The March 2021 general election is the twentieth general election in The Leftist Assembly and voting will be held from 11 to 14 March 2021. The position of Secretary and six seats in the General Assembly will be available for election.

Methodology[edit | edit source]

Voter eligibility[edit | edit source]

To be eligible to vote, a nation must 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 Secretary election, instant runoff voting (IRV) is 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.

For the General Assembly election, the plurality-at-large voting system is used, whereby voters may select as many candidates as there are available seats according to their preference. The six candidates that have received the most votes are elected. If there are six or fewer candidates, they each face a confidence vote instead.

The election moderators are to be determined.

Endorsements[edit | edit source]

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