Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Nevermind. Republic of China legislative election, 2008 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
For the first time in the history of Taiwan, most members of the Legislative Yuan were to be elected from single-member districts: 73 of the 113 members were chosen in such districts by first-past-the-post. Parallel to the single member constituencies, 34 seats under the Additional Member System was elected in one national district by party-list proportional representation. For these seats, only political parties whose votes exceed a 5 % threshold were eligible for the allocation. Six further seats were reserved for Taiwanese aborigines. Therefore, each elector had two ballots under parallel voting.

If this new system was designed by the DPP, that was a mighty own goal.
