Member access to the website acts as membership card.
In consideration of the party’s fundamental values and its transparency policy, the website will be accessible to the public by simple follower status of the website.
The follower status does not allow voting rights or the possibility to bring foward propositions.
The member who publishes a comment or brings forth a proposition is fully responsible for his words. They do not bind the party or its other members.
Elective assemblies are held through the party’s website. All the members votes, except for candidate nomination assemblies where vote is limited to members of the concerned electoral divison.
While the leader and the executive may suggest a voting option, the vote is always open.
Members will receive email notice when vote his being held and for how long.
The default vote duration is 7 days, but the national executive can convene otherwise if circumstances warrant it.
As the assembly is virtual, the communications director acts a assembly president and may appoint moderators as needed. He establishes the modalities of it.
If a physical assembly is exceptionnaly required, the national executive appoints an assembly president which will be in charge of establishing the modalities of it, under condition of respecting the values of democracy, freedom and transparency of the party.
Barring contrary measure, simple majority wins. Quorum is not necessary, but the leader or the national executive can refuse a result that doesn’t have a quorum of 50% of the members.
General assembly (Congress) follows the same rules as elective assemblies and are held once a year for the period and duration determined both by the national executive.
On it we elect the national executive and case pending, vote on member propositions, including ratification or modifications to the constitutive documents (Constitution and regulations).
The leader acts as assembly president, or if not possible his delegate.
If a leadership bid takes place, president of the executive act as president of this elective assembly, or if not possible a president is elected from the members proposed and seconded by voting members.
Assembly president establishes modalities of the assembly and may appoint moderators if needed.
Propositions approved no later than 30 days before the beginning of the general assembly are submitted for voting during the general assembly.
Exceptionnaly, national executive can submit a proposition to vote outside the general assembly.
The various transition Commissions created by the national executive must be held through the party’s website and videoconferencing service.
While they may still hold physical meetings on a voluntary basis, they will do so at the commissionners own costs and will still have to be reported in the website private section set to that end. The final and approved reports of these commissions are however public themselves.
Internal management of the Commissions will be run by the commissioners, but will remain subject to supervision by the national executive.
A candidate, in addition of the requirements set forth in the party’s Constitution, must have been a member for a minimum of 30 days.
Somone aspiring to an elective office inside the party, whatever it is, must meet the same requirements than a candidate, includind those set forth in the party’s Constitution.
Virtual vote excludes the possibility of a recount, except if a technical problem is the cause. In such a case, a new vote will be required if the technical problem has or may have had a decisive impact.
An aspiring officer or candidate cannot act as assembly president for the one where he is presenting himself.
For delay calculation, the first day doesn’t count, but the last one does. If the last day is a holiday, the delay ends the following business day.
When a conflict on the website requires moderator intervention, the member at fault may require revision by the communications director and his decision will be final.
The latter may submit a case of sufficient gravity to the executive committee and must do so in a case of heinous or crime inciting discourse. This does not predjudice his right and the right of the moderator to take immediate measures.
The present regulations can be modified or replaced by simple proposition accepted following the modalities established in section 11.
Said modification or replacement can be partial if the whole remains coherent and complete.
