The President of the United States of Europe is the head of state and government of the United States of Europe, as well as the commander-in-chief of the military. The post was created in July 2090, due to the formation of the United States of Europe, and the inaugural holder was former French president Lucas Pajot.

Selection process

The selection process is largely based on the American system of electing presidents.

Eligibility

Any candidate for the office of President must met the following criteria

  • Over 30 years of age
  • Citizen of the United States of Europe
  • Been resident of the USE for at least 7 of the last 10 years

Campaigns and nominations

Whilst not legally required, many political parties hold primaries to choose their nominee for the Presidential election. Parties typically announce their nominees between 6 and 8 months of the presidential election.

The nominees of each party then typically spent time campaigning across the country, and several televised debates are held to help voters decide.

The election is typically held in the first week of July. Voting is open to all permanent residents and citizens over the age of 18. The vote is a secret ballot that, apart from online and postal voting, can only be held in official ballot stations.

The president is elected directly, and a candidate must have a majority vote before they can win the election. Should a majority not be reached, a vote is taken in the Senate. The only time this has happened in European history was in the case of the 2134 presidential election, when a majority could not be reached and Senate voted that Marije Gerts, the Socialist candidate would become President.
