2018 Bahraini general election(Redirected from Bahraini general election, 2018)
General elections were held in Bahrain on 24 November 2018, with a second round in some constituencies on 1 December. Considered to be sham elections, they followed a crackdown on dissent that included prohibiting members of dissolved opposition groups from running.
The 40 members of the Council of Representatives are elected from single-member constituencies using a two-round system; if no candidate receives a majority of the vote in the first round, a second round is held. Candidates had to apply between 17 and 21 October 2018, with 293 registering to contest the 40 seats.
Nine of the 40 constituencies had a winner in the first round, with the other 31 going to a runoff. According to the government, voter turnout in the first round was 67%, an increase from 53% in the 2014 elections. However, the opposition claimed that real voter turnout did not exceed 28%-30%.
