Nominations and Miscellaneous

Nominations opened 15 July 2018, and closed 22 July. Voting opened 24 July, and closed 1 August. These elections are notable for the peculiarity of joint ticket use, which occurred in two of the elections. Kanoria, Cresium, Ramelia, Courelli, Koiho, Myledia, and Freeland Newworldia were nominated for Minister of Domestic Affairs; Courelli and Koiho ran, in addition to a joint ticket of Freeland Newworldia and Myledia. Kanoria, Paschimbanga, Plzen, Koiho, Castillecrest, Ramelia, Goncar, Brys Questions, and Omerica were nominated for Minister of Foreign Affairs; Goncar, Brys Questions, and Omerica ran. Omerica, Koiho, Ramelia, Helvurium, Koiho, and Chameliya were nominated for Minister of Immigration; Helvurium ran and Koiho and Chameliya ran on a joint ticket. Joint ticket candidates could not appear as such on the ballot per Social Liberal Union laws, which may have stopped the repetition of the practice (it has not been seen again as of April 2019).[1]

Many candidates issued platforms in these elections: Courelli for Minister of Domestic Affairs[2], Freeland Newworldia/Myledia (jointly) for Minister of Domestic Affairs[3], Goncar for Minister of Foreign Affairs[4], Brys Questions for Minister of Foreign Affairs[5], Harndon/Chameliya (jointly) for Minister of Immigration[6], and Helvurium for Minister of Immigration[7].

Note that discrepancies in vote totals may exist (and candidates not elected are not displayed) as a result of ballot redistribution. For this reason, percentages are not displayed.
