“The revised electoral system replaces the previous first-past-the-post system with a multiple nontransferable voting system, in which all 76 members are elected across 29 non-proportional multimember districts comprising between 2 and 3 seats.11 The candidates with the most votes are elected such that all seats in a district are filled. By law, voters must select, from open lists, the precise number of candidates corresponding to the number of seats in their district, and ballots with more or fewer marked candidates will be considered invalid.12 Voter turnout must be at least 50 per cent in a constituency for the result to be valid. Repeat elections are held within a week and are open only to eligible voters that did not participate in the initial voting.”
