Aoteroa/new zealand has such an interesting and unusual electoral system you guys. I watched the 2011 election broadcast the other day and I’d like to give a specific shout-out to my sweet and patient expat Kiwi friend Kim, who puts up with continual questions from ignorant Australians like “who’s that guy? what’d he say? what’s the deal with Māori electorates? why don’t they have preferential voting? that’s stupid. how does the list work? why did the Nationals win? I blame you, Kim.”
my point is that Māori electorates are interesting and you should read about them.
