The 2016 Idealist Party leadership election was the first leadership election of the Idealist Party of Pavlov and took place between November 17 and November 18, 2016. The election was triggered following demands by Sir Pavle Savovic KOSA for the selection of a new party chairman. The eliection was contested between Sir Shady Morsi KCS and Sir Pavle Savovic KOSA. Baron Hasan Tradthar-i-falur, the incumbent chairman, declined to stand as a candidate for election.
Neither candidate managed to attain the majority of votes to allow them to gain a mandate to take control of the party. Instead, a protest vote option attained the majority of votes in election, beating both candidates with 53% of the vote. Following the announcement of the surprising result, Baron Hasan Tradthar-i-falur retained the chairmanship to prevent potential instability caused by the result.
