Baustralia general election, 2021
All 15 seats in the House of Commons
8 seats needed for a majority
The 2021 Baustralia general election took place on 27 June 2021, one week after the originally planned date.
One day before 2019 election polling started, the Parliament passed a motion to change the voting system to alternative voting. However, as there are only two candidates, the first-past-the-post system is used. The prime minister is elected directly by the citizens where they fill ballots saying which prime minister they wish to elect, then the votes are tallied per province, with the competitor voted by majority gaining the seat in parliament. The competitor with the most seats becomes prime minister.
The election should have taken place on 20 June 2021 as per the Fixed Terms Election Act, however it was moved a week after Sir Nick Sullivan dropped out as the 2021 Conservative candidate. He was succeeded by Wing commander Ella Parker.
