The Vazian Federal Election of 2019 was held on the 30th June 2019. It was held along with the presidential and state elections. This election was held after the collapse of the governing RSP-Liberal coalition due to policy disagreements and 19 RSP MPs defecting to the Progressives.

Polling showed at the start of the campaign that the RSP would lose their majority and that a hung parliament would be returned. After some time it became apparent that the Progressive Alliance could get an overall majority although pundits said it was highly improbable.

Exit Poll

Independent polling firms created an exit poll on the behalf of the VBC and Channel 2 that was revealed at the time of poll closings across the nation at 11pm. The poll predicted that the Progressive Alliance would gain seats and have a landslide majority of 79. The poll showed the collapse of the ruling coalition government which included the Liberal Party and Rising Sun party. It also showed that the New Order Party had failed to make any gains and losing 71 of its seats and that the Confederalist Party would lose all but one of their seats. People Before Profit and the Green Party would also gain more ground. With Exit Poll result, it was assumed per Forward Alliance rules that a coalition government would be formed between the Progressives, Greens and People Before Profit which would have a majority of 157.

Following results being reported in several North and Lake state constituencies, it became apparent that the exit poll had been inaccurate in its measure of support for the Progressive Alliance. Actual results saw the Progressive Alliance swept to power with a majority of 137.

Aftermath

At 8am the day after the election outgoing Prime Minister North conceded the election and resigned the premiership. He told his supporters that politics has been "changed beyond recognition" and later added that he believed that both RSP and New Order parties had been "incompetent". Soon after North's resignation Micheal Brudia the now former governor of Brudia was summoned to the Presidential Palace where he was inaugurated as President. His first act was to assemble the 7th Parliament and move for the election of a new Prime Minister. At Midday the President Brudia officially appointed Racheal Povaz as Prime Minister.
