, free giveaways of food and weapons for younglings in the party and various inter- and intra-party contests.
Fighting the PTO
This gives the Party Presidents a huge amount of power, particularly with the changes in Congressional elections. Recently, we saw the adverse effects of electing an enemy of the state as a Party President, when the American Military Party was taken over by a Serb.
With eUSA under a critical internal threat because of the huge amount of hostile foreigners with citizenship here, we as American citizens need to fully support our non PTO parties in every way possible. To avoid a possible division of votes on election day, it is best to withdraw candidacy incase you haven’t won your party’s primary before the 15th, so that the official candidate is able to win with ease and votes can be better spent to fight the PTO.
