Paragraph 94

Against this background, the Venice Commission recommends that other options of allocating undistributed mandates than the one suggested by the draft amendments are taken into consideration, such as:

- proportional allocation either to all political parties passing the 5% threshold; or

- setting up of a ceiling to the number of wasted votes that is to be allocated to the winning party (premium);

- and/or reduction of the threshold to 2% or 3%, thus applying the proportional system also to the distribution of leftover mandates.
