MSSCF Committee Election 2011/12 – Info pack
Procedures for Candidates
Candidates will have a Speech Time, an Individual Q&A slot, and a Group Q&A session.
Candidates running for the position of PRESIDENT will be given 5 Minutes per candidate for their speech time, 5 Minutes for their Individual Q&A Session, and 7 Minutes for Group Q&A Session.
Candidates for All Other Position will have 3 Minutes for their Speech, 3 Minutes of Individual Q&A time, and 5 Minutes of Group Q&A.
ONE Time Extension per Position for Group Q&A can be motioned for by the members. If the motion passes, the time for Group Q&A will be extended for a further 3 Minutes. A simple majority is required for the motion to pass.
Those who are interested in running for the election but missed the dateline may turn up on that day itself. We will reopen the nomination prior to the starting of the election. So long as there is one member who nominates you and another who seconds the nomination, you are eligible to run in the election.
SPEECH TIME can be used to explain and elaborate on your manifesto, convince why people should vote for you, and tell them why you are better than your opponent.
INDIVIDUAL Q&A TIME is where the members may ridicule your manifesto and question the arguments put forward by you during speech time. Be well prepared to back up what you said.
GROUP Q&A TIME brings all candidates for the same position together and question them at the same time. Members can compare answers given by each candidate for the same question and determine which answer is to their liking. (Can be extended once per Position. The time extension is 3 minutes.)
Decorum for Members
Only REGISTERED MEMBERS of MSSCF will be allowed into the AGM.
Please remain silent when the candidates are talking. You are only allowed to ask questions during the Individual Q&A time and Group Q&A time. NEVER interrupt the candidates during their Speech. It is just plain rude and disrespectful to them.
Please silent your Mobile Phone as you enter the venue.
All members can cast ONE vote per Position. If you think none of the candidates are suitable for the position they are running for, you may choose to vote for Reopen Nomination (RON). Reopening Nomination means you can reselect candidates for the position.
Your choice of a new candidate is limited to those who are present in the AGM, and subject to another member seconding the nomination of the new candidate. The new candidate must accept or reject the nomination on the spot.
For those of you who wish to run for an uncontested position, or think that you can outperform the current candidate on the list, you may prepare your own manifesto for the position and bring it along that day. Do take note that if you want to run for a contested position on that day, a majority of the members must vote for RON for that specific position, and you must have one member nominating you and one other member who seconds the nomination.
You can request to extend the time for Group Q&A. Each Position will be allowed one Time Extension, subject to a simple majority vote by the members. The request can be made at the end of the Group Q&A session.
Now then, without further ado, we present you the list of the Committee Candidates!
