Hmm just two independents in my area so far, i see the nomination period is open until 17/10 though.
This time around with the general public being "a little suspicious" of the pro-regime organizations they can be expected to resort to undercover tactics on an even larger scale. On the other hand there just might be an endless supply of young people willing to "de-mask" party plants masquerading as independents.
In fact in a time like this it's hard to imagine anyone truly remaining a fence-sitter. One is either pro-regime or pro-democracy.
Would someone be kind enough to start a thread that could possibly have the Geo community vet candidates in different districts?
