The basic principle of democracy is ”one person – one vote”. It reflects the folkstyrets linchpin that all citizens should be politically equal. This is in accordance with the equal value of all people. But fyraprocentsspärren which excludes the smaller parties might and their constituents are in breach of this democratic överideologi.
instead of voting on the party you want to govern the country, the voting in certain tactical at a nearby party to save the left in the parliament.
There is a solution that gives everyone a voice, and at the same time remove the problem with taktikröstning: the right to a second choice!
On the ballot, it can simply be a box marked ”second choice”. Where can a write check which party you want to vote on even if the first choice does not reach up to fyraprocentsgränsen. It becomes more cumbersome because all the ballots from areas over four per cent has to count if.
everyone can vote according to their opinion instead of voting tactically – and, above all, by everyone's votes are counted. Everyone gets to make their voices heard. Then, we live seriously up to the principle ”one person – one vote”.
