The Liberal Youth Returning Officer writes... is it that time already?

Heavens, it only seems like an instant ago that one of the bloodiest youth elections since 1873 was concluded, and here I am, called into action again.

Curiously, the Federal Constitution of Liberal Youth is silent on the definition of a candidate for office, leaving me obliged to refer to Article 15: Interpretations & Dispute Resolution and, in particular, 15.1, which covers Rules of Interpretation.

And so, without further ado, here is my first ever Rule of Interpretation...

The definition of a 'candidate' for the purposes of Article 9.12(h) shall be any individual member of Liberal Youth who so declares themself in a public medium. This shall include, but not be restricted to, blogs and social media.

This Rule of Interpretation has been sent to the Chair of Liberal Youth so that she may fulfil her obligations under Article 15.3 of the Federal Constitution...
