Election disclosures

Subject to the definition of forum post in regulation 2 of the Election (No. 2) Regulations 2018, I have created this thread. Candidates should file the required disclosures specified in regulation 4 of the Election Regulations 2020 here.

Here, you should be able to find the past-activities disclosures of candidates which are running in commissionership elections. You can read the regulations requiring these disclosures, in full, here:

For people who are filing disclosures, I would recommend a format something like this:

Elections for: March 2018
NS nation: NATION-NAME-HERE

Regulation 4(1) Election Regulations 2020: (previous involvement in other regions, including former positions, terms, and the names of which held those positions)

ANSWER

Regulation 4(2) Election Regulations 2020: (any involvement in military operations in NationStates, the organisations with which they were involved)

ANSWER

Regulation 4(3) Election Regulations 2020: (previous authorship of World Assembly resolutions (including failed resolutions), authorship of NationStates Issues, and other NationStates-wide engagements)

ANSWER​

A guide to disclosures
Last updated, 18 March 2018
If you're confused, I would recommend reading into some of the laws and regulations. The following are the most relevant ones:
The former creates the process by which we hold elections. It, in the section 6(e), states that

The European Council may make regulations on the conduct of elections and require the publication of materials or response to questions relevant to a candidacy.
This is the enabling clause by which the Council creates regulations like the second regulation, the Election (No. 2) Regulations 2018. Those regulations have a number of requirements. In short, they are that members of the Cabinet are ineligible to the Commission, candidates must disclose on the RMB their forum user and Discord user, various disclosures on past history, and no campaigning to non-electors.

How and what to disclose
This section may become outdated over time. This is written in reflection of the laws in force as of 18 March 2018.

1. Note your candidacy. This is generally done by noting that candidacy on the RMB and then linking that RMB post to inform the Delegate.

2. Disclose on the RMB your Discord account and forum account. You can find your forum account on this forum. Scroll to the top right, click your name, and copy it over. It should take something like this form:

Finding the Discord one is slightly more difficult. But it too should not be hard. In Discord, open preferences and select My Account. Under Username, you should see something like: ImperiumAnglorum#2947. That is your Discord tag.

Obviously, both of these are my own tags. But you should then post your forum account and Discord tag to the regional message board. Something like the following would be sufficient, with appropriate substitutions:

In fulfilment of the transparency requirements specified by the Election (No. 2) Regulations 2018, I affirm that XYZ#123 and FORUM_URL are my Discord account and forum account, respectively.
It is certainly fine to post these along with the post declaring your candidacy.

3. Disclose on the forum past involvement. You should do this in this thread. At the top in the first post, indented, there is a template. Copy that template, fill in the sections relevant to you (the date of the election and your NS nation name) and then the sections marked ANSWER.

I lodged a few posts in Europeia before leaving the region in December 2015 and subsequently moved to Israeli State (a now defunct region, founded as a split from the region of Israel) in the same year on the invitation of PM Golda Meir (the founding nation of the region of Israeli State)

Besides that, i was also the WA Delegate of Israeli State for nearly a year until PM Golda Meir ceased to exist, in which i decided to continue the late founder's duty until i moved to Europe at the end of 2016.
