Due to the fact that no party in the country could reach the 151 seats required to form a government alone and could not reach a consensus on the coalition government, this time the absolute majority system will be applied and the party that receives 38 percent of the votes will be able to form a government alone. There will also be a ‘bonus chair’ application in the second round.
