2019 Argentine general election

General elections were held in Argentina on 27 October 2019, to elect the president of Argentina, members of the national congress and the governors of most provinces.[2] Former Cabinet Chief Alberto Fernández of the Justicialist Party won the presidency, and incumbent president Mauricio Macri lost his re-election bid for a second term. Macri became the first incumbent president in Argentine history to be defeated in his reelection bid. Electoral system The election of the president will be conducted under the ballotage system, a modified version of the two-round system. A candidate can win the presidency in a single round by either winning 45% of the vote, or if they win 40% of the vote while finishing 10 percentage points ahead of the second-place candidate. If no candidate meets either threshold, a runoff takes place between the top two candidates.[3] Voting is compulsory for citizens between 18 and 70 years old.[4] Suffrage was also extended to 16- and 17-year-olds, though without compulsory voting.[5]

The 2019 Thuringian state election in Thuringia, Germany took place on 27 October 2019 and was the seventh election to the Thuringian state parliament since the founding of the Free State of Thuringia in 1990.

Election date According to § 18 of the Thuringian Electoral Law for the Landtag,[1] the Landtag election must take place on a Sunday or public holiday at the earliest 57 months after the beginning of the current parliamentary term on 14 October 2014[2] and at the latest 61 months after, i.e. at the earliest 21 July 2019 and at the latest 10 November 2019.[3] On 28 August 2018, the Thuringian Land government announced that the election is to take place on 27 Octobe

2019 Bougainvillean independence referendum

A non-binding independence referendum was held in Bougainville,[1] an autonomous region of Papua New Guinea, between 23 November and 7 December 2019. The referendum question was a choice between greater autonomy within Papua New Guinea and full independence, voters voted overwhelmingly (98.31%) for independence. The referendum was a result of a 2001 agreement between the government of Papua New Guinea and the Autonomous Bougainville Government that ended a civil war fought from 1988 to 1998. The vote is non-binding and the government of Papua New Guinea has the final say on what becomes of Bougainville. Observers have said that the clear result makes it difficult for Papua New Guinea to ignore or delay the result, but that independence could take years to achieve. Background Discussions about an independent Bougainville had been held as early as 1968. Following a meeting in Port Moresby between the two Bougainville MHAs (Paul Lapun and Donatus Mola) and around 25 Bougainvilleans, a proposal was put forward

Poster announcing the presidential election before it was postponed The 2019 Algerian presidential election was held in Algeria on 12 December 2019.[1] The election had originally been scheduled for 18 April, but was postponed due to sustained weekly protests against plans by the incumbent president Abdelaziz Bouteflika to run for a fifth term.[2] Bouteflika resigned on 2 April and Abdelkader Bensalah was elected acting president by parliament a week later.[3] On 10 April the election was re-scheduled for 4 July.[4] On 2 June the Constitutional Council postponed the elections again, citing a lack of candidates.[5] A new electoral authority, Autorité nationale indépendante des élections (ANIE), was created in mid-September as an alternative to the existing Haute instance indépendante de surveillance des élections (HIISE) defined by the 2016 constitution.[6] The election was re-scheduled for 12 December 2019 and ANIE, of disputed constitutional validity,[7][6] announced five valid candidates on 2 November.[8]

2019 Likud leadership election

A leadership election was held by the Likud party on 26 December 2019.[2] Background After the April 2019 Israeli legislative election, Netanyahu was unable to form a coalition by the deadline of 29 May. Instead of letting Benny Gantz attempt to form a coalition of his own, the majority of the Knesset dissolved itself and a snap election was held on 17 September 2019. The second election was inconclusive, prompting warnings of a third election.[3] The threat was deemed unacceptable by the opposition and the general public, and the prime minister called on Gantz to form a national unity government, even offering to cede the top job sometime in the future. Gantz rejected this offer , noting Netanyahu's proposed unity government would include all of Netanyahu's right-wing allies but none of Gantz's centre-left allies. Gantz has also refused to sit with Likud so long as Netanyahu is its leader, due to the criminal cases against Netanyahu. In October 2019, amid coalition talks, Prime Minister Netanyahu indica

The election was called following the dissolution of the 32nd Dáil by the President, at the request of Taoiseach Leo Varadkar on 14 January 2020. 159 of 160 Dáil Éireann seats were contested, with the outgoing Ceann Comhairle being re-elected automatically. The three largest parties each won a share of the vote between 20% and 25%. Fianna Fáil secured the most seats, with 38, including the outgoing Ceann Comhairle who was elected unopposed.

Fine Gael, led by Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, finished third in both number of seats (35) and first-preference votes. To secure a majority, a government would need the support of 80 or more TDs of the 160 seats in the Dáil. Any government would therefore need the support of more than two parties or a lar
