The Ministry of Justice today advised all potential candidates for the Lambda House of Commons to register with the government before the deadline, at midnight, on 30 September 2009, with the official list of candidates prepared for posting on 1 October 2009.
There are 150 members of the House of Commons and 50 members of the appointed Senate. The term of a Member of Parliament is six months, or less if a vote of no confidence occurs.
The Dominion of Lambda has the Liberal Party of Lambda and the Conservative Party of Lambda. Those candidates who claim "independent status" must indicate if they will caucus with the Liberals or conference with the Conservatives when they register. Lambda has three provinces - namely Wilde Province - Toklas Province and King Province....and candidates must also indicate which province they will represent.
For the first Parliamentary elections, October 1-31, 2009, the first 150 candidates posted will sit in the House of Commons. The majority will determine who will win the right to be asked by Governor General Lee Dorsey, in the name of the Crown, to form a new government. The Leader of the Loyal Opposition will stand in opposition and form a "shadow government" able to discuss the matter. The Governor General will invite the Leader of the majority of Members to form the government on November 1, 2009.
Lambda is a (written) constitutional monarchical parliamentary democracy. The authority of the nation is the Queen, the Parliament and the Supreme Court of Lambda.
