Simply Proportional Representation

The people of Democracy Craft, through their elected Representatives in the Congress and the force of law ordained to that Congress by the people through the constitution, do hereby enact the following provisions into law:​

1 - Short Title and Enactment
(1) This Act may be cited as the “Second System of Proportional Representation”.
(2) This Act shall be enacted immediately upon its signage.
(3) Authored by Vice President hugebob23456

2 - Reasons
(1) The first system unfairly favored parties over Independents.
(2) The first system had a lot of mathematical gymnastics that were unnecessary.

3 - Terms
(1) On the forum thread for the election, each candidate may declare their intent to contest the election. Candidates with a party affiliation must make their party affiliation known to join the party’s vote pool. The Party’s Leader may notify the DPA of anyone falsely joining their party pool and that candidate will be made an Independent unless they correct their party affiliation.
(2) All people eligible to vote shall be granted only one vote in all elections. During polling, each candidate is to be listed separately on the ballot with their party in parentheses by their name.
(3) At the conclusion of the election, seats shall be allocated as follows:
(a) Once voting has concluded, all votes cast to candidates of the same party are pooled. Independents shall stand on their own as if each Independent is their own party.
(b) The number of votes the party or independent as a whole received shall be divided by the total number of votes cast to determine the “Party Share”.
(c) The total number of seats being contested shall be multiplied by the Party Share to determine the party’s seats.
(d) All parties and independents shall be awarded a number of seats equal to the whole number determined in the previous step.
(e) Should any seats remain unallocated, the party with the next highest decimal seats shall be granted a seat until all seats are allocated.
(f) The order in which the seats will be distributed to candidates will be determined by their popularity in the election, with seats being awarded to the most popular candidate of the party first, then going down from most popular to least popular to fill all of a party’s seats. If a party wins more seats than it has candidates, its extra seats shall be reapportioned in accordance with point e.
