Elections

Partisan changes in the 52nd Senate by province.
Light green: RUMP hold; Light blue: MRPT hold; Light red: FreeDem hold; Dark gray not up

A record six seats were up for reelection, including three special elections in Cézembre, Maricopa and Vuode. Only one seat was open (in Cézembre), and only the Benitian and Vuodean races were contested. Despite the unusually high number of seats up for reelection, no partisan gains were made by any party.

Benito

Lüc da Schir won reelection to a third term, defeating Eiric Börnatfiglheu with 75% of the vote. No other people received first round preferences.

Benito Senate Election
Lüc da Schir 15
Eiric Börnatfiglheu 5
MRPT hold

Cézembre

Former PP Senator and current MRPT Sénéchal Alèxandreu Soleighlfred won his race without a declared opponent. Unlike in the previous race, which was awarded without ballots being cast under Cézembrean law due to the absence of a challenger to Glüc da Dhi, voting took place as the race was conducted by the National Chancery.

This will be Soleighlfred's second stint in the Senate, the first as a result of an election, but he will serve only one Cosa as this was a special election for the remainder of Glüc da Dhi's term.

Cézembre Senate Special Election
Alèxandreu Soleighlfred 8
Glüc da Dhi (write-in) 3
scattered write-ins 4
MRPT hold

Fiôvâ

In Fiôvâ, the sitting Lord President of the Senate Gödafrïeu Válcadác'h has been reelected to a second term, his first term in his own right.

Gödafrïeu Válcadác'h 12

FreeDem hold

Maricopa

In Maricopa, interim Senator Cresti Siervicül will get to complete the two remaining Cosas in Béneditsch Ardpresteir's term, after winning the election with no opposition. The race, however, required three rounds of IRV to be declared due to the high number of scattered write-in votes. This interestingly marks the second time out of two that the Maricopan seat was won at the third countback, despite the previous election having three candidates as opposed to the lone candidacy of Siervicül in this instance.

Maricopa Senate Special Election
IRV/RCV First and Second Rounds
Cresti Siervicül 7
Tariq Zubair (write-in) 2
Txoteu É. Davinescu (write-in) 2
scattered write-ins 3
The race advances to a third round.

(Txoteu Davinescu received a second vote from a second preference in one of the scattered write-ins)

IRV/RCV Second Round
Cresti Siervicül 7
Tariq Zubair (write-in) 2

RUMP hold

Siervicül will continue his first term as a Senator.

Maritiimi-Maxhestic

New Moderate Radical Party Leader Ian Plätschisch has been elected to a first term in his own right, with no opposition. He had served during the last Clark of the previous Cosa as an interim appointee. This continues a curious coincidence by the MRPT of always having its current leader serve in the Senate.

The election was conducted by the provincial government by public ballot.

M-M Senate Election
Ian Plätschisch 5
MRPT hold

Vuode

In Vuode, Trotxâ Betiñéir won the special election to complete Éovart Grischun's term against Viteu Marcianüs. The seat will be up in the next General Elections as well.

Vuode Senate Special Election
Trotxâ Betiñéir 5
Viteu Marcianüs 2
