Referendum on Membership of EDEN Alliance *CLOSED: PLEASE STOP VOTING!*

Day 1,840, 06:30 by John Gormley

*VOTE NOW CLOSED! PLEASE STOP VOTING*

I've been asked by President Winston Hope Smith to start this referendum.

I will keep the introductions to the minimum as the majority of people will already know what this is all about.
However, I have been asked to make one specific point very clear: that this is a consultative vote and it is still up to the President to decide whether or not to accept the results.

This referendum is on our membership of EDEN. You have 3 quite self-explanatory options:
STAY
LEAVE
ABSTAIN

A simple majority (50%+1) is needed to pass this referendum.
Please vote by PMing my account, and leaving a simple STAY, LEAVE or ABSTAIN will suffice.

This vote will remain open for 24 hours.

Pushing this EDEN v COT thing is only going to make life easy for TWO to roll over everyone.

Sure ive said it CoT is allied with TWO, MMPs are proof

Bhane
Bhane Day 1,840, 07:14

Join TWO

Non-aggression pact (no declarations of war, or daily orders against)...
Canada, USA, Croatia, Greece, and others of our oldest and best friends.

That would certainly shake things up. = P

I'd be nice to see Ireland in CoT, if only because you know Canada isn't going to do anything interesting and I'd MUCH rather fight for Ireland anyway.

Is voting to abstain the same as voting to stay? Or do we need >50% L|S+L?

Bhane
Bhane Day 1,840, 07:32

Voting to abstain is saying you are okay with either option. Personally, I abstained because I will always fight for eireland, no matter what it's alliance affiliation is.

The percentages should just compare stay vs leave, and the abstentions should only be there to count total participation in the poll.

Uljanov
Uljanov Day 1,840, 07:34

Ian E CoIeman good question..do we have to have 50%+1 of:
1. All of the Irelands population
2. All voters
3. Just Stay votes

?

Bhane
Bhane Day 1,840, 07:38

I think I answered that, Ulj.

The percentage should just count stay vs leave.
The abstains count toward total participation, but should carry no weight in the poll percent. Think of the abstentions as half a vote for stay and half a vote for leave. It's a 50/50 vote, so it will not change the outcome.

The same as any RL referendum

Abstains count towards turnout only exactly as Bhane sayes

50%+1 to pass? Wouldn't a clearer majority give a more authoritative signal?

So this isn't a referendum, this is an opinion poll for the CP.

Because alliance membership is a decision by Population, Dail and CP.

Winston Hope Smith

It is to inform the next CP on what the population wants as I set out here

http://www.erepublik.com/en/article/-whs-cp-eden-other-options-2157987/1/20

I suggest you get the candidates to say whether they will accept the result.

Yeah Brian,

TBH this should be a command to the next CP not to inform them but tell them what the public wants and its the CP's duty to carry out that desire. The people running for CP should know that and if they are unwilling to carry out the publics desire then withdraw from the race.

Its the same as when we voted to join EDEN, public voted and said to join so we did, it wasn't a consultation its a referendum not a survery.

Liam Tatlock

It'd be good before election day if all the candidates let us know whether they would be willing to abide by the result of this, whether it's stay or go.

Bloody hell, does Jeremy Beadle play this game?!

MUFC : Yep, I have, I'd just like to see all the candidates state their position.

I don't think other candidates are even serious tbh.

Also, after this thing called "survey" I'll have to organise a real referendum first day in office if I win. All this could have been already done now, we'll look like idi*ts with two "referendums" in three days.

MrConway
MrConway Day 1,840, 12:43

Tbh WHS should have done this at start of term, instead of doing it now and handing it over to the next CP.

Its just handing him a diplomatic mess.
