The next Atovian parliamentary election for the 4th Parliament is expected to be held in April 2021 at the latest.

Background

Previous election

The April 2020 election was held following the agreement of the Chancellor and Prime Minister to call a snap election due to rampant inactivity of the members of Parliament. The result of the election was one seat each for the New Democrats, Conservatives, and Solidarity.

Following a controversial period of government forming, King Connor I selected Thomas von Bainbridge of the NDP as the Prime Minister of a minority NDP government.

Electoral system

Atovia uses the Single transferable vote for parliamentary elections. The House of Commons has 3 members, elected for a maximum one-year term; these seats are currently elected in a national at-large district.

Date

The Basic Law and federal election law provide that parliamentary elections must be held at least every year. Therefore, the next election will take place before April 2021. The exact date will be determined by the Chancellor, Prime Minister, and Minister of Internal Affairs. Usually, a consecutive five-day period is chosen to allow for maximum voter turnout.
