a 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: [G/16^2+S/43^2+D/155^2+CC/138^2+R/278^2+M/345^2+C/2224^2]/T, with T=1/16+1/43+1/155+1/138+1/278+1/345+1/2224, G=party governors, S=party senators, D=party deputies, CC=party constituents, R=party regional advisors, M=party mayors, C=party councilmen.)
b Between 1994 and 2018 it was called the Social Democratic Radical Party for the fusion of the Chilean Social Democracy Party (Partido Socialdemocracia Chilena, founded 1971) and the Radical Party of Chile (Partido Radical de Chile, founded 1863). In 2018 the party regained the name "Radical Party."
c A fusion of the Poder Ciudadano and Poder Ciudadano del Norte parties.
d A fusion of the Independent Regionalist Party (Partido Regionalista Independiente) and the Patagonian Regional Democracy (Democracia Regional Patagónica). Formerly known as ChileFirst (ChilePrimero).
e Before October 2015, known as Fuerza Pública ("Public Force").
f A fusion of Regional and Popular Front, Green North Regional Force, Social Agrarian Regionalist Independent Movement and We Are Aysén parties.
