Chapter 14
 

In the first instance the order between the candidates shall be determined on the basis of the amount of each candidate’s number of personal votes. The number of personal votes shall be determined only for a candidate who has received specific personal votes corresponding to at least 5 per cent of the party’s
number of votes in the constituency.


A number of personal votes shall be determined on the basis of the specific personal votes cast for the candidate. Ballot papers on which a specific personal vote have been cast shall be arranged in groups according to party denomination. Thereafter, the number of personal votes for each candidate in the group will be counted. A candidate’s number of personal votes is equivalent to the number of personal votes that have been cast for the candidate under the same party denomination. The candidate that has the greatest number of personal votes takes the first place in the order, the candidate that has the second greatest number takes the second place and so on according to the same principle.
