The previous elections in 2013 saw the Patriotic Union lose five seats and their majority in the Landtag. The Progressive Citizens' Party also lost a seat, but became the governing party in part due to the entry of The Independents, a new party that won four seats.
The 2013 elections marked the first time that four parties had won seats in the Landtag, with suggestions that protest voting against austerity policies or reduced partisanship amongst voters may have been factors.
