Dominican General Election​ Dates 2019

Dominican General Election​ Date: 6 December 2019 

General elections will be held on 6 December 2019 in Dominica. The elections were constitutionally required to be held by March 2020, but were widely expected to take place before the end of 2019.

Elections in Dominica have been taking place since 1832. Dominica elects on national level a legislature. The House of Assembly has 32 members, 21 members elected for a five-year term in single-seat constituencies, 9 appointed senators, the Speaker and 1 ex officio member. a head of state – the president – is elected by the House of Assembly.

Dominica has a two-party system, which means that there are two dominant political parties, with extreme difficulty for anybody to achieve electoral success under the banner of any other party. Dominica was once a three-party system until the Dominica Labour Party and the greatly diminished Dominica Freedom Party formed a coalition government. The DFP has failed to acquire any seats for two elections straight, leaving the United Workers' Party as the only opposition to the DLP.
