The Posafian federal election, May 2020 (formally the 5th Posafian federal election) took place from the 3rd to the 14th of May 2020, as per Section V in the Constitituon. The campaigning period is set to take place for 2 weeks before the opening of polls on the 20th of April. This election will decide both legislatures, and local assemblies and leaders. The election was extended two days by the Higher Lords Election Committee due to the various ties in the Foreign sector. The election saw Henry Edwelo becoming the Higher Lord with a Posaf-Green Party majority government in the Kadelieort.
The Posaf-Green Party, led by the incumbent Lower Lord Henry Edwelo, won 7 seats to form a majority government which is up from the 5 seats they had in the previous Kadelieort. In the 2020 general election the Liberal Party won 3 seats and won a fourth 2 weeks later in a by-election while gaining one more after the Green Party merged into the Liberals. The Posaf-Green won the popular vote to the Conservatives which is the first time the Conservative have not tied or won the popular vote in a federal election. The New Democrats lost its seat in the Squamily sector but gained the new seat in the Foreign sector. The NDP did get the third most votes and gained a seat in the House of Commons as the Buck Party came fourth in the popular vote.
The Posafian federal election, May 2020 is the second elections to take place in 2020, traditionally starting on the second of the month as Founders Day is, and ending on 12 May 2020. Elections to the Kadelieort are possibly up to eleven seats adding another in the Foreign Sector. Local elections will be occurring documented in this election in Nievenorte, Essex and Squamily along with the first-ever election in Asiata.
With the rise of Progressivism in Posaf and the merger of the Liberals an the Greens the election is seen and predicted to be an upset for the Conservatives who have historically won the plurality of the vote sense 2018. Early polling in Squamily showed the Posaf-Greens had a larger lead however it has evened out. Due to the population boom of Nievenorte and Asiata a fourth seat is added making the total number of seats in the House of Commons 12.
Issue 1 on the May general election ballot features the Unicameral Election Day Referendum Bill, written by Emily Smith (Buck). The Bill is an Issue Bill by the Constitution which adds a question for voters to decide a law or ask direction for a law. Issue 1 asks voters if they want parliament to pursue a unicameral form of government, with an option of yes or no. The topic is popular amongst progressives in Posaf, that many progressives and their parties avidly support and believe in.
The main party only opposing is the Conservatives and factions of the Posaf-Greens (the former Liberal side), and a large portion of the NDP. The party mainly supporting Issue 1 are the Bucks, with the Posaf-Greens (the former Green side), and a faction of the NDP. The Conservatives and some Posaf-Green members actively campaigned against it while the Buck Party did not.

Legislative elections were held on 4 January 2020 through January 13, 2020, and allowed eleven seats in the Kadelieort to be elected using a party list - Jefferson method. A new seat was to be given to the Foreign sector, as the population grew over 25% in Nievenorte.
