As we mentioned here, ordinary members of the European Pirate Party can send delegates to the council meeting so that they can vote, provided they are up to date on their membership fees. But what does this mean? Well, it’s all there in the statutes, especially Art. 13 and 15, but for the sake of transparency and ease of use, we’ve compiled it for you.
You’ll find you respective amount of delegates, votes and membership fee here. As you’ll notice, the fees for both 2014 and 2015 have to be paid in order for your party to enjoy full rights within the organisation.
Please note though, that the following parts of the statutes apply:
(7) Members must pay their annual contribution between the first of January and the date of the annual Council meeting. On request of the concerned Ordinary Member party the Council may allow them under special circumstances with a 2/3-majority of the votes cast to delay their annual contribution for up to one year or relieve them of the payment or a part of it. The member party concerned may not vote on such a decision.
(8) If a Member Party did not pay their due membership fee for two consecutive years until the first Council meeting of the second year, they are deemed to have left the Association by resignation automatically.
(10) Any Ordinary member may also choose to use the lower result for the allocating of votes and delegates. Any Ordinary Member may also forgo additional or supplementary votes deliberately which will also lower their membership fee.
