Position Paper

The 2016 Electoral Law Position Paper is divided into five sections, each of which detailing a particular component of the new law. The first focuses on the introduction of the open candidacy lists, and outlines the processes by which the system works. The second considers the reintroduction of the principle of multiple votes and the subsequent removal of the Single Non-Transferable Vote (SNTV). Section three looks at the establishment of the electoral districts, suggesting that their overlap with the governorates constitutes a potentially positive reform development. Continuity and change regarding quotas for female and minority (Christian and Circassian/Chechen) candidates is considered in part four, before the final section evaluates the Law and comments on its capacity to induce further political and parliamentary reform in the Kingdom.
