To become a candidate, you must have at least 300 [[experience points]]. There are two basic ways to reach the party page where you can put your Congress nomination. Between the 16th and 23rd of the month you can:
+
*Go to your party page - Click on [[Community]] - [[Party]].
+
*Click the button - [[File:Run for Congress.jpg|150px]].
+
*Read the statement and enter a URL for a presentation on why people should vote for you.  This can be a newspaper article, a forum topic, or a link to your wiki citizen page.
+
*Click Agree
+
*The screen will refresh and you will get the message: ''You have applied to represent your party in the congress elections. The party president will select the official candidates on the 24th.''
+
*The Run for Congress button will be replaced with two new buttons:

+
The '''maximum number of Congress members''' depends on the number of regions. In the most cases the the available seats are 40 (if a country has between 4 and 40 regions).
+
 
+
;'''<span style="color:red;">WARNING!</span>''': ''If you applied for Congress in your party and the region from where you applied is conquered<ref>If you applied from a region belonging to a foreign country, last region where you resided in is considered your application region.</ref> until 25th of the month at 00:00, you will lose candidacy.<br />You can avoid this situation if you are located in another region from your citizenship country until 25th of the month at 00:00. Once you got removed from the list, you can not be added back unless you reapply.''

==Election day==
+
{{Main|Voting system}}
+
On the main page, above the Feeds there will be displayed a blue frame mentioning that is an election day (as well as a small blue notification pop up in the bottom left corner of the screen). Clicking on that frame/notification, you will be redirected to the voting page.<br>
+
Alternatively, you can access the voting page through the menu; Community --> Elections. ''(Note: This page is available all the time in order to see past elections results.)''
+
 
+
When expressing your choice in Congress Elections, you will choose a party.<br>
+
You can view the list of the candidate congress members of each party.
+
 
+
The old Congress members lose their seats the second day after the Congress elections. That is on 27th of each month, due to the 24-hour period of the Election Review.

+
==Duties of Congress members==
+
*Voting on proposals proposed by the [[President]].
+
*[[Country administration#Congress Members|Propose laws]]
+
*[[Accepting citizenship|Accept citizenship]] requests.
+
Most countries have a slightly more advanced system where Congress members can register at forums to discuss and decide on a lot more things than just sitting and voting on proposals.
+
 
+
==Alerts==
+
The Congress members will receive notification when they will get elected and whenever there's a law proposal.
+
 
+
The [[President]] and the Congress members will receive a notification if their country has been proposed as [[Natural enemy]] or as target of [[Airstrike]] by another country.
+
 
+
==Change of citizenship==
+
A Congress member is unable to change citizenship without resigning, as you can only be a member of a political party (subsequently a Congressman) of whichever country you have citizenship in.
+
 
+
==Losing Congress seat==
+
The only way to lose your Congress seat is to resign from Congress, through [[Country_administration|Administration page]].<br>
+
If you leave your party or your country (as of changing region), you will '''not''' lose the Congress seat.
