The 20 members of the Assembly are elected by two methods; 14 are elected from single-member consistencies and six are elected from a single nationwide constituency. Both types of seat use first-past-the-post voting.
A total of 54 candidates contested the elections, of which 26 contested the six common roll seats. Three candidates – Mona Ainuu in Tuapa, Enetama Lipitoa in Namukulu and Talaititama Talaiti in Vaiea – were elected unopposed. One of the candidates was former New Zealand MP and mayor of Wellington Mark Blumsky.
The Premier Toke Talagi, in office for the previous twelve years, lost his seat, finishing tenth in the six-seat common roll constituency. Five of the elected members were new to the Assembly. After a draw in Mutalau, the result was decided by a coin toss.
