Past Election Results 1951 - 2014

Elections in Dominica have been taking place in Dominica since 1832 and under universal suffrage since 1951.  The unicameral Parliament of Dominica, the House of Assembly, currently has 32 members composed of 21 elected Representatives, 9 Senators, the Speaker, and 1 ex officio member.  Senators are appointed by the President of the Republic - 5 on the advice of the Prime Minister and 4 on the advice of the Leader of the Opposition.  The normal duration of the legislature is 5 years.  A head of state - the president - is elected by the House of Assembly.

Dominica has a two-party system, which means that there are two dominant political parties, with extreme difficulty for anybody to achieve electoral success under the banner of any other party.  Dominica was once a three-party system until the Dominica Labour Party and the greatly diminished Dominica Freedom Party formed a coalition government.  The DFP has failed to acquire any seats for two elections straight, leaving the United Workers' Party as the only opposition to the DLP.
