Paragraph 22

From a purely technical point of view, the suppression of majoritarian, single-mandate constituencies could produce a clearer system.  Every voter has just one ballot (and not one for the national, and a second for the single-mandate constituencies).  The total distribution of seats among parties follows proportional criteria, so that a majority of votes result in a majority of seats.  The whole legal framework becomes simpler.  The draft is in fact much shorter than the existing Law.
