The 1691 Drak-Modani Fury elections were scheduled to be conducted in 1689, but were first delayed until 1690 according to emergency chancellorial declarations due to the Drak-Modani Civil War and then delayed again until 1691 due to the Sanaman intervention in Drak-Modan. These were the first elections to be conducted under the 1690 constitution and after the 1685 Kurpla Conference created the positions of co-chancellors and co-monarchs. With Clara Sundara leaving Drak-Modan, and King John declaring himself separated from the Natopian-dominated House of Waffel-Paine, support for the Natopian-aligned Bagelcraticans in the Fury collapsed. In 1690, amid the growing turmoil of the Draconian Supremacy Movement, the Solidarity-Bagelcratican alliance entirely collapsed when nine Solidarity members refused to support Bagelcratican leader Arslan Djangirov as co-chancellor. A backroom deal between Solidarity party leader Kamil Gavrilov and Modani People's Union leader Davit Teimuraz resulted in the MPU dropping its anti-Natopian plank, Solidarity dropping its pro-immigration plank, and both parties adopting the populist Draconian supremacy agenda, as each party saw a use for it. Solidarity saw it as a way to promote Drak-Modani identity and unity, and the MPU saw it as a populist way to promote their brand of Humanism. The party leaders did not explicitly believe in the merits or pseudoscience espoused by Draconian supremacists, but adopted it as a political necessity as Draconian supremacy was sweeping the nation, encouraged by the charismatic Co-Monarchs of Drak-Modan.

With the two largest parties controlling a supermajority of The Fury, it was easy to elect themselves Co-Chancellors of Drak-Modan, amend the constitution and alter laws to promote Draconian supremacy, and usher in an era of Draconian supremacy and Drak-Modani exceptionalism. Before the elections were conducted, largely due to fear of either party gaining a simply majority, the Solidarity Party and the Modani People's Union agreed to appear on the ballots together as a single coalition, the Committee for United Modani Solidarity.
