This voting system is an interesting bridge between single-member, and fully party-centric Proportional Representation.
This approach involves:
- Electing individuals in single-member constituencies, and, separately, voting for a preferred party as well.
- The single-member elections are typically decided on a FPTP basis (a serious flaw that can be easily addressed with Ranked-Pairs).
- Then, taking into account the party-affiliations of these elected members, additional members are selected from party-lists in an attempt to achieve proportionality as a whole according to the party vote.
