the Federal Republic of Carloso
The National Assembly of Carloso (Spanish: Asamblea Nacional de Cárloso) is the unicameral legislature of Carloso. While its current form dates to the enactment of the new Constitution of Carloso in 1956, the National Assembly itself can be traced back to independence in 1581. Historically, the Carlosian Parliament was divided between the House of Commons and the House of Lords; later the National Assembly and Senate in the Republican period, however the 1956 constitution abolished the upper house and replaced them and with a unicameral National Assembly.
The last general election in Carloso was held in 2015. The next will be held in 2020.
Single transferable vote
The system of the single transferable vote with elimination transfers only (STV-ETO) often penalises parties who field popular candidates in a constituency, as if their votes exceed the quota and they are elected, any surplus votes beyond that quota cannot be redistributed to other candidates running under that party. This resulted in the largely three-party system (Conservative, Democratic, Socialist Republican) that dominated Carlosian politics up until relatively recently. There is a fierce tradition in Carlosian politics of transfer pacts and complex political strategy in almost every constituency. If a party wishes to run two candidates in a constituency, posters and other election literature will direct voters to vote for a particular candidate depending on their geographic location. As such, the strength and discipline of the grassroots are vital to electoral success.
Carloso uses the Hare quota method.
Note: In many cases, each party will run more than one candidate in each constituency. This example presumes that only one candidate has been put forward.
