Following the controversy surrounding Arvin Vohra and his recent comments Libertarians have been looking for a new voice in the vice chairman’s position. That new voice comes from Alex Merced and he has just been elected as the next vice chairman of the Libertarian Party.
With a vote total of 50.6% Alex takes on this new role and will serve under Nick Sarawak for the next 2 years. On the first ballot he took 35% of the vote and on the second ballot he took 44% of the vote. He needed a majority which is why it took multiple ballots.
We will be conducting an interview with the new Vice Chairman soon. Stay tuned!
