Your are simply jumping too late onto the train.  There are rules for
elections which can't be changed on the request from a potential new
candidate who missed the deadline.  That is unfortunate for us all but
this is how things work.

Now, it might happen that an elected candidate won't accept his election
or someone will contest the election.  In both cases it is possible that
we will have a new election.  A new election with the same rules but
this time with you being able to candidate.

BTW: It is not to uncommon that there is only one candidate; for example
see the Debian elections from 2011:



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
