The Sanama federal election, 1682 was the first midterm election in Sanama, following the election of Keysa Nur Pinito Caprici as President in 1679. During the time since the last election, the country saw the successful introduction of a national currency, the rilha, the accession of Sanama to the Raspur Pact, a devastating earthquake in the southeast, the Verionian-Raspur War, the two-year occupation of western Shimmerspring, and an expanding and booming economy. It also saw the modernisation and expansion of the Sanaman Navy. In late 1681, the Northern League withdrew from government over the continued occupation of western Shimmerspring, and was replaced by the Nationalist & Humanist Party. Throughout this period, the President enjoyed growing support and an approval rating between 50 and 65 percent. This helped the ruling coalition stay in power with an increased share of seats in the Llusan, and Tanilo Lhayi to hold on to his position as Chancellor.
