In the spring of that year Animal Farm was declared a Republic and so it was put forth that they needed to "elect" a president for it. All the animals voted for their new president, but the circumstances weren't exactly reminiscent of a democratically run government. There was only one candidate however- Napoleon so he won by an obvious unanimous landslide.
