The 2018 Kyrloth General Election was held in Kyrloth on Monday 5 March 2018, to elect 144 members to the House of Debate. The election resulted in a hung parliament, with both the Resource Control Board and Council of Scientists winning 49 seats. This proved to not be enough for any stable coalition deal, until the arrest of the eight Spiritualist MPs at the Zlovskavaar-Atiland Protests, reducing the majority threshold to 69 and allowing a Council / Guild coalition to be formed.

Elections in Kyrloth are based on a Mixed-Member Proportional system, where two thirds (96) of the seats are elected by first-past-the-post on a constituency basis, and the other third (48) of seats are allocated by the Quota method such that the composition of the House of Debate matches the party vote as closely as possible.
