This article gives an overview of General Elections in Ostentia. Under the Ostentian electoral system, general elections are held regularly (normally once every month) and are the main mechanism by which governments are appointed.

Ostentian Electoral SystemEdit

Since unification, general elections in Ostentia have always consisted of two simultaneous elections: parliamentary elections and prime ministerial elections.

Parliamentary elections involve the election of members of parliament to seats in the House of Commons. This is done by a simple first-past-the-post ballot in each of the 237 constituencies of Ostentia. There have been calls for this system to be replaced with an additional member system, but no changes have been made so far.

Prime Ministerial elections directly determine which politician holds the position of Prime Minister and, by extension, the party which forms the government. Up until the first June 2008 General Election, this was also done by a simple first-past-the-post ballot, although it has now been replaced by contingent voting.

Politicalgraph

How voting patterns have changed over time.

For much of Ostentia's history, it was a two-party system. Following the merger of the ME Party into the F&V=P Party, the only two parties to operate on a national scale were the F&V=P Party and the Boo Party. This remained the case until the April 2008 General Election, when the LMIATPEFO Party stunned the political world by winning the election. Although the party would go on to be dispanded, it is widely regarded as having broken the two party system: recent elections have seen as many as six parties competing. Whether or not this situation will continue remains to be seen.
