General elections to elect the Presidency of Juclandia and the Council of State will be held in Juclandia on 5 August 2018, with a second round, if necessary, tentatively scheduled for 12 August 2018.

Electoral system

The President and the Vice President of the Council of State are elected on the same ticket, using a two-round system. Nominations are individual rather than party-based. It is thus possible for a party to file several candidates if it cannot agree on a common one. This was the case in the 2014 and 2016 elections, when the United Revolutionary Front filed several candidates.

The Council of State is elected using the first-past-the-post system in 12 single-member constituencies. As the constituencies are shaped along the 12 co-operatives of Juclandia, the constituencies are usually considered to be safe seats for one party or another.

Candidates

  • Incumbent President Ovia Bogi is eligible to stand for re-election. On 22 February 2018, she publicly announced that she will run along with her Vice President. Bogi mentioned that these will be the last presidential elections in which she will run, if elected.[2]
  • Koala Jucărescu was nominated by the United Revolutionary Front on 20 May 2018, along with her FRD running mate, Ursache Libereanu.[3]
