The upcoming General Election will be held from November 15th to December 1st 2019/XL. All of the Cosa will be up for reelection, plus regularly scheduled Senate elections in Florencia, Maricopa and Fiova, and a special election in Cézembre.

The lone amendment that is expected to be voted on is the Still Into This Amendment, which implements the so-called 2017 Organic Law proposal.

Registered parties

Six national political parties - the most since the elections to the 49th Cosa - either registered for the election, have announced they would do so, or are otherwise expected to:

Party Beliefs
  Awakening and Magnifying Passion Pragmatism, monarchism, reformism
  Free Democrats of Talossa Progressivism, liberalism, republicanism
  Make Talossa Great Again (MTGA) Populism, republicanism
  New Peculiar Way (NPW) Peculiarism, republicanism
  Recruits for Upholding the Monarchy and its Principles (RUMP) Monarchism, conservativism, derivativism
  Zefençadéirs del Päts Talossan Monarchism, conservativism, traditionalism

Three parties are slated to return after a hiatus: the ZPT, a party that was most known in its 1998-2005 iteration, but will be revived for a second time by Ieremiac'h Ventrutx; MTGA, whose only member Mximo Carbonel had sat out the 53rd Cosa; and the New Peculiar Way, which held seats in 2013 but has largely been dormant since, only sporadically holding seats in Benito.

Moderate Radicals Arise will not run again; this will likely spell the end of Erschéveþ da Schir's stay in the Cosa, which had lasted since the 48th Cosa, the second longest tenured MC behind the RUMP's Eovart Xhorxh.

The Free Democrats need a swing of 12 seats to win a majority; no party has managed to do so since 2013. RUMP and AMP need to gain 53 and 61 seats respectively; no such swing has ever been achieved under EM200, the biggest positive swing being the RUMP's +43 in the 36th Cosa.

Timeline

Senatorial races

Half of the Senate will be up for reelection: three regularly scheduled races for full terms in Florencia, Fiôvâ and Maricopa, and a special election in Cézembre, where freshman Senator Thor Deyaert lost his seat by failing to vote.

Had the merger between Fiovâ and Florencia been successful, Iarneria (the name of the merged province) would have been expected to elect its first Senator, while the election for the seat of Maritiimi-Maxhestic would have also been up for election, to respect the Organic provision that three seats should be up for a full term at each General Election.

Cézembre (special)

Cézembre will elect a senator for the sixth time in the last seven general elections. Of the five Senators that held the seat since mid-2015, only Ian Anglatzara served more than six Clarks, and none actually served for a whole term:

  • Txosuè Rôibeardescù, elected in 2015 upon Glüc da Dhi's retirement, lost his seat in the coattails of a corruption scandal;
  • Anglatzara only served the two-Cosa remainder of his term;
  • the following two-Cosa term was split between a returned da Dhi, who resigned his seat to accept an appointment as Secretary of State, and Alexandreu Soleiglhfred, who declined to seek reelection in the wake of the collapse of the MRPT;
  • and Thor Deyaert lost his seat by failing to vote.

The last senator to complete a term was Glüc da Dhi, who served two whole terms and one extra Cosa between 2011 and 2015.

No candidate has declared their intention to run. The seat is one of two expected to be competitive, should multiple candidates from different parties be on the ballot.

Florencia

Ieremiac'h Ventrutx, the incumbent, was elected in a special election to complete the remainder of Ma la Mha's term. He has yet to announce his intention to run; in his special election campaign, he was elected as a write-in candidate (no other name actually appeared on the ballot, in a first for Talossa since Reunision). Ventrutx is also running with his own party, the ZPT, which he brought back after a hiatus of ten years.

AMP has announced that Breneir Itravilatx, a former Foreign Minister and Senator for Maritiimi-Maxhestic between 2010 and 2011, would contest the seat.

Fiova

The incumbent is Gödafrïeu Válcadác'h, currently the third longest tenured Senator, who had served as Lord President (Mençei) of the Senate in 2018 and is well known as the long-time Royal Archivist of Talossa. He has announced his intention to run for reelection.

No challenger has declared their intention to run. The last contested election in Fiôvâ was in December 2013, when the NPW's Dieter Vercáriâ took on the ZRT's Miestrâ Schivâ.

Maricopa

The incumbent is Sir Cresti Siervicül, the lone senator to be affiliated with the RUMP. Siervicül has completed his first term in the Senate, which he joined in late 2017, initially as an appointee and then winning a special election to complete the rest of the term.

The seat is one of two expected to be competitive, should multiple candidates from different parties be on the ballot. Maricopa was the first province where IRV was applied to a Senate race.

Neither Siervicül nor any challenger has declared their intention to run; however, AMP announced that current Foreign Minister Txoteu Davinescu, who was expected to contest the seat for them, had left the party. It is currently unclear if Davinescu still plans to run for the seat; he was the MRPT's candidate in 2017, where he received the second-most first votes (29%), but lost out in the final IRV round.
