The 2023 Atovian parliamentary election took place from 14–18 April 2023 (16-20 Zehnat 06) to elect the 6th House of Commons of the Kingdom of Atovia. The election was called in accordance with the Basic Law and elected five Members of Parliament. The voting system used according to the Basic Law is the single transferable vote and members are elected in a multi-seat at-large electorate.

Background

The Conservative People's Party has held a majority in the House since the 2022 parliamentary election.

According to the Atovian Basic Law, parliamentary elections are to be held at least every twelve months. On 7 March 2023, the Minister of Internal Affairs announced the dates of the election, after which the campaign began.

Electoral system

Members of the House of Commons were elected by single transferable vote (STV) from a single at-large electorate with five seats. Voters complete a ballot, listing candidates in order of their preference. There is also an option for None of These Candidates (NoTC), which is a way for voters to show that they do not approve of some or all of the candidates on the ballot. Voters may mark as many or as few preferences as they wish. The ballots are then counted by computer under supervision of the Minister of Internal Affairs and the candidates standing for election. Each ballot is initially credited to its first-preference candidate but may be transferred on later counts using Meek's method to the next available preference where the first preference candidate is elected or eliminated.
