A nomination is where a person, a person in power, or a political party presents a candidate to fill a position in government. Use to discuss the nomination process and any politics in deciding who the nominee will be. Use with tags for the position of nomination and/or tags about who is doing the nominating. Always use with a relevant country tag.

Nominees are typically presented to a larger or governing body for selection for a role in government

Nominations may be made by

  • The candidate directly (self-nomination)
  • A person in power (i.e. a president nominating for a judgeship)
  • A political party (often through primary elections)

Use this tag to discuss the process of nominations and any related politics. Always use with tags about the country, position, and/or who is doing the nomination
