Chancellor before election


Elected Chancellor


Nominations for Chancellor opened on 26 September 2020 and closed on 10 October 2020. Speaker Jyskmark served as Election Administrator. Courelli nominated Ramelia on 26 September, which they accepted the same day. As only one candidate emerged, an approval election was held to either approve or reject the sole nominee. Voting lasted from 12 October to 19 October 2020. Ramelia won the election after gaining more approval than rejection votes, which was verified by Independent Vote Verifier Goncar. Ramelia assumed office as the seventh Chancellor of the Social Liberal Union on 19 October 2020.[1]
