Elected Chancellor

Anaaxes

Nominations and campaigning opened 11 May 2018 and concluded 17 May. Anaaxes, Brys Questions, Castillecrest, Helvurium, New Lettia, and Kanoria were nominated, and the first four decided to run for the vacant seat New Lettia had held before a period of inactivity culminating in the Resolution On the Dismissal of New Lettia from the Government of the Social Liberal Union. Anaaxes[1] and Brys Questions[2] created platforms. Voting lasted from 19 May 2018 to 26 May, with Anaaxes garnering a majority of votes—13 to Helvurium's 3, Castillecrest's 2 and Brys Questions' 1 of 19 valid ballots cast—and being elected Chancellor.[3][4]
