    Well maybe, if it was a nationwide list. But the only country I know of that has a nationwide list with open PR is the Netherlands (they have no threshold either which makes it even more extreme). More likely I'd expect most constituencies would have 6-10 members each, which would keep the...

    General Politics Thread

    The easiest way around that is to have what's called an open list, which is where you make it so that rather than just voting for a party list, you vote for a specific candidate within the list. There are lots of countries around the world (Open list - Wikipedia) that use open list PR rather...

    The News Thread (for news that does not need a thread)

    These things are all true, but it's also worth bearing in mind that written Japanese is a much more compact language than languages using variants of the Latin alphabet are.
