The August 2020 General Election was held from July 15th to August 1st 2020/XLI. All of the Cosa was up for reelection, plus regularly scheduled Senate elections in Maritiimi-Maxhestic and Benito, and a special election in Cézembre. Six referendums on amendments to the Organic Law were also proposed.
|Free Democrats of Talossa (FreeDem)||Miestrâ Schivâ||Progressivism, liberalism, republicanism|
|League of Centre Conservatives (LCC)||Ian Plätschisch||Pragmatism, moderate monarchism, reformism, conservatism|
|New Peculiar Way (NPW)||Eiric Börnatfiglheu||Peculiarism, republicanism|
|Free Democrats of Talossa||46||49.46%|
|League of Centre Conservatives||34||35.56%|
|New Peculiar Way||13||12.62%|
|Present/Invalid votes: 12|
The Free Democrats fell precisely one seat (or two votes) short of an absolute majority. The monarchist LCC won more than 1/3 of the seats, giving it a veto over future Organic Law reform.
The ultimate outcome of the election was a coalition between the Free Democrats and the New Peculiar Way.
