i think this is wrong about Germany. It gives the impression that the party winning the overhang seats keeps them and other parties are given extra seats to maintain the balance. I think that is wrong. I think the party with the overhang seats keeps them but no one else gets compensatory seats.
That is correct. In the German Bundestag overhang seats are allowed, but there are no compensatory/balance seats. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 16:24, 19 September 2009 (UTC)
