Mixed Member Proportional (MMP) is a great electoral system. It's fair, it means that everyone's vote counts, and it makes parliament a more diverse and representative place.
In the 2011 election, New Zealanders voted in a referendum to keep MMP as our electoral system.
A review of MMP began in February 2012, led by the Electoral Commission, to make our electoral system even more effective.
After a robust public consultation process the final report has been presented to the Minister of Justice.
Parliament will now decide what to do with the Electoral Commission's recommendations, which are likely to be enacted in time for the 2014 General Election.
