Speaking as a regular user here (per the line: "This discussion is open to any user, not merely those involved with the Senate in an official capacity."). I've been observing this discussion for a while and quite frankly at times its made me want to shove my head into my desk. You do realize, that generally in most societies, when there is an election forthcoming, that if nobody is running against the incumbent candidate, the election goes on anyways, with the incumbent being re-elected as a result of no contest? Is it not the same for this establishment? I mean, if you are truly upset with the current leadership, you would have either ran against it yourselves. The proposition by Chancellor Sinrebirth to extend the deadline is more than fair in my opinion - he's giving you guys time to work up a campaign against him. Just thought I'd give some insight so you guys would perhaps quit bickering and make a more efficient use of time.
