The law currently in force was voted by the Amassada[1] on 2 November 2019. It divides the Union into three constituencies (Iberia, Midi-Gironde and Mixed). Each constituency elects one, two or three deputies. The election is held in one round and the deputies are elected in absolute proportional representation.

Date of the election

The decree[2] made by the President of Occitania said that the election would be held Saturday, November 23, 2019. By custom, it is appropriate to file the lists in the constiutionel court ten days before that date, ie November 13. There are no standards defining a possible beginning of the official campaign.

Background

Initial political crisis

After several weeks of scramble within the majority leading to a political imobilism, leaders of the party Convergence and Will gathered for a congress called the Congress of All Saints 2019. Two resolutions were approved by the congress, in the first place a new name of the party (Convergence and Will moves to the Democratic Party), and a new alignment on social democratic politics. Subsequently, Prime Minister Vicent Branchadell left the party to rebuild his former party, Montserrat, pro-Catalan and anti-capitalist in alliance with the Democratic Party.[3]

Dissolution of the assembly by the President of the Union

Two days after the Congress of All Saints 2019, in accordance with article 9b of the occitanian constitution, the President of the Union Babou Chkaya has dissolved the I Legislature and called early elections on November 23, at the same time as the local elections. It was decided later to open the polling stations on Friday 22 and closed them on Saturday 23. A few minutes before its dissolution, the parliament passed an electoral law on the Spanish model, the Union is divided into several constituencies on which will be elected 1, 2 or 3 deputies.[4]

Contesting political parties and candidates

On November 6th 2019, the Constitutional court has published the link for the registration of candidates. On the same day, Montserrat party has send it's list, the party will be running only in Iberia with Vicent Branchadell has head of list and candidate for Prime Minister office.
