Today, the 1st General Election of the Norfolk Empire came to an end with the final day of voting, which was yesterday, 8 July 2019. This means that today is the day that all winners of each election were be announced and the seating chart for the House of Commons was released. The first of those things to be released were the winners of each election. For the Office of the Prime Minister, the obvious winner is HRM Duchess Dorothy Norfolk I of the Duchy of Bitty Ridge. She won by a landslide with 85.7% of the votes in the Norfolk Empire against Tamcoopese President Tammy Norfolk, who only received 14.3% of the votes. HRM Duchess Dorothy Norfolk I, who will soon be considered HRM Prime Minister Duchess Dorothy Norfolk I, is very excited to work in the Office of the Prime Minister. She says that she will most likely not run again, but she will work as hard as possible to serve her country during the two-month term. HRH Prince Cooper Norfolk I created a pie chart of the votes in the election for Prime Minister.

In the House of Commons, all three seats have been filled with the same party, the Green-Republican Party. Some worry that the House of Commons being filled with the same party could cause some problems, such as being able to block or pass laws with more than all of the votes and be able to pass it on to the Prime Minister, a Green-Republican, to be automatically approved. Many citizens are dismissing problems like that because they believe that each Member of Parliament, MP, has their own views and is on a different place on the political spectrum. The MP of the 1st District of New Tenochtitlan is HRH Prince Cooper Norfolk I with 66.7% of the votes, the MP of the 1st District of Dellfolk is HRM Duke Roger Bluetoski I with 100% of the votes, and the MP of the 1st Distirct of Bitty Ridge is HRM Duchess Dorothy Norfolk I. The House of Commons also released its official seating chart today.

None of the offices have been officialy sworn in yet, as that will occur on 18 July 2019, but they are all very excited to work.
