Article II: Definitions

The Senate shall be elected by the Sainte-Lague Method, as performed by the election calculator at . The election shall be run within the following guidelines:

1) The Founder will open the candidatures no less than one week before the election. Anyone may declare their intention to form an electoral list, alone or with specified others.

5) The Founder will then ascertain, from the Seats per party according to Sainte-Lague method line in the Resulting table, the number of seats to award to each electoral list.
6) If a certain list should be awarded more seats than they have candidates, all its candidates are elected, and a by-election, run under these same rules, is scheduled for within two weeks to fill the vacancy/ies.
7) The Founder releases a report, detailing the process as above and declaring the elected Senators.

We, the Parliament of the Union, hereby enact this document and its provision as law.
