Tunisian Presidential Election 2019 Voting Date: 13 October 2019 

Presidential elections were held in Tunisia on 15 September 2019, the second direct vote for the presidency since the 2011 revolution. The elections had originally been planned for 17 and 24 November, but were brought forward after the death of incumbent president Beji Caid Essebsi on 25 July to ensure that a new president would take office within 90 days, as required by the constitution.

As no candidate received a majority of the vote in the first round, a runoff will be held on 13 October between the top two candidates, Kaïs Saïed and Nabil Karoui.

The Electoral System of Tunisia

The President of Tunisia is directly elected by universal suffrage using the two-round system. If no candidate receives a majority of the vote in the first round, a second round is held between the top two candidates. Candidates must be at least 35 years old on the day of filing for candidacy, and are also required to be Muslim. Candidates must have Tunisian citizenship, and are required give up any other citizenship they hold.

Electoral reform controversy

On 18 June 2019, the Assembly of Representatives passed amendments to the country's electoral law, accused by some of blocking candidates like Nabil Karoui and Olfa Terras from being eligible to run in the election. The amendments prohibited those with a criminal record, as well as those who run charitable organizations or received foreign funding for political advertising in the year preceding an election. On 25 June, members of Nidaa Tounes and the Popular Front filed a motion in the Assembly of Representatives, calling the move unconstitutional.

The Electoral system of Botswana

The 63 members of the National Assembly consisted of 57 MPs elected in single-member constituencies by first-past-the-post, four members appointed by the governing party, and two ex-officio members (the President and the Attorney General).

Voters are required to be Botswana citizens at least 18 years old who had been resident in the country for at least 12 months prior to voter registration. People declared insane, holding dual citizenship, under a death sentence, convicted of an electoral offence or imprisoned for at least six months are not allowed to vote. Candidates need to be Botswana citizens at least 21 years old, without an undischarged bankruptcy and be able to speak and read English sufficiently well to take part in parliamentary proceedings.

Several proposed amendments to the Electoral Law, including the introduction of electronic voting and an increase in nomination fees, were dropped in September 2018.

Tunisian Parliamentary Election Date: 6 October 2019 

Parliamentary elections are scheduled to take place in Tunisia on 6 October 2019.

Prior to the revolution, elections were held every five to six years and elected both the president and members of both legislative branches. Following the revolution, elections were held for a Constituent Assembly to decide on a new constitution for Tunisia.

From 1956 to 2011, the government and the Constitutional Democratic Rally—originally known as the Neo Destour (1934-1964) and the Socialist Destourian Party (1964-1988)–were effectively one. Although Tunisia was only formally a one-party state from 1963 to 1981, the opposition was usually barely tolerated. With the revolution, several parties have emerged. While there are two numerically major parties–Nidaa Tounes and the Ennahda Movement—no one party has a realistic chance of governing alone.

Seats were elected by party-list proportional representation, using the largest remainder method.

Mauritanian Presidential Election 2019 Date: 22 June 2019 

Presidential elections will be held in Mauritania on 22 June 2019, with a second round planned for 6 July if no candidate receives more than 50% of the vote.

Mauritania elects on national level a head of state – the president – and a legislature. Prior to 2006, the president was elected for a six-year term by the people, with no term limits; following the constitutional referendum of June 2006, presidential terms are now five years, with a two-term limit and a maximum age limit of 75. The Parliament (Barlamane/Parlement) has one chamber. The National Assembly (Al Jamiya al-Wataniyah/Assemblée Nationale) has 81 members, elected for a five-year term in single-seat constituencies.

3. Mauritania: Presidential candidates must commit to protecting human rights.

The electoral system of Mauritania

Since the adoption of its constitution on July 20, 1991, the Islamic Republic of Mauritania has passed a complete legal package on electoral issues. The main steps of the Mauritanian electoral system will be reviewed below.

The various laws that govern presidential, legislative and local elections are based on a number of principles. These principles include: (1) the universality and secret nature of the ballot; (2) the importance of the role of political parties, “which contributes to the shaping and expression of people’s political will”; and (3) the absolute equality of all citizens involved in political competitions. The sole limit of these principles is those (constraints) determined by the Constitution: the respect of democratic principles, national sovereignty, territorial integrity, and the national unity of the Republic of Mauritania.

For an electoral system, presidential elections utilize a single plurality with runoff, while the legislative and local elections are decided through the use of a proportional system with a list of candidates where the population density is high enough. The proportional system is used in such cases to enable the opposition, as well as small parties, to gain seats in the institutions that represent all Mauritanians.

The new National Independent Elections Commission (CENI) was sworn in by the Supreme Court on 4 April 2019 despite protests by segments of the opposition regarding its impartiality. On 5 April, the Coordination des Partis Politiques pour la Défense de la Constitution (CPDC) comprising a dozen opposition parties controlling 31 seats in the 188-seat National Assembly rejected the swearing-in, calling it "illegally constituted, null and void and of no effect."

South African General Election 2019 Date: 8 May 2019 

General elections will be held in South Africa on 8 May 2019 to elect a new National Assembly and provincial legislatures in each province. They will be the sixth elections held since the end of apartheid in 1994 and will determine who will become the next President of South Africa.

Incumbent President Cyril Ramaphosa will lead the ruling African National Congress, with the party attempting to retain its majority status and secure Ramaphosa a full term in office as president; his predecessor, Jacob Zuma, resigned from office on 14 February 2018 and was already ineligible for a third term in office as the South African Constitution limits a president to serve a maximum of two five-year terms.

South Africa has a parliamentary system of government; the National Assembly consists of 400 members elected by closed-list proportional representation. Two hundred members are elected from national party lists; the other 200 are elected from provincial party lists in each of the nine provinces. The President of South Africa is elected by the National Assembly after the election.

The provincial legislatures, which vary in size from 30 to 80 members, are also elected by proportional representation with closed lists. The premiers of each province will be elected by the respective provincial legislatures.

The National Council of Provinces (NCOP) consists of 90 members, ten elected by each provincial legislature. The NCOP members will be elected by the provincial legislatures in proportion to the party makeup of the legislatures.
