We consider every major variant of mixed electoral systems. Our analysis includes two MMP systems (Germany and New Zealand), four noncompensatory MMM systems (Japan, Lithuania, Russia, and Ukraine), and one partially compensatory MMM system (Italy). 1, the electoral rules employed in the sample countries also vary on a number of other dimensions, such as the share of seats allocated through PR, the presence of a threshold in the PR tier, PR district magnitude, and the formula utilized to allocate seats in the majoritarian component.
Mixed systems were the result of compromises in bargaining environments characterized by stalemate (Dawisha 2000). 28 / mixed electoral systems Interest in electoral reform in many long-standing democracies may have arisen due to mounting concerns about representation and political scandals. In the late 1980s and the early 1990s, the Japanese government was under constant pressure from the general public to carry out political reform because of repeated incidences of corruption. It reformed the electoral rules in part because some scholars suggested that intra-party competition, flowing from the nomination of multiple candidates to districts, promoted corruption.
Again, the Conservative Party wins the seat. In the next round, the Conservative Party’s total is adjusted and the seat is allocated to the Liberal Democratic Party. The final seat is given to Plaid Cymru. This process is repeated for each PR district. In noncompensatory mixed systems, no formal linkage exists between tiers of allocation. 17 Each party acquires the sum of the seats it received in the majoritarian and proportional components of the election. For example, eight parties in Ukraine overcame the 4 percent threshold in the PR component in 1998.
