The 2015 Aduraszna presidential election took place on Saturday, 15 August, between 6.00 a.m. and 10.00 p.m. Tsálun Szalun Jarusz of ReNDaF was seeking a second term in office. However, despite winning the first preference votes, he lost in the final round to the Movement for Ecological Action candidate, Nakhas Tsirun. Tsirun's inauguration took place the following Monday, on the 17th.

Traditionally, despite its prominence, the major left-wing party AK/ER does not field candidates for the presidency, ever since the two catastrophic attempts to replace KN-CR's Tsálun Isztal Ra'ak in 1985 and 1990, which were marred with corruption and even an allegation of attempted murder. As such, the party typically "recommends" one of the other left or centre candidates; 2015's recommendation was for Tsirun.
