"Who was elected president?" - obvious

"Who was elected by the president?" - Who was elected to some unnamed office by the president. It was the president who elected the person.

"Who was elected the president?" I am not sure. I am not strong enough in this topic and not an author of this exercise. I found this https://forum.wordreference.com/threads/bush-was-elected-the-president-of-the-united-states.2620380/ . But that is a specific example and our sentence is more general. If you have some credible source for allowing it, please show it.

"Who was elected the president?" sounds wrong to me. Just skip "the" here.
