Grand Unified Micronational election, June 2020
The Charter of the GUM provides that "The Chair shall be elected every six months". Pursuant to this, the Chair is, by norm rather than specific policy, required to announce the opening of nominations within a reasonable time before the six-month period is up. The election was announced by the Chair Thomas I of Hrafnarfjall on 6 June, with the election timetable.
Any delegate to the GUM from a full member state may nominate themselves to run for the Chairmanship, provided they are not "already running for another post within the organization, such as the Supreme Court or another bureaucratic agency within the GUM". They may, however, "if they have been nominated to one of these offices... decline and be considered eligible to run for the post of Chair".
