As we've noted before in previous analysis, one effect of the Single-Non Transferable Vote system, used in all of Afghanistan's parliamentary elections to date, is that candidates often win with very small shares of the vote in their respective provinces, since voters only receive one ballot for a multi-member constituency and coordinated party voting is very difficult.
