Benjamin Pickles
Nonpartisan

The 2017 Benjastanian presidential election was held by the Congress of the Democratic Kingdom of Benjastan to appoint the first President of the Democratic Republic of Benjastan. Pickles, in Germany at the time, sent a video message to the Congress, requesting that the nation be reformed into a Republic and that he become the first President, and the motion was passed.

Background

The Democratic Kingdom of Benjastan was founded on 16 October 2017 by Benjamin Pickles, who was crowned King of Benjastan. He served in that capacity for two months. Pickles grew bored of being King, and Pickles, in Germany at the time, sent a video message[1] to the Congress, requesting that the nation be reformed into a Republic and that he become the first President, and the motion was passed. Pickles took office on 30 January 2017.
