Seychelles: 1993 National Assembly election results

Updated April 2007

Elections for the National Assembly were held in July 1993.

The National Assembly consisted of 22 members elected from single member (SM) constituencies by a plurality of votes. 11 additional members were allocated on a proportional representation basis for each 10% of the vote a party achieved. A minimum of 8% of the vote is thus required for a party to be allocated a PR member (Constitution 1993, Article 78, Schedule 4).

The United Opposition was a coalition of Parti Seselwa (PS), Seychelles National Movement and the National Alliance Party (Lodge et al 2002).

Party % votes SM seats PR seats Total seats % seats
Seychelles People's Progressive Front (SPPF) 57.5 21 6 27 81.82
Democratic Party (DP) 32.8 1 4 5 15.15
United Opposition (UO) 9.7 0 1 1 3.03
Total 100.0 22 11 33 100.00

Lodge et al 2002; due to a typographical error the percentage vote for the Democratic Party is given as 2.8% instead of 32.8% (Cf Nolan et al 1999, 785).
