December 2021, Saspearian Parliamentary Special Elections

Earlier this month, Connor Shaw (I-Logejo) departed as a member of parliament and from the Saspearian community due to unknown circumstances. Which has led to special elections being held to fill the seat in the vacancy of the second seat of Logejo.

Background

In October, a new proposition was introduced and passed by parliament, allowing for two seats per province. There was also a special election held to fill the vacancies of the second seats of Logejo and Owens. Hunt Powell (Moderate Party) was elected to the second seat of Owens and Connor Shaw (Independent) was elected to the second seat of Logejo.

First Parliamentary Special Election

From December 18 through December 20, a parliamentary special election was held to fill the vacancy of Logejo (Seat 2). The initial results yesterday, had a tie in the election which had Alan Malcolm (Socialist Party) with 2 votes and the Abstain option with 2 votes. However, later results had the Abstain option with 3 votes (60%) and Alan Malcolm (Socialist Party) with 2 votes (40%). The turnout was lower compared to previous elections as 31% (5/16) citizens voted in the election. Since the majority of the votes were cast for the abstain option, another special election is currently being held.
