Federal parties withdraw endorsements in
Alexander First Minister race
By Horatio Eden, political editor and Alexander correspondent
The United Rhinoceros Party and National Federalist Party have withdrawn their endorsements for
candidates in the Alexander state First Minister race.
The election for First Minister will be held on the 7th of January next year, and will pit incumbent Alexander von
Hapsburg of the National Federalists against insurgent candidate Edward Daniels of the United Rhinoceros Party.
However, Alexander state law makes political parties illegal within the state, and, following a request from the
state government, both parties withdrew their endorsements of their respective candidates.
The election is the first in Alexandrian history; up until this point, all First Ministers have been appointed by the
Grand Duke of the state. Benjamin Norris was the inaugural holder of the post, appointed by Grand Duke Michael
Thomas Brazeau. Following Grand Duke Michael’s resignation from the post, Grand Duke Max I appointed
Alexander von Hapsburg to the position.
Mr. von Hapsburg is now attempting to win re-election to his position in his own right.
Edward Daniels, on his MicroWiki page, that his campaign is primarily focussed on establishing a “state
constitution”. Meanwhile, the von Hapsburg campaign, in an interview with the Abeldane Telegraph, emphasised
their candidate’s plan to “carve out Alexander a greater name in the Abeldane Empire”.
A full transcript of our interview with First Minister von Hapsburg can be viewed here.
Electors go to the polls on the 7th of January, 2018. No polling organisations have entered Alexander at press
time, though the Abeldane Telegraph will be attempting to perform a poll of the citizenry within the coming days.
