If percentage of the vote translated to seats 1-1 then 25% of the vote would get you 41 seats but that never happens. That is the beauty of the MSSTV PR that we run. It is also why 42/43% is an overall majority even though it is not 50%.
the vote nationally has no effect on the vote in CSC.

The quota is the quota. If SF exceed the quota they'll get a seat.

If they don't exceed the quota they may still get a seat as the last man standing - I just cant see what 25% has to do with anything?
