politics and government of
Parliamentary elections were held in Andorra on 10 December 1989, with a second round of voting on 17 December. Following the elections, Òscar Ribas Reig became Prime Minister, elected on 12 January 1990 by a vote of 23−5.
All 28 seats of the General Council were up for election. Each parish formed a constituency, electing four members each. Members of the Parliament were elected using a two-round plurality voting system. The voting age was 18 years old.
As political parties were not legalised until 1993, all candidates ran as independents, although press and newspapers considered some candidates to be officialist (supporting Pintat government) or opponents.

Although continuist and officialist candidates won the elections in terms of seats, in the most populated parishes (Andorra la Vella and Escaldes-Engordany), the opposition candidates received more votes. This was seen as a decrease of support of Pintat's policies and Òscar Ribas Reig was elected Prime Minister of Andorra.
