Comoros is expected to hold its crucial general elections in March 2019.
A presidential decree published by the country on Monday said presidential and regional elections will take place on March 24.
A second round of voting in the presidential election will take place on April 21 if there is no clear winner.
Comoros has been plunged into a political crisis most part of this year after moves by President Azali Assoumani to prolong his stay in power.
President Assoumani won a controversial referendum which will allow him to stay on for more years.
This move sparked violence in parts of Comoros resulting in clashes between protesters and soldiers.
The political crisis in Comoros has forced the European Union to withhold assistance to the country.
Crisis remains unresolved
The African Union’s effort to restore order failed after the government failed to release key political prisoners still in detention.
The government’s decision to maintain the results of the referendum that extends President Assoumani’s tenure has also worsened the crisis.
The constitution until the referendum provides for the presidency to rotate every five years among candidates from the country’s three main islands.
Azali Asoumani will contest the March election without stepping down to end his current tenure in 2021.
President Asoumani is a former military officer who seized power in a coup in 1999. He was re-elected in 2016 after serving an elected term as president from 2002-2006.
