THE ELECTORAL SYSTEM IN SWAZILAND

The constitution of Swaziland practices the First-past-the-post. This means that, the election of persons to any chamber of Parliament of Bucopho shall be by secret ballot at both primary and secondary levels and any other level in accordance with the First-Past-the-Post system in which the person receiving the highest number of votes is elected.

 In theory if a candidate could be elected with two votes and if every other candidate only secures a single vote, the winner is the candidate with the most votes not necessarily a majority of votes.
