July 2020 Georgienstinian senatorial election
All 8 seats in the National Senate of Georgienstine
5 seats needed for a majority
The July 2020 Georgienstinian senatorial 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 Congressional Election.
Following the implementation of democracy in Georgienstine, numerous opposition parties were calling for a snap congressional election as the National Senate did not have any members.
Electoral system and organization
The Senate was composed of 5 seats elected by proportional representation in a single nationwide constituency, with a legal threshold of 1 full seat (20%), and residuals assigned by the D’Hondt method.
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 were largely successful. Labour’s lack of campaigning is widely believed to have cost them a majority in the Senate.
|Nationalist Party||Aidan Clifford||3||57.1%|
|Labour Party||Benjamin Pickles||2||42.9%|
