Article 2. (MODIFICATIONS AND INCORPORATION INTO LAW NO. 026 OF 30 JUNE 2010). Amending paragraph II and incorporates the third paragraph to the article 56 of the law 026 of 30 June 2010, law on the Electoral regime, according to the following content:? II. For the distribution of the hundred and thirty (130) seats among the nine departments, establishes the following procedure: minimum allocation of seats to the departments with lowest population. To assign seats to departments with smaller population, adopted the following methodology: establishing a line basis to identify the departments that have lower population and those with highest number of inhabitants, for this purpose use the statistical measure of central tendency, called arithmetic mean and generally when working with people is known as population mean.

Also determines the population mean of the departments with: i) greater number of inhabitants and, ii) lower population. As in the previous point, use the statistics for this calculation.

The electoral reason, which relates the population mean of the departments with largest number of inhabitants, with the population mean of the departments with lowest population is.

Relates the number of total seats to distribute (130) rightly the electoral operation that allows to calculate the amount of seats that must be assigned to the departments with lowest population.

Divides the number of seats obtained by the previous relationship between the departments with lowest population. The result comes to constitute the number of seats that corresponds to each one of the departments with fewer inhabitants. For the allocation of seats to each Department, the whole number of the quotient is taken into account and if it came accompanied by decimal or fraction, according to the result of the mathematical algorithm, the rounding rule applies to the departmental distribution.

Assigning seats minimum departments with lower degree of economic development. To assign seats to departments with lower degree of economic development, adopted the following methodology: identifies the index numbers and associated with the data you have: the index of human development (IDH) of Bolivia as an index sub-zero and the index of human development (IDH) of the Department with the lowest human development index as sub-uno.

Two weighting factors are determined expressed in quantitative terms. The first factor is connected with the total number of seats and the second with the rest of seats resulting from the first assignment by lower population.

Relate, in the formula, the index numbers with the weighting factors. In the numerator the index of human development (IDH) of Bolivia, with the factor, and in the denominator smaller index of human development (IDH) departmental, with the factor. The result comes to constitute the number of seats to be allocated to the departments with lower degree of economic development. Depending on the outcome, it will be to distribute seats to one or more departments. For the allocation of seats to the departments, the whole number of the quotient is taken into account and if it came accompanied by decimal or fraction, according to the result of the mathematical algorithm, the rounding rule applies to the departmental distribution.

Allocation of seats by the principle of proportionality. Each Department is assigned seats according to the proportional system in the following way: is considered the number of inhabitants having each Department.

Divides the population of each of the departments, on between splitters composed of natural numbers (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, etc.) in correlative and continuously, to distribute the rest of existing seats after the application of the principle of equity.

They are ordered from major to minor, electoral ratios obtained from the divide operation, to cover the amount of the total seats, remaining after assigning them by the principle of equity, to the respective departments.

He is assigned to each Department, the proportional amount of seats that mathematically.
