Facing down three competing tickets (Sincluda/Gem, JL/Prov, and Caldrasa/August) with a confident and proactive campaign, UPC/GK secured 68% of the votes on May 25th.

Their main opponent, the Sincluda/Gem ticket which amassed 25% of the vote, ran a lively campaign with initiatives like the Livewire and a World Assembly counter-campaigning taskforce, while wanting to solve problems with the Navy and Foreign Affairs agreements they identified. There were 56 votes cast in total, a relatively low turnout compared to recent Presidential elections.
