open list
Explanation:
En 1912 se sancionó la Ley Electoral Nº 8.871 (más conocida como Ley Sáenz Peña), que reemplazó el voto calificado por el sufragio universal, secreto y obligatorio y estableció el sistema de lista incompleta, para que las minorías puedan tener representación legislativa.

la Lista Incompleta restringe el poder de la facción mayoritaria en beneficio del derecho de la facción minoritaria a sacar una porción mínima de representantes.

There are two broad types of list systems: closed list and open list. In a closed list system--the original form of party list voting--the party fixes the order in which the candidates are listed and elected, and the voter simply casts a vote for the party as a whole.
Most European democracies now use the open list form of party list voting. This approach allows voters to express a preference for particular candidates, not just parties. It is designed to give voters some say over the order of the list and thus which candidates get elected.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Actually, lo descripto favorece a la minoría pero se hace referencia al orden de la lista para las designaciones
