Calside General Elections 2019

 

And the winner is……

on Wednesday the 23rd of January P5/6/7 held an election to see who would be the winning party. 13 parties took part and had the chance to deliver their speeches on what their party promises were. Other parties were then allowed to challenge their promises by asking questions.

After the speeches all the children had the chance to vote for their favourite party using our ballot papers. We had to make sure we put a cross in the box.

 

After the votes were counted we found out who was the winning party and the winners were the D.I.S.C.O party.  They got to make a winning speech to remind the pupils of their promises. Party leader  Skye said ‘she didn’t expect this and that the party will prove they were the correct choice’ after winning the vote.
