Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Tracing the transition of a democracy as it moves in between electoral systems, this book details the current and past public opinion surrounding New Zealand's 1999 election. As a result of the second election under the Mixed-Member Proportional (MMP) system, New Zealand elected a change in government, a minority center-left coalition of the Labor and Alliance parties. As an independent survey that objectively studies the country's political environment, this book adds to the local debate regarding the MMP electoral system, which will continue as New Zealand looks ahead to the upcoming 2002 election.
"[This book] arises out of the New Zealand Election Study (NZES) programme"--Pref.
