Under the current system, most of us vote for people who don't get elected, so most of our votes have absolutely no effect on the outcome of the election. That's why we end up with a government that most of us voted against. Small wonder that we are so angry and frustrated with polticians.

MMP was designed to give voters the power to hold political parties accountable by giving every voter a party vote that would actually help to elect someone, every time.

If politicians are not accountable to the voters, and the government is not accountable to Parliament, then they will be accountable to someone else. Guess who?
