Constituent Assembly elections were held in the Democratic Republic of Georgia between 14 and 16 February 1919.[1] The electoral system used was party-list proportional representation using the D'Hondt method in a single nationwide district.[2] The result was a victory for the Social Democratic Labour Party of Georgia, which won 81% of the vote, and 109 of the 130 seats. In by-elections held in spring, they lost four seats and the Armenian Party in Georgia - Dashnaktsitiuni and the Georgian National Party both won seats.[3]

Following the election, the Constituent Assembly approved and ratified the Act of Independence on 12 March.[4]
