Apparently the Bhutanese elections have been delayed until New Years' Eve 2007. Dunno why.

A quick summary of the election field in Bhutan:

 Samtse District, Dagana District, Mongar District, and Paro District have 4 candidates each.
 Samdrup Jongkhar District, Sarpang District, Trongsa District, Chukha District, Punakha District, and Trashigang District have 3 candidates each.
Pemagatshel District, Tsirang District, Bumthang District, Wangdue Phodrang District, and Zhemgang District have 2 candidates each.
 Elections will not be held in Thimphu District, Trashiyangste District, Gasa District, Haa District, and in Lhuntse District due to those districts either lacking a candidate for the upper house entirely or b/c only one candidate is running for the district's seat in the National Council, and the election rules require that there be at least two candidates running for each seat. Elections may be held in the above districts at the start of the new year.
 His Majesty The Dragon King of Bhutan will also appoint five other members of the National Council of the Parliament of Bhutan.
 The former King of Bhutan required that the members of National Council of Bhutan not have any political party affiliation. They are expected to largely be eminent members of Bhutan's civil society.
 Based on the above, it appears that three- or four-fifths of the 25 members of the National Council will be elected by New Years' Day. In 2008, the remaining members of the National Council will be elected and/or chosen by the King, and the election for the 75-member lower house will be held that year as well. Bhutan's first elected 100-member Parliament will likely be convened in late 2008 or early 2009.

Jovan, could you plz go to the same link and post the results chart.

15 of the 25 members of the National Council of Bhutan were elected yesterday, leaving only two-fifths of the seats in the upper house left to fill. Half of those seats will be filled by the appointment of the King of Bhutan. The other half shall be filled by election on January 29th of this year.
The remaining 75 members of the Bhutanese Parliament shall be elected in February and March in a two-round general election.

A proper election was carried out, though Chukha Dzongkhag had a stain when Thinley Dorji of Chapcha Gewog was disqualified on December 7th by the Election Commission for having a political party affiliation.

God save the King of Bhutan!

OK, sorry it took so long, but we have a MAJOR opportunity to affect the restoration of the Georgian monarchy tomorrow!

Tomorrow, Januray 5th, shall see a non-binding, advisory referendum on whether or not Georgia shall join NATO. I personally don't care what the result of that referendum is.

Also on January 5th is a non-binding, advisory referendum on whether or not to move the date of the parliamentary elections from October to April. I urge you all to support this, and vote for opposition candidates, specifically the nine-party coalition or the New Right party, as both of those have indicated their friendliness towards a restoration of monarchy in Georgia. (I believe both of them have declared that they would work for an eventual restoration.)

Finally, former President Mikheil Saakashvili declared early presidential elections that are to be held tomorrow. Mr. Saakashvili is running as the candidate for the United National Movement, which is currently the ruling party. He is not sympathetic to the possibility of monarchy in Georgia. However, Davit Gramkrelidze of the New Right party and Levan Gachechiladze of the nine-party opposition coalition are. I encourage you to support them in this election, and perhaps in a few years we will once again see a proud, strong Kingdom of Georgia in the world again! (This may even help in other restorations as well.)

OK, the rough results of the nATO referendum are 61% in favor. That's good.

The results of the election date referendum are 64% in favor. That's even better, b/c we can hopefully see the opposition see big wins in April (should the President take the recommendation) and then get some more support for the restoration of the Georgian monarchy!

Unfortunately, it looks like Saakashvili has been re-elected as President of Georgia, so we'll just have to fight harder and get him replaced with a King one day.

by-elections will be held for 15 seats in the Thai Parliament on January 15th. 83 MPs-elect are still being investigated for allegations of fraud. The Thai Election Commission has certified 397 MPs-elect as 'clean'.

Barbados is holding a legislative election of the 15th of January. My own sympathies are with the National Democratic Party, which seems to be the only non-leftist party in Barbados. I encourage you all to kick out the ruling Barbadian Labour Party due to their apallingly duplicitous behavior wrt the planned republic referendum.

Does anyone have information on how the Barbadian elections have turned out?

The results are in! The Democratic Labour Partyhas won 20 seats, leaving the formerly ruling Barbados Labour Party with a mere 10 seats. David Thompson, the leader of the DLP, was sworn in as the new Prime Minister of Barbados by Governor-General Sir Clifford Husbands yesterday, replacing the vile republican Owen Arthur.

According to Wikipedia, the National Democratic Party was dissolved before the elections. If they were not, they won no seats.
