The next Northern Territory general election to be held on 27 August 2016[1] will elect members of the Legislative Assembly in the unicameral Northern Territory Parliament. All 25 seats in the Legislative Assembly whose current members were elected at the 2012 election will become vacant. Like the Australian House of Representatives, members are elected through full-preference instant-runoff voting in single-member electorates. The election will be conducted by the Northern Territory Electoral Commission, an independent body answerable to Parliament.
