CP Army Election: Primary Debate

Blue2: After speaking with several of my consitituents, we have decided to hold a regular primary election to narrow the field as opposed to the secret ballot. Please be on the lookout for the to be released post on the matter. THIS DEBATE WILL BE CANCELLED AND RESCHEDULED ONCE THE FINAL FIVE HAVE BEEN DETERMINED AFTER THE PRIMARIES.

And so, with the nominees for election chosen through a secret polling of important figures from both in the former council and outside, the voting for the army elections will now commence.

The six nominees who will be voted on in the final election were chosen by a small group of people similar to the legends committee, in which none of the candidates were included. After the votes were in, they were tallied up and the Top 8 move on to a public voting. Some candidates unfortunately had to be excluded due to not meeting the requirements and being leaders of armies. With this, we narrowed it down to 8 in hopes the vote would not be too divded to have a clear winner.

PLEASE NOTE: Anyone who continually insults or disputes this system or the persons involved in it on a site or chat status is liable to be banned from voting. You have been warned.

Now that our nominees have been confirmed, it’s time to decide who you’ll vote for. CPAC will be hosting the election’s first debate, moderated by Bluesockwa2. The candidates involved will be Pie1350, Bluesockwa1, Shadowclub6, Ioioluk, Tanman626, Cowboysfan13, Antant98, and Flipper7706. The times for the debate are below. Please note that this is NOT A VOTING POST merely an announcement of the debate times.

  2. The nominees were chosen through a “secret polling.” Sounds totally democratic. If you didn’t detect sarcasm, you’re not very intelligent.

    • Also I find this to be obvious censorship, something the media is traditionally opposed to: “Anyone who continually insults or disputes this system or the persons involved in it on a site or chat status is liable to be banned from voting. You have been warned.” This system claims to be democratic, but one of the most crucial components of a democratic system is free speech, something which is clearly not supported here. In the real world, many governments censor the media to advance their own agendas. However, in CP warfare, we seem to have a new meaning of media censorship, in which the media censors the people in order to advance its own agenda. Frankly, it’s ironic and disgusting.

      • Says the man who crowned himself Supreme Chancellor of Small Armies.

        In addition, the secret ballot was made up of important figures and past members of the council, who we felt should have a say in the next generation to carry on their idea.

        • “Man” “Media”? You all are like 12-16 and still playing Club Penguin. Coming from the kid running a club penguin news site at the age of 14, I don’t believe any of us should be throwing insults at each other.

            • Surely you can choose who goes in your debate, but it doesn’t matter if we have 2 or 500 candidates for president in the election, surely? You’ve rightly chosen the front runners for a debate, but nobody is going to stop the lib-dems/independents even though it’s unlikely they’ll win. If we’re doing democracy, let’s do it properly.

              If you want to downsize the number of candidates, just require people to have a certain number of endorsements (with picture proof) or something?

    Secret polling shouldn’t be done. Should be just the public. Please, learn next time.

  16. Secret voting eh? That totally sound democratic, allowing a select group of people we don’t even know who they are essentially undermining an army wide voting…I would be okay if the people who selected were actually named so i know we aren’t getting any bias. I’m not saying there is bias at first glance, but I want to be sure

  20. Honestly, I didn’t expect you to allow people to vote (I mean come on everyone, they had over 100 comments and 80% were volunteering for the positions). It’s just that you can’t make it sound like some big anti-corruption reformed election if really you’re picking the people to be nominated.

    I guarantee if you explained that a secret group would pick the actual nominees out of the volunteers, you would have half as many complaints.

    But the way you did it, you have the butt-hurt losers like myself complaining, as well as the morally enraged like myself raging.
