According to the Constitution, the Parliament of Singapore's maximum term is five years from the date of the first sitting of Parliament following a general election, after which it is dissolved by operation of law. However, the Prime Minister may advise the President to dissolve Parliament before the five-year period is up, which might be happening in April, May or September 2020. A general election must be held within three months after a dissolution of Parliament. Singapore uses the first-past-the-post system of election, and voting is mandatory for all Singaporeans aged at least 21. Elections are conducted by the Elections Department, which is under the Prime Minister's Office.


The Electoral system of Singapore

There are currently two types of elections in Singapore: parliamentary and presidential elections. According to the constitution of Singapore general elections for parliament must be conducted within 3 months of the dissolution of parliament, which has a maximum term of 5 years from the first sitting of parliament, and presidential elections are conducted every 6 years.

The parliament of Singapore is unicameral with 89 seats. Since the legislative assembly election in 1959, the People's Action Party has had an overwhelming majority, and for nearly two decades was the only party to win any seats, and has always formed the government of Singapore.

The 2020 Hong Kong Legislative Council election is scheduled in September 2020 for the 7th Legislative Council of Hong Kong (LegCo). A total of 70 members, 35 from geographical constituencies (GCs) and 35 from functional constituencies (FCs), will be returned.


Hong Kong legislative election dates and Voting Live 2020 

In February 2020, a confidential report by Chief Executive Carrie Lam to the central government was obtained by Apple Daily. In the report, Lam stated her attempt to win back the public trust and support by effectively handling the coronavirus outbreak which would serve as a political turnaround for the coming election. She also blamed the sharp decline of the public trust in government and its difficulties on handling the crisis on the smears, rumours, divisions and radicalisation by the opposition and radical netizens. Nevertheless, she also slammed the pro-government parties for not supporting her wholeheartedly, claiming being personal attacked by the pro-government figures for their own electoral purpose and criticising Executive Councillors for their poor performance. A Hong Kong Public Opinion Research Institute survey in late January found 75 per cent of respondents dissatisfied with the government's response to the outbreak, while Lam's support rating sunk to nine per cent in late February, the lowest on record for any leader.


The Electoral system of Hong Kong

The 35 geographical seats and seats of the Legislative Council are returned by proportional representation using the largest remainder method and the Hare quota in each of five constituencies. This system encourages and sustains multiple political parties.

The electoral system of India

All 543 elected MPs will be elected from single-member constituencies using first-past-the-post voting. The President of India nominates an additional two members from the Anglo-Indian community if he believes the community is under-represented.

Eligible voters must be Indian citizens, 18 or older, an ordinary resident of the polling area of the constituency and possess a valid voter identification card issued by the Election Commission of India. Some people convicted of electoral or other offences are barred from voting.

The elections are being held on schedule and per the constitution of India that mandates parliamentary elections once every five years. The details of the elections were announced by Election Commission of India (ECI) on 10 March 2019, after which Model Code of Conduct regulations for the elections came into immediate effect.


India Parties and leaders

 

More than 50 parties are contesting these elections. Most of them are small with regional appeal. The main parties are the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Indian National Congress (INC). With the exception of 2014, no single party has won the majority of seats in the Lok Sabha since 1984, and therefore forming alliances is the norm in Indian elections. In the 2019 general election, there are four main national pre-poll alliances. They are the NDA headed by the BJP, the UPA headed by the INC, the grand alliance of regional parties, and the left front of Communist-leaning parties. Given the volatile nature of coalition politics in India, alliances may change during and after the election. 2019 General Election is the first time when BJP (437) is contesting more seats than Congress (423) in the Lok Sabha elections.

The INC has not formed an alliance in states where it is in direct contest with the BJP. These states include Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh. It has formed alliances with regional parties in Jammu and Kashmir, Bihar, Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Jharkhand, and Kerala. The party has not been able to form an alliance with other parties in Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal, Andhra Pradesh, Northeast, Delhi, Punjab, Haryana and Goa. 

Early in the campaign in January 2019, Mayawati (president of the Bahujan Samaj Party) and Akhilesh Yadav (president of the Samajwadi Party) announced an alliance to contest 76 seats out of the 80 in Uttar Pradesh and the alliance will not fight in four seats, namely Amethi and Rae Bareli which they left for Congress and another two for other political parties. The alliance did not include Congress, with Mayawati stating, "Including Congress in the alliance will hurt SP-BSP prospects as Congress's votes do not get transferred" and "the policies of both these parties [BJP and Congress] have been mostly the same". The alliance was the second of its kind with a similar coalition formed 25 years ago in 1993.

Cambodia  Parliament election Dates 2018

Cambodia  Parliament election Date: 29 July 2018

The previous election of 28 July 2013, saw the fourth consecutive victory of the Cambodian People's Party, gaining 68 seats of the National Assembly and the opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party occupying the rest of the 55 seats. Despite their huge gain in seats, the opposition denied the results and accused the ruling party of poll fraud. As a result, the CNRP boycotted parliament in September 2013 and vows not to enter parliament until a legitimate electoral reform. The disputed election results led to the outbreak of widespread anti-government protests.

The Royal Government of Cambodia organises the general elections on July 29, 2018, according to a decision signed by Prime Minister Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen on July 28, 2017.

Sunday July 29, 2018 will be the date for the sixth parliamentary election, it said.

Pakistan Presidential election Date: 31 October 2018

General elections were held in Pakistan on 25 July 2018 to elect the members of the 15th National Assembly and to the four Provincial Assemblies of Pakistan. Most of the opinion polls suggested an overall Pakistan Muslim League (N) lead with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf being the close second. There have been allegations of pre-poll rigging being conducted by the judiciary, the military and the intelligence agencies to sway the election results in favour of the PTI and against the PML (N).

PTI Party leader Imran Khan leads in early unofficial exit poll results, as his opposition alleges large-scale vote rigging.

1.Pakistan Election Results 2018 LIVE Updates: PTI's lead drops, ahead in 115 seats; PML-N leading in 64 seats, unofficial trends show.

2. Pakistan Election 2018: Over 8 lakh security personnel deployed as country reels under violence, rigging charges.


Electoral system of Pakistan

The 342 members of the National Assembly are elected by two methods in three categories; 272 are elected in single-member constituencies by first-past-the-post voting; 60 are reserved for females and 10 for ethnic and religious minority groups; both sets of reserved seats use proportional representation with a 5% electoral threshold. This proportional number, however, is based on the number of seats won rather than votes cast. To win a simple majority, a party would have to take 137 seats. For less distinguished and less fortunate people, who are interested in contesting election on any political party ticket, access to political leaders is very difficult.

General Elections 2018 was held under new delimitation of constituencies which was result of 2017 Census of Pakistan. As per the notification issued on 5 March 2018, the Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT) will have three constituencies, Punjab 141, Sindh 61, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa 39, Balochistan 16 and Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) will have 12 constituencies in the National Assembly.10.6 crore people are registered to vote for members of the National Assembly of Pakistan and four provincial Assemblies.

China Demographics Population Religion Percentage

The demographics of the People's Republic of China are identified by a large population with a relatively small youth division, China Demographics Population Religion Percentage 2017which was partially a result of China's one-child policy. China's population reached the billion mark in 1982.

China's population is 1.404 billion, the largest of any country in the world. According to the 2010 census, 91.51% of the population was Han Chinese, and 8.49% were minorities. China's population growth rate is only 0.47%, ranking 159th in the world. China conducted its sixth national population census on 1 November 2010.Unless otherwise indicated, the statistics on this page pertain to mainland China only; see also Demographics of Hong Kong and Demographics of Macau.

Internal migration in the People's Republic of China is one of the most extensive in the world according to the InternationalChina Demographics Population Religion Percentage 2017 Labour Organization. In fact, research done by Kam Wing Chan of the University of Washington suggests that "In the 30 years since 1979, China's urban population has grown by about 440 million to 622 million in 2009. Of the 440 million increase, about 340 million was attributable to net migration and urban reclassification. Even if only half of that increase was migration, the volume of rural-urban migration in such a short period is likely the largest in human history." Migrants in China are commonly members of a floating population, which refers primarily to migrants in China without local household registration status through the Chinese Hukou system. In general, rural-urban migrant workers are most excluded from local educational resources, citywide social welfare programs and many jobs because of their lack of hukou status.

In 2011 a total of 252.78 million migrant workers (an increase of 4.4% compared to 2010) existed in China. Out of these, migrant workers who left their hometown and worked in other provinces accounted for 158.63 million (an increase of 3.4% compared to 2010) and migrant workers who worked within their home provinces reached 94.15 million (an increase of 5.9% compared to 2010). Estimations are that Chinese cities will face an influx of another 243 million migrants by 2025, taking the urban population up to nearly 1 billion people. This population of migrants would represent "almost 40 percent of the total urban population," a number which is almost three times the current level.While it is often difficult to collect accurate statistical data on migrant floating populations, the number of migrants is undoubtedly quite large. “In China’s largest cities, for instance, it is often quoted that at least one out of every five persons is a migrant.” China's government influences the pattern of urbanization through the Hukou permanent residence registration system, land-sale policies, infrastructure investment, and the incentives offered to local government officials. The other factors influencing migration of people from rural provincial areas to large cities are employment, education, business opportunities and higher standard of living.

India is projected to be the world's most populous country by 2022, surpassing the population of China.India Demographics Population Religion Percentage 2017 During 1975-2010 the population doubled to 1,200 million. It is expected to become the first political entity in history to be home to more than 1.5 billion people by 2030, and its population is set to reach 1.7 billion by 2050. Its population growth rate is 1.2%, ranking 94th in the world in 2013. The Indian population reached the billion mark in 1998. India has more than 50% of its population below the age of 25 and more than 65% below the age of 35. It is expected that, in 2020, the average age of an Indian will be 29 years, compared to 37 for China and 48 for Japan; and, by 2030, India's dependency ratio should be just over 0.4.

India has more than two thousand ethnic groups,and every major religion is represented, as are four major families of languages (Indo-European, Dravidian, Austroasiatic and Sino-Tibetan languages) as well as two language isolates (the Nihali language spoken in parts of Maharashtra and the Burushaski language spoken in parts of Jammu and Kashmir (Kashmir). Further complexity is lent by the great variation that occurs across this population on social parameters such as income and education. Only the continent of Africa exceeds the linguistic, genetic and cultural diversity of the nation of India.

 India demographics Population by Immigrants

The number of foreign immigrants living in India is steadily declining, but India continues to be among the 10 countries with the highest in-migration in the world. At the same time, India sends the fourth largest number of emigrants to other countries.

In 2010, there were 5.4 million foreign-born people living in India, according to new estimates released by the Population Division of the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs. These numbers make India home to the ninth largest number of foreign-born people in the world.

But this number has been in decline since post-Partition migration and an influx of refugees from Bangladesh following the 1971 war.

There were 7.5 million foreign-born persons living in India in 1990. By 2000, this number was down to 6.4 million on account of the death of these older immigrants and refugees.

While a source country-wise break-up is not available for immigrants in India in 2010, past trends indicate that the likes of French diplomats in Delhi, American investment bankers in Mumbai and British techies in Bangalore form a tiny part of this diaspora. In the 2001 census, 97% of all immigrants were from south Asian countries. Three million were from Bangladesh alone, followed by a million from Pakistan and 600,000 from Nepal.


 India demographics Population by Race
.

According to a 2009 study published by Reich et al., the modern Indian population is composed of two genetically divergent and heterogeneous populations which mixed in ancient times (about 1,200–3,500 BC), known as Ancestral North Indians (ANI) and Ancestral South Indians (ASI). ASI corresponds to the Dravidian-speaking population of southern India, whereas ANI corresponds to the Indo-Aryan-speaking population of northern India.

For a list of ethnic groups in the Republic of India (as well as neighbouring countries) see ethnic groups of the Indian subcontinent.

Japan Snap Election Dates 2017

Japan Snap Election Date: 22 October 2017

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is weighing holding a snap general election as early as next month, a move that would allow him to seize on opposition disarray and growing support for his handling of the North Korea crisis.


Japan Snap Election Voting Live 2017

  1. Shinzo Abe is heading towards a snap general election on October 22 as the Japanese prime minister moves to exploit a shambolic opposition and secure power beyond the 2020 Olympic Games.
  2. Analysts said the ruling Liberal Democratic Party was well-placed to win, but there were risks to calling an early vote based purely on the weakness of the opposition, with echoes of UK prime minister Theresa May’s electoral disaster earlier this year.
  3. Abe appears increasingly inclined to call an election amid a recovery in public support following a spate of scandals, public broadcaster NHK reported, without saying where it obtained the information.


    Electoral system of Japan

Japan has a democratic system of government as does the United States. The electoral system in Japan is different, however. In Japan, representatives are elected to the national parliament, the Diet. The Diet is divided into an upper house (the House of Councillors) and a lower house (the House of Representatives).

Nepal Local Elections About 2017 by Council

Local elections were held in 56 municipalities in February 2006 under King Gyanendra but were boycotted by the major political parties and saw low voter turnout. Prior to 2006, the previous elections was held in 1997 with a mandate of five years. Elections were supposed to be held on 2002 but were delayed due to the then ongoing Nepal Civil War.


With the promulgation of the new constitution in 2015, a three-tier governance system was introduced, with national, provincial and Local levels of governance. A Local Body Restructuring Commission was established as required by the constitution under the chairmanship of Balananda Paudel. The commission proposed 719 Local structures which was revised to 744 by the government. The new Local levels were formed by changing the existing cities and village development council and came into existence on 10 March 2017

Metropolitan City One Mayor, One Deputy Mayor, One Ward Chairman, 4 Ward members
Sub Metropolitan City One Mayor, One Deputy Mayor, One Ward Chairman, 4 Ward members
