The Saiiban Hivemind has secured a 53rd consecutive term in power, following a stunning election victory on its homeworld of Saiiban Prime.

Setting a galactic record, the election was completed after only ten microseconds. 100% of Saiiban population drones voted unanimously for the only candidate on the telepathic ballot.

Broadcasting via intrusive visual hallucinations to all sentient creatures in the local cluster, the Hivemind elect declared:

"We are one. We are one. We are one. We are one. We are one. We are one. We are one. We are one. We are one. We are one."

Jubilant scenes were reported across Saiiban Prime, with millions of drones clapping slowly, and somewhat menacingly, in unison. 

Local drone 3929 was eager to explain to our newsteam why he had voted for the Hivemind:

"We are one. We are one. We are one. We are one. We are one. We are one. We are one. We are one. We are one. We are one."

The Galactic UN, previously sceptical of the legitimacy of the election due to the lack of viable candidates, applauded the exceedingly high voter turnout and is now officially encouraging all democratic nations to consider adopting Hivemind protocols to foster further interstellar democracy.
