The Bijani House of Representatives election of 1981 took place on Sunday, March 1, 1981, to elect the 173 members of the 9th Bijani House of Representatives.  The incumbent four-party coalition government led by the Liberal Democatic Party sought a second term against a centre-left opposition Social Democratic Party.

Constituencies

Bijan's 23 first-level administrative divions, called counties in English and kantonoj in Esperanto, serve also as electoral districts. The number of members each county is allocated is determined by its population, and must be recalculated after every second ordinary election, or every eight years, whichever is sooner. The 1981 election took place after a recalculation in which the following changes were made:

Results

The result was a second consecutive success for the Liberal Democatic Party, which gained 18 seats.  The LDP won an additional nine county seats, but was also awarded an unprecedented 13 leveling seats.  The failure of three of Bijan's minor parties to cross the four-percent threshold required to receive leveling seats resulted in the larger parties being over-represented in proportion to their shares of the national vote.
