Distribution of Parliamentary Seats for the 2009 Elections by Electoral District
Under the existing Electoral Code (Article 72), the number of seats contested for the 2009 Tunisian parliamentary elections was determined using a formula based on population data. There is one seat in parliament for every 48,700 of population (i.e. 214 seats in total).
Seats were allocated per district for every 65,000 of population in that district (see table below, bringing a total of 161 district seats).
The 54 seats not allocated to districts were reserved for allocation to a national constituency.
