Twelve of the fifty presidents elected yesterday have received a vote of confidence from their electorate, being chosen for a consecutive mandate (presidents marked with “*”). Citizens from the United States have also confirmed scrabman
as President, who was put in charge of the highest office after the impeachment of former President Uncle Sam. Croatia's first president Roby Petric was elected again, after comfortably winning the third presidential elections in the country's history. This is Roby Petric's fourth presidential mandate, as he was also also elected twice as President of the United States.

Yesterday's most voted candidate was the new Hungarian President Feherlofia Koppany, who is also the youngest president elected this month. He received 1368 votes, followed by the Romanian President dani36 and scrabman. The highest number of votes were recorded in Romania, where 2770 citizens made use of their right to vote.

There were tight presidential races in Pakistan and Argentina, the winners being elected with a difference of one, respectively two votes. The presidents of Finland, South Africa, Spain, and Mexico were also narrow winners, receiving only five votes more than their contenders. Dishmcds will face a new challenge as the president of Mexico, after previously leading the United States and United Kingdom.

We would like to congratulate all the newly elected Presidents and wish them good luck in the following month.
