Home » Current Elections » PNG – Bougainville

The Autonomous Region of Bougainville holds a general election every five years.The election will be held from 12 August 2020 with voting to continue until 1 September. The elections were delayed from April 2020 due to the impact of COVID19. This is the fourth election that has been held since the peace agreement was negotiated in 2004 which officially created the new autonomous region and established the new system of government under the 2005 Bougainville Constutution.

Bougainville voters will be voting for the President of Bougainville , as well as the Bougainville Parliment. There are 33 constituencies to elect ordinary members of parliament. The region is also divided into 3 bigger constituencies – North, Central and South – which are used for the 3 seats reserved for women and ex-combatants. Each voter casts 3 votes for representatives in the Legislative Assembly – one for their local MP, one for the reserved woman’s seat and one for the reserved ex-combatant’s seat.

In this election, there are two female candidates for the post of President, 11 women are running in open seats, and 29 women are running for reserved seats.
