Explaining MMP as Proportional Electoral Reform


The second proportional option in the upcoming plebiscite is Mixed Member Proportional, its still a good choice if perhaps a little more difficult to understand than the Dual Membership vote.zflagpei

MMP ;- MIXED MEMBER PROPORTIONAL.

In this proposal you have 18 local districts with one district MLA for each. Plus 9 seats for Provincial MLA’s

You have TWO votes. One vote for the candidate of your choice and one vote for the party of preference.

If the party of you voted for wins 25% of the party votes, they will get 25% of the seats. The 18 district candidate seats are won by the most popular local candidate.

The remaining 9 seats are assigned to deliver proportionality to the provincial candidates that were most popular for each party.

So folks you now have an understanding of the two proportional voting options, please read and be sure you have a good grasp of what is at stake. If you still have questions please do not hesitate to contact our Web Site  http://www.peipr.ca

In my Monday Blog (3rd Oct) I will explain the three other options.

God bless and keep reading.
