The Alexandrian general election of 2005 was held on Thursday, November 3, 2005, five years after the previous election on 3 November 2000, to elect 624 Deputies to the unicameral legislature, the National Assembly. The Conservative Party, led by Fernando Dev, won the largest number of votes and seats, but still fell 16 seats short of obtaining a majority. This resulted in a hung Assembly where no party was able to command a majority. The Freedom and Democracy Party entered into a confidence and supply agreement with the Conservatives and Fernando Dev became First Consul. Turnout for this election was higher than the previous election, 61.5%.

The Social Democratic Alliance fought the election under the leadership of a new First Consul, Roberto Dolé, elected by the Social Democratic Alliance to succeed Jean Carmicheal who resigned two months before the election. The SDA was plagued by a massive corruption scandal exposed by Les Yeux in which two-thirds of Cabinet members were making money off government contracts.

The election saw a sharp swing from the SDA to the Greens, with the Greens increasing their seats from 1 to 8.

The election was broadcast live on ABC, and presented by Bernat Croix, Phillippe Anglars, and Felisa Gautier.
