meiosis for haploid organisms

Suppose that meiosis occurs in the transient diploid stage of the cycle of a haploid organism of chromosome number "n". What is the probability that an individual haploid resulting from the meiotic division will have a complete parental set of centromeres (that is, a set all from one parent or all from the other parent)?
