A Federal Election was held on 8 September to determine the members of the 70th Australian Parliament. The incumbent Progressive/Democratic Coalition won against the opposition Labor and Australian Nationalist party, increasing their majority by 23 seats.

Prior to the election, the Democratic Party voted to remove Howard Knights from power, and replace him with the 75 year old Jordan McInnes as per a deal to intice 10 Labor members to defect. However, his advanced age and poor health left him unelectable, and as a result, Logan Macdowell, leader of the smaller party within the Coalition was chosen as Prime Minister until McInnes resigned his position following a stroke in 2086, and the election of David Ballard as leader of the Democratic party.
