6 candidates declared to run for Chief-Executive. This set off a desperate scramble among several candidates to win the chief-executive. A good deal of the excitement of the chief-executival race came from the fact that the candidates had only one hectic day to campaign among the deputies before the voting began. The two leading contenders were Shady Morsi and Jelmer Handgraaf, However an insurgent run by Amin who attacked Handgraaf as a "sellout social democrat", saying that he could not be trusted to protect Worker's interests and accusing the sitting Mayor of affiliating with captialists, Handgraaf belonged to the social democratic faction of the red-greens
Morsi ran as an experienced micronationalist, A micronationalist since 2011 he highlighted his experience in governing micronations, recruting citizens and foreign relations He questioned Handgraaf's necessity of the expanding the nation's government During the campaign period, each presidential candidates published their own roadmap, dubbed as that lists governing plan and proposed policies to be implemented after being elected Chief-Executive. Soon after two debates took place The first debate took place at 14:00 The final debate took place at 19:00.
After the election of Morsi as Chief-Executive, the Vice-Executival Campaign began between, Alan Amin and Bzoo Ipbyy. Ipbyy was endorsed by Morsi but was defeated by Amin
Shady Morsi won the majority to be elected Chief-Executive. president while Amin won the Vice-Executival race.. , This is mainly due to the Red-Green split between two candidates, Had the Red-Greens nominated one candidate then the Red-Greens would won the won the Chief-Executival, (10, 6, 4)
Turnout for the election was 95% with 1 deputy not present. Shady Morsi was inargurated shortly after
Bzoo Ipbyy's surprising 3 points electoral victory and the collapse of Timo Vink's campaign in the presidential elections represents a significant shift in the Oegstgeestian nation's political landscape. In a field of candidates dominated by 2 frontrunners, Ipbyy ran as an anti partisan, decentralized federalist platform. She questioned the necessity of the expanding of the centralization of the government and the constant oversight of the government and civil society associations by the security agencies.
