elections 2014Parliamentary elections are scheduled to be held in Iraq on 30 April 2014. The elections will decide the 328 members of the Council of Representatives who will in turn elect the Iraqi President and Prime Minister.
Electoral system
The electoral system is based on the open list system of proportional representation using the governorates as the constituencies. The counting system has been changed slightly from the Largest remainder method method to the modified Sainte-Laguë method due to a ruling by the Supreme Court that the previous method discriminated against smaller parties. Seven “compensatory” seats that were awarded at the national level to those parties whose national share of the vote wasn’t reflected in the seats won at the governorate level have been allocated to individual governorates. Eight seats remain reserved for minority groups at the national level
