Leveling seat

Leveling seats (Danish. Tillægsmandat, Swedish. Utjämningsmandat, Norwegian. Utjevningsmandater, Icelandic. Jöfnunarsæti, German. Ausgleichsmandat), commonly known also as adjustment seats, are an election mechanism employed for many years by all Scandinavian countries and Iceland in elections for their national legislatures. In 2013, Germany also introduced national leveling seats for their national parliament, the Bundestag. Leveling seats are seats of additional members elected to supplement the members directly elected by each constituency. The purpose of these additional seats is to ensure that each party's share of the total seats is roughly proportional to the parties' overall shares of votes at the national level.
