STV - the right system for Wellington

A good article from Nigel Roberts explaining why STV is a better system than First Past the Post.

I have now led two campaigns for STV in Wellington and appreciate Wellingtonians' support for the system. Many people have a good understanding of it which is not surprising given how political and educated many people are in this city.

We have now had to have mayors elected with 50% support of the city for 9 years, why would we ever go back to the old system? Should be adopted for all Council elections and probably Parliament too, each MP should have their own electorate.
