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.
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.
