This data category requires results by constituency / district for all major national electoral contests. Election data informs about voting outcomes and voting process. What are electoral majorities and minorities? How many votes are registered, invalid, or spoilt? To enable highest transparency, the Index assesses polling station data. Data for electoral zones does not suffice. The Index consulted the National Democratic Institute (NDI) to develop this data category. For more information, see the NDI’s Open Elections Data Initiative. We recommend that you consult our methodology section for more information.

Dataset is split into multiple files. Although results are described on one page, info on HTML does not contain all required data. Data is not downloadable in bulk. Submitter noted that it was not possible to find a license, but only bills mentioning that the results should be publicly announced.
