Members of the Provincial Assemblies can vote for all Senate candidates in the general, technocrat and women-only seats but on each ballot paper, the winning candidate is determined by the number he or she has been selected for. The most important role in this process is played by the candidate who gets the most votes. The candidate who gets more votes than the required quota is declared successful in the first round while his additional votes are transferred to the candidate who is in the second priority.
