The Leftist Assembly election, March 2016 was the first election in The Leftist Assembly and voting was held from 24 March to 27 March. This election was the first and last to run under the multi-party system, with the Solidarity Party, Worker's Army Party, and Independent Leftist Front. The positions of Secretary, Prime Minister, Minister of Law, and Minister of Archives were available for election, while Minister of Defence, Minister of Immigration and Customs, and Minister of Foreign Affairs were all appointed by the Secretary.

Essentially, candidates were nominated for different positions (they could also run for multiple positions) by their parties, or they could run as independents. In addition to this, there was an additional vote to award each party a number of seats out of the total 100 in the General Assembly, where new legislation was passed.

The ministers elected were Atealia as Secretary of the Assembly, Auven as Prime Minister, Fidels Beard as Minister of Archives, New Prague Workers Republic as Chief Justice, Celera as First Justice, and Devadia (later replaced by United States of Unfreedom) as Second Justice. The ministers appointed by the Secretary to the General Assembly were Cedoria as Minister of Defence, Lightmine (later replaced by British Accia) as Minister of Immigration and Customs, and Khasinkonia as Minister of Foreign Affairs.



To be eligible to vote, a nation must be part of the World Assembly and reside in The Leftist Assembly. The voter awarded their one vote to their preferred candidate, otherwise known as first-past-the-post voting, on a Google Forms document created by United States of Unfreedom.


The election moderators were British Accia, Atealia, and United States of Unfreedom. Votes were counted using the first-past-the-post voting system. In this system, the candidate with the most amount of primary votes wins. In the case of the Minister of Law election, second and third place also receive positions, First and Second Justice respectively. In the case of Minister of Archives, a tight race between three candidates prompted a second round, which eventually resulted in the instalment of the alternative voting system following the election.
