A general election was held on Saturday, 20 October 1871 to determine the members of the 10th National Parliament of the Kingdom of Craftia. The centre-right Kuomintang government, led by Prime Minister Sun Zhengfeng, defeated the opposition centrist Liberal Party, led by Opposition Leader Bao Huangpu.
The Kuomintang completely lost its majority from the previous election and was reduced to exactly half of the seats in parliament. Additionally, it failed to win a plurality of the popular vote, narrowly losing to the Liberal Party. The Liberals were less than two seats from toppling a single-term government, a surprise considering their dismal performance just 3 years before. The incumbent Kuomintang government was only able to form a minority government after securing confidence and supply from the Democrats, who won their first seat. This arrangement collapsed less than a year later with another election leading to the massive defeat of the Kuomintang by the Liberals.
