The 1st Demirelian general election took place from the 27th til the 28th of December 2019, encompassing legislative elections to the Landsting. Originally scheduled to take place from the 27th to the 29th December, it ended one day earlier due to voter turnout of 100%.

Background

The Landsting was originally a purely appointed body, it’s members being appointed by the Demirelian monarch. However, the body was transformed into an elected body following the enactment of the Constitutional Charter of 2019. Concurrent with the December federal election, state elections were thereby called.

In the lead up to the election, the Landsting passed a controversial Language Law on 5 December 2019, leading to the assembly splitting into political parties for the first time. These were the pro-language law Demirelian National Alliance and anti-language Law Demirelian Liberal Party.

Electoral system

Members of the Landsting are elected using a party-list proportional representation system and the Droop quota is used for allocating seats to parties. Each party gets to submit a list of members who wish to be elected in the Landsting and must not exceed the total number of seats. Members under the party list are ordered accordingly at the discretion of the party and they have to belong to the same party as their party list.

Campaign

National Alliance

The National Alliance centred it’s campaign around the promise of continuing to defend the state’s Norwegian identity.

Liberals

The Liberal Party campaigned on a promise to repeal the 2019 Language Law, re-equalising English and Norwegian, along with instituting constitutional reform to limit royal power.
