Bolivian senate

El Diario is reporting the possible make-up of the new Bolivian Senate:

PODEMOS 13
MAS 12
MNR 1
UN 1

There are three senators for each of Bolivia’s nine departments. Senators are elected by limited-nominations closed-list plurality. In plain English, each party may nominate a slate of two candidates, which it ranks. The list that obtains the plurality of votes elects both its candidates. The list that comes in second elects its first-listed candidate.

No news yet on the lower house.
