The 2024 American presidential elections represent a key event that the entire world is watching with anticipation. The outcome of these elections, determining who will sit in the Oval Office of the White House next year, is particularly crucial. The election of a new American president will have a significant impact not only on the United States but also on the current geopolitical situation and the development of two major conflicts that are capturing the attention of the entire world. The main candidates, who are most likely to face off, are Joe Biden, striving to protect democracy and complete his initiated projects, and Donald Trump, whose campaign is characterized by the radical approach of 'Make America Great Again'. Both candidates face different challenges, but what is common for both political parties is the absence of another potential candidate who could define a new direction for American politics.

What will likely be the impact of the election results on the conflicts in Ukraine and Israel? How will the results influence the future political direction of the United States and its role in the world? What impact will the selection of a new president have on international alliances, especially relations with allies and rivals? What are the alternatives in case Joe Biden is unable to complete his term, or if Donald Trump faces actual imprisonment?
