Croatian parliamentary election Date: December 23, 2020​ 

The next Croatian parliamentary elections will be held on or before 23 December 2020. It will be the tenth parliamentary election since the first multi-party elections in 1990 and will elect the 151 members of the Croatian Parliament unless there is a change in the electoral system or number of seats before the date of the election.

The previous parliamentary elections, held on 11 September 2016, resulted in the plurality of seats being won by the Croatian Democratic Union led by Andrej Plenković. He began talks with the third-placed Bridge of Independent Lists (Most) and MPs representing national minorities on forming a governing majority. Plenković presented 91 signatures of support by MPs to the President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović on 10 October 2016 and received a 30-day mandate to form a government. Parliament formally convened on 14 October 2016 with the election of Most chairman Božo Petrov as a Speaker, while a parliamentary vote held on 19 October 2016 confirmed the proposed Cabinet of Andrej Plenković by a vote of 91 in favour, 45 against and 3 abstentions. Plenković subsequently became the 12th Prime Minister of Croatia.

Most left the governing coalition in April 2017 amid a disagreement with the HDZ over Finance Minister Zdravko Marić's alleged withholding of information relating to financial irregularities in Agrokor, one of Croatia's largest firms, which resulted in a crisis due to Agrokor not being able to pay back its loans. In May the possibility of early elections was heightened as the HDZ was left without a parliamentary majority and a no-confidence vote in Marić was only narrowly avoided by a 75–75 vote in Parliament. In June the HDZ regained a parliamentary majority by forming a government with the support of five of the nine HNS MPs, with the other four forming a new political party, Civic-Liberal Alliance (Glas) and remaining in the opposition.

In the previous parliamentary election, held on 11 September 2016, the Croatian Democratic Union won an upset plurality of seats, receiving 61 seats in the parliament, while the opposition People's Coalition won 54 seats. HDZ chairman Andrej Plenković started talks on forming a governing majority with Most, which won 13 seats. Furthermore, SDP chairman and People's Coalition Prime Ministerial candidate Zoran Milanović announced his withdrawal from politics after the defeat. A few weeks after the election HDZ and Most concluded talks on forming a government, which would also include the 8 Members of Parliament representing national minorities. On 10 October 2016 Plenković formally presented 91 signatures of support by MPs to President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović, therefore far more than the necessary majority of 76 signatures and he was thus made Prime Minister-designate with a 30-day mandate to form a government until 9 November 2016. The 9th Assembly of the Croatian Parliament was constituted on 14 October with the election of Most leader Božo Petrov as Speaker. On 19 October a parliamentary vote of 91 in favour, 45 against and 3 abstentions formally confirmed Croatia's fourteenth government since the first multi-party elections in 1990, with Andrej Plenković as Croatia's twelfth Prime Minister.


The Electoral system of Croatia

The 151 members of the Croatian Parliament are elected by three methods:

  • 140 seats are elected in ten 14-seat constituencies (Constituencies I-X) by open list proportional representation (using a 5% electoral threshold) with seats allocated using the d'Hondt method
  • 3 seats are elected in a special constituency (Constituency XI) for Croatian citizens and people of Croatian descent living overseas
  • 8 seats are elected from a constituency for ethnic national minorities (Constituency XII): 3 seats for Serbs, 1 seat for Italians, 1 seat for Hungarians, 1 seat for Czechs and Slovaks, 1 seat for Albanians, Bosniaks, Macedonians, Montenegrins and Slovenes and 1 seat for Austrians, Bulgarians, Germans, Jews, Poles, Roma, Romanians, Rusyns, Russians, Turks, Ukrainians and Vlachs.

Czech Senate election​ Date: 2020​ 

Senate elections will be held in the Czech Republic in October 2020 alongside regional elections.


Czech Senate election dates and Voting Live 2020 

Senate elections were held in the Czech Republic on 5 and 6 October 2018 alongside municipal elections, with a second round held on 12 and 13 October 2018. The Conservative Civic Democratic Party (ODS) won the election with 10 seats. Governing parties ANO 2011 and the Czech Social Democratic Party were heavily defeated, winning only 1 seat each. The Communist Party lost its last seat in the Senate when Václav Homolka failed to be re-elected, meaning the party would be without representation in the Senate for the first time in the history of Czech Republic. The election was considered the first major win for the opposition to Andrej Babiš' Cabinet. Commentators including Josef Kopecký also noted ODS confirmed their position as the main opposition party, ahead of the Czech Pirate Party.


The Electoral system of Czech

One-third of the 81-member Senate is elected every two years, giving Senators six-year terms. Members of the Senate are elected in single-member constituencies using the two-round system.

ANO 2011 has won the previous election. Czech Social Democratic Party saw heavy losses and came second. 2017 Czech legislative election resulted in another victory of ANO 2011 while Social Democrats were reduced to 6th place. Traditional main right-wing party Civic Democratic Party finished second followed by Czech Pirate Party and Freedom and Direct Democracy. Civic Democrats and Pirates has since then competed for the position of the main opposition party.

TOP 09 and Mayors and Independents negotiated about possible electoral alliance but in December 2019 negotiations failed and parties decided to cooperate only in some regions. In February 2020 the Civic Democratic Party and TOP 09 in Plzeň region agreed to cooperate in Plzeň region allowing TOP 09 candidates to run on the Civic Democratic Party-list.

Georgian parliamentary election​Date: October, 2020​ 

Parliamentary elections are scheduled to be held in Georgia by October 2020 to elect the 150 members of Parliament.


Georgian parliamentary election dates and Voting Live 2020 

Parliamentary elections were held in Georgia on 8 October 2016 to elect the 150 members of Parliament. The ruling Georgian Dream coalition, led by Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili, sought a second term in office. Opposition parties included the former ruling party and the main opposition, the United National Movement (ENM); the Free Democrats, formerly a member of the Georgian Dream coalition and led by Irakli Alasania;[3] and the Alliance of Patriots of Georgia.

Georgian Dream won 115 seats, an increase of 30 seats, while the United National Movement was reduced to 27 seats.


The Electoral system of Georgia

The 150 members of Parliament are elected by two methods; 77 are elected from a single nationwide constituency using closed list proportional representation with a 3% electoral threshold. The other 73 are elected in single-member constituencies using a modified two-round system, in which candidates must receive over 30% of the valid vote to win in the first round. A second round is held between the top two candidates if there is no winner in the first round.

In June 2019, Georgian Dream announced plans to change the electoral system to full party-list proportional representation without an electoral threshold. Despite being supported by opposition parties, the legislation failed to be passed as only 101 of the 150s MPs voted in favour, fewer than the required 75% to change the electoral law.

Lithuanian parliamentary election​ Date: October 11, 2020​ 

Parliamentary elections will be held in Lithuania on 11 and 25 October 2020.

Just over half of the seats (currently 71) are filled through two-round voting in single-seat constituencies, while the remaining half (70) is elected through a nationwide proportional representation of party lists.


Lithuanian parliamentary election dates and Voting Live 2020 

The previous elections saw a surprise landslide victory of the Lithuanian Farmers and Greens Union (LVŽS), winning half of the constituencies and 19 party-list seats. The Skvernelis Cabinet took office with the support of LVŽS and LSDP. The latter party split in 2017 over government participation, with some of its MPs forming the LSDDP. Lacking support in Parliament, the government passed a cooperation agreement with Order and Justice (TT) in 2018.

The number of seats will not be reduced from 141 to 121 seats following a failed referendum held in May 2019.


The Electoral system of Lithuania

The Seimas has 141 members, elected to a four-year term in parallel voting, with 71 members elected in single-seat constituencies and 70 members elected by proportional representation. The voting in the elections is open to all citizens of Lithuania who are at least 18 years old.

Parliament members in the 71 single-seat constituencies are elected in a majority vote, with a run-off held within 15 days, if necessary. The remaining 70 seats are allocated to the participating political parties using the largest remainder method. Parties normally need to receive at least 5% (7% for multi-party electoral lists) of the votes to be eligible for a seat. Candidates take the seats allocated to their parties based on the preference lists submitted before the election and adjusted by preference votes given by the voters.

To be eligible for election, candidates must be at least 25 years old on the election day, not under allegiance to a foreign state and permanently reside in Lithuania. Persons serving or due to serve a sentence imposed by the court 65 days before the election are not eligible. Also, judges, citizens performing military service, and servicemen of professional military service and officials of statutory institutions and establishments may not stand for election. In addition, a person who has been removed from office through impeachment may not be elected.

Northern Cypriot presidential election dates and Voting Live

Northern Cypriot presidential election dates and Voting Live 2020  
Northern Cypriot presidential election Dates 2020 
Northern Cypriot presidential Date: October 11, 2020   

Presidential elections are scheduled to be held in Northern Cyprus on 11 October 2020. They were originally scheduled to take place on 26 April 2020, but they were postponed in March 2020 for six months due to the coronavirus pandemic. 


Northern Cypriot presidential election dates and Voting Live 2020  

The 2015 presidential election was held on 19 April, with a runoff the following week, on 26 April. In the first round of voting, the incumbent, UBP-backed President Derviş Eroğlu received 30,328 votes or slightly above 28% of the total. Mustafa Akıncı, a former MP for the TDP, came second with 27%, while Sibel Siber of the CTP and the independent candidate Kudret Özersay won 22.5% and 21% respectively. As a result, Eroğlu and Akıncı proceeded to a second round of voting on 26 April. Ultimately, Akıncı secured a landslide victory, securing 60.5% of the vote against 39.5% for Eroğlu. Akıncı was formally inaugurated as the fourth President of Northern Cyprus on 30 April 2015. 

Mehmet Ali Talat then challenged Prime Minister Yorgancıoğlu for the leadership of the CTP; this was owing in part to the poor performance of the party in the presidential race. Talat defeated the prime minister, triggering the latter's resignation. Since only MPs may serve in the Cabinet of Northern Cyprus, Talat did not become prime minister; the position ultimately went to Ömer Kalyoncu, who was sworn in on 16 July 2015. Kalyoncu formed a grand coalition of the CTP and the UBP, as opposed to the former CTP–DP constellation. His administration was short-lived, however; Hüseyin Özgürgün managed to establish a right-wing coalition on 16 April 2016, consisting of the DP of Serdar Denktaş—son of the TRNC's pater patriae, Rauf Denktaş—and the UBP. 


The Electoral system of Northern Cypriot  

The President is elected using the two-round system: as no candidate received a majority in the first round, a run-off was held seven days later. The role of the president is not symbolic: the President has a role in the executive branch of the government and represents Northern Cyprus in international politics, especially regarding the Cyprus dispute and the peace talks.

Belarusian presidential election Dates 2020 
Belarusian presidential election​ Date: August 30, 2020​  

Presidential elections will be held in Belarus on 30 August 2020. Long-term president Alexander Lukashenko has announced he will run for a sixth term in office, having won every presidential election since independence in 1991. 


Belarus presidential election dates and Voting Live 2020  

Prior to the vote, six incarcerated opposition figures were pardoned by Lukashenko. The move was welcomed by the OSCE electoral observer mission with the head of the delegation, Kent Härstedt, saying: "The recent release of political prisoners and a welcoming approach to observers were positive developments. However, the hope that this gave us for broader electoral progress was largely unfulfilled." The International Federation for Human Rights reported that it is likely that released political prisoners in Belarus still have many rights curtailed, such as inability to work for the government or run for public office, police visitations, and restriction of travel. Fewer protests occurred during this presidential election than during others, mostly due to unease over the Maidan protests in Ukraine two years prior. The government of Belarus exploited this unease by advocating stability over change, and even opposition leaders opposed protests. 


The Electoral system of Belarus  

Belarus elects on national level a head of state - the president - and a legislature. The president is elected for a five-year term by the people. The National Assembly (Нацыянальны сход, Nacyyanal'ny skhod) has two chambers. The House of Representatives (Палата прадстаўнікоў, Palata Pradstawnikow) has 110 members elected in single-seat constituencies elected for a four-year term. The Council of the Republic (Савет рэспублікі, Saviet Respubliki) has 64 members, 56 members indirectly elected and eight members appointed by the president. 

Belarus is a state in which the president, currently Alexander Lukashenko, dominates. Opposition parties are allowed but are widely considered to have no real chance of gaining power. A report by the Electoral Integrity Project, reviewing worldwide elections for 2015 and released in February 2016, evaluated Belarus as a state "failing to meet international standards of electoral integrity.

On 1 January 2016, incumbent president Ólafur Ragnar Grímsson announced that he would not seek a sixth term in the office, wanting "to transfer the responsibilities of the president onto other shoulders". He later retracted and decided to run in April, citing political unrest after the fallout of the Panama Papers leak, which implicated Prime Minister Sigmundur Davíð Gunnlaugsson and forced him to resign after large anti-government protests. In the following ten days, five other candidates suspended their campaigns, one of them after endorsing Ólafur Ragnar. Former Prime Minister Davíð Oddsson declared his candidacy on 8 May, and Ólafur Ragnar withdrew from the race the following day, stating that there was now a supply of qualified candidates. A poll showing Ólafur Ragnar with only 25% support had been published the same day. 


The Electoral system of Iceland  

Iceland elects on a national level a ceremonial head of state, the president – and a legislature. The president is elected for a four-year term by the people.

Serbian parliamentary election​ Date: April 26, 2020​ 

Parliamentary elections were scheduled to be held in Serbia on 26 April 2020. However, on 16 March they were postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.


Serbian parliamentary election dates and Voting Live 2020 

In the 2016 parliamentary election, the ruling parties—the Serbian Progressive Party-led coalition and the Socialist Party of Serbia-led coalition—were returned to power, and incumbent Prime Minister Aleksandar Vučić was re-elected. However, in the 2017 presidential election, Vučić was elected president and left the government for his new position. The election result sparked protests around Serbia. Thousands of protesters accused Vučić of leading the country towards authoritarianism. The OSCE report criticized unbalanced media coverage during the election campaign, use of public resources to support Vučić and reports of pressure on employees of state-affiliated institutions to support Vučić and secure, in a cascade fashion, support from family members and friends. Ana Brnabić was appointed for the head of government as a non-partisan politician, becoming Serbia's first female and first openly gay Prime Minister. Two years later, she joined the ruling Serbian Progressive Party.

In January 2019, Vučić repeated that there was a possibility of holding early elections 'sometime during 2019'. Observers noted that this was highly likely, as it would enable the SNS to make electoral gains before having to compromise on unpopular decisions regarding the status of Kosovo, which is expected to hit the party's rating.

In May 2019, the European Commission in the Serbia 2019 Report criticized election conditions and expressed serious concern about press freedom. They also stated that there was a negative impact on the work of democratic institutions, in particular the National Assembly, and there was an urgent need to create space for genuine cross-party debate and conditions for meaningful participation by the opposition in the parliament.


The Electoral system of Serbian

Serbia elects a legislature and a president on a national level. The National Assembly of Serbia (Narodna skupština Republike Srbije) has 250 members elected for a four-year term. Serbia has a multi-party system, with numerous parties in which no one party often has a chance of gaining power alone, and parties must work with each other to form coalition governments. A party must receive at least 5% of the votes in the entire country to qualify for any seats, except for national minorities' parties, who only have to reach 0.4%.
