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?

Rejected submission because results for latest general election (2013) are not available. As historical data, not all required data is available. As submitter noted, results available are only major results and registered votes, no information for invalid votes or spoiled ballots. Data available at constituency level. By-Election results (1954-2011) are available in HTML format, structured in tables. It is also possible to download as PDF, DOC files. As for General Elections (1956-2008), data is also available in HTML but it is unstructured. Would require significant scrapping efforts to collect the data. Information for the 2013 elections results not available.
