The Mercury general election of 2013 was held in June 2013 to elect the second Mercurian Parliament. Voting took place in 240 constituencies, each electing one representative, using the instant-runoff voting system.

Overview

This was the first general election since Mercury's claims of Nova England and Lucerne. The National Party held a comfortable majority after the previous election. Three parties contested 236 out of the 240 seats, excluding those of the Speaker, Deputy Speaker and two seats in Lucerne. Independent England, a party set up by Charles Tudor after the controversial blocking of The Name Act (2013) by the Mercurian Parliament, was a nationalist party seeking to gain Nova English independence.
