Eg: three candidates to be elected would make the winning threshold 25%, since if one candidate had more than 25% of the vote, it’s impossible for three other candidates to get more votes than them, because that would add up to more than 100% of the votes. With four candidates, it’s 20%, and 17% for 5, and so on.
