The 2013 Ostrobian federal election of 2013 on 8 September 2013 elected the 41st Parliament of the Ostrobian Federation and the 26th Prime Minister of Ostrobia. The centre-right Union of Conservative Parties led by Jo Lutz defeated the incumbent centre-left Social Democratic Party lead of then Prime Minister Kevin Hill by a 17-seat 3.6 percentage point two-party swing. The Social Democratic Party had been in government since the  the 2009 Federal Election. Lutz was sworn in by the King of Ostrobia, HM Sabjeke III of Ostrobia on 18 September 2013 along with the Lutz cabinet and the members of the House of Representives. The new senators were sworn in on 7 June 2014, with their six-year terms commencing on the following day.

Voting in Ostrobian federal elections has been compulsory since 1945 after the fall of military dictator Benjamin Kazar and the reinstallation of the monarchy. For the House of Representatives, a preferential ballot system has been in use since 1916, in single member seats. For the Senate - the proportionally representative upper house - a single transferable vote system has been in use since 1949, with an optional group voting tickets since 1981
