466 seats in the Volkskammer
|Turnout||98.4% 0.1 pp|
Legislative elections were held in East Germany on 17 October 1954. It was the second election to the Volkskammer, which had 466 deputies, 66 of whom represented East Berlin and were not directly elected) in total; due to the four-power status of the city of Berlin, the city's deputies were indirectly appointed by the East Berlin magistrate.
As the country was a de facto one-party state, voters were presented with a single-list of candidates from the National Front, dominated by the Communist Socialist Unity Party of Germany, which they could vote for or against. The election did not affect the strength of the factions, whose size was determined in advance. The election count was nominally allowed to be publicly monitored, but in practice this did not happen for fear of repression.
The list received the approval of 99.46% of voters, with turnout reported to be 98.5%.
