Sainte-LaguŽ Explained

Electorate Seats

The MP for an electorate seat is the candidate who wins more electorate votes than any other candidate.

Party List Seats

The number of Party Votes won by each registered party which has submitted a Party List is used to decide how many seats overall each party will have in Parliament.

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.

to see what that would do to the make-up of Parliament.
