Federal Election was held on Saturday. 21 June 2036 to determine the members of the 52nd Australian Parliament. The election was won by the centre-left Labor Party led by incumbent Prime Minister Tony Burke against the opposition parties; the centre-right Liberal Nationals led by Verity Barton and the far-right Australian Nationalists, led by Jim Saleam.

The election victory for the Burke government was its 6th consecutive win against the opposition parties whose failure to unite against Labor led to Burke's constant victories. It was, however, going to be the Prime Ministers last, as following a major heart attack on 2 March 2038, he would go onto retire from politics.

The same too, occurred with the Australian Nationalist Party, who officially registered under the leadership of 78 year old (81 by the 2036 campaign season) Jim Saleam on 24 November 2033 following that years election. During the time with the leader, Saleam managed to guide the party to a major electoral victory in '36. However, in a manner similar to Burke's, Saleam would go onto retire from politics in early 2037, diagnosed with prostate cancer.
