The 8th Model Northern Ireland Assembly Election was held on 5 June 2020. It was the twelfth election since the Assembly was re-established in 1998. This election resulted in a significant shakeup in the composition of the assembly, with two of the three parties in the Executive Office being replaced. LPNI rose to become the largest party, ensuring that the Other grouping would remain largest and claiming the position of First Minister. The Ulster Unionists remained the sole major Unionist party, though suffered a drop in vote share. The position of nationalist EO representative was notably highly contested, as the SDLP and the IPP received 12 seats each. By virtue of gaining more first preference votes, the SDLP was subsequently entitled to the position.
