The Posafian general election, January 2020 is the first elections to take place in 2020, traditionally starting on Founders Day and ending on 12 January 2020. Elections to the Kadelieort are possibly up to eleven seats adding another in the Foreign Sector. Local elections will be first documented in this election.
Primaries for the election are set to take place between 30 November and 9 December of 2019. The Conservative parties Nicholas Randouler is stepping down as Higher Lord Leader and is speculated to run for Monarch, as the incumbent Prince Henry II is term-limited. The Liberal Party is set to stay the same with many speculating for a Monarch run, similarly with the NDP. Smaller parties such as the Bucks plan to get a new Higher Lord Leader and have the incumbent Higher Lord leader (Parker O'Leary) run for Monarch.

With a voter turnout of 86.15%, 56 people voted in the first round of elections from 2 January to 4 January March. Incumbent Higher Lord, Nicholas Randouler of the Conservative and incumbent MP from Squamily and Posafian History School, Nour Shamon of the Liberal both advanced to the second round of elections on 4 January. In the first round, Randouler earned 15% of the votes compared to Nour's 21%.
Polls during the second round of voting predicted that Randouler would win with a 4% to 6% margin of the votes. However, he won with 14% over Shamon. This was in part due to most of the foreign sector (Asiata, Nievenorte, and Wasat) voting for him, as he is one of the few Squamilanians to be present on the Psoafian Discord Server. Randouler won 54% to 40% out of 50 voters across the nation.

Higher Lord and House of Commons
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. Similarly, a seat was gained in the Squamily sector, but this was in part due to the United sector losing one of their seats.
