Since its seems difficult to get voting reforms in,
and it is often half baked.
Maybe there should be a dedicated government
ministry for consulting with professors and
academic experts in optimising and increasing
the fairness of election.
A dedicated department will be better able to
propose new laws and reforms that would often
be stymied by political infighting
||Election reform is a fanciful notion. As any elected government will maintain the process by which it got elected, I don't see how this changes.
||The only chance would be for the people to vote the
old system out. I suggest that if there were an
election where (in the US, this is) the two major
parties can't muster a majority between them, that
would indicate that the people are sick of the whole
deal and want change. See
voteotherproject.wordpress.com for more.
||In Canada, newly elected Prime Minister Trudeau is
effectively doing exactly this, though only temporarilyhe's
committed to implementing their recommended reforms by
a specific date, after which they'll disband.
