The October 2008 General Election took place on 16/10/2008 following the dissolution of parliament at the end of the 4th Pokemaniac John Government. Voters from across Ostentia took part in the electoral process, voting for both a prime ministerial candidate and a parliamentary candidate. The election was controversial as a large number of parties failed to register their prime ministerial candidates in time for the vote. Many parliamentary candidates also failed to appear on the ballot. The election was won by the DSP which gained a majority of seats in parliament and won a majority of votes in the government election, leading to the formation of the 1st Cieran Government. However, soon after the new parliament was convened a formal legal challenge to the election result was made by opposition parties. Fresh elections are expected to take place in early 2009.
