Bhutan has a unique two-round electoral system. In the first round, voters cast a ballot among all parties qualified for the election. The two parties that receive the most votes across the entire country advance. In the second round, the candidates of each of the top two parties compete in 47 single-member constituencies. In the second round, the candidate in each constituency with the most votes is elected.
If only two parties qualify for the election, as in 2008, then there is only a single round. Candidates from each party compete in the 47 constituencies and the candidate in each constituency with the most votes is elected.
The following table provides a list of constituencies from the 2008 and 2013 elections:
