Jayden Lycon

Lycon had been appointed as chairman on 15 January by his predecessor William Efton. He had previously chaired the alliance during its short-lived 2019 incarnation.

Despite initial controversies such as the 69 Hour Session, Lycon's tenure proved to be incredibly fruitful for the alliance, with several important articles of legislation drafted forming the foundation of the alliance.[2]

Sertor Valentinus

Sertor Valentinus came into the fold of the alliance after the admission of the Kingdom of Pinelandia in April.[3]

Valentinus had been relatively involved with alliance politics, having proposed a public affairs committee, and holding the newly created European and African Affairs ministry.[2]

Voting

The election was held in the discord server of the Cupertino Alliance, using the first-past-the-post system as per Article 27 of the Charter.[4]
