We have been voting on the following document.

The proposals can be found here.

Total voters : 32


Motie 1 : Financiëen - Motion 1 : Finances

1.1 Renumeratie van mandaten - Réemunération des mandats

Vote 1: (Postponed)

13 green / 14 red

  • Discussions during the GA:
    • These number don't mean anything, 22,5% have to be specified and we need a distinction between full-time and part-time mandates.
    • A percentage of the national revenues should go towards the crews, in order to allocate a budget.
    • The underlying question is how strongly the elected people should be connected to the party (does one deal with his/her budget all alone,or is he/she getting it back from the party with help ?
    • Distinction between full time job versus city counselors.
    • Maximum/minimum wage for elected people (put a cap to avoid people who come just for the money).
    • Budget of the party could be voted on the GAs so that we know what will happen to the money.
    • More proposals will be made on a next GA.
    • We have to use crowd funding.
    • Should the elected people who get paid give some money to the party or should they give all their remuneration to the party that will retrocede them back a "salary" ?

1.2 Cotisation des membres - Lidgeld

Vote 2: D

Since the pairs A&C and B&D were very similar, we decided at first to choose between A&C (red cards) or B&D (green cards)
