Elections in Nauru

Elections in Nauru gives information on election and election results in Nauru.

Nauru elects on national level a head of state - the president - and a legislature. Parliament has 18 members, elected for a three year term in multi-seat constituencies. The president is elected for a three year term by the parliament.

However, it must be added that there are frequent changes of government in Nauru which occur without an election; most recently, in December 2007, that of President of Nauru Marcus Stephen came to office following a Parliamentary vote of no confidence which overturned the preceding Administration of Ludwig Scotty, reelected just a few weeks previously with a landslide majority.

Voting System

[1]The 18 seat members of the Parliament of Nauru are elected through the Dowdall System a decimalised modification of a preferential Borda Count. The voter must rank all candidates in order of preference see Preferential voting. Each vote is then counted using the formula 1/n, according to ranking order. For example a candidate ranked 1st becomes 1/1 and receives a decimal value of 1.0, the 2nd candidate becomes 1/2 and 0.5, the 3rd becomes 1/3 and 0.33 etc. Each legal vote, is aggregated in order to determine a decimal score for each candidate. [2]For example, in the Nauruan parliamentary election, June 2010 the then president Marcus Stephen regained his Anetan Constituency seat after receiving 349.617 decimal votes from a total of 630 formal votes.
