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.

    Typical Tropico... Remove election and we'll vote for you... vote in what??? Commented Oct 11, 2015 at 17:39
  • Vote for me in the term-like elections for El Presidente. I've been getting a good relationship with my people and they want me to remove them. Commented Oct 11, 2015 at 18:14
  • If you provide an exact screenshot of the quest I can probably refine my answer but based on the available information, I gave my answer.

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
  * Decreases Crime Safety, Liberty, and tourism rating.
  * Decreases all Production
  * No elections will be held (unless "Free Elections" condition is active).
