Presidential elections are held every four years, and currently in years which are multiples of four. These use a nationwide vote to elect the President of the Southern Arc Islands.
General elections and district elections are held simultaneously every two years, and currently in odd-numbered years. The general elections are nationwide, and use a proportional system to elect the members of the Second Chamber. The district elections consist of separate elections for each of the districts of the Southern Arc Islands (including the subdistricts of the independent cities), and elect one representative per district/subdistrict to the First Chamber.
