Von der Leyen Commission

The von der Leyen Commission is the current European Commission, in office since 1 December 2019. Its president is Ursula von der Leyen, who presides over a commission composed of one commissioner from each of the states composing the European Union, except Germany, which is von der Leyen's member state. The United Kingdom has no commissioner due to its planned withdrawal from the European Union. The Commission was scheduled to take office on 1 November 2019; having the French, Hungarian and Romanian commissioner-candidates lost their confirmation votes by the European Parliament in early October 2019,[1] new commissioners had to be selected from those three member states by the President-elect and subsequently confirmed by the Parliament. This process took place in November 2019 and the Commission eventually took office in its entirety on 1 December 2019.[2] Election and formation Von der Leyen, a member of the European People's Party (EPP), was selected and proposed to the European Parliament by the Euro

2019 Ukrainian parliamentary election

Snap elections to the Ukrainian parliament were held on 21 July 2019.[1] Originally scheduled to be held at the end of October, these elections were brought forward after newly inaugurated President Volodymyr Zelensky dissolved parliament on 21 May 2019, during his inauguration.[2] Out of 225 constituencies, 26 were suspended due to the March 2014 annexation of Crimea by Russia and the ongoing occupation of parts of Donetsk Oblast and Luhansk Oblast by separatist forces of the self-declared Donetsk People's Republic and Luhansk People's Republic (since April 2014). Background Originally scheduled to be held at the end of October 2019, the 2019 Ukrainian parliamentary elections were brought forward after newly inaugurated President Volodymyr Zelensky dissolved parliament early on 21 May 2019 (a day after his inauguration), despite claims that he did not have the legal grounds to do this.[3] After Zelensky issued the decree (calling early elections), a lawsuit was filed to the Constitutional Court of Ukraine

2019 Albanian local elections

Map of Albania's Municipalities 2019 Albanian local elections were a set of highly contested elections in Albania held on 30 June 2019. Voters were asked to elect mayors, municipal council members, municipal unit mayors and municipal unit members. These were the second local elections in Albania since substantial administrative reforms legislated in 2014 reduced the number of municipalities in the country to 61. The Central Election Commission of Albania was responsible for administrating the elections. Following months of political crisis, the opposition parties refused to participate in the election accusing the government and the Prime Minister of vote buying, voters intimidation and links with criminal organizations that led to a Socialist Party majority in the previous elections. The President had originally postponed the election date to October 13th after many protests organized by the opposition parties, some of which turned out violent, but it was not accepted by the government and the CEC, which

2019 Saxony state election

State elections in Saxony were held on 1 September 2019, as required by the state constitution. Incumbent Minister President Michael Kretschmer was standing for reelection.[1] Background Saxony last held state elections in August 2014. The CDU won those elections with 40% of the vote,[2] and entered into a coalition with the SPD. Since then, Saxony has emerged as a stronghold of the AfD, which achieved the highest percentage of the state's votes both in the 2017 federal elections and in the 2019 EU election in Germany.[3] On May 2019, Saxony's electoral commission ruled that more than half of the AFD's candidate list was invalid.[4] However, in July 2019, a court in the eastern German state handed a partial victory to the AfD after partly overturning the state electoral committee's decision to restrict the party's number of candidates.[5] Opinion polls Graphical summary Vote share Polling firm Fieldwork date Samplesize CDU Linke SPD AfD Grüne NPD FDP Others Lead

A special election was held on September 10, 2019, to fill the vacancy in North Carolina's 9th congressional district in the United States House of Representatives for the remainder of the 116th United States Congress. The seat has been vacant since the opening of the 116th Congress, following the refusal of the North Carolina State Board of Elections to certify the results of the November 2018 election in the district due to allegations of electoral fraud.[1] Because of the allegations, the race received substantial national attention. In the original election, Mark Harris, a Republican, led Democrat Dan McCready by 905 votes in the unofficial returns for the 2018 North Carolina's 9th congressional district election. However, allegations of fraud in the election prevented its certification.

Legislative elections were held in Austria on 29 September 2019, to elect the 27th National Council, the lower house of Austria's bicameral parliament. The snap elections were called in the wake of the collapse of the ruling ÖVP–FPÖ coalition and the announcement of Vice Chancellor Heinz-Christian Strache's resignation on 18 May 2019, following the Ibiza affair. Background The 2017 legislative election was called four years into a grand coalition between the Social Democratic Party of Austria (SPÖ) and Austrian People's Party (ÖVP), prompted by the demand of newly elected ÖVP leader Sebastian Kurz for a snap election.[1] Although the SPÖ won 52 seats, as it did in the 2013 election, the ÖVP and FPÖ both made large gains, increasing their strength by 15 seats to 62 and by 11 to 51, respectively, making the former the largest party at the federal level.

2019 Kosovan parliamentary election

Parliamentary elections were held in Kosovo on 6 October 2019. The main opposition parties received the most votes, led by Vetëvendosje and the Democratic League of Kosovo (LDK). Vetëvendosje leader Albin Kurti is expected to be the most likely candidate for Prime Minister, and would most likely form a governing coalition with the LDK on an anti-corruption platform. If this occurs, he will be the second Prime Minister not to have been a fighter of the Kosovo Liberation Army during the 1990s. Background On 19 July 2019 Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj resigned after being summoned for questioning by the KSC in The Hague, Netherlands.[1] The constitution requires the President to designate a new candidate to either form a government, or hold new elections in between 30 and 45 days after consultation with political parties or coalitions who hold a majority in the Assembly, On 2 August 2019, President Hashim Thaçi asked the PANA Coalition to propose a new candidate to form a coalition government.

The Socialist Party (PS) won the elections with 36% of the vote and 108 seats, a gain of 22 compared with 2015. The PS won the big districts of Porto and Lisbon, although Porto was closer than expected, and was able to gain districts from the PSD, like Aveiro and Viana do Castelo, however, by razor thin margins.[3] The PS won Lisbon city, however with a smaller share of the vote compared with 2015, 33% vs 35%, and, surprisingly, lost Porto city to the PSD. The Social Democratic Party (PSD) got 28% of the votes and won 79 seats. The party lost 10 seats compared with 2015, and, in terms of share of vote, it was the worst result since 1983, however in terms of seats, it was only the worst result since 2005, when the party won 75 seats. The PSD was able to hold on to their bastions of Viseu, Vila Real, Bragança, Leiria and Madeira. On election night, PSD leader Rui Rio classifi

2019 Tunisian parliamentary election

Parliamentary elections took place in Tunisia on 6 October 2019.[1] Electoral system The 217 members of the Assembly of the Representatives of the People were elected by closed list proportional representation in 33 multi-member constituencies (27 in Tunisia and 6 representing Tunisian expatriates). Seats were allocated using the largest remainder method. Lists must adhere to the zipper system with alternating female and male candidates, and must have a male and female candidate under the age of 35 in the top four in constituencies with four or more seats.[2] Results No party or alliance obtained anywhere near enough seats for a majority, meaning long talks are likely ahead to form a governing coalition, especially compared to the previous elections in 2014. Ennahdha, despite losing seats, became the largest party due to the fracturing of votes between other smaller, newer, or less established parties. Habib Jemli, former Minister of Agriculture (2011 to 2014), is expected to be put forward as their candi

Disputes over the transparency and legitimacy of the elections prompted weeks of widespread protests in Bolivia after incumbent President Evo Morales was declared the winner with 47.08% of the vote; because this was greater than ten-point margin over his nearest competitor, Carlos Mesa, this was enough for Morales to be announced as a winner without a run-off second-round vote.[2][3] The Organization of American States conducted an audit that found "clear manipulation" in the election and significant irregularities overseen by the Electoral Commission,[4] including widespread data manipulation and altered and forged records.[2] The OAS audit team recommend new elections and appointment of a new elections commission.[2] The OAS conclusions were contradicted by two studies, one from the Center for Economic an

In the 20 October elections, the two green parties, the Green Party of Switzerland and the Green Liberal Party of Switzerland, made major electoral gains, taking 13.2% and 7.8% of the vote respectively. As in the previous election, the Swiss People's Party received the most votes, but its share of votes went down to 25.6% from 29.4%.[2] Initial media coverage interprets the 2019 election results as a "green wave" marking a leftward shift of the Swiss electorate on the political spectrum.[3][4][5][6] It remains to be seen what effect the changes in the relative vote and seat shares will have on the composition of the Federal Council, or at least on the government's agenda and legislative initiatives,

The elections were a twelfth straight victory for the BDP. Background Following the 2014 elections, there were two opposing factions in parliament; the Umbrella for Democratic Change (an alliance of the Botswana National Front, the Botswana Movement for Democracy and the Botswana People's Party), and the Botswana Congress Party (BCP). In February 2017 the Botswana Congress Party (BCP) also joined the Umbrella for Democratic Change, uniting all parliamentary opposition parties.[2] However, in October 2017, the Alliance for Progressives, led by Ndaba
