The 2021 Aduraszna General Election to determine the composition of the Aszar Chamber of Representatives was held on 7 November 2021, the maximum of 256 Traditional Vaaran Calendar weeks (which are 6 days each, for a total of 1536 days) after the previous election. Voters elected 320 members to the Chamber under a first-past-the-post voting system. Concurrently, they will also vote for 24 senators to the Federal Office of Aduraszna through Hare-Clark ranked voting.
At the 2017 election, the right-wing ReNDaF, led by Kasran Felaits, lost 22 seats but retained a slim majority in the Chamber. In 2018, a leadership spill led to a change of party leader (and therefore, prime minister), to moderate Harun Lunsdzhura.
The election was held in the wake of the 7-11 tsunami, in which the government was widely criticised for its inability to properly deal with the aftermath and recovery, as well as several allegations of corruption and misuse of foreign financial aid. Much credit was given to trade unionist movement Solidarity, which organised the grassroots aid and is widely considered to have contributed the most to the tsunami response.
The election saw both major parties lose dozens of seats, particularly by ReNDaF, who lost 42 of their 46 seats on the south coast of Aduraszna, including that of the prime minister, Harun Lunsdzhura. Former ReNDaF prime ministers Voltschesrisz Ankir and Kasran Felaits also lost their seats, along with half of the Lunsdzhura Ministry.
Negotiations for a AK/ER-Solidarity coalition government took five days, and President Nakhas Tsirun signed Te'a Skárun's ministry into office on November 13th.
