The Federalist party of Canada you get this from the party’s constitution.

Introduction

The Federalist Party is based upon the principles of direct democracy of the membership. Open nominations solely by the Party membership. MP standing for Member of Parliament and not member of party. Party elections conducted by a non-partisan, independent officer and clear accountability of the leadership to the members. The general principles of National policy that the Party supports will be defined later. The recognition that there will be two parties organized the same as the Federalist party. The second being a part of the membership of the Federalist party, either on the left or right politically, that leaves and forms that second Party using the same constitution and organization.

Conservative nomination story

Liberal nomination story

Both the Conservatives and Liberals are having trouble over their nominations. I quit the NDP in 2009 because as a riding president I received an email from the national office stating that to run in an nomination election you first had to be approved by the national office. I was an activist member for 7 years at that point and simply left the party. I had no say in this policy that just appears out of the blue. I founded a new federal party to operate differently then this.

13.0 Amendments to the Constitution of the Federalist Party of Canada shall be voted on and passed solely by the National Assembly of the Party.

The registered members of the federalist party vote directly by internet ballot on the party’s constitution. I personally would support adding the option of a mail-in ballot for members.

10.2 The National Assembly and the National Congress in regular session by two-thirds majority votes shall pass a Federal Election by-law to govern all national and nomination elections of the Party.

The rules that govern nomination elections must be passed by the National Assembly.

10.5 There shall be a Federal Election Officer (FEO). This officer shall be
responsible for the conduct of all national and nomination elections and the
administration of the Party’s voters list.

10.6 The Federal Election Officer is elected by a two-thirds majority vote of the National Congress in regular session with a concurring two-thirds majority vote of the National Assembly. This officer can be removed by the same vote in the Assembly and Congress. The term of office shall be for 10 years.

An independent non partisan election officer with a long term of office. The federalist party’s equivalent to the chief electoral officer.

4.7 The Congress in regular session by a three-quarters majority vote can bar a party member from being a candidate for the Federalist nomination for the House of Commons. The Congress by a two-thirds majority vote can rescind the Candidacy of a member after they have won the nomination election.

If your eligible to run for the House of Commons for that riding and are a
member in good standing you can automatically run for the nomination. Only the National Congress can bar you from running. The Congress is the top two candidates for the nomination in each riding and thus is 676 members.

11.3 The Leader shall sign all nomination and Election Canada papers. Any
refusal shall mean the automatic and immediate expulsion from the Party.

The members decide who will be the nominee with review by the National Congress. In the Federalist party of Canada the Leader CAN’T toss you under the bus.

Acting president Barry Aulis
