MMP More Choice

Democratic Space has a great post about the benefits of MMP (with added visual aids!!). I agree with the poster that the feature of the system I find most appealing, is the ability to split the vote between party and local candidate. MMP allows voters to vote for a popular local MPP regardless of party and still vote for their preferred party too. It is a much more positive system than FPTP which too often forces voters to vote against either their own preferred party for "strategic" reasons or against a good local MPP because he or she belongs to the "wrong party".
