This is meant to be the "Acceptance Spiel" in the election system, so
it wouldn't be difficult to elaborate on what's expected when
accepting a nomination.

I agree that it's not obvious what we expect be done with that spiel,
or what information should be provided in it.

It's certainly not something we can enforce be provided without
altering the constitution, but that shouldn't stop us from making it
highly recommended.

I'm of a view that this would increase transparency in the elections
substantially, and on that basis, will mention it in the next council
