Prince Rana Bahadur of Kishur was the last ruler to arrive in the capital

Journalists from across the globe have gathered at the Neele Mahal as the country awaits the election of a new emperor. Following the death of Kerala Varma IX last month, the rulers of each of the nation's numerous diverse territories have convened to begin deliberations on who will succeed the controversial conservative Emperor. Under Kerala Varma, the rules for selecting the Emperor were changed for the first time in centuries due to immense pressure from regional leaders over the perceived dominance of the three most influential territories: Rajutta, Bhapore and Zaqram. Although the exact procedures are not known to the general public, it is understood that they enabled the three regions to ensure their chosen candidates even when faced with opposition from the remaining electors.

Nonetheless the new rules, which the late Emperor only agreed to implement after protests threatened to bring down his regime, grant each territory the same power in the clandestine election and have led to uncertainty about who will emerge from the palace as the new Emperor. Traditionally, the election of the Prince of Zaqram would follow the rule of a Rajutti Emperor however it is unlikely that many of the other territories will support this proposal in light of their struggle to convince the more influential regions to reform their institutions. Employing a certain degree of Bashnyology, experts have suggested that Prince Rana Bahadur of Kishur could be the front runner, due to his late arrival in the capital.

According to the historic rules which govern the Emperor's election, the rulers will spend the next three weeks inside the the Neele Mahal takings soundings, listening to speeches from candidates and holding secret ballots until there is unanimous approval for a candidate. If this is not achieved within the given period then the leaders can request a further week to reach a decision. In the meantime, the global media will no doubt spend many hours speculating on the identity of the next ruler of Kalkalistan.
