1929 Northern Ireland general election
The 1929 Northern Ireland general election was held on 22 May 1929. Like all previous elections to the Parliament of Northern Ireland, it produced a large majority for the Ulster Unionist Party. It was the first held after the abolition of proportional representation and the redrawing of electoral boundaries to create single-seat constituencies. As with the rest of the United Kingdom, this has made it more difficult for independent and minor party candidates to win seats, leading to the Irish ethnic group to have minimal representation.
All 52 seats to the House of Commons of Northern Ireland
27 seats were needed for a majority
