The ability to kick out an elected representative is critical for a good system. List systems (including the one we use for Euro election) fail dismally. First-Past-the-Post is little better, with its many safe seats. STV, or something like it, seems to be the best option.
I couldn't agree more. It works in Ireland, so why not here?Another feature of the Israeli system makes forming governments difficult: the low "threshold". Thus some very minority views have at least one representative in the Knesset.
