General elections were held in Aswington on December 12, 2020. Voters elected the President of the Republic and the ten members of the National Assembly.

Background

After the dissolution of the second legislature of the National Assembly by presidential decree on June 25, 2020, it was proposed to hold new elections within ninety days, initially to elect the members of the new legislature of the parliament. However, for reasons of time and logistics, it was decided to hold general elections in the country.

The National Electoral Commission convened these elections to be held on December 12, 2020.

Electoral System

The President of the Republic is elected through the first-past-the-post system, where the candidate who obtains the majority of votes will be the winner of the election.

Meanwhile, the members of the National Assembly are elected through a party-list proportional representation, where the candidates of a political party participate through electoral lists. Unlike the previous election, in which five deputies were elected, voters will elect this time a total of ten deputies in accordance with the provisions of the Constitution.

Aftermath

Due to the low number of elected deputies, the electoral committee announced special elections to choose the vacant seats. These were held on February 20, 2021. On this occasion, the election was held in the form of a plebiscite, where the voter accepted or rejected the list of candidates. The list was approved and one candidate from the National Democratic Party, one candidate from the Social Democratic Party and one from the National Party were elected.

That same day, Juan Cisneros resigned from the Presidency of the Republic for personal reasons. Simbach Vazo assumed the presidency on a provisional basis, minutes later.
