The following table includes two parts. The first part shows the outcomes of all parties of the national assembly by votes per party for each election since 1994. The second part shows the participation of the electorate for each national election since 1994. This part distinguishes between the total amount of adult people and all registered voters. Latter distinction is valid for the voter turnout.
