Gabonese Parliament Election Date: 27 October 2018
Legislative elections were held in Gabon in 2018 along with municipal elections; the first round was held on 6 October and the second round will take place on 27 October.
Parliamentary elections are normally held every five years, and the previous elections were held in December 2011. The elections were set for 27 December 2016, before being postponed until 29 July 2017 and then April 2018 to enable political dialogue and allegedly due to a shortage of funds. However, the elections were not held on 28 April 2018, without the government announcing a report or asking the Constitutional Council for another delay. This meant that the term of the National Assembly had legally expired.As a result, the Constitutional Court dissolved the National Assembly and temporarily reassigned its powers to the Senate (which was still legally constituted), and dismissed Prime Minister Emmanuel Issoze-Ngondet.
