Electoral Council of Australia and New Zealand (2013) define proportional representation as a voting system that helps in electing multi-member electorates candidates. Proportional representation system uses a larger district as opposed to a smaller one that is used in single candidate voting system. The winners of the multiple member elections are determined by the proportionate number of votes each party receives during the elections. For instance, in a district where there are ten representative posts, a party that acquires 50% of the total votes gets five representatives while another one with 30% of the votes gets three representatives and if another one gets 20% it gets two posts. The system discards the winner take all system where only the candidate or party with majority votes gets elected and the others are ignored. Parliament of Australia (1999) argued that there are myriads of flaws in the Australian electoral system where only the people voting for winning candidate gets to be represented in the congress while the rest of the voters who, at times, may be the majority do not get represented. It is on this basis that the parliamentary issue called for changes in the electoral system to ensure that there is proper representation of the people in both lower and upper houses. While senate has implemented the proportional representation, the house of representation is yet to change the electoral system.
