Elections were held by various electoral methods across Elwynn. Each royal precinct decided on its own method of election, and there is much doubt that the results were representative of the people's actual will. For example, the Nationalist and Humanist Party, which dominated bailiwick governments across Alalehzamin and Utasia, only received a fraction of these counties' delegation to the Royal Parliament. However, in a surprise twist in the election, the pro-regime Royal Union and its allied parties, Elfinshi Fury and Coalition of Absentian Farmers, failed to receive a majority in the Assembly. As such, parliamentary business in the lower house was dominated by an informal coalition of the other parties, calling themselves "His Riverine Majesty's Loyal Opposition". It is believed that these results convinced the King not to hold any more elections to the Assembly.


Initially, the 24 seats for Cimmeria and Illumination were announced to be all filled by the Holy Party of the Divine Icebear, but the King ordered a recount on the matter which caused much upheaval in Cimmeria and Illumination.
