WHAT IS THIS ALL ABOUT?
Lostisland is a direct democracy. We don’t have a specific legislature: all Lostislandic citizens above 18 are members of the imaginary “parliament”. However — like other parliamentary republics — we elect our Prime Minister by a parliamentary vote. As a result of these two factors, the Prime Minister of Lostisland is elected on a universal voting of all eligible citizens.
The Federal Prime Minister shall be elected for a term of four years by citizens of the Federal Republic of Lostisland on the basis of universal equal and direct suffrage by secret ballot.Constitution of the Federal Republic of Lostisland
WHO CAN RUN FOR PRIME MINISTER?
According to Article LVI of the Constitution, any citizen of the Federal Republic of Lostisland not younger than 18 years of age may be elected Federal Prime Minister. Because the Prime Minister is not an appointed position, unlike with ordinary Ministers or Ambassadors, there is no ban on holding other micronational citizenships. There is also no limit on the number of terms for the Prime Minister: we trust our citizens to make the right choice.
HOW DO I SUBMIT MY CANDIDACY?
HOW DO I VOTE?
Lostislandic elections are strictly online-only: in a nation scattered all over the world, there is no way to organize physical polling stations. Each citizen will receive their credentials for voting by email or SMS. We will provide more detailed instructions as the election day approaches.
There is no such thing as “register to vote” in Lostisland: if you are a Lostislandic citizen, your email is already in our electronic database.
