The electoral commission has announced a new date for the legislative elections: December 13. This is the last of several delays just in the past few months. The election is overdue since 2015.
Burkina Faso (constitutional referendum): While a draft constitution exists since last year, the referendum might be shelved for the foreseeable future. The dates for the next presidential and legislative elections were fixed for November 22, without any mention of a new constitution taking effect until then. This delays any referendum until at least mid-2021. → Read the rest “News – Burkina Faso: New Constitution (2020)”
Libya (constitutional referendum, president and National Assembly): After General Haftar’s Libyan National Army started an offensive on the internationally recognized government in Tripoli, there is no clear timetable for elections.
Mali (National Assembly and constitutional referendum): The council of ministers announced that the first round of legislative elections will be held on March 29, with the second round taking place on April 19. No word on the planned referendum, as of now.
Chad (National Assembly): Despite being announced for August 9, 2020 just last week, this date has been thrown into doubt again. According to Jeune Afrique, a delay in updating the voter rolls and the upcoming rainy season will further delay the election to the end of October or November. The election is overdue since 2015. → Read the rest “News – Chad: National Assembly (2020)”
