c Formerly known as Christian Left (Izquierda Cristiana).
d The percentage of seats held by a party in each elected body is multiplied by a weighting factor, which is equal to the inverse value of that body's total seats divided by the summation of the inverse values of all bodies' total seats. The resulting weighted percentages are then summed together to obtain a party's "weighted representation" value. (Formula: [S/38^2+D/120^2+R/278^2+M/345^2+C/2224^2]/T, with T=1/38+1/120+1/278+1/345+1/2224, S=party senators, D=party deputies, R=party regional advisors, M=party mayors, C=party councilmen.)
e Figures updated with the December 2013-January 2014 resignations of RN senators Antonio Horvath and Lily Pérez, and RN deputies Pedro Browne, Joaquín Godoy and Karla Rubilar.
f Figures updated with: 1) The January 2014 death of Yumbel mayor Camilo Cabezas (PH) and its subsequent replacement with independent councilman Jaime Gacitúa, who in turn was replaced with Fredy Winter from the UDI. 2) The May 2014 resignation of La Florida mayor Rodolfo Carter.
