We could simplify this to having each member of the NC vote for 3
candidates. Candidates with the largest amount of votes win, except if
there is somebody from their region that has more votes.
Each constituency would decide if it is up to their representatives to vote
or if they want to mandate a given vote. (whatever each constituency
decides is not part of the voting procedure).
