    Electoral pacts are considered as one list in connection with the calculation of the distribution of seats. In some cases, this may mean that the lists that are part of the pact together get one more mandate than if they were not part of a pact. By joining an electoral pact, the participating candidate lists and candidates can in some situations gain a mandate advantage.

    You can see examples of the significance of electoral pacts for the calculation of the distribution of sets under description of the D’Honske Method.
