The first general elections for the Consultative Assembly were scheduled to be held in Qatar for the second half of 2013, but were postponed in June 2013 until at least 2016. In 2016 they were postponed again.
The elections were originally scheduled to be held in the last six months of 2013, but were postponed prior to the retiring Emir Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani transferring power to his son Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani. The Consultative Assembly's term was extended until 2016 and then until 2019.
