In Tropico 3, how do I remove elections? A major demand for the Loyalists is to remove elections to get them to vote for me.
You need to issue the Martial Law Edict (scroll down or Ctrl-F) which postpones all elections until the edict is lifted or the "Free Elections" edict is active. However, this does decrease your production, liberty and tourism rating and increase crime..
Martial Law Cost: $5,000 Requires: 60% Respect from Militarists Effects: * Decreases Crime Safety, Liberty, and tourism rating. * Decreases all Production * No elections will be held (unless "Free Elections" condition is active).
