Geneva, Alexandria; ABCC News – Polls opened earlier today for the second election for the newly created executive position of First Consul of the Empire. The election aims to replace retiring incumbent Jose Frias, who won last election through the Electoral College vote count despite losing the popular vote. The election currently has Jean Carmicheal, leader of the Amelioration Party; Juan Ciervo, leader of the Conservative Party; and independent Frederique Lacoste.
With a three way race and a lower than expected census count, it is hard to predict who will be the clear winner. Last parliamentary election, the Conservatives made considerable gains in Parliament, with the Progressives losing a seat and the Amelioration Party losing a seat as well. Polls close on Wednesday.
