Question # 3
How is the political
structure in New Zealand?
There are 120 members of the New Zealand
parliament. They are elected for 3 year terms.
Parliament members are elected using the mixed member
proportional representation voting system.
At elections, each citizen has 2 votes:
1. One vote for a political party.
2. One vote for a local member of parliament.
Political parties are represented in Parliament in proportion
to the share of votes each party won in the party vote in
the general election.
A political party that wins at least 5% of the vote on
parties gets that share of the seats in Parliament.
For example, if a party gets 30% of the party vote,
this party will get roughly 0.30 * 200 = 36 members
In 1893, New Zealand became the first country
in the world where women got the right to vote.
