Maximilian Greig

Prime Minister Nominee

Kevon Burnett

The 2024 Monarchist Party premiership election was an internal party vote that decided the nomination for Prime Minister from the Monarchist Party, with Kevon Burnett winning the nomination to become the Prime Minister nominee.

On 19 April 2024, following Maximilian Greig's ascention to the Caretaker Premiership, Kevon Burnett declared his intention to challenge Greig in an internal vote for the nomination of Prime Minister. Later, on 13 May 2024, Burnett officially submitted his candidacy to the Monarchist Party, thereby triggering an internal party vote to be scheduled. On 20 May 2024 it was confirmed by Christina I & II that the vote would be delayed until after the June 2024 general election.

On 9 July it was agreed upon by the Monarchist Party's leadership that Maximilian Greig would not be on the final ballots, thus confirming that he would not remain the Prime Minister.

Debate list

A recording of the First Monarchist Party Premiership debate taken by Christina I & II through her phone.

The Monarchist Party hosted a first debate on 2 June 2024, inviting all three candidates. Only two of the three candidates appeared on the date of the debate due to Burfield having an issue regarding an international flight. During the debate, Maximilian Greig seemed to endorse Kevon Burnett and stated that he was considering dropping out after commenting that Burnett "kind of [leads] better" and calling himself "power hungry". The second debate was scheduled to be held on June 14, however it was delayed due to Christina I & II having fainted and being unreachable.
