Campaign

Parker I of Secundomia made a campaign alliance with Spencer I of Secundomia. This alliance was forged due to the inability to pass legislation through the two-president system. The aim of the alliance was to take power in January in order to create a new constitutional system in favor of a singular president. A cornerstone of the campaign was strong national defense in order to strengthen the nation of Secundomia both locally and intermicronationally. The alliance was announced on January 22nd, 2010 with the following campaign ad:

VOTE PARKER I AND SPENCER I!

The BEST way to vote!

(Remember, keep your campaigns clean, no vicious remarks about the other side. Thank you.)

What will we change? We will make Secundomia a better place. Strengthen it's borders and appoint a secretary of defense.

Vote for both of us and a better Secundomia!

—Parker I

Luke of Secundomia opposed both members of this campaign, claiming betrayal. He launched an attack ad claiming that the former Co-Consuls had no authority to create the constitution, that they threatened freedom of speech that Spencer had a lack of experience.

Result

Spencer I won the initial elections, however Parker and Luke remained tied. Spencer, therefore, assumed presidency on February 1st, 2010, while the other spot remained vacant during a runoff. Luke of Secundomia criticized the results, claiming that the power of Spencer's voting block was insurmountable, which Parker initially denied, but agreed with later. The runoff elections determined Parker as the victor.
