A party can form government if they win 28 seats or more.
If no one reaches the 28 seats on their own, then we expect negotiations between parties to form a coalition government.
Parties that qualify to be in parliament need to receive 5 percent of the total votes in the elections.
Based on the current count and the percentage of votes received - the projected seats for the FijiFirst is 25, People’s Alliance 22, National Federation Party 5 and SODELPA 3. These projections will change as more votes come in from polling stations. Please note this is a projection based on the votes counted so far.
