Today's New Law

purplecthulhu is now Minion i/c Canada. Still many vacancies left.

While not allowing elections for the post of supreme dictator, they will still be permitted for lesser positions of authority. So here is a new electoral law.

In all elections, "None of the above" shall be a candidate. If "none of the above" wins the election, none of the defeated candidates, or any political parties on whose behalf they may have been officially standing, may be a candidate in the repeat election, or any other election for the same position within the next five years.

(It should go without saying that elections for a single office should be held using uniform standards and voting procedures, that all votes should produce a paper record that can be verified by the voter before casting and can be recounted as necessary, and that in the event of any doubt, all votes should be recounted as often as it takes to produce a final tally which is agreed by all parties. Sadly, it appears necessary for me to add these conditions to the new legislation.)
