How are candidates selected? 

Any open election which does NOT require a deposit to be paid (eg local council elections).

  • All eligible candidates who sign the pledge against discriminatory behaviour are eligible to stand. The party will announce a closing date for all applications at which point:
  • Any unopposed nominations will be approved.
  • Any nominations with more than one candidate will be decided by random lottery.
  • Any unsuccessful candidates from the step above will be given the opportunity to be match themselves with any vacant areas within 24 hrs
  • The above 3 steps will be repeated as often as necessary until there are no vacant areas or no remaining candidates wishing to fill those areas


Any open election which DOES require a deposit

a) Candidates willing to fund the deposit themselves will be given priority access to any such seats. They will be required to purchase preference shares in BMBMB ltd prior to the notified closure date as a good faith gesture to secure their position, subject to signing the pledge document.


The following process will then take place:
  • Any unopposed nominations will be approved.
  • Any nominations with more. than one candidate will be decided by random lottery.
  • Any unsuccessful candidates from the step above will be given the opportunity to be match themselves with any vacant areas within 24 hrs.
  • The above 3 steps will be repeated as often as necessary until there are no vacant areas or no remaining candidates wishing to fill those areas If the candidate is ultimately successful in retaining their deposit, then the preference shares they hold will be redeemed in full.


b
) Candidates unable to fund their own deposit If there are any unallocated vacancies after deposit-funding candidacies are determined, any further vacancies will be funded out of contributions to the party.

The party treasurer shall allocate funds to appropriate target areas as they and the nominating office see fit.

The same process will be followed in such areas as for non-deposit based elections What is the party pledge? “I swear to do my best in elected office to return the UK, in whole or in part, to the European Union.


What is the party pledge? 

“I commit to do my best in elected office to return the UK, in whole or in part, to the European Union.

I will always use my vote to support the specific course of action that in my view brings the community I represent closer to the European Union.

I condemn all who espouse hate speech against other people based on race, nationality, religion, gender, disability, sexual orientation, or other irrelevant factor to an individual’s position in society. 

I agree to take care in my use of all media going forward to respect this position, and repudiate any prior media or social media comments attributed to myself that appear to contradict this.

It is my intention for this statement to be morally binding and, insofar as possible under the law, legally binding.

I understand that deviating from this pledge may result in the Rejoin EU Party withdrawing consent to stand under its party name in elections”
