All 102 seats in the Chamber of Representatives and all 51 seats in the Senate
The electoral system was defined in the 1831 constitution and the electoral law of 3 March 1831. The 102 members of the Chamber of Representatives and 51 members of the Senate were elected by absolute majority in 44 electoral districts.
