Background[edit]

The 127 seats in the National Assembly were elected by proportional representation in one national constituency of 16 seats, and 45 multi-member constituencies with between two and nine seats.[2] Over 3,000 candidates ran for the 127 seats,[1] whilst 74 parties contested the 16 national level seats.
