|Name and nicks||Bc. Vojtěch Pikal|
|member of Pirate Party||PP-CZ|
|qualifications||Im just a humble member of Pirate Party who cant stand this anymore.
Year ago, I stormed up as the proxy of remote delegates and candidate into CoA and succeeded and today, I'm something similar again. Ive spend some time working in CoA hoping to help the PPI to reach better RoP and handle during the year the bad and wrong things that happened in the Prag. It Did Not happened.
Im a Chief of administrative department of PP-CZ and regional board member in PP-CZ, Im successfully chairing online meeting of PP-CZ for more than a year. I was regional president PP-CZ (2,1% in the local elections) and member of controlling committee. Im also appointed person to represent the PP-CZ policy on "political parties".
Im storming up for better rules, for real communication between members, to move our meetings online, to assure remote participation and democratic and transparent decision taking(of both Board and GA). For real 21st century Pirate Party coordination platform as it should work.
|language(s)||Czech, English, etwa Deutsch|
|motivation and political background||Only thing I want to do is to make the PPI to fulfill its base purpose - create a communication (and hopefully coordination) platform for Pirate parties word-wide and Pirate movement globally. Make the forum - we already have - work, set and simplify our rules, take real care of our mumble, mailing-lists, coordinate campaigns, connect members who can work together. And maybe help to establish a PP-EU. If we as PPI cant reach and help these goals within a year, there is no purpose of PPI then, just dissolve and become informal (no)body.
After we reach this basic goal, I will happily resign on this position, and let it empty to be reclaimed by "real politicians", as Im only an administrative rat, in fact.

Co-Chairmen (2 positions)
|Name and nicks||Gregory Engels|
|Sponsor||Pirate Party of Germany.|
|member of Pirate Party||Pirate Parties of Germany, Hesse, Kazakhstan, Russia, Luxembourg and Sweden|
|language(s)||I am fluent in English, German and Russian|
|motivation and political background||The coming year is a turning point for the Pirate Movement. Pirates have entered into Parliaments, and we are seeing its gain momentum that many have not dreamed of even a year ago. New Pirate Parties are being founded and old ones experience a land rush like growth. But this dynamics also bring new challenges. We need a shift in professionalism inside our structures and inside PPI to make sure that the Pirate Movement will survive this growth. We need to reach out to our allies to face the growing global threats that are threatening to all of us - things like SOPA, PIPA, still not yet dead ACTA, and new challenges like IPRED. We need to support PPI's members on the international level. And we need to focus on the whole world, not just our neighborhood - because this world is interconnected and bad legislation in any part of it will in the end be everyone's problem, if we remain motionless.
I am running for reelection as PPI Co-Chairman on the post. Being on the post has turned out to be rather an obstacle for a Pirate than an advantage. We have struggled a lot to unwind a chaos left over by the previous administration and, even that we were partially successful, some of more important issues remain unsolved. We have started a lot of projects and I really would like to execute them to a level of completeness where it is easy for the next board to take it over and not going through the same struggles that we had to face.

That's about it. Worship me as God and your harvests will be plentiful. Not like you'd know the difference anyway.
|language(s)||Dutch, English, translate.google|
|motivation and political background||The incumbent board sucks. This is no surprise looking at the delegates.
Vote me. For prez. It's your only hope. (Well, maybe Obi-Wan Kenobi.)
Honestly, I have no idea why you would vote for me. I might actually be inclined to hope you don't, so I can proceed unabashed with being critical of this truly amazing organisation. Nonetheless, it's far too easy being critical on the sidelines, so I'm giving you [redacted] this once in a lifetime opportunity to make me put my money where my mouth is.
I solemnly swear that any membership fees levied on the participating parties will be spent on hookers and blow in all far corners of the world. Video materials of these proceedings will be made available to ensure that said parties will not repeat such a grave misallocation of resources.
My first action will be resolve the PP-ES/PP-CAT-issue, by having each party select a champion for a sabre duel to the death. Should either party refuse to partake in these proceedings, they will both be excommunicated. Video materials as per usual. This will be our default conflict resolution untill such a distant event occurs as the reformation of a CoA.
Oh, yes, and Gregory will be locked up in a basement with the paperwork and fed through a hole in the ceiling. We might be able to generate ad revenue from a webcam stream and an unsecured, browser-based voting system giving him tasks.
Now that we have the important matters out of the way, I'd like to spend a minute on some trivialities we need to address.

Board members (5 positions)
|Name and nicks||Gabdrakhmanov Azat|
|Sponsor||Pirate Party of Russia|
|Member of Pirate Party||Pirate Party of Russia|
|Languages||Russian, English, Tatar|
|Motivation and political background||
Motto: "The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion".
Participated in few parlament elections as an observer, elected to local PEC for the next 5 years. Participated in many protest actions, where trained my speach on public and formed my view on society. Donated to wikileaks and wiki.
My point is that the role of the government has to be significantly reduced, which means:
1) Free (doesn't mean "for free"), nonstate, but non-commertial character of education. Maximum level of optionality, arbitrary choice of direction (while keeping few recommended ways of education). Internet as a human right.
2) Freedom to act provided that it doesn't harm others, including freedom of research, information access freedom, psycho-active substances legalization, freedom of agreements.
3) Termination of a) compulsory military service, b) restrictions on freedom of movement, c)passports.
4) Reduction of central government taxes to minimum level to guarantee society from external threats and security againts violence inside the society. Freedom to distribute (within paragraphs) local taxes, with taxes amount defined on plebiscite. Protection of public space from privatization.
5) Delegates and participatory democracy. Dismantling of representative democracy institutes. Promoting making decisions, fundraising via network vs. taxes and representative democracy. Getting as much of consensus as possible vs. 50+% rule.

|Name and nicks||Thomas Gaul|
|member of Pirate Party||Pirate Party of Germany|
|motivation and political background||In my eyes it is vital for PPI to be in touch with other NGOs and hopefully with other international institutions, as the board had already began. Beside the board we do need some kind of a second level within the PPI, you might call it teams. As we all can see some few elected members to the board can't solve all the problems that evolve. We do need the members of the PPI to be acting as one on some aspects, e.g. CISPA. On ACTA we all did a great job! Now it is time to move forward. "Infiltrating" all those lobbying filth might be a start. But as you might know - my main issue is something else. Human rights and related issues would be on my agenda (beside the boring every day work of a board member (don't forget even access to information via Internet is a human right). We have to be in touch with relevant organizations beside PPI on this. This means: attend meetings, exchange of information with relevant organizations and so forth. (tbc)|

|motivation and political background||
A while ago I sent an email roughly saying something like this:
From my report:
"If the board model changes I will happily be a representative, if not I won’t run for scapegoat again but will still cooperate gladly with the new board and offer my first pieces of sincere advice: fulfill your promises; be diligent; be patient; ignore the trolls or “tie” them with logic and their own words; be patient; ignore personal attacks, they reveal more about the attackers than about yourself; be patient; be kind when dealing with others; try to change the world; don’t despair if you can’t; did I say be patient already?; and last but not least, in the words of a wise man, have fun while trying to change the world!"
So the SAP-27 didn't pass, and the board model didn't change, but on the other way SAP-24 did pass and now needs care taking and since I care deeply about it I have to reconsider my decision to not run for scapegoat in the board's current model, a ctually, I can't even consider not to run now :P So this is my formal candidature for the board as a normal board member. If you need further info on me you can refer to the amended text of my candidature of last year:
I’ve never managed to fit myself in the narrow view of left/right politics because I don’t like political menus that force you to choose just one of them as a whole. Issues in politics should be a buffet where you are free to choose from any point in the spectrum according to your beliefs in each one.
It is my goal to promote the tools of Liquid Democracy because, quoting myself from the amendment, “PPI should be using them also, to set the example and show the advantages of such systems to all its current and future members, instead of adopting the rigid models of plain old parties that bind democracy to specific election/voting dates separated by long periods of detachment where few decide for all.
Anyway, trying to find where I fitted in the political spectrum I took the Political Compass testand though I thought I would be more to the center of it (I guess all those religious questions made me drift), I was pleased to see my company in that quadrant of the analysis:)

|Name and nicks||Andrew Norton|
|Sponsor||Pirate Party NL, Australia|
|member of Pirate Party|| * US Pirate Party
|qualifications||Degrees in Robotics, physics, maths, and chemistry. Trained in accident/incident investigation.
|language(s)||I am a native English speaker. I can get by in French, Spanish and Italian, and I can read (at various levels of competency) Swedish, German, Welsh, Dutch and Portuguese (many of these I picked up during my tenure as PPI head). I'm planning on adding Japanese over the summer.|
|motivation and political background||My primary motivation is integrity. I ensure that my intentions are perfectly open and transparent. When I make a mistake I willingly admit to it, and readily accept the blame. Likewise I expect the same from others, and will not hesitate to hold others to the same standard I hold myself.
My views on Pirate topics can be read here The Prague conference was a shambles. the aftermath of it made a mockery of Pirate Principles. For the last 8 months, the Board acted without oversight or supervision, and that was reflected in the officer reports released pre-event, the lack of progress of any substantial goals (like obtaining a bank account) and the mess that was Day1 of the conference. (when it takes 30 minutes to find a way for remote delegates to actually contribute half-way through the first day, that's NOT a good sign). It makes a mockery of our ideals, and our very existence. We need to bring PPI back into line with our stated goals, which includes transparency and accountability, and I pledge to do just that to the best of my ability. I already have investigative and evidence-evaluation experience through both the accident investigation and copyright troll activities, so that aspect of the job I'm especially well suited to.

|Name and nicks||Thomas Bruderer|
|member of Pirate Party||Pirate Party of Switzerland|
|language(s)||I am fluent in German and English and understand most French but don't speak it very well.|
|motivation and political background|| The motivation is primarily to make things better I critizised in the past. I am aware that we do not have many lawyers in our party which can make this job. And I think I could be the next best thing to a lawyer because I devouted quite some time into the legislation and law.
I will adhere to the laws to the letter impartial and without any current ties to any executive in any pirate party. I am only member of the swiss pirate party at the moment, and I think it is important to have the independance of the juristiction.
I will push for a clean process, and the first thing I will try to do is make procedures which everyone can understand and which define the whole process between the issuing a case until the case is done. This shall include rules on who is allowed to talk about what, who must abstain, who shall be included into the process and exactly how a judgment must be issued.
