Example text

Because public awareness about MMP was low, the budget of the Electoral Commission was later augmented, with $5 million allocated for education programmes in the 1995/96 and 1996/97 financial years. In 1996 the Electoral Commission was given the task of monitoring donations to political parties and their election expenses. Prior to this, there had been no legal limits on national campaign expenditure by political parties, nor any disclosure provisions applying to large campaign donations. The format of the MMP ballot paper was altered.

National recognised that rules designed for two-party parliamentary competition were no longer appropriate, and that its chances of remaining the dominant governing party in New Zealand were much reduced under MMP. The government's hold over the House had been weakened because of its narrow victory in 1993, followed by progressive defections from its ranks. Rules which recognised the greater weakness of governments under MMP and reflected the importance of proportionality were therefore in the interests of all parties.

Experience of New Zealand's unbroken transition to PR supports various conjectures derived from rational actor assumptions, and confirms their analytical value. However, various qualifications are in order. The boundary between party advantage and the promotion of political stability is not always clear. Defection from parties is better explained than non-defection, which still presents a puzzle which perhaps cannot be resolved within this framework. High levels of transitional poll volatility support the hypothesis that a more open political market will foster competition, but only in the short term.
