ELECTION DAY SPECIAL REPORT Early voter turn out for the today’s elections has been light. The polls have been open since 0700 hours and only 10% of the registered voters have cast their ballots.
The leader of the Laudeans is their Premier or Prime-Minister. He is the leader of the ruling political party (party with the most seats in the Laudean Parliament), and 246 seats out of 501 in parliament are needed for a party to have a majority and form a government. Parties may form coalitions after elections so as to form the government.*
Here is a rundown on the planet-wide vote so far this Election Day:
- Paetra Zrong representing the Popularist Party - 5225 votes
- Zeon Zrong representing the Neo-Modernist Party - 3243 votes
- Ahishma Chandra representing the Naturalists - 1276 vote
- Oluwa Dela OKande representing the Royalists - 1164
- Benu Hashiwa representing the Traditionalists - 1125
Keep in mind that these figures represent only 10% of Devi, Govinda and Damodara Provinces, and only 8% of the Provinces of Manar, Rania, Tanal and Bryque.
Lokesh Island reports 12% of registered voters with Paetra Zrong in the lead.
According to the Duronis II/Til'ahn Wiki, in the last election, Zeon Zrong’s Neo-Modernist party won a majority by attracting votes from the masses, also attracting supporters away from Royalist and Traditionalists trends.
With Zeon’s brother Paetra Zrong having broken away from the Neo-Modernist party and founded the Popularist party for the masses, Zeon Zrong’s Neo-Modernist party is strongly weaken. Early exit polls indicate that Zeon Zrong has also lost his right wing support back to the Royalists and Traditionalists.*
The Lokesh City Free Press urges all voters to go to the polls and let your voice be heard.
