*Retained status means the candidate may have lost the majority of the vote but was able to form a coalition or minority government to continue their leadership. Alternatively they may have won a slight majority but been unable to form or reform a coalition to continue leading. TBD status means the candidate retains their leadership while the outcome of the election has yet to be resolved. Elected status may include candidates who did not achieve a majority of the vote but were subsequently appointed or designated their leadership role by a group of representatives e.g. Electoral College or Senate. Elected status generally indicates this was the first time a candidate was elected based on the results of a public vote (e.g. general election), with Re-elected status applying to those who have contested more than one public vote-based election.
