The last elections to be held in the Reichstag. The Nazis did not hold a clear majority. The Communists were expected to win around 100 seats of 600, but Göring ensured their influence was squashed a few days earlier following the fire in the Reichstag for which they were blamed. The Nazi's ploy worked and they received 44 percent of the vote. This gave them enough support in the Reichstag, with the Communists silenced or in prison to introduce the Enabling Act on 23 March.
