Elected Secretary


The June 2022 Secretarial election was the twenty-fifth election to elect a Secretary in The Leftist Assembly, and the fourth separate Secretarial election. Voting was held from 8 to 11 June 2022.

Podria was elected with a majority on the first count, marking their first term as Secretary with the 1st Podria Cabinet.

Methodology[edit | edit source]

Voter eligibility[edit | edit source]

To be eligible to vote, a nation had to be an electoral citizen, which requires that individual to reside in The Leftist Assembly with their World Assembly nation (World Assembly citizen), or to have their World Assembly nation be registered in an affiliated anti-fascist military (Military Voting citizen) or an embassy region (Dual citizen).

Ballots[edit | edit source]

For the Secretarial election, instant runoff voting (IRV) was used, whereby voters rank the candidates in order of their preference. The primary vote of each candidate is then tallied, and the candidate with the least votes is eliminated and their votes preferentially distributed in a repeated process until one candidate achieves a majority. If there is only one candidate, they face a confidence vote instead.

The election committee consisted of founder Kavagrad, Ghillemear, and Yong. Voting was held 8-11 March as originally scheduled, and the committee released the results on 12 March.

Endorsements[edit | edit source]

Only endorsements by nations who have previously served in an executive or legislative leadership position are recorded.
