Electoral systemEdit

Of the 75 seats in Parliament, 73 were elected by proportional representation in a nationwide constituency and two were elected in a special constituency for the Albanian minority.[3] The electoral threshold was set at 3% and seats allocated using the d'Hondt method.[3] Closed lists were used with a single list for both constituencies, although parties only had to award half their seats according to the order of the list, with the remaining half free for them to allocate.[3]
