New parliament to be elected in Seychelles in 3 month

Posted in Seychelles government at 3:02 pm by Robert Klien

Following the dissolution of the previous National Assembly on June 12, 2011 by a motion passed by 2/3 of its 34 members, the Seychelles is to elect a new National Assembly (parliament) within the next 3 months.

It should be noted that this is not the 1st time for the legislative body to be dissolved in Seychelles. This can be done by the head of state as in the case in 2007 or the National Assembly itself.

The election will take place within the next 3 months instead of April 2012. The new parliament’s election is expected to pave the way for a ruling party dominating in the assembly.
