TBD

A special election to the Alcenian House of Commons for Keiwasta's 1st congressional riding will be held on February 4, 2020, following the death of representative and Praetor of Congress James K. Brand on December 17, 2019. Primaries for the Conservative Democratic and Social Republican parties will be held on January 14, 2020 and the New Labor Party will hold its primary on January 17. A total of eight candidates have declared their intentions to seek their party's respective nominations. This will be the first election where the New Labor Party has fielded candidates for federal office since the party's formation in February 2019. The winner of the election will serve out the remainder of Brand's term, set to expire January 3, 2021. This means there will be a second election nine months later on November 3, 2020.

The riding is one of two that represent the city of Burkabe, the capital of Keiwasta.
