The President's seat

The Election is an important event in Kakegurui - Compulsive Gambler. After vacating her seat as president, Kirari Momobami started The Election as a “winner take all struggle” and gamble with the seat as the prize.


After significant disruption from Yumeko Jabami on the existing housepet system, Kirari uses the election to further upset the established order and bring new players into gamble. While some of the existing Student Council members are against the change, several such as Yumemi Yumemite and Midari Ikishima get excited at the prospect. Describing Hyakkaou Private Academy as her aquarium, Kirari notes that unless something is done about Yumeko’s actions, “the disturbance will grow until it may become too much for even us to manage”.

Also at stake with the presidency is the head of The Momobomi Clan. While she was president, Kirari successfully managed to centralize debts and loans of former and current students to amass significant influence over both the business and political establishments making the position coveted. Upon hearing about it, the adults of each branch family sent their children to attend the academy and compete.

As the Momobamis also take part in gambling, they are all skilled gamblers. They are also each very intent on banishing Kirari from the family, especially Terano Totobami, who leads the operation.


General Rules

A vote chip

The Election lasts 30 days. During that time, held gambles will not use normal money chips, but rather vote chips. Each student received one vote chip at the beginning. The only way to gain votes for yourself is by gambling. Every student is a potential candidate. Whoever has the most votes at the end of that time-span is the winner and the new president. If one hasn't got any more votes to bet, they can use serve coins. If they are lost, one of them is worth 24 hours of the betters life, during which they must obey the Council. There are even special chips, worth one million and the rest of ones life as well.

Election Committee

The main office of the Election Committee

The whole Election is overseen and managed by the Election Committee. Runa Yomozuki is the head is and all under her are Election Observers, where they can all be identified by an animal-hoodie and the known members are Inaho Yamato, Rumia Uru, and Kurara Kurokura. If a gamble with votes happens, an election observer must be present, otherwise it isn't valid. They are very strict about cheating and remain neutral. The Committee handles all gambles and vote distribution. Every now and then, live broadcasts are also held by the Committee to inform the students about which ten gamblers currently lead with the most votes.


This table shows, how many votes the players have gained and lost during the Election. All of them started out with one single vote.
