The polling booths have been closed and the ballots have been counted. Each county tallied up their votes and sent the data to the National Election Commission.

The Nationalist Party's members have gained a plurality in the Diet, though many Kurlanders preferred not to vote for someone with a party affiliation, casting ballots instead for Independents. Several effective smear campaigns by the NPK and FPO nullified early NRP gains, in some cases swinging the result at the last moment.

Chancellor Diethelm Tiedemann also lost his office to a Nationalist Party member, Sigimund Schr├Ąder, the latter having won 56% of the popular vote.

Duke Alaric I shall retain the crown and oversee the transition from a Provisional government to the official government.
