Chair before election

Elected Chair

Daniel Hamilton

Due to the lack of a charter or legislation within the fledgling organisation, the election was conducted on an ad hoc basis. All members states primary delegations served as candidates, though only the Australissian and Babergn candidates received votes.

Background

Two days prior to the election, on 23 October the Constantia Pact was founded as an intermicronational organisation populated by micronations associated with a social group named The Fun Gang. Up until the election, Daniel Hamilton served as the unofficial leader of the organisation through their ownership of both The Fun Gang chatroomm, and the discord server of the Pact.


In order to settle the matter of leadership, a swift ad hoc election was conducted on 25 October. All primary delegates of CONPACT member states were automatically entered into the ballot.[a] The election began and concluded that same day.
