1992 Seychellois constitutional commission election

An election for a constitutional commission was held in the Seychelles between 23 and 26 July 1992. They were the first multi-party elections since the 1977 coup had installed the Seychelles People's Progressive Front as the sole legal party. The commission was elected by proportional representation, with a threshold of 5% to win one of the 22 seats.[1]

The SPPF emerged as the largest party with 14 of the representatives, whilst the remaining eight went to the Seychelles Democratic Party. Voter turnout was 85.3%.[2]
