Early Elections 2016 – Take a Look at All the Election Steps

This will be the longest campaign for parliamentary elections and it will last 25 days (2015 – 17 days, 2011- 16 days, 2007 – 20 days) and this particular schedule seems to suit everyone since most want to rest until August 15 and then throw themselves into the campaign. The only campaigns we had that were longer were the presidential elections in 2009 which lasted 37 days (18 days in 2014) and the European parliament elections in 2017, which lasted 47 days (23 days in 2013).
