Municipal March

Time to reveal what's coming up in the world elections for 03/06.

We kick off the month with South African municipals. Wiki has nowt on them.

At some point the Solomon Islands elect their Parliament.

It's Benin on the 5th. I wonder if we'll get any boycotts again.

More Municipals, this time in Netherlands. Could be a big test for Balkenende ahead of parliamentary elections next May.

The Latin American Year continues with Colombia and El Salvador electing their Parliaments on the same day (the 12th).

South Australia Municipals on the 18th.

Then watch the rig-a-thon of Belarus the day after.

Haiti goes for a second round on the same day, but the Presidency's already been settled- well done Perval. Seriously, I wish you all the best.

Sao Tome and Principe on the 26th. Should go pretty easily, but I know nothing about it.

Ukraine on the same day. Going to be a big test for Yuschenko, for whom the bloom has come the rose bush in a big way. Watch out for Yuliya Tymoshenko's bloc as well- she wants her job back

Highlight of the month will be a crucial election in Israel. Probable Kadima victory, but it's going to a race between Likud and Labour for second place.
