Some of the statistics for these 22 November 2014 elections have yet to be confirmed at the time of publication on 23 November. However, there are several patterns which have clearly emerged:
The 52.6% turnout is a combination of very high participation in some of the most competitive areas (like central Muharraq and many of the urban areas of central Bahrain) with very low turnout in a handful of areas where opposition militants were enforcing the boycott, like Sitra and some of the villages on the north coast.
However, most of the seats have not been decided, because high numbers of candidates, and intense competition ensured that in most seats no candidate obtained more than 50% and therefore the vote had to go to a second round.
Only six first round victories...
