1 Where not all of the mandates have been allocated, the mandates remaining shall be allocated individually and one after the other according to the following rules:
the number of votes cast in favour of each electoral list is divided by a number equivalent to the number of mandates already allocated to that list plus one.
the next mandate is allocated to the electoral list that has the largest quotient.
if more than one list is entitled to the next mandate as they have the same quotient, then the next mandate is allocated to the list that achieved the highest remainder in the division according to Article 40 paragraph 2.
if there are still two or more lists with the same right to the mandate, the mandate goes to the list that has obtained the highest number of party votes.
if more than one list still has the same right to the mandate, the first mandate is allocated to the list whose candidate for the mandate has obtained the highest number of votes.
if more than one candidate has obtained the same highest number of votes, the mandate is allocated by drawing lots.
2 This procedure is repeated until all the mandates have been allocated.
