Parliamentary elections were held in Portugal on 11 May 1919.[1] The three main parties that boycotted the 1918 elections returned to contest the elections. The result was a victory for the Democratic Party, which won 86 of the 163 seats in the House of Representatives and 36 of the 71 seats in the Senate.[2][3]
