2014-2015 elections

The Progressive Union and its allies have been a dominant force in Suverskan elections. In the first two years of Suverskan history, the Progressive Union, then known as the Liberal Socialists, consistently won a majority of the seats in the National Assembly. In the first-ever election to the National Assembly, which took place in March 2014, the Liberal Socialists won 11 of the 13 seats, with the other two going to the opposition Canada Party. Six months later, at the start of October 2014, the Liberal Socialists lost the majority but held onto the most seats with 7 out of 15, while the new Green Party captured five and the Canada Party three.

In April 2015, the Liberal Socialists regained the majority with 10 of the 19 seats, while the Green Party maintained five seats and the Canada Party gained one. While the 2014 Constitution dictated that elections were to take place every six months or less, this was changed in October 2015 to be no more than twelve months apart. As well, to stop the growth of the National Assembly, the number of seats in the assembly was set at 23, a number which was not changed until 2020, when it was lowered to 21. In October 2015, the Liberal Socialists won twelve seats, the Canada Party five, and the Green Party one. The election also saw the addition of a new party Medical First Party, who got four seats, stealing much of the popularity from the Greens, as well as the election of one independent member to the assembly.

2016-2019 elections

From 2016 to 2019, Suverska experienced a time of stability in its political system, with the Liberal Socialists and its allies consistently winning elections under the name Our Coalition, which included the Medical First Party and Green Party, both of whom later merged into the larger party in 2020.

In the 2016 election, the Liberal Socialists failed to win the most seats for the first time, but Our Coalition, consisting of the Liberal Socialists (7 seats), Medical Firsts (5 seats), and Greens (2 seats), is able to form a majority government over the Canada Party (8 seats) and an independent member. After a very diverse election result in 2017, Our Coalition (LS 6, MF 4, G 1) forms a minority government agsint the opposition, which includes the Canada Party (5 seats), an independent member, and two new parties, the Family Party and the Heritage Party, who won four and two seats, respectively.

In the 2018 election, Our Coalition formed a majority government with thirteen the 23 seats in the Assembly (LS 6, MF 5, G 2). The Family Party won four seats again, while the Canada Party failed to get at least the third in the seat count for the first time ever. As well, the Heritage Party achieved its greatest performance of three seats, and no independent candidates win a seat for the first time since 2015. In 2019, Our Coalition forms government for the third time in a row (LS 6, MF 6, G 1), while the Canada Party and Family Party win three seats each, and the Heritage Party and the new National Party wins two each.
