    so while the plurality would be the "mehrheit" the majority would represent the "absolute mehrheit", which means more than 50%

    in this sense:
    pluratiy = einfache Mehrheit
    majority = absolute Mehrheit

    More generally, plurality means a large number (Vielzahl) and pluralism (Pluralismus).
