The 2097 Australian Federal Election was a parliamentary election staged to determine the members of the 2097-2100 parliament, and was won by the incumbent Democratic/Progressive coalition, led by Tahlia Hanigan.

Held almost two years following the assassination of Jackson O'Meara, the Coalition was forced by the Nationalists to elect the unpopular Tahlia Hanigan as leader of the Democratic party to retain their confidence in the government.

As a result, the Nationalists saw a large up sweep in upper and lower house seats, as well as ensuring that the Coalition and Labor parties be forced into a hung parliament (the first in 60 years). As a result, the Coalition was forced to maintain Hanigan as their leader, if only to ensure the Nationalist confidence and supply.
