The single transferable vote was chosen with a majority of 66.67%. It was established as the electoral system for the Chamber of Deputies by the fourth constitution, enacted on 15 May 2009.<ref>[https://sites.google.com/site/francisvillearchives/legislative-election-may-2009 National Archives of Francisville: Legislative Election (May 2009)] Retrieved 27/11/2016</ref> According to the constitution, the number of deputies varied according to the size of the population based on the most recent census. The Chamber was composed of one deputy for every five citizens plus one additional deputy. The constitution did not rule out the use of [[w:Electoral district|districting]] but this was never necessary in practice due to the small size of the Chamber. The [[2009_Francisville_general_election|first election]] to the Chamber was held from 28 May to 3 June 2009.
