The other candidates for the office, Grand Duke Martin of the North Antarctic Peninsular Islands and Jefferson Kloepfler, Vice Secretary-General in times of the Daniel Morris administration, got respectively 11,11% and 22,22% of the votes.

The result for the election of Vice Secretary-General is: Alexander Eastwood (Atlantis): 77,78% and Jefferson Kloepfler from Akull with 22,22% of the votes.

King Tom I of the Kingdom of Falghun was already appointed as Chief of the Antarctic Micronational Environmental Agency and Daniel Morris was already appointed Commissioner of Internal Affairs and Culture.

The positions left, that of Commissioner of Foreign Affairs and New Members, Commissioner of Justice and Defence, and the position of Chief of the Antarctic Micronational Intelligence Service are still open. These positions will be filled by the new Secretary-General and his Vice.

The changes will take effect on July, 8, 2012 at 00:00 CET. The aim is to fill the remaining positions within a week.

AMU elections started

The elections for the AMU Commission started today. All full members can cast their vote on the AMU forum, http://www.amu.forumcommunity.net. The former Secretary-General, Prince Maarten van Arkel, sent a newsletter on the election procedure to each full member.

Because of a lack of candidatures to several positions in the Commission, the former S-G proposed the following on the forum:

The positions for which candidatures were casted (Foreign Affairs, Justice and Defence, Internal Affairs and Chief of AMEA) are now being filled in by the only candidate available, under the condition these candidates are not voted in as (Vice) Secretary-General.

If the positions remain empty, the new Secretary-General can (in collaboration with his Vice) candidate other people. The SG and VSG will propose a motion in the Voting Chamber on this candidates, which must be admitted with 50%+1. The SG and VSG will start their term July 8, the new candidates can join later.

Only two people are convinced of their victory, King Tom I as Chief of AMEA and Daniel Morris as Commissioner of Internal Affairs and Culture.

The Antarctic Micronational Union can welcome King Tom I of the Kingdom of Falghun as Chief of the Antarctic Micronational Environmental Agency and Daniel Morris of the Union of Draegan Micronations (Dorzhabad) as Commissioner of Internal Affairs and Culture. He decided to cast his candidature after his resignation as Secretary-General a week ago, since he wanted to stay active in the Antarctic community.

The new Commission shall be ‘sworn in’ on July 8.

Secretary-General Morris resigned from office

The Secretary-General of the Antarctic Micronational Union has resigned.

AMU appeared on Russian news site

The Antarctic Micronational Union was part of an article written on the website of the Chatsny Korrespondent (Частный Корреспондент), which is the first Russian online newspaper for free.

According to the Foreign Commissioner, who knows someone able to speak Russian, is it about the conflict between Rhosedia and Finismund, and further about the foundation of the Antarctic micronational Union. They say that on Antarctica micronations form a organisation to manage territorial issues, and than they compare it with the claims of Russia on Antarctica. They also made a summery about all AMU-members in 2010 and their claims.

The article was published in 2010.
