2022 Roscamistan senatorial election
5 seats needed for a majority
The July 2022 Roscamistan senatorial election was the first election to the Senate after it was made an elected body. The Republican Bloc, under Majority Leader Jan Kotoński won 4 seats, and came out on top as the party with the most seats. As the Senate was reduced from 12 to 9 seats, atleast three people were to lose their seats. The minority caucus was reduced to one person, and as the only minority senator, Hunt Powell became Minority Leader of the Senate.
The Senate was originally constituted in February 2022 as an appointed upper house of the National Assembly. The Senate would have had its 12 members appointed by the President and were to be delegates of minority ethnic groups, smaller parties and people who weren’t elected to the Chamber of Representatives. In late June 2022, the Senate Reform Act was passed, which changed the composition of the Senate to 9 seats, and made it elected. The members of the 1st Senate were to keep their seats until the election, of which atleast three would not be re-elected as the amount of seats decreased by a quarter.

- Kotoński serves as Majority Leader of the Senate, and as such also serves as de facto leader of Republican Bloc in the Senate, as the actual party leader, Thomas Jacobs, serves as a representative
- Party constituted itself on day of results, so it is shown here, as opposed to Bradaten being an independent during the actual ballots being open
