Gabon – Legislative election

Gabon held its legislative election on 17 December. The Electoral Commission does not seem to have a website, but there are seemingly verifiable reports that the ruling Parti Démocratique Gabonais (PDG) has won 114 of the 120 seats in the legislature.

The legabonemergent blog has a post that appears to report the victors for each of the constituencies and it seems to confirm the overwhelming victory for the PDG.

Interestingly, the turnout seems to have been between 30-40%, which is very low and is being taken as a sign that support for the PDG may be less great than the result in terms of seats won.

I will report full figures if they become available.
