The 2020 Lyteran general election of July was the second general election to be held in Lyteran history. The general election was held on Wednesday 1st July, 2020. The election was called after the Owen Ministry failed to keep order in Parliament, be active, and stop infighting, and the opposition were inactive. [1]

The parliament was elected via the D'Hondt's method where the votes of only those political parties that receive at least a threshold percentage of the valid votes are taken into account. For the Lyteran Election, this threshold will 10% of the vote. The election was fiercely contested during the early stages, but after a purge of dissidents the Royalists came out on top.
