In restricted proportional elections all the votes received by each list shall be counted to give the total number of votes for each list.
The following procedure shall be used to determine how many candidates have been elected from each list:
The total number of votes for each list shall be divided by the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. The resulting figures for each list shall be recorded.
The list with the highest resulting figure elects the first representative. This number is then eliminated. The list which now has the highest resulting figure elects the second representative. This process shall continue until as many representatives as are to be elected have been selected.
In the event that there are too few names on a list when representatives are selected as provided for in Point 2, this list shall be disregarded in further selection.
In the event that two or more resulting figures are equal when their turn comes as provided for in Point 2 their order shall be decided by lot.
