Parliamentary elections were held in Colombia on 11 March 2018 to elect 102 members of the Senate and 166 members of the House of Representatives.

Electoral system[edit]

Of the 166 members of the House of Representatives, 162 are elected by proportional representation from 33 multi-member constituencies based on the departments, with seats allocated using the largest remainder method.[1] Two members are elected by Afro-Colombian community, one by indigenous community, and one by Colombian expatriates.[2]

The 102 Senators are elected by two methods; 100 from a single nationwide constituency by proportional representation (with seats allocated using the largest remainder) and two from a two-seat constituency for indigenous Colombians.[3]

FARC will be guaranteed five seats in the House and five in the Senate as part of the Colombian peace process.[4][5]
