Mandates within multi-member constituencies are awarded through a ”winner-takes-all” system, whereby the multi-name list which “received more votes than others, but not less than those of 30% of the election participants” (Article 105.5) wins all the seats in the district. This multi-member district ”winner-takes-all” system was first introduced in Georgia for the election of the Tbilisi City council in mid-2005. It is an unusual system for parliamentary elections.
