Let them decide the "issues" for the class-but be sure they are realistic-maybe negotiate an extra 5 mins recess as a party platform. Be sure to have strict rules about civility-debate the issues-not personalities. Have a series of "town halls"so that the class has a chance to talk about the issues they think are important.
I decided against an election-didn't want hurt feelings or political arguments, so we are going to have a referendum instead. We will have a choice of what kind of class reward they want for their reading-they are keeping track in 15 min. increments. They will need to lobby and have posters and then we will have vote.
Good luck.
