The 1996 Presidential Elections were held in Brunant on 7 October 1996. President Marta Henneman stood for re-election, backed by most of the left, and successfully was elected for a second six-year term.
The performance of Henneman during her first term as president garnered her much praise, and her promises of clamping down on smoking and pushing the government for better environmental change and economic development saw her portrayed as someone who would prod congress to be more active.
Henneman was able to win by a large margin, with the vote seen as a popular referendum in regards to her policies.
|Marta Henneman (SDP)||57%|
|Adrian Vandreck (CDU)||33%|
|Peter Henderson (GP)||10%|
