Commissioner for Domestic Affairs
The 1st Greater Cyngland Commissioner for Domestic Affairs election was held from Sunday, July 5th to Friday, July 10th 2020.
This was the first election held in the history of Greater Cyngland.
There were four candidates in this election:
The candidates campaigned hard, releasing dispatches describing their vision for the region.
Without a regional constitution, fundamental issues about the character of the region were brought up, such as whether or not communist nations should be allowed in the region, who should have the right to vote,
Controversy quickly arose between Herzgveinia and Dictatorya, with Herzgveinia accusing Dictatorya of plotting to destroy his puppet, Bonertia, and rig the election in his favor.
Later on, a spammer would join the region and was swiftly banned, and an investigation found that the spammer in question was actually a puppet of Herzgveinia.
He denied this allegation but announced that he was leaving the region while the ballots were open. It was impossible to remove him from the ballot, but government officials encouraged Herzgveina voters to recast their vote for another candidate.
Soon after the polls opened, it was clear that this was a two-man race between Abbeyverne and Tyrrhena.
Grand Empire of Prussia hosted the first election debate in the history of Greater Cyngland on July 7th.
Tyrrhena won, becoming the first Commissioner for Domestic Affairs in the history of Greater Cyngland.
Tyrrhena received 50% of the total vote.
Abbeyverne came in second, with 33% of the vote.
Dictatorya came in third, with 11% of the vote.
Despite dropping out of the race, Herzgveinia still received 6% of the vote.
Here is a breakdown of the various election Demographics:
WA Members (33%): 50% Tyrrhena, 33% Abbeyverne, 17% Dictatorya.

The 3rd Greater Cyngland Commissioner for Domestic Affairs election was held from Saturday, December 5th to Thursday, December 10th 2020.
This was the third election held in the history of Greater Cyngland.
There were four candidates in this election:
Campaigning was initially light, but things became heated over the issue of openly communist nations running for office.
Other candidates came to Tartaslavia's defense and in a bizarre twist, the most campaigning appeared to come from a non-candidate. Bernavale's anti-communist dispatches persisted, leading to a heated debate on the nature of communism and the fascistic tendencies of some of the most staunch anti-communists in the region.
Abbeyverne joined the race later on in the process, promising a continuation of the policies from his first term. The former CDA remained popular, and arguably had an incumbent's advantage, as he only resigned from the office to serve as World Assembly Delegate.
Abbeyverne won, becoming the third Commissioner of Domestic Affairs in the history of Greater Cyngland.
Abbeyverne received 46% of the total vote.
Norwainia came second, with 42% of the vote.
Michaliav came third, with 8% of the vote.
Tartaslavia came fourth, with 4% of the vote.
This was the first time a candidate won with less than a majority of the vote.
67% of World Assembly members voted for Abbeyverne, however, 53% of non-World Assembly members voted for Norwainia.
Low and medium influence nations voted evenly for both candidates, but 67% of high influence nations voted for Abbeyverne.
Nations with less than 1 billion population voted evenly for both candidates, but 67% of nations with over 1 billion populations voted for Abbeyverne.
The result of the election proved controversial. Norwainia maintained a solid lead for most of the duration of the election, but Abbeyverne surged late in the race, winning by a single vote.
Norwainia, Tartaslavia, and their supporters claimed fraud. Several requests were made to Cyng to discard the results, claiming that Abbeyverne broke the rules of the election by voting for himself. However, no such rule exists. Some have claimed that Abbeyverne won by using puppet nations to vote for himself, but these claims have not been verified.
Unhappiness over the result caused Norwainia and several of his supporters to move to Sardovia, a communist-friendly splinter region of Greater Cyngland.
26 voters participated in this election, with a turnout rate of approximately 26%.
