Siba Sankar Mohanty C Saratchand

Journal of Studies in Dynamics and Change (JSDC), ISSN: 2348-7038, 2014, vol. 1, issue 4, pages 208-213

Abstract: The paper seeks to present some comparative benefits of a proportional representation voting system of democratic selection of representatives vis-à-vis the present system of voting in India characterized by the term First Past the Post System (FPTPS). Authors argue that a proportional representation system would not only result in a more participatory democracy, it will also help doing away with some of the anomalies that exist in the present system.
