The October 2015 Suwerennian federal election (formally the 6th Suwerennian federal election) will be held on October 26, 2015 to elect members to the Parliament of Suwerenny.

Background

The August 2015 federal election resulted in the continuation of the incumbent Liberal-Democrat government, headed by T C, while the Greens continued as the Official Opposition and the Communists had their worst election in party history and are again the third party. The Liberal-Democrats won 42.9 percent of seats, almost forming a majority government, but failing to do so. A few weeks before the election a new party was created called the Medical First Party based around a newly created "medical politics", for the first time in Suwerennian election history, an independent candidate is running in a federal election. The number of seats in the Senate to be contested in the 6th Suwerennian federal election will be 19, an increase of five seats from the 14 seats comprising the Senate of Suwerenny of the 6th Parliament of Suwerenny, at its dissolution. President C called the election on October 4, it was called over a month early.
