1. Which House Bills do you plan to pass and/or repeal? Why?

None currently, seeking to adjust back to the House first.

2. In what ways should the Constitution be amended, if at all? Explain how the changes would improve the current system of governance.

Not at all, for same reason as the previous question.

3. What qualifies you to serve in the House? What makes this qualifying?

Several previous terms, qualifying for obvious reasons.

4. Do you think any changes should be made to existing House Procedures? If so, what changes should be made and why?

Not currently, the system seems fine for now.

5. If elected, do you plan on running for Speaker? If so, what makes you a good candidate for this position and if not, who do you think would be a better candidate?

Not currently, highly depends on who else runs.

6. How do you plan to ensure the voices of your constituents are heard while in office?

I offer an open door; they can contact me with their opinions any time.

7. How do you feel about the influence parties have on the House and electoral process, and should it be more or less? Explain your answer fully.

Whilst parties do influence the house in terms of voting as generally parties vote the same way, people will always band together in some way, shape or form, and trying to change that is folly.

8. The House of Representatives is the sole legal body with the ability to remove a Prime Minister from office. Under what circumstances would you support the removal of one and what constitutes 'going too far'? Cite specific legal passages if necessary and ensure that your answer is sufficiently detailed

If the PM conducts any criminal act, or an act that is not criminal, but severely damages the reputation of the Union as a whole, they should be removed.

Required: Questions for all Prime Minister Candidates

1. What makes you the best candidate for Prime Minister? What do you bring to the office which your opponent does not and why do you think you are better positioned to succeed in whatever you undertake?

Whilst I can't really speak on what my opponent would bring to the office, I am sure that I will bring the experience of a leader of a state within the Union, and thus the understanding of non-capital regions of our union, and the drive to support the union as a whole that such a position has instilled in me, as well as the drive (and nagging ability!) to ensure that the ministries do well, and I am confident that I can support them to this end.

2. How do you plan to address the current recruitment issues facing not just the capital but the Union as a whole, what steps will you take and how will this be brought about?

Working on encouraging recruitment drives for recruiters, perhaps finding a way to reward recruiters for their efforts as it is quite a tedious task.

3. Who would you appoint to your ideal Cabinet (ex-members, people who would be ineligible, and people not necessarily willing to serve can be included)? Why would you choose these people and what specific things would they bring to each office that you consider being most important?

Battadia has done a fantastic job in Media, so I would likely keep them in charge there.
Lashnakia should take on Foreign Affairs, as they are quite willing to do the job, and have the ability to conduct FA successfully.
Pikachurin has always done a good job in Culture, so I will definitely keep them on for that role if they are willing.
Same goes for Bertilistan on Internal Affairs.
I would appoint Salibaic as my Deputy PM, as I recognise that this would be my first time as PM, and would like to have their wealth of knowledge and experience of the role to assist me.

4. If elected, how do you plan (if at all) to change the structure of the existing Ministries? Would you consider abolishing, creating, or merging any of them? Why?
My main change - if one could even call it that - would be to institute a system of reviews, perhaps conducted by the DPM every so often, to ensure that each ministry is being efficient, and to note any requests for support from each ministry so that they can be able to complete their work efficiently and correctly, without issues going unnoticed.

5. What will be on your legislative agenda? What reforms would you like to make to existing laws and how will you lobby the House to pass these reforms?

I'd like to work on decentralization. I feel the Capital wields a little too much power over the territories, particularly over states - I wish to make states at the very least more equal to the capital - less high court control over what states courts can and can't do, for example. I feel the union would be better off with everyone more equal, less the capital overlording the rest of the union. I would lobby the house to pass these reforms via me (hopefully) being a house rep, and therefore proposing these changes myself, and hoping that the rest of the house recognizes the benefits of such reforms.

6. What plans do you have to tackle inactivity in the World Assembly, what will you do to address this issue? Please provide a detailed plan.

Ensure that WA delegates encourage WA voting, perhaps even polling citizens of their respective regions to encourage interest in the WA.

7. The Union in recent history has had an image problem when it comes to foreign affairs, how do you plan to address this?
I plan on encouraging the FA ministry to try to repair our relations with former allies, and to encourage that those who doubt whether we have improved enough to come visit - complete new leadership in the form of a new PM is always a good sign for change, surely.

8. Do you plan on restoring the Union Armed Forces? If so, what do you plan for it?

Absolutely. I have long wanted to see a grand Union defender army, and plan to work with Renegalle to ensure it is set up, as I am aware it has been stuck in the pipeline for months by this point.

9. As Prime Minister of the Union, it is your job to ensure the voices of every state and territory is heard and not just the capital. What plans do you have to address the lack of inter-union participation?

I would like to encourage Culture to conduct more pan-union events, encourage local leaders to spread the word about said events so that more pan-union citizens take part. Me running for PM alone is a good sign for inter-union participation, being a non-capital citizen, and native to a state.

10. The Union Roleplay has suffered from serious inactivity issues. What are your plans to address this?

I will encourage individuals to join the union RP, likely by way of an advertisement campaign, as currently I rarely hear about the union RP and to be honest quite frequently forget it exists.

11. The Union has suffered from a lack of voter turnout in recent months. What are your plans to address this?
This is a hard one to address. I would likely begin by opening investigations into why this is the case for each region, as there is a not insignificant chance that the reasons may vary from region to region, and therefore need more region-specific solutions. A bit of a non-answer, but until such an investigation is conducted, little can be done to meaningfully rectify it.

12. Any other comments you would like to add?

Cheese.

Required: Questions for all House Representative Candidates

1. Which House Bills do you plan to pass and/or repeal? Why?
No bills that I can think of, more thinking of amending the constitution.

2. In what ways should the Constitution be amended, if at all? Explain how the changes would improve the current system of governance.
I think that the constitution should be amended to lessen the stranglehold the capital has over states and territories; State courts should be able to conduct major trials of their own accord, instead of the high court interfering and taking over major criminal trials, in particular. Of course, there should be exceptions for if a State has no court, of course, as these crimes would have to go to another court.

3. What qualifies you to serve in the House? What makes this qualifying?

Several previous terms, several previous proposals, qualifying for obvious reasons.

4. Do you think any changes should be made to existing House Procedures? If so, what changes should be made and why?

None that I can think of, no.

5. If elected, do you plan on running for Speaker? If so, what makes you a good candidate for this position and if not, who do you think would be a better candidate?

I do not; It would be a bit power-hungry to run for speaker, whilst potentially PM, as that centralizes too much power on one person.

6. How do you plan to ensure the voices of your constituents are heard while in office?

I encourage them to voice their opinions on house matters to me, at any point.

7. How do you feel about the influence parties have on the House and electoral process, and should it be more or less? Explain your answer fully.

Whilst parties do influence the house in terms of voting as generally parties vote the same way, people will always band together in some way, shape or form, and trying to change that is folly.

8. The House of Representatives is the sole legal body with the ability to remove a Prime Minister from office. Under what circumstances would you support the removal of one and what constitutes 'going too far'? Cite specific legal passages if necessary and ensure that your answer is sufficiently detailed.

If the PM conducts any criminal act, or an act that is not criminal, but severely damages the reputation of the Union as a whole, they should be removed.
