Compromise of 1867

Legislative elections to elect the members of the eight Imperial Council were held in 1891 in Cisleithania, the northern and western ("Austrian") crown lands of Austria-Hungary. These elections were the last to occur in Cisleithania before the Badeni electoral reform, which drastically increased male suffrage.[1]

Results

The elections were held according to the curia arrangement that was instituted in 1873 to complement the implementation of direct elections.[2] Voters were classified according to their status and wealth into four curiae:

  1. Landowners
  2. Trade and industry chambers
  3. Large and medium farmers
  4. Male city residents who were annually paying at least 5 guilders worth of taxes

Voting took place in 1891. The results gave a strong result for the German Liberal and Constitutional Party, obtaining 32.81% of the vote, and their allies, the Constitutional Landowners.
