Chancellor before election

Gus Rósínśtí

Elected Chancellor


The March 2021 Benjastanian legislative election will take place on 20 March 2021, to elect members of the Chamber of Deputies. This election will be the first in Benjastan since the September 2020 congressional election, and follows a series of constitutional amendments which drastically reformed the Government of the Democratic Republic of Benjastan.

The incumbent party, the Picklista National Liberation Front, is widely seen as the successor to both major left-wing parties, the Party for Socialism and Liberty, and the Reason Party. The party is led at the legislative level by Gus Rósínśtí, who took office as Chancellor following the second constitutional reform, as it succeeded his previous office of First Secretary.

Presently, the only other party is Patrioto, a right-wing populist party, which was refounded following the second constitutional reform. The party is led by Raphaël Olivier, a member of the Chamber of Deputies and the Governor of Birsland, who is a right-wing politician in many micronations.
