There is no such thing as major elections that have been decided by humans. Only elections from very small locations are actually decided by humans, but all presidents, for every single country in the world, are decided by the order. This is because they are hired by the order to do their job in ways that benefit humanity under the regulations that the order considers to be ideal.
There is nothing more important to the order than being able to maintain a certain level of order and control. If the order allow humanity to take full control of the Earth, it would not be long until things would get ruined beyond repair. This is why the order will not stop controlling certain aspects of the way humanity works until humans have shown that they are responsible enough to take full charge of the planet and the future of humanity.
