The December 2009 General Election was held on December 23, 2009. Voters cast votes in simultaneous Government and parliamentary elections. Due to a exact tie in the Government Elections between Lord Wallace Buttersworth of the AAPA-CCP Coalition and Inevitable of the Boo Party, the outcome of the Government election is to be decided by the Ostentian House of Commons. The Deadlock was finally broken on January 1st, 2010 when the Ostentian House of Commons approved a Confidence Motion in Carl Miller and The Alliance.

New Election Rules Edit
This is the first election of the new configuration of the Ostentian House of Commons, with 154 sitting Members of Parliament, a reduction of 26 seats. This now means that a party or coalition must gain control of 78 seats for an outright majority government (down from 91), although this is not necessary to govern. Also, each state has a number of seats that are elected in two different manners: Some seats are elected via constituency, and others are elected on at-large basis from the whole state.
The Reform Party initially attempted to field a primary, but the leading candidate Simon Commoncold announced that he would not be a candidate for the Reform Party, which folded. Simon Commoncold would later run as an "Independent Conservative".
Incumbent Coalition leader Kay "DynamoJax" Jackson ran against challenger Lord Wallace Buttersworth. In a dramatic reversal, Buttersworth defeated Jackson for the nomination by a result of 55.71% of delegates for Buttersworth and 41.10% of delegates for Jackson.
Lord Davies announced shortly before the election was due to take place that he was called to run for Prime Minister by a higher power.
Simon Commoncold, the original parliamentary leader for the Reform Party announced that he would again run, this time as an "Independent Conservative."
