AMERION ELECTED DELEGATE; WINS 62% OF THE GAMESIDE VOTE
Election Commissioner Tsunamy certified on July 18 that, with 150 votes cast, Amerion has captured 62% of the gameside vote and has been elected Delegate of the South Pacific.
Amerion, who consistently led Penguin throughout the vote, ran on a graphics-heavy platform of supporting existing projects, including the fledging Office of World Assembly Legislation (OWL), and attempting to bridge the gap between the gameside and offsite communities. The campaign was enthusiastically supported by various South Pacificans who embraced Amerion's self-assigned title of "Supreme Leader" and their most recent self-reference as "Auphelia-lite".
Penguin, who congratulated Amerion shortly after the certification of the election results, ran a more austere campaign and focused on their qualifications for the delegacy, rather than on pursuing specific projects or policies, though they still maintained an active presence on the Regional Message Board (RMB) and engaged with citizens throughout the elections.
Amerion is now expected to continue obtaining endorsements. Until the official transfer of power takes place, regional law dictates that Somyrion will continue serving as Delegate.
