The information campaign for the MMP referendum has been announced today.
There is a wealth of information on the Electoral Commission website that is worth checking out – remember the future of our democracy is at stake here!
We think MMP is the fairest system as it makes everyone’s vote count equally no matter where they live in the country.
FPP on the other hand is a winner takes all system that often leaves the majority of voters without representation. It tends to create minority governments with absolute power (and despite what your friendly business moguls might say – SM is essentially the same as FPP).
Also worth remembering that if people vote to retain MMP – it will be reviewed so that any niggles with it can be ironed out.
Let’s keep a fair system, lets keep MMP!
