The Israeli Election Compass

January 21st, 2013 at 1:00 pm by David Farrar

The Israel Democracy Institute have developed an election compass where you can see which parties in Israel are closest to you, if you were an Israeli voter.


I ended up in the bottom left quadrant, fairly near Kadima overall but slightly to the left of Labor on the horizontal axis (peace, territories, security, religion) but slightly more centrist than Likud on the vertical axis (economy, welfare, human rights, law).

NZ Political Compass

December 22nd, 2010 at 1:50 pm by David Farrar

Act on Campus have been trying to place NZ political parties and their youth sections on the Political Compass.

They want to crowd source it and have as many people as possible answer the survey on behalf of a political party – the idea being that you don’t answer with your personal views, but with how you perceive that party would answer. Then post the party name and their two scores in the comments.
