Democracy Loves Strong & Stable Government (Make Votes Matter)

13 June 2022, 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Webinar organised by Make Votes Matter, featuring an international panel of electoral reform experts and politicians from around the world.

 

Can Proportional Representation deliver ‘Strong & Stable Government’? The evidence shows that yes, it can!

Legislatures elected under proportional systems have been shown to produce better, and more stable governments. Proportional Representation:

  • Puts an end to the ‘yo-yo politics’ of First Past the Post.
  • Leads to more stable decision-making, and governments backtrack less.
  • Creates a greater diversity of opinion, and creativity of thought.

As a result, governments elected under PR come up with better solutions to a range of problems. From income inequality to climate change, countries with PR deliver better answers to the existential questions of the day.
