Table figures[edit]

Are these the best figures available? The 300 don't add up (by 20!), and neither do the 200. The official Ch. of Deps. website isn't much help. Hajor 14:00, 11 Jan 2004 (UTC)

I corrected the table, i think now it makes sense... a few issues with the official site, and some deputies were independent, so i added the change to the table.. - Litebox

Blast and damn! The good ones lost!

The total seats column doesn't add up to 500, it adds up to 499.--Sparrowhawk64 (talk) 00:09, 9 June 2009 (UTC)

MMP or parallel voting?[edit]

I've noticed that in both houses, some (60% in the Chamber and 75% in the Senate) are elected by a similar concept to New Zealand's "electorate vote" and the rest (40% in the Chamber ad 25% in the Senate) are elected by a similar concept to New Zealand's "party vote." Is the system Mixed Member Proportional (which means all seats are distributed according to the party votes) or parallel voting (which means that only the "list seats" are proportionally distributed)?

  • I just found on the respective articles that the Chamber of Deputies utilises MMP and the Senate utilises parallel voting. Scott Gall 06:43, 8 July 2006 (UTC)

Both Houses use Parallel voting (Supplementary Member) system. The list section for the Chamber is NOT MMS like New Zealand rather it is proportional only to those elected on the list and doesn't take into account results of the first-past-the-post section.

Mexico's parallel voting system
