a The percentage of votes is not related to the number of votes in the table, as voters could cast more votes in some constituencies than others, and is instead calculated based on the proportion of votes received in each constituency.[4]

b The Ecological List for the North was a joint list of the Green Alternative Party, the Green List Ecological Initiative and some independent candidates which ran in the north constituency.[5]
