Last Legislative election:

  • The last legislative elections were held in 2002. Elections had been scheduled to take place in 2007, but the term of the National Assembly was increased due to delays caused by a general strike and with issues in setting up the Independent National Electoral Commission (CENI). The election has subsequently been repeatedly delayed due to various problems, including funding, issues over voter registration, and a military coup d'etat. In July 2013, the UN brokered a compromise between the government and the opposition, paving the way for the election to occur.
