Giovannilandian Elections Coming Soon

GIOVANNISTADT, 27th November 1420 – National and regional elections in Giovanniland will start in the next month. Several important positions are elected every four years, such as Prime Minister, the head of government, as well as Governors for all 33 provinces and Mayors for cities. The campaigning period will start in 16th December, when candidates will be allowed to stage campaign rallies in cities and show advertisements for their campaigns in TVs, radios, social media, and other communication vehicles. Then, voters will cast their votes one month after, in 16th January. Three electoral debates will take place throughout the election campaign as well, and many spectators are eager to see those debates.

The current Prime Minister, Amore Gil Albrecht, has stated her intent to run for re-election. It is expected that her campaign will be supported by both the Green Social Party and the Giovannilandian Communist Party, members of the ruling coalition with supermajority in the Senate and the Chamber of Deputies. The opposition coalition–composed by the Republican Giovanniland Party, the Democratic Coalition and the Patriot Party–has announced the right-wing candidate Álvaro Uryth Lavanda as the opposition's Prime Minister candidate. Lauro de Abreu-Floryn from the Theocratic Violetist Party is also running for the coveted position after two successful terms as the main Senator in his party, even though no other party expressed their support for his candidacy. All three candidates are expected to debate solutions for pressing issues in the West Pacific, such as the ongoing Zoranian Civil War.

This is it for today, but be sure to tune in later for more news on elections and other important happenings in Giovanniland!

Election News: Campaign Period Started!

GIOVANNISTADT, 19th December 1420 – The campaign period for national and regional elections in Giovanniland has officially started three days ago, on 16th December. That day, candidates were finally allowed to stage campaign rallies and show advertisements in several communication vehicles–and many promptly did. Electoral debates will take place throughout the campaign period as you might know, with the first one happening December 26th! The campaign will then slow down for New Year, after which the two remaining debates and the proper election day will happen January. 

The three candidates for Prime Minister are shown below. (OOC note: images generated with the site thispersondoesnotexist.com)

 Name:  Amore Gil Albrecht (incumbent) Álvaro Uryth Lavanda Lauro de Abreu-Floryn
Party: Green Social Party Republican Giovanniland Party Theocratic Violetist Party
Allied Parties:  Giovannilandian Communist Party   Democratic Coalition, Patriot Party  (none)

In the first of several pre-election polls, Amore Gil has started with a strong 45%, followed by Álvaro Uryth with 21% and finally Lauro de Abreu-Floryn with 8%. Undecided people or those who chose not to reveal their vote make together a staggering 26% of all interviewed people, although this is expected as the campaign period has just started. Votes for each candidate seem to be even for most provinces, although there's a higher concentration of votes for the Theocratic Violetists in the northern provinces, where the percentage of people following Violetism is higher, and more votes for the incumbent PM in all four Special Cities except for Urythburg in the north.

Other key elections have also been debated throughout the country, for example the elections for Giovannistadt mayor, where the incumbent Roberto Elysthin from the Communist Party faces off Patriot Party candidate Helena Zhaoqian. Another interesting election is the one for governor of Edristania, a northern region that has been hit by several floods recently–many people think the incumbent from the Republican Giovanniland Party, Clóvis Ivanov, has failed to properly deal with those floods. Therefore, many people are considering to vote for the opposition candidate Manuel Garavand from the Theocratic Violetist Party.

This is it for today. Check again later for more news on elections and other important events happening in Giovanniland!
