The Chawosaurian Legislative Elections of 1909 were held on December 31, 1909. The Chawosaurian faction of the Conservative Party from the United Kingdom, led by Jonathan Sidney MacCarthy, regained their majority status lost in the 1905 legislative elections to the Chawosaurian faction of the Liberal Party UK. Gaining a net gain of 99 seats, and losing the popular vote by 63,621,118 points to the two liberal parties.

Selahattin Bedrosian, an Ottoman Chawosaurian, the most recent Muslim member of the Palace, was MacCarthy's bitter enemy because of his race, his religion, and his non-Western culture.

Malcolm Lyons MacKenzie Wilson was replaced as leader of the Chawosaurian caucus of the British Conservative Party because of Wilson's embarrassing losses in the 1905 legislative elections and in the 1906 U.K. general elections, and the caucus chose the Right-Wing Populist, Jonathan Sidney MacCarthy.

Under MacCarthy's leadership, the U.K. Conservative Party regained control of the Palace from the two Liberal Parties of both Canada and Britain, winning 316 seats to the Liberals' 284. MacCarthy used white supremacy to bring out the white voters of Chawosauria to vote while non-whites were ineffective in their voting.

The elections were a victory for populists from both sides, and a defeat for the establishment, this whole election cycle saw the election of the new rising star in Bucharest District, Jonathan Dragan Bismarck XVII gained national attention when he won an upset victory over the Social Democrat Pete Braescu, who was the frontrunner of the race, and he became labeled as "Chawosauria's Darling", Bismarck's win was considered a decisive victory for populism. It was mostly a win for right-wing populists more than it was for left-wing populists though.

The Conservative Party UK regained control of the House of Commons, the House of Lords, and the House of Representatives, and expanded their majority in the Senate. The Liberals won the popular vote, and MacCarthy becomes the Leader of the Opposition.
