What people are saying about MMP...

"Howard Hampton's riding is the size of France. By reducing the number of ridings, you will be increasing the remaining ridings' sizes. Does this really serve to help with the representation of the people when the MPP cannot easily or realistically travel all over his/her riding?" - Brendon Bedford, Waterloo, ON

QUESTION

What is the Mixed Member Proportional System (MMP) proposed by the Citizens' Assembly as Ontario's new electoral system?

ANSWER

The Mixed Member Proportional System (MMP) is an alternative to the First Past The Post electoral system currently in use in Canada and every province, as well as in the United Kingdom and United States. It is also sometimes called the Single Member Plurality system.

First Past The Post is used by the most people - about 45% - in the world living in democracies, in about 45 countries.

MMP is currently in use in Germany, New Zealand, Bolivia, Venezuela, and Lesotho.
