Elections in Equatorial Guinea

Elections in Equatorial Guinea gives information on election and election results in Equatorial Guinea.

Equatorial Guinea elects on national level a head of state - the president - and a legislature. The president is elected for a seven-year term by the people. President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo was re-elected unopposed on 15 December 2002. The Chamber of People's Representatives (Cámara de Representantes del Pueblo) has 100 members, elected for a five-year term by proportional representation in multi-member constituencies.

Equatorial Guinea is a one party dominant state. This means that only one political party, the Democratic Party of Equatorial Guinea (PDGE) is de facto allowed to hold effective power. Although minor parties are allowed, they are de facto required to accept the leadership of the dominant party.

2008 election

In the May 2008 parliamentary election, the PDGE won 99 seats and the opposition Convergence for Social Democracy won one seat.

The next presidential election was scheduled for 2010.
