Allocation of seats
San Marino has a modified proportional representation, the seats are allocated according to the D'Hondt procedure . In addition, the voter has the option of ticking a candidate on the list he has chosen or of choosing a coalition of different parties.
The coalition that achieves an absolute majority in the first ballot or wins the runoff election receives 35 of the 60 seats in parliament (Premio di Stabilità) .
There is a blocking clause (sbarramento) . It is 0.4% times the number of lists available for election, but a maximum of 3.5%.
If none of the coalitions received more than 50% of the votes in the first ballot or if 30 of the 60 seats win, a ballotaggio will take place between the two coalitions that received the most votes in the first ballot.
The winning coalition will then receive 35 seats, which will be distributed within the coalition. The other coalitions will receive fewer seats accordingly.
