Elected Prime Minister

Sir Paul McKenna

The 2016 National Election was an election in the Empire of Adammia which elected the Prime Minister for the August 2016 - July 2017 term. Moderate Party candidate Emperor Mother Jayne Belcher sought re-election to a fourth term, and was being challenged by Labour Party candidate Sir Paul McKenna, much like the previous year's election. The Liberal Party was not able to field any candidates since none of its members met the requirements to become Prime Minister. Emperor Adam I called the election on 4 June 2016 and it was scheduled to take place on Saturday 13 August 2016.

Results were declared by sub-division as they came in, with a standard deadline of the end of Sunday 14 August. At the time this deadline was reached, the two candidates were tied with 11 votes each, and both El Grandens and Kappania had not yet declared. The Office of State decided to extend the deadline until the State Opening of Council on 20 August, and that the first of the two colonies to declare in that time would decide the election. Kappania declared on 18 August in favour of Paul McKenna, meaning that he was elected as Adammia's second Prime Minister. A total of 23 votes were cast, giving a turnout of 92.0%.
