I believe the 5% of electorial votes for minor parties should be increased to at least 10%.This would eliminate some minor parties whose main aim in parliament is only to benefit their own agenda and not that of the good of the country.

To ensure that there is clear representation, I submit that the threshold be lifted to 10%, and if a party obtains no electorate seats that maximum number of list MPs that can represent the party be limited to 6. This will encourage more electorate representation.

List Seats Should be eliminated
By election candidates should be elected by public from electorate list
Dual candidcy should no be allowed
Order of Candidates should be set by party
Overhang should be eliminated to comply with a fixed total of MP's
Proportion of electorate to List seats ,Should be a minimum of 5% of total vote
There should be a maximum of 90 seats in total in Parliament

To avoid the situation as illustrated in Epsom, I think the one-seat threshold should be removed. The 5% threshold should either be removed or reduced.

Eligibility for list seats should be 4%. The present level discriminates against minority groups that might in essence be campaigning on one major issue, rather like a referendum. The lower threshold would force the major Parties to be more aware and to take more notice of significant single issues.

MY VIEWS ON MMP FOLLOW

THRESHOLDS: At least one voted in MP plus a 8-10% of party vote
BY-ELECTIONS: Yes a list MP should be able to stand.
DUAL CANDIDACY: No not for both
ORDER OF CANDIDATES: Political parties to rank list
OVERHANG: If a party wins more elected seats than it would under its share of the party
PROPORTIONING OF SEATS: One list seat for every four elected seats providing the party
|30 May 2012||
Too many non elected list canditates qualify for a seats when the threshold is 5%.

All parties must have at least one electorate seat before being able to take other list members into Parliament
