Parliamentary electoral system[edit]

If I can rely on the electoral code of 2012 on the website of ELECAM (section 152), the parliamentary electoral system is as follows:

- in districts with only one seat, first past the post ('one round majority')

- in other districts: a mixed system: if one party has a majority of votes, it wins all the seats, if not, it wins half the seas (rounded up), while the other seats are apportioned proportionally among all other lists winning 5% (without the list already winning half the seats)

Voters can only choose among closed lists.--Bancki (talk) 20:54, 28 November 2013 (UTC)
