Electoral system of Mauritania

In the National Assembly, 106 members are elected in single- and multi-member constituencies to serve 5-year terms and 40 members are elected through a closed-list proportional representation system to serve 5-year terms. Districts have a magnitude ranging from 1 to 18. For single-member constituencies, elections are majoritarian, with a run-off if no candidate achieves an absolute majority in the first round. In two-seat constituencies, elections are also majoritarian, with any list achieving an absolute majority winning in the first round, and a run-off if not. In districts with more than two seats, elections are held on the basis of proportional representation, with no run-offs. Seats in these districts are allocated on the basis of the largest remainder system. Election lists in two-member constituencies must include at least one candidate of each gender. In larger districts, a female candidate must appear in either first or second place, and genders should alternate throughout the list. Of the 40 seats elected at the nationwide level, 20 seats are reserved for females.
