127 – Election process

Reading Time: < 1 minute

How are members elected to different positions?

Initially in a small community positions will be given to those most suited to the role and with the most experience. Ultimately a list of advocates amongst the top 10 in each department will be found and for each dept a random 3 will be selected to be the voting representatives for each department who will then vote for their preferred official.

The random element that regularly occurs in committees an selection processes exists for 2 reasons:

  1. To try keep the system free of corruption and loaded committees.
  2. The elected position will undoubtedly remove the selected individual from their research for a number of years, such a situation should be considered a necessary chore and not a privilege one strives towards.
