If, for example, the Party Vote for the Grandstand Party entitled it to a
total of 54 seats in Parliament and it won 40 electorate seats, it would
gain 14 further seats which will be drawn from the Party List of the
Grandstand Party. Candidates may stand for Parliament both in an
electorate and on their Party's List. As a result, the first 14 candidates
on the Grandstand Party's rank-ordered Party List who have not been
elected to Parliament to represent an electorate will be declared
elected as List MPs.
A procedure, known as the Sainte-LaguŽ formula (after its founder) is used to decide the number of seats political parties are awarded.
Using this mathematical formula the nationwide Party Vote of each of the parties which qualify for representation in Parliament is divided by successive odd numbers starting with 1 (ie the Party Votes are divided by 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, etc.). The 120 highest results (which are called quotients) determine both the number of seats for each party and the order in which they are allocated.
has a Model Election form to try out other possible numbers of votes,
to see what that would do to the make-up of Parliament.
