      Dear GLCP,

      By law in the GLK, no political parties are, as yet, recognized.
      They do not have standing or a charter and are not recognized
      *officially*. In this election we are voting for individuals, not for
      parties.

        Kai,

        we do not HAVE any laws which prohibit political partys. Therefore
        every citizen or group of citizens can initiate and form any kind of
        party or association, which he/she desires to. What is not forbidden,
        does not require any "recognition".

        Where you have right completely is, that at the moment obviously non
        of the partys have made some legal requests to the High Court in order
        to REGISTER (not "recognize" or "allow") them and publish an according
        notice in the GAYZETTE. As stated, each candidate is going
        individualy on the ballot, but can refere to the party he/she might
        belong to.

        Kind Regards,

        Vicky

          We just switched everything over to wireless (got tired of tripping over
          cables) and while I con connect to the internet, nobody from the internet
          can connect to me. We are working as quickly as possible to rectify the
          problem.

          I'll send a message out as soon as everything is working again.

            Let's see if I can make this clear once and for all, since there seems to be much confusion on the question of political parties.
             
            Political parties are perfectly legal, just like Chess clubs, knitting circles and any other voluntary grouping of people you can think of.
             
            Political parties are not taken into account in the Election Ordinance that will govern the general election on Februrary 28th. Voters will be given a choice of names of individual candidates to vote for. Those candidates will have nominated themselves by indicating their wish to do so, and submiting a Policy Paper for the High Court to publish-- so that voters know where those individual candidates stand.
             
            Voters will not have the option to simply vote for a party; no parties will be listed on the ballot, just candidates' names.
             
            That's it. Simple. Easy. The Ordinance is as straight-forward as we could make it.

                  You are exactly right.

                  There are nine positions to be filled in the Assembly. The ballot
                  will present the voters with a list of people who wish to fill those
                  positions, and each voter will pick which nine they approve of. The
                  nine candidates with the highest number of votes will be members of
                  the Assembly.

                      It should be noted, however, that if appointed to the Assembly in that way, a member of the Privy Council would resign from the Privy Council-- not hold two positions at once.
