AF-1 Original motion from Paris

Title Affiliation Fees according to the original Paris proposal
Put by PPI Board
Sponsor PPI Board
Motion The fee is calculated as follows: the actual HDI of a country is taken as a exponent to 500 to get the basis fee. This basis fee is multiplied with following factors: for each elected pirate on national level times two, for each elected member of a regional parliament times 1/5, and for each elected member on a local level times 1/10. This multiplied values are then added to the basis value.

(*) For the calculation it is non discriminatory if the pirate is holding a mandate in the executive or legislative brunch.

Rationale The base for the fee calculation is the HDI (Human Development Index) published by the UNHDR http://hdr.undp.org/en/statistics/hdi The Idea is that the Pirate Parties from developed countries could afford a higher sum than those from the developing and the least developed ones. Also that the countries with election successes (with elected representatives) could afford more than parties that are in the process of the foundation.

    • and for each elected member on a local level times 1/10.

Sponsor Flag of Germany.svg PP-DE
Motion The fee is calculated as follows: the actual HDI of a country is taken as an exponent to 500 to get the basis fee. This basis fee is multiplied with following factors: for each elected(*) pirate on national level times two, for each elected member of a regional parliament times 1/5th, and for each elected member on a local level times 1/35th. This multiplied values are then added to the basis value. Parties with less then 500 Members and Observing Members are paying fees on a voluntarily basis at their own discretion. No member shall contribute more then 50% of all PPI's due fees.

(*) For the calculation it is non discriminatory if the pirate is holding a mandate in the executive or legislative brunch.

Rationale The base for the fee calculation is the HDI (Human Development Index) published by the UNHDR http://hdr.undp.org/en/statistics/hdi The Idea is that the Pirate Parties from developed countries could afford a higher sum than those from the developing and the least developed ones. Also that the countries with election successes (with elected representatives) could afford more than parties that are in the process of the foundation.

We believe that PPI need solid finances. On the same time we think, that the current proposal is to much of a burden to smaller parties. Espetially the local elected representatives are just the first step on the success road of a political party, and there is no direct immediate financial benefit to the party from its elected local members, and therefore we think that the effect on determinig the membership fee should be much smaller then proposed 1/10th and prefer 1/35th instead.

Also, no party should be paying more then 50% of all Fees, since this could create some unhealthy preassure on the organization.
