2018 Parliamentary Elections in East Timor

by Jan Senkyr, Dustin Jung
For the second time within the span of a year, the citizens of East Timor have elected a new Parliament. As the parliamentary elections on 22 June 2017 failed to produce a clear majority and a stable government, the President called for a new ballot to be held on 12 May 2018. This was the fifth parliamentary elections since the country gained independence.
