Governor-General ElectionsEdit

Prior to each election, the party nominated its lead candidate for Governor-General. Although the candidate, in theory, could be any member of the NDU, both Elena Weiß and Regīna Mekkuru were nominated despite both being Secretary-General of the party - both stood down from their party positions upon being elected Governor-General.

Presidential ElectionsEdit

Following the NDU’s recreation in 4615, elections for the position of head of state were not held - during this period Hulstria and Gao-Soto was governed by a semi-Constitutional monarchy. Following a series of constitutional reforms introduced by the Keutz government throughout 4615 and 4616, the monarchy was replaced by a federal rupiblic. Elections to the newly-created position of president were first held in 4620. Names in italics indicate a candidate which received the support of the NDU, but who was not an NDU party member.

Leadership HistoryEdit

Listed below is the leadership history of the NDU. According the the party’s founding charter, the positions of Chairperson and Secretary-General are considered equal (albeit with differing powers) - in this sense, holders of these offices could be considered ‘co-leaders’ of the NDU: the Chairperson leads the NDU parliamentary faction while the Secretary-General runs the party’s extra-parliamentary affairs. While the Chairperson is elected by party delegates once every two years, the Secretary-General is appointed by the Chairperson. Years in bold indicate elections where the candidate subsequently served as Head of Government.
