Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Ah, many thanks, but now I have to ask you to find where the party list votes ("Diputados Plurinominales") are truly displayed... When I click "Resultados nacionales", there is only one set of numbers - which must be the vote for President. When I click "Resultados departamentales", there is again only one set of numbers, and from the one department where the final result has been called (Cochabamba), it is clear these are the votes for Senators.

Now, the results for those representatives that I could find:

Senators (in "Resultados departamentales"): here is an incredible number of empty votes (25.2%).  in five departments there is a MAS landslide, but in the four others PODEMOS won similarly, in two of these MAS was only third - so I'd predict 13-12 or vice vera for PODEMOS and MAS, and 1-1 for two others (one left one right) - razor-thin decision of majority.

FPTP-elected MPs: this is kind of a mystery, for there are 70, not 68 election districts in the nine departments - I counted 42 for MAS, 2 for centre-left MNR, 24 for right-wing PODEMOS and 1 for also right-wing UN, and one without information (Chuquisaca-6).

But any way I look at it, with the proportional votes added in, MAS must have something like 75 MPs out of 130.

*Lunatic*, n.
One whose delusions are out of fashion.
