Threshold: 5%. This could also mean a lower chance on an overhang.

do not like the way a member can get into pariament just because they are a list MP. Basically they are not voted in as a person but as a number in a list

Am sick and tired of one MP winning an electorate
If party doesnt win 5% of party vote they get NO
No 5%, NO list MP's.

BY ELECTION candidacy should not be available to already sitting list members
DUAL CANDIDACY Candidates should only be able to stand in an electorate or on the list NOT BOTH
ORDER ON LIST Preferential voting to cover the whole of New Zealand not just electorate by electorate
OTHER !!VERY IMPORTANT!! List candidates must only be selected by some system of public input. Nominations only from the party leads to a sort of "jobs for the boys" situation in which the public really has no choice.

Requested change: Candidates for List Seats cannot stand for Electoral Seats and vice versa.
At present a candidate can stand for an Electoral Seat and be high enough up the pary list to ensure thay gain (or keep) a seat in parliament. This is not fair and equitable or true democracy. It is playing party politics which is not what the Electoral System is designed for.
