"In a first-past-the-post system, a party can win a majority government with less than half the popular vote. That's not democratic, and it's not the government the voters deserve.

I am not necessarily against MMP, but I do fear the inevitable power brokering that goes on after the election. Irael and Italy come to mind.Do those governments work.I suppose so to a degree.but the voter is still left out of the decision of who governs in power once the deals are done.

I would like to see someting in the MMP but not what was passed this time around.

I really dont know why we have to change things.Both Canada and the USA Britain and many European Countries ( arguably the best places to live on the planet) are goverened like this.IT is usually those who do not win at the ballot box who wish to re- jig the system in thier favour.

I dread a Jack Layton type having any power at all.He is downright dengerous with his naive policies.ITs why they have never governed.
