The Baustralia general election, 2020 took place on 20 June 2020.

Electoral system

One day before election polling started, the Parliament passed a motion to change the voting system to alternative voting. However, as there are only two candidates, the first-past-the-post system was used. The prime minister is elected directly by the citizens where they fill ballots saying which prime minister they wish to elect, then the votes are tallied per province, with the competitor voted by majority gaining the seat in parliament. The competitor with the most seats becomes prime minister.

Election

The election took place on 20 June 2020 as per the Fixed Terms Election Act.
