Imagine that a country is trying to figure out which electoral system would best represent its population. It has a large number of minorities that are interspersed throughout the country, is fairly small, and the political parties that control the government want to maintain tight control over their candidates. With regards to list systems, district magnitude, and proportional vs. first-past-the-post representation, and a federal vs. unitary government, which would make the most sense for this country? Why?
This country is best suited for a proportional representation system, with closed lists, high district magnitude, and a unitary government. Proportional representation is important to make sure that all of the minorities are represented in the government, which may not be so if a majoritarian system prevails. With a first-past-the-post system, votes are based on whoever receives the majority wins. In a proportional system, parties are represented based on what percentage of the vote they win. This prevents the majority from dominating and provides a voice for smaller parties. Because the dominant political parties prefer to maintain control over their candidates, a closed list system would be best. This means that candidates would not be ranked based on who the electorate preferred, and would instead be ranked based on who the party preferred to win in the case of electoral success. A unitary government would likely be best for this country, as it is very small and a federal system could create unnecessary gridlock. However, there are small countries like Switzerland that have succeeded with a federal system. So, it would be up to the government to decide this. When it comes to district magnitude, it should be larger than one. Because the minorities are interspersed throughout the population, a district magnitude of 1 may only leave room for the majority party to gain representation. With a larger district magnitude, more people from each district are called to represent it, allowing for better representation of minorities.
