Electoral Systems of the World-Requests

Electoral systems, the way votes are transferred into positions of power, are an extremely important part of the democratic process. Many countries have different electoral systems, and over the next few months, I intend to profile some of the electoral systems of the world; the origins of the system, how it works, and the impacts that the system has on a nation's politics.

This post is really for people who would like to read a profile of a certain country's electoral system. The comment section is below, and if you wish to request a country, please leave a comment. All reasonable requests will be accepted.


  1. Hi, maybe you could look at Turkey thanks.

  2. Henry, great blog. I spent about a decade in France and found its electoral system sometimes alarming. Even though Jacques Chirac, under community pressure, cut the term from seven to five years, it still seems to give huge, largely unchecked power to the head of state. I'd be interested in your analysis. Thanks kindly.

    1. Thank you. I will do a post on France, but in the meantime, if you are interested in France I have done a post on it last year. http://www.internationalelections.info/2014/10/is-europes-far-right-heading-for-power_17.html
