Today, two citizens of the Norfolk Empire announced their candidacy for the Office of the Prime Minister. The two candidates are both Green-Republicans and women and are expected to be the only candidates who will declare their candidacy for Prime Minister. The first candidate to officially announce her candidacy for Prime Minister was HRM Duchess Dorothy Norfolk I of the Duchy of Bitty Ridge. She announced her candidacy at 06:00 today. Her platform is composting and overall environmentalism. She says that she doesn’t want to focus on economic issues and wants to focus on social and environmental issues. She is also running unopposed for a seat in the House of Commons, so that makes monthly PMQs, when the Prime Minister gets asked questions on the state of the Norfolk Empire, easier.
The second candidate to officially announce her candidacy for Prime Minister is President Tammy Norfolk of the Republic of Tamcoop, who is a part-time citizen of the Norfolk Empire. She was considering the run yesterday and apparently decided to run. She announced her candidacy at 07:00 today. Her platform is environmentalism. She is the President of the Republic of Tamcoop, the micronation the Norfolk Empire is completely surrounded by and partially took over, so some supporters of the Royal Family are worried that she will try to take back the District of New Tenochtitlan, if she wins. But ethnic Tamcoopese citizens of the Norfolk Empire are supporting her efforts to run for the Office of Prime Minister.
Both Candidates rolled out two campaign signs, both in different languages. Tammy Norfolk released a sign in English and Esperanto while HRM Duchess Jonelle Bluetoski I released a sign in English and Spanish.

HRH Duchess Dorothy Norfolk I is most likely to win the election, as about 57% of the micronation has said they will vote for her. President Tammy Norfolk will have to campaign to grow support, even though it is unlikely she will gain support.
