## Distribution of congress seats

The number of the elected congress members of each party is announced after the election review has ended, that is on 27th of each month. The following example shows how the congress seats are distributed:

Let's say a country can elect 40 congressmen. That means a party needs to get at least 100 / 40 = 2.5% of the total votes in order to elect at least 1 congressman. If the division of the party's percentage by the 2.5% returns a decimal number, the integer part only is considered. To be precise:

• Party A with 26.74% : 26.74 / 2.5 = 10.696, which means 10 congressmen
• Party B with 22.28% : 22.28 / 2.5 = 8.912, which means 8 congressmen
• Party C with 17.55% : 17.55 / 2.5 = 7.02, which means 7 congressmen
• Party D with 16.71% : 16.71 / 2.5 = 6.684, which means 6 congressmen
• Party E with 16.71% : 16.71 / 2.5 = 6.684, which means 6 congressmen

But 10 + 8 + 7 + 6 + 6 = 37 congressmen out of the 40, so that means there are 3 congress seats left. Those 3 seats are given to the parties which are closer to the next integer, in this case party B, A and D respectively.
In case of ties, such as with the parties D and E, the additional congress seat goes to the party with the most members.

Note: The numbers of the above example would occur only if all parties have enough candidates to fill in all 40 seats. If a party elects less congressmen than the number of seats it receives then the congress will have less than 40 congressmen.
