Elected President

Sabina Škupovna
Luepolan Workers' Party

The 2021 Luepolan presidential election was held on 7 and 25 April 2021. Since no candidate won a majority, a run-off election was held between incumbent president and leading candidate Savo Grigorević of the Republican Party and runner-up Sabina Škupovna of the Workers Party, in which Škupovna overtook Grigorević to win the election.

Results

The first round of the election was won by incumbent Savo Grigorević. Having failed to secure a majority vote, however, he must compete in the second round against runner-up candidate Sabina Škupovna. Trailing candidates Danilo Valdez, Bruno Vălković, Ivica Morić, and Stanko Stanković were eliminated from the running.

The second round of the election was won by Škupovna, largely due to efforts by Valdez to rally his progressive voterbase to support Škupovna in the run-off, and to the lack of similar effort by centrist candidate Vălković in support of Grigorević. Grigorević conceded the election to Škupovna at 22:31 of 25 April.
