In a three-horse race for President this election, Xernon was once again elected President of Thaecia, their 4th term in the position. In the race with Xernon were two Senators from the last term, Snowflame and Fishergate. President Xernon reached the quota in the first round with 53 votes with Snowflame winning 35 votes and Fishergate taking only 9 votes in the first round. The President's next job will be to take the Delegacy, which we hope runs smoothly.
In a non-surprising result, incumbent candidate Korsinia was re-elected as Prime Minister, winning 61 first-round votes. Kors had the backing of many prominent Thaecians, including former-President Titanne and the new President Xernon. The nations running against Kors were me, Pap Sculgief and Indian Genius. With Kors now looking to select a cabinet, it was announced that the Education Minster and the Foreign Affairs Minister have already been selected, and nations can apply for the Interior, Culture or Justice Ministries. Kors looks set for a successful 4 months in charge.
The waves of independents that Thaecia has seen over the last few months hasn't affected the Senate this election, with only one Independent Senator in the chamber. The rest of the Senate is made up of 2 seats for the TPU and TFP, and one seat for Solidarity and LPT. With this, comes a lot of potential for a coalition between parties, which would have a significant effect on the future of the chamber.
While the Senate looks set for a party-coalition, the House of Commons on the other hand, is swarmed with independents, as only three seats were won by a party. Many notable independents include former-EC Rhyssua and incumbent Zanaana. With the chamber not dominated by party politics, it should be an interesting term for the HoC and the MPs.
Thaecia has it's own podcast now, and it looks set to stay. The first episode, discussing the election, appeared very popular among citizens, and brought an extra layer to Thaecian culture. The first episode included Senator Andusre, Electoral Commissioner Dizgovzy, ex-MP The Marconian State, member of the EC Hulldom, United Cascadian Peoples and Senator Islonia. The topic was the recent elections and all forms of government were discussed. They also discussed predictions for the cabinet and potential significant topics for the coming term. With commentary and questions going on as well, it seems that Thaecast will be a regular fixture in Thaecia.
