We do have elections, ICly, but we don't do them OOC. It is assumed you win your seat. In the NSG Senate people would sometimes post about election rallies in Life Outside. In one iteration of the Senate we had RP elections and results based off that. However, if you lost, you still had a seat, it was just assumed you were elected by party list.

Ahh. Should we pad our house out to, say, 100 seats and then throw AI (decided by election results) into the seats?

I don't think there's a need for that. Would these AI vote?

Ik but the problem is that people will be able to pad numbers by inviting similarly-minded people. There's no point to your decisions and so you can just end up being a completely moral or immoral human being. You are unrestrained. It is effectively an oligarchy.

We should probably cut the amount of MPs to 50. No more than that. What we have is what we have

We shouldn't close off applications. Plenty of the people signed up won't be active, and we need all the activity we can get.

First, play nice in here

Second, if you haven't, please join our Discord. It's an easy way to talk with everyone and stay updated.

Third, please identify your character and party in your sig. It's been done in NSGS and worked really nice.

Last, it would also be pretty sweet if you advertised NS Parliament in your sig as well. It would help bring in fresh faces whenever you travel the forums.

Thank ya!

Black: People's Front for National Sovereignty


With a defection from PFNS, NPP has become the first single party to reach 10 members, though the Liberal Alliance, with 14 members, is still the largest current electoral group. Not pictured in the above diagram, a previously independent speaker has been elected, who can break ties. It was perhaps a non-important vote given how one sided it was, but note that a lot of members didn't show during the speaker election. Parties should make sure they keep track of their members and try to keep voting activity up, to make sure their numbers are real and not just on paper.

Currently, 26 MPs are needed for a majority. Some possible coalitions include:

Right-Leaning Coalition
Liberal Alliance-NPP (24) plus any of C-P, KP, PFNS, CPC-AAP

Left-Leaning Coalition
Liberal Alliance-CP-CPCAAP-R (25) plus either PLP or CSWUSH

The size of the NPP makes it a very strong contender in coalition talks, but it will still be difficult for them to build an agreeable coalition excluding the Liberal Alliance.

Rebels and Saints, regarding the incident in the Chamber, simply make sure you keep your own character's backstory within reason for an MP in a small Caribbean nation. You have not been officially warned because it is not a terrible violation. If you see anyone doing the same thing as you, feel free to let us know.

Regarding Rebels and Saints’ warning, my character is a rich oligarch and CEO of a company worth $650 million. Can you check my database entry to see if it isn’t too much?
