The January 2022 Georgienstinian congressional election were held on 29–30 January 2022.

These elections resulted in another equal 8–8 split between Georgienstine First and Vision Georgienstine, so Vice President Tom Mark will cast the tie-breaking votes in organizing the National Congress. The election thereby results in a Georgienstine First as Mark is from the party. Georgienstine First suffered minor losses in the popular vote but gained two seats. Vision Georgienstine suffered minor losses in the popular vote but gained no seats. This is the first time in history when Georgienstine First lost the popular vote, though this is attributed to two independents running after having left the party.


The October 2021 Georgienstinian congressional election resulted in Georgienstine First remaining as the majority party.

On 14 December 2021, Minority Leader May Junkin and Ariel Lederman both resigned and were replaced by Adrian Carneiro Dias and John Gagnon.

Minority Whip Ben Olson resigned as Minority Whip to run for Minority Leader. He was elected as Minority Leader. Nicolas Caiazzo was elected Minority Whip.

On 5 January 2022, congressman Isaiah Burdette called for a leadership review for Majority Leader Alexandre Olivier. 7 congresspeople voted to keep Olivier and 1 voted to remove him.

On 11 January 2022, the speaker election was inconclusive with Andrew Perdomo receiving 7 votes, to Addison Dillons's 7, with 2 not voting. Dean of the National Congress Raphaël Olivier exercises the duties of the speaker until a speaker is elected.

On 14 January 2022, Andrew Perdomo won the speaker election receiving 8 votes, to Addison Dillons's 7, with 1 not voting. Due to the passing of the Tiebreaker Act, Vice President Tom Mark voted for Perdomo giving him a majority of votes.

Electoral system and organization

The National Congress is composed of 16 seats elected by proportional representation in a single nationwide constituency, with a legal threshold of 1 full seat (6.25%), and residuals assigned by the D’Hondt method.


Political observers have noted that the campaign has been less active than usual, due to the lack of many controversial pieces of legislation being presented in congress and the congress's activity, which removed activity as an electoral issue.

Despite campaigning not having officially begun, parties have already been organizing efforts and canvassing. In early January, Georgienstine First and the New Progressive Party both released posters regarding the Defence of Democracy Act. The NPP also released posters on inactivity, the speakership election, climate change and one on a comment made by Majority Leader Alexandre Olivier, in which he said that Isaiah Burdette would be on GF's congressional list. Georgienstine First responded by releasing a poster that attacked their opponents for supposedly attempting to score "cheap political points". Throughout the campaign, Isaiah Burdette released many posters about Ben Olson and Andrew Perdomo released posters and held events for his presidential campaign.

Georgienstine First

On 22 January 2022, Georgienstine First released its congressional list. They campaigned heavily on effectiveness and productivity in congress.

Vision Georgienstine

On 24 January 2022: Vision Georgienstine released its congressional list. They campaigned heavily on climate change.

Independent candidates

On 20 January 2022, Georgienstine First congressman Isaiah Burdette announced his candidacy as an independent and was expelled from the party. He attempted to register a political party but failed to do so as he lacked the minimum of 2 members needed to register one. He has since filed a lawsuit.

On 29 January 2022, Georgienstine First congressman and speaker Andrew Perdomo announced his candidacy as an independent and left the party. Perdomo left the party as he would have likely been removed from the list following threats that he would leave the party if he was not selected as Raphaël Olivier’s running mate in the 2022 Georgienstinian presidential election.


Voter fraud

The Federal Electoral Commission (FEC) reported that 2 votes were cast by one individual in the two peoples' place, in favour of the New Progressive Party. An investigation by the FEC and Defence Intelligence Agency has announced that there are currently no more suspected voter fraud cases, though the culprit remains unknown.

Isaiah Burdette jokingly claimed that the "Deep State Pickles" was responsible for mass-voter fraud.
