Party name[edit]

Is "LET'S GET SERBIA MOVING" correct translation of "Pokrenimo Srbiju"? Perhaps "Start up Serbia" would be better? PANONIAN 14:21, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

Hmmm, i am still for moving term... --WhiteWriterspeaks 22:59, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

What about "Dveri"? Should we rename them to "Gates"?PANONIAN 18:10, 7 May 2012 (UTC)

Major cleanup[edit]

Lots of things need to be cleaned on this page. The party list needs more organisation and sourcing, and the all caps titles need to go. We have the Cyrillic names on both the table and the party list section, where it should only be on th party pages. The resutl is unsourced. And the the infobox is confusing in the "last seat" bit...also if the table is sourced then we dont need sources in the infobox.Lihaas (talk) 19:24, 7 May 2012 (UTC)

"National Minority List"[edit]

What does this mean? Several of the lists are labelled as such, but there's no explanation or relevant link for the uninitiated. LukeSurl t c 17:21, 9 May 2012 (UTC)

National minority list have lower election thresholds. While for the other lists this threshold is 5%, for them is 0.4%. Nightfall87 (talk) 17:33, 9 May 2012 (UTC)
Thanks - I've added this to the article. A question: how did Albanian Coalition from Preševo Valley get a seat with only 0.30% of the vote? In general I think this article needs a paragraph on the voting system used. LukeSurl t c 10:24, 11 May 2012 (UTC)
I'm really not sure about that. For national minorities lists required threshold was originally calculated in this way: total turnout divided by 250 (number of seats in the assembly). If we say that total turnout is 100% then threshold for them should be 100%/250 = 0.4% of total turnout. How they end up with 0.3% I can not explain. Nightfall87 (talk) 10:48, 11 May 2012 (UTC)

It is probably related to the distribution of seats of those parties which have not exceeded 5% treshold. National Assembly has 250 seats, so one seat is 100/250=0,4%. But, parties with less than 5% of the vote do not receive seats. So, it is necessary to allocate “their” seats: SRS 4.6%, Dveri 4.3%, Movement of Workers and Peasants 1.4%...that's more than 30 seats. I think D'Hondt method is used for allocating those seats, and I think that all national minority lists participate in that distribution, but I'm not sure.--В и к и T 12:09, 11 May 2012 (UTC)

Update: There are no tresholds for national minority lists. Ad hoc translation from National Assembly official site:

Only electoral lists that have won at least 5% of the votes of voters who have voted can participate in the distribution of seats.

Exceptions are the electoral lists of political parties of national minorities, which participate in the allocation of seats regardless of the number of votes they received.

Seats are distributed using the system of largest quotient (so-called D'Hondt method), and by dividing the total number of votes received by each separate electoral list with numbers from one to 250. The obtained ratios are classified by size, and only 250 largest are taken into consideration.

Nijedan od ponudjenih odgovora translation[edit]

The translation of that party's name should be "None of the above". As one of the references for my claim i'm citing the following wikipedia page: Best regards! — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:52, 10 May 2012 (UTC)
