Azerothean General Election

Amanda Dean

The results of the primary elections are in. In an unsurprising landslide victory, Thrall was confirmed as leader of the Horde faction by capturing 69.7% of the vote. The bitter race on Alliance side led to a down-to-the-wire victory for Dwarven King Magni Bronzebeard who pulled in 24.9% of the vote. A distraught High Priestess Tyrande Whisperwind, who received 24.5% was denied a recount in the Wetlands. It is time for the final election for Supreme Leader of Azeroth.

Here are your candidates for the Supreme Leader of all of Azeroth:

Warchief Thrall(H: Orgrimar)- Thrall hopes that his political momentum will keep up through the general election. Thrall promises to consider the needs of all races in Azeroth in his official decisions. His primary goal is to unite the civilized people in hopes that someday there will be peace across the lands. Other Planks in Thrall's platform include balance, buffs for Shaman, and strong foreign relations with the sovereign people of Outland. The Warchief's bid for Leadership in Azeroth has been officially endorsed by Rexxar and High Chieftan Cairne Bloodhoof.

King Magni Bronzebeard (A: Ironforge)- Bronzebeard, fatigued from a difficult primary season, remains the family values candidate. He is in favor of exploring Azeroth and would prefer to relations with Outland to a minimum. Bronzebeard has been recently quoted as saying "Feel the fury of the mountain!" The king's promise to recover Gnomeregan has won his campaign the support of High Tinker Gelbin Mekkatorque.

Lady Jaina Proudmoore (I: Theramore)- This powerful sorceress has recently announced her independent candidacy for Leader of Azeroth due to the astounding amount of support she received as a write-in candidate in the Alliance faction race. Proudmoore has shown remarkable leadership skills in the foundation of Theramore, and is one of the last surviving heirs to the founders of the Alliance. Former Alliance candidates Highlord Bolvar Fordragon and High Priestess Tyrande Whisperwind have pledged their support for the Proudmoore Campaign.

Tensions are high between Proudmoore and Thrall.* Though once close friends, Jaina and Thrall have fought bitterly over some of their key political issues. All three candidates have promised to make it a clean race. The polls will be open until March 31, 2008. The Supreme Leader of Azeroth will be announced on April 1.
