* Figures correspond to the number of seats currently filled in Parliament

 

1 – South Africa: The figures on the distribution of seats do not include the 36 special rotating delegates appointed on an ad hoc basis, and all percentages given are therefore calculated on the basis of the 54 permanent seats.

 

2 – United States of America: The total refers to all voting members of the House.

 

3 – Egypt: Figures correspond to the results of elections to the Lower House completed in January 2012. Elections to the Upper House will be completed in early 2012.
