The Susquehannock general election of March, 2017 was held on March 1 to elect members of the Susquehannock House of Commons of the 4th Parliament of Susquehanna. The election was called after Conservative Christian Alliance (CCA) MP Samuel Ewing was persuaded to vote along with the Progressive Labor Party (PLP) in favor of a snap election. On 15 February, the election bill was passed, calling an election for 1 March. The governing Right coalition between the CCA and Nationalists both lost a seat; for the Nationalists, their only one. This caused the PLP to gain the seats of Wolf Creek and Zion View, giving it a 6-3-0 majority. This also caused Alex Mitchell, Susquehanna's first Prime Minister, to gain the premiership for the second time.
