Candidate Guidance

This guidance details the process of how we conduct the video hustings, and acts as an agreement between all parties.


  1. We will select 5-8 questions and publish them on this portal.
  2. We will reach out and invite every candidate to take part.
  3. Candidates will have at least 7 days notice to submit their video answers at their convenience.
  4. We recommend candidates upload their answers directly to this portal for a straightforward audit trail. This also ensures immediate acknowledgment of video submission and early validation.
  5. Emphasizing quick responses: Priority in the video lineup is determined by response speed. The first to submit will lead the video, while the second submitter will conclude it, and positions for all others will be assigned based on their submission times.
  6. Following the receipt of all submissions or the passing of the deadline, the videos will be compiled and published.

  2. Claim your candidate profile by searching for your listed profile and then click "claim" next to it.
  3. Wait for a notification of approval from us, which should be within 24 hours.
  4. Visit our main home page and note there should be a splash screen indicating the profile you own, click on it.
  5. Follow the on-screen instructions to upload your profile photo and videos, and it will indicate what to do next.
  6. Continue until you see at least two green thumbs up .
  7. If you encounter any issues or need any support at all, contact

Follow Ups

Following publication of the final video each candidate will have the opportunity to post a single follow-up to clarify any points, or signpost appropriate material. This will be displayed by the video itself.
