The next Czech legislative election will be held in or before October 2021. All 200 members of the Chamber of Deputies of the Czech Republic will be elected and the leader of the resulting government will become the Prime Minister.

Electoral system[edit]

The 200 members of the Chamber of Deputies are elected from 14 multi-member constituencies by open list proportional representation with an electoral threshold of 5%. The threshold is raised to 10% for two-party alliances, 15% for three-party alliances and 20% for alliances of four or more parties. Seats are allocated using the D'hondt method. Voters can give preference votes to up to four candidates on a list. Candidates who receive preferential votes from more than 5% of voters are moved to the top of their list; in cases where more than one candidate receives over 5% of the preferential votes, they are ranked in order of votes received.[1]
