The July 2022 Georgienstinian congressional election was held on 23–24 July 2022.

It resulted in a Georgienstine First victory, with the party keeping its majority and making unexpected minor gains. Vision Georgienstine suffered losses due to low voter turnout among its supporters. Change Georgienstine lost its sole seat due to low voter turnout among its supporters.

Background

The May 2022 Georgienstinian congressional election resulted in Georgienstine First remaining as the majority party and Vision Georgienstine gaining one seat. Both parties' gains in the popular vote and seats were attributed to the dissolution of the Communist Party.

On 1 June 2022, Thomas Jacobs won the speaker election receiving 9 votes, to Addison Dillons's 4, with 3 not voting.

On 7 July 2022, Jacobs resigned as speaker, following the introduction of articles of impeachment by fellow Georgienstine First congressman Sean Dunkerque. Jacobs had already faced criticism in the past from the Minority Caucus.

On 20 June 2022, the Solidarity Party left the Vision Georgienstine alliance and formed the Change Georgienstine alliance with the Social Democratic and Labour Party.
