  5. Z- Is the  total number of to- up seats.
  6.  Z= Y – (minus) seats won electively by gender Y and then round off Z to the nearest whole number.

C.THE TOTAL TOP-UP SEATS (Z), TO BE DISTRIBUTED AS FOLLOWS:

IEBC to rank gender Y candidates’ performance in a general election leaving out outright winning candidates, as follows:

  1.  Votes earned as a percentage of votes cast
  2.  List all gender Y candidates’ performance in descending order of percentages earned.
  3. Allocate the Z seats in descending order till the seats are fully allotted.

D.  Retain nominations for other SIGs, and ensure seats are shared 50:50 to each gender.
