What data is expected?

This data category requires results by constituency / district for all major national electoral contests. Election data informs about voting outcomes and voting process. What are electoral majorities and minorities? How many votes are registered, invalid, or spoilt? To enable highest transparency, the Index assesses polling station data. Data for electoral zones does not suffice. The Index consulted the National Democratic Institute (NDI) to develop this data category. For more information, see the NDI’s Open Elections Data Initiative. We recommend that you consult our methodology section for more information.

  • Results for major electoral contests
  • Number of registered votes
  • Number of invalid votes
  • Number of spoiled ballots
  • Data available at polling station level

How open is the data?

The Ministry of Interior has a website dedicated to all popular elections such as Shura Council (Parliament) and the Municipal Councils. However, the website does not appear to have any historic data and shows only most recent election (in this case the Municipal Council), the data on the website is nominal and does not provide any numbers except list of final candidates and the list of voters.

Your submission is valid. Thank you very much for contributing to the Global Open Data Index.
