How do Elections work?
Unlike many countries, people don’t stand for an individual seat – each are national. Voting is done using the D’hondt method. Seats are the divided out equally based on the percentage of votes, with 20 seats up for grabs, the final reserved for the Monarchs. Once elections are over, the council is reshuffled based on the PM’s views along with the Monarchs. Candidates are selected party wise based on a list decided by Party leaders.
