“The case for Proportional Representation (PR) is fundamentally the same as that for representative democracy. Only if an assembly represents the full diversity of opinion within a nation can its deci- sions be regarded as the decisions of the national itself.” Encyclopedia Britannica.
“The current “first-past-thepost” system is undemocratic. On that ground alone, it needs to be replaced.” The Economist (1991 Editorial).
