A summary of Candidate campaigns. Please read campaigns yourself to get full information.

We The People Gouvernor | Campaign: "WTP for Senate!"

WTP's campaign focuses on their ability to be honest. They emphasize that their honesty as a quality that will help them within the Senate. They have also promoted cooperation amongst Senators and hope to work with them in order to get legislative ideas passed; however, WTP has not listed any specific legislative agenda.

British Isles and Commonwealth Realms | Campaign: Isles for Senate (one last time)

Isle's campaign focuses on one singular goal: to reform or abolish the Assembly. They also hope that this election can serve as a referendum/survey on Isle's performance as Senator thus-far.

Kingdom of Sacento | Campaign: Sacento for Senate! no.3

Sacento's campaign is primarily based on policy, laying out the following goals: a) reform the General Assembly, b) provide more experience in the legislature, c) introduce summary of laws, and d) serve as an active Senator. Sacento has also expressed interest in serving as Deputy Speaker.

How Candidates perceive common issues and debates that are being discussed in election campaigns.


We The People Gouvernor: They decidedly do not support abolition, and will try to only change the General Assembly by how the Assembly itself wants to be changed.

British Isles and Commonwealth Realms: Wishes to either finish reforming or abolishing the General Assembly, although they do not state how in their campaign. Isles has further stated that should the Assembly retain its current activity, he will not be moving towards abolition.

Kingdom of Sacento: Supports General Assembly reform where interested Citizens must sign up to serve in the Assembly, but with some changes to make the linked amendment more feasible.


As more issues arise, they will be brought up here~

The election's final results. The official Chancellor announcement can be found here.

Ultimately, 20 Citizens cast voted in this election, with all such votes being valid! This represents a 25% increase from the General Assembly Chairperson By-Election, which had 16 voters (keeping in mind that Senators could not vote then). Voting was conduced via a Google Form provided by the Chancellors.

Here are the final voting results (based on average placement):

=> British Isles and Commonwealth Realms: 1.75
=> Kingdom of Sacento: 2.40
=> We The People Gouvernor: 2.93
=> Re-open Nominations: 2.95


With all three candidates scoring an average lower than RON (lower average=more votes one got), Isles, Sacento, and We The People are elected to serve to the Senate. Everyday News gives its hearty congratulations to these individuals, and hopes for a productive Senate term!
