Update: 8/10/2022 – The election results are currently unclear following Saspearian’s removal from the MA Council and ban from the Micronational Assembly.
The MA Council Election of August 2022 is a General Election to select the August 2022 MA Council. The election has 9 candidates (following the concession of Norcross), which makes it heavily contested as, according to the general election procedure, the 5 candidates with the most votes win. On July 13, the Newla Republic withdrew its candidacy from the election due to inactivity. On August 3, Nocross conceded from the election due to them deeming the possibility of being elected not to be possible.

|Great Lawl Reich*||6 (31.6%)|
|Jewel Republic||9 (47.4%)|
|Grand Kingdom of Ameristan||13 (68.4%)|
