Ethiopian general election Dates 2020
Ethiopian general election ​ Date: August 29, 2020​ 

General elections will be held in Ethiopia on 29 August 2020 to elect officials to the House of Peoples' Representatives. Regional and council elections will also be held at the same time around the country.


Ethiopian general election dates and Voting Live 2020 

The Ethiopian People's Revolutionary Democratic Front, the political coalition which had dominated Ethiopian politics since the overthrow of the Derg regime in 1991, was dissolved on 1 December 2019. Most of its member parties were merged into the Prosperity Party, which inherited the EPRDF's role as the governing party. The last leader of the EPRDF, Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, became the first leader of the new party. The Tigray People's Liberation Front was the only constituent party that did not take part in the merger and will participate in the elections as a separate party.


The Electoral system of Ethiopian

At the federal level, Ethiopia elects a legislature. The Federal Parliamentary Assembly has two chambers: the Council of People's Representatives (Yehizbtewekayoch Mekir Bet) with not more than 550 members as per the constitution but actually nearly 547 members, elected for five-year terms in single-seat constituencies; and the Council of the Federation (Yefedereshn Mekir Bet) with 117 members, one each from the 22 minority nationalities, and one from each professional sector of its remaining nationalities, designated by the regional councils, which may elect them themselves or through popular elections.

Ethiopia is a dominant-party state in that a coalition, the Prosperity Party, dominates politics. Opposition parties are allowed, and while hypothetically capable of winning an election according to the Ethiopian political system, in practice the party is incapable of losing an election.

Elections were first held in Ethiopia under the provisions of the current constitution in June 1994 to elect the membership of local governments; general elections have since been held in 1995, 2000, 2005, 2010 and 2015.

Presidential elections in Malawi will be held on 2 July 2020, having originally been scheduled for 19 May. They follow the annulment of the results of the 2019 presidential elections.


Malawian presidential election dates and Voting Live 2020 

In the May 2019 general elections, incumbent President Peter Mutharika of the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) was re-elected with 39% of the vote, defeating Lazarus Chakwera of the Malawi Congress Party (35%) and Saulos Chilima of the United Transformation Movement (20%). The DPP also remained the largest party in the National Assembly, winning 62 of the 193 seats. However, the presidential election was challenged in court by Chakwera and Chilima, and in February 2020 the Constitutional Court annulled the presidential election results, citing evidence of irregularities, and ordered fresh elections be held within 150 days.

Parliament passed the Parliamentary and Presidential Elections Act (PPEA) Amendment Bill on 24 February, setting 19 May as the date for the new presidential elections and extending the terms of MPs and local councillors by one year to allow for harmonised presidential, parliamentary and local elections in 2025. In March the Malawi Electoral Commission announced a new election date, 2 July, one day before the 150-day limit to hold elections set by the Constitutional Court.


The Electoral system of Malawian

As a result of the Constitutional Court ruling, the President of Malawi will be elected using the two-round system, replacing the former first-past-the-post system used in 2019.

Burundian general election ​ Date: May 20, 2020​ 

General elections will be held in Burundi on 20 May 2020 to elect both the president and the National Assembly.


Burundian general election  dates and Voting Live 2020 

Incumbent President Pierre Nkurunziza, in power since 2005, announced in December 2018 that he would not contest the elections.[6] In response, the main opposition alliance, CNARED, announced that they would return from exile in Belgium to participate in the elections for the first time since 2005.


The Electoral system of Burundian

The president is elected using the two-round system. If no candidate receives a majority of the vote in the first round, a second-round will be held. 100 members of the National Assembly are elected from 18 multi-member constituencies based on the provinces using the closed-list proportional representation system. Seats are allocated using the d'Hondt method with a national 2% electoral threshold. A further three members of the Twa ethnic group are appointed, and more members are co-opted to ensure a 60-40 split between Hutus and Tutsis, and a 30% quota for female MPs.

The 39-seat Senate consists of 36 indirectly-elected members and three appointed Twa representatives. The 36 indirectly-elected members are elected from 18 two-seat constituencies based on the provinces, with each province electing one Hutu and one Tutsi member. The elections are held using a three-round system, in which a candidate must receive a supermajority (two-thirds) of the vote in the first and second round to be elected; if the threshold is not crossed, a third round of voting is held featuring the top two candidates.

US Senate election​ Date: November 3, 2020​ 

The 2020 United States Senate elections will be held on November 3, 2020, with the 33 Class 2 seats of the Senate being contested in regular elections. The winners will be elected to six-year terms extending from January 3, 2021, until January 3, 2027.[3] Additionally, there will also be two special elections: one special election in Arizona to fill the vacancy created by the death of John McCain in 2018 and one in Georgia following the resignation of Johnny Isakson at the end of 2019.


US Senate election dates and Voting Live 2020 

In the 2014 United States Senate elections (the last regularly-scheduled elections for Class 2 Senate seats), the Republicans won a net gain of nine seats from the Democrats and gained a majority in the Senate. Republicans defended that majority in 2016 and 2018, and held 53 Senate seats following the 2018 elections. Democrats held 45 seats after the 2018 elections, while independents caucusing with the Democratic Party held two seats.

Including the special elections in Arizona and Georgia, Republicans will be defending 23 seats in 2020, while the Democratic Party will be defending 12 seats. Democrats will need to pick up three or four seats to gain a majority in the Senate, depending on which party wins control of the vice presidency.


The Electoral system of US

The United States Senate is the upper chamber of the United States Congress, which, along with the United States House of Representatives—the lower chamber—constitutes the legislature of the United States. The Senate chamber is located in the north wing of the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C.

The composition and powers of the Senate are established by Article One of the United States Constitution.[1] The Senate is composed of senators, each of whom represents a single state in its entirety. Each state, regardless of its population size, is equally represented by two senators who serve staggered terms of six years. There being at present 50 states in the Union, there are currently 100 senators. From 1789 to 1913, senators were appointed by legislatures of the states they represented; they are now elected by popular vote, following the ratification of the Seventeenth Amendment in 1913.

The Electoral system of Tennessee

The term electoral system can refer to the method by which elections are conducted (e.g., whether officials are elected in single-winner versus multi-winner systems) or the method by which votes are tallied to determine the outcome of an election (e.g., plurality systems, majority systems, ranked-choice voting systems, etc.). In the United States, most federal and state-level officials are elected via plurality vote in single-winner contests, although some jurisdictions (e.g., cities, school boards, etc.) employ alternative electoral systems.

HIGHLIGHTS

·  In Tennesee, state representatives and state senators are elected in single-winner contests via plurality vote.

·  The governor and lieutenant governor are also elected in single-winner contests via plurality vote. The same is true for United States Senators and United States Representatives.
