Kiribati. According to CountryAAH, Tarawa Atoll is the capital city of Kiribati. President Anote Tong and his party Boutokaan Te Koaua (BTK) took home the victory in both the parliamentary and presidential elections. In the parliamentary elections, which were held in two rounds on August 22 and 30, respectively, those entitled to vote could choose from 146 candidates competing for the 42 seats in Parliament. Education and the lack of jobs were major issues. The turnout was around 80 percent.
BTK received the most votes and a majority of the mandate, but still formed an alliance with the small Maurin Kiribati Party (MKP). Maneaban Te Mauri (MTM) lost many of its former parliamentary seats.
In the October 17 presidential election, incumbent President Anote Tong is re-elected. Parliament appoints the presidential candidates, and all four came from the BTK-MKP coalition. The two candidates of the opposition were not nominated in Parliament’s closed ballot. A few days before the election, supporters of the opposition held a peaceful demonstration in the Bairiki district of the capital Tarawa to show their dissatisfaction.
After the election, Anote Tong said that one of his main tasks was to create jobs, especially for well-educated young people returning to Kiribati after studying abroad.
