Article 14 states that the People’s Assembly schedules the elections within three months after the mandate of the incumbent Governor expires. This means that the term of office would be extended by more than three months, if the Assembly so decides. One should, for regular elections, make sure that the new Governor is taking office upon the end of the incumbent’s term, which would mean that the elections should be set for at least a month before the end of the term.
