Alexandre Olivier I
Nationalist

The July 2020 Georgienstinian House of Representatives election was a snap election called by President Raphaël Olivier I following the installation of a democracy. This election was held simultaneously with the July 2020 Georgienstinian Senatorial Election.

The election resulted in a victory for the Nationalist Party. It also saw the rise of the Libertarian and Labour parties.

Background

Following the implementation of democracy in Georgienstine, numerous opposition parties were calling for a snap congressional election as the National House of Representatives did not have any members.

Electoral system and organization

The House of Representatives was composed of 8 seats elected by proportional representation in a single nationwide constituency, with a legal threshold of 1 full seat (12.5%), and residuals assigned by the D’Hondt method.

Campaign

Party leaders remained largely silent throughout the campaign period. However, once voting opened, Nationalist Party politicians tried to get Nationalist Party members to vote. This attempt to get party members to get out and vote was largely successful.
