Polish Parliamentary Election Date: 13 October 2019 

The next Polish parliamentary elections will be held on 13 October 2019. All 460 members of the Sejm and 100 senators will be elected.

Elections in Poland refers to the election process as well as the election results in Poland. Poland has a multi-party political system. On the national level, Poland elects the head of state – the president – and a legislature. There are also various local elections, referendums and elections to the European Parliament.

Poland has a long history of public elections dating back several centuries, beginning with the elections to Sejm in Łęczyca (known as the First Sejm) in 1182. Notably, since the Sejm of 1493, Polish kings were obliged to call regular Sejms and regional elections (sejmiks) every two years. From 1573 until 1795 the state system of elective monarchy in Poland required the royal elections of monarchs as well during the Sejm proceedings.

The first modern and free elections in 20th-century-Poland were held in 1919, two months after Poland regained independence in 1918 from over more than a century of foreign partitions and colonization efforts by Austria, Prussia, and the Russian Empire. After the Second World War, Poland fell into the Soviet sphere of influence as a satellite state and became controlled by the communists, who rigged the elections of 1947 to ensure they controlled the entire Polish government. There were regular elections in Poland from that time on; however, no elections until the groundbreaking elections of 1989, marking the fall of communism, were free. The Polish communists secured a majority of the lower house seats in 1989, but also, for the first time in the Eastern Bloc history, allowed opposition parties to gain representation; therefore the election was semi-free. All subsequent elections, beginning with the 1991 election are considered fair and free.

The Electoral system of Polish

The 460 members of the Sejm are elected by open party-list proportional representation in multi-member constituencies. Seats are allocated using the D'hondt method, with a 5% threshold for single parties and 8% threshold for coalitions (although requirements waived for national minorities). The Senate is elected using first-past-the-post voting in single-member districts. Candidates for Deputies are nominated either by the electoral committees of the various political parties and or by individual voter committees.

Overall, the Sejm includes 460 MPs. Should a party have 231 or more deputies in Parliament, it has an absolute majority and could thus govern autonomously, without a coalition partner. The constitution can be amended with a supermajority of two-thirds of 307 deputies.

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 on February 2016, evaluated Belarus as a state "failing to meet international standards of electoral integrity."

Portuguese Legislative Election Date:  6 October 2019

The Portuguese legislative election of 2019 was held on 6 October 2019. All 230 seats to the Assembly of the Republic were at stake.

The Socialist Party (PS) won the elections with almost 37% of the votes and gained, until now and when the overseas voting is still to be counted, 106 seats, a gain of 20 compared with 2015. The PS won the big districts of Porto and Lisbon, although Porto was closer than expected, and was able to gain districts from the PSD, like Aveiro and Viana do Castelo, however, by razor-thin margins. The PS won Lisbon city, however with a smaller share of the vote compared with 2015, 33% vs 35%, and, surprisingly, lost Porto city to the PSD.

The Social Democratic Party (PSD) got 28% of the votes and won 77 seats, with overseas voting still out. The party lost 9 seats compared with 2015, and, in terms of share of vote, it was the worst result since 1983, however in terms of seats, it was the worst result since 2005 when the party won 75 seats. The PSD was able to hold won to their bastion of Viseu, Vila Real, Braganza, Leiria and Madeira. On election night, PSD leader Rui Rio classified the results as "not a disaster" and left the door open to continue as party leader. But, many in the party, days after the election, accuse him of being a loser and want new leadership.

The Left Bloc (BE) achieved basically the same results as of 2015. They won almost 10% of the votes and held on to the 19 seats they've got in 2015. On election night, Catarina Martins said she was open to new negotiations with the PS. CDU, PCP-PEV coalition, suffered heavy losses by achieving their worst results in history, just 6.5% of the votes and 12 seats, and Jerónimo de Sousa, PCP leader, said on election night, that written agreements with the PS are off the table. CDS – People's Party was without any doubt the biggest loser in these elections. The party also achieved their worst result in history, 4.3% of the votes, and got a parliamentary caucus reduced to just 5 seats, the lowest since 1991 and when the party was called the "taxi party". Assunção Cristas, CDS leader, resigned on election night and called for a new congress and announced she would not run for reelection. People-Animals-Nature (PAN) saw a big increase in its share of the vote, winning 3.3% and 4 seats, from Lisbon, Porto and Setúbal.

This election was marked by the entry of 3 new parties in Parliament. The right-wing/far-right party Enough! (CH) was one of the big surprises on election night by electing an MP from Lisbon. It's the first time in Portuguese democracy that a right-wing/far-right party is represented in Parliament. LIVRE and Liberal Initiative also elected one MP from Lisbon. Another surprise was the big failure of former Prime Minister and PSD leader Pedro Santana Lopes new party, Alliance, as it failed to win a single seat and polled bellow 1% of the votes.

The turnout in these elections is expected to be the lowest ever in general elections in Portugal and bellow 50% when the overseas voting is counted. In Portugal alone, 54.5% of voters cast a ballot, a drop compared with the 57% in the 2015 elections.

The Electoral system of Portugal

The Parliament of the Portuguese Republic consists of a single chamber, the Assembly of the Republic, composed of 230 members directly elected by universal adult suffrage for a maximum term of four years. Assembly members represent the entire country, rather than the constituencies in which they were elected. Governments do not require absolute majority support of the Assembly to hold office, as even if the number of opposers of government is larger than that of the supporters, the number of opposers still needs to be equal or greater than 116 (absolute majority) for both the Government's Programme to be rejected or for a motion of no confidence to be approved.

Each one of Portugal's eighteen administrative districts, as well as each one of the country's two autonomous regions – the Azores and Madeira – is an electoral constituency. Portuguese voters residing outside the national territory are grouped into two electoral constituencies – Europe and the rest of the world – each one of which elects two Assembly members. The remaining 226 seats are allocated among the national territory constituencies in proportion to their number of registered electors.

Political parties and party coalitions may present lists of candidates. The lists are closed, so electors may not choose individual candidates in or alter the order of such lists. Electors cast a ballot for a single list. The seats in each constituency are apportioned according to the largest average method of proportional representation (PR), conceived by the Belgian mathematician Victor D'Hondt in 1899. Although there is no statutory threshold for participation in the allocation of Assembly seats, the application of the D'Hondt method introduces a de facto threshold at the constituency level.

Austrian Legislative Election Date: 29 September 2019 

The 2019 Austrian legislative election will be held on 29 September and will elect the 27th National Council. This snap election was called in the wake of the collapse of the ruling ÖVP–FPÖ coalition and the announcement of Vice Chancellor Heinz-Christian Strache's resignation on 18 May 2019, following the Ibiza affair.

3. Austria’s Sebastian Kurz surges ahead in polls.


The Electoral system of Austria

The 183 members of the National Council are elected by open list proportional representation at the level of one federal constituency consisting of all of Austria, 9 state constituencies, and 39 regional constituencies. The number of seats elected by each constituency is determined in accordance with the results of the most recent census. Seats are allocated in a three-stage process, from regional constituencies to state constituencies to the federal constituency. For parties to receive seats in the National Council, they must either win a seat in at least one constituency or clear a 4 per cent national electoral threshold. Seats are distributed according to the Hare method in the first two stages, at the level of regional and state constituencies, with the remaining constituencies allocated using the D'Hondt method at the federal level to ensure proportionality with the election result.

In addition to voting for a national party list, voters have the option of casting three preferential votes capable of changing the order of precedence for candidates on a party list: one each at the federal, state, and regional level. The threshold to increase the position of a candidate on a federal party list is 7 per cent, compared to 10 per cent at the state level and 14 per cent at the regional level. Preferential votes for candidates on regional party lists may be indicated by marking the given spot on the ballot, whereas the name or ranking number must be provided for preferential votes for party-list candidates on the state and federal level.

Ukrainian Parliamentary Election Date: 21 July 2019 

Snap elections to the Ukrainian parliament are set to be held on 21 July 2019. Originally scheduled to be held at the end of October, these elections were brought forward after newly inaugurated President Volodymyr Zelensky dissolved parliament early, despite claims that he did not have the legal grounds to do this. The elections may still take place in October if the Constitutional Court of Ukraine rules in favour of a lawsuit that calls Zelensky's decree (calling early elections) illegal; the ruling must be announced before 29 June. Due to the short period of time available to organize the election, current Ukrainian public procurement laws were not followed and to bypass this, local election commissions will work under deferred payment.

Under current election laws, 225 members of the Verkhovna Rada are elected by nationwide closed party-list proportional representation with 5% electoral election threshold and the other 225 seats elected in constituencies with a first-past-the-post electoral system in one round (candidate with the highest vote total wins).

Due to the March 2014 annexation of Crimea by Russia and the occupation of parts of Donetsk Oblast and Luhansk Oblast by separatists (since April 2014), only 424 seats in Verkhovna Rada can currently be elected under current laws and roughly 12 per cent of voting-age citizens cannot participate in the elections.

As of 17 June 2019, the Central Election Commission has registered 461 candidates for the elections as well as the party list of Civil Position.

1. Ukrainian Parliamentary Election will be held on 21 July 2019.

2. Central Election Committee registers seven parties to run during the parliamentary election in Ukraine.

3. Tymoshenko speaks of her premieral ambitions.


The Electoral system of Ukraine

Candidates had until 20 June to submit documents to the Central Election Commission of Ukraine to register as candidates for the position of deputy of the Verkhovna Rada. On 25 June 2019, the Central Election Commission ended its registration process. It registered 5,845 candidates for the elections: 3,171 candidates in the single-member constituencies and 2,674 candidates in the single nationwide constituency with 22 parties.

Since 2014, various politicians have proposed to reform the electoral system to 100% party-list proportional representation with open lists. President Zelensky is the main proponent. The proposal is opposed by Yulia Tymoshenko. A vote on the proposal (authored by the president) was supposed to take place on 22 May 2019, but members of parliament voted against including it in the agenda.

Greek Parliamentary Election Date: 7 July 2019 

The 2019 Greek legislative election will be held on 7 July 2019. All 300 seats in the Hellenic Parliament will be contested. It will be the first national election in Greece where the voting age will be lowered to 17, and the number of parliamentary constituencies was increased from 56 to 59. Athens B, the largest constituency with 44 seats before the 2018 reform, was broken up into smaller constituencies, the largest of which has 18 seats.

On 26 May 2019, following his defeat in the 2019 European Parliament election in Greece, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras announced that a snap election would be held as soon as possible following the second round of the 2019 Municipal Elections.

The Electoral system of Greece

All voters are called up to vote, with registration being automatic and voting being mandatory. However, none of the legally existing penalties or sanctions has ever been enforced.

A number of changes to the electoral system were introduced since the September 2015 election. Greece lowered its voting age from 18 to 17 in July 2016. Additionally, the same law abolished the majority bonus system which had been used in previous elections, which gave a 50-seat bonus to the largest party, replacing it with a simple proportional representation system in which all 300 seats are awarded proportionally. However, this law will not come into effect for the 2019 elections, as it was not approved with the required supermajority. The Syriza-led government expressed support for the introduction of the new system in the 2019 elections as well. The number of parliamentary constituencies was also modified in December 2018, with Athens B being split into Athens B1 (North), Athens B2 (West), and Athens B3 (South), while Attica was split to East Attica and West Attica. The extension of the franchise to Greeks living outside of Greece is also under discussion, but it is unclear if it will be approved in time for the 2019 election.

In the 2019 elections, 250 seats will be distributed on the basis of proportional representation in the constituencies, with a threshold of 3% of those who voted required for entry into parliament. Blank and invalid votes, as well as votes cast for parties that fall short of the 3% threshold of those who voted, will be disregarded for seat allocation purposes. 50 additional seats will be awarded as a majority bonus to the party that emerges with a plurality of votes, with coalitions in that regard not being counted as an overall party but having their votes counted separately for each party in the coalition, according to the election law. The parliamentary majority will be achieved by the party or coalition of parties that will command at least one half plus one (151 out of 300) of total seats.

Danish General Election 2019 Date: 5 June 2019 

General elections will be held in the Kingdom of Denmark on 5 June 2019. All 179 members of the Folketing will be elected, 175 in Denmark proper, two in the Faroe Islands and two in Greenland. The election will be held 10 days after European Parliament elections in Denmark.

3. 2019 EU Parliament Election: Historic voter turnout in Denmark.


The electoral system of Denmark

Of the 179 members of the Folketing, 175 are elected in Denmark proper, two in the Faroe Islands and two in Greenland. In Denmark, there are ten multi-member constituencies containing a total of 135 seats directly elected by proportional representation, with seats allocated using a modified version of the Sainte-Laguë method and Hare quota. An additional 40 seats are used to address an imbalance in the distribution of the constituency seats and are distributed among all parties that cross the 2% election threshold, according to their national vote share.

Voters can choose between casting a personal vote for a candidate or voting for a political party. The votes given to political parties are distributed among the candidates for that party. This can either be done in proportion to their personal votes or by giving them to candidates in a predetermined order. All parties except the Red-Green Alliance make use of the first option.

According to the Danish Constitution, the 2019 election was required to be held no later than 17 June 2019, as the previous elections were held on 18 June 2015. The Prime Minister is able to call the election at any date, provided that date is no later than four years from the previous election, and this is often cited as a tactical advantage for the sitting government, which can call an early election when polls are favourable.

For a new party to become eligible to participate in the election, they must be supported by a number of voters corresponding to 1/175 of all valid votes cast in the previous election. A new party registering to contest the 2019 elections required 20,109 voter declarations to participate.

Belgian Federal Election 2019 Voting Date: 26 May 2019 

The 2019 Belgian federal election will take place on the same day as the 2019 European Parliament elections and the 2019 Belgian regional elections, being 26 May 2019, unless snap elections are called.

In the election, all 150 members of the Chamber of Representatives will be elected in eleven multi-member constituencies.

1. Divided poll panel: In two clean chits to PM Modi, EC’s decision was not unanimous.

2. Belgian Pride Festival returns for its 15th year.

3. 8m UK voters not registered ahead of European elections.

4. Brexit: Guy Verhofstadt to knock on doors for Lib Dems in European parliament elections.


The electoral system of Belgian 

The 150 members of the Chamber of Representatives will be elected in 11 multi-member constituencies, being the ten provinces and Brussels, with between 4 and 24 seats. Seats are allocated using the d'Hondt method, with an electoral threshold of 5% per constituency.

Representatives elected from the five Flemish provinces, Antwerp (24), East Flanders (20), Flemish Brabant (15), Limburg (12) and West Flanders (16), automatically belong to the Dutch-speaking language group in parliament, whereas those elected from the five Walloon provinces, Hainaut (18), Liège (15), Luxembourg (4), Namur (6) and Walloon Brabant (5), form the French-speaking language group. The 15 members elected in Brussels may choose to join either group, though de facto only French-speaking parties reach the threshold. Apportionment of seats is done every ten years in accordance with population data, last by royal order of 31 January 2013.

The 60-member Senate is composed of 50 representatives from the regional and community parliaments, plus 10 co-opted senators proportionally divided among parties based on the result of the federal election.

All Belgian citizens aged 18 or over are obligated to participate in the election. Non-Belgian citizens residing in Belgium (regardless of EU citizenship) cannot vote, whereas Belgian citizens living abroad may register to vote.

Several federal votes will be held in Switzerland during 2019. Voting took place on 10 February, and two referendums are scheduled for 19 May. Federal elections will take place on 20 October, which led the Swiss Federal Council to postpone the November round of voting until 2020.

 


About Switzerland Referendums

Voters will vote on two popular initiatives:

  • The first is an initiative to change corporate tax law and reform the old age pension system. Among other changes, the law would change the tax rate on shareholder dividends and the limits on tax break on profits from patents and deductions for investment in research and development. A separate law on corporate taxes and the old age pension system was rejected in 2017.
  • The second is an initiative to challenge gun law reform passed in 2018. This reform was passed to bring Swiss gun regulations in line with changes to EU regulations and included changes to how automatic and semi-automatic guns are legally purchased. The initiative would reject the law passed in 2018.
