Careful when running for congress

Post by nickbergman on Tue Jun 24, 2014 10:18 am

WARNING!
If you applied for Congress in your party and the region from where you applied is conquered (If you applied from a region belonging to a foreign country, last region where you resided in is considered your application region) until 25th of the month at 00:00, you will lose candidacy.
You can avoid this situation if you are located in another region from your citizenship country until 25th of the month at 00:00. Once you got removed from the list, you can not be added back unless you reapply. 

Election day

In the main menu, after accessing the 'Community' tab, a button named 'Elections' will be displayed for all citizens. This way, while you are in the New World you will only be one click away from seeing what's new in the eRepublik elections. (Note: This page is available all the time in order to see past elections results.)
When expressing your choice in Congress Elections, you will choose a party.
The old Congress members lose their positions.

Duties of Congress members

- Voting on proposals proposed by the President.
- Propose laws
- Accept citizenship requests

Most countries have a slightly more advanced system where Congress members can register at forums to discuss and decide on a lot more things than just sitting and voting on proposals.

Alert

The President and the Congress members will receive a private message announcing this issue if his/her country declared as natural enemy.

Change of citizenship

A Congress member is unable to change citizenship without resigning, as you can only be a member of a political party (subsequently a Congressman) of whichever country you have citizenship in.

Interesting fact

If you leave your party or your country, you will not lose the Congress seat. The only way to lose that sit is to resign from Congress.
