A federal election was held on Saturday, 12 September 1998 to elect the members of the 5th Parliament of Craftia. The incumbent centre-left National United Party government, led by Prime Minister Peter McDonald, was heavily defeated by the opposition centre-right Craftian Conservative Party, led by Opposition Leader Alexander Lee, after a single term in office.

The Conservative Party won a sweeping 17% and 13-seat swing, giving it a majority in parliament, thus bypassing the coalition forming process completely. The Conservatives' 4-seat majority and 55.68% of the popular vote is both the highest proportion of seats and popular vote ever won by a single party in Craftia's post-independence history. It was also the first of three occasions where a single party formed a majority government since 1987, the others being 2019 and 2028.
