Abstract

The elections in Northern Ireland took place on 30 May 1996. The parapolitical parties must have a fair share of the seats in any new proposed electoral body. Comment on the distribution of seats is difficult, however, as the concentration of seats in a supergroup of seven or ten and the redistribution of seats away from the lower group of five or eight parties is a more complex issue, bedevilled by a mixture of considerations of what is right, what is fair and what is representative.
