Is MMP (Mixed Member Proportional representation) worth keeping? This presentation will weigh up the strengths and weaknesses of MMP and what can be done to improve it. We will also look at alternative systems being offered in this year's referendum, particularly the Supplementary Member system favoured by some of MMP's most vocal critics. What would be the likely outcome of any change for the make-up of future parliaments and governments ?

Associate Professor Raymond Miller is a former Head of Politics at the University of Auckland. His writing, lecturing and public speaking focus on democratic governance, political leadership, voting behaviour, and electoral systems. He is a past recipient of the Wallace Award for his contribution to the public's understanding of electoral matters.
