Elected Prime Minister

Andrew Burges
Nationalist

Parliamentary elections were held in Australia on Saturday, 1 October 2050 to determine the members of the 61st Australian Parliament.

Taking place a year following the passage of the Dissolution Acts which formally dissolved the national upper house (Senate) and expanded the number of representative seats to 215, the election was held to decide the members of parliament during the 'time of crisis' in which the powers of government were to rise immensely. 

The incumbent Australian Nationalist Party won comfortably with an increased tally of popular votes and seats in the house, along with almost fifty 'independent' representatives who commonly supported (and in some cases, were members of) the ANP. The opposition Democratic party on the other hands suffered from a lack of funds, party infighting and several scandals that affected their already faltering poll numbers.

Ultimately, they remained de facto opposition due to the fact that they remained the second largest party in Parliament (even after a loss of 24 seats), but in practice held little power.
