An open-list PR system from multi-member constituencies, with 3% national threshold. The party winning at least 25% of the votes receives 20 extra seats, with one more seat for every 0.5% point, to a maximum of 50 extra seats at 40% of the votes. Once this bonus attributed, the proper proportional distribution begins for the remaining seats, which can range from 250 if one party gathered at least 40 %, to 300 if no party reached 25%.
