2012 Elections?

Why is there no notice of the upcoming elections in the Mittark?  Could it be, as Cedric said, that there are no elections?  Could it be that he is so afraid of what could happen to him and his junta that he is willing to cancel the elections?  Let me put it to you this way:  there will either be free and open elections on the first Sunday of February, or there will be a revolution, complete with crowbars and sledge hammers.  These people have got to go?
