If a political party, coalition, or list of independent candidates is allocated the number of mandates equal to the number of candidates on their list and there are still mandates to be allocated, then the remaining quotients of that political party, coalition, or list of independent candidates shall not be taken into account when allocating the remaining mandates. If an independent candidate wins a mandate, then the remaining quotients of that independent candidate shall not be taken into account when distributing the remaining mandates.
If a tie occurs because the quotients are identical, the mandate shall be allocated on the basis of the drawing of a lot.
Mandates that are won by a list shall be distributed first amongst candidates on the list who individually received at least five percent (5%) of the total number of valid votes received by that list where these mandates are being awarded in the order of the highest number of votes to the lowest number of votes. If there are still mandates to be allocated to a list and the candidates remaining are those who received less than five percent (5%) of the total valid votes received by that list, in that case the allocation of the mandates among the remaining candidates from the list will be done according to their order on the list.
