...3.3- The Magisterium shall then vote for a period of 72 hours and the candidate receiving the most votes shall be elected as Provost.
...3.4- The Provost shall name a Magister as Deputy Provost, who shall assume the Provost's duties temporarily in the case the Provost is absent for more than 48 hours for any reason.
Please nominate someone below. Any name that is italicized means they have been nominated, any name that is underlined means that they have been nominated and accepted nomination (self-nominations count), any name that is struck out means that they have been nominated and declined.

Eligible nominees:
  • Alix

  • The Atlae Isles
  • Bachtendekuppen

You may have noticed that my name is struck out, and that is because I am not running for a second term as Provost at this time. Good luck to all the candidates!

I nominate Junkyard America.
Junkyard America is not a magister, and therefore he can not be nominated for Provost. Also, only magisters can nominate people.

Anyway, I accept my nomination.

Oh, sorry. Delete this post and the one I also made form the above. I saw this over the shout box and directly tried to nominate him.

I need to learn how to read this stuff better. :laugh:

What stripe?
I believe this is the first time I have seen the Delegate nominate candidates for Provost. It does not appear to be prohibited by the Concordat or the standing orders, but it is unusual. The Concordat is clear that the Magisters elect the Provost, but there is no requirement for the nomination to come from a Magister. It might be good to reflect on that. The usual separation of powers argument would suggest that this should be avoided.

I may be reading this wrong, but I see Section III of the Standing Orders slightly differently.

Code:
 
...3.1- The Magisterium shall immediately act to appoint a Provost from among its members;
Such implies that the Provost elections (and therefore Provost nominations) will take place by Magisters exclusively, and may not be participated in by outside individuals.

Concordat, Article B
Section 3
Section 3) Magisters will elect among themselves a Provost every three months, outlined in the Standing Orders.

The Concordat's phrasing ("among themselves"), together with the phrasing of the Standing Orders ("The Magisterium.. shall act"), seems to exclude anyone who is not a Magister from this process.

I think nominations made by non-Magisters, Delegate or not, can not be valid. It would make no sense either to allow everyone and anyone to directly influence an internal matter of the Magisterium. This could diminish it's independence as the legislative power.
