(Majlis al-Umma) Election 2013

Iranian Presidential Election, 2013

Qatari Legislative Election, 2013

Boston Mayoral Election, 2013
In 2006, the National Assembly passed legislation to divide Kuwait to 5 electoral districts only, which was a major issue in the preceding election campaign. The voter now can cast votes for 4 candidates and in each district the highest 10 candidates earn seats. It is hoped that this would make vote buying more difficult and decrease the importance of tribe, family and sect in elections. The eleventh election of the President of Iran will be held on June 2013.

 

Parliamentary elections will be held in Qatar for first time in early 2013.

Currently the Consultative Assembly (Majlis as-Shura) has 35 appointed members with only consultative tasks. It is not elected; it is not democratic. However, the 2003 Constitution of Qatar calls for a 45 member elected Legislature, which is to be made up of 30 elected representatives and 15 appointed by the Emir. The actual elections have been postponed three times; most recently in June 2010, when the Emir extended the current unelected Consultative Assembly until 2013.

The Boston mayoral election of 2013 will occurr on Tuesday, November 5, 2013.
