|Alaskan general election, 2010|
|May 12, 2010|
|First party||Second party||Third party|
Alaskan general election of 2010 was held on May 12th, 2010. Control of the Duma shifted from control of the Conservatives, led by Vyacheslav Gorokin as the chosen successor for Premier Vladimir Putin, to the Center Coalition's Svetlana Karalova. With the Center Coalition winning total control of the Duma for the first time since its 2002 formation, this was viewed as an aligning election by many in Alaska. With the 62-seat net gain for the Center Coalition, driven almost entirely by gains by the Moderate Party, the election was the biggest landslide since the 1994 Constitutional reforms. The 56-seat loss by the Conservative Coalition was the second-biggest loss in the coalition's history, and the loss of 17 seats by the Industrial Party and 14 seats by the Christian Party marked the two largest election losses by those parties in their history.

The Conservative Coalition will have 141 seats, a loss of 56. The Liberal Coalition held on to a surprising number of seats, only losing a net of six seats to a new total of 57 seats.
