The Gerenian general election of 2013 was held on 14 July 2013 to elect a President, Provincial Governors, and members of the Parliament.


In August 2013, the "trial" year for members of Parliament, the President, and Provincial Governors expired. A new election was called, this time with the introduction of two-year terms for the above mentioned positions.


The Independent Party of Gerenia was the main party in the election. The 2013 election marked the beginning of a turn from the centre-right to the left, partly with the aim of attracting people who had voted the Socialist and the Popular parties, but mainly because of a change in the mentality of many members of the party. The Independent Party also showed itself as a nationalist party.

The left was represented in the election by the Socialist Party of Gerenia and the Popular Party, however, their respective leaders refused to form a coalition. Both forces relied on the middle urban class to gain greater representation in the Parliament.

The Nationalist and the Hope Party took part in a Gerenian election for the second time in their history.

In Maremedres, the Communist Party of Maremedres had been founded. Many Socialists and Populars joined the party, making it the biggest one in the province. It was the first communist experience in Gerenia.

After the poor results in the 2012 election, the Conservative Party was dissolved, and did not contest the election.

Presidential election

The only candidate who ran for the position of President was Gerald Ruze, of the Independent Party. The other party leaders decided to compete for provincial and parliamentary positions, as they focused in the National Assembly election.

Ruze assumed for a second term on 16 July 2013.

Provincial elections

The provincial elections were separated from the parliamentary election; it is to say, electors had to cast one vote for Governor of their province, and another one for representatives of both the National and the Higher Assembly.
