EDITOR:

New Zealand adopted mixed-member proportional representation (MMP) voting in 1993 and voted to retain it in 2011. I have had the good fortune of spending a fair bit of time in New Zealand over the past seven years and consequently, have seen how well it performs. It produces a parliament which is more civil and collaborative, less partisan and confrontational and it ensures that all views are represented. So, as the No side says, "Know the facts," because if you do, you will almost certainly vote YES.
