    IF enough and a significant number of the rightious voters abstain from voting: SO, it can happen that like in Aruba one part@Y wins majorit@ Y also in Aruba: one electorate district - the one my Mom lives in - has Granted AVP absolute majorit@Y with 47% of all casted votes as 40% of Electorate: in Santa Cruz - even though that without Santa Cruz the MEP wouldn't have won even 3 seats - so many voters abstained from voting: thus at the ballot they decided by stayiung home without voting. This district not only decided the fate of MEP: it decided too the fate of AVP: if less voters abstained from voting AVP would've won 10 of 21= Minorit@Y: if more voters casted a vote in Santa Cruz MEP would win 9 instead of 8 and PDR 2 instead of 1 and SO AVP 10 instead of 12 in Parliament: in Israeli Knesset too that is very much possible with group of 3: Likud+HH+Labor good465 of 120 Knesset seats and not so much needed4majorit@Y: in Israeli Knesset 61 is more than enough to GOV ISRAEL
