The 2020 Riveri National Assembly election was held on 24 October 2020. The West River Greens won a majority in the National Assembly, with Logan Jack being officially appointed as first minister after the results were officiated by the Election Commission. The election was called by President Benjamin Pickles immediately after he took office, fulfilling a campaign promise he made during the 2020 election.

Election system

Section III of article I of the Constitution of West River outlines the system used for National Assembly elections.

Section III: Elections for the Assembly can be called by the President of the Confederation (see Article II) at any time, but can be held no later than the third Saturday of the fourth month since the previous election. These elections will be held separately in each region, using the election system commonly known as Single Transferable Vote.

President Benjamin Pickles announced how the seats would be distributed, with 4 for Picklesine; 2 for Logastan; and 1 for Ellisine. The election used single transferable vote, with a threshold of 25% in Picklesine; 50% in Logastan; and an absolute majority in Ellisine. Notably, all three first minister candidates ran in Logastan.
