BackgroundEdit

Traditionally elections had taken place on the first Sunday of July, but in 2015 were set to the first Sunday of June.[2]

Electoral systemEdit

The 500 members of the Chamber of Deputies were elected by two methods; 300 were elected in single-member constituencies, and 200 by proportional representation in a single nationwide constituency.[3] Constitutional reforms in 2014 led to the creation of the National Electoral Institute, replacing the Federal Electoral Institute.
