The 2013 Election was the first formal election of the Liberoli Republic. Voting started on the 1st of July and finished at 23:59 on the 7th. The law stated that the leader of the party with the most votes by the end of the 7th of July 2013, assuming they are an MP, will be declared the new President on the 8th of the month.
- Ae Daily - Party for Unending Freedom
- David Mycroft White - Atheistic Secular Society Party
- Woroar Niloar - Liberal Socialist Party
All parties took to Twitter to try to influence citizens to vote for them. At times, debates became quite heated with certain candidates labeling others as Nazis.
- Woroar Niloar (LibSoc) - 2 (+1 Deciding Vote)
- Ae Daily (PUF) - 2
- David Mycroft White (ASS) - 0
As the result was tied, the current President, Woroar Niloar, had the responsibility of choosing the winner and chose himself.
David White lost his seat as he didn't gain any votes, however, he immediately reapplied and a majority of Liberoar citizens voted to allow him to be reinstated into Parliament.
4 out of the 5 eligible Liberoar citizens voted giving an 80% turnout in the polls.
Effect on future elections
Members of Parliament decided that a week was too long for the election to take place, especially as the country has only 5 citizens. The law was since changed to having the election on just the first of July with results revealed the following day.
