The parties on MMP

15 May 2013_Party Positions on MMP

A useful table showing the total lack of consensus on the recommendations.

I’d be careful concluding that retaining the status quo is beneficial to . Neither United Future or ACT got any List MPs via the one seat threshold in 2011, and frankly I am dubious they would so in 2014.

If anything the party most likely to bring in a List MP might be Mana.

Also lowering the threshold from 5% to 4% is most likely to benefit the Conservative Party, which is a potential coalition partner for National. So again retaining the status quo is not really of much benefit to them – in fact could disadvantage them.
