Elections in Djibouti
|This article is part of a series on the
politics and government of
Djibouti is a one party dominant state with the People's Rally for Progress (RPP) in power. Opposition parties are allowed, but currently have no seats in the legislature. Freedom House considers the recent elections in Djibouti to be "not free".
The President is directly elected for a five-year term using a two-round system. Until 2010, the president was elected for two six-year terms. The constitution was then changed, which scrapped term limits and reduced the term to five years. Candidates may not be older than 75 years old.
Until a change in the electoral law in November 2012, all 65 seats were elected by plurality vote in multi-member constituencies.
