The election for the first trimester of 2013 represented an unusual, and surprising, turn in the politics of the Executive Branch and in the Triumvirate. This election leading into 2013 represented a significant defeat for the Progressive Party as they lost the office of Major Executive and lost one of the two top seats in the Administrative Branch.
The election for Major Executive was the most surprising election in this election cycle, as it involved the incumbent Major Executive, Stavrok, a member of the Progressive Party, being defeated by a relatively inexperienced and new Executive, Administrative Liaison Elliot Neil, a member of the Establishment Party. Originally Stavrok ran with Andrew Hester as running mates, and they saw no opposition to their campaign until the time it finally came to vote for the Major Executive in which both Elliot Neil and Mitar Curesse, also a member of the Progressive Party (which demonstrated the political disarray within the Progressive Party), challenged him for the office. A tie became a very likely scenario which would have sent the election to the Administrative Branch (which as it was controlled primarily by the Establishment Party at the time, would likely have voted for Elliot Neil), but Brady Becker, also a Progressive, cast a vote in favor of Neil, an unusual and unexpected occurence, further demonstrating the fracturing of the Progressive Party at this time. Elliot Neil was elected with five votes, to become the first female and the youngest Major Executive in the history of the Triumvirate.
As for Minor Executive, the sitting Minor, Ehtya, had made it clear he did not want to seek another trimester as Minor Executive. Andrew Hester ran for the position and did win a resounding victory despite his running mate's loss, only battling against Mitar Curesse for the position. By a seven to three vote, Andrew Hester was elected.
The Administrative Branch election was simple and clean, in keeping with an agreement from the previous trimester, Andrew Mearl was reelected as Speaker and his brother, Jackson Mearl, was elected as Deputy Speaker. The Administrative Branch lost two members from the previous trimester and as such was down to five for the duration of the first trimester of 2013.
