the Comoros

Legislative elections were held in Comoros on 25 January 2015, alongside local elections. A second round of voting was held on 22 February in the 21 constituencies where no candidate won in the first round.[1] The Union for the Development of the Comoros emerged as the largest party, winning eight of the 24 seats in the Assembly of the Union.

Background[edit]

The term of the Assembly of the Union elected in 2009 was due to expire in April 2014, but was extended.[2] Elections were initially scheduled for early November 2014, but in September President Ikililou Dhoinine announced that they would be delayed until 28 December, with the second round planned for 1 February.[2] They were later delayed again until January 2015.

Electoral system[edit]

The 33 members of the Assembly of the Union were elected by two methods; 24 members were directly elected in single member constituencies using the two-round system, whilst nine members were elected by the Island assemblies.[3]

Campaign[edit]

The campaigning period officially began on 25 December. A total of 204 candidates registered to run for election to the Assembly, whilst 353 candidates contested the council elections.[4]
