The Leftist Assembly election, March 2020
|Voting||11-14 March 2020|
Rhineland Ruhr and Alsace Lorraine,
The Leftist Assembly election, March 2020 was the sixteenth election in The Leftist Assembly and voting was held from 11 to 14 March 2020. The position of Secretary and seven seats in the General Assembly were available for election.
Llorens was elected as Secretary, and Argentigrad, Delphinium Pulchra, Kavagrad, Kongoland, Podria, Rhineland Ruhr and Alsace Lorraine, and Wascoitan were elected to the General Assembly.
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 allied NSLeft region (dual citizen).
For the Secretary election, the single transferable voting (STV) system 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 select up to seven candidates of their preference, equivalent to the available number of seats. The seven candidates that have received the most votes are elected. If there are seven or fewer candidates, they each face a confidence vote instead.
The election moderators were The Final Horseman, South Miruva, and Nottinhaps.
Candidate endorsements are only recorded for nations who have previously served as Secretary or their deputy.
